* Is it REALLY a harem series? The MC has only 3.5 people in his harem. One is an underaged elementary school kid he refers to as jailbait in the manga, & the other is a boy. There's also more than 1 male character in the spotlight & one has his own romance issues going on.

** I wouldn't go as far as calling Class F the equivalent of the special needs class. They just happen to have to worst grades due to laziness, not excelling in anything outside their specialty, or other circumstances.

* Season 2, Episode 1. Why does Aiko Kudou get invited to go to the beach with the gang? Akihisa's only met her once, and the other girls don't know her that well either. Only Shouko has talked to her more than once. Also, why is Miharu's silhouette shown when Akihisa is talking to his sister about inviting girls if she was not invited and for once didn't invite herself?

** The author admitted in the last volume's afterword that 645 probably shouldn't be considered correct, but left it for consistency (he then mentions something about "changes in common knowledge"). The situation overall is confusing since it appears according to the Wikipedia article that some reforms were already implemented in 645 before the edicts in 646, which might be why the traditional date is considered to be 645.

* This avatar system has to be very expensive for the school. So what’s the point of it? It doesn’t even seem to help students learn. I guess a class is supposed to win by getting good test scores. But class F has managed to get several wins by tactics rather than strength (such as attacking a single high scoring student in a large group. Besides, they almost never try to study to improve their chances of beating classes. Class F is practically cheating the system.

system.
** As stated somewhere, the goal of the system is to force the students to work as a team instead of working individually. Hence, Class F was able to win battles ''despite'' generally getting low scores. And of course, you have to take Himeji (a student with Class A smarts who landed in Class F for skipping the placement exams due to sickness) into account. At first, she is pretty much the only reason why Class F wins battles. But over time, their main fighters are improving, so probably they were able to win battles without much action from Himeji herself.

** You see Hideyoshi wearing obviously feminine clothings while thinking they are for guys (S1 EP6), so it's fair to say that Hideyoshi doesn't have a clear idea about the differences between male and female clothings.

* Has it ever occurred to Hideyoshi that maybe if he just got a haircut and stopped wearing hairclips people wouldn't mistake him for a girl that often? I'm sorry, but the more I think about it, the more I think that Hideyoshi being mistaken for a girl is his own dang fault for growing his hair out like that and wearing girly clips in it. It doesn't take much for him to change his hairstyle to make himself look at least a little less girly.

*** This is the way I personally view anime like this. Everything is exaggeration. That might seem obvious, but just keep it in mind. For example, in my mind when Minami breaks Akihisa's back, he is actually giving him a medium punch. When Akihisa screams in pain, he is really just giving an "Ouch!". Watching it like that, it becomes clear what they are doing. They are teasing each other. You do not tease someone on something s/he doesn't care about, since the whole fun in teasing is seeing the reaction. That's why the gang try to pair up Yuuji and Shouko. That's why Aiko keep acting sexy in front of Muttsulini. That's why Akihisa point out Minami's flat chest. Because these acts will get a reaction. And that is why the focus on Hideyoshi is his gender, and not his bust size. Hideyoshi doesn't care about his bust size, so you won't get a reaction if you point it out. But Hideyoshi cares about his gender, so you will get a reaction if you point that out. So they will not mention Hideyoshi's bust size, but his gender.

** According to Japanese wiki, the reform occurred in 646. So it's safe to say the Japanese also consider it to have occurred in 646. At least that is the official issue of the reform edict. I can think of three possible reasons for this. The official edict was issued in the first day of the first month of the Second year of Taika, which is 646. 1) Many people at the time use winter solstice or the day after to mark New Year, which would make the edict's issue date and therefore the reform's first date December 2x of 645. Need to ask an expert for this one. 2) Historically speaking, entire series of event has to include the political revolution before hand, which occurred in 645, which is what the author and whatever history textbook he based his answer from was getting at. 3) The author's simply mistaken.
