Knowing they live in a fictional series allows them to enter a "backstage" room that only they can see to discuss the story and the "conditions" within the Tenkaichi Series while standing outside of it. Each episode evolves around a different murder mystery theme/trope and discussing and playing with all the tropes that come along with it.

* HotSpringsEpisode: Merged with Fujii's DayInTheLimeLight episode, as Banzo and Tenkaichi point out this is the "Two-Hour Suspense" episode aimed at middle-aged women who want to see luxary. Mid-way through Fujii is told to use the onsen to keep viewers from changing the channel, but she refuses. Moriyama goes in her place.

Originally he had an estranged Japanese wife and his teenage daughter, Hanako, [[spoiler:who killed herself]]; in the final episode he has a blonde non-Japanese wife and a child-aged daughter (also blonde) who has another name. Banzo lampshades the difference but accepts it.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: As one of Fujii's conditions is that she fall in love with Tenkaichi, Ogawara is always willing to push them together whether she likes it or not. His efforts include leaving the room so the two can have a scene alone, and making sure to point out any hint of jealousy Fujii shows towards Tenkaichi. He's quite pleased when they start becoming closer of their own accord.

Added DiffLines:

* MysteryOfTheWeek: With every episode there's a murder and solving the twist/mystery - the two aren't always the same. It's also not something the other characters necessarily care about. In the first episode, nobody cared how the locked room mystery was formed after the murderer had been revealed.
