* SweetDreamsFuel: Between the astonishingly innocent setting and so many lovely moments that the [[Heartwarming/GirlFriends Heartwarming page]] has to single out the best of the best, this series can quell any fears in the world. Also manages to be this In-Universe: Mari falls asleep after several chapters and has the most beautiful dreams.

** Another non-cosplay example: during the class trip, Taguchi visits a second ghost-story session (Naru-chan had already forbidden them after the first) because one of the story-tellers can "[[Film/TheSixthSense see dead people]]".

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyPrepared: Tamamin manages to play this trope straight while simultaneously taking "[[CosplayOtakuGirl Crazy]]" and "Prepared" in very different ways.
** Her bag is always packed tight with manga in case she has an 'emergency'. "Like if I need something to read."
** On the class trip, she brought a hand-fan and a Victorian-era parasol... on the grounds that "You never know when you might need a Victorian-era parasol".

* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: References when Mari and Akko end up in a stalemate just short of "TheyDo" because neither of them is quite sure what to do in this situation and thinks the other is more experienced; a caption declares them "Two Bokes" with Sugi wondering if she is the Tsukkomi. The official translation instead declares them "two clueless virgins".

* ShowerOfAngst: Mari gets one when she thinks that (three kisses into their relationship) Akko is just being friendly and kind to her. This sounds a lot worse than it is; Akko and her clique are firm believers in [[SkinshipGrope frisky friendships]].

* BrokenPedestal: Sugi's DayInTheLimelight shatters her previous image of [[spoiler:her old elementary teacher]].



* HypocriticalHumour
** Shortly after Akko and Mari get off a train, they meet Sugi, who's complaining about how molesters are always trying to grab at her. Akko (who had rather less-than-subtly told Mari that she was open if Mari was feeling frisky) [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial quickly and suspiciously]] denounces molesters as scum.
** In one of the extra stories, Tamamin tells off Sugi and Akko for playing mean pranks on Naru-chan-sensei... only for Sugi to reprimand "You draw pictures of Naru-chan '''naked'''." Unbeknowst to all of them, Naru-chan is watching them, and her opinion of Tamamin [[OpinionFlipFlop quickly switches from]] "seems like a nice girl" to "the evilest one of all".



* LoveAtFirstSight: [[[spoiler: Played with as it's implied that Akko became obsessed with Mari after first noticing her, but didn't fall in love, or at least realize she was in love, with her until long after the two became friends]]

By the end of the manga, she's got a sixth, and is trying to decide whether or not to go to a mixer because [[SerialEscalation she doesn't want to pick up a seventh]].



-->'''Sugi:''' I need a day to myself...



* SecretSecretKeeper: Sugi, if only because she loves to tease Akko and Mari with just the right words.



* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Akko threatens to stab any would-be train molesters with a safety pin.

* OnlySaneMan: Sugi. When Akko needs advice on her relationship with Mari, she cuts through the crap, asks her if she wants to do it with her "friend," and then [[ShipperOnDeck tells her to get a move on already before someone steals Mari away.]]
