Maya's potential for acting is noticed by former actress Chigusa Tsukikage. Before an accident on stage that [[GoodScarsEvilScars left her heavily scarred]] and [[IllGirl with ongoing health problems]], she was considered the top theatrical actress in Japan, if not the world. She owns the right to a legendary masterpiece play, "Kurenai Tenyou" (The Crimson Goddess). The playwright considered the title role so difficult that Chigusa Tsukikage was the only actress capable of performing it, and gave her full rights to the play.

Added DiffLines:

* Cliffhanger: We never get the see how many of the plays end. Especially tragic for the fictional ones since you can't look it up anywhere.


Added DiffLines:

* CutShort: Maya gets the script for White Jungle, monologues about how different the character is and then... the movie starts airing in cinemas without us seeing anything about Maya getting into the role or anything else.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: Unnamed actors risk ruining their own play by swapping out sweets with mud in an important scene. Reason? They want to humilate Maya who never did anything to them.


Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: Many actors get presented as big talents and serious rivals for Maya. She outperforms them all (except Ayumi).
**Averted with Utako Himekawa who was long praised as great actress without the readers ever seeing her perform. In the Miracle Worker arc she finally shows off her skills, turns out she is one of the few actors who can act on par with Maya.

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Hajime Onodera. While most other characters have gotten retribution for their deeds, his crimes are never punished [[spoiler: and he even ends up as a canidate for directing The Crimson Goddess]]


Added DiffLines:

**Also, many actors and other characters only appear for an arc and then disappear forever. For example the idol that said she would try to act better for her second movie after seeing Maya's performance is never heard from again.

Due to Glass Mask's age and fame, it is often referenced to in various other media, many with similar themes such as Star Project to works without any similarity at all like YuruYuri. It is often ''the'' animanga that other animanga talk about. However, the series never reached American shores. It is often considered an obscure one in America unlike the popularity it enjoys in its native Japan and Europe and so these references tend to fly over the heads of American audiences.
