* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses - Erika is the princess of the Magic Kingdom. This does not stop her from having to follow rules or face... consequences. * [[FirstGirlWins First Boy Wins]] - No matter how hard Sei tries to win Hime-chan's heart, or Hikaru to Daichi, Hime-chan and Daichi meet each other before any other plausible love interest combination appears. * FirstNameBasis - it takes a while, but Hime-chan, Daichi, and "Arisaka" know each other on a first name basis by the thirteenth episode. * ForgottenPhlebotinum - the time-reversal magic would've been very useful on at least one occasion where Hime-chan completely forgets about it. * FullHouseMusic - one of the piano pieces in the soundtrack is used this way. * GenderVocabularySlip - Hime-chan saying "I'm in the same middle school" leads to Daichi suddenly realise she's a girl -- she uses the female-only "atashi"

* {{Honorifics}} - the usual ones show up, but note the scenes where Hime-chan's underclassmen in the theatre club refer to her as "Hime-chan-senpai," an unusual construction that displays conflicting interests of friendliness and respect.
