* SceneryPorn: Everywhere! It's usually more important than the dialogue, because a lot of what makes this manga special is the sense of wonder it evokes. It's meant to be read slowly.

Added DiffLines:

* ChildProdigy: Kajika states that she learns a lot of things faster than Isaki does, including piloting the Cub, which explains why she's much more capable of piloting an aircraft on instinct while being bad at math homework. She's somewhat worried Isaki's habit of borrowing the Cub when she can't will allow him to one up her in this regard. [[spoiler: Though it would make sense that she's better considering she's actually his ''older'' sister.]]

* CoolPlane: The Super Cub and Sayori's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitts_Special Pitts Special]]. Special mention goes to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_C-130_Hercules Lockheed C130 Hercules]], or Blacknose as it's nicknamed. Isaki and Kajika always try to witness a swarm of thwm fly overhead their area every month. Further along the story they get to ride in one, and to their surprise [[spoiler: it's autopiloted by a personable AI.]]

* MysteriousWoman: Shiro counts as one, considering there's also a lot even her sister doesn't know of her. [[spoiler: Comes full frontal when she reappears in the real world and Isaki sees her.]]



* StrongFamilyResemblance: Played with in that two sets of people are told they resemble one another without being related to each other: Shiro and the Gotenba Station Manager, and Isaki and Kajika. The latter more often when other people see them together for the first time.

* RidiculouslyDifficultRoute: The journey towards Gotenba includes a path that involves weaving through incredibly narrow openings in between two mountain ranges, with only two pitstops in the entire route. Though it's very dangerous for amateurs, as long as they know the Tate Road within the path they have a good chance of making it through.



* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Not in-cast, but it's stated that Sayori is essentially the only female pilot in her area. There is also the fact that we barely see ''any'' other female pilot outside the main cast appear. The fact that Shiro has such a reputation among pilots as a woman is partially why Sayori idolizes her.



* SweetTooth: Shiro has a particular affinity for a brand of ginger drink that's apparently too strong for any of the other characters at first. Isaki getting used to the flavor can be taken as a sign of his growth.



* TheEndingChangesEverything: [[spoiler: It's a DreamLand, and the Cub is a metaphor. Though some aspects of it like the ginger soda bottle and Shiro herself are present in the real world, [[AmbiguousEnding it's never explained what quite happened.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoHeroToHisValet: Shiro is a very popular person in various locations and a legend among pilots, but to Isaki, Kajika, and most of the locals, she's mostly a lazy individual who will sometimes shirk responsibilities and be a bit irresponsible.

Added DiffLines:

* PartlyCloudyWithAChanceOfDeath: Mountains and plant life aren't the only things that became ten times larger, lighting strikes and even hail are incredibly deadly if the weather permits.

* LittleStowaway: Kajika did this in the opening chapter when Isaki flies the Cub towards Tokyo Tower. Further stowaway attempts are often thwarted because the extra weight [[RealityEnsues legitimately wastes more fuel than it would without her on.]]



* PottyEmergency: On particularly longer trips, Sayori doesn't last very long and often rushes her landing very dangerously to hurry to the nearest bathroom.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are a lot of prolonged shots of Isaki riding his scooter, including [[spoiler: when he gets a vision on Mt. Fuji of him riding it while contemplating to going atop a regular Mt. Fuji, which directly ties into the ending where the Cub is an actual scooter and the whole story was a DreamLand.]]

* ObliviousToLove: Kajika to Acchan's feelings for her, which she plays off as a pure intent to get her to join the Athletics club. Apparently everyone knows it but her.
