* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The setting is vaguely Japanese, with places like New Tokyo Airport being mentioned, and all the characters have Japanese names. However, the architecture that makes up the different settings varies between Japanese, Italian, French, German, and British (with Japanese architecture actually being the least common of the styles, and French being the most common), and famous locations from other countries often show up in the scenery. It doesn't help that the only other countries they mention are all fictional (besides America), implying this story occurs in a different world than our own--likely one in which Japan had far earlier and more extensive contact with Western culture.

** It's not actually clear that the story takes place in Japan, or at least, ''our'' world's Japan. Many shots around the town show locations borrowed from other places in the world and architecture styles from Japan, France, England, and Germany. A notable example is the climax setting, referred to as simply "the Monastery" in the series, which is clearly Mont Saint-Michel, an famous island monastery in France. While Tokyo is mentioned as close by, the fact that other locations near by are from Europe makes it clear that their geography isn't like our world, so who's to say their religious locales are either?

Despite being a MagicalGirl, her "magic" is explicitly all stage magic, but she routinely pulls off impossible feats, such as being carried off by just a [[{{Balloonacy}} a handful of balloons]].
