* PoorCommunicationKills: The whole debacle of [[spoiler: rumors and gossip stating that Sana and Naozumi are a couple while they film a movie. Not only does Akito decide to date Fuuka as sort of a rebound, but Sana gets physically assaulted by rabid Naozumi fans to the extent that they literally ''break her leg''. When Sana finally returns to school after shooting the movie ''none'' of her friends ask her about Naozumi, including Akito. They all just assume she'll just talk about her relationship with them, but then they all get insulted when she ''doesn't''. Sana only finds out they believed the rumors when she feels left out when hanging out with two couples (Akito and Fuka, Tsuyoshi and Aya) until they bring up Naozumi on topic]].

to:

* PoorCommunicationKills: Happens ''all the time'', mostly in the romantic relationships:
** Akito and his father used to have a good relationship when he was three... Then his sister, who resented him for [[DeathByChildbirth their mother dying giving birth to him]], told him why she targeted him and that their father too hated him, ruining their relationship. {{Justified}} because Akito was three.
*** Having guessed something was off, Akito's father tried to repair the relationship, and was actually succeeding... Then he made a joke about two spheric gasometers being actually dinosaur eggs (Akito loves dinosaurs) and Akito didn't hear him admitting it was a joke, ruining everything when he found out what they actually were because he thought his father had willingly lied to him.
** Before the series, Rei and Asako had broken up because he ''thought'' she was leaving him to become an actress, and disappeared before she could clear everything out.
** When in Osaka, Fuuka was very friendly with a boy named Nagaishi, and everyone, including them, expected them to get together soon. Then Fuuka remembered she [[spoiler:had her first kiss from Akito in kindergarten]] and, surprised, shouted about it... And the boys of her school decided she had a boyfriend, with Nagaishi avoiding her every time she tried to explain.

* AscendedExtra: It's a given that the animated adaptation gave some characters as Mami or Gomi much more [[CharacterDevelopment development]] or focus than their original counterparts. Even the MC from the "Kodomo no Omocha" TV Show was transformed into real-life comedian Zenjiro.

During 2005, Creator/FUNimation started to release licensed [=DVDs=] of the anime series in North America under its abbreviated title, "Kodocha". It is interesting to mention, that the dub of the first DVD had been censored heavily, but it stopped by the next releases. Additionally, the original opening credits from the first season were replaced with the second season ones because of legal pressures exerted by Johnny & Associates, the management behind TOKIO, the band who recorded the [[AnimeThemeSong opening]] "7 O'Clock News". Even the cameo of one of the members of the band was [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerized]] in both English and Japanese tracks to keep any mention of the group out of the North American release. Due to licensing contracts and low sales of the series, the second season was never released and as of February 2012, Funimation [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes lost the license]] of the series.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Tsuyoshi is a kind kid, and has a good (and often innocent) personality... However, he can be blinded with rage if someone activates his BerserkButton.

** Naozumi, a young {{bishonen}} who looks like a [[ButNotTooForeign foreigner]] and who is also kind, is really popular with the girls.
** Akito can count as such(he even chased away a fangirl!) if his cold personality wasn't such a turn-off (even in elementary school, the girls found him disgusting as a bagworm due to the mess he pulled there). [[spoiler: In ''Deep Clear'', his adult self is seen as such because the nurses who work in the clinic with him, think that he has a mysterious air and a ''cool'' personality]].



* CoolBigSis:
** Natsumi starts acting more as a caring older sister to Akito, after Sana helped them to overcome their family's issues. To a point where even Natsumi wants him to call her "sister".
** Sana starts looking at Asako as such when they start filming "The Mansion of Water". Asako helps her realize that she is really hurt about Akito [[spoiler:dating Fuuka, because Sana ''loves'' him]].



* DeathByChildbirth: Koharu Hayama died right after she gave birth to Akito. Played for the melodrama, this badly traumatized Natsumi, who ends up abusing her brother and blames him for that fact for years.

Shuri eventually reconciled them together, and this fear is later subverted, when Sana is safe and healthy after she gives to birth.]]



* DrivesLikeCrazy:
** Anime-only, Rei drives so slow even for a pedestrian's standard, until Sana commands him to go faster and/or until she unnerves him to do so.
** Misako drives a toycar inside their house, even without thinking in running over someone who crosses her path.
* FirstKiss: This is the one that is very important for Sana and Akito's relationship, when they are in the middle of a school trip at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office. Although [[spoiler:it wasn't a first for Akito]], the kiss is both surprising and terrifying for poor Sana.
** And it brought [[HilarityEnsues hilarious results]] in the anime, as her reaction causes a good deal of traffic accidents, when they were at the top of one of the building’s towers.

Although Brad is too similar to Akito in appearance, he is more talkative, direct and meaner than him [[spoiler:(even if he acts like this just to protect Cecil Hamilton, since he likes her)]].
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: Fuuka Matsui is a subversion of the trope. While she is obnoxiously hyper (though not any less than Sana, whose personality and accent say "generic Tokyo area native character"), she's quite clever, reliable, and more astute than Sana. When she first appears, the rest of the characters briefly discuss the Osaka stereotypes (her KansaiRegionalAccent and the BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine) with her.

* MarketBasedTitle:
** In Italy, the series was renamed ''Rossana''.
** Back in 2003, when the manga series was licensed in Mexico, it was renamed as ''El Diario de Sana'' instead of "''El Juguete de los Niños''" (literal translation from "Kodomo no Omocha", and also the title it received in Spain), perhaps to avoid confusion with a similar named 80s telenovela called "''El Mundo de Juguete''".

** However, Sana does recognize that her "love" for Rei, when she accepts that he must go on with his love life (as he has a longtime girlfriend), was probably a PrecociousCrush.

* MerchandiseDriven: The anime series counted with Tomy (present-day known as Takara Tomy) as part of the production committee. Every single toy that Sana had (the Burucha and the Nopia, for example) was real. It should be noted that this line of toys didn't exist in the original manga itself. However, finding them in auction sites is way too difficult, nowadays. The most valuable of them is probably the Polaroid Camera that was available as a series-related edition.
