* PetTheDog: Yuu's friendship with Tomoko is one of the few good things that Tomoko has to look forward too, seeing as Yuu is literally one of two people who are willing to not only tolerate Tomoko, but actually like her, [[spoiler: though Kii does lose her worship of Tomoko]]. Yuu represents the only positive thing about Tomoko's life, a person who genuinely likes and relates with her, something that even Tomoko's own ''family'' have immense difficulty doing. When your friend likes you more than your own family does really says something about the kind of life Tomoko has.

* WritingAroundTrademarks: The Disneyland arc, natch. The park is filled with rides, attractions, merchandise, and characters very reminiscent to what you'll find under the Disney banner with a enough tweaks to make them more lawyer-friendly. The traditional mouse ear hats are smaller and look more like bear ears, Hina dons a hat that strongly resembles Sully from ''Disney/MonstersInc'', the girls go on rides that are Ride/SpaceMountain and Splash Mountain in all but name, and attend a show akin to "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stitch_Encounter Stitch Encounter]]" that stars a koala-like creature who's a blatant CaptainErsatz of [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]].

** For Ucchi, the last night of the Kyoto field trip was a life-changing experience that left her with great paranoia over Tomoko that only grew more intensely over time, prompting feelings of fear, obsession, jealousy, and even a bit of attraction in her. But for Tomoko, it was just another series of embarrassing moments in her miserable life.

** The series title itself. The manga used to be about Tomoko's attempts to make herself popular, or at least make friends, and how she was her own worst enemy in that regard. Over the course of her second year in high school, she moved away from the mindset in favor of just having a normal high school life, and has since made a circle of friends and acquaintances to regularly socialize with. Tomoko's still has no boyfriend and is by no means the DudeMagnet she set out to be at the beginning, but she's not really all that concerned with either anymore, making the title of the manga even more outdated.

** Chapter titles still go by the [[IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming idiosyncratic format]] of "''Since I'm Not Popular, I'll [Subject]''." This was originally done to illustrate Tomoko's latest harebrained scheme to improve her popularity. The titles aren't true anymore because Tomoko no longer does anything in relation to her lack of popularity.
** Chapters are typically referred to as "Mournings" or "Fails" depending on the translation, often because they involved things going hilariously bad for Tomoko in one way or another. After the school trip, Tomoko in general stopped suffering so much humiliating defeat, and actually starting seeing some success in her endeavors. Usually, when things go bad, they do so for ''other'' people.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: During the last day of the school field trip, Kotomi shows up wearing a flashy getup with an [[TooManyBelts abundance of belts]] and [[{{Zipperiffic}} zippers]] that wouldn't look out of place on a ''Final Fantasy'' character. Absolutely nobody comments on it.
