Added DiffLines:

* SandInMyEyes: [[ExploitedTrope Exploited]] in chapter 24. Tomoko uses her pollen allergies to make it look like she's crying so she can bask in the atmosphere of the graduation ceremony without looking out of place.

Added DiffLines:

* PornStash: Tomoko is convinced her brother has a collection of dirty magazines hidden somewhere in his room, but her efforts to dig up any such dirt on him haven't been successful so far, with the implication being that he really doesn't have one. However, Tomoko has a ''lot'' of filthy things saved up on her phone, which is enough to send her into conniptions when she accidentally leaves it at school.

Added DiffLines:

* ContrivedCoincidence: Taken to comically absurd levels in Chapter 93. Yuu just so happens to cut her hair the same way Ucchi does, Tomoko just so happens to use her as a model for some panties that match a pair [[ItMakesSenseInContext she inadvertently stole from Ucchi]] during the class trip, and Ucchi just so happens to pass by to witness the proceedings. Needless to say, it only reinforces the emoji-faced girl’s paranoia that Tomoko has an obsession with her.

* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Yoshida is seen playing a crane game for a plush kitty, much to Tomoko's surprise.



* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Yoshida.



* StaticCharacter: While Tomoko has some minor CharacterDevelopment, by most appearances she ends the series largely unchanged. This is often pointed to as either a point of criticism or praise, with critics being put off by the lack of any clear development, and proponents tending to read this as an acknowledgement that, in real life, dealing with problems like extreme social anxiety or maladjustment is usually an incremental, uneven process that rarely has a clean resolution.

The fact that the anime only adapts material from the first four volumes of the manga, before Tomoko begins to develop on any level, also has something to do with it.

Added DiffLines:

* AnachronicOrder: While events in the manga otherwise unfold in chronological order, Christmas specials are the exception and are usually inserted into the past or future of the story's current timeline. The first four take place during Tomoko's first year in high school, while the rest apply to her second year. Justified because the passage of a year in the manga does not correlate to the passage of a year in the real world.

* HeroicBSOD: PlayedForLaughs in chapter 13, where Tomoko has one when she finds out that a caterpillar fell on her head [[spoiler: and it gets worse when Yuu accidentally crushes it while it's still on Tomoko's head.]]

* HeroicBSOD: HeroicBSOD:
**
PlayedForLaughs in chapter 12 when Tomoko falls into a nearly-comatose funk after getting in trouble with her parents. What kind of trouble exactly? [[spoiler:Getting caught buying a Yandere CD with their credit card.]]
** Done again
in chapter 13, where Tomoko has one when she finds out that a caterpillar fell on her head [[spoiler: and it gets worse when Yuu accidentally crushes it while it's still on Tomoko's head.]]


Added DiffLines:

* KidsAreCruel: Implied. When Yuu asks Tomoko if the latter has any nicknames, the only things Tomoko can think of are various insults, indicating that she was likely bullied in her younger years.

* ArousedByTheirVoice: Tomoko shows clear signs of arousal in listening to audio [=CDs=] of {{Yandere}} boys issuing abuse. She's later seen listening to a custom performance a professional voice actor made for her to similar effect, which gives her the idea to splice it together with her own voice and record her own homebrew audio erotica.



* PottyFailure:
** Tomoko suffers a mild case of this in Chapter 13. After staying up late reading horror stories, she becomes too frightened to go to the bathroom alone and tries holding it in. Eventually, she resorts to waking her brother up so he can accompany her there, but admits she already peed herself a little and has to take a shower and change her clothes.
** Kii-chan's prank to scare Tomoko proves so effective it implicitly causes the older girl to [[BringMyBrownPants wet herself on the spot]].



* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Tomoko is a little cuter in the anime due to its less sketchy art. Also some of her more grotesque faces are toned down somewhat.

** While Yuu is plenty attractive in the manga, the anime gives her a much more mature and buxom figure, as well as more fanservice-laden shots.

* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: In Tomoko's case it was [[spoiler:being caught by her mother while redubbing a sex scene from an otome game with herself as the protagonist]], but it seemed to be equally embarrassing.

Added DiffLines:

** In Chapter 73, Ucchi catches Tomoko in the bathroom with literally no pants on. While Tomoko was trimming her pubic hair, Ucchi was of the opinion that she was doing something a ''lot'' more inappropriate in there. She brings up the incident in Chapter 80 after Tomoko [[BlatantLies claims she just recently lost her virginity]], causing the latter to immediately clam up with embarrassment.

* IWishedYouWereDead: Tomoki said this to Tomoko in a moment of anger. She exploits it to blackmail

Added DiffLines:

* MySisterIsOffLimits: Gender-flipped. Tomoko ''really'' doesn't like the idea of girls dating her brother, which just adds another reason to why she's so hostile to Kotomi (and later Akari). Whether it's because she's uncomfortable with the idea of others perving over him, doesn't want to see another sign that he's more socially-capable than she is, [[BrotherSisterIncest wants him all for herself]], or some combination thereof is up to interpretation.
