* AllStarCast: In the anime, the main characters are all voiced by very famous and prolific VA's. Tooru is voiced by Jun Fukuyama, Yuujirou by Romi Park, and Mikoto by Tetsuya Kakihara.



* DudeLooksLikeALady: Even when they're not in Princess garb, the Princesses still get mistaken for female.

female. It also serves as a BerserkButton for Yuujirou (who takes his Princess role more in stride than the others) if it prevents him from making a pass at girls that catch his eye:

Added DiffLines:

* DudeMagnet: Akira may not be considered particularly good-looking or charming ([[GenericCuteness by the series' standards anyway]]), but his soothing personality draws people to him, and Tooru, Yuujirou, Arisada and later Mitaka are all but crazy over him.

Added DiffLines:

* HomoeroticSubtext: Between Tooru and Yuujirou. It's also insinuated that Akira is Tooru's "type". Also, in the live-action drama, Mikoto and Otoya are hinted to have feelings for one another after being LockedInARoom. Helped along greatly by the fact that the mangaka moonlights as a yaoi dojin artist.
** The sequel, Plus, basically runs on Ho Yay. Seriously, the whole thing is about the relationship between the two new princesses.
** Let's not forget the "kiss". To convince Tooru's cousin that he's not into girls, he kisses Tooru right in front of her and threatens to do it again if she still doesn't believe him. He even suggested that they do something else when she comes back.
** Basically, the entire concept is Yaoi fuel. An all boys school has a program available for three selected individuals to dress up as girls and cater to the students' desires. Even before Tooru became a Princess, students were blushing and smiling at him. Talk about an awkward first day.
** And the anime ending. Oh god, the anime ending. Basically a slide show of Tooru and Yuujirou doing... Funny stuff.
** Seriously? No mention of Mitaka more or less ''proposing'' to Akira after the elections?
--->'''Mitaka:''' I have something to say to you as well...
--->'''Akira:''' Oh? What's that?
--->'''Mitaka:''' I want to be with you, now and forever.
---->''(then later, after being told off by Tooru and Yuujirou)''
--->'''Mitaka:''' I'm sorry, Sakamoto, I phrased that poorly.
--->'''Akira:''' Oh? You did? Okay...
--->'''Mitaka:''' I meant to say, will you ''have''' me with you now and forever?
--->'''Yuujirou and Tooru:''' THAT'S THE SAME THING!!

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyBi: Yuujirou is very flamboyant and has frequently toyed with the idea of being in a relationship with Tooru (even if it's mostly to drive away the latter's StalkerWithACrush). However, he has also mentioned that he likes girls with big boobs, and the first time we see him get truly angry is when a couple of guys got in his way when he was trying to chat up a pretty girl he saw.

** In the manga, where Tooru's hair color seems much less blue in color images (it's closer to a very dark green, actually, and is probably meant to be black), these three fit the trope more appropriately.

** Notably, there's a moment when Yuujiro, the most HoYay-prone of the threesome, lashes out at some guys who hit on him and made him lose sight of a girl he was about to make a pass on. As he puts it (not the exact words, AFAIK, but reworded from one of the foreign translations):

* MumLooksLikeASister: Akira Sakamoto's mom, who Tooru and Yuujirou are convinced is either his younger or older sister. Later, when he told them she's his mother, he was asked if he meant step-mother. He not only confirmed she's his mother by birth but also that she had never undergone any kind of surgery to look as young as she does. Also, Yuujirou's mom looks almost identical to her son in Princess mode.

Also, Yuujirou's mom looks almost identical to her son in Princess mode.he was Akira's brother, the "rumoured Sakamoto-sama".



* OlderThanTheyLook: When Tooru and Yuujirou first met Sakamoto Akira's mother, they thought she was his sister and couldn't even figure out if she was older or younger than him. When he told them she's his mother, he even had to clarify she's not a ''step''mother.

* [[WhenSheSmiles When (S)He Smiles]]: An important part of the job of the princesses is to cheer everyone up with their smiles. It's a very hard thing for Mikoto to do, as he hates the princess job, which make his few smiles so much more adorable and noticeable.

** In the anime. In the manga, it's not as explicit. Well, aside from the covers.
*** Well, if Tooru's hair was meant to be blue from the start, it could've been given a dark shade of gray instead of inked jet black in the manga.
** It's implied that their colors are intended as exaggerations of more realistic colors, as Natashou states that Tooru, Yuujirou, and Mikoto will have black, brown, and red wigs respectively (which are actually the same colors as their normal hair). Akira's green hair, oddly enough, is not commented upon.
** It should also be noted that in the anime all of the student council members have subdued, yet unusual tones when compared with the rest of the student boy. This would further suggest that hair color is used as a visual aid to indicate an important character.



** Well, this was sort of the entire reason the princess program was created in the first place.
