* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Nodoka's father thinks "Mahjong Pro" isn't the most secure career aspiration for his daughter, but lets her keep at it as long as she keeps winning. On the other hand, he derides mahjong as a game purely based on luck, scoffs at Nodoka mentioning that she was able to make friends through it ("just what use would any friends you make be in a hick town like this be?"), and halfheartedly decides to "consider" letting her stay if she wins the nationals. He might be giving her a chance, but it could be [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpreted]] that he does so because he doesn't think she can manage the improbable task of winning the nationals.

** Shots of Nodoka's [[SexySoakedShirt wet uniform scene]] from Season 1 Episode 1 bore wild theories that Nodoka, and maybe the other girls, did not wear any underwear.

** Shots of Nodoka's [[SexySoakedShirt wet uniform scene]] from Season 1 Episode 1 bore wild theories that Nodoka, and maybe the other girls, did not wear any underwear. This was confirmed for Nodoka in Episode 3, which gave an upskirt view as she was putting her shoes on that showed a completely uncovered butt.

** The episode previews all have references to mahjong manga of varying obscurity, most of which are lost on English-speaking audiences. In particular, the last preview references five series, the last of which is Hideki Oowada's ''Ritz''.

** Mihoko helps Yuuki from losing too many points against Jun in the Nagano finals' vanguard match, making Yuuki think she's looking out for her. She then surprises everyone by repeatedly scoring big and running away with the lead.
** Kana, whose points were reduced to 0 by Koromo, gets a 16,900 point grace from Saki during the Nagano finals' captains match. It turns out Saki purposely did this so Kana doesn't go in the negative should anyone get a winning hand to give her enough time to pull off a comeback win
