* {{Lolicon}}:
** At one point it's quite unbelievably claimed that Iroha is 15. On top of this Hanzo spends clan rebuilding money on a distinctly dodgy-looking {{DatingSim}}...
** Momoko is the same age and a similar build to Iroha. Then there's when Momoko asks point blank whether Koushi prefers women with well-developed figures. He immediately clams up and looks away, suggesting one of Momoko's (and Iroha's) major stumbling blocks is that Koushi ''isn't'' a lolicon.

* AccidentalPervert: After watching a commercial Shintaroe spent all day drinking coffee thinking it would cause her to manlier. Naturally this made her incredibly hyperactive preventing Sanea from studying. When she called her out Shintarou force fed her coffee preventing her from sleeping. The next day Senea yelled at Shintaroe about never letting her into her bed or bath again Shintaroe replied that she was sorry she forced herself on Sanea and that she just wanted to be more of a man. Needless to say her classmates saw her as more of a man than ever.

* AffectionateParody: It's very hard to see how over-the-top the series is without thinking that it has to be an AffectionateParody to some extent of both martial arts and HaremAnime.: Although this is lost a bit in the anime, which introduces Tenka a bit later and then plays up the seriousness of the zodiac family feud.
* AgainstTheSettingSun: Parodied - Momoko and an adversary have a moment of newfound acceptance and friendship after a fight as the sun sets... and promptly forget to save Koshi from man-eating sea snakes in the background.
* {{Ahoge}}: Momoko has a self-made ahoge. Perhaps she subconsciously realized her personality required one. She briefly tries changing her hairstyle to attract Koshi's attention — by adding more ahoge!

** Iroha has cut her hair short and is well on her way to reviving the Miyamoto clan, supported by Hanzou and a group of brand new followers.
** Tenga and Tenten are unable to use techniques after having their ki sealed by Koushi. They withdraw from the clan with Tenrei in tow and go on a journey of training (much to Tenten's chagrin)
** Tenchi has become the de facto leader of the Koganei clan due to being the strongest child of the main house.
** Tenka is undergoing fierce training to reclaim his birthright as the Koganei heir in order to ease the burden on his younger brother.
** Sanae and Hikaru are assisting Tenka with his training. Sanae admits that she might not mind guys with HeroicBuild after all, hinting at an attraction to Tenka.
** Shintarou comes to grips with her gender and attempts to reveal the truth to Tenka and Hanzou. It takes a LOT of convincing to get them to believe it.
** Makihisa has given up pressuring Yuusuke to engage in politics. Yuusuke, free of politics and martial arts, uses his newfound freedom to puruse art studies.
