* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Masato's older sister and her daughter are introduced early in the first tankobon, but she's always referred to by [[JapaneseHonorifics oneesan]] or "Sis." It's not until towards the (premature) end of the series that we catch her name.

unfortunate implications need citations.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: A subtle but [[UnfortunateImplications still unfortunate]] version occurs with Sachiko's two friends from her mommy-baby group. One, Mrs. Tanaka, looks like an anime drawing of Jennifer Aniston, and the other, Mrs. Katakura, looks much more like a Japanese woman actually would look like. Guess which one winds up being more accepting and supportive of Hikaru...
