The people involved explained in the Danbooru comments that Yoshika had volunteered to model for an art livestream they were doing.

* NoSenseOfDirection: Yamame. She takes great pleasure in rubbing it in every time Kogasa gets lost.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: During the Anime Boston arc, Kogasa walks into one of his handlers' hotel rooms and sees Seiga tying Yoshika up ''shibari''-style; awkwardness ensues until Kogasa just plays it off as nothing. The people involved explained in the Danbooru comments that they were doing an art livestream and Yoshika volunteered to be the model; in the commentary Mizuki said that he figured it was on the level since Yoshika was still fully clothed.

* OtakuSurrogate: Sanae is a ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' fan, sometimes to Kogasa's horror (usually when she tries to force him to watch it); she's also into ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'', being part of a ''[=KanColle=]'' dojin circle along with Nazrin. (Kogasa himself is more into {{moe}}.)

* OtakuSurrogate: Naturally, since the comic is about doujin artists. The comic itself reveals most of Kogasa's interests (besides ''Touhou'', he likes ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan''), Sanae is a ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' fan, sometimes loves ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}''[[note]]sometimes to Kogasa's horror (usually horror, usually when she tries to force him to watch it); she's also into ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'', being it[[/note]] and ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' and is part of a ''[=KanColle=]'' dojin ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' doujin circle along with Nazrin.

* SequentialArtist: A certain amount of the strips are basically about the pain of being a doujinshi artist; there are poorly conducted cons that make substantial losses (q.v. the [=PMMM=] convention mentioned under ShoutOut below)[[labelnote:elaboration]]The PMMM franchise's unprecedented popularity forced the convention to extend from a one-day, single-room convention to being held in two convention rooms several blocks apart, and the con was divided into three sessions such that every participant was only allowed to have 90 minutes of time.[[/labelnote]], and there've been cases where he had to attend cons that he didn't want any part of[[labelnote:elaboration]]For example, he entered a con for the urophiliac {{fetish}} only so he could attend two other cons nearby that were already full.[[/labelnote]].
* ShoutOut: An entire arc was more or less recreating ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Fitting, since the arc was about a [=PMMM=] con.

** There have been a few nods to ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan''; Kogasa's claims that he needs to replenish his "Karaokenium" by singing is based off a similar gag where Mahiro's mother says that she needs "Sononium" generated by [[CuddleBug cuddling her son]]. Additionally, in one of the karaoke marathon arcs Nyarko herself was used as the avatar for the store's manager.
* ShowWithinAShow: Sort of. In one story arc, the characters watch episodes of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''.

** Also happened extensively with the Anime Boston arc, since most of the people behind Mizuki's trip are Danboorians and would elaborate on the events of the trip.

* SimilarlyNamedWorks: ''Hang in There, Kogasa-chan!'', an entirely unrelated dojin that actually predates this one (Hitoshi has said that he didn't know that series existed when he made this one). Its author [=Yuzuna99=] has shown up a few times and is always depicted as an even cuter version of Kogasa than Hitoshi's avatar.

* CreatorCameo: ZUN himself appears in a couple of story arcs; he's actually depicted as himself rather than having a stand-in character like everyone else in the series. In his first appearance, Kogasa thanks him for everything he's done.

** In the fifth karaoke marathon arc, the manager of the facility is represented as the male version of Ritsuka Fujimaru from ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder''. Fans initially believed this was just a nod to the game's massive popularity, but a few strips later when Kogasa goes to speak with the manager, he instead finds the ''female'' version of Ritsuka, with the RealLife explanation that the managers had transferred to different stores in the meantime.

''Hang in There, Kogasa-San'' is a VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Fan WebComic story about Kogasa Tatara and Sanae Kochiya being happily married and living together. Both are famous manga artists, and the story describes their daily lives between traveling, conventions, and general tasks for work.
