* HoYay:
** Takai is sometimes the TeamDad for Rec and the Ichinomiya company, but other times he looks like he has a serious crush on Rec. He has a ''[[{{Squick}} body pillow]]'' of him, and there are other times he acts too ''clingy''.
** Hoshi and Rec get way too invested into [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Billy's manliness]]. Heck, they aren't the only ones -- one of Billy's lackeys has a crush on him (similar to a bird's imprinting), and in his introduction, he even got jealous of Jacqueline.
** Everytime that Rec, Hoshi and Last Samurai get into their Kameari-tis "influence", with their fangirl obsession over Kameari.
** [[spoiler: Kameari seems to have connected with the Venusian ghost (a.k.a. Nino's twin) in a deep, ''deeper'' level due to their love towards nudity.]]

** The live-action Village Chief and Hoshi who appear in episode previews. Take account they are prop masks that look as realistic versions of the characters' masks, but they don't move as their animated or drawn counterparts... making them even more creepier.
** The drama and its movie sequel don't follow the live-action aesthethic used by Creator/StudioShaft in the anime for Hoshi or the Village Chief, and the staff decided to go for make-up for the characters... but it's not a pleasant experience seeing the heavy yellow and green make-up on Takayuki Yamada and Shun Oguri's faces, respectively.

* UncannyValley: The live-action Mayor and Hoshi who appear in episode previews. The faces are pretty realistic, which makes the fact that they don't move even creepier.
** At least the drama and follow up movie adaptations weren't exactly so 'HARD' on the costumes. Though, well, Shun Oguri (who was the Mayor)'s and Takayuki Yamada (Hoshi)'s make-up weren't that... nice to see.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Amazoness' status is pretty unclear, given that she is very tall and the make-up she uses is... suspicious... but then again, without it, she's just a normal girl/woman.
