* FanficFuel: Chapter 84 narrates a dream of Usaida's in which all children and teens have their ages swapped; Ryuuichi, Hayato, Nezu, Inomata, Yuki and Yagi are toddlers and Saikawa is the baby, while Takuma, Kazuma, Taka, Koutaro and Kirin are in middle school while Midori is a teacher. Combined with the endcards of the anime revealing their age swapped appearances, works about it aren't uncommon.
* FridgeHorror: In Chapter 7/Episode 4B when Ryuuichi has a [[DreamSequence nightmare about the last time he sees his parents before they go on the plane they die on]]. Except that to make things more terrifying, the parents take Kotaro with them. Knowing they die Ryuuichi gets more worked up as Kotaro is his last living family member and all Ryuichi can do is watch and pound at an invisible wall stopping him from saving his toddler sibling. By the time the door closes and we are back to visuals of Ryuuichi in bed, we get a harder reestablishment that [[HatesBeingAlone Ryuuichi's greatest fear is losing his little brother and being left alone.]]

** When Ryuuichi disguises himself as a girl, Kamitani quickly puts himself in the role of his boyfriend to get Inui away.
** Following that, when Inui is close to find out that the girl he likes is Ryuuichi, Kamitani threatens to send Inui flying if he hits Ryuuichi when he finds out.
** Yuki is actually jealous of Kamitani for being able to roll up Ryuuichi's sleeves.
** The first time we see Ryuuichi genuinely angry, it's not because of anything related to Kotarou. Rather, it's when he sees how [[spoiler: Hebihara-sensei, Kamitani's father]] treated Kamitani.

* MisaimedFandom: Yagi's hatedom largely comes from the fact that they believe him to be a pedophile and the story passing it off as a joke, however, the joke in the manga is the fact that he is always being mistaken by one or accused of being one, rather than actually being one. This is another reason why his scrappiness comes mostly from anime fans, as the manga has delved in his backstory and the reason why he's so fond of children ([[spoiler:Nezu and his baby brothers were the ones to keep him company when his parents couldn't be on his birthday when he was really young]]) and several characters have stated that he isn't one, just a weirdo, but deep down a NiceGuy.
* MostWonderfulSound: A lot of what the babies say becomes this, since the voice acting makes them look absolutely adorable.
** Kotarou saying "Nii-cha" often is this. Similerly, him saying "A~gatou" (because he can't pronounce "arigatou") in episode 5.

* MisaimedFandom: Yagi's The hatedom largely comes from the fact that they believe him to be a pedophile and the story passing it off as a joke, however, the joke in behind Yagi (or how the manga is depicts him) can be divided into two factions: those who know the fact that he is always being mistaken by one or accused of being one, rather than actually being one. This is another reason why his scrappiness comes mostly author tries to portray him as a NiceGuy with a genuine CutenessProximity for kids (stemming from anime fans, as the manga has delved in his backstory and the reason why he's so fond of children ([[spoiler:Nezu when Nezu and his baby brothers were the ones to keep kept him company when his parents couldn't be on his birthday when he was really young]]) and several a long time ago) but still can't stand the unnecessary pedophile jokes that come with it (whether it be the nosebleeds or the characters have stated calling him a pervert), and those who see him as a full-blown creep. The outrage is warranted but only the first lot acknowledge that he isn't one, just a weirdo, but deep down a NiceGuy.
it's the author's fault for thinking pairing nosebleed gags with children are tasteful to begin with, and that Yagi himself would be decent without them.
* MostWonderfulSound: A lot of what the babies say becomes this, is nice on the ears, since the voice acting makes them look absolutely adorable.

adorable. For example is the way Kotarou saying "Nii-cha" often is this. Similerly, him saying says "Nii-cha", and how he says "A~gatou" (because he can't pronounce "arigatou") in episode 5.



* ToyShip: As about half of the series focuses on the interactions between the toddlers, this is probably inevitable. Most common ships are Kotaro/Kirin, Kotaro/Taka, or Taka/Kirin.
* TheScrappy: A large number of people find Yagi's behaviour towards the children off-putting. This opinion is greatest within the anime-only community but there are a few who read the manga and still find the character genuinely creepy.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Midori doesn’t have as much attention compared to the other daycare children. Imagine where you would go with her. [[JustifiedTrope To be fair she is still just a baby]].

Nevertheless, her being the youngest of the group would make for other interesting unexplored storylines, for example her relationship with the older kids, her taking her first steps into toddlerhood, and even her family (who themselves are not as developed as the others).

** Hayato constantly hits his baby brother Taka when he acts up. This is meant to be PlayedForLaughs, but Western viewers may not find the act to be at all humorous, even when [[UnfortunateImplications (or especially when)]] it's depicted as harmless. This could be attributed to the more lenient attitudes toward family discipline in Japan, where striking one's child is generally frowned upon, but not considered grounds to call Child Services except in extreme cases. This is made considerably worse when Taka smacks his younger cousin Tsumugi for breaking his prized toy sword, when Taka only wanted to be a good older brother in his own right. This is further muddied by Hayato also hitting [[WouldHitAGirl Kirin]] at one point - hitting his kid brother is bad enough, but a little girl not even related to him is a big no-no.

** Of all the babies, Taka is the most iffy. His acting up, constant loudness, and refusal to listen to Kamitami makes him the least liked of the babies, especially since most of them are more well behaved by comparison.

However, some aren't too bothered by his behavior since having a more realistically bratty kid in the cast keeps the story from getting [[TastesLikeDiabetes too saccharine]].
