** The episode where Mitsuki reveals she's leaving the team -- only to add that it's for a martial arts camp and that she'll be back -- stings a little bit with the knowledge that Kyoko Hinami will not be returning for season 2. The damage is thankfully lessened that she is back for the 1st episode of Season 2, which was explaining why she wouldn't be in the team anymore: [[spoiler:Due to massive RetCon, Mitsuki was the one being recruited by the Pentagon instead of Akagi.]] It also explains why she has longer hair in the reshot scenes.

* ReplacementScrappy: Luna could be seen as such compared to Mitsuki being the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]] and being into martial arts which provides good fight scenes. In comparison, Luna is more ditzy and less 'sane' than others, giving a new flavor but in the same time, detracting those who liked Mitsuki. It could also be intentional. The Sentai franchise has [[Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger replaced characters and their actors]] [[Series/TaiyouSentaiSunVulcan mid-season]] [[Series/ChoudenshiBioman in the past]], [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers as did]] [[PowerRangersTurbo Power Rangers]] [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy at least once]][[labelnote:*]]Albeit the character in that last one was a case of RealLifeWritersThePlot as Valerie Vernon contacted leukaemia and Kendrix had to be written out; Vernon recovered and Kendrix was resurrected[[/labelnote]].

* EarWorm: Before the commercials, there's a four note tune followed by someone singing "Akibaranger" in the season 1 {{Eyecatch}}. This is strangely catchy.

* HilariousInHindsight: The Akibarangers may be wishing they'd picked a bar that's [[http://www.jefusion.com/2012/04/ohred-opens-his-very-own-tokusatsu-bar.html actually owned by a former Red Ranger]] ([[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger Oh Red to be precise]]).

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Luna mostly won over her detractors at episode 11, where she finally [[BecomingTheMask realized that she likes being Akibaranger genuinely instead of treating it like "just a tool to further her idol career"]], culminating into a heartfelt declaration and taking a gigantic beating by Delu-Knight, and [[{{Determinator}} never stays down until Nobuo comes in]]. Sure, not enough to eventually defeat Delu-Knight ([[spoiler:since those are Victory Flags, and in the episode, Victory Flags would lead to defeat.]]) but it sure changes the opinion of many who are annoyed with her idol career spiel.



** Supposedly her actress switched to a different talent agency that's not allied with Toei, not knowing about Season 2, which resulted in Luna being cast. Luna could also be viewed as a parody of idols who've had Sentai roles which have helped their career (such as [=ShinkenYellow=] or Mele's actresses).

** Turns out Mitsuki's replacement was due to her starring in a movie and scheduling conflicts meant they weren't able to get her to reprise her role. Note the reshoot in Episode 1 of Akibaranger S2 - Mitsuki has long hair in that shot instead of short hair in the original, because Kyoko Hinami had grown out her hair for her movie role.

** TakeThat: More vocal fans who prefer Super Sentai view the Powerful Rangers episode as a proper retaliation to over two decades of {{Macekre}}. While some Power Rangers fans see it as a TakeThat to the more vocal ''Sentai'' fans, since it was an alternate reality where ''Sentai'' actually ripped off ''Power Rangers''.



* TearJerker: The revelation about Yumeria's mother near the end of #5, namely the fact that [[spoiler: she had been dead for five years prior to the series' beginning, and the scene with Yumeria and her mother was Yumeria celebrating her birthday "with my mother in my mind"]]. Considering that this series is mostly a comedy series, it sort of comes out of left field.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Kozkoz's dancing is usually played for laughs, even turned into a FunnyBackgroundEvent sometimes. Then came the Wham Arc, with Marushina invading the cafe... and Kozkoz actually takes up arms and battles her. And loses badly. Yet, some time later, [[ThePollyanna she's back on her feet, dancing for her customers like nothing happened.]] Heh. Bet a lot of you are feeling really bad right about now.
