* MemeticBystander: Futaki (FanNickname'd "Potential-san" based on [[https://i.imgur.com/oJ4tvV7.png this omake]]), the recurring student with a completely blank dot-eyed expression and later an equally-fixed triangle-mouth. She's immediately memorable just for [[NonStandardCharacterDesign looking really, really weird]], and fans have been coming up with theories as to who she might be despite having only a few background appearances and one short line in Chapter 122.

Added DiffLines:

** As the cast expanded to include more and more of Tomoko's schoolmates, the fandom got divided even further. Though many welcomed the additions, there's a small but very vocal minority that disliked all the focus given to the new characters, as they felt that Tomoko was getting [[OutOfFocus alienated from her own series]].

* MemeticBystander: Since Chapter 88, there's an as-of-yet unnamed recurring student (FanNickname'd "Potential-san" based on [[https://i.imgur.com/oJ4tvV7.png this omake]]) with a completely blank dot-eyed expression and later an equally-fixed triangle-mouth.

** Asuka Katou, Tomoko's makeup loving classmate, is also incredibly popular for a largely peripheral character. Likely due to a combination of her design, [[TeamMom the way she dotes on others]], and the fact she seems to be genuinely nice and well-meaning.

** Does Yoshida tolerate Tomoko's shenanigans out of a sense of honor or obligation, because Ogino asked her (and Yuri) to become Tomoko's friends? Or does she actually ''like'' Tomoko, despite the latter's weirdness?

* GrowingTheBeard: The early volumes were well-done but having Tomoko be an absolute social wreck with scarcely anyone to turn to could feel repetitive after a while. The manga picked up when it built up Komiyama as her NotSoDifferent SitcomArchNemesis and eventually "frenemy", and further when her second-year field trip led to a small explosion of other recurring characters Tomoko could bounce off of. The anime just adapts the early part, though.

** As the series goes on, it becomes apparent that Tomoko's [[CharacterDevelopment not as much as a social wreck]] as she was when she first started high school. You'd be surprised at the amount of people who say that this is a ''bad'' thing for her, since it takes away from the fun of the story. On the other hand, others say that she becomes a bit of a WeirdnessMagnet, since as she becomes more normal, everyone ''else's'' quirks become more prominent.

And she still isn't even remotely well-adjusted, just less of an absolute loner.

* AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAIAXFQ0T74 The opening]] has gotten very positive reactions. This could be because the music is more for a battle manga than a slice of life story.

** Due to the series leaning heavily into CringeComedy territory concerning Tomoko's Social Anxiety, there sprung a debate over whether the humor of the series was too mean-spirited [[DudeNotFunny given the subject matter]]. Others find it fair game since majority of the bad things that happens to Tomoko end up being [[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist self-inflicted]].

** Tomoko's three companions from the Kyoto Trip arc -- [[NotSoDifferent Yuri]], [[JapaneseDelinquents Yoshida]], and [[StalkerWithACrush Ucchi]] -- have all gained considerable followings since their introductions, partly due their individual quirks, and partly due to how their differing personalities clash with Tomoko's.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Tomoko's petty annoyances on Tomoki, such as hogging the shower while he's getting sick and playing a prank on him purely on a whim, becomes less funny considering that this behavior is what made him start hating her in the first place.

* HoYay: [[HoYay/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular Lovingly crafted here]]. It's a lot of LesYay.



* HoYay: [[HoYay/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular Lovingly crafted here]]. It's a lot of LesYay.
* JerkassWoobie: Tomoko responds to her social isolation by becoming really embittered and mean spirited. It's a regrettably accurate depiction of the way a lot of people ''do'' react to social isolation, especially adolescents who are usually a bit self centered and immature to begin with. Viewers can recognize this as a counterproductive personal flaw, but it's also a very relatable one. Of course, Tomoko's jerkass tendencies are somewhat softened by the fact that she's either too introverted and inept to do any real harm, and nobody is sufficiently invested in their relationship with her for her to have much of an impact one way or the other.

** For example: In the first episode where she threatens Tomoki that she would kill herself if he didn't talk to her. With the aforementioned expressions and dark atmosphere, it makes it seem like she would seriously kill herself.
** The Anime's Opening provides a good example during the sequence where Tomoko is posing like prison inmate. After a couple frames, Tomoko flashes a SlasherSmile. A half-second later, she [[CameraAbuse lunges forwards and claws the camera]] with a crazed expression on her face. The semi-stop motion way the sequence is animated, plus Tomoko's string black hair give bring Film/TheRing to mind. Tomoko's actual character is [[ShrinkingViolet hardly intimidating]], but still...
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Social anxiety is not "cute," nor does it make victims appear charming. It is a miserable experience because humans ''need'' to be social in some way or another, and the psychological damage of the inability to do so is very, very serious.

* StoicWoobie: Yuri. While she puts up a convincing front of indifference throughout, she too is prone to feelings of loneliness and has trouble coping whenever she get separated from the few friends she has.

** Kotomi has problems expressing her feelings for Tomoki, and each time she's turned to his sister for help, Tomoko would always humiliate her publicly purely out of spite. Later chapters show she's just as hopeless without Tomoko's meddling, as all Kotomi's efforts to connect with him end up just making her look like a pervy stalker that honestly creeps Tomoki out.
