* AdaptationDecay: Tellingly, Wataru Yoshizumi was approached about an anime adaptation ''before the manga was even published.'' The characters are really the only thing the manga and anime have in common, and the anime goes out of its way to incorporate a lot of popular fantasy shoujo tropes, like giving Nina a MagicalGirl transformation costume and rival. What makes this so disappointing is that one of Yoshizumi's hopes in writing and drawing Ultra Maniac was that her lack of familiarity with the fantasy genre (she hadn't even read Harry Potter) would give it some freshness and originality.
** Funnily enough, at the start of the manga Ayu claims that she will ''never'' read Harry Potter.

* HoYay: When Shinnosuke gets turned into a human, not only is he a total {{Bishonen}}, but he's also just as cuddly and clingy towards Hiroki as he was in cat form, which makes Hiroki feel very awkward and makes everyone else {{sweatdrop}} a lot.
