''Girls Bravo'' is a {{Shonen|Demographic}} {{Manga}} series written and illustrated by Mario Kaneda and serialized from 2000 to 2005 in Shōnen Ace by Kadokawa Shoten. The series was made into an anime in 2004, with a second season made in 2005. There are 24 episodes total. It also inspired a VisualNovel.

Yukinari Sasaki fears girls, having been teased and bullied by them to the point that he breaks out in hives upon mere contact with them. One day, having come home from school, his {{Tsundere}} neighbor Kirie Kojima kicks him into his bathtub, and he is transported to "Seiren," a mysterious world with a mostly female population. [[HilarityEnsues Much hilarity follows.]]

A [[Characters/GirlsBravo characters page]] is now under construction. Feel free to contribute.

[[folder: Anime Exclusive Examples]]
* AdaptationExpansion: The "Miharu clone" story was expanded into the anime, wherein the Miharu clones attempt to ransack the supermarket, only for Fukuyama to foil it.
* AmusingInjuries: In an early episode, after Kirie slams Fukuyama into the ground, his head is turned sideways for the next few scenes.
* AndIMustScream: At the end of one episode, Fukuyama's conscience is trapped in a wooden board. Subverted in that after screaming for his sister Risa to help him, he sees an upside to his predicament as he can now see up the skirts of women that walk over him.
* BarelyThereSwimwear: One of the rules of the "Girls Fight!" competition mandates that all entrants must wear progressively smaller bikinis as they advance in the rankings. Lampshaded when Kirie demands to know why she had to wear [[{{Stripperific}} a thonged string bikini]] for the semi-final bout with Kosame.
* BeAWhoreToGetYourMan: Risa Fukuyama tend to use this approach to get close to Yukinari, at least in the Anime. Her logic is that being so "friendly" will help him overcome his allergy to girls. However her forceful approach always backfire on him (see also her AllWomenAreLustful entry).
* BlackComedyRape:
** The series largely portrays Kosame's attempts to seduce Kirie as comical, made moreso since [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin she never gets away with it]].
** Contrary to any premise, Downplayed with Fukuyama. His attempts against Kirie, which are [[ThanksForTheMammary more focused and less forceful]], usually come up only as teasing pranks (Kirie's face is the indicator: with Fukuyama she is plainly annoyed, while with Kosame is utterly scared). His harassments on Koyomi may seem more serious, but the difference is only that the androphobic Koyomi is too much scared to fight back. In fact [[EvenEvilHasStandards he seems much more reserved with her]] and -often- just hug the struggling girl until she pass away or is saved by a third party. Often, not always.
* BlandNameProduct: Yukinari owns a Creator/{{So|ny}}mmy television, which is seen in episode 9.
* BlushSticker: Occasionally invoked by various members of the female cast.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: In episode 9, Tomoka takes over Kirie's OncePerEpisode catchphrase of "go (x)... in hell!" (in this case, "Go do it... in hell!". In episode 17, Yukinari also borrows it while battling Fukuyama in a video game.
* CatFight: [[GirlOnGirlIsHot The entire purpose of the underground "Girls Fight!" tournament]] in episode 13. The rules are simple: women only, and combatants must wear progressively smaller swimsuits as they advance in the rankings. Fukuyama even made the semi-final bout a MudWrestling match, with Kosame and Kirie in g-string bikinis.
* CelebrityParadox: The game expo episode, featuring Creator/ChiwaSaito, Creator/MamikoNoto, and Creator/AyakoKawasumi, who voice Kirie, Yukinari, and Miharu, respectively. {{Talking to H|imself}}erself ensues in the case of Noto.
* CensorSteam: In copious amounts. Quasi-TropeNamer. Lightly removed in the DVD release.
* CharacterDevelopment: Both Kirie and Fukuyama (to an extent) during the second season.
** Kirie becomes nicer towards Yukinari and stops [[UnprovokedPervertPayback beating him up]]. Instead, she reserves those moments for Fukuyama, who almost always brings it on himself [[ThanksForTheMammary by deliberately provoking her]].
** And while Fukuyama continues to sexually harass Koyomi and Miharu (who fails to notice), he befriends Tomoka and becomes something of an ally to Yukinari and the others. Including trying to snap Yukinari out of his HeroicBSOD with a well-intended [[ToughLove "you suck" speech]], after [[spoiler: Miharu gets kidnapped]].
* ChekhovsGun: Remember Yukinari's being dressed as a girl early on? When he literally [[CrashIntoHello runs into]] [[spoiler: [[BigBad Yukina]]]], near the end of the series, his disguise and choice of name were the same as hers. Which practically made it {{foreshadowing}}.
* ChekhovsSkill: In the opening scene of the 13th episode, Kosame is shown shadowboxing while in the shower; during which, she's seen moving effortlessly, despite the floor being wet. So when Fukuyama makes the semi-final bout of the "Girls Fight!" tournament a mud wrestling match, it didn't impair her movements at all.
* CurbStompBattle:
** In episode 11, Fukuyama cheats by having Risa use her magic to help him beat Kirie in a ping pong battle. When she calls him out on it, he not only admits it, he tells her he never promised to play fair since they were playing to [[spoiler: decide whether Kirie would have to give him a full-bodied bath massage]].
** Then Koyomi returns the favor, when she reveals she was an ace ping-pong player on Seiren. Fukuyama tries to throw her off her game by making lewd remarks about her underwear, which works until Kirie tells Koyomi to imagine the balls as Fukuyama. Which gave Koyomi the impetus to ace each of his serves, and win the match by a landslide.
* CuteBruiser: Played straight, Kirie is probably [[HelloNurse the most attractive girl around]] and is remarkably strong for a girl her age, capable of even lifting Hijiri or Fukuyama, both taller and heavier than she is, over her head and launching or suplexing them. Not present in the Manga, as there she only [[PervertRevengeMode beats up Fukuyama]] [[MegatonPunch without displaying real fighting abilities]].
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Tomoka makes up with Risa in episode 9, after learning more about the latter's backstory as well as being defeated by her in a magic duel.
* [[DepravedHomosexual Depraved Lesbian]]: Kosame, whose lust for Kirie is played both for laughs and fanservice; especially during the "Girls Fight!" competition.
* DistaffCounterpart: [[spoiler: Yukina]], who's "boy allergy" is the inverse of Yukinari's "girl allergy".
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The anime struggles to find the right tone for the first several episodes. Kirie is more psychotic and abusive than she later becomes, and some of Fukuyama's antics really come across as DudeNotFunny. Things improve as the show gradually becomes more absurd and the abuse and harassment start [[CrossesTheLineTwice Crossing the Line Twice]].
* EroticEating: Done by Miharu while eating a banana. Yes, they invented this only for the anime.
* FeatherBoaConstrictor: Koyomi had to wear a python on episode [[note]] She lost a game of mahjong. Persumibly Fukuyama was the one who made her wear the snake.[[/note]]. ''[[UpToEleven And only a python, nothing else!]]'' However she does [[spoiler: befriend it and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments kept it as a pet by the finale]]]].
* FirstKiss: Kosame steals Kirie's, (see the SmoochOfVictory entry near the bottom).
* ForegoneConclusion: The series is utterly devoid of any [[WillTheyOrWontThey romantic tension]] as far as who Yukinari will end up with, to the point where Kirie [[KnowWhenToFoldEm simply gives up]] by the end of the 4th episode. And Maharu follows suit not long after.
* FunbagAirbag: Yukinari on Miharu. Actually this is how [[spoiler: she stops him when he is about to fall unconscious in her bath-pool, he understandably passes out anyway]].
* GagBoobs: Kirie, again (on the other side in the Manga while being comparatively bigger than standard they aren't emphasised so much); also Miharu to a lesser degree. But Miharu's older sister Maharu tends to [[JustForPun overshadow them all]] whenever she shows up.
* {{Gainaxing}}:
** First seen with Miharu while she and Yukinari are running away from the mob of women on her homeworld, Seiren, during the first episode.
** Kirie every time she is excited for something. Mostly averted during fights, strangely.
** The opening scene of the 13th episode shows Kosame shadowboxing while in the shower; during which her breasts bounce with each of her strikes.
* GenderBender: In one episode Risa uses her magic to switch various people's bodies, although the body-switching gets out of hand (she didn't actually intend for gender-bending to occur, see the FreakyFridayFlip entry).
* {{Gendercide}}: Despite the fact that Seiren is already 9/10th female, Yukina wants to kill all the remaining men to turn it into, in her words, a "women's only paradise". Apparently Fukuyama stated multiple times that he would be glad if the same would happen to all the men of earth, beside him.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Which is the very reason Fukuyama hosts his very own private underground [[CatFight "Girls Fight!"]] competition, which [[NinjaMaid Lilica]] has remained the undefeated champion of.
* GirlWatching: Fukuyama is the master of this trope. Should be added that, usually he isn't content to just watch and comment, but often merrily stride toward the unclad (and often annoyed) girls.
* GoOnWithoutMe: One of the most Parodied and absolutely hilarious takes on the trope you'll ever see (noted in the RefugeInAudacity entry).
* GratuitousEnglish: In the Japanese dub during episode 5, when Fukuyama [[StealthHiBye shows up]] in Yukinari's house, he attempts to say "Good afternoon, everyone", but gets punched by a surprised Kirie before he can finish.
* HeroicSacrifice: Implied in episode 8 with Fukuyama, who dons a banana outfit and jumps into a crowd of Miharu clones, who explode on contact (he's doing it only to grope them, [[[[EvenEvilHasStandards as it would be criminal to do the same]] [[InnocentFanserviceGirl to Miharu]]). The grocery store he saves builds a statue in his honor. Of course, StatusQuoIsGod and he's back to being the LovableSexManiac he usually is in the next episode.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Done twice by Kosame towards Kirie (see the NearRapeExperience entry).
* IncompatibleOrientation: Kirie is straight -- not that Kosame and Hijiri care.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Tomoka the youngest cast member, who clams to be the most mature person on the show, and Lisa's henchman Hayate who actually is the most mature strike up a strange friendship.
* IWarnedYou: When Maharu comes to Earth during the school fair, after Lisa predicts Tomoka and Koyomi's future will be crappy.
--> '''Lisa:''' I told them their future was crappy.
* LivingWithTheVillain: It turns out that the kids homeroom teacher Hijiri is actually a spy for the series BigBad Yukina.
* LoveAtFirstPunch: Both Kosame and Hijiri fall in madly love with Kirie after she attacks them, and by mad we mean in a PsychoLesbian BlackComedyRape kind of way.
* MaidCorps: Fukuyama's maids have military training and patrol his estate while armed with automatic weapons. Lilica is his top enforcer and is unflinchingly loyal to him.
* MaleGaze: Expect to see plenty of close-ups and zoom-in shots of Kirie's boobs, Kirie being groped, plenty of upskirt camera angles of girls' thighs, buttocks, and [[PantyShot gratuitous panty shots...]] the list goes on.
* MarshmallowHell: Maharu does this to Yukinari, which she insists he likes even though she punched him out.
* MindControlEyes: Kirie displays these when the ghost girl possesses her in ste onsen story.
* NearRapeExperience: Played for laughs and narrowly averted twice:
** In the 4th episode, Kosame happens across Kirie in the hall of Fukuyama's mansion and coerces her into the bedroom at gun point. Once they're there, she shoves Kirie unto the bed and straddles her after stripping down to her panties. But the wandering spirits Lisa released earlier charges into the room and [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin tramples Kosame before she gets any further]].
** In episode 13, Kirie faces off against Kosame during the semi-finals of the Girls Fight! tournament. Once Kosame pins her, she [[spoiler: mounts her]], while slipping her hands under Kirie's swimsuit so she could fondle her directly. Since the mud in the ring made it difficult for Kirie to gain any traction, she couldn't free herself, but she eventually breaks the hold and the fight continues. [[spoiler: Though it ends abruptly when Miharu sneezes and unintentionally [=KO's=] Kosame]].
* NinjaMaid: Fukuyama has an entire MaidCorps at his disposal, all of them being ex-military. Most notably Lilica, who's a former mercenary and said to be a trained killer. She's so formidable, that she's the undefeated Girls Fight! champion.
* OncePerEpisode: Kirie beating up someone while telling them to "Go (x)... IN HELL!" (Example: "Go look for her... IN HELL!") Though [[BorrowedCatchphrase Tomoka does this instead in one episode]].
** Though not actually every episode, several begin with a [[{{Fanservice}} shower/bath scene. Even if it adds nothing to the story or character development]].
* OnlySaneMan:
** Yukinari in most cases. In episode 13, he and Koyomi were the only ones who wondered whether everyone was ''really'' moved during the aftermath of the tournament, or just applauding [[GirlOnGirlIsHot the sight of Kosame kissing Kirie after a R-rated tournament]].
** Hayate and Lilica are the only levelheaded ones at the Fukuyama manor. The same usually applies to Kosame... so long as Kirie isn't around.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Nonlethal variant; Kirie almost always yells "(Verb) IN HELL!!!" before unleashing a MegatonPunch on Fukuyama or (occasionally) Yukinari. Tomoka also starts doing this as well (much to Kirie's approval).
* ProductPlacement: Honda motorcycles among others.
* PsychoLesbian: Kosame has got it bad for Kirie and is determined to get her in bed. And as if she weren't enough, Hijiri's got her sights set on her too.
* RefugeInAudacity: In episode 23, Yukinari and the others finally go to Seiren, to rescue Miharu. The moment the women of Seiren lay eyes on them, they [[ZergRush make a beeline for Fukuyama]], who gladly volunteers to stay behind to [[DoubleEntendre "hold them off"]]. Which is followed by a montage sequence of the women eagerly allowing him to strip them naked, grope, and fondle them to both his and ''their own'' hearts' content.
* SeriousBusiness: Mamoru asks Lilica, who's had military training, for advice on cleaning.
* SkinshipGrope: Kosame, See the ThanksForTheMammaries entry.
* SpitTake: Yukinari does one in episode 2 when Miharu pops out of the shower.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: When Yukinari confronts Yukina in final episode, instead of fighting they have a heart-to-heart talk and he convinces her to not commit {{Gendercide}}. Unfortunately for him, it also turned her into a StalkerWithACrush.
* TheStinger: At the end of the anime's second season, [[spoiler:all of the main characters have returned to Earth]].
* TheStoic: Hayate (except when someone asks him to marry him), Kosame (when she isn't around Kirie), and Lilica (unless told that Fukuyama has friends).
* TooHotForTV
* VillainousRescue: Risa ends up having to save the main characters in one episode after one of her spells goes awry and summons a giant octopus.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Yukina.
[[/folder]]


[[folder: Manga Exclusive Examples]]
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Invoked, Exploited and Lampshaded by Fukuyama in a certain story, when he talks the girls in dressing as cheerleaders [[spoiler:for cheering Yukinari in a competition. In the end their cheering distracts all the other (male) contestants and somehow Yukinari wins]].
-->"Girls' cheering encourage a guy! Cheered on by a cute chick, a guy gets a major energy boost!"
* BizarroUniverse: The world on the other side of the magic mirror in a chapter of the manga.
* CostumePorn: Mario Kaneda's manga and promotional artwork regularly show off the characters (the girls especially) in unbelievably beautiful and detailed outfits.
* EasilyForgiven: Fukuyama from Kirie after every chapter. You may think that, given his neverending schemes to get Kirie out of her clothes, his constant harassing, his lewd-filled mind, or just even the casual groping, she would have some general issues with him. Well.. no. Until Fukuyama actually makes something transparently perverted, Kirie will treat him normally, like he is just a rowdy aquaintance no matter how much he had done to her in the previous chapter. This naivety makes her his favorite and tastier target. The reason could be either to [[StatusQuoIsGod don't slow down the narration]] or [[BelligerentSexualTension creating a secondary romantic plot]], but one might even think that [[AuthorAppeal Kirie may get angry on the spot when harassed, but not be too unsettled about it in the long run]] or is simply so used to it she don't mind it too much anymore.
** Averted in a story, when she [[spoiler: wantonly decides to storm the Fukuyama Mansion to find blackmailing material about him to make him mend his perverted ways. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard things doesn't end nicely for her modesty]]]].
** Averted from Koyomi, utterly scared of Fukuyama (in her best days)
** Averted from Miharu, who doesn't even register Fukuyama's schemes as a problem.
** Of course, not even present in the Anime, where even Kirie is suspicious of Fukuyama and punch him on the spot whenever [[StealthHiBye he comes out]].
* EvilTwin: [[spoiler: Fukuyama has one on Seiren, more lecherous and amoral than him, showing up in the last manga's arc as a [[BigBadWannabe would-be evil braggart]], kidnapping Miharu and trying to add her to his own harem marrying her against her will]].
* FanServiceWithASmile: Miharu.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Kirie. While in the Anime she is only a little naive, in the Manga she often find herself like this. Trusting over and over [[ConsummateLiar Fukuyama]] and walking straight for his tricks, or when she trust his apologies after he has done [[HandsomeLech something perverted]], only [[RunningGag for him to do it again]] the moment she turns her back to him. Happens so many times one can almost wonder if she isn't [[{{Tsundere}} doing it on purpose]]. Curiously, this doesn't extend to Machida, who is always correctly seen as a [[VirginityMakesYouStupid dumb humanoid hurricane]] and dealt properly.
* IJustWantToBeNormal:
** Played straight with Yukinari. Averted the Anime, as he goes with the flow and is just content to have Miharu around; in the Manga Yukinari actively tries to free himself of his allergy to females. He goes to the point of even accepting (more or less willingly) the "help" of the girls or even Risa's magic ([[spoiler:: it doesn't help at all]]), several times. From time to time, the allergy seems to recede, but it's really erratic.
** Subverted with Fukuyama. He is perfectly fine with his allergy to males. And it's an excellent excuse to surround himself with (beautiful) women.
** Downplayed for Kirie, that for an entire story keep asking herself why all the males around town can't simply leave her alone (see the HelloNurse entry) but actually doesn't realize she is any different from other girls.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Parodied, twice. Everytime Machida force the gang to don hero suits, Fukuyama show up dressed as a human-cockroach antagonist.
** One could also wonder if Fukuyama himself is the MonsterOfTheWeek that drop in every week.
* NobleDemon: Played for Laughs, always Straight (in-universe) and sometimes Zig Zagged for Fukuyama. He will stop at nothing to get the girls out of their clothes (or in his bed), even at the cost of getting badly injured (of course, always Played for Laughs) or lose huge amounts of cash or having his home totally wrecked. But surprisingly, he wouldn't try anything if they are excessively vulnerable: seen in multiple cases with Miharu ([[spoiler:almost everytime, as she isn't exactly sharp, but notably when she is unsure of her relation with Yukinari]]), Koyomi ([[spoiler:when she is depressed he only force hugs on her... not that she finds it reassuring]]) and even Kirie ([[spoiler:when in a certain case [[OutOfCharacterMoment she fondly hugs him]] even if clearly pleased, he does not react]]).
* VirginityMakesYouStupid: Machida is the king of this trope. While he is obviously interested in Kirie (see the LustObject entry) he is the one assured to never get anything out of it, hilariously he comes out even worst than the female-phobic Yukinari. To a lesser degree all the main characters seem to conform to this trope (actually, half of the comedy scenes comes out because they are unable to correctly interact with each other); save the master manipulator [[HandsomeLech Fukuyama]], and this could imply [[ReallyGetsAround something about him]]. Averted in the Anime, where the cast is not so clueless (save for Miharu... but she is Miharu).
* WardrobeMalfunction: Many plots of Fukuyama are based around this (see also TheNudifier).
** Enforced, Invoked and Lampshaded all in a single story, when [[ManipulativeBastard Fukuyama]] talks the three girls [[spoiler: into serving as his maids so they could learn to behave as proper ladies, but he has prepared for them hi-tech maid dresses that strips automatically if the wearer is distressed, a situation that he is apt to exploit]].
* WeirdnessMagnet: Lampshaded by Yukinari in the manga:
-->"Why do we attract all the weirdos?"

[[/folder]]


[[folder:Multiple Media Examples]]
* AbhorrentAdmirer
** Of course, Fukuyama for Kirie and Koyomi. Even though Kirie is the more affected by Fukuyama's onslaughts, is Koyomi that accumulates trauma over trauma. Miharu is his target too, but Downplayed because usually she doesn't seem to mind him (or doesn't realize).
** Risa for Yukinari: He is utterly scared of her. (Anime) Averted for [[spoiler: Yukina]], Yukinari finds her only troubling.
** (Anime) Both Kosame and Hijiri for Kirie, who apparently regard them [[PsychoLesbian even more problematic]] than Fukuyama.
** (Manga) Machida for [[spoiler: Kirie]] in some twisted way. She isn't really pleased about that.
** Actually, most male passerby for Kirie (see the LustObject entry). To the point Tomoka at one time suggest Kirie just spread around too strong pheromones, actually messing guys' head.
* AccidentalPervert
** Yukinari. He has the misfortune of being the protagonist of a harem series, so the laws of plot ensure that it happens and that he suffers for it. Some examples from the first volume/episodes [[spoiler: in the first chapter/episode he walk in the naked Kirie about to shower herself in his bath, then is forced to teleport in the same bathtub where Miharu was making a bath, and then teleport back in his own bathtub where Kirie was taking a bath! Just one chapter/episode later at school he actually falls face first into Kirie's crotch then remaining scared stiff for a while with the head still under her skirt. And just when you think only good things happens, turning a corner he falls on all fours on [[CuteButPsycho Risa Fukuyama]] somehow winning her love in the process (however, Downplayed in the Manga, since is portrayed less appealing [[{{Fanservice}} than in the Anime]])]].
** Parodied (if you can even parody this trope) with Machida. He only acts trying to make justice prevail, but somehow his action come back on Kirie (and in the Manga, Koyomi and Miharu too) leaving her in [[{{Fanservice}} indecent situations]], the parody is that in many istances, he doesn't even notice it (before receiving [[UnprovokedPervertPayback his punishment]], at least).
* ADayInTheLimelight:
** A story focuses largely on Risa, and gives her some backstory on her magic use.
** (Manga only) a chapter focuses almost only on Koyomi helping a child, [[spoiler: which is later revealed a little [[{{Youkai}} Yuki Onna]] ]].
** Several chapters and one episode are mainly focused on Kirie, detailing her problematic [[HelloNurse everyday life]].
* AllergicToLove
** Yukinari gets rashes whenever he is touched by a girl, as a result of bullying. Miharu apparently doesn't trigger this.
** Inverted with Fukuyama, who's allergic to men.
** (Anime only) Yukina, is similarly allergic to men, which is the reason she wants to KillEmAll.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Tons, straight for most characters.
** [[spoiler: Yukinari likes Miharu but for the large part of the series, she don't seems to reciprocate more than a friendly affection (somehow Averted in the Anime, but only lightly); Kirie, Risa, Yukina (Anime only) all likes Yukinari, and even Koyomi (Manga only) may have an interest on him (but he seems to not even notice them or finds troubling the most forthcoming ones); Fukuyama likes Kirie, Koyomi and Miharu (they will never yeld to him an inch); (Anime only) Kosame, Hijiri and (Manga only) Machida all likes Kirie each one in his twisted way (it's simply not going to happen).]]
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Yukinari's been bullied by girls since he was a child.
* AllWomenAreLustful:
** The women of Seiren as a whole, who're all sexually repressed ''and'' horny, which doesn't become apparent until they lay eyes on a male. At that point, all sense of feminine modesty goes out the window as they'll ZergRush said male, to get dibs on them.
** (Anime only) Even Miharu eventually begins to show such a side. For instance, in one episode of the anime where Fukuyama convinces everyone to play a game of mahjong, and Miharu's winning hand gives her a right to "rub" Yukinari three times (could also mean massage or fondle), she blushes and laughs a laugh that is distinctly not so innocent. Some of what she says while "rubbing" him also counts.
** (Anime only) Kosame turns out to be NotSoStoic whenever she's around Kirie (see the PsychoLesbian entry).
** This also applies to Lisa, who lusts for Yukinari. In the anime, she even has Kosame hold him at gunpoint to make him try the banquet she prepared for him. After which, she disrobes and places Yukinari's hand on her breast in an attempt to cure him of his girl phobia. In the manga she is more reserved, but not too much.
-->'''Lisa: (naughty grin)''' "Now... enjoy me. [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre It's time for 'dessert.']]"
-->'''*Yukinari screams and runs away*'''
-->'''Lisa: (runs offscreen behind him)''' "Where are you going?? Get back here and '''[[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe FONDLE ME]]!!'''"
** (Manga only) Exaggerated in a story, when [[spoiler:Fukuyama tests a dream-machine on Yukinari, making him dream every girl of the cast beside Miharu that lust him like Risa usually does. In the end they are discovered by Kirie, and it doesn't [[MegatonPunch end]] [[UnprovokedPervertPayback well]]]].
** Just hinted for Kirie, if she get angry [[UnprovokedPervertPayback at Yukinari]] for things he didn't do and didn't even planned to do, it means she thinks about them more than the average (although repressed) male teenager. Doesn't sounds right? Well... could be Justified, given all the things that Fukuyama does to her or makes her do. This become clear in the Manga, when Kirie [[spoiler: wanders in a magical mirror and pass in a parallel world where the local Yukinari is a (Fukuyama-style) womanizer. When he pushes her down and begins to strip her, her efforts to resist him are not really forceful or convincing]].
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The [[spoiler: ghost]] girl in episode 10 (or chapter 3) after she [[spoiler: possesses Kirie and]] hugs Yukinari.
* AttractiveBentGender: Yukinari is forced to dress up as a girl multiple times ([[spoiler: in the anime in order to host a gaming tournament, in the manga several times to count them]]). Each and every time his disguise is so convincing that even the local pervert Fukuyama mistakes him for a pretty girl, [[UnsettlingGenderReveal which makes the metaphorical bridge all too heavy for Fukuyama]].
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe:
** It's pretty obvious that Yukinari was going to fall for Miharu considering that she's the only girl who treats him with genuine kindness and doesn't bully him or beat him up. Needless to say, he doesn't really hold feelings of love for Kirie who has a crush on him but brutally beats him up constantly or for Lisa who's insane and constantly tries to abduct him.
*** Made ridiculously {{Anvilicious}} by the fact that Yukinari has an allergy to women: every woman in both worlds the show takes place in, ''except for Miharu'', causes him to break out in hives.
** Koyomi finds Yukinari less repulsive than other males [[spoiler:(and after not much time, not repellent at all) because he saved her from a pit she herself had digged, even if his hives where rankling him]].
** (Anime only) Yukina [[spoiler:The BigBad]] falls for Yukinari for similar reasons. She is also in a similar situation: Yukinari is the ''only'' guy that does not trigger her allergy to men. By the end of the series she takes every opportunity to cling to him to make up for a lifetime of being starved of physical intimacy.
* BelligerentSexualTension
** (Manga) Kirie and Yukinari biker a lot (actually, she is the only female with whom he squabbles), sometimes like an old couple. And while Kirie pretty much likes Yukinari he conceals the interest for her (which, anyway seems [[LustObject not of the]] [[ChildhoodFriendRomance romantical kind]]) fearing a violent retribution.
** (Manga) Kirie and Fukuyama, sometime. When he isn't harassing her or the other girls (and getting beaten to a pulp for it) their relation is fairly good, and seems to even get better when he tries to set a mood instead than doing his usual tricks. She even go so far to ask or accept his help, when there're not easier alternatives or even praising him when he (rarely) does something selfless.
** (Anime) Sometimes near the end of the second season, seems to be something of this between Kirie and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Fukuyama]]. But you should look carefully, because their relation is very much belligerent with almost none sexual tension (much to Fukuyama chagrin).
* BestHerToBedHer: Fukuyama is firmly convinced of this: in his head showing off is awesomeness in every (EVERY, not kidding) area soon or later will make Kirie, Koyomi and Miharu fall for him. Period.
** In the Anime he is more direct, [[spoiler: challenging Kirie and then Koyomi to a (rigged) ping pong match, whereby the girls would carry out some "special duties" for him in case of defeat]].
** In the Manga Fukuyama plays it more sportingly, only showing off in every area he can ([[spoiler: ice sculptures, ping pong, cooking, '''cheerleading''' and so on]]). While he is annoying like a buzzing fly, all in all, he came off way less creepy in the manga.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Tomoka and Fukuyama develop this sort of relationship and by the end she is the only character to refer to him by his given name, Kazuharu (he may have ulterior motives, as he reasons that Tomoka in 10 years will most probably be a beauty worthy of his harem).
* BigEater: Miharu. Handwaved in the manga, in that anyone from Seiren living on Earth full-time apparently requires vast amounts of energy. (It's less of an issue for Koyomi and Tomoka because they make regular trips home).
* BoyishShortHair: Both Kirie and Kosame sport cropped hairdos.
* ButtMonkey
** Yukinari and Fukuyama (and less often Machida) are constantly beat up and abused by Kirie and to a lesser extent the other girls beside Miharu (except when she goes berserk), and they both have allergic reactions to members of a certain gender.
** Kirie herself usually becomes one (in the Anime) when she is around a PsychoLesbian, most often (in the Manga) simply being around Fukuyama (sometimes, he doesn't even need to plot something or be aware of her presence).
** The timid, male-phobic Koyomi gets molested and abused to a disturbing extent (mostly by Fukuyama).
** Ebi, the cat-like-pet, that often Tomoka treats as a toy or a laser gun (yes, you read right).
* CanNotSpitItOut
** In the initial part Koyomi and Miharu for Yukinari, [[spoiler: when Koyomi takes Miharu back to Seiren. They don't tell him that Miharu would be able to return to Earth, with time, thus triggering a tearful goodbye on Yukinari's part, throwing him in a depressive state hardly tended by Kirie, until they come back like nothing ever happened]].
** Kirie for Yukinari, [[spoiler: she has never the strenght or the sheer will to tell him how she feels, even though they are [[ChildhoodFriendRomance rather close]]]].
* ChickMagnet: Yukinari. By the end of the series he has four girls after him ([[spoiler: Miharu, Kirie, Risa and a fourth]]). But since he's allergic to all women other than Miharu, he hardly sees it as ''[[BlessedWithSuck a good thing]]''
** In the Manga there's an interest from and toward [[spoiler: Koyomi]], which is often hinted, but [[TheNotLoveInterest never explored]], while in the Anime this element wasn't even introduced, and instead the fourth girl is [[spoiler: Yukina]].
* ChildhoodFriendRomance
** (Anime only) Subverted. While Kirie ''does'' harbor feelings towards Yukinari, the only time she attempts to get closer to him is during the 4th episode, when she makes a bento for him in hopes of spending some time alone with him. Not long after, she accepts that Yukinari is in love with Miharu and settles for being friends with him.
** (Manga only) Downplayed. Kirie has feelings for Yukinari, and from time to time she attempts to get closer to him (bringing him along for shopping, or some part-time work... many of these strategies often backfires thanks to [[{{Tsundere}} her]] [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak character]]), but tend to happen less as the manga proceed. There's not a real withdrawal, in fact Kirie seems too much taken in her chaotic everyday life to even think about romance. By the end [[spoiler: she "seems" prone to passively accept whatever may happens (as lampshaded in an artwork from the last volume, with both [[MarryThemAll her and Miharu in wedding dress]]), reinforced by the fact that the "official couple" [[NoRomanticResolution doesn't seem to have progressed at all]]]].
* ClingyJealousGirl
** Risa over Yukinari.
** (Anime only) Yukina too.
** Kirie and Miharu are usually more subtle about their affections towards him, but from time to time they invoke this trope too (especially in the Manga), and the random {{Tsundere}} behaviours of Kirie should be read in this light.
* ConsummateLiar: Fukuyama. No holds barren. Even lies are weapons to further his dream (his own private harem), and he is good at using them like he is good as literally everything else. Like when [[spoiler: he takes UpToEleven the food poisoning he got from Kirie's bento to coax her into wearing a sexy-nurse dress to nurse him back to health (see the HelloNurse entry)]].
* ConvenientlyClosePlanet: Earth takes up a large portion of Seiren's sky when it's not raining.
* CutenessProximity: When Ebi is transformed from a seal like creature into a little girl, almost all the characters find her incredibly adorable.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt:
** Standard female attire at Mizuno high school is extremely short.
** Many of Kirie's everyday clothes barely cover her hips [[spoiler:to the point one can wonder if she isn't trying to seduce Yukinari]].
** (Manga only) The skirt of the pick-up clothes that Kirie force on Koyomi on a certain occasion, at best cover the waist.
* DefeatByModesty: Zig Zagged with Kirie. This is usually how Fukuyama delay his punishments, [[spoiler:he simply [[TheNudifier undresses]] Kirie (partially o totally) on the spot or charge in when she is already underdressed. But he is so damn lecherous that he simply stays around until she finally recovers from the shame and goes from ReluctantFanserviceGirl to ShamelessFanserviceGirl to deal with him]].
** Averted with Miharu, that can't care less to be barenaked everywhere.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Fukuyama; Koyomi; (Anime only) Yukina.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale
** Kirie is the main offender, considering she hits Yukinari nearly every time she thinks he's being a pervert.
** (Anime only) Kosame also counts, since she usually abuses Fukuyama at Risa's behest.... including [[OffhandBackhand absentmindedly]] [[ToonPhysics shooting him in the face twice]], point-blank, while [[spoiler: snapping "wedding" photos of Risa and Yukinari]]. And all of this is PlayedForLaughs.
* {{Ecchi}} : You can bet on it. What we think of as modern-day ecchi anime basically began with ''Manga/IkkiTousen'' (2003), ''VisualNovel/GreenGreen'' (2003) and Girls Bravo (2004), each making way to a different subgenre. There had been ecchi series before then, but not quite like these.
* EmbarrassingOldPhoto
** (Anime only) Fukuyama uses a [[spoiler: baby picture of Kirie wetting the bed]] to blackmail her into entering the "Girls Fight!" competition, and offers to give it back only if she wins. In the end, he tears it up even though she lost and vows to keep it a secret, since he got to see her [[BarelyThereSwimwear in a g-string]].
** (Manga only) Same situation as in the anime, but Kirie got instead roped (with Miharu, Koyomi and, as an extra Yukinari) in a perverted Treasure Hunt.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: The point of the whole series is (or should be) Yukinari [[spoiler: crawling out of his problematic allergy]], it doesn't really happen.
* {{Fanservice}}: The first piece of it is shown within the first 10 ''seconds'' of the first episode. Hell, the opening of the second season of the anime is a nude roll call of the female cast. The manga is [[NippleAndDimed less explicit]] in that there's [[HandOrObjectUnderwear no actual nudity]], but it's still pretty over-the-top.
* FreakyFridayFlip: In the second season of the anime, Lisa's magic in the school swimming pool causes Yukinari and Fukuyama to switch bodies. Later, several other character's switch bodies, both intentionally and accidentally, when they realize what was causing the switching to take place. Happens similarly in the manga, too, but is more tamed and the swap happens only between Yukinari and Fukuyama.
* FriendlyEnemy: The Fukuyama siblings to the rest of the cast; how many other shows are there where the main antagonists are also DropInCharacter? Of course, sometimes they get a little too friendly.
* FuroScene: Girls Bravo starts with this in all media. After that, it happens many times in the manga, which in this respect is still overshadowed by the anime, where it occurs almost every other episode.
* GetAholdOfYourselfMan: Subverted as both Kirie and Fukuyama attempt this on Yukinari after Miharu is [[spoiler: kidnapped]] only to discover that when you have spent years beating up a guy for fun, slapping him when he is severely depressed and crying, will not do much. He is eventually snapped out of it by a speech on ManlyTears.
* GivingThemTheStrip
** (Manga) In a dream of Kirie, [[spoiler: the three main girls are a ClassyCatBurglar . At one point, the lecherous detective Dream!Fukuyama glues Dream!Kirie and Dream!Koyomi to the floor. In the end they rip their own clothes and proceed to bash him]].
** (Anime) Same situation of the Manga, but is a sort of home movie made for some sort of school's event, probably.
* GrewASpine: Yukinari. In both the endings of Anime and Manga when he [[spoiler:goes to Seiren to save Miharu]]. Played Straight in the Anime, where he [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath face]] the powerful [[spoiler:Yukina]] alone. Parodied in the Manga, where [[spoiler: after passing several hurdles, it all comes to nothing when he tries to punch the [[BigBadWannabe Alternate!Fukuyama]], and is beaten to it by Regular!Fukuyama, that shows there at the last minute, gaining all the praises. Lampshaded by Yukinari himself, when even Kirie commends Fukuyama]].
--> [[spoiler:"What about me...?" ]]
* GuiltyPleasure: Despite often being criticized for its excessive fanservice, sparse character development, and lack of any meaningful plot, there's no denying that ''Girls Bravo'' still has its fans, so much it got a second season, and a Visual Novel.
** You can bet on it!
* HandsomeLech: Fukuyama is perverted enough to make '''[[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Happosai]]''' look gay. Also, he is so handsome that pretty much every (female or gay male) non-named character falls for him in minutes.
* HelloNurse: Kirie has this:
** So much so, that [[CasanovaWannabe Fukuyama]], [[PsychoLesbian Kosame and Hijiri]] all want a piece of her. A later episode showed she couldn't even walk down the street without being mobbed by middle-aged men, boys and even kids asking her for dates, much to her chagrin.
** The 4th episode takes the trope to literal extremes, when Fukuyama pretends to be sick after eating some of [[LethalChef Kirie's bento]] and guilt trips her into wearing a nurse's costume while she looks after him.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard
** Beside what anyone may think, mostly Averted with Fukuyama. His master plans are always succesful, per se, but they fail when he lose focus of the plan, gloating too much or revealing the trap the others had mistakenly walked into. Like in the onsen story, in the Anime (see the CurbStompBattle entry)
** Surprisingly played by Kirie, when she gets ahead of herself. For example
*** In the Anime [[spoiler: she forces Yukinari to crossdress for a part-time and then "sell" him to Fukuyama, to get revenge on the pervert and -presumably- on the oblivious protagonist that doesn't seem to even look at her. While her plan mostly works, she gets anyway her usual [[ThanksForTheMammary greet from Fukuyama]]]], not that bright if she was scheming to get even to him.
*** In the Manga [[spoiler: storming the Fukuyama Mansion to find blackmailing material about him and make him mend his perverted ways, she ends up phographed and taped on varying degrees of nakedness before being caught almost bare in his royal bathroom just while he is obliviously walking in. While he gets [[MegatonPunch randomply punched]]]], is easy to see how much her plan backfired. Lampshaded and foreshadowed by Koyomi at the beginning of the chapter:
-->"This will only increase our suffering!"
* HotBlooded
** Kirie: she work part-time (lots of them), launch herself headfirst against problems, is quick to the assumption "first punch, then ask" and she will never, ''never'', NEVER refuse a challenge (ask [[ManipulativeBastard Fukuyama]]). In the Anime is evident, and in the Manga is (unsurprisingly) taken [[UpToEleven to the extreme]].
** (Manga only) Fukuyama to a certain extent and only related to his lewdness. He has dreams (a harem), passions (hot girls) and (questionable) moral values, and may the gods protect whoever threatens and endangers them.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Kirie sometimes invokes this trope. Mainly in the Anime (especially when challenged, she is not over using her [[MostCommonSuperPower most natural gifts]] to win, as seen in Tomoka's introductory episode) and sometimes (Downplayed) in the Manga when she wants something from Fukuyama.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Miharu has no qualms about showing up naked in front of Yukinari (or even Fukuyama, for what is worth) and once tried forcing him to bathe with her. At one point in the anime she even walks around [[NakedApron only wearing an apron]] because she thought Yukinari seeing her in something from his porn stash would make him happy. Also, the banana scene from the second episode. Good Lord.
* InstantCosplaySurprise: Fukuyama is a master at this, with Kirie as his favorite victim.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold:
** Fukuyama. In the Manga is often Played for laughs, getting [[NobleDemon an upgrade]]. Instead in the Anime this trope is more outspoken ([[spoiler:in the episode where Tomoka get lost]]); chance are that in this case it was probably reinforced for establishing a BelligerentSexualTension with Kirie, and [[ShipTease shipteasing]] a Fukuyama x Kirie couple.
** (Anime only) Sometimes Kirie is this for Yukinari (for example, when she [[spoiler:force him to crossdress and then "sell" him to Fukuyama, for the disgust of both boys]]); is often hinted this COULD be a form of jeaulosy peculiar to her {{Tsundere}} behaviour.
* LethalChef: Kirie, at normal tsundere-tomboy level in the Anime, taken [[UpToEleven to the extreme]] in the Manga.
* LordErrorProne: Mamoru Machida, wanna-be superhero and self-proclaimed savior of the neighborhood; since he's oblivious to what's really going on, he's easily the most destructive of the minor characters, and sometimes even of all.
* LovableSexManiac: Fukuyama and his sister, Lisa, are [[BirdsOfAFeather two of a kind]], though Kirie and Yukinari [[AbhorrentAdmirer would disagree]] about the "lovable" part.
* LoveDodecahedron: It's a harem, after all. More linear in the Manga, more convoluted in the Anime.
* LustObject: In-universe, Kirie's so hot that one story showed she can't even walk down the street alone without being mobbed by men asking her out.
** Fukuyama literally throws himself on her in every (EVERY) way.
** (Anime) Kosame, and Hijiri, also want to get in her pants, with Kosame being both the most persistent and the one who [[NearRapeExperience comes closest to succeeding.]] She even manages to [[SmoochOfVictory lay one on her.]]
** (Manga) Even Machida seems to have a troublesome interest in Kirie, costantly trying to dress her as a [[MiniDressOfPower Mamo "Pink" Ranger]] (which make all the more sense in a disturbing way, if you take in account his obsession with said [[PowerRangers hero series]], that he is the Red Ranger, and the canonical relation between the [[TheHero Red]] and [[TheChick Pink Ranger]] in many franchises).
** (Manga) You can see that it's just too much, when even the rather tame Yukinari explode in a {{Nosebleed}} every time she ends up naked or underdressed.
** (Manga) Several Alternate characters in the BizarroUniverse [[spoiler: pursue her so relentlessly that Fukuyama in comparison almosts seems shy and respectful]].
* ManipulativeBastard
** Fukuyama (Played for Laughs), seen several times and mostly in the Manga. For example in one story, [[spoiler:leveraging on their insecurities he talk Miharu, Koyomi and Kirie into serving as his maids to learn to behave as proper ladies.. of course, he had prepared for them several maid outfits naturally prone to clothes malfunction]].
** Kirie (Anime only). Displayed tendencies of this sort (pretty much all in the Anime), like in the the second season when [[spoiler: she emotionally manipulated Yukinari into cross-dressing for an event and allowed Fukuyama to practically molest Yukinari since it meant Fukuyama would pay her for it; while [[KarmaHoudini she didn't get really punished for it]], she [[ThanksForTheMammary didn't get out safely]] either]].
* MatchmakerCrush: Kirie in the Anime. Her crush has an unlucky spin from the moment Miharu comes into the picture and she seems to rapidly renounce to Yukinari. Downplayed in the Manga, here she likes Yukinari -to an extent- and often try to help him to get along Miharu or outright save her (with or without him). But she never confess to him or try to help them becoming a couple (see the ChildhoodFriendRomance entry).
* MegatonPunch: In the Manga, frequently executed by Kirie against Fukuyama and Yukinari. Less common in the Anime, where Kirie usually uses more complex fighting skills on Fukuyama and other villains. Still, Yukinari receives this more often than not.
* ModestyTowel
** (Anime) Kirie get one in her [[NakedOnArrival first appearance]], however this trope is quickly forgotten and both Kirie and Miharu are often seen without it, even by the boys. Trope Justified later, in the end of the first season, when all the characters get at least one in the onsen arc [[spoiler: because they find themselves in need of interacting in an open bath during the ghost-girl story and later, thanks to the Fukuyama's "mixed" onsen]].
** (Manga) In at least one or two chapters per volume. All the girls get one, and sometimes even Fukuyama. Instead Yukinari being the protagonist, isn't apparently interesting enough.
** (Manga) Actually Parodied when in one occasion Fukuyama [[spoiler: hands out handkerchief-sized towel for the girls to get out of some hot springs]].
* MsFanservice: Kirie provides the majority of the series' fanservice (see many entries in her section of the character sheet), in the Anime she alone provides more of this than the rest of the cast combined. In the Manga she is still this, but with a more balanced ratio.
* NakedApron
** (Anime) Miharu wears one in episode 6, after reading about it in one of Yukinari's magazines.
** (Manga) Kirie [[spoiler: in Yukinari's kitchen and at school (yes, at school, during Home Economics), after being somehow talked into in (you may even say "brainwashed") by Fukuyama]].
* NakedFirstImpression:
** Yukinari meets Miharu for the first time in her giant bathroom (of course being a bathroom, she is naked). Played for laughs when he subsequently faints on her.
** He is completely dressed, but Subverted because is revealed she often sees him through the water whenever he takes a bath. Yeah, every time.
** This may also count as Kirie for Miharu, as the former often use the bathtub at Yukinari's house.
** [[RunningGag Just because that first occurance may not count]], the next day Yukinari finds a naked Miharu sleeping in his bed.
** Played straight later in the series. Fukuyama is wrongly transported in the same bathtub of Miharu's house, when her sister Maharu is taking a bath (of course being a bathroom, she is naked too), thus she is this trope for him. Strangely, she is not amused.
* NakedOnArrival: both Miharu (also count as NakedFirstImpression ) and Kirie (initially Downplayed ([[spoiler: being mostly covered by a towel]]) and then Zig Zagged([[spoiler: showing much more -offscreen- in a rage burst to the protagonist, [[UnprovokedPervertPayback who isn't pleased]]]])).
* NiceGuy: Yukinari, which makes all the UnprovokedPervertPayback he suffers much worse for him.
* {{Nosebleed}}: At times, also the result of getting punched (and kneed) so hard in the face. One episode used this to show that the guys were excited about what the girls were doing....
* OpportunisticBastard: From time to time Fukuyama is this too, seizing the occasion and turning it around with his evil mischief.
** (Anime) Like when [[spoiler:he buys a whole hot spring on the spot and then turn it in a mixed bath, while the gang was staying in the same facility, without them even suspecting it... just so he can bathe with the girls, or so he thinks]].
** (Manga) More widespread in the Manga, but still present, often in collusion with Machida [[spoiler: for example, when Machida force the whole gang to wear hero suits, and then Fukuyama [[StealthHiBye just walking in]], istantly turn himself in an [[MonsterOfTheWeek canon evil cockroach]], ambushing and harrassing the girls around Yukinari's home]].
* PantyShot: You can expect it to happen at least OncePerEpisode, sometimes more. Less in the Manga.
* ParentalAbandonment
** (Anime) Despite almost all the major characters being school age the only parent talked about is Koyomi's DisappearedDad.
** (Manga) Before the end of the first volume [[spoiler: Yukinari's mother goes abroad so she could stay with her husband, leaving a 16-years-old neighbour girl that comes daily to shower in their house in care of her 16-years-old boy... you can easily see many problems in this approach]].
** (Manga) Also, in an extra chapter, Kirie talks with her mother (that is offscreen), but that's just the only times it happens and for whatever we see about Kirie's life, her mother could've well live somewhere else. She isn't even seen when, some volumes later Yukinari barges in Kiries home in early morning.
* SatelliteLoveInterest: It's never said ''what'' Miharu sees in Yukinari, since the matter never comes up. She just does.
** Discussed and Parodied in the Manga, where in an extra chapter the various characters make suppositions about ''what'' she could see in him, voicing instead their own (often bad) opinions of Yukinari.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Kirie at times, trampling her usual ReluctantFanserviceGirl role. Is her nonviolent reaction when she lose sight of the reality (usually when challenged or if someone is extremely convincing in a roundabout logic).
** In the Anime is only hinted one time, rather directly (see the ShowSomeLeg entry).
** In the Manga is a sort of RunningGag when Fukuyama or someone else tease her enough. For example [[spoiler: when Fukuyama persuade her that a NakedApron is the only suitable outfit in the kitchen, or whenever she is stripped just so much in the same chapter for shame no longer having any point (usually using that opening to punch the culprit). Sometimes she is simply so distressed that she doesn't care if some innocent bystander (read "Yukinari") is around [[{{Nosebleed}} when she ends up barenaked]]]].
* ShesGotLegs: Kirie, many of the costumes she dons (willing or not) focus the attention on her legs, at least initially. This is also true with many of her everyday attires (present in the Anime but showcased in many chapter covers of the Manga, an overwhelming portion is dedicated to her). Koyomi, Miharu and Risa (with her dark-magic robe) are up to it, but only to a minor degree.
** FeetFirstIntroduction: (Anime only) and this is how Kirie is mostly introduced when disrobed in such a manner. This happens also in her ModestyTowel introduction, in the Anime.
* ShowSomeLeg: Kirie from time to time, forgetting her usual ReluctantFanserviceGirl trait (when there's a challenge at stake apparently she loses all her restraints), many times even Koyomi and Miharu are involved in these odd situations.
** (Manga) Among other things, [[spoiler: the girls dons tight cheerleed outfits to cheer for Yukinari at an eating contest, or are forced to wear slutty Halloween costumes to get out of Fukuyama's Manor]]
** (Anime) To win a contest again Tomoka [[spoiler: Kirie persuades the other two to wear some animal cosplay costumes or even Queen Race minidresses, to appeal as many male passerby as possible, even going [[OutOfCharacterMoment out of character]]]]:
--> '''Kirie:''' Koyomi-chan! Here, like this! [[spoiler:(squeeze together her own boobs, before a flock of creeps making their photoshoot)]]
--> '''Koyomi:''' But, I can't do something like that.
--> '''Kirie:''' You're not losing anything by showing some cleavage and panty! Now, bend forward. Don't hold your skirt!
--> '''Yukinari''' (from distance): That Kirie. When it comes to a challenge, she can't see anything else.
* ShrinkingViolet
** Yukinari became timid, after years spent being bullied by girls who used to pick on him due to his pint-sized stature. Handwaved after Miharu's arrival.
** Koyomi is more or less the same. In her case, it's because she's afraid of men, especially perverts like Fukuyama.
* StalkerWithACrush: Lots.
** Lisa for Yukinari
** Fukuyama for any pretty girl but mostly goes after Kirie or Koyomi, in the Manga he is pretty forward to Miharu, but she usually [[InnocentFanserviceGirl doesn't realize it]].
** (Anime) Kosame for Kirie; Hijiri was obsessed with Miharu since they were children but later switches over to Kirie;
** (Anime) By the end of the series [[spoiler: Yukina]] for Yukinari;
** (Manga) Mamoru Machida for Kirie, see his entry on LustObject.
* StatusQuoIsGod: If not for a piling of suitors, the epilogue of the anime could easily fit in any other episode. Same for the manga, as the last chapter celebrate a situation already seen from the 4th volume onward.
* StealthHiBye: When Koyomi first arrives on Earth in Yukinari's house, Fukuyama appears in there out of nowhere while Kirie is talking to her. This tend to be his usual entry in the Manga.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Yukinari winds up attracting a lot of unwanted attention when Kirie manipulates him into [[AttractiveBentGender crossdressing as a girl]], every time.
* ThanksForTheMammary: The resident lech, both PsychoLesbian and even non-named character love Kirie a little too much:
** Fukuyama doesn't care if she beats him up for it, he'll [[WorthIt gladly suffer her suplexes]] if it means getting the chance to get his hands around her massive melons. Sometimes groping Kirie through her shirt isn't enough for him, so he'll yank it up for the sake of doing it directly.
** (Anime) And during their semi-final bout at the "Girls Fight!" competition, Kosame dropped all pretense of fighting with Kirie in favor of nuzzling her boobs and feeling her up while she was at it.
** (Anime) Enforced for Yukinari, [[spoiler: when a female ghost possessing Kirie's body ask him to grope her, in order for her to ascend]], apparently he didn't disliked it as much as he would affirm before.
** (Manga) Even perfectly non-named characters try this. [[spoiler: One time, a schoolmate literally jumped on Kirie imploring her to date him, copping a feel in the meanwhile]].
** (Manga) Downplayed with Machida. When he tries to [[spoiler: forcibly dress her as "Mamo Pink", Kirie's reactions and other details hints that he cop a feel here and there, but is not clearly seen]].
* TheChewToy:
** Yukinari can't catch a break where girls are concerned, since they usually beat him up [[NotWhatItLooksLike over things that aren't his fault]]; especially his next-door neighbor, [[WithFriendsLikeThese Kirie]]. He's also the butt of Fukuyama's snark, who constantly refers to him as: [[MaliciousMisnaming "puny-nari"]]. While Fukuyama's sister, [[CuteButPsycho Lisa]], is obsessed with trying to make him her boyfriend.
** Kirie is constantly the target of Fukuyama's sexual harassment, or Machida misguided "good deeds".
** (Anime only) Still Kirie, with Kosame's attempts to get her in bed. Then Hijiri becomes fixated on her too, [[LustObject adding to the dogpile]].
** Fukuyama also qualifies. though he usually brings it on himself the vast majority of the time. Not that it ever dissuades him in any way. All it seems to do is ''[[WorthIt encourage him.]]''
** Machida, with all his questionable attempts to be a hero, often draws the short straw and get routinely beaten by Kirie, Risa's magic or even (Manga only) his own classmates.
* TheNudifier: Multiple istances, most in the manga.
** (Manga) Fukuyama is the personification of this trope, since he is able to strip away all the clothes from multiple girls (three is apparently his limit) in a single moment, leaving them only in their underwear... or less. Sometime he even takes the trouble to replace the clothes with some [[InstantCosplaySurprise cosplay costumes]].
** (Manga) Many plots of Fukuyama (at least a dozen on the course of the manga) actually revolve around this point, he is willing to use every mundane, occult or technological trick to get the girls (Kirie get the lion's share, but Miharu and Koyomi aren't exempted) out of their clothes.
** (Manga) In a certain story [[spoiler: a Doppelganger of Fukuyama, probably released by Risa, meeting the actual Fukuyama enact a curse that... strips all the females in the area down in their underwear. All of them, even actual bystanders, Risa or Kosame]].
** (Manga) Somehow even Machida at a certain point pick up Fukuyama's modus operandi [[spoiler: jumping out from nowhere and trying to strip Kirie to dress her as Mamo Pink, but he isn't skilled as Fukuyama, so he is rarely able to even take out her shirt]].
** (Anime) Mostly Averted, since it would be far too much for the already overbearing Fukuyama personality. Zig Zagged, if we count the device in the elevator of the Fukuyama Manor, which [[spoiler: scanned Kirie's body when she stepped in, then building a perfect replica of her naked figure in computer graphic, projecting it from different angles on maxi-screens and probably storing it somewhere]]; it didn't really stripped her, but was close enough.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Kirie to Yukinari in the first episode (which {{establish|ingCharacterMoment}}ed her as a {{Jerkass}}):
-->'''Kirie:''' You've ''always'' been a midget, a klutz and a blockhead. Not to mention slow in the head and snow on the uptake... I mean, I knew you were a hopelessly lame and worthless shell of a man, but to ''peep'' at me just because you can't get a girl...
** Also gives one in the second episode to Yukinari, because she's upset about him wallowing and giving up looking for Miharu, who was taken away by Fukuyama:
-->'''Kirie:''' WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO GETTING YOURSELF ALL DEPRESSED LIKE THAT?!
-->'''Yukinari:''' But, Kirie--
-->'''Kirie:''' Oh, just give it a rest! You've always been that way! You give up without even trying and you act like a hermit. You mope, and you're clumsy -- G*d, you're clumsy!
* TheTease: Kirie at times.
** (Anime) Exploited. Just see the related ShowSomeLeg entry.
** (Manga) In a story at a local festival, to get Fukuyama help she gets notably "friendly" with him. Not really [[ThanksForTheMammary "that friendly"]], but [[DistractedByTheSexy a lot more]] of what she could normally tolerate.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Risa, Kosame, and Fukuyama -- unfortunately for Yukinari, Kirie, and Koyomi.
** Fukuyama has actually been bothered by pain on three instances: [[spoiler: one, Kirie tied and left him in an oil drum full of boiling water; two, he was hit by truck; three, when Maharu [=KOed=] him with a kick to the face]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Kirie; for instance she shows concern for Yukinari and gives him her handkerchief to help him clean up after he was badly beaten, however she was the one who beat him because she walked in on Miharu changing in the living room.
** (Anime) It's also subtly implied that she may have secretly liked Fukuyama, at one point. [[AbhorrentAdmirer Now, she can't stand him.]]
* UnprovokedPervertPayback
** Yukinari is often subjected to this.
** Averted with Fukuyama, who often is deserving of any punishment he receives. Even the times he receive a punishment for something he didn't do.
** Parodied with Machida, who is too dumb to understand what he has done, but receive nonethelesse the deserved punishment.
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Occurs between Fukuyama and Yukinari, whenever Fukuyama grabs, grope or undress Yukinari when he was dressed as a girl (it happened [[RunningGag far too many times]], more in the manga than in the anime).
* UnwantedHarem: Yukinari has far too many girls after him:
** Miharu, who's the only one girl who ''doesn't'' trigger his allergy.
** Then there's Fukuyama's little sister, Lisa, who's [[CuteAndPsycho crazy]], practices dark magic, and has tried to abduct him to conscript him into {{unholy matrimony}}.
** Kirie, even though in the Anime she swiftly [[ChildhoodFriendRomance find a closure in friendship]], in the Manga is just leaved subtexted.
** (Manga) [[spoiler: Koyomi]] is often hinted as this, to the point that [[spoiler: when proposed a trip to some hot springs, Yukinari imagines the steam-clad figures of Miharu and Koyomi, not Kirie's]].
** (Anime) And finally, there's [[spoiler: Yukina]], the villain who's introduced in the final 3 episodes, when the group finally goes to Seiren.
* VillainousCrush: Fukuyama on Kirie and Koyomi, Risa on Yukinari, (Anime only) Hijiri and Kosame on Kirie.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Miharu in the manga as does in the anime. Lisa also wears them.
