* DuelingShows: With the other idol show of the season, ''Franchise/LoveLive''
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Japanese: both RealLife Music/AKB48 members and trainees are cast in the anime.
*** Ironically, Mayu Watanabe does not voice Mayu Watanabe MK 3. Instead, she voices Chieri Sono.
** English: This isn't the first [[Anime/{{Clannad}} Nagisa]] that Luci Christian has played.
*** [[BrittneyKarbowski Orine]] and [[MonicaRial Yukka]] are [[Manga/SoulEater Black Star and Tsubaki]].
* NonSingingVoice: Done a little oddly. When the characters are singing on their own or in a small group, the voice actresses provide their own singing. Yet during concerts, the songs we hear seem to be straight from the singles and stage albums. Gets particularly jarring in episode 21, where Yuuko is supposed to be singing the last, solo line in Heavy Rotation but the voice sounds nothing her voice actress's singing voice that we hear twice in the episode.
** The English dub is similiar, with songs being in English when the characters are singing in a casual situation, but switches to back to Japanese for the concert parts.
* RealLifeRelative: In the English dub, the sisters Kanata and Sonata are played by real life sisters Juliet and Genevieve Simmons.
