----
'''This comic provides examples of:'''

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Gin, Bec and Monica.
* BiTheWay: Gin ogles her female friends and used to be in a relationship with Sarah, but she's now in a happily monogamous relationship with Pyon.
* BuffySpeak: "It's cakes! Shaped like penises! Man penises!"
* CitizenshipMarriage: Referenced [[spoiler:when Gin is about to be deported and asks if it would help. The Immigration worker bursts out laughing before realising Gin was serious]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Several cast members get their turn at this role.
* CunningLikeAFox: Kitsunefoxy is a [[PettingZooPeople fox-girl]] and an enthusiastic liar.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Again, the "man penises".
* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Done with both the Anglophones and Japanese natives.
* EroticEating: [[http://gai-gin.com/comic_0166.shtml Gin]].
* FieryRedhead: Miki.
* FishOutOfWater
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Kitsunefoxy.
* TheGlomp: Gin does this to Pyon once or twice.
* TheIdiotFromOsaka: Referenced. Pyon is actually fairly intelligent, but definitely has a dash of CloudCuckoolander:
-->"Yaay. I eat boogers. I am boogers man."
* {{Inherently Funny Word|s}}: "Seieki! Seieki! Seieki!"
* ItTastesLikeFeet: On Japanese seafood: "Oh god it smells like a sperm whale just vomited! It ... it's like a shark's vagina!"
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Not obvious, as the comic is written in English, but Pyon apparently has one, and Gin worries that it'll be hard to understand his family's dialect.
* NightmareFetishist: Miki.
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer
* OverlyLongTongue: Gin, as seen when she eats ice-cream.
* PersonaNonGrata: [[spoiler:Gin had some problems with her visa, both in real life and in the comic.]]
* PettingZooPeople: Kitsunefoxy.
* RedHeadedHero: It's dyed, though.
* ScheduleSlip: The next strip has been delayed for quite some time.
* StockYuck: Gin hates seafood, which, since she's in ''Japan'', causes problems.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: "I see a gyouza and I don't even remember why I was upset a moment ago!"
* UnmovingPlaid
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Kitsunefoxy has a fox tail and ears, which appear to be natural, as they move depending on her emotions. Miki is a "cute little rotting zombie" who has bright green skin, fangs, and hovers in midair. People are frightened when Miki glomps them, but otherwise don't comment, and nobody mentions Foxy's ears at all.
* YaoiFangirl: Gin, to the point that she wishes Foxy wasn't lying when she (Foxy) tells her that Pyon is cheating on her with his male friend Mitchy.
* YouNoTakeCandle: Gin's Japanese starts out very clumsy and improves significantly over time.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Monica often sports a pair, and Sarah occasionally does too.
