* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Oh, yeah. [[BetterThanItSounds But according to the consensus...]]
* GrowingTheBeard: Started as a parody of Death Note with fapping. Ended as a story about growing up.
** [[ComingOfAgeStory "Coming" of Age]] never sounded so dirty.
* TheWoobie: Kitahara, and Kurosawa himself after [[spoiler: he confesses his misdeeds, and from then on, nearly every student seems intent on belitting/bullying/beating him.]]
** JerkassWoobie: Kitahara is very much this, with the "jerkass" part only getting worse with time as she asks Kurosawa to "punish" girls for increasingly petty reasons, from harassing and tormenting her to ''talking to her in a slightly arrogant tone''.
