* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Quite a few people mis-labeled it as {{Shojo}}, such as [[http://www.amazon.com/Strawberry-Marshmallow-Cute-Does-Vol/dp/B000F3AAMK Amazon.com]] They even go so far as to say that it's obviously targeted at adolescent girls and that older viewers will find it cloying.

** In the same episode, Miu is hit on the nose with a rubber band, is kneed in the shin, then gets dizzy and falls flat on her face, all within two pages. The other girls think it's funny.
--> '''Chika:''' Miu! Come to my arms!
--> '''Miu:''' Chika?! You do love me, after all! ''*Starts running*'' Chika! I love you too! ''*Splat*''

** NoYay: Occasionally Nobue's CutenessProximity manifests in creepy ways, like staring at Ana in the bath or trying to kiss Matsuri. Chika tries to keep her sister from doing anything she might regret, while Miu just cracks jokes about it.
* {{Memetic Mutation}}: Ana's facial expression (Google "gununu" for details) has become a popular visual meme.
** MemeticMolester: Nobue. Sometimes her affection for Ana and Matsuri seems not entirely innocent.
