Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
Crucified Hero Shot: Parodied in the scene in which Poemi knocks down the cross in which her father (and mother. And robot dog) is crucified, leading her to repeat the scene with the usual uber-dramatic sound effects. Plus, this takes place Against the Setting Sun.
D-Cup Distress: The main reason Shii wanted Poemi to live with the Aasu? Because she needed a place to rest her enormous knockers. It is later revealed that she would use Poemi's magic to make her boobs much smaller.
Death Is Cheap: Nabeshin and Kumi-Kumi come back to life thanks to Kumi-Kumi's acupuncture skills.
DVD Commentary: The ADV release came with one, touted as the "world's first 5.1 surround sound commentary". There was also a behind-the-scenes video recording the madness, with the voice actors in multiple booths and often talking over each other.
Enjo Kosai: Poemi used her usual subtlety to deal with a Gyaru on a subsidized date
Expy: Shii Aasu, of Hyatt from Excel Saga, and probably Futaba as well, who looks and acts a lot like an exaggerated version of Tomoyo from Cardcaptor Sakura.
Poemi: I'm going to work hard and be in a show like EVA! I'm going to become like Ms. Mitsuishi!
Mitsuishi: I think that may be a tad bit impossible for you, Yumiko
Large Ham: Poemi is the main one, although there's plenty of ham throughout the cast.
This might be the hammiest of all the hammy anime.
Late for School: Played straight in one instance, but inverted in another where Poemi leaves at four o'clock in the morning and still hurries toward school. She arrives so early she falls asleep in class the next day.
Motor Mouth: Poemi may beat even Excel at this category.
No Fourth Wall: Not so much a case of breaking the fourth wall as a case of never even considering building one. Considering Poemi's tendency to refer to herself with the name of her real-life voice actress and to Nabeshin as the director, she seems to be having trouble with other walls besides the fourth.
No Indoor Voice: Poemi. Between that and the Motor Mouth, Poemi's English V.A. remarked that she blew out her voice on the first day of recording.
Oblivious to Love: Parodied: K is oblivious to Poemi's crush on him, despite the fact that she's about as easy to ignore as a stampedingrhino, and Poemi is in turn oblivious to Futaba's crush on her, despite the fact that Futaba makes no attempt to hide her feelings and even gets Poemi naked and into bed with her at one point.
Say My Name: Futaba and Poemi get a really long series of these towards the end of the second episode.
Schoolgirl Lesbians: Parodied by Futaba, whose inexplicable lust for Poemi could only be more obvious if she wore a neon sign reading "TAKE ME, I'M YOURS". Poemi still doesn't notice, though, despite the fact that Futaba actually does get her between the sheets on at least one occasion. Talk about oblivious.
Spell My Name with an "S": The article page itself is "Puni Puni Poemi". The English title is "Puni Puni Poemy". The subtitles justify this as when she is normal, her name is Poemi Watanabe. When she transforms, she becomes Puni Puni Poemy.
Standing in the Hall: Lampshade hung when Poemi complains about the punishment being outdated in modern Japanese schools
Theme Naming: Each of the Aasu sisters' given names is derived from a number from one to seven, starting with the youngest one — which means their parents were counting down. What would have happened had they reached zero?
Zero is no problem: just call her "Rei". -1, on the other hand...
Tomato in the Mirror: K finds out that he's a tentacle monster alien. Never mind that he lives with his parents, who are obviously tentacle monster aliens. Or that apparently his limbs are all fake and that they pop off easily to reveal tentacles. Or that in one scene he goes to school riding a UFO.
Transformation Sequence: Parodied with a transformation involving a dead fish which automatically strips Poemi naked — except for her socks, which she has to remove manually before she can take her magical form.
Well some powers are useful, they are only worthless because they are on a team where everybody only has defensive abilities. If they were on a team with some offensive capabilities, or learned other skills, they wouldn't be quite so worthless.
Whip It Good: Itsue Aasu, who is the only one of the Aasu sisters with a useful ability. Justified because she is a dominatrix.
Widget Series: The fact that this one was forgotten is kind of mind-blowing...
