* Kintaro giving the money he received from Madame President to an elderly couple being harassed by the {{Yakuza}} in Episode 1.
* Kintaro pretending to have seduced Naoko (and not the other way around) in Episode 2 to protect her.
* Kintaro begging [[{{Yakuza}} Kogure]] to leave [[GirlNextDoor Noriko]] alone, getting his ass kicked for it, and even attempting to cover for Kogure when he is caught by Noriko in a lie as to not hurt her.
* Kintaro winning over the children as a swim teacher by having fun with them, instead of the [[DrillSergeantNasty drill-instructor like tactics]] of the head teacher, and her realization that her methods discouraged the kids from learning instead of encouraging them.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqpe1HAgs1Y music]] paired with the scene when Reiko tells Kintaro to come back to her.
* In the final scene of the anime, despite [[DidNotGetTheGirl not getting the girl(s)]] again and having to bike the hilly countryside on a hot day, Kintaro doesn't let either of these things discourage him and continues on with gusto towards his next adventure.
