'''''Acchi Kocchi''''' (Place to Place) is a {{Seinen}} {{slice of life}} {{yonkoma}} manga that was adapted into a 13 episode anime series in April 2012.

The series centers around a group of five high school kids who live in an everyday life: the tsundere Tsumiki Miniwa, [[{{The Ditz}} ditzy]] Hime Haruno, {{mad scientist}} Mayoi Katase, taciturn Io Otonashi and goofball Sakaki Inui. Each page and episode shows the characters' everyday life and activities, sometimes making things look [[MundaneMadeAwesome real awesome]], but the story's real focus is between Tsumiki and Io, our two main characters of the series.

Administrivia/NeedsABetterDescription.

Has a character sheet that needs constructing.

----
!!Acchi Kocchi contains examples of:
* AbortedArc: In Chapter 4 of the manga, Tsumiki and Mayoi didn't know Io has a job in the Hatch Potch (the store where Sakaki, Hime, and Io works). In the anime, the arc was never used to explain how Io got his job.
* TheAce: Tsumiki and Io.
* ACupAngst: Tsumiki. Don't say anything about it. Sakaki and Mayoi learned this the ''hard'' way.
* ActionGirl: Tsumiki, as if it wasn't obvious already.
** The only female lead who isn't one is Hime.
* AdaptationDistillation: The anime is condensed into a 13-episode series. The manga is at least 30 chapters short.
* {{Adorkable}}: Almost every character in the series has this vibe, but especially Tsumiki.
* AffectionateGestureToTheHead: Io has a habit of petting Tsumiki whenever her head gets in range. One manga chapter reveals that most of the time he isn't even aware he's doing it.
* AlwaysSecondBest: Sakaki's dynamic with Io. He's the only character who actively tries to one-up the resident [[ParodySue Parody Stu]] and they're actually shown to be evenly matched whenever Sakaki isn't getting horribly maimed.
* AmusingInjuries: Usually with [[IronButtMonkey Sakaki]] as the target but Mayoi and Io get their turns too.
* AnimalMotif: If it wasn't obvious enough, cats. Tsumiki spends half her screentime sprouting cat ears, Saki has nekomimi-shaped air vents, and Mayoi has a permanent cat smile.
* ArcWelding: The anime tends to merge certain storylines together and condenses a few storylines that are usually related.
* ArtEvolution: The manga's artwork becomes progressively better in each chapter.
* BadassAdorable[=/=]CuteBruiser: Tsumiki.
* BearsAreBadNews: Mayoi decided to run around scaring people in a bear costume, during the first segment of Episode 10.
* BerserkButton: Hime doesn't like being teased about her weight. Just ask Sakaki (onion squirted in eyes) and Mayoi (launched out of the cabin door).
** Mayoi also shares the same button as Hime as she assists Hime in spraying Sakaki in the eyes with onions. Also when she's apparently heavy when Tsumiki's light-weight literally lifts her off the ground.
** Don't ever tease Tsumiki regarding Io. She's kick you into the sky, and look adorable doing it.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Tsumiki with Io share calm, laid-back demeanor. On opposite site Sakaki and Mayoi are both hyperactive and like to tease others.
* BlindingBangs: Mayoi.
* BrownBagMask: Sakaki sports one in Episode 10, to join a [[BearsAreBadNews bear suit]] clad Mayoi in scaring Kikue-sensei.
* BrickJoke: Tsumiki's use of her Superhuman strength and power, which ends in hilarious results.
* ButtMonkey: Mayoi, Sakaki and Kyouya.
** IronButtmonkey: Mayoi takes a frisbee to the ''neck'' and gets back up a few seconds later. Sakaki gets blasted by fireworks and shown later to be unharmed.
* CallBack: During the Home Econs skit Mayoi learns that [[EyeScream onion juice isn't good for eyes]]. Later during the BeachEpisode she passes the knowledge on to Sakaki... [[RuleOfFunny the obvious way]].
* CannotSpitItOut: Tsumiki towards Io.
* CatGirl: Tsumiki often [[SproutingEars sprouts]] cat ears. Also Mayoi to a certain extent with her CatSmile and [[VerbalTic -Nya]].
* CatSmile: Mayoi's face has this [[PerpetualSmiler perpetually]].
* CharacterTics: Hime's {{nosebleed}}s, Tsumiki's emerging cat ears, and Io's pencil twirling.
** Io's pencil twirling skills are so badass he can actually ''deflect snowballs'' with them.
* ChasteHero: Io, played completely straight.
* ChristmasEpisode: Episode 10-B.
* ChuckingChalk: Kikue-sensei throws a piece of chalk at Io's head for twirling his pen at high speeds. [[RuleOfFunny Somehow]], it curves to hit Mayoi instead.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Tsumiki. Moreso in the manga.
* CloudCuckooLander: Sakaki's thought process is rather strange. Mayoi has this in spades as well.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Io and Tsumiki to Sakaki and Mayoi respectively.
* CluelessChickMagnet: Io. Sakaki himself in the manga as well to an extent.
* TheComicallySerious: Io.
* CoolBigSis: Miiko, Sakaki's elder sister.
* CovertPervert: Given how often the girls are prone to nosebleeds. Highlighted in Episode 6-B, when all they can remember from the study meet is [[spoiler:the scent of Io's shirt]].
* CrazyPrepared: Mayoi in Chapter 9, lampshaded by Io.
* CrushBlush[=/=]LuminescentBlush: Tsumiki, and Io on occasion.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Hime.
* CuteKitten: Plenty of them. Tsumiki is very close to be one as well.
** She actually meows in Episode 7, when Io is blow drying her hair.
** In Episode 8, she has so much feline vibe that the goldfish are scared of her.
* DeadpanSnarker: Tsumiki on occasions.
* TheDitz: Hime.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: All the voice actors (mostly the main characters) do the opening song. Rumi Ookubo does the ending song.
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: Tsumiki can occasionally display a rather poor grasp on her superhuman strength (compared to the other characters).
* EngagingConversation: [[SupremeChef Io's]] [[ImpossiblyDeliciousFood cooking]] in the Episode 3 elicits this reaction from the girls.
* EpicFail: Sakaki's attempt at the "longer your sparkler stays on, the more popular you are" game. His sparkler fell the moment he lit it.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: The main couple. In Chapter 44 of the manga, the characters try out a magazine compatibility test and learn the two are very compatible. Their reaction basically amounts to "Well, duh."
* {{Expy}}:
** Tsumiki would be Konata from ''Manga/LuckyStar'' if the latter was a SmittenTeenageGirl and not a total {{otaku}}.
** Hime shares traits with Tsukasa -- the friendly appearance, the ditzy, feminine personality and [[Creator/KaoriFukuhara the voice talent]] say so.
* EyeScream: PlayedForLaughs twice, with Kana to Mayoi by accident by spraying her eyes with onions, and Mayoi and Hime spraying Sakaki's eyes when he remarks that girls do not like the sound trains make while driving on the railroad.
* FailuresOnIce: Mayoi made two of the biggest {{Epic Fail}}s in Episode 13: landing on her face, and elbowing Sakaki by accident.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: But not Mayoi.
* FestivalEpisode: Episode 8-B.
* FirstNameBasis: Tsumiki to Io and vice versa. And without honorifics, at that!
* FlatCharacter: All of them. [[TropesAreTools Nearly all of the gags play off their exaggerated personalities and traits.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Io, especially to cats.
** In the GoldfishScoopingGame in Episode 8, goldfish actually jump into Io's bowl of their own volition.
* FuroScene: Averted. In Episode 7, Sakaki considers peeking at the girls bathing; lampshading it with his reasoning being it often happens in media. Io strongly advises against it.
* GadgeteerGenius: Mayoi.
* GamerChick: Tsumiki and Mayoi.
* [[spoiler:GeckoEnding: Due to the manga still going on at this point, and anime has ended with 12 episodes.]]
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Tsumiki has these pop up (with Hime as her Angel and Mayoi as her Devil) when debating whether to go through Io's stuff.
* GratuitousEnglish: Mayoi's Snowball Bazooka delivers status messages and prompts in English. Her speech pattern is full of it as well.
* GroinAttack: By accident from Mayoi to Sakaki on Chapter 30.
* HammerSpace: Mayoi somehow takes a lifebuoy out from her overalls in the cabin episode. For some reason.
* HelloNurse: Io is a rare male example.
* HiddenBuxom: [[spoiler: Mayoi.]]
* HighPressureBlood[=/=]BloodyHilarious: PlayedForLaughs with Tsumiki and Hime. Hime is the ''QUEEN'' of this trope.
* HonestAxe: Io tries this with Sakaki, but fails when the real one shows up.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Io and Tsumiki.
** Sakaki and Mayoi as well. Guys generally seem to be tall and lanky in this anime while girls of the same age tend to be petite.
* IAteWhat: Io and Sakaki do ''not'' react well to learning that the chocolate Mayoi gave them contained [[spoiler: frog meat]].
* IdiotHair: Tsumiki and Io.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Io, especially the Cabin episode when he uses sticks to catch fish, thinking it's impossible. Cue the fishes floating dead in the water.
** Taken UpToEleven later on, where he repeatedly snipes ''mosquitoes'' with toothpicks.
* LethalChef: Mayoi. Thankfully, no one tried her... whatever the hell it is that she made out of raw eggs in the cooking episode.
* [[ImagineSpot Imagination Spots]]: Each character has one, but Tsumiki's ''always'' has to do with Io.
* LapPillow: Tsumiki provides one for a snoozing Io in Episode 7.
* LargeHam: Mayoi and Sakaki.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: How Io views Miiko.
* MadScientist: Mayoi, in spades. She even does an EvilLaugh when she was making her chocolate in the secondary Valentine's Day episode.
* MadeOfIron: Kana plows through the wooden trap made by Mayoi. Poor Hime isn't.
* [[spoiler:MaybeEverAfter: At this time, the anime's ending doesn't exactly resolve the question of]] Io and Tsumiki's relationship. The manga may have.
** On the other hand, the anime consistently portrays Io being closer to Tsumiki (they end most episodes alone with each other, for one thing) than the other girls and the general absence of CharacterDevelopment means that no one else gets closer to him.
* {{Megane}}: Io. Specifically StoicSpectacles.
* MomentKiller: Cue MoodWhiplash below when Tsumiki has her moments with Io.
* MoodWhiplash: Whenever Tsumiki's at the moment, she often goes berserk. The other characters ''especially'' does this when Tsumiki's at her moments with Io.
** Episode 13-A and Chapter 19 involve a sad moment when Tsumiki fails to give Io her chocolate when it's raining, but heartwarmingly, he accepts it anyway. Then he rubs her face mainly for her to not get sick (in the case in the manga, it happened once). Cue {{Nosebleed}}.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Air hockey, snowball fights, kick the can, volleyball. Pretty much any game they play.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Hime in particular.
** Tsumiki's also up there. Often, whenever Io does something, it becomes a double knock-out with the two girls face-down in a pool of their own blood.
** Taken UpToEleven at the end of Episode 4 where Io causes all the girls in his classroom (sans Mayoi) to go down via nosebleed.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Io will frequently get caught up in whatever competition Sakaki starts, assuming they aren't on the same side.
* ObliviousToLove: Io. More emphasized, even Chapter 4 when he doesn't know what Miiko (Sakaki's older sister) is talking about when she specifically says being an "Ally to a maiden in love".
** [[spoiler: Finally seems to have caught on, during the end of Episode 11.]]
** Kyouya has as much as a poor grasp to romance as Io, but unlike Io, Kyouya apparently does not know the meaning to give gifts to others as opposed to Io. Which is ironic actually. Also lampshaded by Kyouya regarding the subject.
* {{Odango}}: Mayoi.
* OhCrap: Several things will happen if you tease Tsumiki, or if you unintentionally piss her off, to the point she'll break something in half. Literally.
* OverlyLongGag: The girls' nosebleeds. Particularly in the episodes/chapters involving Tsumiki waking Io up... by nosebleed.
* [[ParodySue Parody Stu]]: Io's particular character trait is being irresistible to girls (and clueless about it) and incredibly competent in everything the cast has to do (except technology which is Mayoi's field) but it's usually (and [[TropesAreTools effectively]]) PlayedForLaughs against Sakaki failing miserably.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Don't let Tsumiki's height fool you.
* {{Pun}}: Many of the jokes in both versions utilize Japanese wordplay, a staple of the 4koma genre.
* TheQuietOne: Tsumiki.
* RapunzelHair: Tsumiki.
* RedStringOfFate: Io and Tsumiki in the ending theme. Symbolized by a red scarf.
* {{Roboteching}}: Sakaki proves to be a firework magnet.
* SchoolFestival: Episode 9.
* [[SexySantaDress Sexy Santa Suit]]: The ladies sure didn't mind Io in a Santa suit, during Episode 10.
* ShipperOnDeck: Everyone (including Miiko) towards Tsumiki and Io.
* ShipTease: Mayoi does this to Tsumiki ''all the time''. Sakaki does this sometimes as well with Mayoi. Go too far, you know what happens next.
* ShoutOut:
** Tsumiki pulled a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgSAOxwr0xE parrying move]] against [[Franchise/StreetFighter Xia-Li's Super Move]], then finished it off with a Shun Goku Satsu Super Move.
*** This is also a shout-out to Daigo Umehara's comeback victory against Justin Wong in EVO 2004.
** Mayoi's snowball launcher is also one, with its voice and her use of [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha "Zenryoku zenkai!"]]. It's quoted again in Episode 5.
** In Episode 5/Chapter 29, Mayoi talks about [[Film/ThreeHundred 300 Spartans]] who dines in hell (complete with their battlecry).
** Sakaki refer to the frogs in the school pool as "[[Manga/SgtFrog Sergeants]]" during Episode 6.
** He does it again in Episode 12 when he tells Mayoi he'll draw eyes on her buns and call her Sergeant if she put frog in her chocolates again.
** Episode 8 has [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial a bike flying against the moon]], along with speaking about aliens.
** After neko Tsumiki "defeats" Mayomancer (Mayoi as a witch in a shared dream), a victory fanfare suspiciously sounds like the one from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''.
** Chapter 41 has a [[Franchise/MetalGear snake hiding inside a cardboard box]], Mayoi saying "[[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Search and Destroy]]", and Sakaki saying [[Film/HouseOfWax "Shall I turn you into a doll?"]]
* SingleTargetSexuality: ...Take a wild guess.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Mayoi is always on the receiving end of bad things.
* SliceOfLife
* ShrinkingViolet: Hime, but not painfully shy, but more into not get into situations her friends put her through.
* SourceMusic: In Episode 8 of the anime Io plays the soundtrack for one scene transition on a keyboard ''while falling asleep''.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: Io could deflect snowballs by twirling ''chopsticks''.
* StalkerWithACrush: Mayoi correctly guesses this when Tsumiki's {{Contrived Coincidence}}s was systematic to meet with Io. She wasn't far off.
* SuperStrength: Tsumiki, in Episode 3, is able to lift an ''enormous'' snowball, and throw it at least several feet into the air.
* TouchOfDeath: Despite Sakaki's IronButtMonkey status Io can disable him with a light tap. However, this may be due to MinorInjuryOverreaction by the former.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The characters tend to discuss a lot the fact that Hime (whose name means "princess") is very feminine and acts cutely, while Mayoi is the exact opposite.
* {{Tsundere}}: Tsumiki, who's both types in general and gets lampshaded when she utters a stereotypical line of the archetype in Episode 1 of the anime. It's even flat-out stated in the manga. In addition, Tsumiki becomes Type A whenever being teased by Io or embarassed.
** Even Kyouya has his tsundere moment in Episode 12.
* UnwantedHarem: Io, however since he's completely ObliviousToLove in this regard, he wouldn't notice. And Tsumiki goes ClingyJealousGirl mode when girls are thinking about him, touching him, or considering going out with him.
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: Io, and it's near deadly to Tsumiki and Hime.
** Not even Mayoi is immune. Io's caring smile and occasional charming words basically mean he has a blast radius of female {{Nosebleed}}s.
* VerbalTic: Interestingly used. Tsumiki has a recurring cat motif but hardly ever uses cat onomatopoeia when it's not being invoked. Mayoi on the other hand tends to throw a 'Nya' into every other sentence.
* WouldHitAGirl: Io, of all people, did this to Mayoi, when she got distracted by video games during their study session in Io's room. Io is shown to be clearly irked afterwards.
** He also pinches Mayoi's cheeks in irritation when she admits that she was not able to bring her notes.
** Though it's justified in the fact that the whole idea to have a study session in Io's room was all Mayoi's idea.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Let's check:
** Tsumiki: Literally blue.
** Hime: Brown.
** Mayoi: Orange.
** Sakaki and Miiko: Blond.
** Kana: Green.
** Saki: Blond.
** Kikue-sensei: Greyish-light-blue hair.
