Playing With / What Do You Mean, It's Not for Little Girls?

Basic Trope: This looks like a perfectly innocuous work clearly intended for little girls... NOT!!
  • Straight: Troper Girls looks like a standard Slice of Life Moe Anime, with its cutesy art-style, catchy theme song and (generically) cute characters. In reality, it's a surprisingly serious drama about maturity and the harsh way that leads to it.
  • Exaggerated: The Show looks like a Chick Flick, but it's Rated M for Manly.
  • Downplayed: Troper Girls is aimed for adult males but besides for few Les Yay scenes, it's okay for kids to watch it.
  • Justified: ???
  • Inverted: Troper Girls is aimed for little girls, but its action scenes and Electric Guitar music appeal more to boys.
  • Subverted: ???
  • Double Subverted: ???
  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: ???
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed:
    • Executives Cancel the show because it doesn't match target audience.
    • The show is reformatted to appeal to the little girls, something that alienates the original intended audience, and the girls too, because no it isn't what they liked in the first place.
