YMMV: Ben-To
  • Arc Fatigue: For Episodes 8,9, and 10,the Psycho Lesbian antics of Shiraumi(who doesn't contribute to the plot in any real manner, not even by fighting) and the twins Kyo & Kyo Sawagi, who decide to fart around with getting Sen's attention due to the long haired twin's crush on her.
  • Crazy Awesome: The Kyo sisters fight with shopping baskets and it's used as a weapon
    • The plot in general, treating shopping like a Shōnen battle
  • Cult Classic: By no means as mainstream as most anime, it has great animation and a great concept of Shonenizing an everyday occurrence like shopping in a grocery store
  • Critical Research Failure: No, the Summer Solstice is not on July 21st.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: I Gotta Turn It On!
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Episode 9. All of it.
  • I Read That As: Ben 10.
  • No Yay: Despite the fanservice, the Furo Scene with Ume and Shaga comes off as borderline rape. Mostly because it is.
    • Ditto for episode 9 when Ume practically starts molesting Oshiroi.
  • The Scrappy: Compared to the other characters, Ume is intensely unpopular among fans of the show.
  • Uncanny Valley: Any time the animators try to draw lips. The operative word here is try. It doesn't help that it's always pretty jarring anyway since the characters normally don't have lips.
  • Woolseyism: The fansubbers have been doing a very good job with this series as a whole, but then you get lines like this:
    Oshiroi: "This is fappable! This is totally fappable! Do want!"
