Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi
Cliché Storm: The amount of tropes played straight is a little overbearing at times.
Covered Up: The soundtrack features a cover of "Joining A Fan Club", by originally by Puffy songwriter/producer Andy Sturmer's early-1990s band Jellyfish.
Ear Worm: The background tunes will stick in your head for days on end.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Julie is very popular for a character who only appeared in one episode.
Funny Moment: "I'M MISSING BUNNY HUGGLES! AAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!"
Germans Love David Hasselhoff: An Americanized show about two Japanese Pop Stars has a very popular Hispanic dub. Predictably, the show was more popular in Japan than America.
Les Yay: To the point where the real life Ami and Yumi actually thought the show depicted them as a lesbian couple.
Moe: Ami and Yumi are this. Atchan and Julie can also count.
Nightmare Fuel: A live action segment featuring a flabby man in a loincloth dancing. The cartoon had some cringes too.
Tastes Like Diabetes: The color scheme and overall "cuteness" of the series is likely to turn away a lot of viewers.
Toy Ship: Yumi and Atchan.
True Art Is Incomprehensible: "Treasure Map"/"Artist Ami"
Viewer Gender Confusion: Does anyone else think Yumi looks like a boy?
The Woobie: Both Ami and Yumi can be this at times. Episodes like "In the Cards" and "House Unkeeping" are seen as their most woobie-ish moments.
Jerkass Woobie: Kaz is this when he has to put up with Jang Keng and Tekirai (Ami and Yumi's pet kittens).
