* BetterOnDVD: See ShoutOut and FreezeFrameBonus on the main page.
** [[Creator/NozomiEntertainment Right Stuf]] did their best to invoke this, putting so much effort into making their version a 1:1 adaptation of the Japanese (yes, even re-filming the live-action bits with the English voice actors). They also wanted to ensure the subtitles translated ''everything'' which means the first DVD can actually ''overload'' older players due to how much information it has to process at once.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** "Whoever screwed up my beautiful (high school) entrance must be an ugly and depressing geek." Yukino got one part of that unflattering description right.
** [[spoiler:Yukino and Arima's ''relationship'' for most of the manga after a flashback during the worst of Arima's angst and anger period.]]
* HoYay:
** Arima and Asaba have their moments...
** Arima and Kazuma too. To the extent that sometimes they blush at each other.
* SuperlativeDubbing: There are some dub aficionados who have named this series as among the greatest English dubs ever recorded. Whether one agrees with that or not, it's certainly some of the best acting Creator/VeronicaTaylor has ever turned in.
* TheWoobie:
** Souichirou would be one of the best candidates for the Anime & Manga entry. See the NightmareFuel page for an insight into just how severe a case he is.
** Tsubasa's backstory and the reason/s she was a ClingyJealousGirl also make her this, at least until halfway through the manga (in a heartwarming way).
