YMMV: Kuragehime

  • Better Than Canon: The anime, vs the manga. The author saw the rough sketches the anime designer drew and wondered when she drew them; her assistants commented on how her work had improved.
  • Cargo Ship: Hanamori will do anything for his Benzs.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: In terms of the Sibling Triangle, fans like to ship Tsukimi with Kuranosuke because he likes her for the jellyfish otaku she is as opposed to Shuu, who can't even tell that "Before" and "After" Tsukimi are the same person.
    • On the other hand, in the manga Shuu does eventually realize his mistake and barely makes anything of it. He continues to court her, also doing what he can to support her clothes-making efforts.
  • Hollywood Homely: Even in her frumpy clothes, Tsukimi is still pretty adorable. Which actually may be the point, anyway.
    • Hollywood Pudgy: In addition to this. Most people probably wouldn't even realize she was meant to be chubby if not for some offhand dialogue about how she can't fit into Kuranosuke's mother's clothes and the fact that she has to wear a size large for a dress from her own brand. You can only really tell in some of the colored pin-ups—most of the time she's just as cartoonishly skinny as everyone else.
  • Memetic Mutation: AFROSEALED!
  • Moral Event Horizon: Inari slipping Shuu a mickey, molesting him, and tricking him into thinking they slept together.
  • Playing Against Type: Junichi Suwabe, who has a long list of Large Ham / Smug Snake characters under his belt, plays the quiet, serious, 30-year-old virgin Shu.
  • Squick: The scene when Tsukimi tells Kuranosuke that she thinks that Shu and Inari are sleeping with each other. The original dub makes Kuranosuke sound horrified by the thought, but the English dub makes him sound disgusted.
  • The Scrappy: Many think that Mayaya and Bamba are annoying. Especially Mayaya.
  • Unnecessary Makeover: Tsukimi is arguably a lot better looking sans makeup and flashy clothes. The same argument could likely be applied to the rest of the Nuns as well.
  • Write Who You Know: Tsukimi is almost exactly how the author was as a young girl, jellyfish obsession and all, but aged up for extra pathos.
