YMMV / Mahoromatic

  • Memetic Mutation: "Dirty thoughts are bad!", found all over the internet and media.
  • Sudden Downer Ending: This can be very jarring for the viewer. Going along on a happy sci-fi romantic comedy, then suddenly your main character explodes, and for your prologue you find yourself in an episode of 'Maid Runner'.
  • The Scrappy:
    • This is Mahoromatic, NOT Minawamatic!
      • That's more of a cover for her real purpose. She's more of The Mole, considering the role she plays in the later parts of the second season. So more like Creator's Pet then.
      • Character development to the rescue!
    • Shikijo can be pretty irritating in a Squickier way, though YMMV on whether her single-minded antics were deconstruction.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: A song resembling "Gonna Fly Now" theme from the Rocky films plays in episode 7 of Season 2.
