YMMV: Manabi Straight
  • Memetic Mutation: The show's home video sales gave rise to the idea of the "Manabi Line", the number of home video sales required for an anime to "break even".
  • Nightmare Fuel: Mei's trauma-fueled perspective-tunnel imagination bit.
  • One-Scene Wonder: The lone student council member that Mikan took over for. She only appears for a single flashback scene is the first episode, but is one of the funniest parts of the episode.
  • Uncanny Valley: The Ending Theme dips right into it with the transition from anime to stop-motion.
    • Not really that Uncanny Valley; ufotable has a tradition of using clay animation in their ending sequences.
  • The Woobie: Mikan (and Mei at a certain point)
