YMMV / Skip Beat!

  • Foe Yay: Kyoko and Sho have a fair amount of this when they're reunited post-breakup.
    • Also some between Sho and Reino. Kyoko even accuses Reino of having a "Sho fetish."
  • Fridge Brilliance: When Kyoko worries that Ren will cut all ties with her in Karuizawa, it seems a little too far-fetched. Until you realize that that's how she's used to being treated by those she cares about. Her mother abandoned her when she was a little girl, Fuwa Sho dropped her without a second thought after she spent years devoted to him, even Corn left without giving her a way to keep in touch (although in his case it was because he was ten years old and had to go home).
  • Les Yay: Kyoko and Moko, constantly.
    • When Kyoko and Maria see Moko feeding her “boyfriend” a French fry:
      Kyoko: I want Moko to do that to me!
    • Kyoko was incredibly... devoted to Ruriko. Kyouko even mentions at one point that she was almost able to feel love again during her time with Ruriko.
    • In Sho's PV, Kyoko has to act out an angel who has a lot of this with another angel. She perfoms a brilliant act that actually enraptures the other angel's actor, who dislikes her. How did she find the inspiration for this? By inserting Moko into the other angel's role in her mind.
    • During the party arc, Moko immediately goes to look for her present for Kyoko, in response to Ren's gift upon learning it was her birthday. All of her expressions, thoughts and mannerisms wouldn't be out of place on a jealous girlfriend. The fact that she would usually not show affection pubicly, yet grins in triumph at Ren when Kyouko is speechless about Moko's gift is just the cherry on top.
  • Magnificent Bitch: Not that Kyoko is one, but as seen in the "Natsu" drama, she can be very good at acting like one.
  • Real Women Never Wear Dresses: The first time they meet, Kanae scorns Kyouko for being "housewifey" only because she sees her sewing a doll (Kanae's unaware that the doll is a voodoo doll which Kyouko intends to use for Black Magic); and for a while she dismisses Kyouko because she didn't believe that a woman who can do every stereotypical housework could be a competent actress. It turns out that Kanae's also housewifey, in this case by necessity - and really good at it. Seeing Kyoko pissed her off because she was reminded of herself. Though her version of "housewifing" is more of a extreme sport.
    • "You made me remember the scent of detergent!"
  • Ships That Pass in the Night: Kanae and Yashiro is surprisingly popular, likely because fans like the idea of the two main leads' best friends hooking up. All this, despite the fact that the two characters have never interacted in the manga.
