Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
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).
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.
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.
