%%* ArcFatigue:
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Definitely Sho. Most fans hate him, seeing how he only has [[https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/skip-beat/images/9/99/Skip_Beat_Chapter_100.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20141019052930 699 votes]] compared to Ren and Kyoko who have more than 2600. But there are still fans who like him, mostly as they think he could be an okay character if he became nicer and became Kyoko's friend. It also helps that he is portrayed much more likeable in the live-action, causing the fans to like him more than in the anime or manga. Plus, he actually mellowed out a bit in later volumes, even helping Kyoko out sometimes or support her when [[spoiler: her mother denies her very existence]], making it a bit easier to like him.
* DieForOurShip: Kyoko/Ren shippers vs Kyoko/Sho shippers.
* FoeYay: Kyoko and Sho have a fair amount of this when they're reunited post-breakup, most obviously while filming the music video. The way they argue somehow makes Mimori jealous and makes the people there think that they are LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. The fact that they are childhood friends and know everything about the other only helps.
** Also some between Sho and Reino. Kyoko even accuses Reino of having a "Sho fetish."
* FridgeBrilliance: 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).
* [[HoYay Les Yay]]: Kyoko and Moko, ''constantly.''
** When Kyoko and Maria see Moko feeding her “boyfriend” a French fry:
--->Maria: [[ClingyJealousGirl I want to do that]] to [[TallDarkAndHandsome Ren]]!
--->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 [[spoiler:upon learning it was her birthday]]. All of her expressions, thoughts and mannerisms wouldn't be out of place on a [[ClingyJealousGirl 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 B|astard}}itch: Not that Kyoko is one, but as seen in the "Natsu" drama, she can be ''very'' good at acting like one.
* RealWomenDontWearDresses: The first time they meet, Kanae scorns Kyouko for being "{{housewife}}y" only because she sees her sewing a doll (Kanae's unaware that the doll is a voodoo doll which Kyouko intends to use for BlackMagic); 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 [[spoiler: Kanae's also housewifey, in this case by necessity - and really good at it. Seeing Kyoko pissed her off because [[YouAreWhatYouHate she was reminded of herself]]. Though her version of "housewifing" is more of a extreme sport]].
** [[spoiler: "You made me remember the scent of detergent!"]]
* ShipsThatPassInTheNight: 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.
