YMMV: Sora O Kakeru Shoujo

  • Actor Allusion: The manga version already makes one such joke. If Leopard (who's voiced by Jun Fukuyama) were human, in his own words, he'd look like Lelouch Lamperouge.
    • Taken a step further in the Sora Wo Kakeru Shoujo D manga. Near the end, Leopard's shell cracks. The next scene features this. Look familiar?
    • Bougainvillea and Mintao are voiced by the voice actresses for Arika Yumemiya and Nina Wang, whom they much resemble.
    • In fact quite a few of the characters resemble a lot the characters voiced by the same seiyuus in the Mai franshise. Kazane and Elle are authority figures friendly to the main trio who obviously go way back just like Midori and Yoko. Nina gives major Shizuru vibes while Nami is a spoiled, angstier version of Nao.
    • Nerval is played by Ghiren Zabi's voice actor. Lelouch vs Ghiren... fight!
      • "COLONY...DROP!"
      • Taking things to the next level, Lelouch is at least partially based on Char Aznable, who betrayed Ghiren. Nerval wants revenge on Leopard for betraying him.
    • Xanthippe is played by Rie Tanaka. Her hobby is listed as "singing" and her weakness is "tone-deaf".
  • Anime First: The manga spinoff(s) came later.
  • Fan Nickname: "Leloupard" for Leopard, due to his voice actor, Jun Fukuyama, who played Lelouch. "Soaring Cake Girl" for the series.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Leloupard, obviously.
  • Les Yay: Akiha and Itsuki, but there are multiple moments between several characters.
  • Like You Would Really Do It: To the point of Narm.
  • Moe: Tons of it. Imo-chan itself has enough cuteness for a whole anime series and let's not even get started on the many different type of moeness represented by the main trio of characters and quite a few of the secondary female ones.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Questionably, Nami crosses it in episode 11 when she kills one of her maids with a crowbar at the very end of the episode. It's easy to miss, but it takes her Face-Heel Turn from clinging to a mother-figure to something rather darker.
    • The maids are robots controlled by creatures like Imo-chan, so she may have merely disabled the vessel.
      • But played very straight in episode 25 when Leopard fires his Soul Shouts to the Shishidou Island on Earth, obliterating life in there.
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: Nami. Oh, dear God, Nami.
  • Wangst: Nami embodies this trope, probably at the expense of everything else in her life (including the love of her own sisters).
