YMMV / Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Kokone has a job as a delivery person. While out on her rounds one day, she pulls a gun on someone who startles her. This the first indication we have had that the setting in general and delivery work in particular is dangerous enough to require armed protection, and the gun (a Static Stun Gun, by the way) is never mentioned again. The closest we come to violence in the entire series is a woman saying hurtful things to her romantic rival.
  • Epileptic Trees: Not since Neon Genesis Evangelion has a manga kept the Epileptic Tree orchard so well-tilled, thanks to few questions being answered.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Alpha's owner sends her a present together with a coded message which needs to be delivered by a robot. In hindsight, this is obviously a ploy to make Alpha meet other androids, make new friends and come out of her isolation.
  • Les Yay:
    • Those all-female androids? They transfer data to each other by pressing their tongues together. Believe it or not, though, this actually makes a fair bit of sense in context.
    • Carried to an extreme by the relationship between Maruko and Kokone, though; see Green-Eyed Monster on the main page.
  • Mary Sue: Ultimately averted by Alpha, although in the early chapters her portrayal can be interpreted as having Sue-ish qualities.
  • One True Pairing: Alpha and Kokone, Takahiro and Makki
