YMMV: Yukari Is Free

  • Angst? What Angst?:
    • Many of the characters have lost their entire families to the Zombie Apocalypse and subsequent collapse of society in Japan, though remarkably few of them seem to be feeling much stress over it. Perhaps justified in Shimauu's case, as it has been implied that she had been so traumatized by the ordeal that she's simply blocked it out of her mind.
    • If Chiyosuke is guilt-ridden about accidentally killing Floaty, he's sure good at hiding it.
    • While she was pretty broken up over her father's death in Season 2, Rachel seems remarkably laid back about being separated from her mother between Seasons 2.5 and 3.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Zomgura's entire brief existence.
  • Cargo Ship: Fuuka/Ryougi's Lamborghini Reventon.
  • Character Rerailment: After the death of Sakakuro and an attempted suicide, Chihiro has begun taking antidepressants and seeing a psychiatrist in order to curb her yandere tendencies.
  • Crazy Awesome: Matsuda made Pot Brownies so potent, eating them allowed her to turn into a Tank and a Fighter Jet during the battle against Shin Chiyo.
  • Die for Our Ship: Poor, poor Yumi...
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Matsuda, Yui Morishita, Ren Tsutenpi, Naomi, Rei, Kasumi, and Shimauu, among others. This frequently leads to ascension.
  • God-Mode Sue:
    • Wallaby, who is one half of the physical representation of what humans refer to as 'God'... or something like that.
    • Though Vladimir does take his share of hits, his character was explicitly created to take other characters down a few pegs when the person writing him felt they were getting too powerful. Unfortunately this also means anyone facing him is screwed, because the most they can hope to achieve is a narrow escape. Victory is not an option.
  • Hollywood Homely:
    • Amber, sort of. She was originally intended to be rather plain-looking, but then other characters just kept finding her attractive...it probably helps that she's socially awkward and a massive science geek.
    • Misato once lamented the fact that both her sisters were far more attractive than her, and yet she was the only one of them who was ever able to get a boyfriend.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Nai'tyrrus', if his resurrection of Tiffany to act as a mole is any indication.
  • Memetic Molester:
    • Asagi's always watching you, Shimauu.
    • See also Elesia's Alternate Character Interpretation in the discussion and Shenanigoats threads, portraying her as a closet sexual predator who took Rei into her care so she could rape her.
  • Moe: Amber and Rei
  • Moral Event Horizon: If Daisuke hadn't crossed it by taking advantage of Ran, he definitely would have done so if his plan to deflower Rei had come to fruition.
  • MST3K Mantra: Trying to make sense of everything will drive you insane faster than the Necronomicon.
  • Nightmare Fuel: When Girl 1 and Girl 2 had their faces erased in Purgatory, they carved themselves new ones with an ice pick. The results were...not pretty.
  • Robo Ship: Chiyosuke/Floaty (a robot)
  • The Scrappy: Moto, Sakakuro, and Kyoto were all almost unanimously considered this.
  • Shipping
  • Squick: Yukari and Kyoto's relationship. See also the Kimura Gang.
  • Tear Jerker: Kagura's death in Season 3.
    • In the Discussion Threads, there are occasionally pictures of the entire cast as analyzed by certain cast members. This one, done by resident Woobie Rei Kakizaki, has a horribly tearjerking one when she gets to Kagura's Mother's picture: "Are Mom and Dad and Ran and Misato angels now too?"
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some people's reaction when things shifted away from the first season's more or less random shenanigans over to a more plot-based format during the during the second season, and again during the third when the cast began to feature more and more side characters as opposed to just sticking to the core casts from Azumanga Daioh and Yotsuba&!, as well as incorporating more serious dramatic elements.
  • Toy Ship: Miura seems to be trying to induce this with Chiyosuke and Ena.
  • Trapped by Mountain Lions: Chiyo in Purgatory and Female Gang Member in the Undisclosed Location are just two of many examples.
  • The Woobie: Torako, Steven, Sakaki, Kagura, Rei, and Ran.
