Removed these from the page because none of them are sourced to provide evidence that it's more than just one person complaining, as per the Unfortunate Implications page.

  • Unfortunate Implications:
    • Chapter 38 can easily be read as a glorification of stalking and emotional blackmail in order to get what you want.
    • Though this was reversed in a later chapter, when Nakai got a bit too confident and tried to use emotional blackmail to play the two women he was obsessed with against each other. This resulted in Aoki vehemently rejecting him, and it later turned out that Kato wasn't interested either.
      • Fukuda notes that he "looks like a stalker" at one point in Chapter 38, but eventually starts to sympathize with him and becomes angry with Aoki for ignoring him despite how far he's going.
    • Takagi once talked about how girls have to appear dumb to be cute.
      • Around the same time, he also discusses voice acting as being an acceptable female ambition, and girls being meant to get married and be graceful and polite. Within the same chapter, Moritaka's father tells his mother that "men have dreams that women will never be able to understand." The last episode of the anime, however, has Moritaka's mother talking with her husband, and responding to his previous statement by saying that women also have dreams, so it could only be Moritaka's father's perspective.
