* CensorBox: Used to cover Retsuko's eyes in Series 2 when an article is released about her and Tadano. Like last time she was censored to "conceal" her identity in Series 1, almost everyone that knows her ''immediately'' recognises her due to the even lazier job the photographer did at concealing Retsuko's identity.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: As much as Ton dislikes Retsuko, he has some moral standards, and does often give her genuinely meaningful life advice. Ton also keeps Retsuko and [[spoiler: Tadano's relationship a secret after he learns of it at a corporate golf retreat/ meeting, as even he wouldn't sink as low as to ruin her love life and publicly out her and Tadano's dating life.]]

* FreudianExcuse: Ton tells Retsuko that his own bosses abused their power and ground him down when he was starting out, and he also implies that he has never been in a romantic relationship, though it's not clear if that contributed to his asshole behavior or was a result of it.

Added DiffLines:

* RandomSpeciesOffspring: A strange {{Implied}} example. Every onscreen couple that has children is same-species, with children to match. However, [[spoiler: when Retsuko and Tadano discuss the prospect of having children, it's never brought up that he's a donkey and she's a red panda.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: In Season 2, Washimi and Gori get into a big fight over their views of marriage that lasts until the Season Finale. Washimi was married for three months, decides that marriage is not for her, and she immediately assumes that Gori isn't made for marriage either. On the other hand, Gori dismisses Washimi as being biased by her own bad experience, and she has no right to rule out marriage for everyone. While they agreed that they wouldn't apologize to each other for their views, both decide to put the fight on pause to support Retsuko.

Strangely the only character whose full name is known is Natsuko Yokosawa, a minor character in the shorts and only a background character in the series.

Added DiffLines:

* SeldomSeenSpecies: The show has quite a lot of animals that are obscure or uncommonly seen in animation. These animals include red panda, fennec fox, spotted hyena, maned wolf, Komodo dragon, secretary bird, caracal, Pallas's cat, capybara, axolotl, and mandrill.

Added DiffLines:

* VisibleSigh: When Retsuko is feeling stressed about her arranged meeting Fenneko notes that her sighs are colored purple.


* BookEnds: The season starts with Retsuko starting her new job with high expectations and optimism. She jumps down a short flight of stairs but misses the landing and sprains her ankle. In the last episode her expectations are more grounded in reality and reasonably optimistic. When she makes the same jump, she lands it.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Season 2 ends with Retsuko and Tadano breaking up. They are both in tears over it, however they still part amicably and both have friends comforting them.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: When Tadano takes Retsuko out for ramen, he flies her to Hokkaido and back in the same night. Retsuko, shocked by it all, thinks it was all a dream until she sees the receipt (which stated it was in Hokkaido). Unlike last time she wasn't drunk, but implied to have just blanked out after Tadano started spouting his world philosophy.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Washimi is seen as the strongest and most stoic woman in the entire company, and backs it up by intimidating her own boss from doing stupid things. However she can be just as prone to shenanigans like the rest of them, especially when around Gori. Gori even notes that she wiggles her tail uncontrollably whenever she's really happy, but only her closest friends know this. [[spoiler: It turns out that she was married before, and divoriced a scant 4 months later. This is actually why she has a more pessimistic view of love and marriage than Gori.]]


** Even minor comic-relief characters are subject to this. [[GossipyHens Kabae]], for example, is absent for much of the final episode of series 1, on account of being arrested for espionage, of all things (the show never specifies much else about it). In series 2, [[spoiler:her motherly side to her personality, and dealing with three unruly children becomes how she's able to calm Anai down, after even big bad boss Ton had cowed to Anai.]]

In addition, her gossipy nature turned out to be ''extremely useful'' in digging up info about Retsuko's weird date with Tadano, on par with Fenneko's sluthing ability.]]


* AdultFear: For all the FunnyAnimals and humor that makes it look like a kids show, the terror of someone like Retsuko losing their job is played depressingly straight.

** After it got out that Retsuko was dating Tadano, she spends a few days away from work to get away from the gossip. Naturally her friends are worried about her well being. [[spoiler: Not at all helped by the fact that Tadano is actively encouraging her to stay with him in his limo (implied to be where he actually lives) instead of going out or seeing her friends. The end result is that it looks like he's kidnapped her.]]
