* PettingZooPeople: Most of the inhabitants of the Wonder Planet are very much anthropomorphic.


* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: The Black Crystal is ultimately behind ''everything'' bad that happens throughout both seasons and the backstory, from the original weakening of the Blessing of the Sun to Boomo's corruption to Blessing's second weakening to the EvilChancellor's goal of WorldDomination to Bright's FaceHeelTurn ''AND'' to the shenanigans pulled by the Black Planet Academy. Every single bit of it is ultimately the Black Crystal's fault.]]

Fine and Rein are fraternal [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins twins]] who are also [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princesses]] of the Sunny Kingdom, one of the seven kingdoms of the Wonder Planet, a hollow planet with a floating sun in the middle. They also happen to be [[InformedAbility "the most un-Princesslike Princesses ever"]]. Fine (the red-haired one) is a {{Tomboy}} with a love of [[BigEater sweet things]] while Rein (the blue-haired one) is a GenkiGirl who loves cute things but gets [[LoveMakesYouCrazy a little insane when it comes to romance]].

''Fushigiboshi no Futagohime'' ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Twin Princess of [sic] Wonder Planet"]]) is a {{shoujo}} MagicalGirl series from the director of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', Junichi Sato. Initially a [[http://futagohime.jp/original concept with its own interactive webpage]] by BIRTHDAY (also known for their ''VideoGame/DaikaijuuMonogatari'' games), Hal Film Maker took the idea and adapted it into an anime, which began in April of 2005.

It later got a second series, ''Fushigiboshi No Futagohime Gyu!'', in which Fine and Rein get sent to [[BoardingSchool Princess School]] in order to receive a certification that will allow them to become Queens. During the orientation of new students, they are presented with a legendary bell that will only ring when a certain person, [[TheChosenOne destined to become the "Universal Princess"]] touches it. Until this time, the bell has never rung until Fine and Rein touch it, transforming them into [[FrillyUpgrade newer, frillier, poofier dresses]]. Meanwhile, a strange dark entity has begun to possess people all over campus, causing them to descend into irreversible depression. Unlike the previous series, it follows a standard MonsterOfTheWeek format and delves into MagicalGirlWarrior themes instead of the CuteWitch style it originally had (presumably due to the success of a similar format in the second half of the original series). Part of the reason of why it was different was because Junichi Sato left in the beginning of its run, most likely due to CreativeDifferences. [[BrokenBase Some cite the sequel as something that should have never existed]]

* OnePersonBirthdayParty: Though not a birthday but used in a similar context, in Bright spends an entire episode preparing for a lavish party to celebrate becoming the king after taking over the Wonder Planet. While decorating, he imagines his {{Love Interest|s}} Fine showing up. Fine does show up to talk some sense into him but is repulsed [[spoiler:by his BrainwashedAndCrazy nature]]. She's later saved by her friends, including Rein, a {{Fangirl}} of Bright, and Bright's sister, Altezza, both who are shocked at his behavior as well. They leave him all alone while he celebrates sadly to himself.

The same treatment is given to Rarau and Yayan, the vice principal's assistants, who seem to be [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of Rau and Yan, Roman's mooks, in the first series.

** Milro has an interesting case since her name was spelled "Mirlo" in the first [[AllThereInTheManual character fanbook]], but "Milro" in episode 19 and in the second character fanbook. One has to wonder if "Mirlo" was a typo or if TheyJustDidntCare about the proper romanization of her name. Last, some fansubs write her name out by her literal Japanese pronunciation, "Miruro", but it's not {{Word of God}} so it has less validity than her other names. The fansubs romanized Truth's name as "Toulouse" and Altezza's as "Altessa" before the character fanbook came out with the official romanizations. Some people still refer to the characters by their fansub names.
