Instead, she does not transform until Episode 49 (of 51) in time [[spoiler:to fight the GreaterScopeVillain]], and was being [[spoiler:set up as the successor]].

* UsefulNotes/JapaneseEducationSystem: Subverted - Morisoba-East primary school looks like an ordinary Japanese primary school, but when [[spoiler:Rei's parents send congratulations for promoting up a school year]], we learn its school year ends in Summer. It explains why they are always Year 4 Class 3 despite having passed April during the series run.

Added DiffLines:

* FreeRangeChildren: Both Agedama and Ibuki are allowed to roam all over town, and even Kodama seems allowed quite a bit of freedom for his age.


* LimitedWardrobe: Ibuki's outfit is always a pink blouse, green tie, and a miniskirt in darker pink. Still, she's a bit luckier than the other two, since at least she has long and short sleeved blouses and a cardigan that she wears from mid November to mid July. Agedama and Rei each have ''one'' everyday outfit (Orange+Yellow shortsleeve polo shirt with shorts and pink longsleeve sailor blouse with dark blue kerchief tight mini skirt, respectively).

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Raizo Kuki has spent most of the series being an overdoting grandparent to Rei, never doubting her self-serving reports. But even he was shocked when Rei thanks him for his latest "education reform" initiative (it involves [[spoiler:absolutely no reading or writing for classes]]), believing it was to give her an academic leg up by stopping the ''rest'' of her class from studying properly. He [[spoiler:doesn't abort his plan or make huge changes in his attitude to Rei]], but the first time he completely overrode Rei's wishes, the first time he made her playact a Good Guy role, his attempt to teach her fiscal responsibility and another attempt to give her practice at being a ruler ''all'' postdate this event. When the last [[spoiler:went south, he (for once) didn't believe Rei's excuses either.]]


* {{Deuteragonist}}: Ibuki might be the heroine, but Rei Kuki is the undisputed holder of this. Not only does she have a ''huge'' amount of screentime, she has a [[FreudianExcuse backstory]], the episodes often have her segments go ''first'' and the story definitely won't exist, even in a much-altered form, without her. Heck, without the title and OP, viewers may reasonably conclude ''she'' is TheProtagonist.


* DamselInDistress: Ibuki Heike was this at first, [[spoiler:until she got superpowers of her own and became "Wonder Ibuki" shortly after she found out about Agedama's secret]].

to:

* DamselInDistress: Ibuki Heike was ** No one realizes that [[PaperThinDisguise Omyomiko]] is Rei either - if anything, this at first, [[spoiler:until she got superpowers of her own is more egregious because Omyomiko is unprofessional and became "Wonder Ibuki" shortly after she found out about Agedama's secret]].will use the Monsters to get back at Rei's grudges. No one makes the connection anyway.


* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Ibuki Heike doesn't get to transform until Episode 49, but the show was quietly building up to it. Some precursors masquerade as [[NotSoEpisodic one-offs]] and others are more subtle. Agedama remembers five, but there were more:
** Episode 2 is a subtle one. Ibuki says she is not very good at marathon [[spoiler:and for ''most'' of the race was indeed in the middle/back of the pack. Then she sees Agedama working his way back up after losing time on a MonsterOfTheWeek. A few minutes later]] she meets up at the goal with Agedama as if it was the most natural thing in the world, ahead of [[spoiler:all but 5 other people - Rei (flagrantely carried part of the way), her [[InstantFanClub lackeys]] (we can infer they took a shortcut back) and Agedama (alien). Onscreen, Agedama accelerated hard to work back up, and it wasn't effortless for him. Offscreen, Ibuki had the reserves for nearly as high an acceleration without apparent strain.]]
** Episode 3: Tall stacks of wastepaper are heavy, such that even Agedama struggles to walk with them. Ibuki easily walks around and even dashes with a similarly sized stack. This starts a pattern where Ibuki never seems to really strain, whether it is carrying her little brother Kodama (about half her weight) or running with the teachers.
** Episode 4: Ibuki can create a small ki-blast [[spoiler:when playing Rock Papers Scissors]].
** Episode 6: She significantly outdoes Rei (who, despite her cheating, is a capable athlete) and Agedama in ''tobibako'' (box vaulting).
** Episode 10: She uproots a mailbox and hits Agedama with it.
** Episode 11: She shoves a MonsterOfTheWeek so hard it flies off screen.
** Episode 12: She kicks Agedama so hard he flies several meters. She also smashes a floor and throws a small kid several meters.
** Episode 14: She holds down a MonsterOfTheWeek by flogging it with a broom.
** Episode 24: She resists the Mind Altering Effect of the MonsterOfTheWeek. [[spoiler:Even Agedaman does not have Resist.]]
** Episode 29: Ibuki was smashed along with Agedama through concrete into a tree. She fainted but was not injured...
** Episode 30: She moves extremely rapidly to support her relative when she fainted.
** Episode 32: The whole thing about [[spoiler:goldfish]] aside, did she just fly a little?
** Episode 36: She hurls a catchball hard enough to fly its catcher into his team, scattering them. She also shoves another MonsterOfTheWeek offscreen.
** Episode 43: Ibuki was flung into an electric fence, again losing consciousness but without injury.
** Episode 48: She rips out components from a lamp-post.
