* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: At the end Hiromi's parents decide not to divorce, her mother moves to San Francisco to take a new job, while Hiromi stays in Japan with her father eventually moving all together with her mother, the downside is that Junkers has lost his ability to speak and is now a normal dog... or is he?]].

* MundaneWish: Hiromi while running with Junkers after Yoko's car she shouts "I wish you to come back!", Junkers then grants her second wish, and Yoko and Keisuke reconcile.
** For her third wish [[spoiler: Junkers offers Hiromi to wish her parents don't get divorced, Hiromi declines by saying that she doesn't want to force them to live together if they don't love each other anymore, then she breaks down sobbing, and wishes that, just one last time, her family to be all happy together, Junkers grants her wish and whisks her and her parents away to the beach where Hiromi has her best childhood memories]].
* ParentalObliviousness: Oho boy... Both of Hiromi's parents are completely oblivious to her suffering, believing her to be very mature and taking the divorce quite well.
