* In chapter 55, Kaguya coldly tells off two girls who try to convince her not to tutor Ishigami. Of course, Kaguya knows the truth about Ishigami’s suspension due to the Student Council’s investigation, but this is also likely personal: having been the subject of unflattering rumors herself, Kaguya *detests* gossip, and is thus sympathetic to Ishigami’s plight.

** Shinomiya Un'yo, Kaguya's older brother, is a deeply unpleasant man who is willing to kidnap and... extract information from Hayasaka in order to get an edge on his older brothers. ''He's also the brother Kaguya dislikes the least''.

* Also relating to above, Kaguya's MoodSwinger attitude may be one of the source of comedy in the series, but combined with her self deprecation and subtle suicidal thoughts in Chapter 146 hinted that she is suffering from mental depression, especially given her background of being pressured by the Shinomiya family as a metaphorical prison.


* In Chapter 149, Moeha quickly sniffs out Kaguya's subtle plan to cheat during the gift exchange lot-drawing by marking Shirogane's chopstick with wax. After a lifetime of playing games with notoriously over-competitive cheater Chika (and being an implied cheater herself, given she coincidentally ends up with Shirogane's gift), it makes sense that Moeha would be hyper-aware of any sort of subterfuge.



** Fast forward to chapter 194, we learn that since Shuichi'in's students are all wealthy by default, expensive gifts meant nothing to them. Its possible that Shirogane has no knowledge of this since he just enroll into their high school from the first year and lacks a social circle before he was scouted by the previous President of Student Council.

* From relatively early in the series, it's clear that Kaguya is the victim of [[ParentalNeglect a father and a family who don't give her much attention at all]]. However, it's slowly revealed that this isn't exactly a bad thing, because the Shinomiya family - and particularly Gan'an, her father - [[BigScrewedUpFamily are hinted to be some bad, bad people.]] How terrifying is Gan'an? Kaguya is actually 'relieved' that she rarely interacts with her father, and she's so stressed out about her father finding out that she agreed to go to America with Shirogane that it triggers a personality switch for several days.

* Ishigami fought to preserve Otomo's smile and ultimately ended up in disgrace. It's poetic justice and a sign of growth that even if he didn't get the girl, he preserved the tearful smile of Tsubame (whose personality is noted to be very similar to Otomo's) in a much more mature and less self-sacrificing manner.

Added DiffLines:

* Kaguya's lack of disappointment when Shirogane's Christmas gift for her turns out to be an [[ConvenienceStoreGiftShopping expensive Kendama]] makes sense if one were to take account on the fact that she gave him a hand fan for a birthday gift and a stationary set for a Christmas gift. Its one of the signs that all she wanted was a normal life and that said Kendama is a sign of Shirogane trying to be his actual self as well.

* Iino fails outright to tie a cherry stem in Chapter 173, because she tries to force it to move how she wants and bites it in half. [[Control Forcing people to bend is a sign of her immaturity and the reason she kept losing every election so far.

* Iino's HorribleJudgeOfCharacter towards Fujiwara by seeing her as a competent figure while the other student council members as otherwise is obviously like how most politicians were seen as competent on paper. Mind you, what was the occupation of Fujiwara's grandfather, father and uncle again?
** Also, Iino being bias with everything that's Fujiwara is not unlike real life cases of KangarooCourt and judges infamously swinging to a politician's favor.

* Iino's assessment of the rice Kaguya cooked is that it's not bad, but she focused way too much on the details. [[RuleOfSymbolism Which more or less sums up]] Kaguya's relationship problems with Shirogane, who she originally made the rice for. She cares more about ''how'' their relationship starts than the relationship itself.

** Fujiwara and Shirogane having an odd mother-and-son sort of relationship also takes a whole new meaning after the above reveal. As crappy and verbally abusive as Fujiwara can get at times, she always, ''always'' comes back to help Shirogane improve no matter how inept he is at the current subject.
** Moreover, Fujiwara started the manga with the utmost respect for Shirogane, but after seeing how flawed he truly is, now treats him only slightly better than Ishigami, which is more or less ''exactly'' what Shirogane expected to happen should Kaguya learn the truth as well. To see his relationship with Fujiwara devolve into this may have vindicated Shirogane's fears about what would happen if he showed his true self to Kaguya.

* Osaragi [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in Chapter 189 that Tsubame is more or less a spitting image to Kyoko Otomo, the same girl who caused Ishigami to become a pariah in middle school. In the end, was Ishigami's affection for his senior a genuine one, or a case of LovingAShadow?
