* The Helvetica Standard in Ep.18 stands out in all of them for being ''very'' different. Not only is there a beautiful ArtShift, but the tone is also quite sentimental and nostalgic. When the book the girl was looking for turned out to be emptied out and was hiding a gun, this initially seems like a CrowningMomentOfFunny. However, this scene can easily be interpreted differently that turns it into a massive FunnyAneurysmMoment. The girl did not seem surprised when she found the book, and in fact, she stated that she wanted this specific book, ''not'' any other copy. [[DarkAndTroubledPast If she did indeed know there was a gun in this book]], what do you think she meant by "it brought ''colour'' into my grey childhood"?

** It's not some random guy, though. It's Sasahara, meaning the explosion is probably [[{{Tsundere}} Misato]] up to her [[TheGunslinger usual antics]].

Added DiffLines:

** The Professor 'ruining' it also has a bit of a symbolic value to it. Not only was the other eye filled, but both eyes were crossed out; Nano may have wanted to be human, but with her own emotions, desires, and everything; she not only had achieved that goal, but was *already* human, despite being a machine.


* You may wonder why Nano's so attached to the red, one-eyed doll and gets angry once Professor ruins it. It is a Daruma doll - meant to motivate you. You fill out one eye (and the doll in question was like this) when you set a 'goal' and place it around your house to remind yourself of the goal. Once you reach it - you fill out the second eye. Since Nano's biggest wish is to be human she probably filled out the first eye thinking about this. No wonder she got angry.

* In a hilarious random side-scene in Episode 6, a random guy just got bomb-dropped. It's even funnier when you realize that Yuuko is probably still standing in the hallway. I feel bad for her, the world is too much for her to handle!



*** Two halves, hinged, with a clasp or magnet on the other side.
*** In chapter 135 we see flashback of Mio getting her hair clips, and she doesn't know how they work either. At the end a hair clips vendor shows her the trick ("This goes like this, then you do this and then like this..." with his hands out of picture) -- and that's about the best explanation we'll ever get.

book.


* In Episode 12, a coffee shop employee told Sakurai that she'd have to tell her which sweets she wished to buy, despite the fact that she was very clearly pointing at them. Why? She's blind.
** Jossed. It turns she's just not good at explaining things to people. See Episode 16 where she didn't help Yuuko explain what were those weird coffee size names.
** Plus if you've ever worked in food service with a similar setup, you know how difficult it can be to tell what someone is pointing at when they're standing on the other side of a display case. Much easier when they just tell you the name.



** You may be giving her too much credit for logical thinking.



*** Kids LOVE dinosaurs, but I doubt they wouldn't be terrified if they actually came across a REAL LIFE T-rex.

-Misato vs. Mio: Both have violent tempers, both have crushes on Sasahara, and they are the only two students in the anime with confirmed siblings.
-Fe-chan vs. Yuuko: Both are optimistic, both get hurt a lot and often have their jokes backfire, and they have similarish haircuts.
-Weboshii vs. Mai: Uh...

to:

* The first real scene, and definitely the first part most people remember, involves Nano running into that kid and causing a huge explosion. Hence, the series LITERALLY starts off with a bang!



to:

* When Nano has a series of memories after she finally takes her key off, which results in her keeping her key anyway, one of the flashbacks involves Sakamoto calling her "girl" as he usually does. Not "robot" or even "robot girl"; Sakamoto knows full well that Nano is a robot, but still sees her as an (otherwise) ordinary girl.

Added DiffLines:

* The trio of Misato, Weboshii and Fe-chan seems like an imperfect derivative of the main trio of Mio, Mai and Yuuko:
-Misato vs. Mio: Both have violent tempers, both have crushes on Sasahara, and they are the only two students in the anime with confirmed siblings.
-Fe-chan vs. Yuuko: Both are optimistic, both get hurt a lot and often have their jokes backfire, and they have similarish haircuts.
