He remarks that the timing helps to keep him from standing out too much because of it.

Related is that Ryuuko rather abuses onomatopoeias in every conversation with Makoto, replacing various words in the middle of sentences with their sound effects instead. It's one of her primary [[CharmPoint charm points]], although most of the instances don't really lend themselves to being [[LostInTranslation easily depicted in translations]].
** Erio also does this on occasion, usually when in a really good mood, although half of the time she's not really vocalizing specific sound effects so much as just making random sounds for fun.


* {{Expy}}: Meme looks like [[LightNovel/ToraDora a certain baka-chihuahua]].
** And Makoto's basically a [[DeadpanSnarker snarkier]] version of [[{{LightNovel/Durarara}} Mikado]].


* ChristmasCake: Meme. She even makes a literal joke about it when Makoto comes home from the hospital, leaving a note that there's cake in the fridge to celebrate his discharge, and it's close to expiry date, so he needs to eat it quick. Guess what he sees when he opens the door...

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Getting a bad reputation will make it difficult to have a normal life in the future, especially in a place your infamous in. Not only was this the reason Erio failed her first job interview, she also brings up the difficulty of returning to school, and admitting it's very unlikely she could go back even if she wanted to. It doesn't help that even if she manage to go back, she would still need to deal the social scrutiny it comes with it, giving more reason why she rather take a job than return to school.
