Added DiffLines:

* DoItYourselfThemeTune: Both the opening ("Three Piece") and ending ("Inkya Impulse") were sung by the voice actors of the main trio. Hina Kino (Hanako) in particular received recognition for being not half bad at singing (read: ''screaming'') ''metal'' of all things.


* AbuseMistake: In an innocent example, Olivia and Kasumi practice using makeup on Hanako. Since none of them has much experience, they mess up, and Takayanagi-sensei walks in to the girls standing over Hanako, who has what appears to be a black eye (eye shadow) and a bruised cheek (rouge).

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Played for laughs. When Hanako's phone game points out that Olivia is riddled with bacteria on her armpits, this is played out as being part of her body odor. In reality, while body odor can be caused by bacterial accumulation, it's pointed out that Olivia's body odor is due to the fact that she has active apocrine sweat glands as a person of Caucasian descent, a problem that has very little to do with bacteria as a whole. All in all, the joke further implies that Olivia, apart from the body odor, is untidy.



* TruthInTelevision: When Hanako smells her armpit, she says that Olivia has apocrine sweat glands. East Asians have been found to have very few apocrine sweat glands compared to those of European and African descent and thus have little-to-no body odor. Therefore, it makes sense that Olivia would have bad body odor compared to the Japanese Hanako and Kasumi. Also, as with most people with bad body odor, she doesn't quite notice her own funk, and also happens to be at the age where teens of her demographic/ethnicity start using deodorant (13-14 years old), only that she doesn't have peers of her demographic around her to let her know, and lives in a country where the very fact that someone points it out to her can be considered rude and in bad taste.

* ForWantOfANail: In Episode 5, an entire bistro restaurant got burned down because of Hanako's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxooZ2kqjmI flunked attempt at pen-spinning]].

Added DiffLines:

* SchoolgirlSeries: A rather absurd {{Parody}} of this genre. While the three girls are certainly cute, this series is definitely not a typical "cute girls doing cute things" story, as all three of them are moronic jerks who frequently do and say things that are decidedly ''not'' cute. It seems to set out to prove that contrary to what most anime of the genre will tell you, middle school girls can be just as weird and gross as middle school boys.


* OneGenderSchool: The series is set at an all-girls' school, and there's also an all-boys' school nearby that's sometimes brought up.

* NondescriptClub: The Pastimers Club has a very vague goal of "having fun". RealityEnsues when the Student Council President rejects the girls' bid to get approved as a club, since they only have three members and "having fun" is something they could easily do at home.

RealityEnsues when the Student Council President rejects the girls' bid to get approved as a club, since they only have three members and "having fun" is something they could easily do at home. Additionally, in more technical terms, they wouldn't be considered a "club", but rather an association.

* BaitAndSwitchCredits: The opening theme, "Three-Piece", is a cute and fluffy song with visuals of the three protagonists in white sundresses with [[YuriGenre copious lilies everywhere]], suggesting that it's an easygoing slice-of-life series. In actuality, the series is a surreal comedy featuring the girls being moronic jerks to each other and everyone else. The ending theme, "Inkya Impulse", which is a heavy metal song featuring surreal neon scribbles of the girls while Hanako screams about popular girls, is more in line with the series' true tone. Also, there are several species of lilies that are highly poisonous, so there's that too.

While lilies might make most viewers think of the YuriGenre, yellow lilies specifically symbolize falsehood; this can be seen as a hint that despite the cute, fluffy visuals, this opening is [[BaitAndSwitchCredits lying about the show being your typical easygoing]] SchoolgirlSeries.
