* BarelyThereSwimwear: Ayaka wears this to the Miss Nikumoshima contest, reasoning that SexSells and this will give her an advantage in the contest. The outfit in question is SO barely-there that we never actually see it, as Ayaka is covered by {{Pixellation}} when wearing it. This ultimately backfires, as Ayaka is [[RealityEnsues disqualified]] because of her swimsuit.

* {{Bishonen}}: Played completely straight with [[spoiler:Hibiki's brother Ibuki, who fits the mold completely. He's so handsome that the older women in the group start fighting over marrying him [[{{Chuunibyou}} despite how damn weird he is.]]]]



* {{Chuunibyou}}: [[spoiler:Ibuki. He's so into it that he doesn't seem to be able to talk normally and wears a black robe with demon horns in public. He's also way too old to still be acting that way, which makes the girls think stupidity must be a Sakura family trait. Despite the older single women in the group being freaked out and turned off by it, he's still so absurdly hot that they end up fighting over him.]]


* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Hibiki becomes curious when sees Machio hanging out with another woman. When Ayaka's sister Nana shows up at the gym, it's revealed that she's the woman who Hibiki saw. It's also revealed that the reason why they were seen together was that they were attending their middle school reunion. [[spoiler:Later on, it's revealed that they went to high school with Ibuki as well.]]

* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: During the amusement park trip in Chapter 26, Satomi, after being separated from the group because of a nausea, goes off on her own in her ''{{joshikousei}}'' cosplay, musing that she'd better not run into someone she knows, lest they learn about her hobby. Unfortunately, she runs into Rumika, who's ''also'' cosplaying as a ''joshikousei'', and the two freeze in shock. They agree afterwards to pretend like nothing ever happened.

* ShownTheirWork: It actually is true that static stretches actually do more harm than good when done at the very beginning of a workout routine, akin to the "cold elastic" principle. For the record, static stretches are more suitable for the "cool down" period in a workout whereas the dynamic stretches Akemi recommends are what you use to "warm up". The manga even handily cites the study as a reference.
