* KarmaHoudini: The Kazune-Z, Kazune's fan club, pick on Karin throughout volume 2, to the point of hurting her self-esteem, and they don't even get so much as a reprimand for it.


[[CuteClumsyGirl Klutzy]], [[ThisLoserIsYou underachieving]] sixth-grader Karin is miserable. Not only are her [[ParentalAbandonment parents dead]], but her beloved cat, Shii-chan, just died, and on top of all of that, she gets terrible grades in school. Little does she know that, thanks to [[RingOfPower a ring]] that was [[OrphansPlotTrinket left to her]] by her [[MissingMom late mother]], Karin is about to transform into a goddess, and her life will never be the same. Teaming up with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Kazune Kujou]], she vows to protect Kazune's cousin Himeka from [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Kirio Karasuma]], who is after her for unknown reasons. Karin also gets a crush on Kirio's twin brother [[{{Bishonen}} Kirika Karasuma]], but could he be involved with his brother's plans? And why does the NewTransferStudent Michiru "Micchi" Nishikiori have a [[TransformationTrinket god transformation ring]] of his own?

* BigFancyHouse: both the Kujous' and Karasumas', to the point where both Karin and Ami have gotten lost in them. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when Karin wonders why they all have such big houses. Jin's mansion is much bigger, and [[BishieSparkle sparkly]]. [[spoiler:It turns out to be a subversion, as Jin doesn't live in the house himself, but lives in a shack, and has never been inside the actual house.]]
