Added DiffLines:

** Apparently characters are capable of [[MediumAwareness watching]] each other's Imagine Spots as they happen. When Riko has one, Maki watches it and concludes that she must [[spoiler:have a crush on Nagi, because the "hero" of her fantasy looked a lot like him]].
** Characters are also capable of literally ripping apart offensive Imagine Spots like projector screens, with ''[[PaperFanOfDoom harisen]]''.
** At one point, Maki literally steals the "hero" of Eno's fantasy while they were simultaneously daydreaming.


Added DiffLines:

* MediumAwareness: The girls are always referencing the fact that they're in a manga (e.g., "Look at the face she made two panels ago!", "I've been noticing ever since Volume 5...").

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[SenseiChan Sugihara-sensei]] is more than willing to overlook the Student Council and Newspaper Association's less harmful activities that technically go against school policy, though mostly because she [[ApatheticTeacher can't be bothered to care]], and at one point even helps them out [[FoodAsBribe for a bentou]]. Though she's not above using this information to [[LazyBum wheedle some of her responsibilities onto them]].

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGag: One of the first sessions of "love research" that Maki and Riko hold include [[ReturningTheHandkerchief returning a lost handkerchief]] [[InvokedTrope that has Maki's name and contact information on it]], which Riko then confiscates. Riko ends up using it to find Maki's address in episode 13.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Suzu was a fan of the dog-bus from [[Anime/MyNeighborTotoro My Neighbor Tororo]] as a little girl.


* CuteClumsyGirl:
** Maki attempts to be this, but fails miserably.
** Suzune plays it straight, tripping constantly. Riko utilizes this to distract the faculty members in episode 5 to buy time for Maki and Yuiko to use the PA system.
** Nana Ichikawa also plays this trope straight. In one hilarious scene, she runs off after leaving a photo of Riko by the student council office, but is so slow and trips so often that Suzune, despite also tripping a few times, manages to catch her. Some of the other students wonder if this was a skit.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: As the series goes on, the Fujisaki student council starts shipping [[spoiler:Riko/Nagi and Yuiko/Haru]] as the girl's crushes get obvious.


* BlackFace: Used as part of a gag in episode 8 when Maki tries to be a "Soul Sister" in order to feel what it's like to be a girl with darker skin and who weigh a little more than usual. ValuesDissonance aside, this could also be a reference to Ganguro, a type of Japanese style that was once fairly popular and includes deep tanning and often gaudy clothing. Then again, Ganguro style was a fad that died out at least a decade ago. Even then, aside from "Soul Sister" not even being in their vocabulary, it was a counterculture movement against Japanese beauty standards using bleached hair, not afros, and tanning that ended up stereotypically orange - even among the types of Ganguro style that were intentionally based off of black people, afros included, they are still functionally blackface.

* GratuitousEnglish: Surprisingly averted when the Maki and Yuiko make a PA announcement stating they were giving an English lesson to help students a little bit. They use a little bit, but then go back to speaking in Japanese.

** When Riko catches Maki kissing a body pillow, Maki tries to cover it up by telling claiming that it was just Riko's imagination, and that the pillow is a fairy. Suzune's first (and brief) appereance was dismissed similarly.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: From volume 5 on the series very teasy. With the couples being Riko/Nagi, Maki/Yan, Yuiko/[[spoiler:Haru]] and Suzu/[[spoiler:Ren]]


* WhoIsThisGuyAgain: In episode 6, when Sayori attempts to call out Riko on her knowledge about men, a boy comes up to her, calls her by name, and says it's been a while since they've seen each other. Sayori asks if this was a guy Riko turned down, causing a lot of embarrassment to him, and he runs off. Cue {{Squee}} by Maki as Riko's "knowledge" seems to be confirmed about dumping boys left and right. And unfortunately for Riko, she doesn't remember him. [[spoiler:She later finds out that he was a ChildhoodFriend of hers, but looks a lot different than he did when they were younger, hence why she didn't recognize him at first.]]


* BlackFace: Used as part of a gag in episode 8 when Maki tries to be a "Soul Sister" in order to feel what it's like to be a girl with [[{{UnfortunateImplications}} darker skin and who weigh a little more than usual]].
