''Morita-san Wa Mukuchi'' ("Morita-san Is Quiet") is a Japanese four-panel comic strip manga written and illustrated by Tae Sano. It's about Mayu Morita, a high school girl who is extremely reticent. Her silence and habit of looking at people's eyes straightly sometimes cause misunderstandings. The reason behind it is not because she doesn’t like to talk nor because she has nothing to say. The reason she rarely speaks is due to the fact she thinks too much before speaking, thus losing the timing to speak altogether. She lives a happy school life with her classmates.

!!Tropes:

* AlliterativeName: Mayu Morita and Miki Murakoshi.
* TheCameo: Atsumi and Atsushi from ''Manga/RecorderAndRandsell'' walk past in the final episode. Mayu and Hana return the favor in the first episode of their show.
* CargoEnvy: Kouta in the OVA said he wanted to be reincarnated as SchoolSwimsuit.
* ChildhoodFriends: Mayu and Miki
* CrossPoppingVeins: Mayu's mother often gets these over Morita's father.
* DudeNotFunny: Deliberately invoked in-story by Hana as a RunningJoke. In episode 16, when Miki and Chihiro joke about magazines with stories about broken homes.
-->'''Hana:''' I see those stories play out in my house every day.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness:
** Mayu averts this, since she's actually not unhappy. It kind of scares some people.
** Hana exemplifies the trope whenever something reminds her of home.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer:
** Yamamoto is very popular with the female student body.
** Megane for Mayu.

* FourGirlEnsemble: Namely, Chihiro, Miki, Mayu, and Hana.
* GenkiGirl: Miki Murakoshi
* GirlishPigtails: Chihiro and Megane.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Kouta and Ryuichi certainly think so, to the point that Kouta wants to be reincarnated as a girl.
* GratuitousFrench: There's a cookbook that's titled "Le plat qui est amoureux", which means "the dish which is in love"; maybe it was supposed to be "The Lovely Dish"?
* HappilyMarried: Morita's parents. The secret seems to be zealously making up after jealous fights.
* HeroicMime: Mayu
* {{Iyashikei}}: Both seasons OP lyrics exemplify this.
** Season 1
--->''Let's be more loving \\
Let's love everyone with all our might! \\
It's a wonderful thing, isn't it? \\
I don't know about hurting others \\
There are many things that can't be compared, \\
but I want to be by your side!''
** Season 2
--->''Nyaa-Nyaa-Nyaa-Nyaa-Nyaa! \\
Don't be afraid! \\
It's alright! I'll help you! \\
Nyaa-Nyaa-Nyaa-Nyaa-Nyaa! \\
You don't have to say anything! \\
I understand you perfectly! \\
Your gentle and clumsy side ... \\
is what I love the most!''
* KimonoIsTraditional: Yumi is always shown wearing a kimono.
* LetterMotif: All of the girls' family names start with M.
* LoveBubbles: High-school girls like sweet things!

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Megane Musume (Glasses Girl)
* RealSongThemeTune: Season 1's OP is a Creator/IoriNomizu cover of a Lindberg song.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: Megane may well qualify, and there is also the moment when Mayu overhears how a girl confesses to Ritsuki.
* SchoolgirlSeries
* SeriousBusiness: Hana and cooking. Mayu and talking.
* ShrinkingViolet: Hana
* StalkerWithACrush: Megane
* SweatDrop: Mayu, a lot.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Kouta and Ryuichi
* VerbalBackspace: Yamamoto does this often around Mayu.
-->'''Yamamoto:''' (''to Mayu'') You turn me on (Mura Mura).\\
(''Mayu blushes and self-consciously covers herself'')``
'''Yamamoto:''' Sorry, I said it wrong. You irritate (ira ira) me.
* TheVoiceless: Mayu
* WomanScorned: Played with, in that Yumi (Mayu's mom) constantly thinks that her husband is cheating on her.
