** In the 2020 Christmas special, Asuka shows off a photo of she and her friends in sexy Christmas-themed costumes. She's wearing a [[BareYourMidriff midriff-baring]] outfit while her friend Kaho has a more modest but still cute minidress. Yuu thinks the photo is cute; Tomoko thinks it's perverse.


* ChristmasSpecial: Every year, the manga used to devote a chapter to some misadventure of Tomoko's that occured around Christmastime. These were notable in that they could take place [[AnachronicOrder some time before or after the manga's current point in time]]. The authors seem to have abandoned this tradition, as there were no Christmas specials in 2017 and 2018.

* TheCameo: Special chapters released after the spinoff's initial run tend to feature characters from the expanded cast of the main manga, like Yuri, Minami, Mako, Ucchi, Asuka, Masaki, Akane, Hina, and Nagi. Sometimes they're the subject of the comic's current conversation or gag, and other times they're just background fodder.


* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: The December 2020 chapter opens up with Tomoko, Komiyama, and Yuu wearing masks because of a flu outbreak. Tomoko muses that it'd be interesting to have the characters wear masks all the time to reflect what's going on. Komiyama responds by going on a long tangent saying that manga is an escapist medium first and foremost and that there's no need to closely match up with reality, as well as saying that obscuring the characters' mouths would make it harder to tell what they're thinking. The chapter was released months into the UsefulNotes/COVID19Epidemc

** During an English class in chapter 173, the teacher uses the sentence "Dye my hair silver" as part of the lesson. Just a few hours before, Fuuka accidentally walked in on Tomoko while she was in the bathroom and saw she had dyed her pubic hair silver.

* CreepyCockroach: In chapter 34, a giant cockroach appears in the middle of class and causes a panic among the students, who scream and climb onto their desks to get away from it. Seeing an opportunity to earn everyone's admiration, Tomoko stands her ground and stomps it. It doesn't go quite the way she hopes though; rather than being thankful for removing the horrid bug, they become creeped out by her and move their desks further away.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: In chapter 56, Tomoko gets to school late after she catches an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' on TV and gets drawn in. ("Who the hell schedules a cartoon like that in such an early time slot? Even elementary schoolers couldn't watch that without missing school!")
