Added DiffLines:

* RecurringExtra: The manga keeps a sizable and consistent cast of unique-looking characters to serve as background extras. Many of these extras [[AscendedExtra evolve into major characters down the line]], with Hina being the biggest example.

Added DiffLines:

* FoodPorn: Usually whenever the characters stop to eat a meal, at least one panel will be devoted to showing off what food they'll be eating in great detail. Even the school cafeteria appears to be in the business of making dishes that look appetizing.

Added DiffLines:

* BugCatching: Tomoko, Yuu, and Kotomi spend a summer day catching bugs together, with Tomoko hoping they can create a magical super bug that can curse people if it eats up all the others. That doesn't happen of course, though Yuu does manage to find a big rhinoceros beetle that she ends up keeping as a pet. [[spoiler:Kotomi does the same with a ''centipede''.]]


* NotWhatItLooksLike: Chapter 80. When Tomoko accidentally knocks over Ucchi's luggage and spills her clothes all over the floor, she frantically tries putting them all back in before her roommate comes out of the shower and assumes she was up to something perverse. She only has enough time to get everything in save for a pair of panties, which she decides to hide under her covers and sneak back in at a later time. Unfortunately for her, Ucchi finds the panties and assumes Tomoko was up to something perverse. From that point on, she assumes ''everything'' Tomoko does is for perverse reasons.

** Ucchi's friend, Miyazaki, rides the train together with Tomoko, and due to how crowded it is, the latter ends up leaning real close into the former in a way that makes it look like Tomoko is groping her from behind. Ucchi sees this and assumes the worst. Then in a later chapter, Ucchi overhears Miyazaki musing about Tomoko out loud, and jumps to the conclusion that she is also crushing on the girl, to her horror.


* CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest: While Tomoko acts plenty perverted towards anyone she finds physically attractive, like Yuu, she can't bring herself to say or do anything lewd around Asuka, whom she's placed on a pedestal since developing a crush on. [[spoiler:Even when Asuka ''outright offers'' to let Tomoko grope her breasts, Tomoko can't do it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Played straight in chapter 140, where Tomoko styles her hair and dresses nicely for her visit to Aoyama University, and manages to look rather pleasant for the occasion.

** [[spoiler:"Where's -->'''Tomoko''': Where's the Gorilla!?"]]Gorilla!?

Added DiffLines:

* NewFriendEnvy: This is a recurring issue.
** One of the reasons why Tomoko was so hostile to Kotomi was because she didn't want to share any attention from Yuu.
** This is a frequent issue with Yuri, who acts colder than usual whenever it appears someone is getting closer to Tomoko, with Hina and Asuka being the most common causes. It's not just new friends either; Yuri's behavior turned passive-aggressive the first time she met Tomoko oldest friend, Yuu.

Added DiffLines:

**The second Christmas chapter subverts this. Tomoko puts in the effort to make herself look nicer for the class Christmas party and she looks much better than normal, but nobody notices because she's too nervous to talk to anybody.

Added DiffLines:

* NerdsAreVirgins: Tomoko tries her damnedest to avert this trope, to no avail much to her frustration. PlayedWith however, because while the nerdy Tomoko is indeed a virgin who couldn't get a boyfriend to save her life, it's strongly implied that many of the more sociable and popular girls in her class have just as much sexual and dating experience as she does.

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroApprovalGambit: Invoked in chapter 152. When Tomoko finds out that Ucchi had a falling out with her friends, she tries to help by antagonizing Ucchi in front of her friends, hoping it would make them forget about their fight and unite against her. [[spoiler:It doesn't work, even though Ucchi falls for it and runs away crying, because her friends see right through it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In the prequel series, Tomoko spots Kotomi at a bookstore, and tries to pretend she didn't see her so she doesn't have to deal with her. Kotomi then turns around and spots Tomoko, then pretends not to have seen her, which pisses Tomoko off.
