Added DiffLines:

* HairColorSpoiler: Ririka has bright blonde hair despite all of her family members, and almost all of her peers, having brown or black hair. This seems like a typical case of the protagonist having abnormal hair to distinguish them as important, however her hair color is more than symbolic. [[spoiler:Ririka is the reincarnation of the original Nurse Angel, who was also blonde, and is actually the Flower of Life she has been looking for the entire series]].

* ADayInTheLimelight: The show has a few episodes that center on secondary characters which count among its most memorable. The episode where Ririka's dad bonds with Herb and befriends Miyuki is funny and unexpectedly touching, and the Valentines Day episode is a cute and bittersweet story about Karin with some nice flourishes in the animation.



* GoodParents: The maind characters' parents in the TV series are very supportive and often provide useful advice. Ririka's dad is [[BumblingDad kind of awkward]] but well-meaning.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: In 1995, a flip-phone in the possession of 10-year-old girl like Miyuki was a sign that she was wealthy and had every advantage. Now the joke is that she has a ''flip-phone''.
** Likewise, episode 7 of the anime incorporates a pager into the plot, and nowadays that is a practically a punchline in and of itself...assuming pagers aren't older than the audience.
