Seaside MaidCafe in the Maruko Shopping District at first glance seems normal. Maybe ''too'' normal; except for its waitresses wearing [[{{Meido}} maid uniforms]], it's a regular coffee shop (it doesn't even serve ''tea''). But its staff is rather odd: [[{{Dojikko}} Hotori Arashiyama]] aspires to be a [[GenkiGirl detective]], [[CosplayOtakuGirl Toshiko Tatsuno]] is a [[SeriousBusiness perfectionist]], and Uki, the owner, is an old woman with [[LarynxDissonance an unusual voice]].

* CuteClumsyGirl -- Hotori can make ''clumsy combos''. [[spoiler: And when she dies, she gets into the Ancient Egyptian afterlife rather than the Japanese.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash -- The final episode of the anime adapts the second manga volume. [[spoiler: It starts out with the typical comedic tone and ends with everyone in Hotori's life grieving over her when an accident renders her comatose.]]

** Hotori shares a lot with [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Tomo]], with a dash of [[{{CloudCuckoolander}} Osaka]]. And looks like ''{{Yotsuba}}'''s Fuuka. Add to this a teacher that looks like a long-haired Kimura with his mouth shut and the occasional use of very familiar face expressions and it seems like someone is a fan of Kiyohiko Azuma.

* FootFocus
** There is one case, when Hotori jolted in frustration after her Moriaki-sensei DaydreamSurprise.
** There's another blatant case in the same episode by Toshiko. And yet another by Kon in Episode 6. Low-angle shots are pretty common in this show and they are usually taken ''below'' the ground.
