* DitzyGenius: It is made very clear in the series that Kano is just as intelligent as she is [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} erratic in her thought process]]...which is A LOT to say the least.

** Two in the finale: The blurb in the VHS cover for the final volume of Emerjason says "Emerjason fights for rescue", a take on Janperson's blurb in the opening sequence ("Janperson fights for justice"), as well as the said show's finale almost mirroring that of Series/ChoujinkiMetalder's (minus the "he can never go back to his human form" part).



* YoureNotMyMother: [[spoiler: Kano all but screams this at Fumi's face when she's had enough of the latter's insults of her hobbies and insistence on pushing her own unwarranted ideals on her daughter, regardless how many years Kano rejected them. Though Kano does take steps to mend they're relationship in the final episode.]]

* TheDutifulSon: Nozomu, Kano's older brother, despite feeling just as smothered and exasperated as his little sister, still visits they're mother every year with his family, [[{{Foil}} whereas Kano]] does everything in her power to ''avoid'' doing such a thing until she has no other choice.

Added DiffLines:

** Charahiko speculating on Kano's (nonexistant) boyfriend.


** In series, the toku characters act as surrogates for Kano, her friends, and family. Mr. Yakuza is Chelda, Yoshida is Toraiger, [[spoiler:Kitashiro and Miyabi]] are the extra hero Shelotl and her mother is ''Juushowan'''s main villain. Kano herself is dually represented by Shishi Leo (her favorite character from the series) and Emerjason (who has been with her since childhood and was the reason she reconnected with Toku in her teens).

Shortly after this, we're given the reason why she's so different these days: [[spoiler:her friend Miyabi outed her as an idol fan in front of her coworkers and they mocked her about her interest until she eventually found a different job]]

* MyBelovedSmother: Kano's mother Fumi, who wants her to ditch the hobby and make her a proper lady. Unfortunately, she's handled this ''terribly'' throughout Kano's life by putting excessive pressure on her, screaming at her, bullying her and burning her toku magazines in front of her daughter with the excuse that it's some rubbish she found.

** In episode 4, Kano attempts to persuade the office that personal plans are an adequate reason to go home early. When she believes she's successful, she turns to the screen and makes reference to returning home "to our valley" as the logo for Anime/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind appears.
** Another Terrace House reference in episode 5, as We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together by Music/TaylorSwift plays when the cast imagines Kano playing beach volleyball. The song was used as an opening for the series in its original broadcast in Japan.

* WhamEpisode: Episode 6 involves Kano [[spoiler:meeting Mr. Yakuza's mother who is the polar opposite of her own. While she has and still does have reservations about a boy/man who is a massive nerd for a girl's children's anime, she recognises that it was because of the empathy he felt for Tiara in "Love Cute" that he was able to continue going to school when he felt pressured to be more traditionally masculine and why for all his intimidating looks he's a very kind person. She therefore accepts him for who he is and deals by having a lot of fun at ''Love Cute'''s expense. Afterwards Fumi makes a surprise visit and, arriving at Kano's flat when she's not home, finally sees her toku collection. Kano, bolstered by the understanding between her friend and his mother, thinks this is an opportunity. She calmly and openly that she doesn't think it matters what you like if you enjoy it, how she's gained real friendships through her hobby and she's in a really good place. Her mother silently listens...then slaps her across the face, degrades her friends, claims no one will want her past 30 and then starts talking about her friends eventually leaving her when THEY find partners. Kano is left in shock, picturing her friends as the ''Juushowan'' being defeated. It comes to a head when Fumi rips the arm off of her Shishi Leo figure (the character she most empathizes with). Kano snaps, slaps her mother and disowns her. All of this happens in a fancy restaurant her brother had booked to try and keep the peace between them.]]
