* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The now out of print DVD boxset will set you back at least ¥70,000, usually closer to ¥100,000 (~$1000 USD) -- which is only slightly more expensive than when it was ''in print''.
* LongRunners: In October 1981, long-running anime were still extremely rare (''Manga/AstroBoy'', ''Manga/SazaeSan'', ''Manga/{{Doraemon}}, and ''Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket'' being notable exceptions). Yet '''''this''''' show with its simple, absurd, and extraordinarily risque premise ran for two full years, putting out a total of '''95''' episodes.

to:

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Still the case in Japan, but not the West since Discotek licensed it and (slowly) put up all 95 episodes on Crunchyroll before later releasing it on video.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossdressingVoice: The perverted teen Kenta is voiced by Creator/MasakoNozawa, mostly known for voicing Goku and Gohan in ''Franchise/DragonBall''.

Added DiffLines:

* CashCowFranchise: Takeshi Ebihara, the artist of the original manga, continues to try to invoke this, farming its popularity by publishing Doujinshi of his own series through the website, [[http://www003.upp.so-net.ne.jp/maicching/ Miss Machiko's Roll Book]] (''NSFW''). MMS was also one of the first manga series to embrace eBook publishing as a result.
** Special note goes to the "Box" series of bonus works (Pink Box, Black Box, etc) -- they are filler from the anime in manga form and retellings of the early chapters after CharacterizationMarchesOn took hold, and dial the {{Fanservice}} up to eleven. Notably, Machiko is either much [[InnocentFanserviceGirl more]] or [[MsFanservice less]] innocent depending on how you interpret certain scenes.
** The anime was popular enough in Japan to spawn at least ''six'' live-action movies and multiple [[https://archive.is/Nle4x stage plays]], all made long after the anime and manga ended, thus taking the series well into TheNewTwenties.

* [[HeAlsoDid She Also Did]]: Creator/RihokoYoshida played ReluctantFanserviceGirl Machiko seven years after she played another Reluctant Fanservice Girl, Megu Kanzaki in ''Anime/MajokkoMegChan''.
