Added DiffLines:

* AndYourRewardIsParenthood: Get married and you'll eventually have a child. Strangely, seeing the child grow up from a toddler into a grown child is a special event--meaning the child will be a baby forever if you don't trigger the event!


* A post-marriage line for Mikhail is "At night, your voice is like a serenade to my heart." He adds that it's his favorite time of the day.

* You can marry the nun Alisa but she has given herself to the Harvest Goddess. You can't have kids with her. It's all but said [[ChastityCouple that you two don't have sex]].

** One of the date options for Hiro is "Hiro's Room".
** Likewise, one of Oracle's date options is her house.

* This game zigzags the animal breeding issue. On one hand, there are no more Miracle Potions, the livestock trader simply takes the animal off your hands for a couple weeks before returning them along with a baby. On the other, this makes complete sense: it's quite clear what goes on at a stud farm.

* ArtificialStupidity: When you throw a dog bone or a cat bell, it's possible your pets might run around in circles, confused. Justified, since dogs are dumb.

* {{Bishonen}}: The male player character, Ash and Cam are very pretty young men. Hiro leans more towards the cuter side, while Kana leans more towards the masculine, "handsome" side.
** Mikhail, who travels between towns between seasons, is a definite example. He may be mistaken for a [[{{Bifauxnen}} boyish woman]] by some players because of his feminine face
* BraggingRightsReward: Marrying Alisa. She's the last of any marriage candidate to be unlocked (Fall of Year 2 at the earliest), the requirements to woo her are totally different than everyone else's (ex. You have to go on at least 100 dates with her and she has no special heart event) and when you finally manage to wed her (Late Winter, Year 3 at the earliest), you don't even get to have kids with her. Not to mention you have to use the Wonderfuls to wish for permission from the Harvest Goddess to marry Alisa. There's a good chance the option to ask won't come up.

* FarEast: Konohana is fashioned off of various elements of East Asian cultures, particularly Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.
* FakeLongevity: One of the main criticisms of this game is that, you can only clear a portion of the tunnel, upgrade your house or upgrade your farm one at a time, and the request only appears once a month. This means it might take several years to get what you want.

* SequelDifficultySpike: Zig-Zagged. Gaining [[RelationshipValues affection]] with your animals is [[InvertedTrope easier]] thanks to a new petting {{minigame}}, but gaining affection with the bachelors/bachelorettes is harder, and a lot closer to RealLife, in that you have to go on dates and it takes time for them to grow on you.
