* HypeBacklash: A certain clique of the fanbase refuses to acknowledge any of the characters being with male characters at all, so the [[http://www.siliconera.com/2018/07/16/love-live-idol-group-aqours-to-appear-in-a-granblue-fantasy-collaboration-in-august/ collaboration between the series and]] ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' ended up raising a furor from the LBGTFanbase (which includes non-Granblue Fantasy fans) after they realized that the girls would interact with various male characters in the game.[[note]]As long you know how to switch the player character's gender (Gran into Djeeta).[[/note]]

** When it comes to real life; are the voice actresses (Notably Suwawa (Kanan) and Aina (Mari)'s [=and/or=] Rikako (Riko) and Aika (Yoshiko)'s LikeAnOldMarriedCouple chemistry) actually just teasing the fandom for the sake of [[RatingsStunt boosting the audience ratings]], or are they really THAT affectionate to one another behind the scenes? A [[https://twitter.com/yujachachacha/status/1006089608298311680 translation]] of a magazine indicates the former.

In Suwawa's case, her interview comments and off-screen actions does raise a few eyebrows.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The "WONDERFUL STORIES" tour had an animated skit that played while the cast was backstage changing outfits where Mari and Riko walk into a bizarre scene of Yoshiko portraying an abusive father to "his" "wife" You and "daughters" Dia and Ruby. Later, Chika, Kanan, and Hanamaru portraying loan sharks come and repo everything they own. In a ''realistic'' context, this would be actually rather dark, but the given scenario (with Riko trying to be the OnlySaneMan and Mari [[CloudCuckoolander being Mari]]) is so absurd that it simply wraps around to hilarious.

Added DiffLines:

* CrackIsCheaper: Attemtping to book a stay at the hotel room that Mari's private suite is based on will run you a bill of at least '''$3000 per night.''' Woe to the wallets of those who try to visit Numazu City to complete the ''Sunshine!!'' experience.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry: Not to as much of an extent as other examples, but some fans of other subunits can be a bit bitter towards Guilty Kiss due to Guilty Kiss' overwhelming popularity having a tendency to overshadow [=CYaRon!=] and AZALEA.


** In a minor extent, the unexpected appearances of [[spoiler:Mari's parents and Chika's father]] in Season 2, Episode 10, which pretty much surprised those fans who truly believed that the [[MemeticMutation concept of the male gender are merely extinct/truly non-existent in their universe]].
** The Honoka lookalike from Season 1, Episode 12 also surprised many fans, which believed that Honoka herself had the powers of time-traveling. Since the lookalike's eyes are green, some/half of the people assumed that [[HoYay Honoka and Tsubasa]] [[FanficFuel finally started a family somewhere.]] (The lookalike's ''real'' mother would probably be dismissed as her guardian.)
*** There's another one: the [[OneSceneWonder generic woman from Season 2, Episode 11]], who leaves just before Chika and Riko discuss their waitress outfits. This made people widely believe that the woman's actually [[TheCameo Umi]]. In truth: The generic's design was reused from her character art, but with her bangs swapped. 10 points if [[https://imgur.com/a/xRTI2AT another generic woman on the left of the lookalike]] is [[https://imgur.com/abt3Tqk Photoshopped with blonde hair to resemble Eli to represent that "Storm in Lover" is FINALLY canon]].

** Due to the a small amount of lookalikes seen in the show, many of the fans (jokingly) assumed that these characters are the same people from the previous series:

** The phrases "ganbaruby" and "Kowareyasuki" (from Guilty Kiss' second single) suffer from the same problem, in that they're both Japanese wordplay that portmanteaus two words together[[note]]"ganbaruby" is a combination of "ganbaru" and "Ruby", while "Kowareyasuki" is a combination of "kowareyasui" and "suki"[[/note]]. Translations resolve this by translating them into "I'll do my Rubesty!" and "Fragilove" respectively, which both mean similar things to the original Japanese. Interestingly, "Do your Rubesty!" was actually adopted by Fururin as the English version of her call and response.

** Hanamaru ends up DemotedToExtra and gets little to no CharacterFocus ''at all'' after the episode where she joins, reducing her to being a StraightMan for Yoshiko. Noticeably, despite one of her basic character conceits being that she's Ruby's best friend, their bond isn't addressed at all in Ruby's spotlight episodes late in the series, instead developing a relationship between Ruby and Leah.

** Hanamaru ends up DemotedToExtra and gets little to no CharacterFocus ''at all'' after the episode where she joins, joins Aqours, reducing her to being a StraightMan for Yoshiko. Noticeably, despite one of her basic character conceits being that she's Ruby's best friend, their bond isn't addressed at all in Ruby's spotlight episodes late in the series, instead developing a relationship between Ruby and Leah. Ironically, her relegation to being a background character is the exact reason she joined Aqours to avoid!


** You went this way ''hard'', especially in Season 2. She ends up being one of the least developed characters in the entire series, thanks to a combination of factors such as [[SpotlightStealingSquad the show pushing Riko's screentime at You's expense in Season 1]], lack of defined motivation for joining Aqours beyond wanting to do something together with Chika (which also makes her a SatelliteCharacter by extension), a minor CharacterFocus that ''accomplishes nothing'', and a straight up lack of meaningful screentime or dialogue in Season 2 (which lead to the fandom joke that "You is the new Kanan"). It says something when Saint Snow, the ''rival group'', not only gets a better CharacterFocus than her, but it actually gives them more character development than her.
