Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: The last spy to join the team is Chise, a Japanese girl who moved to London. In the visual novel ''VisualNovel/Lucid9'', Rachel Messer, Chise's English VA will voice Elizabeth Oshiro, a Brit living in Japan. ([[ScheduleSlip Assuming the voice patch comes out.]])


* FanPreferredCouple: Most of the fanfics and fan-art about the series pairs Ange and Princess Charlotte together. It helps that both the story and promotional materials paint both of them as being very AmbiguouslyGay.



** The end of Episode Two reveals that Ange and Charlotte knew each other. Ange purposely sabotaged the mission to assassinate Charlotte, so she could simultaneously save Charlotte's life and make her an 'ally' to the people she works for at the same time. She put a great deal of planning and took a number of risks that would have put her life in danger for the sake of Charlotte.
** The dialogue between Ange and Charlotte at the start of episode 3 is... suspicious, to say the least. "Let's run away together". "There is a white house waiting for us in Casablanca". And worst of all, "With the Wall gone, we can be together and it won't matter who knows it".
** By episode Six it's getting hard to believe that the writers aren't doing this intentionally.
--->'''Princess:''' ''I want to stop having to hide our relationship, Charlotte."
** Episode Eight goes into their origin story showcasing how they became good friends quickly and why they are so devoted to each other.
** Episode Eleven has Ange state in her internal monologue that despite losing everything, she kept fighting and wanting to meet the Princess again is what helped keep her fighting.
** In Episode twelve the Princess leaves Ange a message which starts with "My turtle dove". In case you don't know, turtle doves are a symbol of devoted love (romantic, usually).
** One of the last shots of the first season is Ange and Charlotte holding hands as they relax on the beach. Earlier that episode, there's a long, emotional scene of Ange [[BridalCarry Bridal Carrying]] Charlotte, ending with the latter saying she will "break the wall around [Ange's] heart."
** Ange's ImageSong is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=290ZBZQe5z8 "Take Me Up Higher"]] and Charlotte's is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXSGbJTnFh0 "Into The Sky."]] The other characters' image songs have no obvious connections.

%%* * BaseBreakingCharacter: Beatrice, you Beatrice. You either love her for being the team's [[TheHeart moral compass]], having a [[VoiceChangeling useful ability for espionage]] and being the closest thing the main cast has to a normal person or hate her. her for not being as badass as the other girls.



* TheScrappy: Beatrice. While all the others girls are badass, interesting spies, Beatrice is a standard squeaking moeblob. Even her voice changing trick hasn't warmed her to many fans.


*** Turns out the [=OST=] version of 'Moonlight Melody' is a ''duet'' sung by Dorothy and Beatrice, making the potential romantic undertones of the song much more prominent.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The soundtrack being by Music/YukiKajiura, pretty much all of it qualifies, but special mention must go to the OP, "The Other Side of the Wall".

** And then there are those who only saw the ''title'', assumed it was some kind of high school romantic comedy, and dismissed it instantly without ever seeing so much as a single image.


* SpiritualSuccessor: When people found out about the spy elements, many comparisons to Creator/ProductionIG's adaptation of ''Literature/JokerGame'' surfaced. Some people went as far to say that the series served as ''Joker Game'''s cute girl-themed DistaffCounterpart.

* CreatorProvincialism: Some fans consider Chise to run afoul of this. On one hand, she actually encounters a fair deal of culture shock and gets discriminated against as a foreigner, as well as actually being a WildCard spy for her home country. On the other hand, other fans consider her being Japanese as nothing but PanderingToTheBase since the role could have been pulled off just as well with a character from any other sufficiently foreign country.


88 Quite a few fans think Dorothy and Beatrice have some LesYay going on between them. Certainly there is solid chemistry between the pair, especially in episodes 6 and 10.

* TaintedByThePreview: From early promotional material, ''Princess Principal'' looked like a "cute girls doing cute things" SliceOfLife show that just happens to be set in steampunk Victorian London. It's [[AnimeFirst an original anime]] with [[NonindicativeName a misleading title]], so there wasn't much to counter that assumption. Nobody could have expected the show getting into serious, hardcore spy intrigue in just the first episode.
