1* AmericansHateTingle: While the manga was never a smash hit in Japan, it was ''deeply'' unpopular in North America, to the point where the translated version was unceremoniously dropped after only a few volumes, presumably due to dismal sales. Even after gaining a new publisher, it's extremely obscure.* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Even people who like this admit the premise sounds ''deeply'' uncomfortable. Mentioning it in YuriGenre circles is considered outright trolling.* BaseBreakingCharacter: ** Kanako is either a poor little woobie who is hit with lots of undeserved misfortune, or a perverted moron who never learns how to not bring said misfortune on herself.** Mariya is either a hilarious troll who manages to fool everyone in an all-girls school or just a sadistic jerkass.* CoveredUp: The cover of "Kimi Ni Mune Kyun" that serves as the anime's ending theme is far better known than [[ the original 1983 version]] by Music/YellowMagicOrchestra.* MemeticMutation: That one scene from the OP, where Mariya rips open Matsurika's top. It has been re-done/photoshopped with ''countless'' other fandoms. Ditto the shot of Mariya playing Matsurika like a guitar. * SuspiciouslySimilarSong: One of "The Final Countdown" plays during some shocking moments.* ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs: It's pretty much ''[[LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru Marimite]]'' on crack and acid, except for the small detail of being intentionally alienating to the YuriGenre audience.* TheWoobie: Kanako. Especially when the abuse and misfortune she suffers goes too far.----
