  • One of the abilities of Kikutsune's sound manipulation allows him to destroy people's clothes. Naturally, things become quite awkward when almost everyone either winds up half-naked with their clothes destroyed or completely in the nude. Whether this is good or bad is up to you to decide. Thankfully, Sarae fixes this later on.
  • Chapter 164. After having prevented a volcanic eruption and earned the adoration of the people, Hinohara is revealed to be the destined emperor chosen by Himeou, which only nets him more adoration. Kannagi doesn't deny this, but he tries to tell everyone to not forget him, the one who's been training Arata until this point.
  • Chapter 165. Hinohara is still recovering from their battle with Kikutsune, and Kannagi suggests that he strips to make it easier for Kotoha to heal him.
    Kannagi: Maybe if you strip the treatment will have more effect. Hoo-hoo, maybe even that part of you that hasn't been injured will become a little bit more lively as a result?
    Yataka: Vulgar man...
    Kannagi: What, Yataka? Even if you can't *beep* then at least laugh at the joke!
    Yataka: A gentleman would never laugh at such a joke!
    Kotoha: You two please be quiet!

Hinohara and Yataka run in, and when they discover their newly found assets, Kannagi accuses them of not listening to his warnings. Then Mikusa, Kotoha and Nasake come in...
    Hinohara: Yataka... you have breasts.
    Yataka: Wait, Arata! Look at yourself!
    Hinohara:(looks down at himself) NOOOOOOO! MOM!
    Yataka: (In hysterics) Arata, I'm the same as you!The thing we should have, we don't have it! The thing we shouldn't have, we have it!
    Kannagi: That's why I was telling you to not come closer!
    Yataka and Hinohara: You didn't! You were just watching quietly!
  • When they're on the Island of Children, the kids ask Hinohara to tell them a story (and mentioning that neither Kanate or Kannagi would be any good because they're 'useless'). He tells them "Little Red Riding Hood", and when he's about halfway through, he sees that both Kannagi and Kanate have joined the kids and are listening to the story, and adding their own commentary.
    Hinohara:The wolf disguised itself as Little Red Riding Hood and went in her place, and when he got there, he ate her grandmother.
    Kannagi: The old bat couldn't tell the difference between a wolf and her own grandaughter?
    Hinohara: Next, the wolf disguised itself as the grandmother...
    Kanate: That wolf! How lame, he'll be discovered so easily!... (laughing hysterically) What, so Little Red Riding hood got eaten too? Like mother like granddaughter!

    The children: Be quiet!
    Hinohara:You're the fools!
