Yes, you just read the title correctly.

The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, Really Love You (original literal Japanese title: Kimi no Koto ga Dai Dai Dai Dai Dai Sukina 100-ri) is a serialized manga written by Nakamura Rikito and illustrated by Nozawa Yukiko in Weekly Young Jump. The first chapter debuted on January 5th, 2020.

Rentarou Aijou has experienced 100 heartbreaks in his short life. While praying in a shrine, the God of Love appears, saying that due to a clerical error Rentarou will meet 100 soul mates in high school. However, anyone who fails to fall in love with their soulmate will lose all luck and die a tragic death. Now it's a matter of love or death, and it's up to Rentarou to decide.

Seven Seas Entertainment have licensed the series for English release starting February 2022.

So, these are the tropes of a wealthy family...

    open/close all folders 

    A-C 
  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: Hakari's mother, Hahari, had her when she was 13 (via artificial insemination). Granted, that raises further questions...
  • Abusive Parents:
    • Though it's never straight-up said that the woman yelling at a younger Shizuka and calling her a freak was her mother, it's pretty clear that’s the case, since she blamed Shizuka for being “creepy” and Shizuka cowered before her on the verge of tears. She is by far the most hated character despite appearing in only two panels.
    • Hahari becomes this when she finds out her daughter is in a relationship, forbidding her to ever leave the house and threatening to have her boyfriend killed. However, she quickly does a Heel–Face Turn when she becomes one of Rentarou’s soulmates.
    • Mei's parents abandoned her after destroying her self esteem to the point where she no longer felt her life was worth anything.
    • Naddy's parents would lock her in the storehouse for making mistakes, and when she adopted a more American-style look, with dyed blonde hair and an "I Love America" T-shirt, they kicked her out of the house and forbade her from ever returning.
  • The Ace: Rentarou sought to better himself to avoid his frequent romantic rejections. By the time he enters high school he has excellent grades, communication skills, style, kindness, and athleticism.
  • A-Cup Angst: Karane will often lament about her small bust, especially compared to Hakari.
  • Adult Fear: Meme's parents experienced this when their infant daughter disappeared for the first time. Both of them were terrified until they found her.
  • Adults Dressed as Children: Hahari's idea of a "freedom outfit" is to dress as a high schooler.
  • Affectionate Parody: Of typical harem manga.
  • All Women Are Lustful:
    • In chapter 21, the girls are trying to peep on Rentarou bathing, with the exception of Shizuka who tries to block their way. The others tie her up in a blanket, and somehow she makes her way to the bathroom where she sees Rentarou naked and passes out from Nosebleed.
    • In chapter 54, Chiyo asks the girls to refrain from kissing Rentarou at school. All of them can barely handle it and eventually stage a protest.
  • Ambiguously Bi: A lot of the girls have shown attraction to at least one of the other girls at one point or another. For some it's just a basic acknowledgement of the beauty and cuteness of the others, but others have also shown very explicit Homoerotic Subtext.
  • Ambulance Cut: In Chapter 27, the Gorira Alliance attempt to finish a ramen-eating contest after already having had gorged on a ton of food from earlier in the competition. The next panel shows them being taken away by ambulances.
  • And I Must Scream: Chapter 11 involves all the at the time current girlfriends (except Kusuri) becoming "zombies" who only care about kissing Rentarou to the exclusion of everything else, even rational thought.
  • Animal Motifs: Mei is repeatedly compared to a dog, with how eagerly and excitedly she obeys her master's commands.
  • Anti-Climax: After Rentarou and Mei lock eyes, Mei says that she cannot fall in love with him as it would be improper for a maid to fall in love with her master's boyfriend, complete with fake ending credits. The very next page, Hahari orders her to be Rentarou's girlfriend and she accepts.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap:
    • Karane gives Hakari one after the latter's suicide attempt.
    • Quali Tina, the girls' idol coach, gives one to Hahari in Chapter 62. Mei gives her one right back.
  • Art Shift: At the end of Chapter 41 the girlfriends' beautification efforts have turned them all into '70s shoujo characters.
  • Baby Morph Episode: Chapter 28 features the girls (except Hakari) turned into babies thanks to one of Kusuri's drugs (again).
  • Bad Liar:
  • Baseball Episode: Rentarou's family joins Sutou Iku's baseball club to prevent it from being shut down after all the other members went to America for training. If they can win the next practice game against Jurassic High, the club is saved.
  • Batman Gambit: Rentarou pulls one off in Chapter 25. In an eating contest in which the preliminary round has the contestants eat rice and various side dishes, but only the eaten rice counts towards one’s team’s score, he deliberately taunts Kurumi with a beef bowl, knowing that she won’t be able to resist it. Her reaction is so over-the-top, of course, that the other contestants are all tempted to go for the side dishes instead of the blander rice, allowing Rentarou and Kurumi to make it to the next round by eating nothing but that. Of course, had the other teams ignored them, he’d have put his team at a disadvantage.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Rentarou wishes for a girlfriend; he gets one hundred of them.
  • Berserk Button:
    • If anyone says anything remotely negative about one of his girlfriends, Rentarou flies into a rage and has to be restrained.
    • Picking on Shizuka is this for the whole harem. Someone doing so in chapter 35 causes all of them to become blonde and get a massive power up.
  • Big Damn Kiss: These happen a lot over the course of the manga between Rentarou and his many girlfriends. They're always presented as epic moments, too, despite their frequency.
  • Big Fancy House: Hakari lives in one, much to Rentarou's surprise when she is placed under house arrest by her mother.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Rentarou has thick black eyebrows.
  • Blackmail: Toruru Kijineta uses photos of Hahari's amorous interactions to blackmail Hahari into leting her continue harassing Meme for photos of her.
  • Bland-Name Product: Bocky sticks, and a 6-11 shows up in Chapter 24.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Chiyo can't see well without her glasses, and the stress of it is enough to make her bawl her eyes out.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Done with enough regularity to make you think there's No Fourth Wall at all.
    • When Rentarou repeats the God of Love's important words in his head three times, the latter calls the former out on wasting panels.
    • On his first day of school, Rentarou says that they won't make the readers wait another page, "so sense of reality ain't worth a damn".
    • Rentarou carries a backpack that has anything he could possibly need on a date. Karane points out how ridiculously convenient it is.
    • Hakari is so happy at drawing the winning chopstick that she accidentally reverses her words and thoughts, which Karane comments on.
    • Once Rentarou kisses Hakari, Karane and Shizuka for the first time, the three express their desire to have a good relationship with him, all in the same last panel of the chapter and with the same phrase except for the end, to which he comments that the girls "sure know how to jam-pack [their] endings".
    • There's plenty of instances where the characters say (mostly with one-liners that never get argued though) what kind of manga this one should be as a sort of tsukkomi answer.
    • Hakari points out when the manga has run for three volumes, and in the same conversation Nano says that’s six months of real time.
    • In Chapter 25, the mangakas decided that the readers would be bored with exposition, so the artist drew two panels of the announcer (not one of the harem) in dripping, sexy clothes. The announcer promptly asks what the hell is up with that background.
    • Chapter 34 has several in succession. Karane complains that Iku joins the harem only two chapters after Mei did, to which Nano comments about the pacing, and later on, when Rentarou is wearing nothing but a loincloth, Nano muses that the story has gone Off the Rails.
    • In Chapter 39, when Rentarou finds out that his offhand guess that Nano was the only girl to outdo Mimimi in beauty was correct, he apologizes to the readers for the unwitting spoiler and begs them not to drop the series.
    • In Chapter 46, Rentarou figures out that Meme was hiding in the Vice Principal's hair because her head's design was much bigger than normal. Hakari comments that the Vice Principal is a Recurring Extra who doesn't get drawn often, so they didn't notice.
    • Rentarou calls out their publishing company in Chapter 51, after getting the Love at First Sight shock with his cousin Chiyo, who's in her first year of junior high.
      Rentarou: Is this even...? Are you really okay with this, Shueisha!?
    • It continues into Chapter 52, where after Chiyo introduces herself to the other girlfriends, an angry Karane asks if Rentarou realizes all the things wrong with this. A sweating Rentarou says that as long as they're still being published, they're probably in the clear (with a footnote saying the author's ready to dump all the blame on Shueisha the moment the need arises).
    • Also in Chapter 52, Chiyo and Nano get into an argument about the existence of heaven. Chiyo pulls out the manga volume with the Baby Morph Episode and points out Rentarou being taken away by angels, causing Nano to go into a Heroic BSoD for the rest of the chapter over the lack of realism.
    • Chapter 53 removes the wall altogether in order to plug series merch, with Rentarou expressing his hope that Iku, Mimimi, Meme and Chiyo get merch if the current round of merch sells well enough, and the girls expressing their desire for merch featuring Rentarou.
  • Brick Joke:
    • The start of Chapter 29 shows the Vice Principal chasing after an ostrich that escaped from the zoo; the very end of the chapter reveals that she had been kicked in the head unconscious by said ostrich.
    • One of the first drugs Kusuri uses on Rentarou is the blood magnetization drug, which Kusuri mentions would cause two people to attach upside down from one another if they each drink the same polarity dose. In chapter 61, Kusuri splashes two men harassing her, Shizuka, and Chiyo with said drug, with both men drinking enough of the drug that they get stuck together in the aforementioned upside down position.
  • Bridal Carry:
    • Rentarou carries Nano like this in Chapter 26, while helping her off of the platform she has gotten stuck on.
    • Iku carries Rentarou like this in Chapter 60, when he is too exhausted to walk home.
  • Briefcase Full of Money: Hahari apparently keeps these on hand at all times. She gives one to Kusuri when playing pretend, much to the envy/astonishment of the other girls (the cash blows away in the wind).
  • Buxom Is Better: Hakari often brags about her G-cup chest to get on Karane's nerves. She becomes deeply frustrated when Meme is revealed to have an even bigger chest.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: Takeko Deluxe cheats an eating contest by dressing up a machine to store all of the food, letting her eat without end. In the last round, her machine gets full and she's forced to use her own stomach, but it isn't enough and she loses while barfing like crazy.
  • Chekhov's Gun: In Chapter 11, Kusuri gives Shizuka a drug that causes Shizuka to grow rabbit ears. Shizuka uses the same drug in Chapter 42 to lure away the strands of Hahari's hair.
  • Chemistry Can Do Anything: Kusuri's various drugs, from reversing aging to body swapping to giving Prehensile Hair.
  • Chick Magnet: The very premise of this series is that Rentarou is an extreme example of this, having 100 soulmates.
  • Cliffhanger: Chapter 14, "The Holy War of Love and the Soul", ends with Hakari asking Rentarou to break up with her. We don’t learn till the next chapter that this is because her mother is prohibiting her from ever seeing her friends again.
  • Clothing Damage:
    • Kusuri's "become even sexier" drug causes Hakari's clothes to melt off of her body.
    • The Tyranno Cannon Full Burst is such a powerful fastball pitch that not only do Iku's clothes blow off in the wind when she hits it, but Rentarou is left in his underwear just from catching it. Fortunately, undergarments are unaffected.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Subverted. Kusuri just happens to have a special drug that allows people to see infrared, which is just what the gang needs to get past the infrared alarms in Hakari's house and help her escape - but it turns out Kusuri had the drug on her because she was actually planning on mailing it to a company that specialises in making drugs, in the hopes of becoming employed by the company and going to America to make drugs there. The others are shocked that she's giving up this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help them rescue Hakari.
  • Crash-Into Hello: How Rentarou meets Hakari and Karane.
  • Credits Gag:
    • A fake end-of-chapter caption is shown when Rentarou gets captured by zombie-Nano, declaring the end of the series... but the fake credits ask what's going to happen on the next page.
    • A similar cliffhanger happens with Mei declaring she cannot be Rentarou's girlfriend. The next and final page has Hahari order Mei to do it and the problem is suddenly gone.
    • When the world gets covered in Hahari's hair, the end-of-chapter caption declares it's the end of the series and invites readers to look forward to the creators' next projects. The credits, however, point out this is the first chapter of volume 6.
    • When Rentarou confesses to Meme, she gets so embarrassed she disappears. The captions on the next page say "It was the last time that anyone would see her ever again. She was the one person he couldn't save..." and the end-of-chapter credits announce that the series will now be retitled "The 99 Girlfriends Who...". Rentarou, of course, is having none of this and rips the previous pages out.
    • After the girls put on an amateur idol show for a school festival, they get scouted by a producer and the credits announce that the "Idol Road Arc" is about to begin. Then the producer states that as idols, they will be forbidden from romance. The next page has them immediately walking out of the room, and the credits announce the end of the "Idol Road Arc".
  • Creepy Child: Shizuka’s mother apparently thinks she is one because she doesn’t speak aloud, calling her this trope by name to her face. Neither the other characters nor the readers agree.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: During the baseball arc, villainous pitcher Terano specializes in overwhelming fastballs, which have such force that any batter who tries to swing the bat at them will wind up badly injured. The Ohananomistu team realizes the ball travels the same path every time and they can easily bunt it, allowing even weak team members to score bases.
  • Cute Mute: Deconstructed with Shizuka, whose shyness causes her not to speak aloud but instead point out all her lines from a book, which caused people to shun her as a freak, which made her more shy, in a vicious cycle.
  • Cuteness Overload:
    • Happens frequently to Rentarou when his girlfriends get flirty.
    • Happens to the whole cast when they see Rentarou cross-dressing during the slumber party.
    • Hahari is especially prone to it whenever the shorter family members do something cute.
    • Exaggerated when the group goes to Karaoke. Kusuri doses everyone with a "super sensitive to cuteness" drug, at which point Shizuka singing is enough to affect them like hurricane-force winds.

    D-G 
  • Dandere: Shizuka. Her voice is so quiet she decides to communicate by pointing to passages in her favorite book. Rentarou makes her a text-to-speech phone app so she can look people in the eye when speaking.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Terano of the Opposing Sports Team can only use her ultimate fastball, the Tyranno Cannon Full Burst, once per game, because any more and she'd dislocate her shoulder. She saves it for when it's the bottom of the ninth with two strikes and two outs, and it'll all be over no matter what after this pitch.
  • Date Crêpe: In Chapter 61, Rentarou and three of his girlfriends (Shizuka, Kusuri and Chiyo) treat themselves to crepes after their shopping trip.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: The entire cast. See this trope page and the Characters page for more information.
  • Deconstructive Parody: This manga thrives on Deconstructed Character Archetype, yet it is also a Gag Series at the same time.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Nano. Her meeting Rentarou taught her there was more to life than being perfectly efficient, and she is learning to care for others.
  • Denser and Wackier: This manga already starts out far crazier and sillier than typical harem series, then the craziness only intensifies as the manga goes on and adds more girlfriends.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: We see a flashback to what is very likely the exact moment Hakari’s father died, when he is consoling Hahari, asking her to not give up on love after he is gone, and she is holding his hand. Then he smiles as the sun sets behind him. No wonder Hahari is so messed up...
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Nano and Hakari have a hard time giving Rentarou CPR because they lose their concentration when doing mouth to mouth.
  • Don't Try This at Home:
    • When Nano shoves sushi down her throat without chewing it, there is a quick editor’s note saying, "Unless your throat is made of a special alloy, please do not imitate this."
    • Also, Chapter 39 opens with Hahari, Mei and Kusuri hanging out and drinking from wine glasses. Since the latter two are under Japan's drinking age, the caption at the bottom says that the manga does not condone underage drinking, but that Mei is drinking grape juice and Kusuri has a strong drug. So underage drinking is bad, but drug use is A-OK.
    • Chapter 58 warns people against placing themselves in People Jars.
    • In Chapter 61, Rentarou uses two shopping carts as makeshift weapons to frighten two guys who are threatening Shizuka, Kusuri and Chiyo. A caption at the bottom of the panel tells people not to try it at home, unless someone important to them is about to be killed.
  • Double Entendre: This exchange from Chapter 27:
    Announcer: It’s like they’re D*sons!
    Karane: What’re ya tryin’ to say? That they’re vacuums that don’t lose their suction?
  • Down to the Last Play: Done twice in one game! First, Rentarou's family are down by six, so the mercy rule will cause the game to end early and them to lose if, after the next inning, they give up any more runs. Shizuka makes an error that gives the other team three runs, which causes her to run to the dugout crying and her teammates to go Super Smitten. They are able to pull off a miracle rally entirely through bunting, and manage to lower the opponents' lead to three runs by the bottom of the ninth, with two outs. Then they manage to load the bases in time for Iku to hit a grand slam, winning the match.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Iku after non-tsundere!Karane paddles her with a baseball bat, making her the first girl to want Karane back to her old self.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Tsundere Only Sane Man Karane and extremely thirsty Covert Pervert Hakari are the most normal members of the cast... because the others are like this:
    • Rentarou is a Love Freak who'll do damn near anything to ensure his girlfriends are happy, even if it costs him his life.
    • Shizuka is a shy Cute Mute who communicates with quotes from her favorite books, and was shunned and abused for it.
    • Nano represses her emotions in the name of utility and efficiency.
    • Kusuri is so obsessed with the drugs she makes she keeps getting herself and everyone around her into trouble.
    • Hahari serves as her daughter Hakari's foil, illustrating where being so blinded by emotion can lead; she's an Absurdly Youthful Mother who fell so deeply for her terminally ill first love at the age of 13, she decided to have his child via artificial insemination to have someone to remember him by, but was still left deeply traumatized when he passed away, and turned Knight Templar Parent in Hakari's defense. She's also even more thirsty than Hakari.
    • Kurumi is a perpetually-hungry Big Eater who gets angry when hungry, causing her to lash out at others and drive them away, and hates herself for it.
    • Mei was abused and abandoned by her parents, which essentially destroyed any and all value she placed on her life. She will do anything her masters order her to, no matter what she suffers as a result.
    • Iku is a masochistic Determinator who'll work herself to exhaustion for what she cares about.
    • Mimimi is obsessed with beauty, her own first and foremost.
    • Meme is so shy she can't stand people looking at her, and has perfected the art of hiding when she gets too embarrassed.
    • Chiyo has a form of Super OCD which means that whenever she sees something that's not orderly, she's possessed by the urge to put it back in place.
    • Naddy is a reverse Occidental Otaku whose obsession led her Abusive Parents to forbid her from ever coming back to the family house.
    • Subverted with Yamame: while she was teased for her large body, causing her to hate herself, she found pride in it through protecting animals and plants.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Shizuka and Nano make brief appearances in the first chapter.
  • Easily Forgiven: As soon as Hahari and Rentarou find out they’re soulmates, she lets them go and everyone forgets that she was keeping Hakari prisoner in her own home and tried to have Rentarou assassinated. Justified due to her backstory, in any case.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Takeko Deluxe the professional eater will refuse to participate in an eating contest if the food is too disgusting, calling it "an insult to food." Though it turns out she's just chickening out of tasting the ultra-hot curry.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Yes, the series is about someone who will eventually have 100 girlfriends.
  • Excuse Plot: While the series has Rentarou actively avoid breaking his girlfriends' hearts, the whole "if your soulmates are heartbroken, they'll die" clause that led to him going above and beyond for them only threatens to fulfill itself when Hakari attempts suicide when her mother tries to end her relationship with Rentarou. And if a girlfriend does initially reject Rentarou, it's either because they haven't gotten shocked yet or because it turns out they secretly like being hurt.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Mei has kept her eyes shut for so long she has forgotten how to open them. It's also the reason why she doesn't become a soulmate for several chapters after her introduction, as she didn't look Rentarou in the eye. Despite that, she's able to drive a car.
  • Eye Scream: In the second chapter, Rentarou first gets a cookie, and then a Bocky stick, accidentally jammed into his right eye by Karane.
    Rentarou: (You got a grudge against my right eye or something...!!!?)
  • Fictional Document: Shizuka is a fan of "Circlet Love Story", a romance novel about a princess named Io and her beloved knight Kamacle. When Rentarou confesses his love to her, she sees herself as the princess and him as the knight.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • Hakari claims in chapter 2 that her household checks body temperature through kissing. After finding out what her mom is like, she may not have entirely made it up as an excuse to kiss Rentarou.
    • The trope name is mentioned in Chapter 58, when Shizuka hopes that Hahari's remark about letting herself be taken in by a cute police officer upon seeing Chiyo's "freedom outfit" is not an example of the trope itself.
  • For Want of a Nail: Kusuri forgetting her bento one day triggers a sequence of events that culminates in Rentarou and his family saving the baseball club from being disbanded.
    • Rentarou gives Kusuri his bento and goes to the store to replace his meal, where he meets his 7th girlfriend.
    • Said girlfriend is a Big Eater, so Rentarou signs up the family for an eating contest to break in the new girlfriend.
    • In the aftermath of the eating contest, the girls have put on considerable weight, leading them to secretly working out.
    • By the time the girls realize their struggles with their exercise regime, Rentarou has acquired two new girlfriends, one of whom is the president of the baseball club, which is facing disbandment due to all the other members studying abroad.
    • Desperate to shed the extra pounds without raising suspicions, the other girls agree to help save the baseball club.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Courtesy of one of Kusuri's drugs in Chapter 23.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Yamame can make plants bloom just by holding them, and constantly has butterflies and squirrels on or around her.
  • Funny Background Event: A Running Gag in the series is someone having a fainting spell that involves their spirit leaving their body, whereupon a fellow haremette has to slam the spirit back into the body.
  • Gag Series: Along with having No Fourth Wall, this manga parodies the harem genre and its tropes.
  • Game Face: The characters get these whenever they set out to enter a competition as "Rentarou's Family". Iku makes such a face almost all the time, except when utterly exhausted.
  • Gentle Giant: Yamashiki Yamame is a head taller than Rentarou and a friend to all living things. Her name literally means "Kindness Mountain Woman".
  • God Is Flawed: The whole situation is due to the God of Love being distracted by anime.
  • Gone Horribly Right: The volume 5 extras reveal that Iku's older brother didn't want her to develop a quitter's mentality after being exhausted with baseball, so he told her that the fact that she worked hard and had the muscle ache to show for it meant she was improving. Iku then starts associating pain with goodness, and later, pleasure, to the point where she starts using the family fan to hit herself.
  • Gonk: The Vice Principal and the Gorira Alliance.
  • Groin Attack: In Chapter 47, Rentarou mentions that the chastity belt he is wearing will tear his groin to shreds if he starts getting erect.

    H-K 
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: Kurumi wears big headphones to avoid hearing anything that would trigger her food obsession.
  • Here We Go Again!: Chapter 24 ends with Kurumi craving yet another kind of Japanese food.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Chapters 42 and 43, each of the (at the time) current girlfriends (except Hahari) perform non-lethal sacrifices while escaping from Hahari's tentacle hair:
    • First Kurumi pushes Mei out of the way of the hair strands, and gets caught.
    • Then Kusuri throws herself at the strands (after giving Shizuka the rest of her drugs) in order to buy time for the others to escape.
    • Then Hakari pushes Karane out of the way of the strands and is ensnared.
    • Then Karane and Iku get out of the car the group is using to escape in order to push it to safety. Karane is able to help Iku escape by hitting her with a baseball bat and causing her to land on the roof of the car, but is unable to escape herself.
    • Then Iku grabs hold of the strands in order to clear a path for the others and is caught.
    • Then Mei and Shizuka lure the strands away from Rentarou, Nano and Mimimi by having Shizuka drink a drug that gives her rabbit ears, causing the strands to target her because of her cuteness (although this ends up subverted when they appear just fine in the next chapter).
    • And finally, Nano and Mimimi stay behind to distract the strands from Rentarou, who is escaping so that he can find and help Hahari.
  • Homoerotic Subtext: While most of the girlfriends are solely in love with Rentarou while simply being close friends with each other, there are a few who show an equal amount of love for at least one of other girlfriends.
    • Hakari and Karane
      • In chapter two, they agree to share their first kiss with Rentarou together.
      • When the two are affected by Kusuri's "Kiss the person you love most potion" in chapter 12, Rentarou is able to escape them by getting them to kiss each other instead, which implies they love each other as much as they do Rentarou.
      • They also made out in their sleep together in chapter 22, though they both dreamed they were kissing Rentarou.
      • There's also a small line in chapter 28 where Hakari claims that she and Karane agreed to just stay friends when a babified Karane starts sucking on her chest, though that was in reference to a dream she had.
      • In chapter 29, after watching Kusuri in her older form "defeat" Karane by smothering her with her breasts, Hakari takes note of the technique's effectiveness and claims she'll try it herself. When Shizuka asks whether she's talking about trying it on Rentarou or Karane, Hakari answers both.
      • In chapter 30, Hakari forces Karane to kiss Hahari in an attempt to get Mei to open her eyes. Karane is completely against the idea until she notices that Hahari smells exactly like Hakari, after which she decides to go through with it, only for Hakari to jealously stop them from kissing at the last moment. Ren then lampshades how obviously jealous Hakari was, much to her embarrassment.
      • They kiss again in chapter 41 while reeling from kissing Rentarou under the effect of the Kiss Enhancing Lip Balm.
      • In chapter 54, the "Kiss the person you love most drug" is taken by both of them again, and the force of them clinging to each other is enough to pin a super-strength Chiyo.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In Chapter 30:
    Hahari: Meido may occasionally be diligent to an outright dangerous degree...
    Kusuri: What would you do if you were asked to drink potassium cyanide, yep?
    Mei: I would pour it down the hatch.
    Nano: You seem pretty much like an android.
    Karane: You're not one to talk.
    • In the first chapter, Rentarou is shocked that Hakari and Karane have spent four hours looking for a pink four-leafed clover, even though he himself spent the same amount of time looking for a teacher's contact lenses. In the same chapter, Karane scoffs at Rentarou for believing the school rumour that confessing one's love while holding a pink four-leaf clover will guarantee a successful confession, even though both she and Hakari spent four hours the previous day looking for pink clovers before confessing to Rentarou.
    • When Rentarou's cousin Chiyo is added into the harem and he explains that he got his uncle's blessing for it, Hahari is shocked that a parent would let his underaged daughter be a part of something like this.
    • In Chapter 48, Hakari scolds Hahari for wanting to smooch the currently not-tsundere Karane, claiming that it would be going too far, but is perfectly happy to let Karane grope her breasts.
  • Idiosyncratic Cover Art: Each tankobon cover features two of the girls in the order they became Rentarou's girlfriends, with Kusuri's dual forms counting as two for this (so vol. 1 is Hakari and Karane, vol. 2 is Shizuka and Nano, vol. 3 is Kusuri's dual forms, vol. 4 is Hahari and Kurumi, etc.).
  • I'm a Humanitarian: In Chapter 56, Rentarou dreams about Kurumi eating him.
  • Indirect Kiss: Hakari attempts to invoke this in the first chapter, when she convinces Rentarou to drink half of the can of juice he brought for her. It fails because she accidentally spills the juice down herself.
  • Ironic Echo: Two cases involving Kurumi:
    • Rentarou first meets Kurumi at the school store despite her attending the middle school and not his high school, to which she says, “there’s no rule that says a middle schooler can’t go to the high school side store.” Later, when she is searching all over the place for fried egg on toast, she sees Rentarou at her school store, and when she objects, he says, “there’s no rule that says a high schooler can’t go to the middle school side store.”
    • Kurumi and Hakari are paired off during baseball practice, and when Kurumi's pitch hits Hakari in the chest, she yells at her, "How exactly are you catching it?!" Hakari throws it back and it lands on the ground, and Kurumi becomes reminded of the chocolate baseballs she used to eat as a kid, getting her so hungry that she lies on the ground and bites into the baseball, causing Hakari to retort the same thing.
  • "Just Joking" Justification: Hahari claims that asking Rentarou to go out with her was just a "mom joke". She's lying.
  • Kiss of Life: Inverted when Rentarou falls unconscious at the pool. Nano and Hakari's attempts at mouth-to-mouth turn into regular kissing and they need to find someone else to do it.
  • Kuudere: Eiai, who is obsessed with efficiency and rarely smiles. The other characters liken her to an Artificial Intelligence ("A.I." having the same pronunciation as "Eiai").

    L-O 
  • Lap Pillow: The girls take turns letting Rentarou use their laps as pillow in Chapter 56, ultimately cumulating in using all their laps to make a bed for him. He ends the chapter dreaming that his lap is serving as a pillow for all the girls.
  • Lie Detector: Hahari uses one in Chapter 18 in order to confirm that Rentarou's feelings for Hakari are genuine.
  • Literal Metaphor: Rentarou thinks that he'll die from rejection; the 100 girls will actually die should he reject them or be separated.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: As promised by the title of the series!
  • Long Title: Well, just look at it!
  • Love at First Sight: The God of Love describes meeting your soulmate as a shock running through your body and falling in love so hard that it hurts. Sure enough, it happens when Rentarou meets Hakari and Karane, as well as the other girls.
  • Love Freak: Rentarou. He says he first fell in love at eight-months old, was rejected 100 times before high school, and his favorite hobby is reading romance books. In his own words, each girl he meets is like discovering a new oil well full of love.
  • Love Potion: Kusuri gives Rentarou tea spiked with love potion when they first meet. He's so disgusted at the thought of confessing his feelings under the influence of a drug that he tries to vomit it out.
  • Maid: Mei Meido. Patient, diligent, and obedient to a fault.
  • Makes Just as Much Sense in Context: At the end of Chapter 34, Rentarou strips down to nothing but a loincloth in order to give encouragement to Iku during baseball practice. Everyone else is stunned, and then the next chapter starts with everyone at the game and Rentarou fully dressed, as if the incident had never happened.
  • Marry Them All: The Tag Line is "the harem comedy with new discoveries and zero losing heroines", after all.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's possible that Rentarou really did speak to Hakari's dead father, or it may have just been a dream. But since this is a manga where gods exist and there is No Fourth Wall, realism is not an issue.
  • Meaningful Name: Takeko Deluxe has a hairstyle resembling a Takenoko, or bamboo shoot.
  • Medium Awareness: Happens a few times:
    • In the volume 4 extras, Mei tries to avoid doing anything by leaving the book altogether, and Rentarou tears through the pages to follow her.
    • Rentarou rips the previous pages out when the credits declare Meme is the one person he couldn't save in Chapter 45.
    • Rentarou disposes of a narration box wondering if Yamame's a Laputian robot in Chapter 64.
  • Meganekko:
    • Kusuri in her older form. The splash page for Chapter 11 shows Hakari, Karane, Shizuka and Nano also putting on glasses.
    • Chiyo wears them, along with twin braids to complete the class president look.
  • Modesty Towel: Rentarou wears one when bathing, just in case things get... unwholesome.
  • Ninja Log: Meme can do this, using a stuffed doll instead of a log. It's a reflex whenever she feels embarrassed or nervous, and Rentarou has to break her out of doing it constantly after he confesses to her.
  • No Fourth Wall: For starters, the characters are quite aware that they are in a manga:
    God of Love: (to Rentarou) Stop repeating what I just said! You've been doing that for a while now! YOU'RE JUST WASTING PANELS!!! It's already bad enough that we've got tons of things that need to be drawn for the first chapter!!
  • The Nothing After Death: After the ghost of Hakari's father moves on, he winds up in a black void, as seen in his next appearance. He doesn't seem to mind.
  • Not What It Looks Like: During the slumber party, Hahari takes Rentarou to her bedroom for some "private time", complete with moaning and sighing. The others go to investigate and find Hahari dressing up Rentarou in a schoolgirl outfit, which she finds unbearably cute and he finds embarassing.
  • Ocular Gushers: The normally uptight Chiyo will cry a river if she loses her glasses.
  • Offscreen Inertia: Iku's utter obsession with Training from Hell is shown to its fullest extent when, after the rest of the group heads home on account of it getting dark, she tells them that she's hanging back and getting a few more practice swings in. They think nothing of it, but when they arrive back at school the next day, they find her still on the baseball field swinging the bat around, and counting in the hundred thousands. She was there all night like it was nothing.
  • Only Six Faces: Becomes more obvious the more characters there are, and makes it difficult to tell them apart at times.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • When Rapko mocks Shizuka in order to throw her off her game, Shizuka is so upset that she actually uses her own voice when apologising.
    • The first sign that something is wrong with Karane is when she brushes off Kusuri being knocked into her instead of getting angry over it.
    • In Chapter 54, Shizuka is so fixated on kissing that she can't focus on the book she's trying to read.
  • Opposing Sports Team:
    • The Gorira Alliance, a group of many enormous women and one extremely feminine man, who appear in competitions against Rentarou and the girls. Hakari and Karane are surprised to see them the second time, not having expected they would ever show up again.
    • Jurassic High School is this for the baseball team, consisting of nine girls that all resemble and are named after dinosaurs. Their captain, Rapuko, likes picking on people's insecurities in order to get an advantage.
  • Out of Focus: Unfortunately, the huge cast means that not everyone can be developed all the time. Most of the girls get almost all their development during their debut arc, and thereafter are just there to deliver a few gags. However, there are attempts to avert this every so often.
  • Overly Long Name: As is eventually revealed through the name of Iku's baseball team, the school that the cast attends is "Ohananomitsu University Associate Senior High School". Chiyo's introduction reveals that there's also a junior high of identical naming.
  • Overprotective Dad: Hakari's father appears to Rentarou as a ghost with the intent to scare him. However, Rentarou's overwhelming decency and courtesy purifies Father in Law's soul and sends him to heaven against his wishes.

    P-R 
  • Page Three Stunna: Chapter 27 opens with a color picture of Hakari in a swimsuit for absolutely no reason.
  • Painting the Medium: Once when Rentarou is asked what he likes about each of his girlfriends, he makes a speech so long that it requires a double-page spread and tiny font to fit it all.
  • Pair the Spares: Rentarou gets away from zombified Hakari and Karane by making them kiss each other.
  • Paper Tiger: Hahari is uncompromising in protecting her daughter from what she thinks are villainous men. However the very instant she feels a twinge of love she becomes a squeeing mess.
  • Parental Marriage Veto: Hakari's mother refuses to let her see Rentarou again because she believes Hakari will inevitably suffer a broken heart dating someone who is dating four other girls at the same time. This gets more complicated when Rentarou makes eye contact with her and they feel the shock running through their bodies indicating that she is also one of his soulmates.
    • Inverted with Mei. Hahari simply orders her to be Rentarou's girlfriend after the two fall in love.
    • Also inverted with Chiyo, as her father Hiro is doing everything in his power to ensure she marries Rentarou.
  • Parlor Games: One of the extras for volume 6 depicts Kusuri and Mimimi playing Shiritori before falling asleep. Since the last words they say are their respective Verbal Tics, the only answers they can come up with all start with either 'P' or 'Y'.
  • People Jars: Kusuri uses this as an example of her "freedom outfit".
  • Phrase Catcher: Hahari and "The <blank> of a wealthy family!"
  • Playboy Bunny: Meme dresses as one in Chapter 55.
  • Plot Tailored to the Party: It seems a little too convenient that the girls sign up for the different rounds of the eating contest in just the right order to as to align with their respective skills, considering they don’t know the dishes ahead of time.
  • Plug 'n' Play Friends: All the girls become True Companions with the rest of the group within a chapter of joining the harem, even Hakari’s mom!
  • Primal Fear:
    • One of the few things that can break Nano's cool demeanor is her fear of heights.
    • Yamame has a fear of fire. Just smelling smoke is enough to make her play dead.
  • Pocket Protector: Rentarou fantasizes about this, using the wooden charms with his girlfriends' faces on them. Subverted in that he moved them out of the way because he doesn't want to put his girlfriends in danger and dies anyway.
  • The Power of Love: Parodied in Chapter 26. Kurumi is skeptical that the other girls are able to eat so much just by invoking this trope, and it turns out that Rentarou has to pet them till their stomachs calm down, lest they puke.
  • Prehensile Hair: Nano gets this briefly from drinking one of Kusuri's drugs. Hahari drinks the same drug in Chapter 42, but it reacts badly with the hair-growth drug she had previously consumed, and causes her hair to become large enough to consume the entire world.
  • Punny Name:
    • Aijou Rentarou (to use the original Japanese order)explanation 
    • Shizuka means “silence”.
    • Eiai Nano is likened to an Artificial Intelligence.
    • Hahari: "Haha" means mother in Japanese.
    • Meido, of course.
    • Iku's name, in the original order, is Sutou Iku... that is, "stoic". However, she isn't really all that stoic, being very excitable when it comes to baseball.
    • Kusuri's name is a homophone for "medicine", and the "yaku" part of her surname is another word for the same.
    • Iinda Chiyo is a pun for "Class President".
  • Questionable Consent: Defied. Rentarou refuses to accept a confession if he is under the influence of a drug or he thinks a girl isn't being honest about their feelings.
  • Recursive Canon: The manga and its creators exist independently of the characters in-universe, and the manga's available in bookshops.
  • Red Herring: Toruru Kijineta is given a full name and position in the school. The fact that her blackmail photos that include Rentarou don't have him looking at the camera, as well as Rentarou not knowing of said photos when they are first presented, suggests that Toruru would eventually become one of the girlfriends. But so far, nothing has come out of that.
  • Reference Overdosed: There are many, many Shout Outs, as listed below.

    S 
  • School Festival: One occurs in Chapter 63.
  • Screw Yourself: The cover of volume three has both of Kusuri's forms getting touchy-feely.
  • Shout-Out: A plethora of them, being a Gag Series and all:

    • The God of Love claims his mistake of adding two extra zeroes to Rentarou's soulmate count was when he distracted by watching Castle in the Sky.
      • In Chapter 24, Kurumi gets a craving for fried egg on toast after hearing people talk about Laputa, and the symbols for the Apple corporation and McDonald's are seen.

    • Rentarou claims that Kurumi's energy consumption rivals Kirby.
    • At the end of Chapter 25, Takeko Super-Deluxe's design is explicitly compared to someone "straight outta the One Piece world". And in Chapter 34, Kusuri tries to use three baseball bats at once, holding one in her mouth, like Zoro. She can be seen performing Zoro's "Oni Giri" in the next panel.

    • Chapter 29 shows a penguin character who bears resemblance to Tuxedo Sam (albeit with Big Ol' Eyebrows slapped on top).
    • In Chapter 35, the harem's rage over Shizuka being mocked causes them all to go Super Smitten. And in Chapter 38, Shizuka's singing, combined with Kusuri's "super-sensitive to cuteness" drug, sends everyone who hears it blasting into the far wall in a Yamcha-like crater from the Cuteness Overload.
      • The plan to restore Karane's "tsundere-ness" in Chapter 50 is explicitly compared to the Spirit Bomb, with Rentarou as the Goku and Karane as Majin Buu. Said plan's possible failure is correspondingly compared to Vegeta's "Dirty Fireworks". Hakari volunteers to be Chi-Chi, and Karane is compared to Majin Buu.
    • In Chapter 36, hitting the Tyranno Cannon Full Burst causes Iku's clothes (except for her underwear) to fly off in the wind, "just like in Shaolin Soccer!"
    • In Chapter 39, Rentarou mentions Anpanman when Mimimi claims that soiling her clothes would sap every ounce of strength from her body. A few panels later, he mentions Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and Princess Mononoke.
    • In Chapter 41, Rentarou's kiss causes Mimimi to suddenly appear naked on a sparkly background, and two of the other girls ask if this has become a cooking manga.
    • Rentarou compares Kusuri's "human magnetization" drug to something out of Doraemon.
    • In Chapter 46, Rentarou compares Hakari and Karane jumping out of a vaulting box to the opening of Sazae-san, and Karane compares Meme being pulled out of the Vice Principal's hair to Arrietty. Her misdirection powers are explicitly called out to be a tag on Tetsuya Kuroko's basketball abilities.
    • One of the plush toys Meme uses to evade is a Molcar.
    • The volume 5 extras have Pazu attempt to catch a girlfriend, only to be intercepted by Rentarou. In the same extras, the God of Love wears sunglasses, claiming to be Master Roshi.
    • In Chapter 47, Mei likens Rentarou telling her that the present she wants to buy for Hahari can't choose itself to something from the Ikkyu-San anime. In the same chapter, Hahari compares the chastity belt Rentarou is wearing to Astro Boy's briefs, and calls for Chainsaw Man to help her cut Rentarou out of it.
    • In Chapter 48, Karane mentions Dragon Quest, and Iku mentions that she plays Ghosts And Goblins.
    • In Chapter 49, Ron Weasley is mentioned, and Rentarou puts on a pixeled pair of Iron Man's gloves to avoid feeling it when he gropes Karane's chest.
    • In Chapter 52, Meme's desperate attempt to hide her eyes is compared to Colonel Muska's final moments.
    • In Chapter 55, Mimimi asks Toruru if the so called "trending topic" she mentioned was Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
    • In Chapter 56, Rentarou dreams about letting Iku use him as a Bey Blade, and an alien similar to a Xenomorph appears in the dream he has while using Kusuri's lap as a pillow. He also dreams that he is Evangelion Unit-01, and Meme is Rei.
    • In Chapter 57, Naddy calls herself Captain America.
    • In Chapter 58, Mei is compared to a Sanrio puppy in her "freedom outfit", while Rentarou's "freedom outfit" is just Luffy's clothes. Also, Disneyland makes a cameo in the Imagine Spot Nano has upon seeing Shizuka's "freedom outfit", while Iku's is said to come from Kyojin no Hoshi.
    • In Chapter 59, Nano's explanation of what's going on in the arcade is lampshaded as being basically Kaiji, which is followed a bit later on by a panel with a Kaiji-alike and friends.
    • In Chapter 61, the Twitter logo briefly appears. Also, Chiyo and Kusuri read what is clearly a Where's Wally? book.
    • The splash page for Chapter 62 resembles the poster for The Idolmaster.
    • After seeing how much animals love Yamame in Chapter 64, Rentarou wonders whether they're in Nausicaä, or if she's a Laputian robot. At the end, when Yamame gets the idea Rentarou's a representative of all living things, and therefore she's been caring for him all along, Rentarou rejects it, saying "This isn't like the story of 'The Crane's Return of a Favor'.".
    • In Chapter 65, Hahari announces "I activate my Trap Card!" before giving the girls their new white dresses. Rentarou also claims to have lost all 4000 of his Life Points upon seeing them in their new outfits. In addition, Kusuri calls herself, Chiyo and Shizuka the "Attack Titan" upon being given a piggy back ride by Yamame, and the group kiss at the end of the chapter is compared to something from the same manga. Kurumi also parodies Robin Nico's cry of "I want to live!" twice.
    • In Chapter 66, Kusuri's discovery of a sunflower seed in the nabe gets someone asking if Hamtaro brought it, and Kusuri jumping off on that to say sunflower seeds are great because it's like she's really Hamtaro. There's also a fair few things that get referenced as being in Golden Kamuy.
  • Shrinking Violet: Meme hates being noticed, so she grew out her bangs to cover her face and developed a Ninja Log technique to quickly hide when she feels nervous. She has an admiration for Mimimi who loves being the center of attention.
  • Soft Water:
    • Rentarou saves Hakari's life by redirecting their fall towards a swimming pool instead of the hard ground.
    • Averted when Kusuri almost falls off the roof by accident. They are all terrified for her safety, despite the pool being directly below. Fortunately, Rentarou pulls her up, and all the other girls have his back.
  • Someone to Remember Him By: Hahari got impregnated at age 13 because her lover had a terminal disease.
  • Squee!: Kurumi does this whenever she gets the food she's craving.
  • Stating the Simple Solution: Karane asks whether Hahari can just exert her authority as chairwoman of the school to keep Iku's baseball team open despite it having only one member. In a rare case of maturity and responsible behavior, Hahari says she can't do it, because if she were to make an exception for one club, she would have to do so for every club in order to avoid playing favorites.
  • Super Speed: The Vice-Principal, to the point where she's been called "The Hag Closest to Supersonic Speeds in this World".
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome:
    • Kurumi is just a kid, so she can't enter an eating contest on her own without parental supervision. Fortunately, there Ain't No Rule that she can't join on a team with seven other people, one of whom is an adult.
    • When the girls join Iku's baseball team, Hahari, Mei, and Kurumi can't, because they aren't high school students. Hahari and Mei are adults, and Kurumi is in middle school. Fortunately a little pleading from Rentarou and a very relaxed referee gets them to play anyways.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Karane denies to Rentarou that she and the other girlfriends (absent Shizuka) tried to peep on him when, as far as he was concerned, they were not doing anything. This immediately tells him what actually happened and the other girlfriends actually facepalm at Karane.
  • Sweater Girl: Meme wears a nice black turtleneck at all times.

    T-Z 
  • Take That!: In Chapter 26, Rentarou calls bubble tea "pandering to selfie culture".
  • Tears of Joy: Rentarou is prone to doing this frequently. In one chapter when the girlfriends reaffirm their love for him, he cries so much the rooftop gets flooded.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Mei has hypnotic, rainbow colored eyes.
  • Title Drop: Karane and Rentarou in chapter 18 when subjected to Hahari's lie detector chair.
  • Tournament Arc: Parodied with the eating contest starting in Chapter 25, which has multiple rounds and a system of Scoring Points, such that actual strategy is required, and ignoring that one would be sated very quickly in reality.
  • Training from Hell:
    • The Gorira Alliance regularly set off fireworks in their mouths as training to eat spicy food.
    • Iku actively seeks out opportunities to do this, as part of her belief that pain is good for you.
  • Transformation Sequence: In Chapter 29, Kusuri takes the neutralizer to turn back into her 18-year-old self, and calls out, "Transformation sequence!"
  • Tsundere:
    • Karane Inda, to parodic degrees. This includes being a Bad Liar.
    • Harada Kurumi is grumpy and hostile to everyone when she's hungry, but apologetic and demure when fed.
  • TV Genius: Kusuri is able to invent drugs that can do anything, such as magnetizing the iron in your blood, accidentally turning people into kissing-zombies, deaging herself to a child, and swapping people’s bodies. And all of them can be neutralized with a single antidote. Rentarou even calls her "Doraemon" at one point.
  • Two-Timer Date: Taken Up to Eleven when Rentarou thinks that he can 100-time all his girlfriends. He quickly rejects the idea as it would be cruel.
  • Undying Loyalty: Meido is so devoted to her master, Hahari, that she practically has no sense of self at all. Not only can almost nothing catch her off guard, but she literally can't understand the concept of not following orders.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: Hahari loves dressup and has a gigantic closet filled with everything from costumes to baby clothes. If she doesn't have something specific, she'll pay for it to be tailored overnight.
  • Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Rentarou comes up with a convoluted and detailed scheme to use blindfolds, dice rolls, and careful choreography to completely obfuscate which of Hakari or Karane he kisses first. Naturally something spoils every attempt and they eventually give up (after a lot of pain and embarrassment on all sides).
  • Verbal Tic:
    • Kusuri has a habit of saying "yep, yep!" at the end of her sentences ("nanoda!" in Japanese). It was originally translated as "yeppers!". She even says it in her sleep.
    • The leader of the Gorira Alliance adds "uho" to the end of her sentences.
    • Mimimi adds "naturally!" to the end of her sentences. She even says it in her sleep.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Takeko Deluxe throws up after the eating contest, but her vomit is pixilated.
  • Wall of Text: Played for Laughs in Chapter 37. After each of the current girlfriends tell Rentarou all the things they love about him, Rentarou fires back with a massive page covering list of every single thing there is to love about them.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: Both Rentarou and Iku lose their clothes to Terano's fastball.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back: After Karane loses her Tsundere-ness thanks to a drug, while everyone is charmed by her new sweet behavior at first, they soon all agree that they prefer the old her.
  • Wet T-Shirt Contest: Hahari organizes one—but with Maid uniforms instead of shirts.
  • Wham Line:
    • From the end of Chapter 14: "Rentarou-kun...would you...please break up with me?"
    • From Chapter 57: "You really are Japanese, aren't you?"
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: In Chapter 35, Karane yells "Screw this manga!" when the opposing team openly cheats during a game.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Karane performs various holds on Rentarou when she's embarrassed.
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Rentarou's reaction to getting love shocked at the sight of his cousin Chiyo Iin.
  • Zany Scheme: Rentarou is prone to these in order to please his ever growing harem. Examples include:
    • Setting up a convoluted game to prevent his first two girlfriends from feeling jealous of the other having his first kiss. (It doesn't work out.)
    • Copying an entire book by hand for a text-to-speech app for another girlfriend's phone.
    • Breaking into the home of a wealthy family to rescue a girlfriend whose mother wants to cut all ties with him.
    • Improvising a particular recipe to satiate a girlfriend's appetite, burning himself in the process.
    • Stripping down to a loincloth to prevent a girlfriend from overworking herself from training for an upcoming game.
    • Hideously deforming himself during a beauty seeking contest in order to force a draw between the contestants.
    • Sewing and rigging multiple life-size puppets to make the audience bigger during a concert.
    • Standing all his girlfriends on dirt piles to placate the newest addition's height insecurity.
  • Zombie Gait: Inverted in the kissing zombie arc. The kissing drug that turns the girls into kissing zombies actually makes them run faster than normal.
