  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Is Miharu a mature and normal girl stretched to the limit by her best friend, or a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who treats her only friend as an annoyance at best? note

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: In chapter 222 of the manga, right after Miyano confesses to Kosuda while Yamada is in Kosuda's house, Yamada runs away in frustration and swims through an ocean where she somehow and for no reason at all lifts a 300 kg tuna out of the water like an Olympic weightlifter before going to Takeshita. Even some random nearby fishermen find this strange and of course this is never mentioned again.
    "How can she lift a 300kg tuna? What could make her so passionate?"

  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Not in the sense that it encourages bad behavior (indeed, it's an important lesson to learn and almost unquestionably a good one), but in that it's one rarely taught to young children: ultimately, most members of the opposite gender feel just as awkward about their sexuality (and have just as much sexual desire) as you do, and talking about it honestly and openly is the best way to resolves those problematic situations.

  • Idiot Plot: If Yamada could talk about her feelings, the story would have been resolved in about two pages. Tropes Are Not Bad, however; the hentai genre is filled with manga where a girl asks a boy for sex and Coitus Ensues. Would you rather have that, or Cannot Spit It Out? Don't answer that.

    • Episode 5: Mayu and Miharu.
    • Like many other shoujo and hentai tropes, this one gets toyed with a lot:
      • At one point, Yamada needs to talk privately to Takeshita about an embarrassing subject, and locks both of them inside a bathroom stall for that. Two girls standing outside wonder if they are lesbians.
      • In another case, Yamada plans to sneak up on Kosuda inside a dark room and steal his (and her) First Kiss, but accidentally almost ends up kissing Takeshita. She freaks out, saying that if she stopped a moment later she would have to start referring to Takeshita as "Onee-sama".
      • In yet another case, when Kanejou challenges her to a contest to determine who deserves to be "queen of the school", Yamada fantasizes about what form such a contest might take. Being herself, she immediately imagines herself on top of Kanejou in an extremely cheesy yuri scene (at which point she freaks out again).

    • More seriously, in the anime at least, Katase has some very suspicious statements ("screw boys..."), especially when Misato is concerned, that could imply that there might be something going on between them. A very one sided something, that is, since Misato's life just about revolves around looking for a boyfriend.
  • Woolseyism: When it isn't being a Gag Dub. Due to Values Dissonance, the original dub is fairly tame for a sex comedy in the eyes of Western audiences, so a great many lines were spiced up to mirror the relative ribaldry.
