- Crack Pairing: On fanfiction, one of the strongest of these is Toyama x Kirino.
- Ear Worm: Here's the opening song, and the ending song. It can get pretty addicting to listen to after hearing it a few times.
- Les Yay: Depending on how you interpret Saya and Kirino's Romantic Two-Girl Friendship. The scene late in the anime when Saya, after interrupting Kirino drafting her resignation from the kendo team, pushes Kirino down onto her bed is especially fraught.
- Moe: Tamaki, Tamaki, Tamaki. To a smaller extent, Kirino also certainly qualifies. In fact, Tamaki and Kirino both made it to the Top 8 (quarterfinals) during Saimoe 2008.
- The Scrappy: Toyama for his bullying and lack of punishment for it.
YMMV / Bamboo Blade
