- Base-Breaking Character:
- Do you like how he subverted expectations by not joining the club, or do you not like that he didn't repay the Gaming Club's collective kindness towards him? (especially since the FGC member gave him her fightstick, since those can be expensive for a good one).
- His general demeanor is also base-breaking, because (even by Harem Genre hero standards) he is absurdly meek and eccentric. His obliviousness can quickly turn into being Innocently Insensitive and his Heroic Self-Deprecation can become unsympathetic. This is lampshaded in the second episode by Uehara, who thinks Amano is as hopeless as he used to be, only to conclude later that his old self has nothing on Amano.
- Konoha, Chiaki's little sister. Some find her hilarious, particularly in her assessment of Amano. Other's dislike hwo she essentially strong arms her way late into the First Season and starts interfering in Amano's love life.
- Broken Base: Aguri's Take That! against video gaming as a hobby in Episode 12 ended in spurring quite the debate of whether she actually had a point and it was funny, or if she was being a jerk and it was a mean-spirited jab at he viewers.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: After glimpses into their lives were revealed, a number of fans hope for Spin Offs that center around the non-Tendo Gaming Club members.
- Fan-Preferred Couple: Due to some of their interactions, and Amano taking his Platonic Life-Partners dynamic to the point of Undying Loyalty, a number of fans agree with Uehara and Tendo when they dejectedly said that Amano and Aguri are an ideal couple.
- "Holy Shit!" Quotient: The entirety of episode 6 steadily ratchets up the tension of misunderstandings to the point where the viewer is to believe that the end result will be nothing short of disaster. Then the final exchange of the episode takes place where instead of such circumstances ruining Amano's confession, it causes him to give a more bold confession, to which Tendou agrees to, officially giving them a Relationship Upgrade.
- Memetic Mutation:
- Misunderstanding: The Anime. explanation
- Uehara's a Titan! explanation
- The Board Game ships our ships! explanation
- Sleeper Hit: Climbed as high as #4 on Crunchyroll's most viewed shows for summer 2017, a place usually reserved for long-running Shōnen series.
- Woolseyism: The English Dub's script is pretty well written, and adds a few more Shout Outs (like one to the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series).
YMMV / Gamers!
