YMMV / Pani Poni Dash!

Go To

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Many per episode. It comes with the territory.
  • Crazy Awesome: Ichijou.
  • Ear Worm: The opening themes. All of them.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Despite being called plain, Kurumi sure has a quite the fanbase because of her sexiness.
  • Les Yay: Done quite a few times. One including Behoimi and Media moving around behind a curtain with some rather suggestive dialogue while they disarm a bomb. Also in episode 15, where Becky tells Sayaka to do something to keep Himeko from jumping out the back of a bus teetering on the edge of a cliff (long story) and her answer to the problem is...well, this.
    • Again with Behoimi and Media in the final episode when they swap outfits, and Behoimi admits she's a little turned on when Media shows it off.
    • Despite Sayaka teasing with Himeko and Miyako in episodes 15 and 17, respectively, there's actually more subtext between her and Kurumi. They even tease each other every once in a while (Kurumi usually becomes a Deadpan Snarker when it comes to Sayaka's naiveness and Sayaka even teases her, too).
      • Someone must have caught attention of this, because Kurumi and Sayaka are Happily Married to each other in their Twitter accounts, and they don't just love each other, it goes to Tastes Like Diabetes levels of lovey-doveyness.

    • Himeko towards Rebecca.
    • In the English language trailer, Otome Akiyama is called "the tyke" and and Suzune Shiratori "the dyke".
  • Moe: Subverted by Kurumi, who actually works at a Moe cafe. Well, it would've been a Moe cafe... if it weren't for Kurumi's lack of "moe factor". Otome, too.
    • The cafe itself isn't really Moe Cafe-ish anyway, what with not only the inside but the owner himself being in stark black and white.
    • Akira Miyata. And yes, her haircut is cute.
    • Played completely straight with Becky of course.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Some of Ichijou's antics qualify.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Mesousa is actually male, but it can be hard to tell thanks to his feminine voice and tendency to crossdress.
  • The Woobie: Mesousa, Kurumi, Miyata, and somehow Otome.
  • Woolseyism: As if SHAFT's own cultural references weren't enough, ADV Films mixes in some of their own, including a Mel Gibson reference in the island episode.

How well does it match the trope?
