- Spiritual Antithesis: To Fat Cinderella, a manga that is pretty much the polar opposite of Pochamani in terms of story, tone and characters.
- Values Dissonance: To non-Japanese readers, the way that Mugi's weight is talked about can seem a bit...exaggerated. Her being considered particularly fat makes more sense when one considers that Japanese people on average are skinnier than westerners, and what an American might consider "average" can be considered outright fat to a Japanese person. Not to mention the fact that Japan is rather strict with its beauty and weight standards, so "merely" chubby girls like Mugi often face a lot of scrutiny.
YMMV / Pochamani
