- Base-Breaking Character: Miu, being an attempt at an anime Cartman. The show tries painting her as a hilarious Bratty Half-Pint, but some fans feel she misses the mark, as she is an obnoxious bully on occasion. Others find her brilliantly funny.
- Crosses the Line Twice: The "Noby Elimination Trap" from episode 51, "Proverbs", is made of this.
Chika: Miu! Come to my arms!Miu: Chika?! You do love me, after all! *Starts running* Chika! I love you too! *Splat*Chika grins.
- In "Matsuri in Rehab", Miu is hit on the nose with a rubber band, is kneed in the shin, then gets dizzy and falls flat on her face, all within two pages. The other girls think it's funny.
- Les Yay: Miu likes to invoke this. The other girls aren't very receptive.
- Memetic Mutation: Ana's facial expression (Google "gununu" for details) has become a popular visual meme.
- Memetic Molester: Nobue. Sometimes her affection for Ana and Matsuri seems not entirely innocent.
- Moe The whole cast, really. The English dub just takes this further casting younger girls near the characters' ages with all the adorable squeals and voice cracks that implies.
- Superlative Dubbing: The studio opted for the uncommon practice of hiring actual girls very near the ages of the characters to get a more authentic dynamic among the cast. And it works. Unfortunately it means the chances of the OVAs getting dubbed are very, very unlikely.
- Tastes Like Diabetes: The anime's opening and ending sequences. The show itself manages to subvert this thanks to its muted, deadpan delivery.
