- Ensemble Dark Horse:
- Alexandra Magritte, given her similarity to Maki Nishikino in terms of appearance.
- In a very, very minor extent: Prince Charles, which many fans viewed him as a "royal bro" after letting Teresa to stay on Mitsuyoshi's side.
- Epileptic Trees: After the reveal of Teresa marrying Prince Charles after she returns to her hometown, many fans quickly pointed out the similarity to that one ending from Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi (or Aldnoah.Zero), and especially Roman Holiday, which they assume that Mitsuyoshi will not have a happy ending with Teresa.
- Memetic Mutation: Alec is a comparison subject for Love Live! fans.
- Spiritual Adaptation: of Roman Holiday. It has a similar plot, at least in Broad Strokes, and makes nods to the original in the opening (with Theresa and Tada on a Vespa)
- Win the Crowd: After a number of unhappy endings to previous slice-of-life Animes, this show finally gives some hope to the skeptical fans who assumed that the main character will have a bad end.
