• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A common outcome of a Crash Into Hello involves both parties lying on the floor stacked one on top of the other, in the same position they'd be in if they were extremely passionate about one another.

After a beat, the two will instantly teleport to a seiza position, facing away from one another and blushing furiously. If they can talk to one another, they'll either stammer furiously, or one will berate the other.

Examples of Instant Seiza include:

Anime and Manga

  • Skip Beat - Kyouko is prone to doing this, though does it more because she's truly sorry for something. Interestingly enough, she seems to do this to Ren quite often.
  • Mahoraba - Both Kozue and Shiratori are very prone to this.
  • Love Hina — most notably when Naru and Keitaro are hitchhiking with Mutsumi while escorting her home, riding in the back of a truck.
  • Ranma ½
  • Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl
  • Subversion: Keiko in Tenshi na Konamaiki takes advantage of being pinned under Fujiki to scream and accuse him of being a pervert, in order to knock Megumi down a peg.
  • Played with in FLCL, where Haruko goes into Instant Seiza after hitting Naota, then starts rolling and moving around jerkily... while still seated in the seiza position.
  • Occurs in Zone of the Enders: Delores, i... between two sentient Humongous Mecha, after a bump puts one's head in the other's lap.
  • An innuendo-free version occurs in Azumanga Daioh, when Chiyo walks in on Sakaki playing with her cat Maaya. Nothing naughty, just... undignified.
  • Erio and Caro do one after their Crash Into Hello in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, though they were facing each other and only Erio was blushing and stammering, and even then for just a few seconds. It seems the kids are too young to be fully affected by the embarrassing situation.
