Added DiffLines:

* GoodOldWays: The 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo has split the country practically down the middle, with one faction practically champing at the bit to abandon the old ways and the other clinging desperately and refusing to dispense with their history and identity. Shun Kazama has no problem with the future, but insists that it can't be properly achieved without first knowing the past. Of course, his own past has [[{{Irony}} quite the bumpy ride for him]] in store.

* MenCantKeepHouse: The all-male-occupied Quartier Latin is ''filthy''. The cleanup effort requires an ''army'' of {{Joushikousei}}. Some of the girls are even more competent at construction work like plastering.

* ChekovsGunman: Early in the movie, a family friend offers Umi a lift to school, but she chooses to walk. During the film's climax, she and Shun accost him for a ride to the harbor, but traffic means he ''again'' won't get her where she needs to go.

* BrotherSisterIncest: Shun was adopted, and discovered he and Umi shared a father, Sawamura, who died in the war. The two conclude that although they love each other, their siblinghood makes any romantic relationship impossible. Later, it's revealed that Shun's real father is Tachibana, who died previously in the war, and that Sawamura legally registered him to avoid him growing up in an orphanage. For practical reasons, he decided to give him up to the Kazamas, who had recently lost a child.

* CryIntoChest: After Umi's Mother reveals Umi bursts into tears exactly twice, once with each parent. [[spoiler: The first is during a tragic dream where both her parents are present, and the second is when Umi is informed that Umi she and Shun could may not in fact be siblings.siblings after all]].



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Played with. After Umi reads the poem about her flags, a classmate who fancies himself TheSpock rather callously claims that someone responding to her flags "just doesn't calculate". As he walks off (never to be important again), he's called a Math Club Freak and it's mentioned he's one of the clubhouse denizens. The moment adequately establishes not any particular character, but the fact that there's a clubhouse and the very negative opinion most girls have of it.



* LikeFatherLikeSon: Shun Kazama heavily resembles Umi's father Yuichirou Sawamura. In the Japanese version, he even has the same voice actor. [[spoiler: Subverted when it turns out Yuichirou is only Shun's temporary adoptive father]].



* MenCantKeepHouse: The all-male-occupied Quartier Latin is ''filthy''.
** Made even more explicit when they go to clean it up and only manage by bringing in bunch of female students.

* NotBloodSiblings: Much to the non siblings relief.
* ParentalAbandonment: Neither Umi's nor Shun's birth parents are around, most are dead. Umi lives with her grandmother, Shun with his adoptive parents.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] later in the film when Umi's mother returns from America.
* PoorCommunicationKills: A non-fatal example, but a lot of Umi's and Shun's problems would have been prevented if [[spoiler:Umi's father told his friend that Shun was NOT his biological son when he gave him the newborn]].
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Chairman Tokumaru, who jokes with Mizunuma, Shun, and Umi about their playing hooky to meet him in Tokyo and ultimately allows Quartier Latin to remain standing. This is in stark contrast to the Konan principal, who tries to go forward with demolishing Quartier Latin despite an impressive student-run remodeling effort and the student population swinging from 80% for demolition to a majority against.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Umi's parents decided to give the orphaned newborn Shun to a couple who lost their child. The couple loved Shun [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming right away]].

* TheReveal: Shun was given to the Kazamas by Yuichirou Sawamura, Umi's father. [[spoiler:Yuichirou actually had Shun adopted and registered as part of his family to keep him out of an orphanage after the boy's real father, Hiroshi Tachibana, was killed]].

Added DiffLines:

* TrueCompanions: Umi's father Yuichirou Sawamura was excellent friends with two other men, Hiroshi Tachibana and Yoshio Onodera. [[spoiler: Yuichirou impulsively adopted the late Hiroshi's son Shun but ended up giving him away to another couple. It's the still living Yoshio who confirms Shun and Umi are in fact NotBloodSiblings]].


Added DiffLines:

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: Downplayed. The clubhouse may have dozens of clubs, but that doesn't mean they get along together in the slightest. The Philosophy and Chemistry clubs are in particular at odds with one another.
