Subplots include the trials of junior high romance for Shizuku's friends and Shizuku's efforts to translate John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" into a Japanese version for her school's chorus club. The movie is bookended by Olivia Newton-John's 1973 cover version (which was a big hit in Japan) and the film's Japanese version, sung by Yoko Honna.

* InDefenceOfStoryTelling: Shizuku's decision to pursue her writing at the expense of her grades. Deconstructed, since Shizuku's family all warn her that she's slowly but surely wrecking her future (in the meantime, she's also poisoning her relationships as she isolates herself and gets into arguments with her family).



* LoveDodecahedron: Harada likes Sugimura, who likes Shizuku, who eventually falls in love with Seiji and vice versa, and some unnamed boy on the baseball team likes Harada. It's resolved in the end with the OfficialCouple being (obviously) Shizuku and Seiji, and it's implied in the credits that [[spoiler:Sugimura [[CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds eventually]] [[PairTheSpares reciprocates]] Harada's feelings.]]

* WriteWhatYouKnow: InUniverse: Shizuku struggles with her translation of "Country Roads"--she is a city girl, after all--and her first attempt comes out as a storm of cliches. Her "Concrete Roads" parody, on the other hand -- ''"Western Tokyo, mountain Tama..."'' is spot on, and very funny. Her final version ditches the whole going back to the country motif and is instead about choosing one's road in life.

* GhibliHills: Aversion - the story is deliberately linked to Tokyo: in fact, it's set in the very same Tama New Town development the forest creatures tried to halt in ''PomPoko''. Shizuku even acknowledges this by writing a parody of ''Country Roads'' called "Concrete Roads".
