* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Sekai's initial intentions for Makoto while befriending -- [[MatchmakerCrush and setting him up with]] -- Kotonoha. Then Sekai suddenly takes his FirstKiss as a reward. [[spoiler:Later, when Makoto confesses to Sekai, she tearfully admits she had chosen to support him when Makoto told her he liked Kotonoha. Sekai puts all the blame on him before they kiss... and so forth.]] See MatchmakerCrush below.
** The visual novel plays with this trope a bit more than the anime does, in that in some routes she realizes that Makoto is also falling for her, which leads her to try to distance herself from him because she doesn't want to become the SpannerInTheWorks -- which, of course, can lead to Makoto tracking her down himself and confessing his own fully-realized feelings.

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Hey, you know that archetype of the ShrinkingViolet who's extremely shy and yet bullied by her peers, and endears the audience to her through her kindness? What if the reason she was a ShrinkingViolet is because she's ''horribly'' low on self-esteem? What if she grows so attached to the first person who ever confessed to her that she goes ''mad'' when she finds out he's cheating on her? And in this madness, who could tell what she's capable of?

* DeconstructedAnimeArchetype: Of the MatchmakerCrush. Turns out that giving the person you like away to another girl can ''really'' put a damper on your emotional state. And outright telling him your feelings may end up making things so much [[FromBadToWorse worse]] [[ConflictBall than they really have to be]].

Added DiffLines:

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Less so in the manga, ''much'' more so in the anime and perhaps in the games, if you pick the [[SchmuckBait right options]]. The average harem anime protagonist is more or less seen as a RidiculouslyAverageGuy who's more often than not an AccidentalPervert who may or may not actually have [[AllMenArePerverts perverted tendencies]], is a ChasteHero who is ObliviousToLove, is able to attract women through his being a generally NiceGuy, and has character ''traits'' but not so much an actual personality so as to allow the male viewers to insert themselves into the role. Makoto takes all of these tropes and elements and eviscerates them completely. To wit:
** Being a RidiculouslyAverageGuy at his age has been played to its LogicalConclusion and he's more or less a HormoneAddledTeenager whose perversity and lust incrementally increases the more girls throw themselves at him.
** His obliviousness to love is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by how he ends up gradually seeing the girls as sex objects and less as actual people, which isn't helped by the fact that many girls do end up attracted to him in the long run.
** His status as a plain old NiceGuy gets hampered over time due to his lust for more women, and in some instances drive them away from him.
** He appears to be just a boring FlatCharacter initially, but his personality adapts for better or for worse depending on his faithfulness to whoever the player chooses for him to romance. But in the anime, this is thoroughly demolished and he is taken to the absolute extreme negative side of the scale he becomes outright sociopathic in his pursuit of sex, and when he finds it in himself to turn things around for the better, he still shows himself to be a monstrous person whose lack of respect for people shines glaringly through.

** There's an interesting subversion in School Days and School Days HQ with Taisuke. In some of the routes, Makoto can witness Kotonoha being bullied far earlier than the lunch box incident at the end. Specifically, during the festival day, Makoto can witness Otome and her posse making fun of Kotonoha for supposedly having lied about Makoto being her boyfriend. If Makoto doesn't call them out at this point, ''Taisuke'' of all people will do so instead. The subversion in this case is that the "standards" ''lead to'' the "evil," since it's only in routes where Taisuke calls out the bullies that [[spoiler:he ends up raping Kotonha, due to the bullies telling him that girls like forceful men.]]

* InnocentlyInsensitive: At one point she asks Sekai for relationship advice, assuming she had "experience" (read: not a virgin). Sekai asks how experienced she looks like, and Kotonoha says "[[ReallyGetsAround extremely]]". They are both virgins at this point, but at least it's clear that Kotonoha does not think of or tries to insult Sekai, merely considers her more worldly and popular person to go for advice. And later Kotonoha obliviously lets it slide that her mother told her to not worry about spending on her date the amount of money Sekai earlier said is more than her mother earns in a month.
* IronicName: Her name's meaning contradicts her [[ShrinkingViolet personality]].
