Some of the citizens, including Dawn's father and Kieran, are the Dated - their wrists have their [[TitleDrop expiry date]] on them. So, Dawn and Kieran try to live their lives as much as they can before the latter dies. However, Kieran's sister Electra, one of the Barcode creators for a group called Alkahest, won't make it an easy task...

* ADayInTheLimelight: Hideaki and Haruka get theirs in a side story called ''Different''. Dawn receives a less extreme version in the first chapter and Daisuke gets his less extreme version during the fight focussing on him.

Since only one chapter of Expiry Date has been released so far, that's all that can be found so far.

* CaptainObvious: The creatures are called Barcodes because they have barcodes on them. See TemporalThemeNaming for another example.



* NextSundayAD: Except for the Barcodes and the Dated, it's pretty much the same - the end of the first chapter even mentions they still have to go to school.

* TitleDrop: In the first Barcode battle. A bit ironic, if you observe it.
--> Barcode: Your [[SssssnakeTalk exss-piry]] date is today.
--> Kieran: (after finishing off the Barcode and glancing down at his right wrist) Nope, it's your expiry date.

!!''Expiry Date'' contains examples of:
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: ...everything but the "gentle" part works, because Dawn's an ActionGirl who actually hogs the spotlight during the first Barcode battle.
* DualTonfas: Dawn has a pair.
* RoyalRapier: Kieran has not one, but two [[DualWielding dual wielded]].
* NextSundayAD: Except for the Barcodes and the Dated, it's pretty much the same - the end of the first chapter even mentions they still have to go to school.
* PartTimeHero
* TemporalThemeNaming: Kieran's name, depending on source, will vary in meaning but will always have one thing in common: the word "dark" - obviously referring to a darker time of day like dusk. Dawn is...well, [[CaptainObvious dawn]].
* TripleShifter
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: Hey, wait a second...[[Literature/RoTeO some of these tropes seem familiar]]...
