*** On the other hand, [[OfficeLady Miyabi]] [[BodyguardCrush feels]] [[HoYay resentment]] toward Kaoru for hogging Aoi's attention all these years, and she flat-out tells him so. She also feels jealousy ''on Aoi's behalf'' whenever she sees him with the other girls.

* LoserProtagonist: Averted. It's expected than an UnwantedHarem comedy will feature a LoserProtagonist as the unlikely central love interest, but although Kaoru [[TheWoobie had a difficult childhood]] and passed through a phase as a ShrinkingViolet, he's otherwise mostly [[TheSmartGuy gotten his act together]] even before [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Aoi]] bounds [[PluckyGirl back into his life]] and [[MagicalGirlfriend completes]] [[IntimateHealing the process]]. Despite this, Miyabi says at one point that her first impression of Kaoru was of someone unworthy of the amount of effort Aoi put into preparing to become his husband.

* NoEnding / CutShort: The anime cuts off before the Kaoru/Aoi storyline is resolved. You'll have to read the last few issues of the manga to get a [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised ''real'' ending]].

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Averted. Although definitely a dream girl, and arguably pixie-ish, Aoi is decidely ''not'' manic, or overtly quirky, or even [[GenkiGirl all that chipper]] except when basking in her love for Kaoru. And if ManicPixieDreamGirl-wannabee Tina ever had any chance at a beyond-platonic relationship with Kaoru, her abrupt disappearance for a year -- ironically, in part to try to get her act together for Kaoru -- completely sabotaged it.
