*** 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.

Not just that, but his grandfather destroyed all her photographs and belongings. All of them, that is, except [[spoiler: a jewelry-box key young Kaoru gave young Aoi as a [[{{Tearjerker}} Very Special Present]].]]

* BonusEpisode: Thirteen episodes in "[[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo Enishi]]" if you count the ChristmasEpisode. Arguably more of an {{Omake}}.

** In the manga [[spoiler: Aoi and Kaoru are together like they wanted. But they have both been expelled from their families.On the one hand, Aoi says she and Kaoru are happy. She also says that she doesn't get to see him as much as she might like because he works long hours to support them. There is also the big fact that the TrueCompanions have been split up, although Aoi says they do get to see each other sometimes. Maybe call it a Happy Ending with bittersweet caveats]].
