* RealLifeWritesThePlot: After meeting with Aoki and her three female assistants, noticing that they don't pay attention to him like the girls in clubs do, and realizing that the girls in the clubs socialize with him because they're getting paid, Shizuka decides to incorporate false female love into his manga. Before this, around the time he had started going to clubs, the story had veered toward the regular human girls having HappinessInSlavery, to its detriment; The manga eventually regains its top ten status.

Added DiffLines:

* SpoilerCover: The cover of the third volume shows Moritaka Mashiro, one of the main characters, working as an assistant for Eiji Nizuma. When the offer is first proposed, Mashiro's editor, Akira Hattori, initially doesn't think he'll take it.

Added DiffLines:

* StoppedReadingTooSoon: Both the protagonists stop reading only a few pages into the book Iwase gave Takagi, one because he doesn't like the genre she wrote in, and the other because it was too "deep" for him. Thus they both miss the message she inserted between pages about halfway through the book.

** Azuki Miho is almost an exact carbon copy of [[Manga/{{Is}} Iori Yoshizuki from]] '''[[Manga/{{Is}} I"s]]''', and not just in terms of appearance. Both are aspiring young women who enter the competitive Japanese media idol industry, with Azuki getting involved in voice acting and Iori becoming a film/stage actress. Their romances with their respective male leads are also quite identical, with the main difference being that Miho's and Mashiro's are far less {{Wangst}}y than Iori's and Ichitaka's ([[ChickMagnet Takagi]] is the one who gets stuck with the {{LoveTriangle}}s instead, and even those don't last long).

** An interesting example to fans of Death Note: When Mashiro and Takagi start attending college, they mention how good it is for them to have Miyoshi hang out with them due to how they'd appear to be a [[HoYay couple]] if they didn't have a girl with them. In other words, Ohba and Obata are quite aware of the gay subtext made between Light and L when they start attending To-Oh Uni together, and their apparent closeness. Yes indeed, the fans were rumbled.
