* DeconstructedTrope: Yano's [[JerkAss jerkass]] antics ''do'' have a reason, albeit not justifying his outright abusive behaviors at Nanami. [[spoiler: Turns out his ex was a jerkass herself, often lying and cheating at him even after promising not to do so. Not only that, but he's also the bastard child of the husband of one of his mother's friends and was told all his life his father was an olympic swimmer when in reality he was dying in a hospital. Given his mother is not precisely mature, she is often acting compulsively and thus has left him to keep his stuff to himself. And then his only real friend falls for his girlfriend and tries to steal her from him. No wonder he has trust issues.]]

* [[ADorkable Adorkable:]] Nanami. She can be quite a CloudCuckooLander at times.
* BastardBoyfriend: Yano, literally.
* BettyAndVeronica: Yano is the Veronica to Takeuchi's Betty. One of the rare instances where the latter loses.



* BrainlessBeauty: Yano's ex-girlfriend, Nana. Invoked in-universe with her being known as "The Idiot".
* BroodingGuyGentleGirl: Though not at first glance, Nanami and Yano.

* DramaBomb: Maybe too much to handle at times. Thank goodness for breather episodes.
* Foil: NiceGuy Takeuchi to Yano's [[JerkAss jerkass]].
* GirlishPigtails: Nanami, on occasion.
* GreenEyedMonster: As seen when Nanami gave his best friend a phone decoration and he reacted by yanking it off his friend's hand and throwing it out the window. [[spoiler: Turns out he threw a peanut instead and kept the decoration, then returning it to Nanami.]] Actually a deconstruction, as Yano has a reason to be so jealous as his deceased ex-girlfriend cheated on him even after she promised not to do so more than once.



** [[spoiler:Likewise, Nanami starts dating Take after the timeskip, despite the fact that she isn't over Yano. However, when Take does propose to Nanami, she turns him down.]]
* {{Jerkass}} <-> JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yano, constantly going back-and-forth.

* LastGirlWins: The first one dies and the second is dumped in an arguably cruel way.
* LoveHurts: One of the central themes of the story, with the poor Nana being TheMartyr. It's a good thing she doesn't take shit back after a while.
* LoveTriangle: Presumably one of the few actually enjoyable ones in anime.
* LoveIsAWeakness: How Yano views love after he was viciously stepped on by his ex.
* LovingBully: Yano.
* Melodrama: Well, it's a shoujo with a TroubledButCute guy and TheMartyr, and a deconstruction at that!



* NotSoStoic: Yano, yet again. This goes hand-in-hand with donning the [[StepfordSmiler Stepford Smile]].
* StepfordSmiler Yano, from time to time.

Smile]]. [[spoiler: As an example, he breaks down crying upon being confronted by Nanami to let out any feelings of remorse against Nana. Which, given instead of remorse was longing, made the two break up, and with reason.]]

* RedOniBlueOni: Yano is red to Nanami's blue.

* RunningGag: Nanami's childish face, oh so much.
* SingleGirlSeeksMostPopularGuy: Nanami to Yano, who is liked by two-third of his class. If only they knew...
* StepfordSmiler:
Yano, from time to time.time.

Added DiffLines:

* TroubledButCute: Yano.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Yano and Takeuchi.
* YouAreNotAlone: Nanami gives Yano a particularly heartwarming one before they start dating, causing him to start having feelings for her and thus ignore her. [[JerkAss Which is not surprising.]]
