* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Otani and Koizumi are mostly known in their class as a manzai duo (the "All Hanshin-Kyoujin") because they always argue and point out their respective idiocies, even in front of the class. Frequently, Otani acts more like the Boke, with Koizumi as the Tsukkomi.

* IronicName: This gets lampshaded a few times since it applies to Koizumi and Otani. "Koizumi" means "Little Spring" (when she is actually taller), and "Otani" means "Big Valley" (when he is actually short).

* HeightAngst: A large part of the series focus on this premise, with the male fact that Otani and female protagonists being Koizumi suffer (especially on the romance aspect of their lives), because of their respective heights (as Otani is much shorter than the average Japanese man, and Koizumi is much taller than the average Japanese woman). That's part of the reason why they get along very short well, and very tall respectively. It doesn't help that why several characters think [[ShipperOnDeck they are a ShipperOnDeck fit for them.each other]].



* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Generally, the narration boxes in the manga belong solely to Koizumi's thoughts. Once in a while, some pop up that seem to belong to Otani... except the "camera" then pulls back to reveal that one of their friends is holding up a sign and a marker.

* KansaiRegionalAccent: It's noticeable that the series not only plays the dialect completely straight (as an aspect of the region rather than the characters in general), but that it also plays the [[TheIdiotFromOsaka character trope]] completely to the hilt. Aside from the "manzai duo" that the main couple are seen as by their peers, they go to ''Maido'' Academy.

A friend says that, yes, she ''really'' meant it, when he responds with "Don't lie."

''Lovely★Complex'' started as a [[{{Shojo}} shojo]] manga by Aya Nakahara, and has been adapted as an anime and live-action movie. The anime preserves much of the snark and energy of the original. The rollercoaster-ride of Koizumi's and Otani's relationship gains a lot of depth by way of a cast of lovable characters, which makes the series a pleasurable watch till the very end.

Creator/DiscotekMedia released the anime series as sub-only in the U.S., in 2012.
