* StepfordSmiler: Yuu. He's a pretty chill, apparently carefree guy, but deep down he's got issues. Picture a slightly older [[KodomoNoOmocha Hayama]] that has been brought up by a loving family (in fact, both even look quite a bit alike). Watch the movie, and compare [[spoiler: Yuu's treatment of Miki throughout the first third of the series with the fact that, before he ever met her, he spent an entire day following her around town.]] This makes ''Marmalade Boy'' an instance of a StalkerWithACrush being [[spoiler: the ''male protagonist''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: Yuu is mostly a cool and collected guy, but sometimes he's prone to quite the bouts of depression. When this happens, Miki attempts to comfort and understand his reasons so she can help him out. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it does't.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Yuu is pretty much a chill guy: during most of the manga, the only emotions he displays are contempt, [[StepfordSmiler happiness]] and, sometimes, moderate anger. Because of this, when near the end of the anime he breaks up with Miki and she, very calmly and with a very, very sad voice, asks basically what has gone wrong and he '''explodes''' crying and yelling at her, it's a very powerful moment. Of course, he does this because he thinks he's found out [[spoiler: he and Miki are half-siblings]].
