* OppositesAttract

to:

* OppositesAttractOppositesAttract: Despite being exact opposites right down to their family origins, the two Nanas seem to enjoy each other's differences.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Virtually all the drama and tension in the series is from characters being to proud or humiliated to actually clarify what's on their mind, and letting everyone's worst imaginations run wild.

* BadGuyWins: [[spoiler: Takumi, probably the closest this series has to an antagonist, ultimately marries Nana and fathers her children. Though it seems she EVENTUALLY divorces him in the future.]]



* BittersweetEnding: At least for the anime; the manga is on hiatus.

to:

* BittersweetEnding: At least for the anime; the manga is on hiatus. [[spoiler: Hachi eventually seems to break away from Takumi, and maintains a friendship with some of Blast. But ultimately the two Nanas part ways seemingly forever, something which Hachi is still devastated by.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EverybodySmokes: The vast majority of the cast. BLAST is named after an in-universe brand of cigarettes.


Added DiffLines:

* TheFellowshipHasEnded: Happens twice. [[spoiler: The first is when Shouji cheats on Nana which effectively ends the friend group of him, Nana, Kyousuke, and Junko. The second is when Hachi picks Takumi over Nobu, which basically removes her "Team Mom" role from BLAST.]]
* {{Foil}}: What the entire show is premised on. Nana K. is an open, needy, dependent, selfish, immature woman who falls in love WAY too easily with men who don't always deserve it and has no real dream for herself other than to be happy with the one she loves. Nana O. is a fiercely independent, emotionally closed-off, mature-for-her-age woman who at times takes for granted the love she has from others and is willing to sacrifice and repress her own love for the sake of her dreams and ambition.

Added DiffLines:

* DrugsAreBad: [[spoiler: Since becoming famous Ren has picked up a drug habit, implied heavily to be influenced by his loneliness at being apart from Nana. He struggles to stay clean with Nana back in the picture, but relapses when she focuses more on her music. The only ones that know are the other members of Trapnest.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerandEdgier: This is a shoujo manga, not josei. But because all of the characters have realistic flaws and are constantly making poor choices because of those flaws, it can easily be mistaken for josei.

Added DiffLines:

* CigaretteofAnxiety: Almost everyone smokes and almost everyone is going through emotional turmoil. These show up all the time.

Added DiffLines:

* BreaktheCutie: One of the premier examples in shoujo manga.
* CallForward: Very effectively inverted. Hachi as the narrator addresses a lot of questions on whether or not their future would've been different if Hachi had acted or reacted to something differently. This creates the sense that something BAD has happened in the future that has separated Hachi and Nana but since the audience doesn't know exactly what that is, even during happy episodes and chapters there's an ominous feeling permeating throughout the narrative.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Post break-up with Shoji, Hachi wishes that her next boyfriend is cold and distant so that it would hurt less when he inevitiably betrays her. Nana also wished that Hachi would soon get a boyfriend, one with long hair since Hachi prefers it. Enter [[JerkAss Takumi.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BilingualBonus: For Japanese viewers in particular since both the lyrics of almost all of BLAST's and Trapnest's songs include English phrases
