* 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.]]
* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: [[spoiler:The hinted infatuation between the two Nanas is practically thrown overboard as the series progresses. ]]
* BastardBoyfriend: Takumi to Hachi. Takumi attempts to manipulate and control Nana, and [[spoiler: rapes her on two occasions]]

** The manga is possibly even worse (or better, depending on your point of view) in this respect. The Nanas regularly ask the author to hurry up boring scenes, and at one point chastise her for [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic overusing]] [[SevenIsNana number seven-related symbolism]].

* 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.

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

* 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.

* 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.]]
