This is the beginning of ''Nana to Kaoru'', an ongoing {{Ecchi}} manga by Ryuta Amazume. It chronicles Nana and Kaoru's adventures in BDSM, from erotic posing and leash-wearing to bondage and blindfold play, and more. It isn't subtitled ''Nana and Kaoru's S&M Diary'' for nothing.

* DoubleSubversion: The final arc double subverts the series' own premise of showing BDSM lovers as normal, well-adjusted human beings who practice Safe, Sane and Consensual sex for romantic purposes by finally introducing us to [[spoiler: someone who is every bit the idea of the sociopathic, genuinely sadistic madman who will drug and kidnap someone in order to sexually torture them for his own pleasure.]] What makes this particularly poignant is that Nana falls for him ''precisely because'', by then, she has already internalized the series' "message" and wasn't willing to believe him to be anything but a misunderstood loner.

* FanNickname: ''Nana to Kaoru: Arashi'', scanlators (and therefore fans) used this to differentiate the main series running in ''Young Animal'' to the newest one running in ''Young Animal Arashi''; in truth the Arashi magazine also referred to the new series as Nana to Kaoru, they didn't feel the need to create a new title till the first collected Volume was published. '''Nana to Kaoru: Black Label''' is the official title of what fans have been calling ''Nana to Kaoru: Arashi'' for quite some time.



** Tachi as well, with her sporty attitude.



* WriteWhoYouKnow: It's implied in Black Label that Sarashina-sensei uses this to come up with the plot of his books.

See, Kaoru, as it happens, has a... ''[[UnusualEuphemism thing]]'' for {{UsefulNotes/BDSM}}. One day, his mother, fed up with the weird toys that Kaoru has been wasting his money on, steals all of them to get her son to study instead of spending his evenings jacking off. But since she can't keep them in their apartment (where he'll find them), she asks Nana to keep an eye on them. Nana, wondering what Kaoru has bought, looks through his stuff... and immediately pulls out a [[HellBentForLeather leather one-piece]], which looks suspiciously close to her size. Intrigued, Nana tries on the suit... and locks it in the heat of the moment. Even worse, she doesn't have the key, so it must be in Kaoru's room...

* AccidentalKiss / SacredFirstKiss: ''[[KissingDiscretionShot Probably]]''. Even Nana and Kaoru aren't sure if it happened or not. It's not actually shown whether or not it actually happened, but according to his following actions in the play, Kaoru seems quite sure that it has; Nana is only shown to touch lips afterwards. But as the end of chapter notes pointed out, [[spoiler: the potential kiss]] wasn't the big movement in their relationship, it was [[spoiler:''Nana realizing she wouldn't have minded kissing Kaoru'']].

* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: The good kind. Kaoru tends to hang out with the underachievers, but Nana doesn't lump him together with them when she finds them misbehaving in school. Mostly she just blushes and mumbles his name.

Noteworthy for portraying BDSM as something complicated and careful if done willingly, requiring not only trust between the people involved but also preparations and care. Also notable in that it does this without sex ever happening or even being implied (outside of the ''Black Label'' story there's not even any nudity) despite the subject matter it's a relationship/romance manga, not hentai.

There is a break in the narrative at one point for depicting the sex life of an adult couple tangentially related to the main story, but despite the subject matter matter, it's a relationship/romance manga, manga for the most part and not hentai.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: The live-action adaptation features a much more attractive Kaoru. By contrast, Nana is much less...curvy than she is in the manga, presumably because her body type isn't exactly common among Japanese women.
