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'']].

Nana succeeds only for the fish to escape and land in her cleavage. After failing to get it out herself, the girl ''slaps Nana's breasts together'' which causes the fish to fall through back into the river.]]

Kaoru, Doumoto and Hoshino try to use the dog to find out which porn actress fakes her orgasm by watching porn movies all night long.

* ParentsAsPeople: Kaoru's mother is rather well meaning, but being a nurse simply doesn't offer her a lot of time with Kaoru.[[spoiler: And the origins to Nana's ParentalIssues can be found with this trope at work.]]
* PoorCommunicationKills: Nana mistakes Tachi as being her Rival in a love triangle when in reality she's Kaoru's SecretKeeper. What secret? [[spoiler: He's in love with Nana.]] Understandably, it's a bit hard to explain this to Nana... But Tachi also is a bit sweet on Kaoru, too, and is starting to hesitate when doing things that might bring them closer together.

* SwappedRoles: When Tachi stops a younger student from finding out about the "breathers", she forces Kaoru to teach her about administering breathers (or rather, carrot and stick method). She settles on trying to give ''him'' a breather, along with Mitsuko as a guide. [[spoiler: It doesn't work. Kaoru does submit a bit, but refuses to become complacent, and insists he's Nana's Dom, and no one's sub.]]

* 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.

* 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.

* {{Blackmail}}: Tachi gets a second "breather" from Kaoru by threatening to tell Nana how much work he puts into their sessions, which would show Nana how deeply Kaoru really feels for her. It's probably for the best that she hasn't threatened to tell anyone else. [[FridgeLogic If you think about it]], Nana's mother is a police chief, while Nana is a class president; Tachi could do some real damage if she felt like spreading rumors.

* [[spoiler:RealityEnsues: Turns out that being bound hand and foot in a tight leather outfit without a zipper or precautions for communicating, when you're technically not supposed to be talking, will lead to some trouble.]]
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Kaoru gives a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome SPECTACULAR]] one to Nana's teacher, club kohai's, and fellow council members, telling them they're pushing too much on Nana, and only thinking about themselves. Cue everyone picking up the slack and falling over themselves to say they're sorry to Nana.

* BetterOnDVD: The complete manga volumes tend to end some chapters with bonus strips sometimes showing additional jokes, but sometimes showing very interesting scenes. Remember when Nana deleted the photos Kaoru took of her? [[spoiler:She kept them on a USB-Stick.]]
