* [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours My Acting Is Stronger Than Yours]]: This is Kyoko's motivation when it comes to even entering show-biz. Shou [[InspirationalInsult sas she's too plain to ever beat him if she were to enter the business]], so she's intent on learning how to act and beat him. It's also one of her main motivations, initially, when it comes to Ren. She wants to be such an amazing actress that she'll out-act him and have him acknowledge this.

* [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours My Acting Is Stronger Than Yours]]
* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: Kanae just doesn't like to work with children. Not because she's a ChildHater (she isn't), but because [[spoiler:she has a lot of younger siblings and nieces and nephews who can only be controlled by playful brute force, and she knows that she tends to act the same way with child actors, which is inappropriate behavior when the kid isn't related to you]]. She has changed her mind a bit ever since she befriended Hiou though.

** In early chapters, everyone uses flip phones. In act 32 Kyoko is given a flip phone by LME so she can carry out her duties as Ren's temporary manager, and chapter 48 shows Yashiro threatening to brick Ren's flip phone with his WalkingTechBane abilities. As of chapter 246, Ren has a modern smartphone capable of sending text messages (and presumably of sending videos, which he offered to do when Kyoko had to leave Guam before him).
** In chapter 168 Kyoko still has a flip phone, but she's shown to be able to search the web on it (while attempting to look up a recipe for a rice dish Ren said he wanted to cook).

** Chiori initially held a massive grudge against Kyoko for the Kyoko's seemingly effortless rise to fame. She offered Kyoko bad advice (which ended up working out in Kyoko's favor) and sabotaged Kyoko's wardrobe and dressing room (which Kyoko ignored). When Kyoko didn't respond to either of Chiori's tactics, [[spoiler: Chiori snapped and pushed Kyoko down a flight of stairs. Things have gotten better between the two since that point, with Chiori mellowing out and even looking up to Kyoko as a mentor figure.]]

* HostilityOnTheSet: An in-universe example; actors Ren (disguised as the actor Cain Heel) and Taira have been at each other's throats since the script reading for their film ''Tragic Marker''. Ren's "Cain Heel" persona is aloof and disinterested (the director has asked him to keep his distance from the cast and crew, in order to make his performance as an undead serial killer terrifying and unexpected), while Taira is a hot blooded ex-gang leader who thinks Cain isn't taking his work seriously.
** They get into numerous verbal sparring matches that culminate in an incident where Ren nearly kills Taira: what starts out as stage combat practice turns into an all-out brawl, during which Ren puts Taira in a choke-hold while suspended over an unsecured ledge on the film set. Taira is convinced he's about to die and [[TakingYouWithMe pulls Ren off the ledge with him]], but a last-second intervention from [[MoralityChain Kyoko]] convinces Ren to throw Taira into a safety net and use the momentum from the throw to land safely.

* UltimateJobSecurity: The director for BoxR should have been sued or something by now; a lot of the stuff he's been allowing or demanding from Natsu's group is actual, literal, unstaged torture of the actress playing the victim. Quite apart from the potential to set her on fire in the first scene, [[FridgeHorror she had tea poured down her throat so she could either swallow or drown, while her head was wrenched back by her hair...]] They play it as just one of those things that happen on the job!

* SetBehindTheScenes: The drama doesn't stop when the director yells cut -- as Kyoko, Kanae, and Ren (and a whole host of other characters) are actors, a good chunk of the story takes place between takes of whichever film scene/ tv series/ soda commercial is currently being filmed.



* ShowWithinAShow: To be expected: Kyoko and her best friend Moko end up doing a lot of acting once their careers get off the ground, and Ren was already an established actor by the time the series starts. Most of the in-series shows are type 1, where "characters are involved in the production of the show." Some examples include:

Added DiffLines:

* InconvenientAttraction: [[spoiler: Kyoko feels this way about her feelings for Ren]], to the point of the mental equivalent of jumping off a cliff. This is mutual as [[spoiler: Ren]] has a similar feeling about his affection for her. In both cases, even as they come to terms with their feelings, they still are not exactly happy about having them.
