* AuthorAppeal: clothes. Hayashiya Shizuru plainly enjoyed playing dress up the characters: even Saeki sports a different hairstyle practically every episode, and in Zlay-san's case, it verges on CostumePorn. Sera, the photographer, is the only character who keeps more or less the same looks throughout the series, which kind of makes her stand out from the rest of the cast.

-->'''Ran:''' I'll rub your shoulders for you later.
-->'''Julia:''' [[spoiler: You could rub a lot more than just my shoulders [...] ]]
** Also, Sera Mutsuki.

* [[PunchClockVillain Punch Clock]] [[TheAntagonist Antagonist]]: Saeki. She's constantly blocking Julia's advances towards Ran, but it's just part of her job; and she's ''right'' to think that a scandal could damage the two girls' reputations. Also, at first she's under the assumption that Julia is just [[SchoolgirlLesbians going through a phase]] and it doesn't even cross her mind that Ran could reciprocate her feelings. In the end, she's more than happy to quit playing chaperone for them.

* {{Seme}} / {{Uke}}: Invoked by WordOfGod (in the notes at the end of the first volume), but actually avoided in the manga:[[spoiler: while Julia simply can't work up the courage to make her move, Ran struggles through several chapters to ''stop herself'' from pouncing on Julia.]] In the end, [[spoiler: Julia confesses first, yet she still thinks she's the "passive partner" because Ran takes the initiative for the kiss]]; and the dynamic leading to that moment has nothing of the Seme/Uke in it.

* SempaiKohai: Julia and Ran, Saeki and Megumu.
* ShipperOnDeck: never explicitly stated, but Ryou is ''so'' obviously intent on getting Ran and Julia together (see ConcertKiss above)
* ShippingTorpedo: Saeki's official capacity.
* ShoutOut: ZLAY is a parody of the real life Japanese band GLAY.
** And Ran and Julia's names are a reference to RomeoAndJuliet.
** Also, Ran's real name, Ran Ohtori, is the name of a famous {{Takarazuka}} actress. As for her false name, Ran Asakawa... well, just [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar google it and see]].

** At one point, Julia thinks it may be better to act more cold towards Ran during work and more friendly during free time. All she succeeds in doing is confusing Ran even more.

* ConcertKiss: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. [[spoiler:Ran and Julia kiss for the first time on stage at the Zlay concert, but there is nothing romantic about it as it's just part of the performance; their ''real'' "first kiss" comes a few pages later, while they're ''watching'' the concert from the backstage, ''and'' it's obscured by a KissingDiscretionShot .]] Arguably counts as an ExploitedTrope too, as it's ''heavily'' implied that GenreSavvy Ryou had set everything up in order to bring it about.

* GenreSavvy: Saeki - ironic, given that she's about the only main female cast member who's likely to be straight.
** Ryou's ESP abilities -see above- arguably count as GenreSavvy.
