* CompressedAdaptation: The film rearranged parts of the story, eliminated some of the side characters (notably Toda, Yuu, Manabu, Non-chan, and Tamaki), and also removed other plot points (such as Daiki and Sayuri's arcs). It also changed some minor details, such as the climax of the story taking place during the cultural festival insead of the sports festival.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first volume of the series dealt with the Daiki-Ninako-Ren LoveTriangle, and by then the characters and plot hadn't completely settled. The story gets better by the time Ando is introduced in the story, and marketing seems to agree -- the vomic, drama [=CDs=], and even the film begin after the events of volume 1 and are practically divorced from Daiki's subplot.

Ninako Kinoshita is a [[NaiveEverygirl naive]] [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent high school student]] who [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove doesn't really know what love is]]. Her friends convince her that she must be in love with her childhood friend Daiki Korenaga, who has always held feelings for her. But Ninako gradually realizes what love is through her growing feelings for Ren Ichinose, the school's enigmatic heartthrob. More conflict arises when Ninako learns that Ren... has a ''girlfriend,'' Mayuka Korenaga - a famous model and Daiki's estranged older sister. Not only that, but Takumi Andou, Ren's middle school friend, develops feelings for Ninako too. For a girl who once didn't know what love was, what is Ninako to do?

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: There's never an instance where Noriko is ''not'' called "Non-chan." Similarly, everyone never refers to Yuu by his full name, Yuutarou, but as simply "Yuu" or "Tera." To a lesser extent, Manabu is also known by the nickname "Ga-chan" (since "Gaku" is an alternate pronunciation to "Manabu") but his family, Ren, and Yuu still refer to him by his real name.

The English version by Creator/VizMedia does away with the nicknames and LastNameBasis, so this trope is nearly nonexistent in tne English translation.
