[[caption-width-right:320:Kanade & Yukino]]
Kanade Sakurai has a [[{{Twincest}} crush]] on Yukino, her fraternal twin sister. Yukino appears to be well aware of the fact, but seems to play it off for laughs -- although she likes to tease Kanade a bit too much for comfort. Then, there is Sakuya Kamiyama, an underclassman of the two, who harbors a [[SchoolgirlLesbians crush]] on Kanade herself. [[SliceOfLife Stuff happens to them]].

''Candy Boy'' started off as a gimmick one shot ONA but the notion proved so popular that more episodes have been produced. This caused some confusion with episode numbering: the first episode (the original ONA) is usually not counted, with the technically second one designated as "episode 01", etc. For simplicity's sake, think of the original ONA as "episode 00". Still, there is also a prequel, called "[=EX01=]" -- and then there are the various music videos, made from scenes of the original series. Sadly the show couldn't last and ended after the DVD special ([=EX02=]). However, the story has continued in a manga, though it's more of an AlternateContinuity.

----
!!''Candy Boy'' contains examples of:

* {{Adorkable}}: Yuki. Her excitement at the idea of [[UmbrellaOfTogetherness sharing an umbrella]] with Kanade is both hilarious and heartwarming.
* AlternateContinuity: The manga, in which Kanade and Shizuku's relation is significantly more positive than in the anime. Moreover, the manga introduces several new characters: Yurippe, Isako, Masumi, and Eri, who does not appear in the anime.
* AnimatedMusicVideo: The first episode was originally a prolonged video for the song "Candy Boy" by Meilin.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Shizuku Sakurai appears this way but there is a reason behind her "annoying" behavior that makes her more sympathetic.
* ArtifactTitle: There aren't even any male characters in the show.
* BabyTalk: Kanade when she's embarrassed and apologizing.
-->Kanade: Shumimashen...
* BigEater: Yukino has a sweet tooth, which Sakuya abuses to bribe her.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine:
** Shizuku comments that Yukino is naturally suited to the boke role.
** In the {{manga}}, Kanade forms this routine with Yurippe; Kanade is the boke, and Yurippe is the Tsukkomi.
* ButtMonkey: Sakuya, who gets mistreated by most anybody, despite being generally very nice to everyone herself.
* ChekhovsGun: A coupon for a free parfait.
* DeadpanSnarker: Kanade -- most of the time, probably in an attempt to keep her cool in front of Yukino.
* TheDitz: Subverted with Yukino, as while she appears like that at first (since she tends to enjoy life as it comes without sweating the "little details"), she's actually the most level-headed of the four characters.
* EroticEating: Fingers. There was cake. Plus the [[spoiler:rice-off-the-mouth kiss in episode 7]].
* FanGirl: Sakuya is Kanade's InUniverse personal fangirl... not that the latter is particularly happy about it.
* {{Fanservice}}: Surprisingly averted, given the show's content. Even the swimming pool episode is rather subdued, much to Sakuya's dismay.
* FingerSuckHealing: Done by Yukino to Kanade at the end of chapter two in the {{manga}}.
* {{Gayngst}}: Averted. Yukino, Kanade, Sakuya, and [[spoiler:arguably Shizuku]] have no problem with liking girls. Their friends don't seem to mind same sex relationships either.
* GenkiGirl: Sakuya
* GenreSavvy: Sakuya is too savvy for her own good.
* HomoeroticDream
* HopelessSuitor: Sakuya, who just won't give up on Kanade.
* HotSpringsEpisode: Subverted. Although Sakuya expects there to be one, there really ain't.
* ImprobablyFemaleCast: No male characters in sight of any relative importance, though a few can be seen at the train station.
* InnocentCohabitation: They're twins. 'Nuff said.
* IntertwinedFingers: Kanade and Yukino love to hold hands that way.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler: Shizuku does not want to get between Yukino and Kanade. [[TwinThreesomeFantasy Or does]] [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shizuku2.jpg she?]]]]
* LuckyCharmsTitle: Candy☆Boy.
* LuminescentBlush: Almost everyone at almost all times.
* {{Meganekko}}: Kanade. No, really.
* NoseBleed:
** Sakuya, while fantasizing about an onsen bath visit with Kanade.
** Even moreso in the manga. Kanade seems to suffer [[NoseBleed nosebleeds]] a lot, like when Yuki gives her FingerSuckHealing or cosplays.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/candy_boy_ahem.jpg Would you believe it]]?
* OddCouple: Despite being sisters, Yukino and Kanade have quite different personalities. For one, Kanade is much more serious and often gets irritated by her sister's ditziness, so it's amazing they get along so well.
* OfficialCouple: Guess who. Isn't it sad you were DemotedToExtra, Sakuya?
* TheOjou: Sakuya's family is much, much richer than the Sakurais.
* PettingZooPeople: Yukino appears as a kitsunekko in Kanade's dream.
* PoolScene: Episode [=EX02=]
* QuiveringEyes: Sakuya and Yukino both have a tendency to do this.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: For all the [[GirlsLove yuri vibe]] the makers obviously strive for, the relationship between Kanade en Yukino still comes closest to this kind--although it's nevertheless a bit unusual among sisters.
* RubberFace: Kanade does this to Yukino a lot.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: Sakuya is open and vocal about her crush on Kanade.
* SliceOfLife
* StalkerWithACrush:
** Sakuya.
** Also Kanade. Yukino calls her out on it in [=EX02=] [[spoiler:where it's revealed Kanade came to watch Yukino swim five times in one week]].
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: As well as humorous, the note on Kanade and Yukino's door, if read by a passerby, would seem rather suspicious. Subverted since they really aren't shown doing anything explicit in their room.
--> Note on the door: Seriously, why won't anyone knock on the door? Really. It's not that we're doing anything suspicious, but it's common sense to knock on the door. Yes, we may be a damn shameless couple, but we aren't doing anything! There isn't much else I want to say about this, but let me say it again: KNOCK DAMNIT!!
* SweetTooth: Yukino loves sweets... and gets constantly scolded by Kanade.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Kanade is more tomboyish and Yukino more the girly one, though it's in mannerisms rather than appearance.
* {{Tsundere}}:
** Kanade towards Yukino; a relatively mild example.
** Shizuku depending on how you view her. She does have a tsuntsun side towards everyone except for Yukino, the sole recipient of her deredere side. However [[spoiler:while unclear, it is hinted at that Shizuku likes Kanade and acts tsuntsun towards Kanade out of jealousy.]]
* {{Twincest}}: [[HideYourLesbians Nothing explicit]] but [[{{Subtext}} a LOT]] [[{{IncestSubtext}} implied]].
* TwoTeacherSchool: Which is to be expected in a four-character anime.
* UmbrellaOfTogetherness: The whole plot of one episode involves Kanade trying to arrange for her and Yukino to walk home under one umbrella.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Yukino.
