Tropes that appear in Kuttsukiboshi
- Abduction Is Love: In the second episode, Kiiko, searching for her cellphone in the P.E. closet is attacked and chloroformed by Aya. Aya then ties her up and forces herself on her for some days. After the ordeal, does Kiiko still have feelings for her attacker, her ex-girlfriend Aya? Damn right she does. In this case, the victim, Kiiko, was already in love with the abductor. As for Aya, this was one of the ways she felt she could redeem herself for cheating on Kiiko with her brother. Yeah, we are as puzzled as you are.
- Brother-Sister Incest: Aya and her brother Kōta
- But Now I Must Go: Subverted in the last few minutes.
- Cannot Spit It Out: Aya is pretty terrible at communicating with Kiiko and tends to go straight for sexual interaction instead. With progressively more force.
- Dude, She's Like, in a Coma!: Kiiko attempts this on a sleeping Aya, but backs out at the last moment, only for Aya to suddenly kiss her.
- Forceful Kiss: Quite a few, with the kisser alternating between Aya and Kiiko.
- Gainax Ending
- Gayngst: Averted.
- Hair Contrast Duo: Inverted as the blonde one (Aya) is clearly more perversive than the brunette (Kiiko). And a little bit more Psycho Lesbian, regarding her actions in the beginning of the second episode
- Holding Hands
- Ironic Echo: When Kikko first finds out Aya hasn't been wearing any panties while they are making out, it's done for humor. The second time she notices, they have drifted apart and are forcing each other to feel their bodies.
- Leaving You to Find Myself: Aya is going to leave Japan and Kiiko because of her brother's death.
- Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Aya is the dark one while Kiiko is the light one.
- Lipstick Lesbian: Both of the girls are very girly and exhibit no signs of masculinity whatsoever. They quite literally discuss make-up together.
- Love Confession: Face-sucking resolves the "does she like me?" tension in the first six minutes, but discussing their emotions waits until the last minute. And boy, do they find ways to pad this story out.
- Making Love in All the Wrong Places: The school is practically Kiiko and Aya's love nest. Luckily enough, Summer vacation leaves the school grounds vacant enough for their alone time. The second episode introduces the P.E. closet, which wasn't quite consensual, and even the subway train, where the most explicit on-screen scene takes place in the two OVAs.
- Mind over Matter: Kiiko Kawakami, who is able to use telekinesis.
- As the story continues, her power grows exponentially, from the ability to read people's minds, memories, and even teleport to distant planets. It's implied that her emotions fuel the extent of her powers.
- Mind Screw: Aya has reasons for a lot of what she does... probably... and then there's the ending, when all of a sudden Kiiko teleports herself and Aya to another planet where they live together isolated from the rest of mankind.
- Minimalist Cast: The only real characters are lovers Kiiko and Aya, and Aya's brother Kota. Background characters have very few lines and contributions to the story.
- One Gender School
- OVA: A two part one.
- Psycho Lesbian: Aya. In the second episode she attacks and chloroforms Kiiko, then ties her up and forces herself on her repeatedly for about a day or so.
- Relationship Upgrade: Happens after the first six minutes. Not much Gayngsting here!
- Schoolgirl Lesbians
- Secret Keeper: Aya Saitō, of Kiiko's telekinetic powers.
- Sexy Discretion Shot: Several instances due to this OVA being ecchi, but not explicitly so. Averted in a scene on the train in the second episode.
- Spit-Trail Kiss: This can be seen clearly in the official promo.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Played with; both girls are very feminine and act softly, but Aya is way too perverted for Kiiko to handle.
- Two-Person Pool Party: This OVA features the school's private pool as the unfortunate victim of Aya and Kiiko's private time. Summer can have that effect in anyone, it seems.
- Yandere: Kiiko, for Aya. In the second episode's climax, after teleporting her way onto the airplane that Aya was on, she threatens to kill her if she doesn't explain her actions.
