''Akkan Baby'' is a three-volume shoujo manga revolving around the adventures of two 16-year-old TooDumbToLive rock band groupies named Yuki and Shigeru. These two meet at a concert and start having a carefree FriendsWithBenefits relationship until some of Shigeru's more down-to-earth friends mention the possibility of pregnancy. After some humor based on Shigeru's inability to read a pregnancy test, she discovers she's pregnant. HilarityEnsues.

----
!!''Akkan Baby'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AnAesop: Parents are people. They make mistakes, but they still love their children and will work very hard to provide for them. Speaking of children, always teach them about contraception, so there won't be another case of Yuki and Shigeru on your hands.
* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: Downplayed but this seems to be the case of Puni's parents.
* BerserkButton: Don't make the pet seal of Yuki's father cry or he'll kick your ass.
** Yuki lets any and all personal insults slide off his back. Only disrepecting Shigeru or his friends will provoke his wrath.
* BigBrotherMentor: For what it's worth, Rui and Nina are very supportive and do what they can to help Yuki and Shigeru. Considering that the main characters are nothing more but minor groupies to them, it's quite commendable.
* ColorFailure:
** Yuki turns into a statue for four hours after learning that Shigeru is pregnant. He goes into an even worse state once Rui tells him it's up to him and Shigeru to decide whether they want to keep it or abort it (and scar Shigeru in the process).
** Shigeru's parents are white with shock when [[spoiler:Shigeru asks them if she can keep the baby.]]
* CutenessProximity: Yuki when he first touches Puni after finding him on the doorstep. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming It's extremely endearing.]]
* FatGirl: Mika, however this PlayedForDrama, as [[spoiler: she put on weight due to eating as a way of coping with the stress of being pregnant with Puni and not being able to tell Shigeo]].
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Mika, although, this is probably invoked, as she appears to be be following the gankuro style ( which involves tan skin, exaggerated brightly colored makeup,and dyed blonde/bleached hair)
* DeathGlare: Most prominent on page 137, when Yuki delivers one to Mika, when he finds out [[spoiler: she intended to abandon Puni]]
* DoorstopBaby: Puni, who was left on Yuki's doorstep.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Shigeru and Yuki's relationship until romance ensues.
* GenderBlenderName: Shigeru is usually a boy's name, and Yuki can be a girls name. This actually explains why Shigeru's mom thought it was okay to let her stay over Yuki's house.
* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Played VERY straight, at least in Yuki and Shigeru's case, while, in Mika's case, this is played with, as she initially intended to get an abortion upon finding out she pregnant with Puni but she was too far along [[https://www.mangatown.com/manga/akkan_baby/v01/c000/149.html]]
* HappilyMarried: Shigeru's parents.
* IWasQuiteALooker: Downplayed, as she isn't really bad looking but, otherwise, Mika fits this trope of a FormerlyFit example [[https://www.mangatown.com/manga/akkan_baby/v01/c000/148.html]]
* JawDrop: After the ColorFailure, Shigeru's parents' reaction. Also Yuki and Shigeru when they walk in on Rui and Nina having sex.
** This also happens on page 138
* JerkassHasAPoint: The doctor that yells at Shigeru and Yuki is pretty harsh, and his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and it affects Shigeru even after Puni gets out of the hospital, but it'd be a lie to say that his sentiments weren't shared by a few readers. For what its worth, it motivates Shigeru and Yuki to do better (complete with parenting manuals)
* LoveYouAndEverybody: After Shigeru asks Yuki if he loves her. She turns out to be second, after Rui and before [[{{Squick}} that dog he kissed once]], after which Yuki proceeds to say that Shigeru is the only human he has ever kissed.
* MeetCute: Shigeru and Yuki.
* MissConception: Shigeru asks "what's a condom?" in all seriousness. Yuki is similarly unfamiliar with birth control.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Why Mika came back Puni after [[spoiler: trying to abandon him]]
* NamesTheSame: In-universe example. Puni's actual name is [[spoiler: "Shigeru", just like the female main character.]]
* NotQuiteTheRightThing: A rather light-hearted example, combined with some [[LethallyStupid lethal stupidity]]. Shigeru and Yuki really do have pure intentions but, unfortunately, lack a lot of common sense.
* NiceGirl: Shigeru, without a doubt.
* PapaWolf: Yuki is very protective of both Shigeru and Puni. In the case of the latter, it's to the point where [[spoiler: he initially refuses to give Puni back to his real mother once he found out that she originally intended to abandon him.]]
* PetTheDog: When the school principal [[spoiler:saves Shigeru from a miscarriage]].
* PoorCommunicationKills: Mika's boyfriend Shigeo is at first insensitive to her current state, even going so far as to make fun of her weight, but after Yuki accuses him of abandoning her because she was pregnant, he's completely shocked. [[spoiler: This is because Mika never even told him that she was pregnant. She was too afraid to tell him that she was pregnant with Puni, and he mistakenly believed that her being constantly sad around him, fidgeting like she had something to say and withdrawnness towards having sex with him meant that she hated him. Once he hears the truth he's totally willing to raise the child with her, even going so far as to offer to marry her.]]
* RealityEnsues: With pretty much everything. Justified, as the entire series is all about the two main characters learning about teen pregnancy.
** Yuki and Shigeru initially start having sex because they accidentally stumble upon Rui and Nina having sex in the bushes and decide that they want to try it. They continue to keep having sex but, unlike their idols neither of them know what contraception, is (much to the horror of anyone that asks them). It's no real surprise that Shigeru gets pregnant.
** Puni and the drama related to him. Along with showing just how hard it is to take care of a baby as two 16-year olds, it shows that not all teen couples think like Shigeru and Yuki and see teen pregnancy as something exciting. To most, it's actually frightening and not something that every teen is (or would be) ready for. This is seen with Puni's mother Mika, [[spoiler: who becomes completely stressed out because she was afraid to tell Shigeo about being pregnant, balloons in weight due to eating to cope with the stress and eventually tries to abandon Puni like a lot of teen mothers do (especially, when, unlike the main couple, they don't have any help/resources)]].
*** In one special attempt to take care of Puni, Shigeru and Yuki pile up a mountain of futons on him in order to keep him warm. He stops breathing and they have to take him to the hospital, where they're rightfully chewed out by an angry doctor for such a stunt.
** After taking care of Puni, Shigeru and Yuki think that's proof that they can handle a kid and are confident that they can tell Shigeru's parents that they want to have the baby. Shigeru's father expectedly objects to this [[spoiler:and then runs away]], with her mother telling them that taking care of a baby for just a few days is obviously different from taking care of one for your entire life.
** Turns out that when a school falls into delinquency, changes will be made. The board won't just accept it as is, [[spoiler: which is why the principal comes dangerously close to losing her job when the school becomes a chaotic hellhole.]]
*** [[spoiler: Also, teachers won't want to teach in an environment where they have no control over the students, which is why a lot of them resign and make it impossible for the principal to re-instill any control over the growing anarchy because she's just one person.]]
** A small example happens with Yuki not wanting to give Puni back to Mika upon finding out [[spoiler: she intended to abandon him]], having grown attached to him.
* RunningGag: Shigeru and Yuki asking what a condom is. Not to mention the unique reactions from the people around them when they hear that question.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Yuki sees Puni being left on his doorstep as this, going by the fact that Puni's mother said she'd come back for him in one week. She comes back three days early, but as Rui correctly guesses [[spoiler: she never had any intentions of coming back at first. Even though her guilt and love for Puni changed her mind, Yuki still takes this fact very poorly.]]
* TakeMyHand: When Mika is about to fall off the telephone pole, Yuki puts his contempt for her aside and grabs her hand to pull her up [[spoiler: ...but she falls anyway since a) Yuki is very scrawny and b) Mika is twice Yuki's weight. Luckily Rui and the neighbors save her from being a bloody mess on the pavement.]]
* TeenPregnancy: [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs On LSD (the manga, not the parents).]]
* TinkleInTheEye: Puni to Shigeru and Yuki.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: [[spoiler: The name Shigeru and Yuki settle on for their son is Muni, after the onomatopoeia for his soft round cheeks.]]
