* {{Adorkable}}: Kouki is such a Japanese history nerd that when Rio invites him to choose a place for their date, he decides to take them on a historical tour in the countryside. His passion for it is so infectious that Rio actually learns a lot from him and manages to get a perfect score on her test (on a technicality thanks to Kouki).


* BiTheWay: Rio sleeps with her compensated dating clients, and is also in a secret romance with her classmate Naoko. [[spoiler:She later leaves her compensated dating work and also stops being romantically involved with Naoko when she starts falling for Kouki]].

* MistakenIdentity: The fact that Rio and Kouki have the same last name Ozawa is what brings them together. A photo printer shop switches their pictures by mistake, and they first meet to swap photos before Rio starts to get more involved with him.

* TeacherStudentRomance: Thankfully not within the same school, but the trope still applies nonetheless. To emphasize this, even at her most lovestruck, Rio still calls him "Sensei" (teacher) instead of by name.

Later, we see him making his death certificate (much to his cousin's frustration), creating a funeral photo, and even counting down his days. It takes until the latter third of the movie for Rio to learn all of this, however.

[[spoiler:After Nao commits suicide, Rio decides to drop the pretense and confess everything to Tomoko. Even though she gets angry and wants to break off with them, when Rio is hospitalized, Tomoko chooses to take care of her]].

''My Rainy Days'' (天使の恋) [[note]]''Tenshi no Koi'' -- "An Angel's Love"[[/note]] is a 2009 Japanese romance film starring Nozomi Sasaki and Shosuke Tanihara. The movie is an adaptation of a cellphone novel.

The film follows the story of two different people named Ozawa -- Rio Ozawa, a high-school student who, along with some friends, does ''enjō kosai'' (compensated dating) to make money; and Kouki Ozawa, a university professor who keeps to himself. In spite of Rio being surrounded by a group of girls loyal to her, she's actually cold-hearted and manipulative, even roping in an innocent classmate to do compensated dating with them. However, when she encounters Kouki by chance, she finds herself falling madly in love with the quiet professor, and slowly starts to turn her whole life around in the process.
