* TheSimpleGestureWins: Karen Tendou is the most popular girl in her school and has to turn down dramatic {{Love Confession}}s almost daily. Which comes as a shock to everyone when the boy who wins her heart is Keita Amano, a socially-awkward loner. Tendou falls head-over-heels for Amano not because of any romantic gesture he made, but simply because (even after declining Tendou's invitation to join) Amano defended Tendou and her club from ridicule [[WhatYouAreInTheDark without even knowing she was around to see it]].



* ThatCameOutWrong: In episode 9, Uehara screaming "I choose you!" to Chiaki over the phone and then immediately hanging up causes Amano, who was nearby, along with Chiaki's sister Konoha to think Uehara was giving her a LoveConfession. However, he actually just meant he'd rather see Chiaki in a relationship with Amano, since the two share a lot more stuff in common that he does with Tendo.

** Volume 10 had Amano duel Main in a fighting game for "ownership" of Aguri. While he won the first round, Main quickly adapts to the game and throttles him in the second. By the last round, they're on pretty equal footing, getting each other to a final sliver, but we learn very quickly that Amano loses.

Added DiffLines:

* ProductionThrowback: In volume 9, Karen finds a card game that President of ''LightNovel/SeitokaiNoIchizon'' made.

Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: The first episode has Tendo bring Amano to the game club and introduce several members who are given comically compelling backstories such that the audience assumes they will be the main characters. But then Amano refuses to join the club and none of them other than Tendo are more than extremely minor characters.

But then Amano refuses to join the club and none of them other than Tendo are more than extremely minor characters.


* AcquaintedInRealLife: Initially Keita is only close to two people, a fellow MMO player and an amateur game creator he's been supporting and talking with online, each of whom he talks to with a different name. Not long after Uehara learns of these two individuals and how much they mean to him, he finds out that Chiaki is both of these individuals, and his two identities are equally precious to her.

* AudienceSurrogate: Uehara can be seen as filling this position, as he frequently comments on the increasing absurdity of the relationship drama transpiring around him and especially on the ridiculous extremes to which FateDrivesUsTogether is subverted in the case of Chiaki and Amano. Most notably, when [[spoiler:Chiaka gets out of revealing her true identity to Amano by having her sister pretend to be Mono and Nobe]], he decides it's not his place to interfere and instead continues to have a passive role. Played with in that Uehara is just as involved in the implausible dramatics as everyone else is.

* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler:During the class trip, some antagonistic members of Tasuku's group decide to mock him and call Aguri his "whore of a girlfriend". But ''he's'' not the one this trope applies to; Amano does. While Tasuku does get mad, he decides that he doesn't want to make a scene and ruin Amano's enjoyment for the last couple of days. Amano, meanwhile, rushes in to defend Aguri's honor, but his almost beatdown of these kids means that Tasuku's going to have to deal with them for the remainder of the trip.]]
