* CharacterOverlap: Several characters from Manga/LoveIsInTheBag and Manga/AngelCrush appear in each other's series.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamShot: At the end of Volume 4, when [[spoiler:Calvin sees that Kate has turned into a bag]]. Given the ForeShadowing that has been happening since the end of the third book, the implication is that [[spoiler:Kate may never come back]].

Added DiffLines:

* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining
** Mark Spencer is the best high school basketball player and possibly ''the best'' basketball player in the country. However, because he spends so much time studying basketball and working out in the gym, he has NoSocialSkills, CannotTalkToWomen, and tends to [[ShyFingerTwiddling twiddle his fingers]] when trying to ask a personal question.
** Calvin Jacobs is probably the second best player in the country and is an academic achiever with consistently high grades. He's also the president of the astronomy club. The trade-off is that he is a dense idiot when it comes to love, often overlooking grand gestures of affection from his adoring fans.
** Later, Louis V. gains a tremendously effective crossover and hook-shot, but he has also begun to be blind to the girls around him.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: When [[ButtMonkey Sir Joey]] gets hit with the taser in ''Bag Together'', a metal plate is seen on his skull, which is a reference to Volume 4 when he was hit with a baseball bat and his skull cracks.

Added DiffLines:

* OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo: While the original series follows a NumberedSequels format, the stories set after the ending are named ''Love is in the Bag: The Great Donut Caper'' followed by ''Bag Together: A Love is in the Bag Sequel''.

Added DiffLines:

** Louis V. suffers the same curse after the [[spoiler:TimeSkip in Volume 5]] as he is pursued by the L.A.M.E. (The Louis-Appreciating Mark Enthusiasts.)

Added DiffLines:

* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Mark Spencer has many admirers...including a very sizable male fan group named the S.M.A.C.K. (The Special Mark Appreciation Club of Kripbam)
** Given how Kara treats him most of the time, and that he goes to an all-boys school, he often feels that he OnlyHasSameSexAdmirers.
