* BrokenAesop: The moral of sticking to the ones you care about, which is on its own a good moral, has some UnfortunateImplications in this setting. Kiri has loved Tohya for years and he reciprocates her feelings, but they've never actually done anything relationship-wise because they're waiting until Kiri can to show him that she's BeautifulAllAlong. Akira, on the other hand, loves Kiri and believes she's [[JustTheWayYouAre beautiful already]] and frequently tells her this, but Kiri pushes him away constantly in favor of Tohya. Even though Tohya does return Kiri's feelings regardless of her looking like a man, it still comes off as a bit shallow.

* HotShoujoDad: Kiri's father doesn't just look like a model, he ''is'' one.


* DroppedABridgetOnHim: Kiri is required to do this regularly to her female classmates.


* CuteShotaroBoy: Riku


* LongHairIsFeminine: Kiri envies Natsu, her best friend, for her long-haired.



* YamatoNadeshiko: Kiri envies Natsu, her short, long-haired best friend. (Her personality isn't very Nadeshiko-worthy, though...)


* ACupAngst: Kiri, but only briefly, since a flat chest is much easier to bind down while she's being Tatsuki.

* EvilForeigner: Both played straight and lampshaded by Kanou, who is half-Chinese. He's portrayed as cold and gruff towards anyone other than Riku, until he [[{{Kuudere}} gets to know Kiri/Tatsuki better]]. He has a flashback to people tormenting him because of his heritage, and fell into the stereotype as a result.



* HoYay: Tatsuki and Akira, Riku and Kanou.

High school student Kiri Minase looks like a supermodel, often acts like a fairy tale prince, and is wildly popular with the local schoolgirls- several confess their love every week. Problem is, Kiri is a ''girl''. She hates looking like a man and has tried all her life to become girlier (which hasn't worked too well). She only acts princely to girls who confess their love because she knows what [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited love]] is like and doesn't want to hurt them- otherwise, she acts like a normal teen girl.
She's in love with her neighbor, the effeminate Tohya Enishi, and has been ever since they were young. One day, Tohya decides he wants to become a male model with Kiri's mother's agency. Now, in order for Kiri to stay close to her love interest, she has to become a model, too... But there's a catch. She has to be a ''male'' model, going by the alias "Tatsuki."

* {{Kuudere}}: Tohya is a male example. Natsu is also a bit like this.
