* BehindTheMask: BeneathTheMask:


When her management suddenly saddles her with a radio show, she's suitably not thrilled because the pay wasn't that good to begin with. But when a food poisoning-related incident nearly dooms the show before it starts (and forces Yutaka to make a prolonged stay in the ladies' room), the production staff somehow manage to salvage situation by using a chance discovery... That one of their assistants, Harumi Tanaka, shared the same voice as her! Yutaka wasn't pleased of course, and then promptly quit. It was just one dinky radio program, after all. She had other jobs she could turn to anyway...

* TheDeterminator: While Yutaka's always been serious about her work as an idol, this aspect of her only gets amplified post scandal, where absolutely ''nothing'' will stop her from getting her assigned work done, no matter how ridiculous it is. Often played for laughs however, particularly in Chapter 26, where she has to run a hundred-kilometer route, just to hand-deliver copies of her new single to listeners of the O/A radio show. Even through the rain. [[UpToEleven Or up a mountain during a blinding blizzard]]. [[BeyondTheImpossible Or during live-fire exercises of the JSSDF]].

* BerserkButton: Showing a lack of ambition is sure to set off Yutaka, ''especially'' when the person in question actually has the skills to suceed or excel at whatever they're doing. It causes her to blow up on Harumi when the latter seems mostly fine with her very awkward stand-up routine, and was ''the'' primary case of her estrangement with her older sister Sayaka (who was an extremely gifted person who could literally do anything, and yet was just letting her talents go to waste).



* Tsundere: Yutaka, in a non-romantic manner, whenever she makes an excuse to check on whatever it is Harumi is doing. She even gives the classic tsundere line while she and Ootsuka are heading to the theater where will try her stand-up routine at.

* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Yutaka doesn't really think that she's a good person, even in the wake of the scandal that mostly killed off her reputation as an idol. Harumi doesn't agree.

* BlindingBangs: Tsuda, the script writer for O/A, has these as a defining feature.



* ItAmusedMe: Most of the ideas that Radio Ace's producer Taki comes up with for segments in O/A boil down to whatever she thought was interesting at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGunman: Deepthroat, one of the fans that sent in fanmail in chapter 7, makes an ''actual'' personal appearance in chapter 27, and yes, he's an actual submariner -- in fact, he's the ''captain of a US Navy nuclear attack submarine''.


* CringeComedy: Not intentional, but Harumi's stand-up routine during the amateurs event couldn't be seen as anything but this. It was so awkward that Yutaka (who was secretly watching with Itsuka in the audience) could barely watch. Ironically, Harumi is actually much funnier while she's on-air, likely due to the fact that she can't actually ''see'' the people she's performing to.

* NonPromotion: Yutaka's manager Itsuka becomes President Itsuka, when she starts up her own talent agency to continue managing Yutaka... Except this has been what she's ''always'' been doing anyway. The only thing that changed really was her job title, but that's it.

--> '''Yutaka''' : It... It's not like I came to cheer her on or anything!


Added DiffLines:

* WaitingForABreak: Harumi wants to be a comedian (and in Chapter 9 is actually shown doing stand-up comedy at an amateur event) but apart from her part in the O/A radio show, her "real" job is delivering newspapers in the morning.

Added DiffLines:

* DynamicEntry: Yutaka at the end of the first chapter, via knee to Harumi's face.
