Added DiffLines:

* InnocentCohabitation: Downplayed and subverted. After [[spoiler:being abandoned by her mother]], Miyu briefly moves into the Kotobuki household, where her boyfriend (and the rest of his family) lives. But she moves out shortly after, because both she and Yamato thinks it inappropriate for them to live in the same residence before marriage. Ran and Sayo were more sad to see her leave.


It mainly revolves around three high school "kogals": [[GenkiGirl Ran Kotobuki]], [[DarkAndTroubledPast Miyu Yamazaki]] and [[NiceGirl Aya Hoshino]], and their "adventures" around Shibuya, Japan.

* TheNotLoveInterest: Otohata and Ran. They met each other in what looks like MeetCute moment, and they've crossed paths since then. Otohata is the only one who can cool Ran down when she gets too wild, and Ran's [[ManicPixieDreamGirl enthusiasm]] all but [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosted him]]. Ran had also opened up emotionally to Otohata more than she has with other people. But Ran chose to date Tatsuki, and while Otohata briefly had a crush on Ran, he eventually ends up with Aya.

* WeWantOurJerkBack: In volume 3's omake, Ran gets hit on the head and becomes a demure, hardworking, nice girl. Sayo, who believed that Ran was alien possessed, spent the whole episode trying to bring her back to normal, crying about how her rude, wild and HotBlooded self was the sister she loves best. In a subversion though, Sayo seemed to be the only one who is not happy with Ran's change. Everyone else either welcomes it or is indifferent to it.
