Added DiffLines:

* ThoseTwoGuys: Baba and Aiba, who serves as Hirotaka's non-Otaku "friends" and has practically no further characterisation beyond that. Hirotaka can't even be bothered to [[AccidentalMisnaming remember their names]], and the one time he gets it right, he confuses one for the other.

Added DiffLines:

* SexyShirtSwitch: Played with in an omake page that showcases the guys' reactions: Tarou just wants Hanako to put it back after she's done with it, while Hirotaka is shivering and complains that he feels like he's just been robbed.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodNerd: All four leads are reasonably attractive and have stable jobs, but are all otaku.


* BickeringCouplePeacefulCouple: Kabakura and Koyanagi are the Bickering, as they're usually at each other's throats, while Narumi and Hirotaka are more lowkey and laidback. However, the former is actually the BetaCouple, since they have been dating for a long time, while Narumi and Hirotaka still go through some new-relationship growing pains.

** Narumi likes otome games, manga, idols, cosplay and even [[BoysLoveGenre BL-related stuff]], and she also draws doujinshi that she sells at Comiket. However, because she has trouble finding a boyfriend due to these hobbies (she even broke up right before the series started), she tries her hardest to [[ClosetGeek hide what she considers an unsavory passion]]. This comically backfires when her childhood friend, Hirotaka (an unabashed gaming otaku), meets her again and starts talking about their otaku hobbies.
** Hirotaka Nifuji is a gamer who always has some kind of gaming device on his person, either a [[UsefulNotes/PlaystationPortable PSP]] or [[UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS 3DS]] in the manga or a [[UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch Switch]] in the anime.

Unlike the other three main characters, he doesn't bother to hide his love for video games and frequently brings them up around his more "normal" co-workers.


* CuteClumsyGirl: Narumi is very awkward when she starts her new job, going so far as to make 300 bad copies.

Added DiffLines:

* AlmostKiss: Played with in Episode 9. Hirotaka and Narumi look like they're headed for this, but it's just their faces passing by as he pulls her into a hug.


Well, it's a learning curve for the spirited, self-conscious Narumi Momose and the much more laidback Hirotaka Nifuji. Narumi's otaku status actually repelled her last boyfriend/co-worker, so much so that it even drove her to quit her previous job. She's trying to stick it out in her current position without anyone discovering her covert fujoshi side, but Hirotaka and even a couple of her other co-workers (who happen to be high school.. [[SlapSlapKiss sweethearts]] and otaku in their own right) figure it out pretty quickly. And from there, it's up to Narumi and co. to figure out how to balance their adult work and romantic lives with their socially frowned-upon interests.

* WallPinOfLove: PlayedForLaughs when Narumi and Koyanagi ask Hirotaka to perform the infamous ''kabe don'' on Kabakura for no other reason than to satisfy their whimsical [[YaoiFangirl BL fantasy]] of having their respective boyfriends get together. Hirotaka is nonplussed, while Kabakura gets annoyed.



* YaoiFangirl: Narumi and Koyanagi bond over their similar passion for BoysLoveGenre, and positively squee when Hirotaka is asked to make a suggestive move on Kabakura.

* YaoiFangirl: Narumi and Koyanagi bond over their similar passion for BoysLoveGenre, spend most of their shopping sprees over BL books, and positively squee eventually question whether it's a good idea to fantasize their respective boyfriends in a relationship; they end up squeeing and taking photos when they ask Hirotaka is asked to make a suggestive move WallPinOfLove on Kabakura.Kabakura, and they also war over the pairing name and the dominant partner.


* RealityEnsues: All characters work in the same workplace. As such, it's inevitable some personal relationships can be strained at times, especially when it's Tarou's ''job'' to supervise and manage. Though Hanako and Tarou work things out, Hanako admits she's fantasized killing Tarou several times in one day.

Though Hanako and Tarou work things out, Hanako admits she's fantasized killing Tarou several times in one day. Being friends with his younger workmates Hirotaka and Narumi also doesn't stop him telling them off if they are slacking off (as seen when Hirotaka needs new glasses).
