We’re Aiming For Love Now

Peach Taste

Angelic Girl

  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Negama, though she has a lot more self-esteem issues than most.
  • Beta Couple: Nana and Kei to Negama and Tsukimiya.
  • Berserk Button: Nana does not like Kei mentioning she's been with men, or whatever knowledge she's gained from those experiences.
  • Bifauxnen: Kei. She's somewhat of a Deconstruction of this archetype, as it's eventually revealed that most of her past girlfriends were using because they viewed her as less intimidating than sex with a real boy, or viewed her a "practice" before getting an actual boyfriend.
  • Gayngst: Negema worries that Tsukimiya is straight. Kei is revealed to be mostly a fling or passing fancy to most of the girls she's been with.
  • UST: Negama and Tsukimiya even after they become a couple.
