Like any teenage boy, Takeru is in the market for a girlfriend. Unlike most teenage boys, all the girls in his inner circles have fallen head over heels for him. And now he has to figure out how to pick the one for him without breaking any hearts. This should be fun
Read it here.
One Divine Mess contains examples of:
- Chekhov's Gun: In each girl's confession scene, Takeru takes note of what scent their perfume is. This ultimately allows him to figure out which girl he's meeting up with after his Zany Scheme.
- Clueless Chick Magnet: Takeru. It's what causes the whole mess.
- Demoted to Extra: Yamato. He's never even seen in the story at all, only mentioned; at least Iori got to participate in Takeru's Zany Scheme for pairing up Ken and Miyako and Daisuke is temporarily dating Hikari again.
- Jyou has it even worse since he's not part of the plot at all.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Despite having decided Hikari is the girl for him, Takeru hooks her back up with Daisuke because he thinks that's what she'll want.
- Like Brother and Sister: Takeru ultimately decides against going out with Sora because he'll always see her as the girl who dated his older brother.
- Official Couple: By the end, Taichi/Sora, Koushiro/Mimi, Ken/Miyako and Takeru/Hikari.
- Pair the Smart Ones: Technically behind the Ken/Miyako pairing but it's a genuine healthy relationship.
- Puppy Love: Mimi was Takeru's first crush. He's since moved on though.
- Take That!: The author cannot stand the canon epilogue, taking pot shots at it whenever possible.
- The Dragonball franchise is also lampooned, with Takeru thinking his brother and Iori are nuts for liking it. Said lampooning of Dragonball is accompanied by the mocking of Dora the Explorer and its ilk.
- Woman Scorned: What Takeru thinks is going to happen when the girls find out about his manipulations. Fortunately adverted in actuality though they do mess with him a little as payback.
