  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Kimikiss (キミキス / "Kissing You") is a dating simulation game for the PS2. Released by Enterbrain in 2006, Kimikiss has become a media franchise, including manga, Light Novel, and has been made into an anime as of 2007-2008 entitled Kimikiss: Pure Rouge.


Tropes used in KimiKiss include:
  • Adaptation Distillation — Arguably, Kimikiss: Pure Rouge.
  • Alliterative Name — The title is sometimes rendered as Kimi Kiss. Also Mizusawa Mao.
  • Cannot Spit It Out — Kouichi and Yumi, even after they got hooked up as witnessed by Megumi, much to her chagrin.
    • Also a major (if brief) plot point in Mitsuki's route of the game owing to her Arranged Marriage.
  • Canon Foreigner — Eiji Kai
  • Choose Your Own Adventure — Sort of. The Kimikiss: Various Heroines manga focuses on Kouichi hooking up with one of the girls for a good 7-8 chapters. Afterwards, the entire story is reset and another girl is chosen, so fans of certain girls can just choose to read a certain set of chapters and nothing else.
    • For the curious, here's the complete listing:
      • Mao — chapters 1-8
      • Asuka — chapters 9-17
      • Mitsuki — chapters 18-26
      • Eriko — chapters 27-36
      • Yumi — chapters 37-45
      • Nana and Narumi get their own special chapter detailing their innocent adventure into Les Yay territory. I wish I was making this up.
    • This would later serve as the inspiration for the omnibus format of Amagami SS.
  • Derailing Love InterestsIn the anime, Kouichi's relationship with Yumi gets derailed all thanks to Mao.
  • Depending on the Writer: Pure Rouge Eriko vs. Various Heroines Eriko. Both are superficially the same person (same name, same appearance) and do some of the same things (paper airplane from a failed test, experiment in love), but their personalities are fundamentally different.
  • Detractor Nickname — After the bittersweet end for one of the main characters in the anime Kimikiss: Pure Rouge, some disappointed fans took to calling it "Kimikiss: Pure RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE~!!!"
  • First Girl Wins — Mao (In the anime, for Kouichi)
  • Gargle Blaster — The Berry-Berry Ramen Futami eats at a ramen shop in episode 8.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!Mamiko Noto as the soft-spoken Ojou, Shijo Mitsuki.
  • Last-Minute Hookup — No, seriously, it's literally last minute.
  • Love Triangle — Yumi-Kouchi-Mao and Eriko-Kazuki-Asuka in the anime.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni — Sakino Asuka and Futami Eriko in the Pure Rouge anime.
  • Rule of Drama — Midway through the anime series, all of the principal characters are happily together with the ones they love... Awwwwww~ Now what could possibly go wrong in this setup?
  • Spiritual SuccessorAmagami
  • The Tease — Mao likes to do this a lot with Kouichi. This was removed in the anime.
  • Tsundere — Megumi Kuryuu towards Hiiragi Akira.
  • Victorious Childhood FriendKouichi initially went out with Hoshino before realizing his feelings for Mao.
  • What Is This Thing You Call Love? — Futami Eriko. She "experiments" on our protagonist to find out.
  • Zettai Ryouiki — When Mao and her classmates are in their maid uniforms.
