* {{Lolicon}}: Fan service involving Mimi, though somewhat subverted by the fact she is ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.

All in all, the series is a total {{seinen}} bait, featuring nigh everything older male audiences' hearts may desire: sexy girls, [[CoolOldGuy respectable guys]], MindScrew of a plot, alcohol, blood, and a considerable amount of sex in all flavors. Be prepared to wince a couple of times, though, as the series often blurs the line between its sex and violence, and fully exploits its main character's immortality [[GoodThingYouCanHeal to put her in situations that often lead to the end of a horror story]].

* DVDCommentary: Creator/FUNimation provides a commentary for episode 2, with Creator/JMichaelTatum (the ADR director, plus the voice of Ihika), Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard (Rin), Creator/JamieMarchi (Mimi) and RobertMcCollum (Kouki). It has a "titular" [[IncrediblyLamePun pun]] and random profanity ([[Creator/JamieMarchi "Fuck!"]] [[Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard "Oh dear."]]) before the opening credits are even over, and continues on from there.



* Creator/RieKugimiya: As the loli-genius Mimi.

* NoodleIncident: Rin's "view" of OdaNobunaga, which leaves Mishio's sense of history in tatters.

* BadAssBookworm - Mimi, especially in Episode 6.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Though she seems [[TheFool carefree and happy-go-lucky]], Rin instantly reveals herself to be one hell of a {{Badass}} when the going gets tough.

** Laura's standard outfit is a black catsuit, but it's not particularly tight, so it's more {{badass}} than fanservicey. (Except for one brief, inexplicable shot where it was unzipped enough to [[AbsoluteCleavage show off her cleavage]].)

* BadAss: Rin, by far - although she cheats a bit by being [[NighInvulnerability nearly invulnerable]].

Added DiffLines:

* MenGetOldWomenGetReplaced: Almost all recurring female characters being (or becoming) immortal. The lead characters Rin and Mimi are immortals and remain at the same physical age throughout the series' 65-year span, while their nameless female informants are replaced with their own younger apprentices after every TimeSkip. Meanwhile, guys like Tamotsu, Maeno, and Teruki are allowed to reach venerable ages on-screen. The only obvious exception is the BigBad Apos but he [[spoiler:is eventually revealed to be a hermaphrodite]].

* ChekhovsBoomerang: A rather interesting case in episode three is that what the gun actually ''is'' isn't shown at all, and is only hinted at until TheReveal. [[spoiler:Shuggo's Time Spore is kept in a jewelry case next to some pictures of him.]] After [[spoiler:Maeno leaves to save Rin]], all that's shown is the empty case, though from the [[spoiler:shape of the cushion]], it becomes evident that whatever was in there was [[spoiler:small and round.]] It's eventually used again when [[spoiler:[[MemeticMutation Rin takes it from Mishio... and EATS IT]].]]

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: [[spoiler:Rin, for the rest of ETERNITY. 30 years from now, it's gonna be SO awkward for her son and any other descendants to be repeatedly asked "Is that you cute LITTLE sister?" again and again...]]

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Teruki's blonde hair is presumably a dye job, and Ruon's orange hair is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since [[spoiler:she exists in {{Cyberspace}} and uses a [[RobotGirl gynoid body]] in the real world]], but there's no explanation for Rin or Mimi, whose hair are green and lavender respectively.
