** Rei Kuroki is a pretty blatant {{expy}} of [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura Akemi]] crossed with [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Fate Testarossa]]. Her visual appearance, [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong theme song]] in episode five, and Modus Operandi are those of Homura. Her [[spoiler: motivation, personality, relation with other characters and role in the story]] are more like those of Fate. [[spoiler: She appears to be fundamentally a good person who commits atrocities because of a metaphorical gun against her head, has nothing personally against the protagonist (and may well like her) and is driven by the motivation to restore a lost family]].
