* The Hachi-P song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8RDiHUypo8 Lynne]] contains many allusions to rebirth (ex., the cicada's cries, continuously circling around the same track). Listening to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmQOshp1LGc the music box version]] clarifies between each group of stanzas, there is a set of tones in the background that loops four times each time it changes. Why? Because [[{{Four is Death}} Four is Death.]]
* Just an interesting tidbit I realized, but in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8L75guzMn4 The Tailor Shop on Enbizaka]], the tailor [[spoiler: kills people with her scissors]]. This is similar to the Greek Fates, who would [[spoiler:cut people's life thread with their scissors]].
** Same troper, with another realization about the same song. This song is part of series depicting the Seven Deadly Sins, with this one being Envy. The difference between envy and jealousy is that envy is wanting what you don't have (i.e. I'm envious of your cool skateboard), while jealousy is someone else getting something you feel you should get (i.e. I'm jealous of the attention my boyfriend goves other girls). Knowing that, you might think that the song better describes envy than jealousy. [[spoiler: Until you learn that he wasn't her husband, thus making her envious of the women who had him, as oppossed to jealous for the attention he's giving them.]]

* This probably sounds silly, but I used to wonder what the "infinity" sign in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQih8wmIn_M‎ Bad End Night]] means. Then, watching the sequels, and discovering that the story is presented as some sort of GroundhogDayLoop, I realized that the infinity symbol is to signify the endless loops that have continued indefinitely.

* [[{{Vocaloid}} Vocaloid Kaito]] invokes one of these with his (well, Kettaro's) version of the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTOngDS0dRI&feature=related Hatsune Miku no Soushitsu]]. Initially, it sounds just like a strange techno-pop Kaito song with static in. But then you watch the video... wait. Why is Kaito suddenly screaming in agony in the middle of the verse? Why did the screen suddenly go grayscale, with bursts of static intruding on the image? How come the lyrics went out of sync with his mouth? Why are his movements getting weaker, like it's difficult to stand? Why is he collapsing to his knees, clutching his head, but still wearing that serene smile and singing the peppy techno song? Well, that's an easy one: his file is being corrupted, ''hard''. In the middle of a song - and Kaito knows it. But he's a computer program designed to sing and dance, not show emotion. So despite the fact that he's managed to break through earlier, in order to scream, well... he's got a program to run. Face stuck in a static smile, being eaten apart by a virus, Kaito sings his song.

* In ''Kagome, Kagome (Circle You, Circle You)'', poor Ruko can be seen getting [[{{Hermaphrodite}} his]] [[OffWithHisHead head cut off]] by the scientists in charge of the [[ImmortalityImmorality immortality project]]. After the deed is done, you can see his head far away from his body and crying. AKA, ''still'' crying. ''[[AndIMustScream His head is still alive!]]''

** Speaking of "A Clingy Boy"... Toward the end of the song, there is a line saying that [[spoiler:the boy thought he would see his beloved soon, but that she disappeared again]]. Combine that with his behaviour during years 1-6 - he keeps hurting himself in various ways, even saying that all his bones were broken, and doesn't care that his house is burning, only surviving through sheer luck. Was he repeatedly trying to commit suicide [[spoiler:because he couldn't get over her death]]?

* When you get past the fanservice, ''Spice!'' has some...rather unsettling implications that can turn [[TheCasanova Len]] into a borderline VillainProtagonist; he courts girls constantly, has sex with them, dumps them the minute he gets what he wants, and repeats the process as much as he pleases, all while expressing a cheerfully nihilistic attitude about the whole thing and not caring about any of the girls he hurts (to put it into perspective, WordOfGod says that ''RIP=RELEASE'' is the sequel to ''Spice!''; the song is about Luka being driven [[{{Yandere}} insane]], and starts wondering about [[IfICantHaveYou killing him if he doesn't fall in love with her]]).

** Well, {{mothy}} has confirmed that ''Venomania'' takes place centuries before ''Daughter of Evil'', so it's most likely a MythologyGag.

* Rin and Len's most common fanon portrayal, with Rin being more emotional and impulsive and Len being more rational and composed, makes sense when you think of their motif; Rin and Len are typically seen as two halves of a whole, with ''Ri''n being the ''ri''ght half and ''Le''n being the ''le''ft. The right side of the brain typically operates on emotion while the left side operates on logic.

** Also, notice how each new Captain Hook has a hook for a hand. After Len dons his Hook garb, he now has a hook in place of his left hand. Could this mean that to play the part, each new Captain had to ''chop his own hand off?''
