* Those random Scandinavians (which I ''think'' are supposed to be Finns, based on the names, but I could be wrong here, as the guy's name is kinda odd, as far as I've observed) were an interesting addition and all... but c'mon, is it too much to ask to get the {{VA}}s to learn how to ''pronounce their characters' names right''? Eelis' VA did get close with Eelis' name, yeah, but considering that Eelis should be of the same nationality as Yin/Kirsi, not to mention having been closely acquaintaced with her, he really should be capable of getting Kirsi's name right.
** This is a failing of the Japanese language, not the VAs. They don't actually have a "si" sound, so the closest approximation is "shi". Unless you're talking about the dub? In which case, just ignore me.

** Yin's backstory explicitly states that the moon, which has not been visible since the gates appeared, was shining that night. This puts that flashback at least ten years before the events of the first season.

** The age gap being significant but not extreme is probably why his friends call him out on it, but are not greatly disturbed.

** Havoc actually managed to "disappear" and somehow reverted from contractor tu muggle. Do you remember what did they do to her when the agencies took her? Take that as an example.

** I am also offput by all of the lolicon- they better not hook up Hei and Suou. On the other hand, I did get the vibe that with the crossdresser father, they might have been going for the gay = mutant idea of the Franchise/{{X-Men}}. On the other hand, it's kind of surprising, but besides TheSyndicate, average people so far don't really seem to hate Contractors, which is weird given how mutants are treated in most series, and Contractors are a lot more dangerous. Like that mother in the latest episode telling her child not to look at Hei fighting Genma, because if Contractors see you, they will "take your bellybutton". Sure, that's making them bogeymen, but she seemed pretty calm.

** Probably a case of WritersCannotDoMath and he's meant to be older than sixteen. This troper got the impression that he was in his early 20's, which is a bit more loli.

[[folder:Age Gap between Norio and Suou]]

* Suou is technically 2 years old (because that's when Shion created her). However, physically, she is a clone of Shion. When Mao and Shion's mother first meet, we see that Shion's mother is fairly late into the pregnancy that led to the birth of Shion and the original Suou. The conversation between her and Mao and Mao's commentary make it clear the gate hasn't opened yet, although it's not long before it does. When Shion is born, he is already a contractor, which means the gate has opened at that point. The gate is stated to have opened approximately 13 years before the second season and the above points mean that Shion would be very close to 13 years old, and therefore so would Suou (at least physically, and nobody but her father, her brother, her mother, and Madame Oreille and her dolls know about her being a copy when Norio is relevant). Norio is stated to have been 3 years old when his mother became a contractor, which would have been either when or after the gate opened, 13 years ago, meaning Norio is no more than 16. So Norio is 16 or less and Suou is almost exactly 13. This makes me somewhat confused at Norio's friends calling him a lolicon for liking Suou. He's definitely a creepy stalker, sure, but is a 16 year old liking a 13 year old really lolicon? It's not exactly a trivial gap, but they are still both teenagers, not exactly a trait associated with lolicon. He's not exactly Sojiro Izumi.

* Why does everybody say that Genma was a pedophile? I never once got that vibe from him. The only things I can think of that even come close are the two instances in which he calls Suou a "cute little kid," and even then, he sounded more as if he were mocking her for seeming unthreatening. In fact, he's been labeled as a CompleteMonster several times on this site, but the most evil I ever saw him commit was killing Yoko and nearly killing Suou, and while those are certainly evil actions, I don't see how they transform him from "villain" to "complete monster."
