** New Testament Volume 4 has the chapters titled "Main" (6), "Sub" (24), and "Period" (3) instead of "Chapter": the "Sub" chapters are more or less normal chapters with a different PointOfView each, the "Main" chapters usually end with a death and a shot of the remaining characters, and finally the "Period" chapters involve Touma to some degree, until he appears at the end of the volume and the chapter titles comes ''somewhat'' back to normal (the second-to-last chapter is numbered "n" while the epilogue is titled "Profound Destruction" instead of the usual "Epilogue". Considering the AnyoneCanDie nature of this book, the author used this format so that the readers wouldn't be able to predict what will happen next or know who would die.

* StalkingIsLove: Played all over the place. Mikoto is being stalked by the grandson of her school's dean. While he's pretty attractive, she still finds him creepy and she can't just zap him because of his status, so she enlists Toma to pretend to be her boyfriend long enough to throw him off. This doesn't work—because he's actually a spy sent to keep an eye on Toma's growing list of powerful True Companions, specifically Mikoto. Except that he really is in love with her, and volunteered for the mission so that they wouldn't send someone else, who wouldn't have a problem killing her if she got difficult (and "difficult" is a pretty good way of summarizing Mikoto).
