** In the manga, while Karin's ability to devour unhappiness proved beneficial to some characters, its potential dark side was also shown in one incident when Karin wound up draining the unhappiness of a girl who had run away from home, gotten caught up in underage prostitution, but was about to run back home when she met Karin.

If it means anything, she probably went back home after the euphoria wore off.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00JoxSLTV-E announcement trailer]] takes this up as notch, as it depicts Arthur getting caught. He's hit over the head, then held down by a Bobbie as a Doctor forces a Joy-pill in his mouth. The camera then pulls back as people walk away, and Arthur is still on his back on the ground, with a dopey smile on his face.

Fortunately, she's able to [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu defy him]].
