** Nakamura opens up more to Kasuga and even begins to accept his feedback. So much so that she begins to see him as an equal. This... fluctuates wildly throughout the series, however.

** Saeki is drawn to Kasuga for his honesty and eventually [[spoiler: starts dating him]]. When she [[spoiler: finds out about his pact with Nakamura]], she get so desperate that she ''[[spoiler: forcefully]]'' [[spoiler: has sex with Kasuga in order to convince him of her love]].

* ClusterFBomb: The thing about Nakamura that's odd despite her general mannerisms is the fact that she can be rather foul-mouthed while wearing the same emotionless expression on her face.

* DysfunctionJunction: Especially before the time skip. All the main characters seem to have serious psychological problems and are fairly broken inside. [[spioler: After the time skip, Kinoshita seems to have been impacted too. And one has to wonder about all the people who witnessed the kids' suicide attempt.]]

* FlowerMotifs: The Flower of Evil reappears throughout the manga, sometimes in visual contrast to [[CherryBlossoms normal]], [[EyesDoNotBelongThere eyeless]] flowers and seems to represent the perniciousness of evil impulses, or temptation in general.

* HumanityIsInsane[=/=]SexIsGood: Played with. Nakamura lives by the standard that all people are perverts. Simple and flat. She believes that people should learn to just accept their animalistic tendencies, making the world a more interesting place. However, she doesn't outright condone insanity or sexual relations. More often, she wants the highs and emotions that come with these actions.

* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Kasuga views Saeki as this, and at first it seems she plays the trope straight. [[spoiler:Later on, this becomes Subverted. ''Hard''.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: One of the main motivations for all three main characters. Whether they made the right choice or even actually had to do those things in the first place is... debatable. At best.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: [[spoiler:Believe it or not, this is entirely the reason why Nakamura blackmailed Kasuga into their pact, feeling that they were kindred deviants.]]

* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: Nakamura switches wildly between manhandling/hitting Kasuga and sexually harassing him. [[spoiler: And turns out she likes him.]]



* TheJinx: Kasuga. He certainly is on the receiving end of some bad luck (see DiggingHimselfDeeper and NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished), but he also drags Saeki and maybe the whole town with him as he JumpsOffTheSlipperySlope. More directly, his family [[spoiler: blames him for his grandfather's death, seeing it as a result of his lack of atonement for his evil deeds.]]

* SexIsEvil: Played with, although it's more like Evil is Sex. Nakamura's idea of idea of perversion has as much to do with her hostility and lack of empathy with everyone as with sex; she sees Kasuga's (sexual) interest in Saeki's gym clothes as evidence that he too is depraved like her.

* SmallTownBoredom: One of the underlying problems the main characters face. Kasuga's monologues state how the isolated nature of the town disturbs him, making it hard to hide away from people, and the old closed-up buildings make it look like a GhostTown. Nakamura herself is bored and frustrated with the town as well, with how she doesn't fit in due to her isolated nature. This leads to them seeking "the other side" as an escape from the monotony.
