** Another example comes much later, which also is the first indication that [[spoiler:Akachi]] is actually a switched person, too.
--> '''[[spoiler:Akachi:]]''' (to Kadowaki) Hmpf. Why should I follow an immature brat like you?

The first Arata we meet lives with his grandmother Makari and childhood friend Kotoha in a magical world where [[OurGodsAreGreater gods inhibit swords named Hayagami]] and let their [[ChosenOne chosen wielders]], named Shou, use their special powers. Arata is the next in line to become the [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princess]], the world's ruler. Too bad [[UnsettlingGenderReveal he was born a man]], so he has to [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdress]] and hope nobody finds out, in which case he will be executed. However, during the crowning ceremony he is not only exposed, but the current princess Kikuri is assassinated and Arata gets the blame. As he tries to escape into a mystical forest, he is swallowed by trees.

-->'''Harunawa:''' How strange you are, Arata. Sure, she's a Hime like you, but she's just another life who worth so little... why protect her?


Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: Oh so, so, much. The majority of Hinohara and Kadowaki's conflict can be sum up with this.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: The majority of the Six Shou seems to lack any sense of this, but Isora and Harunawa fit into this bull very well.


Added DiffLines:

* LaserGuidedKarma: Big time for Ameeno. [[spoiler: He betrayed Ikisu by destroying his country, beat him up a ruthless manner, and tore off Kadowaki's arm.]] Later, [[spoiler: his comrade Shimu betrayed Ameeno by bombing his country in a similar fashion and defeated him vice versa destroying not only both of his arms, but his legs too.]]

** [[spoiler: Poor, ''poor'' Nasake... He suffered a whole a lot of abuses from his father, Ameeno, both physically and emotionally. Specially when Ameeno punched Nasake and called him an annoyance and later on, he ''literally took out Nasake's eyes from his eye sockets with his tongue, threw him aside, and ate them'' when he is at his crisis moment in his demon form.]]

* MeaningfulName: Hinohara practically spells this out when he first introduces himself to Suguru - His name, Arata, uses the kanji for "revolution." [[spoiler: Guess what he's destined to do with his Hayagami later on into the story.]]

* BodyguardCrush: While more of personal medics than bodyguards, all the significant Unemezoku in the story (Kotoha, Rami, and Miyabi) seem to be devoted to their masters (Arata, Mikusa, and Kadowaki, respectively) more than the call of duty requires.

** Kikutsune is a tyranical shou who is perfectly fine with stealing the hearing of his subjects and humiliating them using his powers. However, he was originally a very talented musician who lost his hearing in an attack orchestrated by a rival musician. He got his revenge, but wound up being punished for murder as a result. Also, he grew up in [[spoiler: Pompey, and only managed to escape the volcano by getting pulled into the forrest]], so a trial consisted of getting stoned and attacked by a lion.
** Kagura was an amnesiac [[spoiler: who could never age and was thus trapped in the body of a child. Before he lost his memories, he was a peasant boy who lost most of his family in an attack by bandits. He fought them off with his newfound power, but he couldn't remember his only remaining family member--his brother.]]
