* AdultFear: ''Ayashi no Ceres'' might be a dark fantasy drama, but what it all comes down to is a story of [[spoiler:a loving husband who went insane after receiving some of his otherworldy wife's powers in order to [[DeclarationOfProtection protect her]], to the point of [[StayInTheKitchen restricting her behavior]], [[{{Yandere}} locking her up in their house to keep her from talking to other men]], [[DomesticAbuser beating her up]], [[MaritalRapeLicense forcing sex on her]], and even [[OffingTheOffspring killing one of their daughters who he fears could take his wife away]]. Basically, a story of domestic violence.]]

This manga was a big turning point in Watase's career, and many people consider it to be [[MagnumOpus her best work yet]].

* AllMenArePerverts: Played with. [[WordOfGod Watase said]] in one of her freetalks that all of Yuuhi's behaviour towards Aya is totally normal and that he is not a pervert. He is a teenager, after all, and at the end of the day he never crosses any moral lines, not even when [[spoiler: Aya offers herself to him out of sheer spite]] (although there are times when he gets very damn close). However, in another one, explaining Mikagi's actions and [[spoiler: the intent of a group of schoolboys who try to rape Aya]], she said that [[UnfortunateImplications "the desire of raping women was part of the male instinct to preserve the species"]]. Make out that what you will.

** In Volume 3, we have [[spoiler: Urakawa setting her physics teacher and lover Hayama and herself on fire, after he mocked her and revealed he never actually loved her. She had a FriendlessBackground to begin with and this, along with Aya's supposed betrayal, was just the final straw]].

''Ayashi no Ceres'' (''Ceres, Celestial Legend'' in English), a 1996-2000 manga by YuuWatase, draws on ancient Japanese myth and mixes it with a cynical modern perspective to produce a dark yet compelling tale of a young girl caught up in supernatural events beyond her control or understanding. It is also one of Watase's darkest, most violent works, featuring several characters with varying degrees of insanity, from Aya and Aki's mother who was brainwashed into killing her daughter, to Kagami, who's more than willing to attempt to rape Aya in order to release Ceres -- ForScience All in all, not recommended for the easily shocked.
