* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The setting is architecturally a mix of Japanese, Italian, French, and German, and the town is possibly based on the town of Manarola, but the characters have Japanese names and Japanese educational and social customs. Ruins around the town include Romanticism-era German castles, Roman-like temples, and old Gothic medieval churches. To make matters worse, Dark can occasionally be heard to chant GratuitousGerman when sealing artwork in the anime. It doesn't help that the name of the town itself is "Azumano", which can literally translate to "Eastern Japan." One of the audio commentaries on the English [=DVDs=] has VicMignogna and Kevin Corn expressing confusion on where the series is actually set.

* [[CuteClumsyGirl Cute Clumsy Guy]]: Daisuke. Especially odd, seeing as he's had his reflexes conditioned since birth to be a successful thief. The end result is that he often trips, immediately performs an complex, acrobatic save...and then flubs the landing.
** Subverted in that this is deliberate. Daisuke has to pretend to be clumsy in order to avoid giving away the fact that he is training to be a thief.

If you're a fan of fantasy shojo (or {{bishounen}}!), both are worth a look--if only to spot the many tropes the series makes use of.

** Even the time period is ambiguous. While they appear to have some modern technologies (touch-activated security systems, trip beams, computers, cameras, and security passcodes), much of the clothing and lifestyle is extremely dated. Flashbacks from only thirty or forty years ago look as though they were from the Victorian era at the very latest (with GorgeousPeriodDress, lavish garden parties, large German castles, small and poorly insulated rooms and windows, candle lighting, carriages, the works). While the main characters wear modern clothing, background adult characters often dress in old-fashioned styles (Inspector Saehara even wears a Victorian tiered cloak while on the job).

Even the flashbacks aren't consistent with time and place themselves; some have people wearing Japanese kimonos and robes, others wearing European ball gowns and tuxedos from varying eras--usually in the same scene and shot.
