* CursedWithAwesome: Seriously, Takeya, what is ''wrong'' with you?



* {{Deconstruction}}: Two of them. One is of the concept of a slave race, which [[spoiler:the [=DearS=] set themselves up to be, and the reasons why are rather disturbing.]] The other, somewhat less serious one is Mitsuka-sensei, a deconstruction of the HotForTeacher trope. She is, objectively speaking, good looking, but in both the anime and manga she takes hitting on her own students so far ''even the hormone addled males'' find her to be FetishRetardant, and it's heavily implied that she might actually get somewhere if she wasn't trying so hard.

* ExtremeDoormat: Takeya is actually one of the people who gives Ren the best treatment she receives in the series, and he actually gets a bit better about it, as he honestly does not how a guy should relate to girls, thanks to having no positive role models. Further, Ren is not the [=Dears=] who is treated the worst in the series either. One of the male [=DearS=] is shown routinely, and ''horrifically'' physically, verbally, and emotionally abused by his "master" [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil who relishes calling him his slave.]]



* LostInTranslation: the final page of the English manga includes a sentence ("Now, let us depart for the front, Takeya") that is so seemingly out of place (due to the word "front") that one black market source of the manga included a full paragraph note on that sentence and what it may have actually meant in the original Japanese.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtShift: All over the place in the manga. Even the main characters often become little more than stick figures in scenes where they don't feature prominently, and sometimes even when they do feature prominently find themselves turning to stick-figures in lieu of suffering a FaceFault.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: In chapter 34, Ren gets her hair caught in the pool drain and almost drowns. This happens so frequently to people that have hair far shorter than hers that it's a well documented pool-hazard.

* BlandNameProduct: A coffeeshop by the name of "Star'''p'''ucks" is introuduced to Takeya's town in the story. Some translators have replaced this with the popular chain "Star'''b'''ucks."

* ColdBloodedTorture: Ren is subjected to this, by her fellow [=DearS=] no less, after she's captured and taken by force from Takeya's home [[BlatantLies while they tell her that he abandoned her.]] [[KarmaHoudini The torturer gets no punishment for it, aside from a gentle scolding.]]

* GameBreakingInjury: After being tortured by her fellow [=DearS=], Ren loses the ability to osmose knowledge of her surroundings, reading, writing, spoken language, cooking, etc., and has to be retaught, from kindergardner level up, step by step.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Takeya wants nothing to do with the [=DearS=], but he's still too nice of a guy to actually dismiss them.

* KarmaHoudini: None of the people who are shown on-screen abusing [=DearS=] receive any real punishment. Especially not [[spoiler: Takeya's own father]] who makes Takeya look like an absolute saint by comparison, and only saw the [=DearS=] as nothing more than test subjects for all forms of experimentation, including implied vivisection.



* ManChild: Let's face it, Takeya couldn't even ''survive'' without Neneko and Ren's help, and not just because the rent's good. One might say that the whole series displays him being dragged kicking and screaming into adulthood.

* DoubleMeaningTitle: The odd capitalization of "[=DearS=]" is explained as the way the race combined two words to make their name, but then there's the SlaveCollar around the S in the logo, the two capitalized letters being [[BDSM D & S]], and the DearS themselves being a SlaveRace.

* HaremNanny: Neneko. Unlike most [[HaremNanny Harem Nannies]], however, she is very much a potential love interest, and while she's the most mature of the cast, she's not above a bit of {{Tsundere}} behavior from time to time.

* OnlyYouCanRepopulateMyRace: Technically it starts off as "Only You Can Unlock My Race's Ability To Reproduce Through ThePowerOfLove", but nobody tells Takaya that until they're on a spaceship containing only the now-fertile female [=DearS=] and Takeya.
