* Shotacon: Kind of. In the first arc of both the anime and manga, it's revealed that [[spoiler:Muraki raped Hisoka when the latter was only thirteen years old.]]
** Not really "kind of."

* BoysLove: [[PlayingWithATrope Yes and no.]] Tsuzuki {{lampshade}}s this in the first volume, joking that he would give Hisoka a goodnight kiss, but this isn't a Boys Love manga. Later on, in a plot arc that actually deals with homosexual relationships, Tsuzuki refers to homosexuality as 'icky' ([[spoiler:But to be fair, he was masquerading as a priest at the time.]]), and he seems genuinely {{squicked}} by some lesbians in a different plot arc. Everything is officially kept on the HeterosexualLifePartners level with a bit of StupidSexyFlanders, FreudianExcuse, and gratuitous amounts of {{squick}}y MindScrew, but the [[http://i.imgur.com/ZBJYg4Y.jpg art]] [[http://i.imgur.com/ROcl7AA.jpg speaks]] [[http://i.imgur.com/Tplr6oK.jpg differently]].

* ArtEvolution: The manga and characters -- especially the male characters -- start out damn pretty, then through the first eleven volumes became drop-dead gorgeous and sexy. In the newest installments, the art changed noticeably once more, possibly because of health issues with the author. Character designs have become distinctly crude and blocky compared to earlier artwork, but remain highly detailed nonetheless.
