* AdaptationDistillation: The novel is told through episodic stories not always directly related to one another–unsurprising, since it was originally serialized and then published in two separate collections before being combined in one book. The manga streamlines the narrative by removing plots without Kamiyama narrating and combining similar storylines, focusing more on Kamiyama and Morino's ambiguous relationship and giving greater weight to Morino as a character.

* YouBastard: Morino muses about how she and Kamiyama share a "ceaseless craving for darkness". Makes you think about why you're reading this manga in the first place. May overlap with FridgeHorror for some.

When Morino nonchalantly asks him to teach her how he so can so easily fake a smile, Kamiyama realizes that she can see right through him. Instantly the two become drawn to each other, sharing their obsession with the darkness that lurks just beneath the surface of society. Together they uncover some of the most cruel and gruesome acts committed by mankind, all the while facing ever present danger... not just from the killers they investigate, but also from the part of Kamiyama that still hungers for Morino's death.
