* CrapsaccharineWorld: This is how the SAR itself is described. It's a bright, shining city full of prosperity and fun things to do... while [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs gangsters]] train children and teenagers [[spoiler: like Hakuron, Diron and several others as well]] as assassins in a shadow war filled with rape, murder, and suicide.



* HongKong: The plot is truly kickstarted when Hakuron abducts Kurumi and takes her to his home there...

* AttemptedRape: More than once, but special note goes to [[spoiler: the TooDumbToLive triad guys who grab the escaping and BSOD'ing Kurumi and attempt to make her a SexSlave]] and [[spoiler: Reilan having her schoolmates try to rape Kurumi, out of jealousy and as a part of her ThanatosGambit]]. Hakuron saves her both times, of course. Which doesn't stop him from sexing her up in non-con/dub-con ways, tho.
** [[spoiler: Diron]] even gets in on the action, until [[spoiler: Fuuron]] stops him by holding a sword to his throat. He tries it again later, but is thwarted by [[spoiler: Hakuron]].
** [[spoiler: Eason Yang]] also tries this after [[spoiler: he unsuccessfully tried to use Kurumi as a bargaining chip. As usual, Hakuron saves her.]]



* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: Hakuron and Kurumi both buy into this argument, noting that [[spoiler: Kurumi's body reacted during his multiple rapes of her, and she starts having lustful feelings towards him in spite of herself. Hakuron argues that this means she has no choice but to stay with him, and she comes to agree with him]].



* RapeAsDrama: [[spoiler: Reilan gets gang-raped by Eason Yang's goons and forced into prostitution, which helps send her further into {{Yandere}} territory.]]
* RapeLeadsToInsanity: [[spoiler: As said above, Reilan was driven to bitterness and insanity after she gets gangraped by the mooks of her fiancé Hakuron's rival and forced into prostitution, and she gets so broken that she invokes the trope via setting her love rival Kurumi to be gang-raped in front of Hakuron himself to specifically mess with the girl's mind. Even when Kurumi is rescued, Reilan uses this as a part of a Thanatos Gambit as well, so she gets broken anyway but by the end, she gets somewhat better. And also, Kurumi is raped by Hakuron himself in front of her newfound friend Kaafai... and he is the one who goes crazy instead, which leads him to ultimately shoot Hakuron dead.]]



* SexualHarassmentAndRapeTropes: Oh boy...
** AttemptedRape: More than once, but special note goes to [[spoiler: the TooDumbToLive triad guys who grab the escaping and BSOD'ing Kurumi and attempt to make her a SexSlave]] and [[spoiler: Reilan having her schoolmates try to rape Kurumi, out of jealousy and as a part of her ThanatosGambit]].

** SexSlave: [[spoiler: Mid-series, Kurumi basically ends up as this since not only does Hakuron keep her trapped at his house and rape her whenever he feels like, he also makes her do the housecleaning and cooking.]]
