* GenreSavvy: Both Asuka jr. and his father know that Saint Tail steals only to help people. With time, Saint Tail's warning she'd steal something became enough to make Asuka sr. investigate how it was obtained and if it was the genuine article, just in time to find out why he has to arrest the 'theft victim' immediately after the caper.

* CatholicSchoolGirlsRule: In spite of all characters going to a catholic school, the one hit by this is ''Seira'', whose good looks have been remarked by complete strangers and has a love interest who ''knows'' she's a nun-in-training. Too bad that Seira is not only not interested (to the point she's oblivious about a rather romantic romantic tradition of the school that even the ''transfer student'' knows), but completely ObliviousToLove...

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The setting is vaguely Japanese, with places like New Tokyo Airport being mentioned, and all the characters have Japanese names. However, the architecture that makes up the different settings varies between Japanese, Italian, French, German, and British (with Japanese architecture actually being the least common of the styles, and French being the most common), and famous locations from other countries often show up in the scenery. It doesn't help that the only other countries they mention are all fictional (besides America), implying this story occurs in a different world than our own--likely one in which Japan had far earlier and more extensive contact with Western culture.

** It's not actually clear that the story takes place in Japan, or at least, ''our'' world's Japan. Many shots around the town show locations borrowed from other places in the world and architecture styles from Japan, France, England, and Germany. A notable example is the climax setting, referred to as simply "the Monastery" in the series, which is clearly Mont Saint-Michel, an famous island monastery in France. While Tokyo is mentioned as close by, the fact that other locations near by are from Europe makes it clear that their geography isn't like our world, so who's to say their religious locales are either?
