Is in no way related towards [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia]] [[NamesTheSame Loveless]] (this is not an anime of her descendants), nor the {{Shounen}} anime ''{{NEEDLESS}}'', nor the play set in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. [[IncrediblyLamePun And no, it's not devoid of LOVE]]. Also has nothing to do with the iconic ''Loveless'', of Music/MyBloodyValentine fame. It also has nothing to do with the ''Series/TheWildWildWest'' villain or a certain [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patty_Loveless country music singer]].

* ScheduleSlip: Volume 9 came out in Nov 2009 and volume 10 came out in May 2011. ([[NoExportForYou English releases from Tokyopop stopped at 8]], long before Tokyopop's manga publishing actually folded.)

The Messiah has been disambiguated between Messianic Archetype and All Loving Hero. Bad examples and ZCE are being removed; if you disagree, please readd with sufficient context.
* TheMessiah: Ritsuka, as a somewhat smaller scale version. He's mostly impacted one person, Yuiko (who even states that she "feels so much more alive" when she's with Ritsuka), but has also had a smaller effect on Hitomi-sensei, and seems to finally be starting to have an effect on Soubi as well. Not to mention the (adult) therapist who's in love with him...

Work titles go in italics and in the proper namespace, NEVER spoiler out the trope name on a work page, Moments of Awesome etc. do not get links on main pages for works, and a lot of these examples are incorrectly indented. There are also a wealth of Zero Context Examples.

* BreakTheCutie: Finally happens to Youji when he and Natsuo [[spoiler:confront Seimei]]. He breaks down and starts to cry, but Natsuo helps him out of it. ** This also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming between the zero boys and a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for [[TookALevelInBadass Natsuo]]. *** Also happens to Ritsuka in his battle with Bloodless, and Soubi almost ''directly'' after Youji's incident.

** Soubi introduced himself to Ritsuka as Seimei's friend. [[spoiler:However, it turns out that he despises Seimei more than anyone; even his former teacher, Ritsu.]] Also, Soubi was introduced as "he has no ears, so he's an adult". [[spoiler:[[{{backstory}} Though, if he hadn't lost his ears to Ritsu]], he'd probably still have them.]]

** It's made worse when we learn that he did it to [[spoiler: write 'RITSUKA I'M BACK' on the wall. With BLOOD]]. *** [[CouldntFindAPen Apparently leaving him a note in ink would have just been rude.]] ** Also, in recent chapters it was explained that Natsuo pulled out his own eye carelessly. Still didn't feel pain from it, though.

Seimei believes that Ritsuka belongs to him and will [[{{Yandere}}get rid of anyone getting in his way]].]] ** Especially ironic because [[spoiler: Seimei plays an actual Paladin character on the MMORPG "Wisdom Resurrection"]].

* LoveMartyr: Ritsuka is a male version of this towards [[spoiler: Seimei, though it's not of the BrotherSisterIncest variety. Although he is constantly being told of Seimei's sins, he is steadfast in his decision to be angry at him, but always forgive him. ALWAYS]]. ** Starts to border on TooDumbToLive. * LovingAShadow: Kind of. [[spoiler: Ritsuka learns that Seimei is not at all the person that Ritsuka thought he was. While Seimei was caring (albeit a little distant) towards Ritsuka, he was, in reality, a cold, obsessive, and very violent man who was not above manipulating or murdering people who got in his way. When Ritsuka learns that even HE was manipulated by Seimei because of his twisted concept of [[BrotherSisterIncest 'love']], Ritsuka is angry, but he forgives him. [[LoveMartyr He still loves Seimei like he did when he was a child]].]] ** Possibly a case of [[spoiler: StockholmSyndrome]]. *** Either that or there's some type of laser-guided mind-ray telling him to ignore the obvious.

* SchoolgirlLesbians: Kouya and Yamato, adversaries in the third and fourth volumes of the manga. Note that this was actually made ''more'' explicit in the anime, which in their first scene showed them kiss on the train when the manga just had them hold hands, as if it was just to make ''sure'' we weren't mistaken as to what was going on. ** They are also shown with and without ears, both in the anime and manga.

* [[{{SexAsRite-of-passage}} Sex As Rite-Of-Passage]]: Subverted, turned inside out, and arguably played straight. Particularly twisted when it comes to Soubi [[spoiler:who lost his cat ears as a result of sexual abuse at the hands of his teacher Ritsu]].

* ThereAreNoTherapists: Subverted in that Ritsuka ''does'' see a psychologist weekly, yet Misaki's abuse continues (and it's implied the older female psychologist has a crush on him -- she takes him out on a "date" in an early volume). ** Justified, as it's his mother that sends him to therapy [[spoiler: to try to get the "other" Ritsuka back.]]

* {{Tsundere}}: Ritsuka is a little bit Tsundere toward Soubi, which is uncommon to his gender. Also, Kouya is arguably mildly tsundere. Nagisa is ''definitely'' tsundere for Ritsu-sensei.
