* ClingyJealousGirl: Mana's actions around Yuuta when he is with another girl seem to come off as jealousy, which she herself appears to be unaware of. Yuuta even asks if she is jealous, to which she is unfamiliar with the concept and thinks he was asking if she wanted Jello.

* HeroWithBadPublicity: [[spoiler: Misa. At first it looks like she's an AbusiveParent trying to kill her son Masato. Then it's revealed Masato is the one who gave her the Mermaid's Flesh and has been doing the same thing to countless women for 800 years. She's actually been trying to find out where he's been keeping his supply of Mermaid's Flesh to stop him from ruining the lives of other women.]]

* LoveDodecahedron: Averted, unlike most of Takahashi's other works. Yuuta had been married once when he first ate the mermaid's flesh, and over the span of his lifetime he's met other women who've fallen for him, yet none of this has had an affect on his standing with Mana since they were all before he met her. And even then, it's not clear as to whether or not Mana's feelings are platonic or not.

It is said that eating the flesh of a mermaid can give one eternal life. Yuuta, a poor fisherman, didn't really believe the tales, but when the rest of the village tried some, he ate some as well. Less well-known is that mermaid's flesh is fatal to most, and almost all those who don't die are transformed into hideous mindless immortal beasts called Lost Souls. Within days, Yuuta was the sole survivor of his village. 500 years later, he is physically no older, but has grown weary of his lonely existence, and seeks the one creature that might be able to restore his mortality -- a mermaid.

* SelfMutilationDemonstrationSelfMutilationDemonstration: Yuta does this several times, to the point that he is ''told'' to do it to prove his immortality or he [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it when Mana hands him a pair of scissors to give another demonstration.

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Played ''very'' straight. [[spoiler: Subverted, possibly, by the ''Mermaid Does Not Smile'' story; Yuuta discovers the cure really was just a myth, and is then very nearly KilledOffForReal in a rather gruesome fashion--the final scene seems to imply that after that harrowing experience, death no longer holds the same appeal for him]].
