* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler: In an interesting sense, in the last story one of the characters surmises that the reason the mermaids will sometimes go on the attack is that they can feel if someone who enacted the spell truly does love a boy and doesn't need the flesh of a mermaid to get him to return their feelings. As such they become jealous of that person and try to kill them because they know they're stuck by the spell's curse and can never have that kind of affection because they tried to take the easy way out through the spell rather then simply come out with their feelings. This might be why they're constantly smiling for potential victims, [[StepfordSmile they're not really genuine]] as if they're ''hoping'' for their pursers to fail. In fact, a sign they're about to turn feral is when they ''don't'' do this, meaning they sense a girl's true affection for a boy.]]

* LoopholeAbuse: [[spoiler: An odd case in this one, Yui and Reiko eat mermaid flesh but the spell doesn't work for them because it was the wrong letter (due to Saori changing it). Though since they did manage to eat the flesh anyway, it keeps them from becoming mermaids.]]



* KarmaHoudini: Somewhat. [[spoiler: Nanae is given a GlasgowGrin for her troubles and quickly limps off afterwards, her beauty she took so much pride in now soiled. But she's still plotting to get an "R" mermaid and slips the notebook into a bookstore knowing some girl will find it and read from the book. Though considering how often the book passed hands to different schools, it's implied she either failed or just gave up (because, really, she can't keep track of every girl that gets their hands on it and even then she's has to actively hunt for said mermaid and we've seen how fast they are). Regardless she's responsible for a number of girls of other schools falling victim to the mermaid spell.]]

* InvisibleToNormals: This story reveals that mermaids will only appear and interact with those who chanted the spell. Otherwise they're unseen by anyone who hasn't.

Within a school, a old worn out notebook is passed around explaining that a certain spell that, when chanted at a certain time at night, will cause human looking mermaids to appear before the user. These mermaids wear Japanese style swimsuits with a letter on their chest. If the mermaid with the first letter of the boy you love is caught and killed, all you have to do is eat the flesh of it while thinking of your true love and, presto, instant boyfriend. However the mermaids won't be caught so easily since they can swim through the walls and floors like water and are extremely fast to boot.
