* AdaptationalHeroism: Sorta. Twenty Faces is certainly not heroic by any measure, but is at least given a somewhat understandable back story. [[spoiler: Turns out he was a scientist for Imperial Japan who vowed to destroy the super-weapons he helped create after WorldWar2 devastated the planet]].

* WhamEpisode: Episode Six, Jesus Christ. Whether or not the show [[JumpTheShark jumped the shark]] at this stage remains to be seen.
** It didn't, but it did take a major change in direction.

The focus of the story is Chizuko "Chiko" Mikamo, a young girl who desires to get away from her home [[spoiler:because her uncle and aunt have been slowly poisoning her]] and leaps at the chance when international GentlemanThief "Twenty Faces" comes to "steal" her. Abandoning her old life, she learns the way of proper cat burglary from Twenty and his merry band of men, and eventually must come to terms with Twenty's legacy and her position as The Daughter Of Twenty Faces. This manga is a derivative of classic detective fiction. Twenty Faces first appeared in the late 1920's as the WorthyOpponent of Endogawa Rampo's detective Akechi Kogorō, who is also featured later on.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Chiko is played by the famous Creator/AyaHirano, although Chiko sounds nothing like [[SuzumiyaHaruhi Haruhi Suzumiya.]]
** Shunka, who does not appear until fairly later in the series but is a major character, is voiced by Creator/RinaSato, who is Negi in all adaptations of {{Negima}}.
** Tome, voiced by Creator/SatomiArai.



* NoExportForYou: Which actually confuses a fair number of people, as the low fanservice quotient and [[ActionGirl competent-heroine-with-no-strings-attached]] lead should make the show a good fit for American and European television, particularly action blocks like {{Toonami}}.
