* GeniusBonus: The ShoutOutThemeNaming for the characters are taken Literature/TheTaleOfGenji, or from people involved in its production. With Minamoto is named after Hikaru Genji himself. That confirms that this manga is really a HaremGenre like the original literature, and everybody wants Minamoto, even the guys, just like everybody wants Hikaru Genji in the original literature.

The act of disabling the girls' power limiters also causes them to transform to their default BABEL uniforms, despite this not being necessary for them to use their powers.



* VitriolicBestBuds: Kaoru and Miu.
** Kyosuke and Momotaro.
* VerbalTic fused with VodkaDrunkenski: A military base commander in a place of Russia North of the Arctic Circle (which is why Minamoto and Aoi see the white night) has the VerbalTic of ending his sentences with "~ de vodka", "~ de caviar" or "~ de matryoshka". [[SarcasmMode Very subtle use of stereotypes]].

** WhatMeasureIsANonSuper: The flip side of the above. As far as he's concerned, Kyosuke and other espers ''aren't'' part of humanity, and humans need to be destroyed for the protection of the esper race. Minamoto and BABEL try to TakeAThirdOption and work for harmony between humans and espers, while The Children don't even make us-and-them distinctions in the first place.

* WifeHusbandry: Attempted, but only partially successful: Naomi's supervisor Tanizaki engaging in this is the reason she changed from a sweet and quiet girl to a MoodSwinger once The Children helped her realize it.

* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Although ten, Shiho has a pretty good idea of how dark the world can be thanks to her powers. Minamoto finds it a little disconcerting that even solving murder cases by ''psychically extracting clues from the murder weapons'' doesn't really upset her.

* TheWorfEffect: In his initial appearance, Grisham [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast 'ESPer Killer']] is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} BadassGrandpa in a BadassLongcoat who manhandles and manipulates BABEL and Comerica. His second appearance? Jobbing to some punk who decides Grisham is NotWorthKilling.
** Admittedly, said 'Punk' is capable of going head-to-head with Major Kyosuke, and it eventually took a LimitBreak from Kaoru to stop him. He was also under MoreThanMindControl at the time, making him [[WorfHadTheFlu immune to Grisham's telepathic attacks]].
* WorldWarTwo: An important part of the series' backstory.

Added DiffLines:

* YuriGenre: Episode 36 takes a potshot at the genre. It may qualify as an IndecisiveParody; while Kaoru and Sakaki's lustful LampshadeHanging is clearly a gag, the [[FlowerMotifs vase of white lilies]], focus on [[IntertwinedFingers the girls' hands]], [[LesYay subtext]], and [[spoiler: BaitAndSwitchLesbians]] are all hallmarks of the genre played completely [[IncrediblyLamePun straight]].
