Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: In the ''Everblue'' drama CD, three out of four tracks are plainly depressing, but the remaining track is this, since it features the main cast as friends hanging out in a karaoke.

Sounds like your typical school boys love setting right? Except that this being a [[{{Nitroplus}} Nitro+]] production means that the story is also infused with horror of the most potent kind. Filled to the brim with PrimalFear and BodyHorror, all heighted with a [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome brilliantly creepy soundtrack]], this is definitely not a game for the faint-hearted.

* MoodSwinger: Zenya, and not in the good or humorous way. His mood can change from casual and bubbly to downright menacing and violent in the blink of an eye; you can even already hear it in the change in his tone alone.

* [[DarkIsNotEvil Gross Is Not Evil]]: Implied with the parasites. They're disgusting, sure, but all they're really trying to do is breed like any animal is. [[spoiler: Onnushi-sama's flesh should have made Zenya an Osu if he willed it, but Zenya was a baby and incompatible with the parasites, and his father knew it; Kunihito's prayers go unanswered because he's blaming the object of his worship for something he did himself.]]

* [[spoiler: HomosexualReproduction: The parasites only choose human males for reproduction, as a woman's womb is an obstacle for them since intestines are their habitat. The baby is [[BodyHorror "born"]] from [[MisterSeahorse both partners]]. [[MindScrew Don't ask]].]]
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Youji feels this way towards [[spoiler: Tetsuo]]

* RedEyesTakeWarning: Pure Breeds, the parasites' equivalent to a hive queen, have red eyes.

[[spoiler: Onnushi-sama was apparently one of them, and the danger they signify is the fact that they can control their pheromones at will to affect even normal humans, and their flesh can seed in humans without exploding them into gobbets of meat if they will it.

* ShownTheirWork: At one point, the parasites are referred to as "myrmecoleon", ant-lions, referencing a mistranslated Hebrew word in the Septuagint version of the Old Testament. It's also something of an appropriately bizarre animal motif, as the mythical ant-lion is a creature that is half-lion and half-ant, doomed to starve to death because its opposing halves can't eat the same food.
