* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In his first appearance, M-24 kills a guy for very little reason, with M-21's permission. Later, M-24 is usually shown as a GentleGiant, and both he and M-21 clearly try to avoid unnecessary killing; the shift seems to happen around the hospital incident, when it's mentioned that they ordered the infected to avoid killing anyone, and after that they're suddenly uncomfortable with murder.

** The early chapters of the first StoryArc have a vastly different feel compared to later on due to the focus being on the Ye Ran High School students, which are characters that become almost [[OutOfFocus non-existent]] as the series goes on.

The series is a LongRunner with almost 400 chapters, various short comics, a sidestory, a WebNovel & two [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]], one a loose adaptation of some of Season 1 and the other a canon prequel, so beware of [[LateArrivalSpoiler Late Arrival Spoilers]]. What kind of people Raizel and Frankenstein are and [[OntologicalMystery how they got here]] are [[DrivingQuestion Driving Questions]], and some of the reveals are gamechanging enough that it's hard to discuss the characters without spoilers from chapters 300+. The Creator/ProductionIG [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]]'s intro text contained information not revealed until the climax of Season 3.
