** The scene in Episode 7, "I Must Do It", where Saya has removed her shoes because they've filled up with rain. Either it's a nice touch as it makes her look more hardcore doing her sword practice barefooted, or it's just silly that her tennis shoes have turned into a pair of birdbaths and she hasn't emptied them.

** A lot of the rather loopy moments Carl has make it hard to take him seriously when we should, since he's a psychopath.

** Speaking of shoes, Diva making a huge fuss about lacing up brand new sneakers that are perfect to go into action with as opposed to dress heels, only to strip off her dress and leave ''only'' the sneakers on just as she's about to [[spoiler:rape Riku to death]].

** The OP theme songs, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyV80VvvI_8 "Aozara no Namida"]] by Hitomi Takahashi, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c26xhwZ8Vuw "Season's Call"]] by HYDE and most definitely, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8nsqbHNakQ "Colors of the Heart"]] by UVERworld are definitely one of the best songs.
** ''Kataritsugu Koto'' (''The Things I Pass Down''), the ending theme for the first series.
* CryForTheDevil: [[spoiler: Diva. As Nathan puts it when she dies: "Poor girl...she just wanted to have a family..."]] Also Karl, possibly.

* BrokenBase: [[spoiler: Diva's rape of Riku]]. Some fans disliked this; others said that this was when the show started really picking up.

to:

* ArcFatigue: The Schiff and how relevant they are to the main plot. Some fans felt that their presence as artificial Chiropterans took away what made Saya [[spoiler:and Diva]] and the chevaliers special, as well as digressing the spotlight from them. The manga adaptation [[AdaptedOut adapts them out]].

And then [[spoiler:Diva returns to rape and kill him.]] Even after that [[spoiler:Diva is still carrying his Chiropteran children and wearing his face just to taunt Saya]].

* DracoInLeatherPants: Diva, holy shit Diva. Both fanboys ''and'' fangirls give her far more sympathy than she deserves, given that while she might have a good FreudianExcuse, she is also incredibly ruthless and often needlesly cruel-- [[spoiler:not to mention a rapist/murderess who never shows any regret for raping and killing Riku.]] This is sometimes paired with them [[RonTheDeathEater villainizing and bashing Saya]], and more frequently with trying to excuse away Diva's evil deeds due to her DarkAndTroubledPast.
