* UnfortunateImplications: The use of rape in the story comes off as GratuitousRape and an insensitive treatment of the subject for many.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Most of it.



* UnfortunateImplications: The treatment of rape in this series is often seen as '''extremely''' offensive. A glaring example would be [[spoiler: Shuichi being brutally gangraped by Yuki's bitter rival Taki Aizawa and his group, who do this ''specifically'' as revenge against Yuki... and he shows next to none emotional repercussions afterwards. (It's not even asking for a total sobbing/suicidal breakdown from Shuichi's part, but ''at least'' for him to acknowledge that it was a bad experience -- instead of just smiling and being apparently "fine".)]]
** To be fair, though, it's still treated as a bad thing.
** It should be noted that [[spoiler: the rape is treated as "white knight" moment for Yuki so he can beat up Taki, and not the emotionally devastating moment it should be for Shuichi.]] Not to mention that [[spoiler: although Shuichi is said to be in pain, he's never shown going to a hospital and is implied to be fine a day or so later (and left alone for hours)...after being gang raped by two or three men.]]
** And [[spoiler: having a person raped as revenge against another? Specially when the rape victim is the partner who is seen as the "consenting" and "passive" one, and often [[{{Wimpification}} wimpified]] to resemble a stereotypical and unrealistic view of [[WomenAreDelicate women as frail little things]]?]] Kinda... crass.
** Also just the general romance can come across as disturbing or emotionally abusive to both Yuki and Shuichi at times, with Shuichi following Yuki around (borderline stalking him) at first. More so, throughout the manga and anime Yuki is abrasive and cold to Shuichi [[spoiler: and has shades of sexual assault in the manga, such as when Shuichi has a cold early on and only the direct word "Stop" causes Yuki to get his hand out of the former's pants (literally) despite obvious protests from Shuichi and the dialogue following their first sexual encounter]], to the point that one could begin questioning what they see in each other at all.
