* HoYay: Ooh boy, where do we start? [[{{Shotacon}} Soubi and Ritsuka]], Soubi and Kio, [[MindRape Soubi and Seimei]], Soubi and Ritsu-sensei (one-sided, admittedly).
** [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Soubi seems to be a bit of a magnet for this, no?]]
** And then let's not forget the male Zeroes who, despite being kids, [[LikeAnOldMarriedCouple act like an old married couple]].
** Nisei towards Seimei. In a ''biiiig'' way.
** Yayoi has a brief moment of this upon meeting Ritsuka for the first time:
--->'''Yayoi:''' Aoyagi Ritsuka. He's pretty. Like a girl.

** The ear piercing scene in episode 3 of the anime was...interesting, to say the least.

** Soubi too, especially once his backstory comes into play.

!!!''Loveless'', the album:

* EarWorm: "To Here Knows When", "Soon"
* MagnumOpus: For both Music/MyBloodyValentine and ShoeGazing as a whole.
* ToughActToFollow: Notorious for being this to the entire genre. Averted with ''m b v'', which is widely considered as a worthy followup to ''Loveless'', even after [[SequelGap 22 years of waiting]].

Added DiffLines:

** Considering the fact that Kouya had fake cat ears she put on around her schoolmates, there probably is a market for it.

* NeedsMoreLove: It's ignored by most [[YaoiFangirl yaoi fangirls]] for its complex story and lack of gratuitous FanService, while it's sometimes snubbed by more serious shonen-ai fans, [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch who make assumptions]] based on the {{Shotacon}} and cat ears. To make matters worse, the fanfiction makes the story seem based entirely on {{Shotacon}} and S&M.
** There are [[YaoiFangirl some of us]] out there who gave it a shot and were quite frankly disturbed by certain elements of the story despite enjoying the admittedly tasty, if muted, fanservice and delightfully complex romances.
*** There are also fans who were just as disturbed that aren't in it for the romance, or the romance alone. There are fans who actually enjoy the story and understand that it goes far beyond being a typical romance story. There's a ''reason'' one of its genres is Psychological. The plot of this series wasn't meant for just romance, so people looking for a FanService series are not going to find they're looking for here. That was not its intention. Romance is included, but is not the only focus. The romance also has a powerful habit of tying into the psychology part of it.

** The cute art style and fairly non-explicit relationship between Ritsuka and Soubi leads to a lot of younger fans mistaking it for something sweet and fluffy -- often completely missing the point that the series, and in particular Ritsuka and Soubi's relationship, is supposed to be quite disturbing. (After all, Ritsuka is ''twelve years old'', and Soubi is pushing him into a romantic relationship because [[spoiler: Ritsuka's own ''brother'' told him to]].)



* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: The cute art style and fairly non-explicit relationship between Ritsuka and Soubi leads a lot of young teenage girls to read it - often completely missing the point that the series, and in particular Ritsuka and Soubi's relationship, is supposed to be quite disturbing. (After all, Ritsuka is ''twelve years old'', and Soubi is pushing him into a romantic relationship because [[spoiler: Ritsuka's own ''brother'' told him to]].)
** Can tie into MoralDissonance once young fangirls start thinking that a child's relationship with a masochistic pedophile is just adorable.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: The cute art style and fairly non-explicit relationship between Ritsuka and WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: At one point Soubi leads gets a lot of young teenage girls ''nail'' through his hand and is forced to read pull it - often completely missing out. That and the point fact that the series, and in particular Ritsuka and Soubi's relationship, is supposed to be quite disturbing. (After all, Ritsuka is ''twelve years old'', and Soubi is pushing he's accused of being a masochist several times makes one wonder if this was intentional. No CrucifiedHeroShot on him into a romantic relationship because [[spoiler: Ritsuka's own ''brother'' told him to]].)
yet, though.
