*** Said letter even has Kirika addressing Mireille as "My dear Mireille." The word in the original Japanese that Kirika used for that? ''Daisuki''.

*** In addition to the LesYay between Kirika and Mireille, there are also significantly less subtle examples between Kirika and Chloe and Mireille and Lady Silvana.

* TheWoobie: Kirika practically holds up a sign that says "Please Hug Me!!" whenever she is crying. Chloe also gets in on the Woobiedom in the final arc, and even somewhat before that.

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Every single episode is basically designed to climax with a Moment for Kirika or, occasionally, Chloe or Mireille. But usually Kirika gets one too just because.

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Chloe's death]]

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the idea that Kirika is a SelfMadeOrphan and killed her biological parents and/or the couple who was posing as her parents prior to the first episode is pretty commonly accepted.

* CompleteMonster: The show [[PlayingWithATrope plays with this trope.]] Mireille, by the end of the series, thinks of [[spoiler: BigBad Altena]] as a CompleteMonster, actually [[spoiler:''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome explicitly stating this to Altena's face]]''.]] However, part of the point of the series ''precisely is'' that [[spoiler:Altena]] is ''not'' this trope. The true horror is that [[spoiler:she seems to ''genuinely love all her wards and followers'' (especially her [[TheDragon right hand]] and adoptive daughter, Chloe), but doesn't hesitate for a moment to use them like chess pawns. Even when she has the entire population of a Basque village ''lie down and die to prove a point to Kirika'', her [[DissonantSerenity preternatural motherliness]] prevents her from becoming this. She also [[VillainsDyingGrace sacrifices her life at the end to save Kirika]], despite the fact that Kirika and Mireille rejected becoming the "True Noir" and ruined her plan.]] [[spoiler:Altena]] exists to answer the question "is it possible to ''act like'' a CompleteMonster without ''being'' a CompleteMonster"? Nightmare Fuel IT IS.
** How Does that make any sense? The concept of the CompleteMonster is based on a person's actions, not by just their words and attitude.

* FoeYay: Lady Silvana, aka the Intoccabile, gives Mireille an excessively long (and open-mouthed) KissOfDeath. And beforehand, when they were children, she was ''[[StalkerWithACrush very]]'' [[StalkerWithACrush obsessed with Mireille]], traumatizing her for life. Her behavior did not seem to be so much of an obsession with Mireille herself, as much as an obsession with domination and control. The kiss seemed to be more about putting fear into Mireille by confusing her and establishing dominance.

* {{Fanon}}: Though Mireille's brother is never named on-screen, there's a tendency to name him "Roland" in some fan works, which actually comes from a mistranslation of their father Laurent's name, which in Japanese wounds up sounding like "Rorando", which is identical to the pronunciation of Roland in the same language.
