* In Marchen, fans cried during the moment Elizabeth gave Mar a cool down hug in 'Haritsuke no Seijo'. Some fans cried during the moment Elizabeth made Mar remind him of who he was in the past instead.

* MemeticSexGod: Idolfried Ehrenberg. Just look at that man. Soft, golden locks, sassy pirate attitude. He's everything you could ever want.

* FridgeHorror: "Sei To Shi Wo Wakatsu Kyoukai No Furuido" is a bright, rockish song that really stands out compared to the rest of the album. Even the contents of the song wasn't dark or creepy(there were no deaths or bloodshed, for one). However, during the live concert, the bonus track "Kuroki Shi no Shinkou:" (read:"[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The March of the Black Death]]") was played before and after the song. Then you realize the very real possibility of the 'pitch' that the stepmother's daughter brought back being the black death bacteria, thus contributing significantly to the spread of the black death. Granted, this is only one interpretation of it, albeit an uncomfortably plausible one.

** That's a [[RevengeBeforeReason really dumb revenge]], if so, though. What would give Well Girl immunity to the plague once exposed to it? This revenge may well have laid out the seeds of her second death.
*** She is covered in gold; if that was meant literally, she might be okay...
*** There's a theory that says she drowned in the well and her "coming back" is simply her corpse floating up. It also makes sense if you consider that "gold" and "bacteria" sound the same in Japanese, so her being "covered in gold" has another meaning entirely.



*** The way Revo performed that scream was heartrending.

* UnfortunateImplications[=/=]ValuesDissonance: The FridgeHorror above from Marchen. TheBlackDeath doesn't actually come from wells. It comes from fleas on rats (presumably the reason they showed a silhouette of a rat in the live DVD). However, it was actually thought at the time of TheBlackDeath that it did, in fact, come from the poisoning of well water. The culprits who supposedly poisoned said well water? [[OnceAcceptableTargets The Jews]]. Caused a lot of deadly pogroms. You can probably hazard a guess that a song from the US (where there are more Jews) would have avoided that.

** The song "Tasogare no Savant" is also very difficult to discuss with an American without provoking an argument. Japan does not have nearly as strong a Christian or feminist presence as the US does, so while in Japan, the woman deciding whether or not to bear her child is simply an interesting mechanic through which to discuss the meaning and value of life, an American discussing it would inevitably wind up bogged down in the eternal abortion debate in the US, with many feminists taking issue with the fact that the woman asks the old man for advice on whether or not to keep the child.

** In at least one of their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8WEdWPLSvM live performances of Roman]], they had Ike step in to play the role of one of the jewel thieves at the end of Norowareshi Houseki. Given that he's black (unusual in itself in a Japanese group) and hardly ever steps in for any role besides narrator, it could definitely come off as a none-too-subtle ScaryBlackMan. They might have figured this out, as in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzEQMEBguD0 other performances]], they had Revo - who actually voiced one of the jewel thieves - act out the role.

* FanDumb: Related to BrokenBase. There are plenty of Aramary fanatics who declare that "Sound Horizon sucks after Aramary left!"/"It's not Sound Horizon without Aramary!"(ignoring the fact that Sound Horizon ''is'' [[IAmTheBand Revo]]) yet still listen to every post-Aramary album just to bash the new singers and Revo himself.

* CreatorWorship: Fans have taken to calling Revo "his majesty" and pledging their allegiance to him after every concert. Revo just [[SureWhyNot decided to roll with it]].

* MemeticBystander: Idolfried Ehrenberg has exactly two lines in Märchen, neither of which have anything to do with the plot. Fans have nonetheless constructed an entire backstory for him[[hottip:*:He's the father of the girl from "Sei To Shi Wo Wakatsu Kyoukai No Furuido". He fell down the very same well that März did, and is the entity that März fused with to become Märchen.]], which may or may not be exactly what was intended.
* MemeticMutation: Thanks to NicoNicoDouga and Youtube, [[Manga/ShingekiNoKyojin "Guren no Yumiya"]] is now [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/attack-on-titan-opening-credits-parodies anime's answer to Guile's Theme.]]
