* The ED, done in live-action, is very creepy. [[DealWithTheDevil What the hell is that unholy thing inside the trunk?!]] The way things are going, this series may need its own page by the time it's done. Is {{GAINAX}} going DarkerAndEdgier [[NightmareFuel/NeonGenesisEvangelion aga]][[NightmareFuel/RebuildOfEvangelion in?]]
** In episode 2, there's a seemingly innocent and unfortunate young woman who [[spoiler:had such a deep fear of abandonment and such a harsh upbringing that she ended up [[{{Yandere}} killing people to make them "stay" with her]]]].
** Episode [[FourIsDeath 4]] sets the bar pretty high.
*** To elaborate, [[spoiler:an obsessive {{fangirl}} forces her favorite author to rewrite the third book of his trilogy to her liking, and "educates" him by alternately killing him and his lover, using a special Phantom Book so that [[EquivalentExchange each one's death]] [[DeathIsCheap brings the other back to life]]. She ultimately gets [[KarmicDeath dragged down to the underworld herself]].]]
** Episode 5 features [[spoiler:a true magician who can perform magic without a Phantom Book, who kills people by turning their blood to mercury, not to mention his "daughters", including one [[OurHomunculiAreDifferent homunculus]]. And everything he does is ForScience. Granted, his victims got better, but it was still damn creepy.]]
** Episode 6 explores a village where [[spoiler:80% of the inhabitants are ReplacementGoldfish puppets who will panic when something unfamiliar appears and try to kill whatever caused their stress. At their creator's command, they go after the HeroOfAnotherStory, and get [[KillItWithFire burned down to nothing]].]]
** Episode 7 continues this trend, focusing on [[spoiler:FantasticDrug users who go to extreme lengths to satisfy their addiction, repeatedly stabbing the creator of said drug (perfume). They also FeelNoPain, until they're hit with another perfume, which ''amplifies'' their sense of touch to an excruciating degree. Yet another perfume is able to actually [[DrivenToSuicide drive people to commit suicide]]!]]
** One of the first stories in the Light novels has this ''in spades.'' [[spoiler: The head chef is using a phantom book to make the ultimate dish...her end result is to feed her master his own brain, ''while he's still alive!'' He doesn't notice that his soup is being served from his own cranium.]]
