* DesignatedHero: Uon Hakuron, a [[CrazyJealousGuy possessive]] BastardBoyfriend who has Kurumi kidnapped and forces himself upon her a number of times, and yet is treated as the hero of the story.
* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Inverted. Some consider this manga to have an Esoteric ''Sad'' Ending as they were satisfied that the BastardBoyfriend [[TheHeroDies got killed]] [[KarmicDeath karmically]], and the girl he messed up so badly regained her normal life.]]
* HoYay: Hakuron and [[spoiler: Fuuron]]'s first meeting ''dripped'' with this. I.e, how do they [[spoiler: seal their partnership]]? With the second [[IKissYourHand kneeling and kissing the first's hand]].
* MemeticMutation: [[http://i48.tinypic.com/358qjac.jpg This page]] in which Hakuron shows off his martial arts skills to Kurumi has spawned a ''ton'' of parody fanart on Pixiv.
* {{Narm}}: People have laughed their butts off after merely reading ''plot summaries'' about this series. Um, yeah.
** Special mention goes to the scene where Kurumi donates blood to Hakuron to save his life, and when he wakes up and finds out, he bites open the skin on his wrist and [[HemoErotic starts licking up his blood]], because even though they can't be a couple in real life, at least they can be together inside his bloodstream.
* NightmareFuel:
** Aside of Shinjou's rapes? Considering that HaouAiren is DarkerAndEdgier compared to other mangas of hers, the amount of violent scenes can get ''very'' high.
** Also, no matter what you think of this manga, there '''is''' a scene that fits here perfectly: [[spoiler: Reilan's bloody death at the end of Hakuron's pistol]]. The {{Gory Discretion Shot}}s [[spoiler: and their aversions]] were ''very'' well paced and made the scene genuinely terrifying.
* SoBadItsGood: It's actually so cheesy, over-the-top and ridiculously overblown, that some people specifically read it to have a laugh. Oops?
* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Reilan's ThanatosGambit.]] Specially for the [[BreakTheCutie devastating effects]] on poor [[spoiler: Kurumi]].
** YMMV ''hugely'' on that, but [[spoiler:Hakuron's death]] counts on that as well if you see it [[spoiler: as RedemptionEqualsDeath]].
*** Even if you disagree with the last part, [[spoiler: poor Kurumi's genuinely heartbroken reaction]] may make you sniffle a little.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was ''almost'' licensed by Creator/VizMedia for release in North America.
** Also, the whole Drama CD is about what would've happened [[spoiler: if Hakuron had not died.]]
* TheWoobie: Huo Long, the most sympathetic of Hakuron's group.
** Kurumi. Holy crap, '''Kurumi'''. Maybe one of the biggest woobies EVER created by Shinjou, no matter whether she intended it or not... That poor girl ''really'' needs hugs.
