* ArcFatigue: Averted. Almost five entire episodes are spent in one place, with virtually no action and a whole lot of Mahiro and Yoshino arguing with Samon. [[MundaneMadeAwesome This is much less boring than it sounds.]]
* BrokenBase: [[Creator/AniplexUSA Aniplex's]] refusal to release Blu-Rays nor an English dub for this series. See BadExportForYou in the Trivia section for more.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The two old Kusaribe ladies are extremely popular for [[LampshadeHanging lampshading and mocking]] Hakaze´s attraction to Yoshino.
* GodModeSue: Hakaze can be seen as a {{deconstruction}} of this. She's ridiculously powerful--able to vaporize an entire mountain and [[spoiler:TimeTravel]], while other mages can't do much besides FlashStep and magic shields--plus, the Tree of Genesis [[RealityWarper manipulates reality]] so that she always succeeds. The problems start when she realizes the Tree probably killed Aika to give Mahiro a reason to help her...and to preemptively MurderTheHypotenuse, since she later falls in love with Yoshino. [[spoiler:The Tree eventually takes over the world and kills billions of people with the support of Hakaze, who was unwittingly TheDragon. Hakaze accidentally causes Aika's ''suicide'' by StableTimeLoop. She then pulls an indirect HoistByHisOwnPetard by using her power to train the Mage of Exodus until he's strong enough to destroy the Tree of Genesis, because her own powers are useless against it, for obvious reasons. In the end, like all other mages, she's BroughtDownToNormal.]]
* HoYay: There's a lot of gratuitous touching between the boys on chapter covers. (Not so much in the manga itself, though — so [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbleww8gki1r7gyca.gif the anime took it upon itself to fix that]].)
** There is also that flashback scene where Aika tells Mahiro that he would be the kind of person suited to date Yoshino. When Mahiro acts disturbed by the idea, she clarifies that she didn't mean it literally. But then adds that he should treat Yoshino well, because no matter what happens, [[TheNotLoveInterest he will remain by Mahiro's side]].
* {{Moe}}: Hakaze in the latter half of the series.
* {{Narm}}: When Hakaze reveals the date, [[spoiler: and proves that she's stuck two years in the past]], she doesn't specify the date, but does the common "XX AD," thing. Many fans wound up backtracking back through a particularly dramatic and suspenseful sequence.
** In the anime, when Samon is thinking to himself, the background becomes a conspicuous purple, cheap "wee-oo, wee-oo" sound effects are played in the background, and Samon himself appears to be floating through space. It's difficult to take seriously. There's also the orgasmic gasping noises he makes when it seems like he's been out played. And his frequent {{Sword Plant}}ing quickly turns into an OverlyLongGag. Whether all this is ''supposed'' to be funny is hard to determine; it's very silly, but everything going on around him is dead serious.
*** Not to mention, his blatant and repeated [[VerbalTic overuse of the word]] '''[[LargeHam SHOUNEN!]]''' (young men!) was hilarious.
