YMMV: Okane Ga Nai
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Story interpretation is more like it; this manga/anime, since it was written by a man, could be a stealth parody of what happens in many yaoi canon/fanon works.
- Bile Fascination: For some.
- Beast and Beauty: The manga and anime seem to be a very twisted, gender changed, yaoi filled version of this story.
- Fetish Retardant: Many yaoi fans/readers find the story too brutal/horrifying to be sexy in any way.
- Moe: Ayase, although he's an exaggerated version of an Uke, he's still very adorable.
- What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: In many omakes and side arts, (his Chibi form especially), Ayase is depicted with angel wings...
- The Woobie: Ayase, due to his utterly horrible luck in attracting people who want to have their way with him whether he wishes it or not.
