These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.

Isaac, you're too anime. Explanation An inside joke with fans and in the comic itself, thanks to Isaac flaunting several tropes common to Shōnen anime protagonists such as his spiky hair, tendency to sparkle, brooding anti-hero antics completed by having what is implied to be a Dark and Troubled Past. All revealed in Chapter 3. The phrase is a reference to this installment of Gunshow.
