* In Episode 5, Saruhiko lands a clean throwing knife stab into Misaki's shoulder. While it is not very deep, and Misaki was clearly in pain, he managed to move on after that by simply bandaging the cut with a handkerchief, without any hint of an infection. A wound like that may fester pretty badly... Until you realize that Saruhiko threw the knife ''after'' heating it up with his ex-Homura powers, which pretty much sterilizes the blade like a high-temperature bullet. Also serves as a somewhat twisted CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming because even in his lunacy Saruhiko still takes care not to hurt Misaki too badly. You might notice that he actually threw two knives but only one connected and only barely, whereas the knives he threw at Rikio were more than effective.

** He seemed to seriously think his work would be used to bring peace and happiness to everyone, and to hate the possibility of it being used for war. Sometime after the war ends, he must have found out what his employers were actually doing to the world. He goes to live alone in his airship because he's immortal and he wants to escape from it all. There's the horror, both to him and to the viewer, of what would have happened had he completed his work, plus the horror of what might have happened with him personally when he thought abotu that, had he not been immortal...

Added DiffLines:

** After ''Return of Kings'', [[spoiler: becoming close with Hieda and seeing him often, while still remembering his fake memories about being a person who ''never existed'', in Hieda's body. Awkward, yes, but more than that. Sort of heartbreaking and terrifying.]]

** Then, after the start of the series, [[spoiler: he lives for over a year in someone else's body. He has two sets of memories of two different pasts, and the one that matches his body is fake. And if he thought about trying to get intimate with Kuroh (or anyone else), he'd not want to on two levels- on one hand, he'd be using that poor kid's body. On the other hand, he probably feels dishonest about creating impressions based on Hieda's looks - in his original body, he's not as small and cute, and he's also not Japanese. He's beautiful, but he probably doesn't realize that...]]
** And through it all, he's so cheerful the whole time.

Added DiffLines:

** Both Yata and Saruhiko are technically the top fighters of their teams, disregarding their Kings. And yet somehow neither of them have seemingly managed to beat the other, only ever shown ending in draws...


* Yatagarasu is, in low, a three-legged crow that is a messenger of ''kami''. Three legs: between Yata's own legs and his skateboard which he almost always is seen using, particularly to fight, it certainly fits him!

* In the first season, Anna doesn't do much aside from scry, cling to Mikoto, dress in ElegantGothicLolita, and act as the general MoralityPet and "princess" of HOMRA. [[spoiler: "Princess" ends up being a very apt description, as in Missing Kings, she succeeds Mikoto as the Red King.]]


* Tatara died on 23:45 of December 7. Anna's birthday is on December 8, just 15 minutes away. Think about it. The side materials sort of hint to the fact that [[spoiler: Anna may never be able to celebrate her birthday like a normal kid ever again.]] Confirmed via the manga ''Memories of Red''. [[spoiler: In the final chapter, we see much more of the circumstances leading up to Tatara's death--specifically in their relation to Anna.]]

* Whoever [[spoiler: Shiro]] actually was, before [[spoiler: the Colourless King took over his body and confronted the Silver King with it on that fateful night]]. We never find out who he was and it isn't guaranteed that he had no family or friends who would be worried sick about his disappearance, and if so they'll never know what happened to him. And considering the ending, [[spoiler: he's as good as dead, or gone forever as the new host for the Silver King. There's also the possibility that the original owner of that body was consumed by the Colorless King. Shiro/Adolf's dialogue suggests that this is what happens if the Colorless King inhabits a body for a sufficient period of time. There was also a flashback scene of the innocent boy getting snatched by the Colorless King. If it was the King's original body, and it had to have a soul to move, then it wouldn't make sense for that body to be awake and aware when we are shown the POV of the Colorless King heading for it.]]
** The last episode of ''Return of Kings'' [[spoiler: has Shiro/Weismann return to his old body since the Dresden Slate is destroyed and he no longer has his powers. When "Shiro" wakes up afterwards, he has no idea what happened or who Kuroh or Neko are. While we don't know what exactly happened to "Shiro" afterwards, it does alleviate much of the above Fridge Horror.]]

* The color balances/filters of the anime's various locations might very well [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience represent the territory of each Clan]]. If you pay close attention, a great majority of the city has a distinct, blue tone to it. Guess which Clan has unfettered access to the city's various resources and surveillance? Scepter4. See the red/magenta blanketing everywhere in Izumo's bar? That's HOMRA, the ''red'' clan's, headquarters. The interior of Weissman's blimp was pretty silvery. The Gold King's territory was littered with yellowish accents.
** And in ''Return of Kings'', the color green starts getting more prominence (color filter's, plant life, etc), signifying how the Green Clan is everywhere and rapidly gaining traction.
