Added DiffLines:

* RedOniBlueOni: Ren and Miu in all matters.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: InUniverse, Mitsuka-sensei qualifies as this, with her constant sexual come-ons and tendency to strip in front of her students. While she is quite physically attractive, she consistently turns her students off with her behavior.


* DoubleMeaningTitle: The odd capitalization of "[=DearS=]" is explained as the way the race combined two words to make their name, but then there's the SlaveCollar around the S in the logo, the two capitalized letters being [[{{BDSM}} D & S]], and the DearS themselves being a SlaveRace.

Even though the only letter the two have in common is the s at the end, likely meaning that the creators didn't really understand how cute she is.English plurals work and that "dears" is the plural form of "dear" anyway, so the "friends" connection is pointless.

** During the Dollfest chapter, Neneko has two dolls on display that look a lot like Shinku and Suigintou from Anime/RozenMaiden.* SlaveCollar: All [=DearS=] have one.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleEntendre: The show loves this trope, to the point where most of the episode titles can count as examples.

* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Mitsuka-sensei is this in spades, and even the horny male teenagers in her class are turned off by her (despite being very attractive aesthetically) because of how far she takes this trope. It also might have something to do with Mitsuka being what Japan calls a ChristmasCake, meaning over the age of 25, and thus automatically unappealing because they are "unmarriable". The series on occasion pokes fun of the concept.

* CursedWithAwesome: Seriously, Takeya, what is ''wrong'' with you?



* {{Deconstruction}}: Two of them. One is of the concept of a slave race, which [[spoiler:the [=DearS=] set themselves up to be, and the reasons why are rather disturbing.]] The other, somewhat less serious one is Mitsuka-sensei, a deconstruction of the HotForTeacher trope. She is, objectively speaking, good looking, but in both the anime and manga she takes hitting on her own students so far ''even the hormone addled males'' find her to be FetishRetardant, and it's heavily implied that she might actually get somewhere if she wasn't trying so hard.

* ExtremeDoormat: Takeya is actually one of the people who gives Ren the best treatment she receives in the series, and he actually gets a bit better about it, as he honestly does not how a guy should relate to girls, thanks to having no positive role models. Further, Ren is not the [=Dears=] who is treated the worst in the series either. One of the male [=DearS=] is shown routinely, and ''horrifically'' physically, verbally, and emotionally abused by his "master" [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil who relishes calling him his slave.]]



* LostInTranslation: the final page of the English manga includes a sentence ("Now, let us depart for the front, Takeya") that is so seemingly out of place (due to the word "front") that one black market source of the manga included a full paragraph note on that sentence and what it may have actually meant in the original Japanese.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtShift: All over the place in the manga. Even the main characters often become little more than stick figures in scenes where they don't feature prominently, and sometimes even when they do feature prominently find themselves turning to stick-figures in lieu of suffering a FaceFault.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: Chapters 41 and 42 are just one big wham after another.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: In chapter 34, Ren gets her hair caught in the pool drain and almost drowns. This happens so frequently to people that have hair far shorter than hers that it's a well documented pool-hazard.
