Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Both Karin and Kenta can fall on this due to their strange compunctions about her vampirism. Kenta, for one thing, acts ''offended'' when Karin's instintive bite paliates his mother's depression and makes her and strong-willed enough to fight off her harassers, and even claims he wants her back to her previous state! Even worse, Karin somehow agrees him and refuses to do it again. This is part of the same problem, as Karin also refuses to bite Kenta even when it would be an entirely beneficial for him (she doesn't even suck blood, she ''gives'' it) and would make him happy enough to end her blood ordeals.


* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The manga is shonen/shojo despite having a fair amount of blood and sexuality, and it doesn't help tht its creator has drawn hentai and eroge games. However, given the heavy parallelisms drawn between Karin's condition and the human period, it's probable the author had in mind precisely to help young female readers to get comfortable with their sexual maturity ("geez, at least my monthly problem isn't spectacularly visible like Karin-chan's, I guess it's not so embarrassing after all").

* AwesomeMusic: The anime opening, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7i6ZXp1cauY "Scarlet"]] by Brace;d.

Added DiffLines:

** The VanHelsingHateCrimes are shown in full during Elda's flashback. We get a harrowing scene of a vampire family executed under the sunlight: a husband, wife and son who we get to see slowly and agonizingly ''desiccate'' under the sun until they're nothing but shriveled charcoal. Considering this is a romantic comedy, it's not what anyone expected to see.

Added DiffLines:

** Although, while not outright stated, it is implied that [[spoiler: the Psyche being released from her physical bonds has released vampires from the curse of infertility, allowing them all to rebuild their population]].

Added DiffLines:

** Ren practically going on a rampage when he finds out Karin [[spoiler: had been kidnapped.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: The ending, with [[spoiler:Karin's family erasing her memory of them and of vampires to let her live as a human with Kenta.]] A nice BittersweetEnding fitting the tone of the series or gratuitous drama that unnecessarily spoils a happy ending? Opinions are divided.


** A good part of Episode 18. Ren thought that his classmate, a {{Bishonen}} boy, was a girl. However, he realizes toward the end what the thrumping in his chest is: he discovered his blood's infinity. So he naturally grabs the boy and sinks his teeth into his neck. The reaction from three male students is pretty similar to a YaoiFan's.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: During a flashback, when Elda is struck by a [[HorrorHunger craving for blood]] due to not feeding for a while, she tackles Alfred to the ground. Even with her snarling down at him with [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes]] and [[GameFace sharp, pointy fangs]], Alfred is taken off guard for all of three seconds. Then he relaxes and tilts his head to better expose his neck for her. D'awww...

Added DiffLines:

** [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Berserk!Karin]], when she holds her blood in too long. It's shown that any vampire who does not bite a human on a regular basis has a tendency to slip into it, but seeing adorable little Karin reduced to primal fury is its own kind of scary.


Added DiffLines:

** IronWoobie: Elda. She could have had what Karin had, and it's clear that even now she dearly misses Alfred. Unfortunately prejudice against vampires was at full swing at the time, and her affinity (love) was the final nail in the coffin for their relationship.


* TheWoobie: Karin is the black sheep of the family because of her ability to [[CursedWithAwesome give blood, stay in the sunlight, and eat human food]], and thus, she is one of the loneliest vampires. [[spoiler: When her little sister Anju becomes a full vampire, she realizes how alone she is as she cries as she makes breakfast for herself.]]

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Brownlick vampires. Since Karin's blood [[spoiler: is the only thing that can restore fertility in vampires,]], and the vampires are facing extinction, they plan to [[spoiler: suck her blood and use her to breed a new "psyche"]] like they had, possibly hundreds of times, before. This is nothing out of the ordinary for them, as this seems to be a sort of tradition among vampires, and they honestly don't see anything wrong with what they're doing. They realize the error of their ways by the end, however.
