* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In the TV series, Miyu accidentally turning Yaguchi into a baby after biting him, apparently as a consequence of making him happy through her dream realm (he hated his adult life). This breaks the established rules of her bite magic (which had been previously established to be just a mental LotusEaterMachine, leaving the body as an EmptyShell) so much that both Miyu and Reiha are left shocked at it, unable to find a sure explanation. Predictably, it never happens again.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: It can be hard to invest emotionally in the TV series when just every MonsterOfTheWeek plot ends up with everyone involved dead, worse than dead or in Miyu's dream realm.
* EsotericHappyEnding: The artist and her assistant from the TV series episode ''Love of the Dolls''. Surely, they are in a happy relationship at the end, but it is impossible to forget how unhealthy and violent they were to each other either, and one has to wonder what will happen in the future for them.



* LesYay: In the manga, the difference between how Reiha treats Ranka and Miyu is very... extreme. When Ranka is injured in the process of sheilding Miyu from her wrath, Reiha becomes very courtly and [[IKissYourHand kisses her wounded hand]]. Ranka's reaction to this is a shudder.
** In the TV series there's also the episode ''Love of the Dolls'' where an artist and her assistant end up pretty explicitly in a relationship together. [[ValuesDissonance Oddly enough, it gave the impression that the viewer should view this as bad or bittersweet ending]], even though their previous dysfunctional relationship had turned pretty wholesome after becoming romantic.

*** By proxy, [[spoiler: Shidon]] crossed it too. Who is he? Well, he's [[spoiler: ChekhovsGunman Shinma that gave her and Miyu the trinkets that kept Miyu from sensing Chisato's growing Shinma energy]]. Double when he [[spoiler: awakens Chisato's powers for the first time... and manipulates her into killing Hisae.]]
*** And the Shinma that [[spoiler: manipulated Miho via preying on her insecurities and her gorgeous singing voice]] is not much better either.
* {{Narm}}: The really... distracting KabukiSounds from the second OVA.
** The abundance of OffModel animation in the TV series.

* TheWoobie: Aiko. Poor, poor Aiko.
** There are MANY of those, actually. Aside of Aiko we have Aya, Mari [[spoiler: and her sister Rima]], Ruri and Mamoru from the manga; Miyahito, Ryoko, and [[spoiler: the Shinma armor]] from the OAV; Miho from the TV series [[spoiler: as well as Yukari and Hisae]] and Yui Shuugakuin from the AlternateUniverse ''Vampire Princess''.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The soundtrack is by Kenji Kawai, people. Of course it'll be awesome. Special mentions go to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHAQxjk3CIw the OVA opening]], [[http://youtu.be/JTxm4DEHqjA Ranka the Beautiful Girl]] from the second OVA, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjSMJL7dssE "Now comes the conclusion"]] aka "the third OVA's TearJerker song from [[spoiler: the Armor Shinma's death scene]]".

* HellIsThatNoise: The deadpan, unemotional voices of Aiko's parents. Specially when you learn [[spoiler: that they've been DeadAllAlong.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTxm4DEHqjA Ranka the Beautiful Girl]] is both this and awesome. These ''kabuki''-like sounds and the really creepy ''koto''...
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtkDErEt1dc A shadow shows up]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRVlJfbmJ5Q Flames in the darkness]] are also very scary.
** Hearing Miyu's soft, gentle, and so terribly ''creepy'' giggles in the OAV is known to send people into fits of terror. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XptBqsRdzM Hear them around 7:16.]]


* TearJerker: The OP dares you to not cry at least once during the OAV's. Or during Miho's episode.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: The reason why Miyu's father seems so out of it is because Miyu's mother gave him her vampire blood. Now imagine growing up with a father who stumbles around life as if in a waking dream.
