  • But Now I Must Go: In the finale, he willingly accepts the end of his mortal life and goes to Heaven. He still promises to return to visit, though.
  • The Chosen One: Lily has been keeping him from waking up because she thinks he can kill Eve before the latter's awakening destroys the world. The final episode even implies he is an incarnation of Adam.

  • Convenient Coma: He is comatose in the real world.

  • Pragmatic Hero: One hand, he can be nice and polite to anyone who can help return him and even sympathize with other people's problems. On the other hand, he has no problem with killing remorseless criminal in a gruesome manner.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Haruto is not exactly surprised by the fact that he is trapped in a dream world populated by witches. He just goes along what with Lily and Kanzaki tell him because there is no other alternative. He also has no problem with killing.
