Anesthesia provides examples of

  • Girlish Pigtails: Miyazaki the police officer. Lampshaded by Damien.
  • Groin Attack: Dianne wouldn't hesitate for a low blow when she's serious.
  • The Greys: Mentioned, but not shown in the last chapter of Case #1.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: (perhaps also Ascended Extra?): Case #1 and #2. Kinda. Does the dog count?
  • How Many Fingers?: Six fingers. Chapter 1.5.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: One of Anastasia's reasons for creating the flesh golem.
  • Kicking Ass in All Her Finery: Futakawa. Now, imagine this: perched on the windowsill of a speeding four-wheel-drive driven by an elegant veteran battle butler, in full french maid uniform while firing her automatic machine gun, and a rocket launcher. But in this scene on chapter 2.8, subverted at the 'kicking ass' part.
  • Lethal Klutz : Anastasia. In Case #2, played for laughs with a scalpel, and again with a gun. Then it turns out that the entire Case is caused by this characteristic. Wait till you know the reason behind her ship crashing on the twin's home.
  • Losing Your Head: Anastasia. Don't worry, she has many.
  • Love Freak: Dianne. She probably reads Twilight.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Futakawa's first impression of Anastasia.
  • Non-Action Guy: Damien. He can run a bit, or handle a gun, but looks relatively 'non-action' amidst those people that surround him.
  • Obi-Wan Moment: Anastasia in Case #1. Well, almost.
  • Our Hero Is Dead: Twice in the first two Cases.
  • Parental Abandonment: The twins.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Dianne's room.
  • Psychic Powers: Common in the future.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Damien's plans of getting the protection of the biggest yakuza organization in Japan. And some unmentioned future plans.
  • Shout-Out: Machiavelli's The Prince is mentioned. Case #2 is a shout-out to Mary Shelly's magnum opus. And then there's mention of said novel too, and Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Damien and Dianne.
  • Spit Take: Dianne upon realizing they were up against a yakuza organization with 25,000 members.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Anastasia and the antagonist of Case #2. But then, she is Anastasia after all. And then they fought a deadly battle.
  • Tareme Eyes: Anastasia.
  • Tranquil Fury: Anastasia. Wait. Is she actually angry?
  • Translation Convention: They're Japanese, and they're supposed to speak Japanese.
  • Ultimate Job Security: Anastasia striking the deal with Damien. She can mess up, but no way would he fire her.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite their contrasting personalities, Damien and Anastasia share this trait.
