- Discontinuity: The visual novel works as Nakoruru's backstory, but how many parts of the VN are canon is unknown.
- Iron Woobie: Nakoruru, even more than in the main series.
- If Nakoruru and Rimururu aren't Moe enough in the main series, here both appear even more Moe than before.
- For the new characters, Manari and Mikato, especially in the OVA.
- Nightmare Fuel: Nakoruru's nightmares in the OVA, which didn't stop when she's awake. Knowing the character designer is the same than Kite and Mezzo Forte doesn't help at all.
- Ship Tease: Yantamu with Nakoruru, as well with Manari.
- Tear Jerker:
- All the angst of Nakoruru wanting to be normal and getting feelings for Yantamu that can't get reciproce for being Married to the Job.
- And if that wasn't enough, the OVA has Nakoruru's mother seen in her flashbacks, who's the one who said she can't get married for being The Chosen One with the mother's flashback of his husband dying in front of her.Nakoruru: Mom, are you crying?Nakoruru's mother: What kind of question is that?Nakoruru: Nothing, it seems you're going to cry, mother.Nakoruru's mother: I won't cry. That's it, I won't cry. (a tear falls in Nako's cheek) I'm fine.
- Toy Ship: Mikato and Hokute.
YMMV / Nakoruru: Ano Hito kara no Okurimono
