- Ho Yay: It is very easy to read Takemaru's behavior after his HeelFace Turn as him being Tsundere for Kakeru. Given that the Omake comics Lampshade this, it's probably not accidental.
- The Woobie: Any who has psychic powers in this series falls into this to some degree. They already had bad living conditions growing up, get recruited by an organization that says they'll help them, but really preform various experiments, and it gets worse from there.
- Jerkass Woobie: Takemaru, given his backstory.
