- Author's Saving Throw: For those who watched Kannazuki no Miko and did not approve of the Rape Is Love plotline between Chikane and Himeko, both Kaon and Himiko were retooled to be tragic but unambiguously goodhearted despite their circumstances, and neither let the ensuing drama compromise their partnership.
- Fan-Preferred Couple:
- Believe it or not, a lot of fans prefer pairing Kuu and Setsuna with each other rather than with Kyoshiro.
- As to be expected, the Queens of Yuri are still loved by the fanbase. (Even getting an entire OVA dedicated to them.)
- The Un-Twist: Kuu being an Absolute Angel
- The Woobie: Himiko, the poor girl being just as tortured as she was in Kannazuki no Miko.
YMMV / Shattered Angels
