Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Tell us what you want for once!" It's rather close to being a Crowning Moment of Ho Yay.
    • The end of chapter 56 (the last one) is both this and a total Tear Jerker.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Igneous. He may be prejudiced towards +Anima and Kimunle, but he has his (a little twisted) reasons and tries to serve his country with all his strength. At the end he (in a sense) loses two people he loved because of Anima.
  • Ho Yay: Nevermind that they're kids. Husky being constantly mistaken for a hot girl generally leads to lots of interesting situations, but particularly in the first chapter, Cooro either deliberately hits on Husky, or is very oblivious that That Came Out Wrong and just likes being dramatic. Even though he knows Husky's a boy. There's a lot of Cooro/Husky subtext, in fact, as well as an instance of Senri licking Cooro and Rose getting the wrong idea.
  • Moral Event Horizon: When Cooro shows a tiny bit of free will Fly lies to him to crush the little bit of resistance Cooro built up.
  • Nightmare Fuel: THIS. AND ESPECIALLY THIS.
    • Nana's past. Her father chasing her through the forest at night with a machete. She does still have many nightmares and flashbacks about it, understandably.
      • Also some Fridge Horror; Nana's safe, but her dad is drunk, irrational, has a deadly weapon, and is headed home where Nana's abused and exceedingly vulnerable mother is...
    • Um, how about Cooro's birth? His mom died while pregnant with him and following the custom of her village, was left out for the crows to eat. The crows start eating her and then baby Cooro bursts out of her stomach and flies after them.
  • No Yay: Fly's behaviour with Cooro is just creepy.
  • Tear Jerker: All of the kids' pasts, but special mention goes to... most of volume 10, really, and chapter 55 'Goodbye' in particular.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Husky is a guy? Really?
    • Not restricted to the viewer.
