* FlowerInHerHair: Akiko wears two beautiful flower hairsticks.


Added DiffLines:

* LongHairIsFeminine: Akiko's hair is long, perfectly straight and impeccably groomed, as opposed to Shigemaru's wives, all of whom have shoulder-hair length (at most). Compared to them, Akiko is very feminine and sophisticated.

** The message left by Akiko to her servant ("Wait for us, we will return soon") suggests that Akiko was merely playing along until Shigemaru calmed down and that she intended to convince him to come back to the city. We never really find out for certain if Akiko did feel something for Shigemaru or if she saw him as her puppet.

* MoodWhiplash: For example, we go from the incredibly bleak and depressing ''No Longer Human'' to "In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom," which features slapstick humor even more over-the-top than ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' gets (and is a [[TheMusical musical]]...) and then it becomes bleak again.
