* JerkAss: For the first half of the series, the Gekkostate crew is at best apathetic towards Renton, with Holland and Talho getting full on abusive at times. The only solid exception is Eureka.

Other than that, he constantly abuses Renton during the first half of the series until he finally realizes how damaging his actions are to Renton and it takes a while for him to have a good relationship with Talho too.

** Many characters and especially they relationships are expies of those from Gundam, especially Anime/AfterWarGundamX (Eureka of Tiffa, Renton of Garrod, Holland of Jamil Neate and Talho of Sara Tyrrell) and the original Anime/MobileSuitGundam (the children, Ray and Charles of Hamon and Ramba Ral). Anemone also follows in the long tradition of tragic cyber-newtype girls.
