** Something of a deconstruction, it's revealed that most of them (except Kazukiyo) abide by ''some'' code of morality as the series goes on. i.e., upon learning that [[spoiler: Miharu is a Kai]], Kiyotsugu refuses to disclose said knowledge [[spoiler: to protect her from Kazukiyo. And when Kiyoharu is the one who spills the beans, Kiyotsugu is all OhCrap]].

''Gasaraki'' was produced by {{Sunrise}}, directed by Ryosuke Takahashi of ''Anime/ArmoredTrooperVotoms'' fame and originally aired in 1998. Creator/{{ADV Films}} released a translated version. The script was primarily written by Toru Nozaki but also included the contributions of Chiaki J. Konaka and Yuichiro Takeda. There is a bit of notable trivia for more recent anime fans as the first big "series-wide" directorial-related job a certain Goro Taniguchi had - he was "assistant director" for the series and helped to make it (somewhat) comprehensible. His work here would lead to him being allowed to fully direct and produce ''Anime/{{Planetes}}'' (which could not possibly be more different from this show) and ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' (which, on some level, might be seen as an alternative take on a couple of the same themes as ''Gasaraki'', just [[ByronicHero from a different viewpoint]]).

* FollowTheLeader: The entire show's been accused of ripping roughly a good three-quarters of its concepts and plot directly from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Exactly how much this is true has been [[FlameWar hotly debated]] over the years; while there are some ''very'' obvious similarities (the clear comparisons between [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEELE and SYMBOL]], the dysfunctional-family-exploiting-a-son-as-a-pilot dynamic, Miharu's apparent similarities to Rei Ayanami, and [[spoiler:the "divine" origins of the key systems of the mecha]]) the show does take a fairly different direction in the end, with somewhat different messages about the meaning of family and honor and a take on love that ''wholly'' contradicts some of ''Eva'''s Freudian assertions.



* HitchhikersLeg: Used in an early episode of ''{{Anime/Gasaraki}}'' by two female JSSDF soldiers in a war-torn country when they need to borrow a set of wheels to find their missing comrade, and a couple passing Americans are more than happy to oblige after seeing them posed on the side of the road. [[SexyMentor Ataka]] is amused, while [[{{Bifauxnen}} Kaburagi]] is visibly embarrassed afterwards.
