* SoundtrackDissonance: The opening theme is a peppy, upbeat electronic pop song that doesn't match the series at all.

* [[spoiler:ShootTheShaggyDog]]ShootTheShaggyDog: One of the most spiteful ever. Kiyoko, having already lost everyone and everything she cared about, having been forced into debt, despair, and work as a call-girl by the very Countess supposedly trying to "save the world" whilst ruining the lives around her, and who in lonely desperation turned to a member of the opposing Gilgamesh who then impregnated her, dies after mutating into a birthing cocoon for the hybrid lifeform. In the climactic final battles against the twisted Enkidu, his cohorts, and the Gilgamesh forces, it's revealed that they're essentially unstoppable and un-killable. This leads to the Kill 'em All deaths of pretty much everyone in the cast not already dead at this point. In the end, it's revealed that the TeaR organism responsible for the first near-apocalypse and which has instigated the horrible events of the story is actually a living manifestation of the Countess's own petty, dark, hateful, jealous, twisted heart, and that she's directly responsible for everything without realising it, despite ostensibly and ironically trying to fix it. Upon this revelation, she accepts the death of Humanity and allows TeaR to wipe out all life on Earth. To add insult to injury, in the odd, meta-void left behind, TeaR is then killed by the Gilgamesh spawn from the husk of what was left of Kiyoko, meaning that TeaR won't go on to recreate the planet in its image and it's all gone for good.

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: What ever [[spoiler: Tear tells Kiyoko]] at the end of the series ([[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow that the audience]] [[TheUnreveal doesn't get to hear]]) seems to immediately destroy her sanity, causing her to stab the former to death. Cue SlasherSmile.


Added DiffLines:

* PsychoticSmirk / SlasherSmile. [[spoiler: Kiyoko]] gives one after [[spoiler: stabbing Tear to death with the tuning fork at the end.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheUnreveal: [[spoiler: Tear]] tells [[spoiler: Kiyoko]] something at the very end. The audience never hears what was said... but whatever it was, the latter [[GoMadFromTheRevelation does]] ''[[GoMadFromTheRevelation not]]'' [[GoMadFromTheRevelation take it well.]]

Sometime in the [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture super-present]], the fabled and mysterious Tomb of Gilgamesh is discovered by scientists who are digging around in Uruk (modern day Mesopotamia). A research center is promptly set up to study the strange energy which is being emitted by the site, but a series of events triggered by the site's discoverer, Madoka Terumichi, soon result in a global catastrophe which knocks out all electronics worldwide and turns the sky into a giant electromagnetic mirror. Madoka (who now calls himself Enkidu, after a character in the ancient ''[[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Epic of Gilgamesh]]''), is labelled a terrorist and promptly vanishes.

* AdaptationDistillation: A lot was changed from ShotaroIshinomori's original 1972 work. Most noticeably, the removal of extraterrestrials. The anime does share common themes with the original, though. The brother-sister pair Tatsuya and Kiyoko, along with an onyomi Enkidu name show up in both, although the kanji for the latter differs from the original. May also be a PragmaticAdaptation.

* EverybodyKnewAlready: When the truth of Reiko is spelled out [[spoiler: that "she" is technically a boy]], everyone but Tohru (and perhaps the audience) already knew, and acts like "What? You just figured out?"

Although it does bear something of a passing resemblance to ''NeonGenesisEvangelion'', which it may have been influenced by, the manga this series is based on dates from 1972.
