''Kurau: Phantom Memory'' was pretty much a "sleeper" title when it was released in 2004, [[NeedsMoreLove being somewhat overshadowed]] by other popular anime titles during that period. Since then it has gained a reputation as a classic though, with a heart-warming and dramatic plot, well-rounded characters and beautiful animation. It's a must-see for people who like their "hard" sci-fi to go along with believable human relationships.

* VaporWare: For awhile, it felt like the North American release would fall into this trope. ADVFilms licensed it after only a few episodes had aired back in the summer of 2004. Then months and years went by with no word on a release date. It was finally released in late 2007 and early 2008. This probably contributed to its sleeper status, at least at the sales level. Most of the initial buzz had died off, the {{fansub}}s had been in [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil wide circulation,]] and [[AspectRatio 4:3 content]] had begun to fall out of favor when the [=DVDs=] finally hit stores.

Added DiffLines:

* TearsOfJoy: Kurau, at the end of the first episode when Christmas reforms. Despite her gender, it also has overtones of ManlyTears due to how badass and reserved Kurau normally is -- the series as a whole is ''very'' good at creating powerful emotional moments through quiet understatement.

* AdultFear: When the energy from the experiment hits Kurau, her father's panic is heartrending.
