*GirlNextDoor: Kasahara's appearance is plain and somewhat boyish, befitting [[OneOfTheBoys her personality.]] She's also frank about how she sees things, particularly [[BelligerentSexualTension when it comes to Dojou]] constantly being on her case.

* BloodlessCarnage: Seriously, this must be the cleanest civil war ever. Few people are actually killed by the series' ATeamFiring; most are only injured or knocked unconscious.
** It's actually justified: Both sides wear SWAT/riot police/military-grade body armor[[note]]the MBC appear to be wearing SWAT gear, while the LDF are wearing what appears to be JGSDF-issue[[/note]], but both sides have very few high-caliber firearms that can effectively punch through it - most engagements are conducted with 9mm submachineguns[[note]]MP5s for the MBC and Mineaba M9s for the LDF[[/note]]. This means that being shot will undoubtedly be painful, but rarely outright lethal. The system implemented for what is and is not kosher in these firefights seems to have been ''designed'' to minimize actual human casualties.
** Also, as with modern warfare, most rounds are being fired to ''suppress'' the opposition, instead of being intended to kill.
** Subverted with the Hino Massacre.
* BoisterousBruiser: Genda, big time.

** The novel explains this a bit more -- because the university Iku went to didn't offer the classes she needed to qualify for a library job, she had to take night school courses on the side. (That said, she's still not a great student.)

* EverybodyLives: [[spoiler: Despite a fierce battle in which there are casualties on both sides, none of the main cast die. However, Genda is seriously injured, and medically retired with a two-rank promotion, the Kanto Library commander resigns, and Doujo is temporarily afflicted with memory loss.]]
** [[spoiler: The latter is an only-anime thing, since in the novels the one who confronts the crazy director, Sugahara, is the branch supervisor Yokota, who gets serious burn injuries. Though thankfully he also lives.]]



* HimeCut: Shibasaki



* MyBelovedSmother: Kasahara's overprotective mother just wants her to be a girly girl; to be pretty and sweet and to do quiet, ''safe'', girly activities. And if that requires forcing her daughter to leave her beloved but dangerous job, or give up her inappropriate dreams, then so be it.

** In the {{Anvilicious}} Episode 6, several members of the Defense Force are tasked with retrieving a copy of a heavily-censored book. While the title of the book is ''505K'', the description is quite obviously that of ''{{Fahrenheit 451}}''. Considering that the book in their world is referred to as the ''Book of Prophecy'', perhaps {{Some Anvils Need To Be Dropped}}.

* KaijuDefenseForce: The JSDF is said to be staying out of the conflict, and some Library Task Force members remark they have more range and combat time than the JSDF. There are implications, however, that the JSDF is sympathetic to the LTF, given that the LTF's equipment is almost identical to the JSDF, in their weapons, personal kit, and vehicles.
