Added DiffLines:

* MenGetOldWomenGetReplaced: Almost all recurring female characters being (or becoming) immortal. The lead characters Rin and Mimi are immortals and remain at the same physical age throughout the series' 65-year span, while their nameless female informants are replaced with their own younger apprentices after every TimeSkip. Meanwhile, guys like Tamotsu, Maeno, and Teruki are allowed to reach venerable ages on-screen. The only obvious exception is the BigBad Apos but he [[spoiler:is eventually revealed to be a hermaphrodite]].

* ChekhovsBoomerang: A rather interesting case in episode three is that what the gun actually ''is'' isn't shown at all, and is only hinted at until TheReveal. [[spoiler:Shuggo's Time Spore is kept in a jewelry case next to some pictures of him.]] After [[spoiler:Maeno leaves to save Rin]], all that's shown is the empty case, though from the [[spoiler:shape of the cushion]], it becomes evident that whatever was in there was [[spoiler:small and round.]] It's eventually used again when [[spoiler:[[MemeticMutation Rin takes it from Mishio... and EATS IT]].]]

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: [[spoiler:Rin, for the rest of ETERNITY. 30 years from now, it's gonna be SO awkward for her son and any other descendants to be repeatedly asked "Is that you cute LITTLE sister?" again and again...]]

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Teruki's blonde hair is presumably a dye job, and Ruon's orange hair is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] since [[spoiler:she exists in {{Cyberspace}} and uses a [[RobotGirl gynoid body]] in the real world]], but there's no explanation for Rin or Mimi, whose hair are green and lavender respectively.

Added DiffLines:

* AugmentedReality: Becomes so prevalent in the near future of the last couple episodes that a skilled enough hacker can effectively turn himself into TheIllusionist - the thought of turning their AR interfaces off simply never ''occurs'' to people anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* BlessedWithSuck: Being immortal is pretty nifty, overall, but there are a few issues: first, your body will always regenerate ''to the state it was in when you first became immortal''. That's fine if you happen to receive the Seed of Yggdrasil while you're young and healthy, but if you do it while wounded... well, enjoy an eternity of suffering. Rin ends up as one of the last people on Earth to wear glasses (see below) since she was born with bad eyesight and attained her immortality millennia before corrective surgery - so if she had any now, her eyes would just ''heal'' back to their original, defective state. Second, and more importantly, immortal women become paralyzed with suicidal lust in the presence of angels... which normally results in them ''feeding themselves'' to the monster.
** The angels themselves, meanwhile, get a far rawer deal: yes, they become flying, indestructible, superstrong monsters... but they also lose their sanity, essentially turn into animals interested in nothing except the consumption of immortal flesh and which are doomed to die and evaporate in a matter of hours.

* DVDCommentary: FUNimation provides a commentary for episode 2, with Creator/JMichaelTatum (the ADR director, plus the voice of Ihika), Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard (Rin), Creator/JamieMarchi (Mimi) and RobertMcCollum (Kouki). It has a "titular" [[IncrediblyLamePun pun]] and random profanity ([[Creator/JamieMarchi "Fuck!"]] [[Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard "Oh dear."]]) before the opening credits are even over, and continues on from there.
