* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Shu manages to survive the destruction of Hellywood, and is returned to his time period through Abelia's 'bound' technology. A pregnant Sara decides to remain with Abelia and the survivors of Sis' village, deciding to raise her child. And Lala Ru, having regained her hope in humanity through Shu's example, has returned water to the world. However, Lala Ru and Nabuca are dead; and, since the story takes place ten million years into the future, the world is going to end anyway due to the already-bloated sun going supernova]].



* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Sure, Earth survives 10 billion years into the future, but you've sent back a young man who knows that the world will eventually devolve into the world that Shu experienced. Not to mention the fact that he won't be there to save the day when that time comes.]]
** [[spoiler:The world is already like that just go to the Great Rift Valley (Uganda, Rwanda, Eastern Congo), Western Africa, or Afghanistan. Rather than the world devolving, the point seems to be that the world did not and will not change ''at all''. Both the good (people like Sis) and the bad (child armies like Hellywood) persist.]]
** [[spoiler:Also since it's never made exactly clear how time travel works (if it even is that), Shu can try to change the world in TheSlowPath using the knowledge he's gained.]]

** However, the ''one'' thing he does manage to do by the end of the story is [[spoiler:restore Lala Ru's faith in humanity, which results in her HeroicSacrifice to save the remaining survivors of Sis' village]].

* ArtStyleDissonance: It's not exactly cutesy, but it's unusually stylized for such serious subject matter. (Some have compared the art style with ''WorldMasterpieceTheater''.) This arguably works in its favor, softening the blow of the most traumatic scenes.

Added DiffLines:

* BeingEvilSucks: The show goes to great lengths to show the circumstances that drive people to do terrible things, and it doesn't do wonders for their psyches either.

* MacGuffinGirl: Lala Ru. Deconstructed in that she gets a speech about how being one sucks. People only want to use her, and eventually kill each other over her.
