** Though it ties into the show's overall message, there's also a centralized take on this in "A Man's Path". In it, the pathetic central character [[spoiler: Officer Hirukawa]] juxtaposes his increasingly desperate crimes of robbery, burglary and rape in with the a ClicheStorm {{Shonen}} {{Manga}} that he reads for stress-relief. It's ''disturbing'' how easily he mentally maps a male power fantasy narrative about HeroicResolve, IDidWhatIHadToDo and rescuing the DamselInDistress to [[AccidentalAesop justify violent crime]]. In-universe MisaimedFandom much?

* DirtyCop: [[spoiler:Masami Hirukawa]] looks like an honest cop, but in fact [[spoiler:he takes bribes from the Yakuza to cover up a prostitution ring]], and is revealed to be [[spoiler:quite the pervert; see DaddysGirl, {{Lolicon}}, and PervertDad on this page.]]

* {{Lolicon}}: Played very darkly. [[spoiler:Hirukawa]] (a police officer who was taking Yakuza bribes) was something of a pedophile and had a fetish for young girls calling him "Daddy." Later, [[spoiler:when he begins robbing houses to pay off a loan, the daughter of one family walks in on a drugged-up burglar and her parents BoundAndGagged.]] It's implied that he raped her. Still ''later'', it is revealed that [[spoiler:he set up a secret camera in his own daughter's bedroom so he could spy on her getting undressed]]...[[BreakTheCutie and she finds out]].

* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler:Maromi of all things. At the start she is introduced as a beloved icon in Japan. At the end, it is strongly implied that because of Maromi's apparent role in Tokyo's near-destruction that the character has virtually vanished from the public, with the city's citizens refusing to speak of her again.]]

+ AntiEscapismAesop: One of the The central themes theme of the show.show. The "Little Slugger" persona is constantly used as a scapegoat by numerous people who are looking for an excuse to get out of the problems they have. Along with imagining up fantasy worlds such as one straight out of a video game, being attacked or killed by Little Slugger is the go-to excuse for people.
