* BittersweetEnding:[[spoiler:Nearly a DownerEnding. Tsukiko comes to terms with her past and saves Tokyo from the black ooze stuff. However, we have no indication that anyone else got over their problems.

* TheAtoner: Played subtly. [[spoiler:Hirukawa has a sick, disturbing fascination with his daughter (and young girls in general) and is also a DirtyCop taking bribes from {{Yakuza}}, then committing petty robberies and break-ins when the Yakuza demand some money back. Eventually growing disgusted with himself (after being implied to rape a young girl), he accidentally catches what seems to be Lil' Slugger. After that makes him a hero, he seems to be trying to make a wholesome, honest connection with his daughter.]]
