* DubInducedPlotHole: In the final WhamLine, [[spoiler:Mima's expression of "I'm the real one!" is said in Rumi's voice, giving the viewer one final MindScrew as to whether it truly is Mima or not. This is lost in the dub where not only is the line changed to the less intimidating "I'm the real thing!", but it is also said in Mima's voice.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LossOfIdentity: This is arguably ''the'' central theme of the film. For most of the story, Mima is caught between the horns of a dilemma -- on one hand is the idol life she's trying to escape, with the fixed persona demanded by ContractualPurity; on the other is the world of acting, where one's identity is uncertain by nature. Not only does she have to conquer her fears and doubts about this new, more fluid self (as a psychiatrist points out), but certain people are very interested in forcing her back into the chains of her old self -- or ''stealing'' her old identity from her since she no longer wants it. [[spoiler:The climax of the film boils down to her rejection of Me-mania's and Rumi/Idol-Mima's assertion that abandoning her old image makes her a fraud.]]

** Not so in the English dub, where [[spoiler: the line is "I'm the real thing" and said in Mima's normal voice.]] Given as the dub is otherwise accurate, it seems they just didn't catch that nuance. This completely overlooks the fact that [[spoiler:in the foreground of the shot, the person in the driver's seat actually has ''Rumi's hair.'']]

* EyeScream: A man gets stabbed in the eye by a supposed pizza delivery guy. Another man is murdered, and later on his body is shown with the eye sockets all bloody and the eyes missing. [[spoiler:Me-Mania gets hit in the eye with a hammer.]] There's basically a sample of this in every murder.
