Tarak is the Orwellian, industrial, militarized planet of men. [[BoringbutPractical All food is synthetic, flavorless pills.]] [[RatedMForManly All public gatherings are related to sports, marching, and being manly]]. Everyone wears a uniform. [[CloningBlues Babies are made by merging your genes with those of your buddies in a factory]], and they are raised by dedicated orphanages-schools.

** Hibiki's hair, bandana, clothing, and cluelessness with girls (but not his size) are all reminiscent of a previous anime character [[RanmaOneHalf named Hibiki.]]

Added DiffLines:
* SuggestiveCollision: Hibiki seems to have incredibly bad luck in that many of the times he falls over, he ends up crashing into one of the female pirates. One of his accidents even ends up sparking a huge protest by the less-tolerant pirates who didn't like the presence of men on board.

* LovableTraitor: [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Rabbat/Robert/Labbat]] ** It's ''Rabat''; WordOfGod says it's a contraction of "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin rat bastard]]" (his real name is revealed to be Sam later in the series)

* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Misty is understandably lonely considering she's been in stasis for a long time (the anime mentions she's 14 years old and was in stasis for 63 years) and is only survivor left from her family. When Hibiki runs after Dita, shes feels rejected, and tries to play off her wooing him as "being bored" and letting him go as to "not making enemies of Dita's shipmates/friends". But a few moments later, she [[TheWoobie begins to cry alone in the park bench]], and Meia tries to assure her that [[YouAreNotAlone she has friends here.]]

* CrowningMomentofHeartwarming: At the end of the final episode, as the shuttle is preparing to leave, Misty drags Dita up to Hibiki, insisting that Dita has "a favor" to ask of Hibiki. [[spoiler: What Dita wants is for Hibiki to call her "Dita" again, like he did when she came to his aid against the Big Bad.]] Hibiki develops a ''LuminescentBlush'', gets flustered, and turns her down flat, telling her he can't do that "for no reason." Hibiki trudges up the gangplank to the shuttle. Dita turns away with tears in her eyes, [[spoiler: and suddenly Hibiki shouts, "Dita!" Dita stops, turns around, and there's Hibiki grinning, with his hand outstretched toward her. "Come on!", he shouts. Dita blinks away her tears, shouts back "Yes!", and runs up the ramp to join Hibiki, jumping the final distance to grasp Hibiki's hand as the first opening song, Trust, swells and the credits roll.]]

** The rulers of Tarak and Mejale [[spoiler:were in on Earth's harvesting operation the whole time.]] It is later revealed that [[spoiler:they were not willing to lose any ''natural'' children (i.e. conceived and delivered the traditional way)of the rest of the original colonists -- the vast majority of whom still remain secretly secured in cryo-stasis, guarded over by the man who raised Hibiki -- hence, the reason for the genetically-engineered sons and daughters of Megere and Talark respectively, who were secretly considered to be merely {{ExpendableClone}}s, and thus sacrificeable to the Harvester Fleets of Earth.]]

* PerpetuallyShinyBodies: The fanservice-laden closing credits has the three main girls looking very shiny.

** Which, despite its sexual symbolism, has quite the degree of Narm to it.

* OffModel: Happens as early as the second episode. This ''is'' a Gonzo show, after all...all. To go into greater detail, the two animation teams that did the work for ''Vandread'' actually both did decent jobs in regards to the art quality, but their styles are different enough that it produces a very jarring effect when the two animation teams work on different scenes within the same episode, with one team producing art that looks a little more rugged and gritty with somewhat scratchy hatch lines and more 'realistic' chins, while the other producing art that is more accurate to the promotional material with cleaner lines and simpler face shapes.
