* AlternateSelf: Possibly. In a MindScrew sequence late in the film, Mikako sees another version of herself, one who is older and has a wedding band. Whether this is a self-induced hallucination out of her anguish, a psychic attack from the tarsians or something else is left unanswered.

* NoEnding: The anime is open-ended and only subtly implies that Mikako and Noboru are eventually reunited. Conversely, the manga adaptation adds some resolution.

Middle-school student Nagamine Mikako and her friend Noboru had looked forward to attending high school together, but when humanity declared war on an alien force known as the Tarsians in 2046, she was drafted by the UN Space Army to serve as a [[HumongousMecha Tracer]] pilot in a task force assigned to the spaceship ''Lysithea''. Mikako leaves Noboru behind on Earth as the UN Forces pursue the Tarsians deeper into space. During their separation, she communicates with Noboru via email -- but as the fleet travels farther from the Earth, the transmission time grows increasingly longer, until eventually Noboru must wait ''years'' for any word that Mikako is even still alive.
