* ArmorIsUseless: The Jacket suits are necessary for soldiers to be able to wield weapons that have a chance of damaging individual mimics. They're completely useless for taking a hit, though.

There's one thing worse than dying. It's coming back to do it again and again. When the alien Mimics invade, Keiji Kiriya is just one of many raw recruits shoved into a suit of battle armor and sent out to kill. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to find himself reborn each morning to fight and die again and again. Just before his first death though, he gets to meet with a legendary soldier: Rita Vrataski, the "Full Metal Bitch", whom he will try to imitate and learn from in every iteration. Is the Bitch the key to Keiji's escape, or to his final death?

Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: A nice thing about the Manga is that there is accurate portrayals of military life. PT that seems like an excessive punishment, very fussy commanders when it comes to gear maintainence, and one very nice touch is when Keiji is confronted in the cafeteria. The guy who assaults him is wearing dogtags with rubber silencers wrapped around the tags. Those are real things that started being made after Vietnam because the sound of jingling dogtags gave away American soldiers' positions.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In-Universe. Some consider Keiji NewMeat that turned out to be humanity's greatest warrior. Others consider him an unstoppable monster who cares nothing for his allies and a KarmaHoudini who gets away with [[spoiler:''murdering'' humanity's greatest warrior]] because [[AndTheAdventureContinues the war goes on]] and he's too valuable to execute.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Keiji manages to break out of the loop, but Rita dies just as they were forming a relationship, and his exploits have resulted in him being ostracized by his comrades, as well as having to coldly "sacrifice" all of his squad members. Plus, the war and the fate of humanity is now on his shoulders.]]

* InnocentAliens: Ruthlessly subverted in the narration of "what probably happened". [[spoiler:The aliens decide to terraform the Earth without checking to see if it's inhabited by intelligent life, because sending a radio signal and waiting 80 years for a reply would take too long. Worse, even if the Earth ''is'' inhabited by intelligent life, the aliens decide that they should ecoform the planet anyway, reasoning that civilization is always built on the sacrifice of the natural world, so xenocide is no big deal. Though there was a faction of the aliens that opposed the ecoforming on ethical grounds, the ruling government ignored their protests and went ahead with the plan anyway.]]
