** In the novel, when Saki and Satoru end up making love after [[spoiler: failing to retrieve Maria and Mamoru after they ran away from the village]], Saki makes the realization that Satoru is actually thinking of [[spoiler: Shun]] while doing it, and that she's thinking the same as well. Talk about simultaneously unsettling and depressing.

* SpaceAmish/EnforcedTechnologyLevels: Though not in space, the people of Kamisu 66 follow a simple lifestyle and although they have plenty of understanding of modern technology, including the ability to generate electricity with waterwheels, they actively avoid the use of technological contraptions in favour of their innate PK powers. Flashbacks imply that they used to be more lenient with technology but changed their minds about it for some reason.

* InterruptedIntimacy: In episode 5, Saki and Satoru end up engaging in sexual foreplay after getting captured. Upon remembering that humans in their time have been genetically conditioned to use sex as a stress response like Bonobos do, Saki puts it to a halt, resolving that "we're not monkeys".

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: This is one of the themes of the show. For example, Kamisu 66 only gives full human rights to indviduals who are over 17 years old, [[spoiler:while children under it can be disposed for any reason]]. The Akki and Gouma are perceived as inhuman monsters in spite of their very human origins. And the Bakenezumi are classified as animals in spite of their human-like intelligence and industrialised society because they don't have any psychic powers.
