* AdultFear: Daikichi and Kimie's lives are filled with this. Because of the war their children's lives are constantly at risk, their son Akira is sent to the countryside with the group evacuation to the midst of strangers, their other children are bullied and ostracized because of Daikichi's vocal opposition to the war... and their eldest son Koji volunteers for the IJN even though he's not yet old enough to be drafted. And then comes August 6th...

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The pilots of the "Enola Gay" are shown wearing thick flight jackets and leather helmets. This was not the typical getup for a B-29 crew, since the cabin of the bomber was heated and pressurized, making these jackets redundant.

Compare ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'', which is about the air raids and officially [[StudioGhibli Ghibli's]] most depressing movie.

* {{Author Avatar}}: Gen is essentially Keiji Nakazawa himself. Like his character, Nakazawa was seven years old when the bomb fell, and lost his entire family except for his mother and brother. He also eventually moved to Tokyo to pursue his career as an artist. The entire work is basically a fictionalized account of the author's youth.

* {{Beauty Is Never Tarnished}}: Averted. One of Gen's friends, a girl who wanted to be a dancer, had half her face burnt off.

* {{Doomed Hometown}}: [[ForegoneConclusion Hiroshima]]. It gets rebuilt, of course, but hope for a new beginning is enveloped by bitterness, as many surviving residents suspect--perhaps rightly--that the future Peace Park in the center of town is partly supported by land speculators buying up property which ''conveniently'' has no one left to claim ownership. ''And they sell this manga in the museum gift shop.''
* {{Earn Your Happy Ending}}: And holy '''FUCK''' does Gen deserve it.
