* GreenAesop

to:

* GreenAesopGreenAesop: Given the enemies and theme, the characters will occasionally discuss subjects such as man's effect on the environment and the importance of nature.



* HumanResources: In episode 19, Kaede and Murakumo turn an entire town's worth of people into mitama to [[spoiler:supplement Susana-Oh's growth.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Atlantis}}: An odd example; in this setting, the Japanese archipelago was all but uninhabitable several thousand years ago, and the first inhabitants created the Arigami to all but {{Terraform}} the place. Their current rampages are thus as much a ZerothLawRebellion as GaiasVengeance.


Added DiffLines:

* CulturalTranslation: The CreatureHunterOrganization would be more appropriately translated as the "National Land Management Bureau" or NLMB - the group's InUniverse reputation is a bunch of paper pushers, and the {{Masquerade}} keeps most from knowing about the Arigami until the final story arc. However, Western audiences expect a group of [[WhoYouGonnaCall monster hunters]] to have an appropriately grandiose name, hence their official title of "Terrestrial Administration Center" or TAC.

* DowntimeDowngrade: [[spoiler: Subplot of the Blue Seed 2 OVA series epilogue. In the opening of the first episode Momiji and Kusanagi's relationship is heavily on the rocks, with Momiji outwardly worrying that Kusanagi will break up with her. She even tries to ''sleep'' with him at one point and he rejects her, calling her a kid. The rest of the OVA deals with the subplot of Kusanagi trying to reconcile his feelings for Momiji. At the end of the second episode of the OVA it's clear that while Kusanagi will continue to date Momiji, the relationship itself is still in shaky ground. In the third episode of the OAV Momiji is afraid of Kusanagi seeing her naked (despite having tried to sleep with him two episodes prior), prompting ''Koume'' of all people to comment that their relationship hasn't progressed and will probably end soon. The ending to the entire OAV series does not resolve the subplot, with the inference being that Momiji and Kusanagi could still break up in the near future.]]

* AttackItsWeakPoint: As Aragami are only tiny little seeds possessing host bodies, the seeds have to be destroyed in order to actually kill the thing for good.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Aragami tend to make giant versions of their host for their attacks. This includes insects, a GiantSpider, mutated trees, jellyfish and more.



* LamePunReaction: Most of the TAC groans or even vacates the room from Kunikida's puns, though at least one got an ActuallyPrettyFunny response from them.



* TheRival:
** Kusanagi and Murakumo, both acting as protector to their chosen person. It takes until the final episodes before Kusanagi is strong enough to finally give Murakumo a run for this money. Before then, he could barely land a hit.
** Yaegashi thinks he's this to Kusanagi for Momiji.



* SpoilerOpening

to:

* SpoilerOpeningSoulJar: The mitama, which are essentially the physical form of the Aragami and house their spirits.
* SpoilerOpening: [[spoiler:If Kaede is supposed to be dead, why does she keep showing up in the opening credits?]]


Added DiffLines:

* TitleDrop: The term "blue seed" is used to refer to the Aragami's physical form for a few episodes before the term "mitama" becomes commonplace.

* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Kusanagi and Murakumo, though in the case of the later, it's dealing with rouge MonsterOfTheWeek types going against the master plan.

* PunchCatch: Murakumo pulls this on Kusanagi in episode 12.

* SacredFirstKiss

to:

* SacredFirstKissSacredFirstKiss: Kusanagi once had to revive Momiji with CPR. She spends the episode fretting if it counted as this or not.



* ShouldersOfDoom: Apparently, going all out with mitama powers gives you really big shoulder armor.

to:

* SmallGirlBigGun: KoumeKoume. Momiji also isn't afraid to fire a rocket launcher as needed.

* BedsheetLadder: Momiji uses one in episode 3 when she thinks she needs to make a break for it from Kunikida's place.



* HeadDesk: Done twice by Momiji by accident in episodes 3 and 4 as a result of bowing too deeply. The first time is on an actual desk, the second on the barrel of a bazooka where she knocks herself silly.



* ImprobableAge: Kunikida is in his 40s, Matsudaira is 32, and Kusanagi is 18

to:

* MysteriousProtector: Kusanagi
Kusanagi, at least after the first two episodes when he comes to accept that killing Momiji is something he just can't do.
* NoDressCode: Outfits in the office run the gamutgamut from reasonable suit and tie to Koume's pink jumpsuit.


Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: Normally not a concern of the Aragami, but episode 7 revolved around their attempts to gain more of the special ceramic needed to nullify Momiji's powers.


Added DiffLines:

* RecklessGunUsage: Yaegashi's first time with a rocket launcher. He can't find the safety and ends up doing the old "peer down the barrel" bit. It's something when Momiji is able to use it better than he can.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:Episode 13. Momiji comes to accept that she's in love with Kusanagi. Also, Kaede is revealed to be alive and having joined the Aragami.]]
