* {{Expy}}: A minor character Oda bears strong resemblance to [[NaruTaru another Kitoh's character]] [[AlphaBitch Aki Honda]], though is nowhere as cruel. Also, one of her 'underlings' seems to be just a clone of Hiroka from Aki's GirlPosse.

Some describe it as "like ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]'', but even [[UpToEleven more depressing]], to the extent of making ''Evangelion'' look like ''{{Carebears}}''."

* {{Deconstruction}}: When the collateral damage and mass casualties caused by the robot battles are made so alarmingly clear, not to mention the trauma that the pilots go through, you can hardly call this a SuperRobot series. It's practically the anti-''GurrenLagann''!

* {{Yakuza}}: In the anime, some of them show up, since TeamMom Tanaka [[spoiler: was previously married to a mid-ranked Yakuza boss named Ichirou who was murdered some years ago]]. They mainly play a role in protecting and looking after the kids... in particular [[spoiler: Jun Ushiro, who is [[YakuzaPrince the son of Ichirou and Misumi]], though he doesn't know it at first.]]

* KillEmAll: To the point where it feels like Kitoh [[strike: is trying]] has managed to out-Tomino [[YoshiyukiTomino Tomino]] himself. The estimated death count at the series conclusion is about [[spoiler:328 trillion human lives. Of course, being that an entire Universe is destroyed each time, it's actually higher if you consider the possibility of life on other planets.]] Which puts the overall death count higher than that in Tomino's notorious ''SpaceRunawayIdeon''.

* TitleDrop: Dropped at the end of chapter 55 of the manga. In the anime, the title tends to work itself into important conversations, though given the title literally translates to "ours", that's not hard to do.

* CallBack: The final pilot in the anime thinks back to everyone else's battles, such as when he's looking for inspiration on tactics to use.

to:

* CallBack: BreatherEpisode: Most of the penultimate volume, we revisit every previous pilot's story arcs and not a single mecha appears. It even has RomanticComedy elements! [[spoiler:To lull you into a false sense of security for when one of the main characters get assassinated.]]

''Bokurano'' (literally, "''Ours''") is an 11-volume manga written by Creator/MohiroKitoh, the creator of the infamous {{Mons}} {{Deconstruction}} ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' (aka ''Shadow Star''), and is essentially about a group of middle-school children who are contracted into a "game" where they pilot a HumongousMecha in order to save their world from destruction. The anime adaptation began airing in the spring season of 2007 and ran for 24 episodes. There is also a five-volume light novel series called ''Bokurano: Alternative'', which, as its title suggests, is an AlternateUniverse take on the manga's storyline that places the characters in somewhat different circumstances.
