* AlwaysABiggerFish: The mutants talk a lot about how they are better than humanity for only letting the strong survive. They are eventually eaten by a giant monster, along with their own prey, a kind of mutant starfish.

* ChekhovsGunman: The offscreen thief in the first volume turns up a lot later. In a gruesome manner. [[spoiler: You see, he was partially inside the blast and so was half teleported... and survived on both ends.]]

[[spoiler: You see, he was partially inside the blast and so was half teleported... and survived on both ends. Surprisingly, he's one of the SURVIVORS of the story, as his arm and face kills Sekiya, and returns to the past where his body heals itself.]]

* HopeSpot: [[spoiler: Mount Fiji turns out not to be paradise, but an evil more Hellish place than RagnarokProofing: Flip-flopped. Nearly every last trace of human civilization has withered away, except a partially sunken ship in the wasteland outside]]. bed of former Tokyo Bay, and plastic garbage left behind where a river once was. However, several underground structures still remain, inclduing a subway and a ''functioning subway train and film projector.'' There's also the medication hidden in the mummy in the hospital morgue, which apparently survived however long its been there.

* AfterTheEnd * AnnoyingArrows: The bug monster is able to withstand a crossbow bolt that appears to be made from half a tree.
to:
* AfterTheEnd AfterTheEnd: If the film the mutants have is real, the End came about due to pollution and GaiasVengeance. * AnnoyingArrows: The bug monster is able to withstand a crossbow bolt that appears to be made from half a tree. Turns out there's a reason for that. [[spoiler: The monster is a psychic projection by Nakata. Thats also why its "nest" turned into sand when the kids tried to eat the plants]]

* ChildrenAreInnocent: Averted.
to:
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Averted. Or rather, the NEGATIVE aspects of innocence are played up a lot more. Things like naivite, helplessnes and panic. Its only by shedding their innocence that the kids learn to survive.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Hey, remember how in ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'', everything was pretty much okay until the kids themselves became evil? This series purports to show what would really happen if a bunch of kids were left by themselves outside of civilization. Nature fights back.

Nature fights back.Of course, unlike Lord Of the Flies, the kids have almost nothing to work with, aside from what was in the school itself. They sure arent in a tropical paradise with abundant greenery.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Hey, remember how in ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies'', everything FromBadToWorse: To an almost ridiculous degree, one disaster is followed by another one, and usually negates the positives achieved from the last one. * GaiasVengeance: If the film record is to be belived, the end of the world was pretty much okay until the kids themselves became evil? This series purports to show what would really happen if a bunch caused by nature striking back at humanity and its pollution and destruction. The mutants are apparently an offshoot of kids were left by themselves outside of civilization. Nature fights back.humanity that arose JustBeforeTheEnd.

* VoodooShark: [[spoiler: the explanation for the time travel is that Otomo planted a stick of dynamite in the teacher's lounge. They dynamite transported the school into the future when it exploded. Apparently it was magical dynamite.]]
to:
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Apparently, the end of the world would happen less than 30 years after the comic was published, as the lead mutant estimates that the human race went extinct "before the end of the 20th century". * VoodooShark: [[spoiler: the explanation for the time travel is that Otomo planted a stick of dynamite in the teacher's lounge. They dynamite transported the school into the future when it exploded. Apparently it was magical dynamite. It makes as much sense as anything else.]]

A very dark manga (original title: ''Hyoryu kyoshitsu'') by Creator/KazuoUmezu. It was first published in 1972 and later made into two different live-action movies: A [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0125201/ Japanese one]] in 1987, and an [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0163608/ American one]] in 1995.

Things quickly get bad, as the psychotic delivery man Sekiya takes the food hostage and begins killing students. Then one of the teachers has a psychotic break and wipes out the other adults, then begins killing students. And then... well, let's just say that Kazuo Umezu thinks of a great many ways to kill the students. It doesn't help when they find evidence that they've been teleported into the future and that the world has been completely turned to desert. Or that there does not seem to be any food other than what was teleported with them, and that everything in the world seems calculated to kill them.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Otomo's constantly escalating conflict with Sho presents him as a jerk, but some of his ideas, such as [[spoiler: feeding the strange mushrooms to Seikya instead of a fellow student to see if the children can eat them safely, or trying to kill Nagata after everyone discovers that his mind is making the insect monsters terrorizing the school,]] are about as effective as one could muster given the circumstances.
