** Unlike ''Anime/{{Digimon}}'' or ''Anime/MonsterRancher'', the series doesn't assume that all the children who get cute monsters are [[ChildrenAreInnocent automatically good]]. Some of the children in ''Narutaru'' have the same misanthropic worldview as RealLife school shooters, and are only too keen to use their dragonets to hurt people they consider undesirable.
** Also unlike ''Digimon'', the military gets involved when the dragonets begin to threaten the population, and the kids are caught in the crossfire.

*** Subverted by the [[LyricalDissonance lyrical content]] of the opening... which seems to be a good metaphor for NaruTaru itself.

* HopeSpot: [[spoiler:The last chapter of the manga. Shiina seems to have recovered from her father's death and is living happily with her mother. She and her mother head out to visit Akira in hospital... only for an angry mob to shoot up her mother's car, Akira to fall out of the hospital window in an apparent suicide, Takeo and Hoshimaru to be killed by a gang of thugs--after which Shiina and Mamiko initiate TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Afterwards, a heavily pregnant Shiina is shown walking sround the ruins of the buildings she used to know, unable to muster up the will to do anything more for the world.]] What was that about hope?

The story is told from the viewpoint of twelve-year-old Shiina Tamai, after she aquires the aforementioned dragonet, which she names Hoshimaru. Merely being in this creature's company inevitably draws other young people with dragonets to her. Shiina, unlike the others, is not telepathically linked to her dragonet, and Hoshimaru seems to have a will and personality of his own; meanwhile, not all of the other "dragon bearers" have good intentions, for Shiina ''or'' the world at large. While the anime is [[LeftHanging open-ended to say the least]], the manga leads towards an almost [[GainaxEnding Gainax-type ending]]. Unfortunately, the official English release of the manga was not only censored, but also incomplete, and it has about double the story of the anime.

* AlphaBitch: Aki Honda has to be one of the nastiest Alpha Bitches ''ever'' created. Akira also has her own personal Alpha Bitch in Hibiki Shimura, although her taunts seem tame in comparison to what Honda does. However this trope has dire and fatal consequences for Honda....
