*** Other characters performed their fair share of atrocities, yet Akon no Suke is the only one we know of who is forced to live through something on the the level of the loop of coming to the temple, killing herself, becoming the healer, realizing the truth, and wait to be killed by her past self. The situation does indeed come off as being a tract against suicide that ended up being {{Disproportionate Retribution}}.

* {{Laser Guided Karma}}: In the fittingly named ''Karma'', [[spoiler: {{Smug Snake}} Akanemaru is killed in a fire just after exposing Gao's past, which led to Gao's remaining arm being chopped off. The kicker is that Akanemaru will never again be reborn as a human.]]

* SceneryPorn: This being OsamuTezuka, there are tons of splash pages devoted to showing off gorgeously rendered landscapes and architecture. Note that his humans are always simple and cartoony despite backgrounds that range from simplified props to photorealistic environments.

* BlackAndGrayMorality: Mostly grays, but you're more likely to find a totally evil character than a perfectly good character. Gao, for instance, is one of the more purely good protagonists... if not for his start as an indiscriminate thief and mass murderer. It is notable that killing seems to be considered acceptable if one does it to survive, as it is no different than hunting (one of the themes, especially in Gao's book ''Karma,'' is that all life is equal).

** Benta and Obu from Civil War could qualify as purely good characters since the worst thing Benta ever does is steal an unclaimed but precious comb, and Obu never commits any crime whatsoever.
*** Well Benta did kill Minamoto Yoshitsune, but he had very a good reason for it.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Tezuka had planned for there to be at least one more installment of the series. Many people, including Frederick Schodt, believed that because each subsequent chapter took place closer to the present day than the last one (all new "past" chapters would take place after the previous one, all new "future" chapters would take place before the previous one) that the very last chapter would take place in the present day (or at least in the year it was published). However, Tezuka never got that far. This sequence is broken by the last installment--"Sun"--where the past installment takes place before the previous one ("Civil War" in this case.) Sun also takes places in both the past and present, which suggests it may have been intended as an end-piece for the series.

* DoingintheScientist: Earlier stories implied that most supernatural phenomena and creatures seem by people were merely exotic or extraterrestrial beings that humans wrongly assumpted to be supernatural. Later stories, however, presented actual youkai.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Tezuka intended to close the series with an arc that took place in the present and somehow tied all the series' motifs together. However, he died well before reaching that point, leaving behind only the synopsis for a storyline, ''Earth,'' which was to take place in Japanese-occupied Shanghai, 1938.
