* DisproportionateRetribution: In ''Strange Beings'', Akon no Suke and her [[InnocentBystander completely innocent]] [[TrueCompanions retainer]] are sentenced to [[YearInsideHourOutside several decades]] of imprisonment in an [[TailorMadePrison inescapable mountain temple]] adrift in time and space, caring for sick and injured humans and monsters for killing an elderly nun who... wait for it... is the future version of the Samurai after spending decades of imprisonment for killing her older self, essentially commiting suicide. Furthering the MoralDissonance is that her younger self did so to avoid her future nun-self from saving the life of her EvilOverlord father so he would cease his warring and murdering. So basically the WarpedAesop is suicide is wrong, even if it saves countless lives, and decades of forced penance is not necessarily enough to balance your {{karma}}. The icing on this cake is that she came to realize her younger self would come and kill her, and [[FaceDeathWithDignity was powerless to stop her]].

Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Phoenix herself is ''all over the place'' in some of the books. In some she's a benevolent goddess [[GodOfGood guiding and protecting creation]]. Others she's a fierce guardian who will uphold a greater cosmic balance, [[GoodIsNotNice and crush you like a bug if you dare interfere in her work]]. Sometimes she's a cruel mistress of dispensing punishment, [[ForTheEvulz sometimes called, and uncalled for]].

Added DiffLines:

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: The Phoenix is continually reincarnating the Universe in the hopes mankind will finally be harmonious with itself and nature. She hopes mankind will use the life he is given wisely, and even more, eventually, [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence returning to her]]/[[PiecesOfGod becoming part of her]]. She never succeeds and never quits.


Added DiffLines:

* WeAreAsMayflies: How 99% of humanity sees itself, thus pursues the Phoenix for her fiery blood [[LivingForeverIsAwesome to cheat death]].

*** 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}}.

* 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.
