Added DiffLines:
* {{Narm}}: The animated adaptation overall manages to convey hauntingly the horrors of war and atomic warfare... then Gen starts talking about the ''sorrounding debris and devastation'' rather casually. Also, his mother's [[OffModel giraffe neck]].

* ValuesDissonance: Several. For example, Gen's father hits him and his brothers often as a means of discipline, and while it may be somewhat cringe worthy for modern audience, it's made clear that he loves his family and the practice was more acceptable then than now. To some, it may also be how ''hard'' Gen's father hits them.

*** Maybe not that, though. In-story it is very much treated as a horrible thing done to her, just a step below rape and a [[MoralEventHorizon moral event horizon]] for their asshole teachers, as the theft-allegation was just a convenient excuse to punish Daikichi through his children. When Daikichi finally learns what happened, he understandably goes berserk as a result.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Averted! Neither the Japanese nor the Americans look very good.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Averted! Neither the Japanese nor the Americans look very good. Any insults directed towards the "Yankees" are probably done intentionally -- it ''is'' written in the perspective of the Japanese -- and it's not like the characters don't show any contempt towards their own country as well.

Cut for having no context; if anyone wants to re-add, discuss it here first.
* {{Complete Monster}}: Block chairman Samejima and his son Ryukichi, Gen and Eiko's teachers (one of them looks like Adolf Hitler, to boot).

** While the editor's words are technically true—the effects of a Fukushima-style disaster is functionally like a "dirty nuke," or radiological weapon—the implication that destroying or damaging a nuclear reactor would cause it to "function as a nuclear weapon" (like the type that was used on Hiroshima) is, sadly, YouFailNuclearPhysicsForever.
