* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids
** The Norwegian translation averts this by releasing it in a "Comics for adults" imprint, even though the foreword mentions it being in a [[ShonenJump magazine for young teens]].

* DirtyCoward: The principal at Gen and Eiko's school. We're only given a brief glimpse of him in the manga, but what we see isn't very flattering. He's shown to be a spineless and weak-willed man who pretty much lets the militarist hacks posing as teachers pull any crap whatsoever at the school, including beating and stripping students half-naked over a spurious theft-allegation. He only - half-heartedly - berates Kijima and Numata, Gen and Eiko's teachers, after the two of them (as well Ryukichi, who made the bogus allegation in the first place) have had the shit beaten out of them by an enraged Daikichi over the stripping and humiliation of his daughter Eiko.

* {{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.

** Eiko's strip searching would count as well.

* 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.
