* CrazyAwesome: Kasumi, being a bona fide ninja with all the related powers (somewhat) in a series with realistic fighting, can be either this or BunnyEarsLawyer.

* UnfortunateImplications: ''Hoo, boy...''
** The manga eventually introduces a transgender woman. No one refers to her by her preferred pronoun after this fact is revealed, and when Pedro pulls her pants down in front of them, the characters aren't upset with Pedro, but with ''her. '' The it's actually implied that she didn't mind being exposed in front of a bunch of strangers, which in itself opens up a whole new can of worms.
** Speaking of Pedro, many western fans have pointed out that his cartoonish appearance, when compared to the otherwise realistically drawn cast, along with being a literal rapist, is unsettlingly reminiscent of Blackface. Let's not forget that Pedro, a rapist, is also the manga's only major gay character...

** Pedro. The guy's an unrepentant rapist, has attempted to sexually assault Minoru three times, deludes himself into thinking that Minoru's being a {{Tsundere}} towards him, and later has the gall to consider Nana, a girl who has been Minoru's best friend for years and stuck with him through thick and thin, [[{{Hypocrite}} a "depraved stalker woman"]].

* JerkAssWoobie: Kevin Norton, once you learn his backstory.
* UnfortunateImplications:
** The only openly gay character in the series is a former rapist and makes sexual advances towards Minoru nearly every chance he gets, even when Minoru clearly isn't interested in him.
** Virtually all of the foreign characters, from the American soldiers stationed in Okinawa, to Samart, to the above-mentioned Filipino gay male, have ''very'' unfavorable depictions.
** There's also the first transgener character to appear, who is mainly treated as comic relief and whom suddenly stops being treated so nicely once the fact that she was born a he is revealed. The scene is depicted in a way that makes it seem like we should sympathize with the greater cast, who were "tricked" about her "true" gender, rather than the transgender woman who had her pants pulled down in front of a bunch of strangers.
** Let's also not forget the double-standard depictions of sexual assault. When it's a woman being assaulted, it's treated with the utmost seriousness--and rightfully so. When a ''man'' is both the perpetrator and victim however, it's comedy.
