Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The show revolves around the idea of a single strange attack [[spoiler: that began as a hoax]] that gets picked up by the media, incidents increase, and rapidly becomes a national crisis. As WebVideo/SuperEyepatchWolf points out, this ends up bearing an eerie resemblance to reports of clown attacks in 2016.

* BlackComedy: The show occasionally has tones of this trope, but [[spoiler: episode 8, "Happy Family Planning," takes the cake.]]

** The series revolves around a young boy coming to those who are desparate and screwing badly with their lives and thereby rendering their previous worries mostly moot, to the point of putting them at mortal danger, who’s earned the moniker ‘[[Literature/{{Murderess}} Ha...]]’ er, ‘Bat Lad’.

Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Part of being an adult means accepting the world as it is rather than hiding behind [[{{Escapism}} fantasy]] or [[NeverMyFault denial]]. Are these themes subtle? No. Were (and are) they relevant? EVEN MORE SO with the increased use of Social Media and sheer ease of access to comforting fantasies through the internet since 2004.

* BrokenAesop: The show asks the main characters to face up to their problems, even as it goes to great pains to convey that most of them are shown to have nowhere and no one to turn to for support in doing so.
** It's debatable, but Tsukiko Sagi may in fact have a legitimate mental illness, in which case her aesop could be completely broken.
** Harumi Chono, in real life, would have long since been institutionalized. No therapist worth their salt is going to leave a patient with [[spoiler: dissociative identity disorder]] to [[spoiler: prostitute herself.]] There are thousands of ways that could go wrong and cause undue harm and trauma to the patient, exacerbating their condition.

** It's debatable, but Tsukiko Sagi may in fact have a legitimate mental illness, in such as schizophrenia. In which case case, she might very well be ''unable'' to understand her aesop could be completely broken.delusions aren't real, or at the very least unable to do so without professional help.

No therapist worth their salt is going to leave would allow a patient with [[spoiler: dissociative identity disorder]] to [[spoiler: prostitute herself.]] There are thousands of ways that could go wrong and cause undue harm and trauma to the patient, potentially exacerbating their condition.

Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: Many of the characters can fall under this.
** Tsukiko's seemingly constant lifeless stare.
** Harumi Chono's alter-ego Maria, who often sports a deranged, puppet-like grin.
** Masami Hirukawa, a short, stout man with a gaping huge mouth and large lips to boot.
** Akio Kawazu, who's wild-eyed, perverted grin almost comes across as froglike at times.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Squick}}: Hirukawa taking pictures of ''his own daughter undressing in her bedroom'' with a hidden camera; Indeed, anybody else would've probably also thrown up after discovering something so vile about one of their own parents.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: If you strip away the fantastic/disturbing elements, you can take a number of these away from the series. Among them are, [[spoiler:"Don't let lies spiral out of control"]], [[spoiler:"Take responsibility for your own actions and faults"]], [[spoiler:"Don't ever be afraid to face the truth"]], and especially, [[spoiler:"Just because something is comforting or seems to help doesn't mean it's not destructive."]]
