* AdaptationDisplacement: Though the series is not well-known today, even lesser-known is the serial comic by Bruce Wagner (who wrote both the comic and the TV series).
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Original soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto and a lot of fine retro music.
* HoYay: Harry and Kreutzer. {{Lampshaded}} numerous times.
-->'''Kreutzer''': "Harry! You're gonna make me fall in love with you!"
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Wagner described the series as "a tone poem" - it doesn't have so much a plot as a series of circumstances that characters are exposed to, interact with, and are shaped by.
