This fanfic provides examples of:
- Childhood Friend Romance
- Fix Fic
- I Will Protect Her: Hiro to Tsubaki. So much so that he absolutely flips out upon witnessing her rape at the hands of the Omekatas.
- These Hands Have Killed: Hiro, following the above incident. In all fairness, most people would react the same way after killing another human being, let alone a child.
