- Audience-Alienating Premise: Depicting a country associated with terrorism in such a cute manner.
- Cult Classic: Even more-so its short lived sequel.

- Harsher in Hindsight: As Meriken beats the hell out of Afganisu-tan, Osama bin Kitty is shown to be taking refuge beside Pakisu-tan, which pretends to know nothing of it.
- Moe: Every character.
- The Woobie: The eponymous character goes through so much it makes you want to hug the actual country. If it wasn’t bigger than your arms could stretch, of course.
