YMMV: Deep Love
- Anvilicious: Pao No Monogatari is very much this. It takes time out during each chapter to spell out exactly what the message is and that's about the weaker members of society being left behind by those more fortunate and animal cruelty.
- Tearjerker: The ending and Ayu getting her Christmas present.
- True Art Is Angsty: Hey, is that something positive happening for somebody? Oh, wait, massive backfire. Nothing goes right for anybody and the world is a horrible, horrible place.
- The Woobie: Yoshiyuki and Reina.
- Pao in his manga.
