* AcceptableReligiousTargets: Evangelical Christians.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Some readers see Kimiko as an EvilutionaryBiologist. Others think more kindly of her.
* AssPull: Transmuting the entire natural world into computronium actually makes plants healthier and grow better. Well ''that'' sure is convenient.
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Is Kimiko Ross a well crafted and interesting heroine or a bad case of the author projecting? With the lengthy name, suspiciously [[OtakuSurrogate tomboyish traits]], and the central importance of the protagonist have led some to call Mary Sue. Having her being an extremely attractive, transhuman cyborg probably [[AuthorAppeal doesn't help either]]. The fact that she's a clearly unhinged ideologue who doesn't care if mankind lives or dies is either a good counterpoint to this that makes her flawed or it just makes her creepier. In the actual comic, reality tends to bend to fit her opinions and prejudices and is, for many, the nail in the coffin.
