Topical Tropes

YMMV: Fafner in the Azure: Dead Aggressor
  • Angst? What Angst?: Soushi invoked this trope in the second episode when his father died. That plus how abrupt the scene was made this troper do a double take to make sure his father really was gone.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Thank the Warsaw Philiharmonic Orchestra.
    • Pretty much any of the songs provided by angela count. They include:
      • "Fly me to the Sky", "Dead Set", and "Fortunes", image songs for the original series, Right of Left, and Heaven and Earth, respectively.
      • The opening theme to the original series, "Shangri-La", gratuitous tremolo aside.
      • The ending theme to the original series, "seperation" can be especialy tear jerking in the episodes that end with deaths.
      • The ending theme to Right of Left, "Peace of Mind", almost guaranteed to leave you in tears.
      • The ending theme to Heaven and Earth, "Soukyuu".
  • Evil Is Sexy: Yukie, dear sweet God Yukie!
  • Ho Yay: Kazuki and Soushi, arguably. Could be more of a Relationship Writing Fumble, since Kazuki is also quite clearly shown to have a thing for Maya...
    • ...or not given that not only does Maya repeatedly state that she is not the one Kazuki wants, but also that the series develops more and more towards Kazuki and Soushi as a potential item...
    • Oh, and then there is the movie.
    • Not to mention the drama CDs where they had these two brood over their feelings for each other.
    • Don't forget official art, which is very, VERY suggestive.
    • Basically, the only thing keeping them from being "official" official is that it hasn't been explicitly stated (Maya's above comment notwithstanding). It's all there on the screen, it's just lacking the words.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: Tatsumiya Island uses a lot of Norse mythology for its suit and weapons nomenclature, including the eponymous Fafner, Lindwurm, Fenrir, and Garm, but it's also perfectly willing to borrow from Greek (Medusa, Aegis, Titan), French (Durandal), and Hebrew (Solomon). The UN variants are named for the Greek words Megatherion (Great beast) and Gnosis (revealed knowledge), and the city of Babylon. The Festum cores are named Mir (Russian for peace/world).
