These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Episode 24, too. You've had me waiting all these years. You're late again. Cue Kobato hugging Fujimoto tearfully while playing Ashita Kuru Hi in the background. But that's more of a case of YMMV.
Values Dissonance: At the end of the anime, both Fujimoto and Kobato push Sayaka to go back to Okiura. This can seem heartwarming when you don't think too much about it, but on later reflection it seems very strange that they would want her to go back to someone who was openly emotionally abusive, even if he did it because he thought it would be better than if it were his father.
