YMMV: This Ugly Yet Beautiful World
  • Les Yay: Between Those Two Girls during the Beach Episode. The Accidental Kiss mentioned above.
  • Moe: Hikari & to a lesser extent Akari until the Big Reveal that is..
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Takeru's transformation.
    • Hikari's nightmares and her evil side.
    • The intro to episode 12; the world is close to being destroyed, and it reflects that.
    Jennifer: Well, we've taken a lot of byroads, but this long, yet short, ugly, yet beautiful story is coming to an end. Thanks for watching it all the way through. Bye, now~
  • Stop Helping Me!: Hikari gets a big one of these from Mari during the beach episode.
  • Tear Jerker: There are moments where the series comes darn close by any criteria. For example: Takeru's childhood abandonment, the sheer desperation of Akira and Hikari in the final episodes, and the quasi Downer Ending.
  • The Woobie: Both Hikari & Akari when they are tortured by the reality of their true mission on Earth (to decide whether or not to destroy the planet).
