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.
YMMV: Tokyo Babylon
Crowning Moment of Funny: Near the beginning Hokuto rants about how Seishiro is a sick pervert who chases after young boys. THEN she proceeds to give him and Subaru her blessing. Why? Because she thought it was amusing.
Growing the Beard: The first chapter barely touches social themes and comes across as a comedy. However, the beard appears next chapter.
What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: The manga was aimed at teenagers in Japan but its themes are surprisingly dark. Before the end, the authors received lots of letters asking for a happy ending but this did not change the writers' plan.
