YMMV: Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
  • Fetish Retardant: Mirai's feet after they get covered in blisters. Eww.
    • . . . how was that intended to be sexy?!
  • Harsher in Hindsight:
    • So you think 8.0 was already bad by itself? On March 10, 2011, nature decided to lob Japan with one of the biggest earthquakes ever: 9.0.
    • Despite the greater magnitude, however, this one's epicenter was 130 kilometers offshore, and has thus had far fewer casualties (though still far too many). It'd be hard to have more — the earthquake in Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 explicitly had more casualties than any in Japan's history.
    • The quake happened far away from Tokyo and the aftershocks only caused minor damage, but even they were still the strongest earthquake to affect Tokyo since the one in 1923.
  • Nightmare Fuel: If you live where a major earthquake is expected, this could very well cause some mental discomfort.
  • Shocking Swerve: Mirai's descent into apparent hallucinations after Yuuki's sudden death was not particularly well-received by a portion of the viewership, as it marked a shift in tone from objective and realistic to either supernatural or subjective (Mirai's POV). Yuuki's death itself also appears to be a case of this at first; had Yuuki suffered a cerebral hemorrhage as suggested by fans, however, his condition would likely have deteriorated that quickly.
  • What an Idiot: Kento risks his life to save a mass-produced reconnaissance robot.
  • Woolseyism: In the Japanese version, Yuuki and Itsuki call Mirai the phone alien. The English dub tweaks it around to make it sound more alien-like, having them refer to her as the "Cell phonian," which is much more creative and sounds just like something a seven or eight year old kid would come up with. It's the same thing with "Frogworlder" and "Sergeant Snack Time."
