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.
Narm: Through the Years and Far Away to some, thanks to the Engrish.
Spiritual Licensee: This is perhaps one of the best adaptation of Joe Halderman's The Forever War in existence, although some differences (e.g. the genders are flipped) exist. Even the aliens are called Tarsians.
