- Adaptational Curves: The women are twice as voluptuous in the anime.
- Adaptational Sexuality: Breast-grabbing doesn't occur all that often in the manga, nor does nipple sucking, nor lesbian fanservice.
- Hotter & Sexier: Way more nudity & fanservice in the anime than the manga. & in the manga, the women have very unfeminine faces.
- Comically Missing the Point: The entire point of the manga being a mockery of the genre & its audience was completely lost on the director.
- Beauty is Bad: The women with the largest breasts tend to be selfish bitches while the flat-chested women are victimized angels.
- Affectionate Parody: The manga is a mockery of boob-focused ecchi series like Eikan & Puni-Puni Poemi, making the anime adaptation ironic.
- Action Girl & Girls Need Role Models: Chifusa is not the typical female lead for this genre, which is a useless weakling piece of emotional baggage who only thinks about marriage, sex, & being as feminine as possible. Chifusa swears & fights, she thinks men are stupid pigs, she has no interest in romance. She lives to help defenceless women & put an end the the rule of breast.

I think this anime/manga would qualify for the "body horror" tag. Nearly all the girls who have their breasts shrunk are quite terrified and distressed about it. Justifiably so, since in addition to the mental anguish of having their bodies altered against their will, their entire social worth has also just been destroyed. They have been simultaneously mutilated AND relegated to a life of poverty and misery. Except for Kagefusa (who is actually shown shrinking a girl's breasts and is heavily implied to have raped her), we're not even told whether the other ninja girls deserve this fate. We're just expected to accept the idea that they're irredeemably evil simply because they oppose the main character. If one enjoys the breast expansion fetish, he can possibly ignore the suffering of these victims, because scenes of them shrinking are quickly followed by scenes of Chifusa growing. Until the point in the manga where Chifusa learns to shrink breasts without absorbing them. After that point, all we're left with is scenes of terrified girls who have just had their bodies altered and their entire lives ruined in an instant. Instead of a hero, Chifusa comes off as a monster since she doesn't even gain anything from using the breast-cutting technique instead of a regular old sword-chop. She could just as easily kill them and save them the humiliation of being considered sub-human, but she seems to revel in inflicting this lifelong torment.

We're just expected to accept the idea that they're irredeemably evil simply because they oppose the main character. It's less about opposing the character and more about not only doing absolutely nothing to oppose the ridiculous breast size-based caste system-like social order, but even perpetuating its existence by engaging in the Breast Hunts (or assisting superiors with them, like with Kagefusa and her attendants in Episode 1). They are all guilty by deliberate inaction at the very least. What Chifusa is doing with the forcible breast-shrinking is to force them into the shoes of the victims of the social order that they're perpetuating, in hopes that it would prove enlightening enough to them to learn the aesop and rise against said social order.

And what would they get in return even if they rise against the social order? Nothing. Their breasts will still remain shrunk, which makes the punishment more permanent and cold-hearted instead of temporary for the sake of teaching them a lesson. It goes against Chifusa's vow to return all of the breasts that she has shrunk to their owners.
