* BreakTheCutie[=/=]TraumaCongaLine: BreakTheCutie: Mutio. In a span of four episodes, she is nearly killed in battle, later finds out that one of her sisters was killed during that same battle, is sexually harassed by Verg while she's catatonic about said sister's death, loses her friend Red Spot to PoorCommunicationKills, is captured and beaten ''twice in a row'' by her own kind for saving the life of a human, is nearly killed again when Blue 6 bombards the Ghost Ship (where she is being held prisoner) with torpedoes, and survives only to find that her creator was killed by the very man that she saved.


Added DiffLines:

* CastingGag: In the English dub, Mutio's voice actress is Juliet Cesario, whose first name is the same as a [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet certain female character]] that's also known for being in a [[StarCrossedLovers forbidden romantic relationship]] with the member of a rival faction.

Added DiffLines:

* CatchPhrase: Zorndyke's "daughter" constantly recites a poem from the Manyoshu throughout the OVA. There are only two sentences she speaks that aren't lyrics from the poem, both of which are in her first scene.


* SoundtrackDissonance: It's debatable whether the rather discordant, wailing jazz soundtrack fits the tone of the series.

* SoundtrackDissonance: It's debatable whether the rather discordant, wailing jazz soundtrack fits the tone of the series. However, the more funky parts certainly do make the apocalypse ''[[Main/CozyCatastrophe feel way cooler.]]'' There are some toned down emotional pieces however.

Added DiffLines:

* ExtraLongEpisode: The first three episodes have a length of nearly 29 minutes, counting the credits sequences. However, the fourth and final episode is 40 minutes long.

Added DiffLines:

* MultinationalTeam: Blue Fleet consists of people from various countries around the world.
