* BittersweetEnding: The Coppelions managed to stop the Sarcophagus from blowing up and causing a second nuclear incident. [[spoiler:But Ibara is dying from her own Coppelion nature and although they managed to save her, she's now a normal human with no immunity from radiation which means she has to be separated from her friends. She can still visit them in hazmat suit, at least.]]


* TooSoon: Due to the 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, the anime adaptation was put on hold before being revived in 2013.
** Even with 2 years passing the adaption seems to avoid using words like "nuclear" instead just referring to an "incident"

* CosyCatastrophe: It's ''not'' exactly cosy-- the main characters are in a rescue mission to pin-point the location of survivors so the military can extract them. The survivors are often found clinging to dear life, in which case the girls administer Aether (read: [[{{VideoGame/Fallout}} RadX]]) to them to buy them just a little time before extraction. Aside from this rather bleak mission, post-apocalypse Tokyo is a nice place... if you're immune to radiation.
** [[spoiler:The reason why there are survivors in Tokyo is that an [[TheAtoner atoning genius]] has been delivering food to them. However, when the story starts, the delivery has not been appearing for a week, driving the survivors to desperation and unraveling their social structure.]]

Just look at Chernobyl[[/note]].
