The final battle is basically Asou and Kanae trying to stop her from ending her story.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TomatoInTheMirror: [[spoiler: Mifuyu reveals that Asou was never "becoming" an Allegory, but that he was always one to begin with. This is later turned on her, ironically, by Asou.]]
* WriteWhatYouKnow: [[spoiler: Mifuyu based Asou's appearance, the main character in Hanako and the Teller of Allegory, off her late husband, and she admits that contrary to his backstory that he was the survivor and she was the victim, the reverse is true, just instead of a decapitation, it was a car accident.]]

* LostInTranslation: There is a possibility the title suffers from this (The correct translation may or may not be Hanako and the ''Teller'' of Allegory). {{Tokyopop}} is going to have [[SarcasmMode fun]] with the last couple of chapters.

* {{Expy}}: In appearance only. Asou looks exactly like an older version of [[Manga/MiraiNikki Yukiteru]], and Kanae looks a lot like Yuno with different hair.

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Horribly {{Subverted}}, the [[spoiler:leader of the suicide club]] tries to kill herself quickly and "beautifully" rather than be captured by the police, but instead dies slowly, painfully, and grotesquely, screaming "this isn't the way I wanted to die!"
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: After all the running around and exciting buildup, the ending of the [[spoiler: Woman in the Gap]] chapter is just... weird.
