  • The Disease That Shall Not Be Named: Averted, Satsuki's illness is mentioned to be lung cancer.
  • Downer Ending: Satsuki passes away in the end
  • Ill Girl: Satsuki, who is suffering from lung cancer, and is only given a few months to live.
  • Second-Person Narration: The story is told with Ryuuko as the viewpoint character.
  • The Topic of Cancer: One line mentioned that Satsuki smoked, which can be inferred to be why she has lung cancer.
  • Shown Their Work: The effects of cancer and its treatments are portrayed rather accurately, as tiredness and fatigue are common side effects of chemotherapy and cancer can (and does) have remissions and relapses.
