- Ending Aversion: Many western fans were outraged that the series ends with Dale marrying a grown up Latina. These fans hated the ending since they originally enjoyed the series for a being a cute story of a hero bonding with a little girl he sees as his adopted daughter but got disgusted that it turned into a Wife Husbandry story where Latina suddenly says she never saw Dale as a father figure but as a love interest. The novel's handling of this development— that nobody treats Dale as Latina's primary caretaker even when young, Dale becoming immortal to match her lifespan and Latina being much older than she looks— did little to please these fans.

- Moe: All the children, but especially Latina.
- Spiritual Successor: The series in the West has been negatively compared to Bunny Drop, a manga similarly about a man adopting and raising an orphan girl (who in this case is his six year old aunt and his grandfather's love child) but ends with the now teenage girl planning to marry her adopted father after learning they're not actually related.
- Tastes Like Diabetes: Everything about Latina can be this.
