Warning: spoilers may not be as carefully marked as the main page.

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The brief flashback in the first episode of Chester with (presumably) an old girlfriend comes off as this, since nothing more is made of it. He doesn't even mention it to anybody.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Yuko Tanabe, due to her tragic backstory as listed in Tear Jerker.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Yuko Tanabe, played by The Cutie Kiki Sukezane.

  • Genius Bonus: Luz standing in the river in a white dress seeing the faces of her twins in the water is reminiscent of the tale of La Llorona. Luz doesn't fit the story of a woman who loses her children, drowns herself, then comes back for vengeance, but Yuko does.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Yuko, due to her tragic backstory as listed in Tear Jerker.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • The death of the twins. Luz doesn't take it well and eventually leaves the camp with her father.
    • Henry hugging her goodbye which further cemented that she finally won him over.
    • Yuko's past:
      • She's thrown out for being pregnant when she marries Furuya and knows no one else in the US.
      • A year later she's homeless living in what appears to be the junkyard of an army base stealing scraps for herself and her baby.
      • She tries to feed him but he starts crying and she realizes that she has to give him up.
      • Her guilt leaving her child with the nuns.
      • She then commits suicide by filling her baby sling with rocks and throwing herself off a bridge.

    • Ken getting shot as well as Amy's reaction.
    • Henry's death.
    • The vision or dream in which Chester speaks with Henry on the Taro following his death, Henry telling him why he became a fisherman.
    • Yamato speaking with an old friend in the afterlife, who tells him about his life in Hiroshima. The savvy viewer can probably tell what's coming, but The Reveal itself is something else: the camera slowly revealing his entire extended family (including his young great-grandchild) standing behind him.
  • Uncanny Valley: During an obon festival held in the camp, Yuko wears a jovially smiling mask to murder the doctor.

How well does it match the trope?
