* BlackSheep: ''Debut'' is considered the worst game of the franchise by some fans, since it focuses more on the senpai and the boys' character development instead of their romance with the heroine, and it's generally more angsty than the previous games. This is also why it's the only main game with no fandisc, and why ''All Star'' focuses on the seniors' routes instead.
