The first four ''Yarudora'' games are arranged in a FourSeasons motif (their stories take place during the time frame of one season: ''Double Cast'' is the Summer title, ''Kisetsu o Dakishimete'' the Spring one, ''Sampaguita'' the Autumn one, and ''Yukiwari no Hana'' the Winter one). They also have a recurrent theme of the game's heroine suffering IdentityAmnesia, leading the protagonist to help her in her QuestForIdentity.

* AudioAdaptation: All of the four PS1 games have a Drama CD each. Depending on the game, it can just focus on a part of the storyline ([[spoiler:''Double Cast'']]), be a recap of the whole storyline [[CuttingOffTheBranches following a specific Ending]] ([[spoiler:''Sampaguita'']]), or be a [[SpinOff side-story]] [[TimeSkip chronologically taking place after the storyline]] ([[spoiler:''Kisetsu o Dakishimete'']]).

\nAlso compare to ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'', which takes the idea of an Interactive Anime to its obvious conclusion(As well as having two DLC which play out exactly like Yarudora, as well)..

The games are made in nearly Full Anime (with a few still images sprinkled in), with the animation done courtesy of ProductionIG. Each game has a different art style, depending on the chara designer and teams which worked on a specific title.
