Added DiffLines:

** Candy herself. In earlier episodes, it seemed easy to dismiss her doormat-like behavior (her tolerance of people constantly asking her to do things, the way that all her classmates were so EasilyForgiven after Castiel's arc, etc.) as simply an attempt to avoid drama and make her bland enough that she could function as the player character and therefore anyone could project their own personality onto her. However, more recent episodes have begun to establish her as a bit of a people pleaser and imply that she has low self-esteem (Patrick, the art teacher, even mentions to Philip that she could use more confidence after knowing her for only two days) which could be why she seems so unwilling to stand up for herself.


Added DiffLines:

** Many fans were annoyed at Philip's overprotective behavior (screaming at your love interest and grounding your Candy for a month after she sneaks out) in Episode 28, some going as far as to call him abusive. In Episode 30, though, he seems to regret taking out his anger at your Candy on your boyfriend and even apologizes to him offscreen, which got the hate to mostly die down.


Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Mild example: since the game is written and takes place in France, where smoking is comparatively more accepted than in North America, the game never portrays Castiel's smoking habit to be a bad thing (the fact that he hangs out in the basement to smoke is just supposed to symbolize his rebellious nature.) Some American players, however, are slightly perturbed by this, and have expressed a desire for him to quit (though many of them actually find it attractive, and most don't care at all.)

** '''Ms. Delanay. Full Stop.''' Take note that '''no'''reasonable scientist (let alone teacher) would leave a bunch of high schoolers to mess with dangerous chemicals '''unsupervised'''. The worst part is her actually telling them to start the experiment instead of telling them to not touch anything until she got back.

** Priya. She was not well-received by most of the fanbase not just because of the possibility that she might be yet another potential rival, but also because her first appearance is very reminiscent of a bad fanfic with a MarySue OC protagonist. Another side, however, simply doesn't care much about her and simply believe that she's a genuine NiceGirl who just happened to befriend some of the dateable guys, and has no romantic interest in any of them.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In her first episode in the game, [[Mary Sue Priya comes out from nowhere with basically no backstory, easily makes friends with all of the guys without much complains or problems, and overall seems to be good at everything.]] If anything, it's like an introducton of a very bad fanfic with a MarySue protagonist. Although to be fair, it was probably intentional.



** Priya was at first disliked due to her appearance being reminiscent to that of a bad fanfic with a MarySue OC, and how she charms all the boys with ease. However, the hate for her quickly died down in Episode 28 where, after having a heart-to-heart with her, she reveals she isn't interested in any of the boys. In fact, she seems more interested in going against [[TheScrappy Amber]], which got her into the graces of some fans.

** In Episode 29 in Kentin's path, he outright admits that he ''did'' like him. However, he came to terms that it was hopeless that his feelings would be [[IncompatibleOrientation reciprocated]], and wishes both the Candy and Kentin good fortune.

Added DiffLines:

** The Candy herself can be subject to this. Though the majority agree that she's a kind girl, a number of people are irritated and frustrated with how stupid her decisions can get, as well as suffering from obliviousness from the boy's feelings, even if it's obvious. Episode 29 in Nathaniel's path also made her appear to want needless melodrama with Melody by not doing much to dissuade Peggy with taking photos of Melody without her permission for their assignment, which was to represent the vice of [[GreenEyedMonster envy]].
* BrokenBase: Some of the decisions that the Candy makes can fall on this. Particularly starting from Episode 29, some players are angry and frustrated with Candy's reaction of wanting a secret relationship with the boy, and feel she's purposely hurting him. However, others argue that her line of reasoning is sound considering she's grounded, and her father was already angry at the boy in Episode 28.
** Some also feel from that same episode that it's no longer My Candy Love, but ''Candy's'' Love. From the above point, the decisions she makes are jarring (even stupid) to some people, and they feel alienated by it. Because they no longer are playing a game where their decisions really matter since she makes rather important ones for herself, independently (i.e. making the relationship with her and her boy of choice a secret).
** Peggy's action of taking photos of Melody without her permission in Episode 29 on Nathaniel's path. Some are appalled at Candy not really doing anything to dissuading Peggy for her action, and, even if they were annoyed by Melody's flirtations with Nathaniel, still found this a KickTheDog moment. They also add that Melody was feeling what the Candy felt towards Priya, and so Candy should know better and empathize. Others however have become very uncaring towards Melody for her petty behaviour to the Candy, and felt that even after the heart-to-heart talk they both had, she still tries to rush after Nathaniel and seems to forget all about the friendship. Thus feeling that her desperation in pursuing is the thing that's appalling as she doesn't seem to care about staying friends. Especially since she doesn't seem to take Nathaniel's feelings into part, and with Candy and Priya, they at least come to a complete understanding with Priya backing away.

*** As of Episode 28, the latter seems to be correct, as Priya makes it clear to you she's not interested in the boy of your interest, and she seems more interested in butting heads with [[AlphaBitch Amber]]. She could be considered RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap for some.

Added DiffLines:

*** Sadly, if you pursue Nathaniel, her passive-aggression is not only worse, but she actively gets in the way between you and Nathaniel, which frustrates a number of players.

Added DiffLines:

** Occasionally, the candy herself can cause a rift thanks to some of her actions being considered [[WhatAnIdiot idiotic]] by some and understandable by others. The problem basically boils down to the fact that although your candy is YOUR avatar, she is still following a story and thus the player does not have full, 100% complete control over her actions. This leads to irritation when the story gives incentive to take an action the player normally wouldn't do (such as give into Amber's demands for an illustration) and massive amounts of anger when the story forces the candy to do something the player did not want them to do (see the ending of episode 29).

* HarsherInHindsight: Ms. Delaney insulting Armin and looking at Nathaniel "like he was the dumbest person in the room" was already treated like KickTheDog moments in-universe. But they get a LOT more unsettling when you realize (or worse, experience for yourself) that there are real teachers like that.



* TheScrappy: Amber for being an AlphaBitch. And any rival for the guys won't be very well liked by the guy's fanbase. Melody used to be safe from this but episode 23 got her some hate for her [[ClingyJealousGirl petty reaction]] to seeing you come to school with Amber and Nathaniel (plus her overall lack of awareness for what was REALLY going on). To be fair, Nina can be scary and Debrah appears to be sociopathic (and is also hated by more than Castiel fangirls due in part to what she does to your candy and Nathaniel).
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Kentin wasn't well-liked at first (his 'Ken' profile has a two star rating compared to the others who are at least 4 stars or more). But since he's come back, opinions on him have been much more favorable (his new profile has 4 and a half stars).

** Melody started out well-liked for being sweet and friendly. But once she started becoming petty and passive-aggressive towards you out of [[ClingyJealousGirl jealousy]] (and hypocritcally called you out for 'not knowing Nathaniel that well' when she didn't know him that well either), she drew the fandom's ire. However a little action from your candy as well as a sweet heart-to-heart got Melody to go back to how she was before.
