** 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.

** The whole situation with Deborah made your candy into one as you see her trying so hard to do the right thing only to be hated by almost everybody for it.

** The whole situation with Deborah made your candy into one as you see her trying so hard to do the right thing only to be hated by almost everybody for it. Later episodes only make this worse, as she is established as having low self confidence to the point she was worried a girl who had been at the school only a few days would steal the affections of boys she had known for ages. Not to mention how often her recurring attempts to help others tend to blow up in her face (for example in episode 23, where [[spoiler: attempting to save Nathaniel from his abusive home gets him livid at her]], yet she doesn't give up (mainly because they DO usually end up with happy endings.) And in episode 31, [[spoiler: she is forgotten by Lysander, even if she's his GIRLFRIEND.]]

* FridgeHorror: Think about Nathaniel's life for a minute. He seems to keep his distance from everyone- basically everyone in the class is friends to some extent (excluding Amber's group and Capucine), but essentially all the kids have a specific best friend... except him. He doesn't seem to be very close to Melody, his sister is a self-absorbed brat, and your candy's relationship depends heavily on your own choices. [[spoiler: Considering his dad beats him and his mom doesn't seem to care, that means that the kid basically has **no one**. He's already confirmed as being highly sensitive and hard on himself. Consider what having basically no emotional support could do, psychologically, to anyone, especially a teenager.]] Fortunately, this seems to be getting better [[spoiler: after he moves out]] as he seems to be growing friendships with some of the others, like Armin.



** Violette, who's [[Moe sweet and adorable]] but [[ShrinkingViolet painfully shy and lacking in self-confidence.} Doesn't help that [[spoiler: her mother is dead.]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Through most of the game, Lysander's poor memory is PlayedForLaughs. Then comes episode 31, where [[spoiler: as a result of his car crash, he develops amnesia and forgets,among other things, who YOU are.]]

to:

** In episode 6, you find out Violette [[SecurityBlanket carries a stuffed animal around with her for comfort.]] When you meet everyone's parents, you find out [[spoiler: her mother died a few months ago.]] This, coupled with her natural shyness and social anxiety, is probably why she needs something comforting and secure to keep with her all the time, despite being in high school.

** Capucine's utterly devoted to Amber (who doesn't seem to care about her at all) and doesn't seem interested in making friends with any of the other girls OR boys. It doesn't help that her original creator (Capucine was one of the winning entries in a character creation contest) planned for her to have a crush on Jade (back when it seemed like he would be a major character) but this detail was completely taken out of the game.



** In Episode 31, on Castiel's route, [[spoiler: you get to see his reunion with Lysander. Though Castiel at first just tells him not to do that again, Lysander notes he looks like he needs to get some rest. Castiel then laughs in relief and tells him to take a look at himself.]] Considering that neither of them are generally very emotionally available, this scene is pretty cute. If you're not on Castiel's route, [[spoiler: it's still pretty heartwarming, in an odd way, how personally offended he gets at Nina for taking advantage of Lysander's amnesiac state.]] This episode really shows that [[OddFriendship despite their differences, they really have a true friendship.]]

* ScrappyMechanic: The Action Points system is pretty much universally detested by the fandom, especially because it's very easy to waste action points running around when you don't know where to go (and sometimes even if you go to the right place, the objective won't immediately trigger and you'll be left to waste even more until you happen to check that location again.) Not to mention that you get a total of 10-15 action points a day (without [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney spending real life money]]), which totals 5-7 movements. It's completely possible to waste several day's worth of action points without progressing the story at all. Unfortunately, Beemoov has said that they won't change this system as it's their main source of profit from the game.



** As of episode 31, Lysander, whose [[spoiler: father is dying, while he himself is suffering amnesia to the point of forgetting one of his best friends (or girlfriend) and isn't even aware of his father's sickness.]] This episode also gives us [[spoiler: Nina, whose mother is suffering a nervous breakdown over her DisappearedDad.]]

* {{Woolseyism}}: Here and there between the French and (mainly) English version. One example is at the beginning of episode 6. While talking to Leigh in the French version, you refer to him as "vous" the formal form of "you", and he tells you you can call him "tu", the informal form, since he's not much older than you. Since the informal "you" (thou) is no longer used in English, this is translated as you simply talking to him very formally and him telling you that you don't have to speak like that.

** Episode 31 has given the fandom conflicted views of Nina. [[spoiler: Apparently, her mother is depressed and recently was in the hospital because her father left the family. This is why she wanders around unattended so much, and why she developed an unhealthy crush on Lysander.]] Some people find that this, not to mention her young age, makes it harder to resent her for [[spoiler: her tricking an amnesiac Lysander into believing she is his girlfriend.]] Others argue that her situation is tragic but still doesn't justify her actions. You even have the option ingame of whether you'd like to forgive her or not.



** There are many people who wish [[HotTeacher Mr. Faraize]] was a pursuable character. Along the same line of thinking, the [[HospitalHottie doctor]] in episode 31, who had fans swooning ever since Chinomiko sneak-peeked his design on her Tumblr.

** Your candy has a tendency to talk about how gorgeous she finds Rosalya.

** Episode 31, too. All of the arcs are shaping up to be pretty emotional.



** In episode 25 Capucine has a ''panic attack''. This lead to an outpouring a sympathy for an otherwise pretty forgettable character.

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:

* 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.

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.
