* MomentOfFunny: Several:
** Anytime Lysander has a ditz moment. His notebook was one thing. But his pen and paper (in school no less!) and everything afterwards calls for some funny comments. Episode 17 in particular...
-->Lysander: I'm lost.
** When Alexy teases Kentin about his fear of Castiel and later on, his fashion sense.
** In episode 11 whoever you are partnered with will make a big deal out of you holding the map. They take the map since they think your candy will lose it. Guess what happens once you need the map? Your candy is not amused but you certainly will be.
*** Also if you partner with Castiel and meet up with Iris to ask about Amber:
--> '''Iris:''' Your list says Amber? That's kinda weird...
--> '''Castiel''': What are you smoking Iris?
** In episode 14 while practicing for the concert, Nathaniel's drumstick 'accidentally' flies out of his hand and just so happened to hit Castiel in the back of the head.
*** In that same episode, Armin thinks playing ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' drums is an good enough for a live concert. Castiel's and Lysander's comments really make the moment
** In episode 17 Rosalya goes through your closet and LOUDLY comments on your underwear not being sexy enough...while Kentin, Nathaniel, and Armin are standing right there.
*** This exchange (rough translation):
--> '''Kentin (talking to Nathaniel)''': Your uniform look was popular in my parent's time. You come to school wearing a shirt and tie!
--> '''Nathaniel''': I love my outfit it's not old-fashioned! And you're the one wearing military trousers from the 40s!
--> '''Kentin''': It's better than your ugly tie!
--> '''Candy (thinking)''': Damn. And here I thought only girls argued about that stuff.
** Episode 18 brought more to the table:
*** The girls giving Castiel a death glare when he says he doesn't care what happens to the rabbits. It was super effective.
*** The girls are dead-set on saving the rabbits and they ask the boys to help. Since it was very obviously more of a demand to help, all of the boys say yes. You then get a group shot of the boys agreeing to help and out of all of them only Lysander and Alexy are happy. The rest are using their mad animations.
*** Your date with Castiel. Mr. Farzie walks in just in time to see Castiel holding your shirt prompting Castiel to say it's NotWhatItLooksLike.
*** Kentin's reaction to kissing a rabbit.
*** When first attempting to save the rabbits with Armin and Nathaniel, one of the rabbits gets a little too [[MarshmallowHell comfortable in your candy's arms]]. Armin proceeds to make a joke and if your LO'M with Nathaniel is high enough he will defend your honor. Violently.
*** Rosalya takes you out to buy some clothes and no matter what you choose, even if you choose to IMPRESS him, Kentin will never notice what you wearing. His cheeky smile when he admits he wasn't paying attention also prompts a funny reaction from Candy.
--> '''Candy: Just tell me I'm pretty!'''
** Episode 21:
*** Nathaniel's measurements, according to Rosalya, would be perfect if he was a girl.
*** The argument between Nathaniel's and Castiel's parents (in a sort of BlackComedy kind of way knowing how much Nathaniel and Castiel hate each other). But the stand out moment is when grades are brought up.
*** And speaking of, Castiel and Nathaniel really went at it in this episode. Their fighting was kinda of funny when it wasn't disturbing.
*** Lysander's parents mistaking Nathaniel for Castiel despite his maaaaaany claims to the contrary. His frustration shouldn't be so funny but it is.
*** Armin is playing as Maleficient if you choose the Sleeping Beauty play. Candy?
--> '''Candy''': You really think they'll change Maleficient's gender for you?
--> '''Armin: THEY'D BETTER.'''
** When Castiel teases Nathaniel for getting his measurements taken after him, Rosalya immediately attacks his ego by saying that Leigh is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything bigger than him]]
--> '''Castiel''': You're in love...You're not objective.
** One of the things you can tell Castiel, if he plays the Big Bad Wolf, is 'what a beautiful dress you have'.
** Small one in episode 23. If you choose to talk to Armin and bring him to Nathanial's house, he'll lie and say that Nathaniel borrowed one of his game consoles. When he tries to get it back...
--> '''Armin'''(as you both are getting kicked out): And what about my game?
--> '''Nathaniel's mom''': To the devil with your stupidities!
*** The best part is he gets so into character that he still acts offended when she leaves.
** Episode 25 brings more gold to the room:
*** The students all get paired up for the science class. When Nathaniel finds out he's with Li he face palms. When Kentin finds out he's with Castiel, he looks terrified.
*** Amber and Armin are paired together and cause a little incident. Afterwards, in typical Amber fashion, she blames Armin for the fiasco.
--> '''Armin(upset): Are you serious?'''

* AlasPoorScrappy: In a bizarre subversion, Amber after episode 23. First she learns that her father was an abusive jerk and her mother stood by and let it happen, and then she's separated from Nathaniel because he moves out for good. Your candy is at first sympathetic, but then Amber basically reverts back to being an AlphaBitch losing a good chunk of sympathy from not only Candy, but the fandom as well.

** In Episode 33, [[spoiler: Priya and Iris actually KISS.]] It's on a dare, but still.



** Episode 33 involves underage drinking. While it's true that many American teens drink even if it's against the law, most American media would involve some kind of alcohol related catastrophe and AnAesop against it, both of which are missing. Furthermore, Melody's discouragement of drinking is treated as uptight and meant to make her less sympathetic, while a lot of American shows would treat her as a concerned friend and voice of reason.



** In the French version, Nathaniel is a class representative, but in international versions he is the student council president, which is a different post but has similar connotations. For some reason though, Melody remains a delegate in all versions.

** The disclaimer at the end of episode 33 about underage drinking was changed from under 18 years old (the French drinking age) to 21 in the American version.

** 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.

* JerkassWoobie: Capucine is utterly rude to you and everyone else, but it's becoming clear she has some kind of anxiety disorder and serious issues making friends, which is why she looks up to Amber so much. Also, in episode 32, Amber, who mainly was [[PetTheDog Petting the Dog]] in regards to her, [[spoiler: tells the whole class about her relationship with a nerdy underclassmen and bullies her to the point of tears.]]



** Episode 32 has several:
*** You and Peggy going to comfort Capucine when she runs away crying, even though neither of you are very close to her, and [[SchoolNewsPaperNewsHound Peggy]] promising not to write an article about [[spoiler: her boyfriend.]]
*** Mrs. Delanay actually showing genuine concern for Lysander and Capucine.
*** Even if your affinity isn't that high with Castiel, he still treats you rather warmly in this episode, partly due to CharacterDevelopment, and partly because of what you're doing to help Lysander.
*** The heart-to-heart you have with Rosalya while she sleeps over at your house.
*** Lysander [[spoiler: getting his memories back thanks to you bringing him his notebook.]]
*** Small one, but your parents, seeing what you've been through in the last few days, unground you and genuinely make an effort to try and support you.



** In episode 32 in Nathaniel's route, he talks about how even though the situation with his parents is technically resolved, he wishes that his mother would try to help him and emotionally support him. Even though he has your candy, it's still very sad (and very realistic) seeing how growing up [[spoiler: in an abusive household]] can affect someone.



** Nathaniel is abused by his very strict father (who [[ParentalFavoritism dotes on Amber by comparison]]) and while his mother sees it happening, she pretends it doesn't. Amber is completely unaware of it going on but being a SpoiledBrat she WILL give him hell if she thinks he's crossed her. And even at school, implied to be his safe haven, things don't always go so well for him.

Added DiffLines:

** In episode 2, Nathaniel and Castiel get into a physical fight over something relatively minor. When more major conflicts happen between them later on, it never escalates this far (barring the flashback in the Debrah arc) so one wonders what was different this time. Then you realize Lysander isn't introduced till episode 4. He probably makes an effort to stop Castiel from doing anything too hotheaded or impulsive, but since he wasn't around this time there was no reason for Castiel to calm down.

* {{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.

** 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.
