** Episode 39. Full stop. [[spoiler: If you are not on Armin's route, he will make out with Amber at the school dance (but '''only''' if you are not on his route). This led to a huge outcry of opinions from people with the main division being between those who were outraged/disgusted by Armin showing interest in the AlphaBitch and those who state that the fact that Candy choosing a certain boy means the rest of the bachelors are free to pursue other relationships with other people, including Amber.]] Interestingly enough, your candy is also distraught when she catches them and it's unclear why. Additionally, [[spoiler: your Candy decides to take things a step further with her boyfriend and goes so far as to take his shirt off. Some of the fandom are really excited about the maturity, others are upset that the scene wasn't made optional.]]

* 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.]]

** In-universe example. If you tell Kentin that you liked the old him better in episode 13 upon his return, he just looks sad and tells you you were the only he that did. In the context of episode 38, this becomes a lot more upsetting.



** Evan. His behavior often crosses the line, and his influence on Kentin is wholly negative, but [[spoiler: not only did he lose his parents at 10 years old and be separated from his baby brothers, he also grew up in a toxic military school environment where he was bullied as badly as Kentin and possibly raped, and developed his jerk behavior as a method of keeping people from picking on him.]] Not to mention he thinks he's protecting Kentin, and he doesn't seem to realize how badly he's behaving (take his shock at himself and his instant apology after Rosalya yelled at him him pushing himself on her.)



** Kentin was apparently bullied mercilessly at his/Candy's old school. Even the teachers forgot about him! The sole reason he moved to Sweet Amoris in the first place is because the ONLY person who was nice to him (your candy) moved there. A bit of FridgeHorror or FridgeLogic takes place if you make your candy mean to him too. At Sweet Amoris he is immediately bullied by Amber and her friends and his dad ships him off to military school for being unable to fight back.

And as we later find out, he faced much worse bullying there. Even once he gets back, he has serious self-image issues from his time there.

* Expy: With her GothicLolita style, blonde hair in pigtails, obsession with one man (and while she's not a singer, he is), cheery and upbeat personality with a terrifying temper, and [[spoiler: tragic background involving her parents]], Nina can easily bring to mind Misa Amane from DeathNote.

* MostWritersAreAdults: Usually averted, but sometimes falls into this. One of the most practical examples is the fact that the player character often texts her friends and boyfriend, leading the mostly teenage and young adult players to wonder why she doesn't text them to ask where they are during the countless hours she wastes wandering around looking for them.
** Some of the language used in early episodes is pretty stilted and formal for teenagers (even if you account for LostInTranslation) though this is improving in newer episodes with more casual usage of slang.
** The way the students react to the sex ed class in episode 37 seems more accurate to elementary or middle schoolers who've never had it than older teenagers (at least 16 and probably 17), though it could have to do with their teacher being clearly embarrassed, the topics not being handled in the most mature way, and RuleOfFunny.



** Alexy's breakdown and Armin's guilt, coupled with the fact that this is easily the most serious conflict they've had during the game, in episode 36 is pretty depressing to see.



** 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.

** The very slangy "si ça te dit" in episode 37 is translated as the equally slangy "if you're down."

** And now that we know Priya [[spoiler: is bisexual and has dated girls in the past]], her behavior towards Candy very well COULD be beyond friendship (and you can SEEM to return these feelings, though at this point you're already [[spoiler: in a relationship.]])
** The player character's protectiveness of Iris, specifically when she is [[spoiler: being stalked and harassed]], can be read as romantic as easily as strong friendship (at one point, in her internal monologue, she even refers to her as "my sweet Iris"!)



** On episode 35, [[spoiler: On Armin's path. When Charlotte tries avoid being punished for blackmailing Iris, she tries to blackmail back Candy and Armin with telling everyone that they're a couple, knowing that they're trying to keep it secret, the happy couple holds hands. Charlotte is horrified to found that her words didn't had an effect on them and her only response is to run away from them, as if they're going to attack her]]

** More generally in episode 35, you, Armin, and possibly your boyfriend all teaming up to help Iris. It's especially cool if you choose to physically fight [[spoiler: the stalker.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Doubling as CrowningMomentOfAwesome, in episode 35, you, Armin, and your main date (if he's not Armin) all teaming up to help Iris.


Added DiffLines:

** In Episode 35, [[spoiler: Charlotte's blackmailing of Iris. This creates the distinction between Charlotte and Amber: while Amber is just dumb, self-centered, and mean, Charlotte downright has a screwed up scale of justice, especially when you consider her motivation: to get back at Iris for supposedly trying to steal her boyfriend- while Iris had no idea the guy was dating anyone and in fact broke it off pretty quickly.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Episode 35 centers around Iris [[spoiler: being blackmailed, by someone who has inappropriate pictures of her, in increasingly bizarre ways: forcing her to purposefully get bad grades, sending her out in the middle of the night, etc., all while she is unable to tell anyone what's going on.]] To make matters worse, [[spoiler: it's one of her own classmates doing it, for rather insignificant reasons.]] It doesn't help that [[AdultFear this is a very real issue many adolescents go through nowadays.]]


Added DiffLines:

** And now that Priya,[[spoiler: who is AmbiguouslyBi]], is around, pairing her with Candy or [[FoeYay Amber]] is more common than shipping her with any of the boys.


Added DiffLines:

** Iris in [[BreakTheCutie episodes 34 and 35.]]

* 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.
