* HilariousInHindsight: Possibly the ''mother of all of them'': Creator/DaisukeHirakawa (Makoto's [=VA=]) also voiced [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Will Turner]] and the way how he ends his story in the films is similar in the same way how Makoto ends his own's... [[spoiler: except Will is now the captain of his own '''NICE BOAT''' and ''he does get the girl'' (and has a kid with her), contrasting how Makoto ends here, when not only he doesn't get the girl (and their supposed unborn kid either didn't exist or died with her), he also ends in a ''NICE BOAT''... [[OffWithHisHead with only his head inside of it]].]]

** Yuki for numerous reasons. The main reason is that he's the NiceGuy}} to Makoto's {{Jerkass}} personality and probably the OnlySaneMan that is GenreSavvy enough to realize what's going on. He can call Sekai out on everything she's done to Kotohana and punch Makoto for being a dick. Finally [[spoiler: he's the cross dresser that many guys have deemed more attractive than the girls of this series]].

* LoveItOrHateIt: Either the anime is a complete train wreck of a show hampered by an IdiotPlot and an [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy extremely unlikeable cast of characters]]. Others find charm in the series in how it takes the various tropes seen in the Harem genre and deconstructs them mercilessly.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Many who dislike the show have cited the unlikeable characters and the IdiotPlot as reasons for why they've hated it. Some who enjoy the show have actually cited these things as reasons for ''why'' they like it, as the main character's [[YourCheatingHeart refusal to remain faithful to his girlfriend]] coupled with his ReallyGetsAround nature is something that many men, especially in this day and age, unfortunately do to their partners.

** How many people even realize that that most of the game's endings are very conventional ''good'' endings? Including one ending where [[spoiler: The MarryThemAll solution that is Deconstructed in the anime is played completely ''straight'' with Sekai and Kotonoha, now best friends, happily talking to each other like sisters in the snow about celebrating Chirstmas with Makoto by having a threesome and announcing that they are both carrying his children as a present. No Nice Boat here.]]

** Is Makoto just a poor guy who got caught up in the thrill of having [[ChickMagnet so many women willing to sleep with him]], that he lost sight of what was really important? Or is he a JerkAss who cared for nothing but [[ItsAllAboutMe his own pleasure]], and [[spoiler: only went back to Kotonoha because she was the only one besides Sekai who would take him?]] The fact that his Manga Character is VASTLY different from his Anime Character doesn't help.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** The VisualNovel DownerEnding theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDqeUjt6dxg "Kanashimi no Mukou e"]], [[spoiler:which plays during Makoto and Sekai's deaths]].
** The "Timeless Melody" froms Cross Days which plays on Makoto's best ending, Roka's better endings or Roka's bad ending/ Ai's good ending.

* {{Fan Preferred Couple}}: Surprisingly, Yuki and Makoto. Yuki is the only person that stands up and calls him out for cheating on the girls where Taisuke and his friends praise him for getting multiple girls and "becoming a man". Since at this point of time, he's already in over his head and is out right annoyed that he of all people punched him. However, he falls for Yuki's counterpart Yu because she's different from the other girls he's dated. "She" is the only girl that outright cares that he is going out with multiple woman and because of Yu, he's able to think better and realize the error of his ways. His love for Yu gets to the point where he's willing to stand up to Taisuke for "her". And of course, [[spoiler: in the true ending, he shouts at the top of his lungs that he loves Yu. Even when he finds out that Yu is a boy, he realizes he doesn't care about the gender because Yuki and Yu are the same person and Yu changed him.]]

* LemonStu: Makoto. And to a greater extent, Tomaru Sawagoe.
* LesYay: Aside of the Sekai/Kotonoha fondling and kissing from the ThreeWaySex scenes in the original, ''Cross Days'' has a scene where [[spoiler: Makoto has sex with Hikari... while Roka fondles and then does Nanami.]]

** Yuki too is a major woobie, because he is '''the''' {{nice guy}} in the entire series and how sometimes the things he do to prevent the tragedy backfire on him.
** Makoto himself, at least his VN and manga versions, though they often tend to be overshadowed by his JerkAss anime counterpart. His ''Cross Days'' manga version is perhaps the only incarnation who's too horrible to be considered either a Woobie ''or'' a JerkassWoobie.

* BrokenBase: Things turn nasty later in the series.
** The Bad Ends are truly infamous for how dark and violent they are. Even if the player is into the {{Yandere}} girls, it's still uncomfortable and unexpected to see a girl be brutally murdered with no one to save them.
** Makoto's {{Jerkass}} behavior. While it is possible to make him a NiceGuy by treating Kotonoha and Sekai right, the Bad Ends are a result of him treating one or both of the girls terribly. Unfortunately, his negative traits are transferred over to the anime where there are fans who ''loathe'' him and were glad that he was [[spoiler:killed off by Sekai]].
** Same with Sekai. She initially seems willing to help Makoto in wooing Kotonoha, but then she decides that she wants him for herself. Many fans blame her for Makoto's downward spiral into his sexual adventures.

* FridgeBrilliance:
** How come Otome's friends get away scot free? [[spoiler: [[MuggingTheMonster They don't.]] See KarmaHoudini or the WMG for the reason why.]]
** Why there's no bad ending in Cross Days that Roka or Ai killed Yuuki? One is Yuuki's NiceGuy status. Two is how neither girl is as emotionally unstable as as Kotonoha or Sekai, especially [[spoiler:Ai, who despite her MadLove personality, is willing to give up Makoto and Yuuki and let them be happy with who they chose.]]
* FridgeHorror:
** [[spoiler:Itaru Itou lives with her father Tomaru. The one who already impregnated several of his underage daughters, sometimes with aid of fertility drugs. He's also responsible for ensuring that Makoto is either a cousin or an uncle for around half his potential love interests, including Sekai. At one occasion, when she runs away from home to visit Makoto, she tells him she hates their dad - hopefully, ''hopefully'' this is only because Makoto is so nice to her that her dad is unlikable by contrast.]]
** Don't know if this help you a little but [[spoiler:according to a possible route of Summer Radish Vacation 2, Tomaru was castrated by Rideru Takatsukasa (basically, rendering him impotent). It's unclear whether or not this development carries over to the School Days canon, however.]]
* JerkAssWoobie: It's easy to feel sympathy for Sekai throughout the story. But considering that her actions were pretty much the reason the entire plot happened. [[spoiler: Not to mention that it's even worse in the manga]].
** Makoto's anime counterpart, as well as some of his possible visual novel personalities could also count. In the anime, he actually becomes TheAtoner towards the end and tries to start over with Kotonoha, but ultimately gets himself killed by virtue of being a massive dick to Sekai. Similarly, even though his actions in the VN are generally what result in him getting screwed over in the bad endings, he's often portrayed sympathetically even then.
