The sequel to the first ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'', ''Da Capo II'' is set two generations, approximately 53 years after the events of ''Da Capo''.

The sakura tree that Sakura Yoshino's grandmother had planted was again in bloom. The main protagonist is Yoshiyuki Sakurai, a second year student at Kazami Academy. Much like Junichi in ''Da Capo'', he is surrounded by his friends, [[ThoseTwoGuys two of which are male]], Wataru and Suginami, and he can also see other people's dreams. He had a friendly relationship with Yume and Otome Asakura, granddaughters of Nemu and Junichi. Yoshiyuki lives in Sakura's home, and she is now the principal of Kazami Academy. His childhood friend, Koko Tsukishima, confesses to him in the first episode and he accepts. He also accidentally awakens a robot, Minatsu Amakase, who hates all humans.

The first season is more lighthearted than the second; the second season trudges deeply into {{Utsuge}} territory.

The original VisualNovel was also released in English by [=MangaGamer=] on December 24, 2010.

----
!!Tropes in this work include:

* ACupAngst: Otome. [[PetitePride Averted by]] [[GenreSavvy Anzu]], who teases Otome by saying that being flat chested is okay since that's pretty moe too, but being "half flat" like Otome...
* AngstySurvivingTwin - Akane, as revealed in ''Plus Situation/Plus Communication'' [[spoiler: she had an identical twin, Ai, who died before the main storyline. Akane, in her misery, made a wish on the Magical Sakura tree to somehow revive Ai, and Akane ended up "hosting" Ai's spirit within herself. Akane breaks down after the Tree is withered, cancelling the wish]]
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling - Yume, to Yoshiyuki. She and Otome get along better.
* ArbitrarySkepticism - Somewhat humorously averted. Otome asks Yoshiyuki if he believes in SantaClaus. Yoshiyuki creates a piece of candy with magic as he ponders this and then decides he's open to the possibility Santa exists, though he has yet to see any signs of it.
* AscendedExtra - In Plus Communication, side characters Akane, Maya and Mayuki all have routes. So does Erika Murasaki. She's actually in the original DCII as well, but she has no VA or character sprite and you can only find her if you go to areas where the other girls aren't.
** However, in the same Plus Communication, [[spoiler:there are some side scenes where Yoshiyuki says "She looks like Erica...", meaning that one is yet another cameo.]]
** Also in Plus Communication, [[spoiler:one of the two hidden characters can be heard but not seen in certain scenes.]]
* BackFromTheDead - More specifically, back from being [[spoiler:magicked out of existence.]]
* BadLiar - Minatsu. Yoshiyuki is one too, at least as far as the Asakura sisters are concerned, them having figured out his subconscious giveaways.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor - Oh so much.
** Subverted or zigzagged or something with Anzu though. [[spoiler:She starts off with some sort of memory problem, then wishes to the cherry tree to be able to have a memory as good or better than her classmates and gets it. However, she can't forget bad things at all and wishes she didn't have her memory. But then when the cherry tree dies again and her memory returns to normal, she's incredibly broken up about it.]]
* BigFancyHouse - Mizukoshi makes a comment about growing up in one, since she's clearly related to {{The Ojou}}s of the first Da Capo, Moe and Mako. [[spoiler:Anzu]] also lives in one...entirely alone.
* BishoujoSeries - It's a DatingSim like its [[VisualNovel/DaCapo prequel.]]
* {{Bishounen}} - Suginami. The new one (Who looks identical to the previous).
* BittersweetEnding - [[spoiler:The Sakura epilogue seems to turn all routes into one, though closer to the 'happy' side of things. In particular, it's revealed that Sakura won't be coming back, though she isn't dead. As a trade-off for this, Yoshiyuki comes back/didn't disappear at all. Junichi on the other hand ''is'' almost certainly dead.]]
* {{Bokukko}} - Sakura.
* BreakTheCutie - Otome in the latter half of the second season and [[spoiler:Yoshiyuki as his friends begin to forget him.]]
** Anzu too, [[spoiler:once her memory problem comes back]] in the visual novel.
* BromanticFoil - Wataru
* BrotherSisterIncest - Sakura actually pulls Yoshiyuki aside and tells him it's okay if he falls in love with Yume or Otome.
** Worth mentioning is that canonically, Junichi and Nemu ended up together, and that Sakura is Junichi's cousin and [[KissingCousins really wanted to be together with him]] as well. Thank goodness for NotBloodSiblings being in play or all this incest could get problematic.
*** On the other hand, Yoshiyuki [[spoiler:is the son Sakura and Junichi never had. Sakura would be both his mother and first cousin once removed, while Yoshiyuki himself would be Otome and Yume's half uncle.]]
* ButNotTooForeign - Erika Murasaki in ''Plus Situation/Plus Communication'' is first introduced as the [[{{Ojou}} "First Princess of a Royal Family in Eastern Europe"]], but knows enough about Japanese customs to refuse addressing (the more senior) Yoshiyuki as Sempai after he [[ThanksForTheMammary accidentally groped her]]. [[spoiler: She is later revealed to be an AlienGirl, and also the princess of her planet as well, her real name being Erika Focus Light]]
* ButNowIMustGo - [[spoiler:Done multiple times in the second season, when Yoshiyuki's friends begin to forget who he is. The best example in the show is when Yoshiyuki actually disappears in front of Otome.]]
* ButThouMust - Referenced and parodied (though you actually aren't given a choice box) in one of Otome's scenes, where she asks Yoshiyuki over and over in exactly the same way, and he mentally compares her to a princess who's been captured by a dragon.
* ButtMonkey - Wataru
* {{Callback}} - The second season episode entitled "Sakuranbo and Onii-chan," and Junichi's description of Mako, Moe, Miharu, Yoriko, and Kotori. Nemu is mentioned once by name.
** Also, Yoshiyuki's first dream in the first episode of the second season is a callback to how Junichi had the same kind of dream (only that it involved Nemu though) in the very first episode of the first season of the original ''Da Capo''.
* CanonImmigrant - Aisia from the second season of ''Da Capo'''s [[TheAnimeOfTheGame anime adaptaion]] is one of the heroines in the UpdatedRerelease of the visual novel.
* CantHoldHisLiquor - In the Visual Novel, Otome and Yume get drunk on Amazake. In Otome's case, one tiny cup.
** It's implied Otome just faked being drunk to get a moment alone with Yoshiyuki, and the "hangover" was simply her being sick from unrelated reasons, and not saying anything about it (until collapsing in the street later).
* CatSmile - Nanaka sports one of these often. Mayuki does so less often, but when she does it's an indicator that she's thinking of something evil.
* [[CherryBlossomGirl Cherry Blossom Guy]]: Yoshiyuki Sakurai. [[spoiler:He got from Sakura based on her own full name, Sakura Yoshino when she wished for family, and he shares a connection to the tree]].
* CherryBlossoms
* ChickMagnet - Akane has to spell it out for Yoshiyuki that he's rather popular with girls in Nanaka's route.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance - Koko is one of the heroines and has like Yoshiyuki for years. Wataru in turn likes her, but, well, he's not the protagonist.
* ChildhoodFriends - Part of the drama of Koko's route is based around the fact that Yoshiyuki, Wataru and Koko are all childhood friends. Wataru likes Koko who likes Yoshiyuki, and from there it gets complicated as attempts are made to limit the emotional fallout.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve - The never withering sakura tree is the physical embodiment of this. However, [[spoiler:it is exactly this in ''Da Capo II'', as it also grants impure wishes.]]
* ClassRepresentative - Maya
* ClingyJealousGirl - Otome, after she and Yoshiyuki start dating in her route. Even beforehand she tended to adhere to him like glue with no sense of shame, but afterwards, the jealous part kicks in. Nanaka also.
* ConspiracyTheorist - Suginami, though Yoshiyuki speculates that he doesn't believe in any of them and merely finds the theories interesting in and of themselves.
* ContinuityNod - One that doesn't go explained in the English release is the series of robot names. It's explained that Minatsu is Mi + summer, with Miaki and Mifuyu being autumn and winter respectively. So what happened to spring? Why, it's Miharu of course.
* CovertPervert - Akane and Anzu insist that Koko is one, but it's mostly just teasing.
* CringeComedy - [[ACupAngst Otome]] coldly reading off the titles of [[PornStash Yoshiyuki's porn collection]] to him and Yume, who are scared shitless, as she digs them out from under his bed, before ordering Yume to take them outside to burn them. Naturally, they're all very cliched porn titles about voluptuous and big breasted women.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming - Yoshiyuki thanking Sakura [[spoiler:for wishing him into existence, and calling her "mom" for the first time.]]
* CryCute - Yume and Otome crank up the waterworks in Season 2, especially in the second half.
* DatePeepers - Episode 5 has Akane, Anzu, Nanaka, and Wataru spying on Yoshiyuki and Koko's date. They hilariously get busted after Wataru freaks out from hearing Anzu describe them kissing.
* DatingSim
* DebutQueue - Done very obviously and with an appropriate EstablishingCharacterMoment for each heroine in the game.
* DeceptivelyHumanRobots - The Miaki and Mifuyu robot lines are not as human as they look. The movements are wrong and they have inhuman mannerisms, though not in a creepy way. Some details from Minatsu's route more or less confirm that this is intentional as people do not like robots that are too human.
* DeepImmersionGaming - Episode 8 of the first season. Minatsu is playing a zombie shooting game, and Yoshiyuki puts a pair of virtual reality glasses on her. The next scene shows her in a dark, decrepit forest, which freaks her out, particularly when a zombie is heard behind her in the game.
* DemotedToExtra - Nanaka of all people, has the least screentime among Yoshiyuki's friends in the second season. Also Maika Mizukoshi, who was deeply involved with Yoshiyuki due to Minatsu, is hardly seen in the second season.
** Practically all of Yoshiyuki's classmates take a backseat in Season 2 to make room for Yume and Otome. While they have more screentime than Nanaka, they don't play as big a role as they did in season 1. Anzu is the sole exception, but after the first 4 episodes, she's not as vital except during a few scenes late in Season 2.
* DepartureMeansDeath - [[spoiler:Yoshiyuki]] can't leave the island without slowly fading away and dying. [[spoiler:Well, it's strongly implied anyway. Good thing Sakura gave him that pendant and he kept the promise not to take it off ever, huh?]]
* DeusExMachina - Anzu hesitates when writing her story because she can't decide if she wants to give a tragic ending where the lovers are parted, or a happy ending. She opts for the happy ending, which comes about due to a deus ex machina. [[spoiler:This actually foreshadows her own ending.]]
* DiabolusExMachina - The result of impure wishes being granted by the sakura tree. Blatantly impossible things happen.
* DisappearsIntoLight - [[spoiler:Yoshiyuki, [[PlayerPunch in front of Otome]].]]
* [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Bananas]]: Minatsu has to eat bananas in order for her systems to work. Unfortunately for her, she hates them.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything - Minatsu's early hijinks involving bananas.
* [[DotingParent Doting Older Sister]] - Yoshiyuki is pretty much Otome's favorite person in the world, and she will not hesitate to show it no matter how embarassing he may find it.
* DreamSequence
* DreamingOfThingsToCome - Yume can see the future through her dreams. This is how she found out that [[spoiler:Yoshiyuki would disappear when Otome withered the sakura tree.]]
* EarnYourHappyEnding - [[spoiler:Yoshiyuki is brought back by Sakura, however, the price she had to pay was her existence. Also, in Season 2, expect to get GutPunch and TraumaCongaLine repeatedly before you get to see the finale. ]]
** In the epilogue to the visual novel however, [[spoiler:it turns out she's still alive, but she's lost all her memories.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita - Anzu
* HairDecorations - The entire female cast has something in their hair.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt - Yoshiyuki and the Asakura sisters do pretty much the worst job ever of hiding their attraction to each other. Strangely, while they get teased for it, nobody seems to think the BrotherSisterIncest aspect is particularly wrong.
* {{Expy}} - Most of the characters are reminiscent of characters in the original ''VisualNovel/DaCapo'', with some of them being descended from characters in ''Da Capo'', though the only genealogies that are confirmed is that Yume and Otome are Junichi and Nemu's grandchildren, and Nanaka is related to Kotori, [[spoiler:though it's been said that Nanaka also blood-related to Junichi.]]
** Specifically, Yoshiyuki is an {{Expy}} of Junichi, Minatsu is a combination of Miharu and Mako, Nanaka takes over for Kotori, since she's also a Shirakawa, while Yume is a combination of both Junichi and Nemu (though Otome also resembles Nemu whenever she has her hair up). Most blatantly is Suginami, who [[EpilepticTrees may very well be the same Suginami from 53 years ago]].
** More specifically, [[spoiler:supposedly, Yoshiyuki is the son that Junichi and Sakura never had, while Nanaka is the daughter that Junichi and Kotori never had.]]
** Though not quite expys, Erika and Izumiko of the first Da Capo game both share the same surname, Murasaki. [[spoiler:Although it's just an alias for the both of them. On that note, both of them are also aliens, though Izumiko isn't a princess. And while we're at it, there are also ghost girls Kasumi and Mahiru in both of the Plus Communication games.]]
** On the other hand, Sakura is still the same Sakura entirely (though the cat Utamaru has been replaced with a dog, Harimao). And in the game, Aisia is the same Aisia.
** Mizukoshi also takes over for Koyomi.
* FantasticRacism - Most of the students and ''especially'' Maya, Yoshiyuki's ClassRepresentative, against Minatsu.
** In episode 12, [[spoiler: Minatsu saves Maya's little brother, which causes Maya, along with the rest of the school, to reconsider their opinion]].
* FateWorseThanDeath - [[spoiler:Sakura Yoshino's fate in the VisualNovel epilogue: She is doomed to wander the land for as long as she lives (which is practically forever), and she has lost all her memories.]]
** [[spoiler:YMMV. We see her being spoken to by someone else, having clearly lost her memories. In fact, this may be considered a bittersweet ending for her; While she doesn't remember Yoshiyuki anymore, the original game implied that she didn't grow older because she fell in love with Junichi but couldn't settle down with him. No longer remembering him nor tied to the past, she may be able to fall in love with someone else, grow older and have a family.]]
*** [[spoiler: The person that Sakura is speaking to in the epilogue? [[VisualNovel/DaCapoIII Ricca Greenwood/Morizono Ricca.]]]]
* FingerSuckHealing: Yoshiyuki does this to Yume in the anime episode 7 of Da Capo II Season 2.
** Also happens in the game, during one of Yume's [[LethalChef clumsy attempts at cooking]].
* {{Foreshadowing}} - [[spoiler:The puppet show provides a ''big'' insight of Yoshiyuki and Otome's relationship in the immediate future. It also has some parallels with Anzu's own ending. Does she inexplicably get better and remember Yoshiyuki, or do they tragically part?]]
* FriendlyEnemy - Suginami and Mayuki have a relationship something like this. It occasionally seems to even border on FoeYay.
* TheGadfly - Despite being Junichi's expy, it's not Yoshiyuki. Instead, the title of series troll was passed down to Anzu instead.
* GagBoobs - Some of the ladies of ''Da Capo II'' are pretty well stacked (Koko, Mizukoshi...), but Akane tops them all easily.
* GaidenGame - There are 3 without crossover: ''Spring Celebration'' for girls in original game, ''To You'' as some prequel, and ''Fall in Love'' for girls added in ''Plus Situation/Plus Communication''. Put them together with original game, and you have complete four seasons!
* {{Gainaxing}} - Apparently Akane's voluptuousness is such that the narration in the VisualNovel often feels the need to explicitly point out she's doing this, since being illustrated with static images leaves [[ShowDontTell no way of showing this.]]
* GenerationXerox - For obvious reasons, though some of the characteristics were shuffled around.
* GenkiGirl - Yuzu, one of the characters in Nanaka's route, pretty much ''defines'' this trope.
* GenreSavvy - Anzu
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar - In the original version of the VN, Anzu is treating Yoshiyuki like a dog in return for giving him a yakisoba bread, and the last command she gives is 'beg me' which causes everyone to freeze up. The translator notes explain that it's a pun on the word dick or cock, which is normally censored in sex scenes. But Anzu is just telling him to beg.
* GhostStory - There is one story told per [[TheSevenMysteries mystery of the school]] before the TestOfCourage.
* GirlishPigtails - Sakura and Nanaka.
* GoneHorriblyWrong - [[spoiler:Sakura was intending to bring back the magic cherry trees that granted wishes and fix the problems they had... but she made a mistake and the tree just keeps getting stronger while granting ''all'' wishes, not just the pure, gentle wishes that the original did.]]
* GratuitousEnglish:
--> '''Yume''': Could you pass me the soy sauce please?
** Also:
--> '''Maya''': Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
* GreenEyedMonster - Yume is rather jealous of her sister in Yume's route. Especially since Yoshiyuki's rather {{oblivious to love}}.
* HappilyAdopted - [[spoiler:Anzu. Yoshiyuki in the present may or may not count depending on how you look at it.]]
** Yoshiyuki in the backstory - when he was brought into the Asakura household after Sakura found him, the Asakura siblings' mother, [[MissingMom Yuki]], treated him as one of her own children without hesitation and he remembers her quite fondly.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower - Contrary to the first game, Junichi insists to Yoshiyuki that being able to magically produce sweets is a pretty great magical power when teaching it to him. Considering that Yoshiyuki gets surprisingly good use of it, he's not exactly wrong.
* HeroicSacrifice - Done by [[spoiler:Sakura, Junichi, and Yoshiyuki, in that order.]]
* HormoneAddledTeenager - Wataru.
* HotSpringsEpisode
* IdenticalGrandson: Suginami in this series looks and sounds suspiciously like the Suginami from the first ''Da Capo''.
* IJustWantToBeNormal - [[spoiler:The reason Otome made her and Yoshiyuki forget about their childhood promise. Later in her story, she's practically screaming this as she withers the cherry tree and later on again when Yoshiyuki fades away as a result.]]
* IllBeInMyBunk: One possible interpretation for a scene with Yoshiyuki, Wataru and Koko where Yoshiyuki puts the image of Koko squirming in embarrassment into Wataru's head, who suddenly has to leave to take care of something. When he returns after Koko has already left, he basically comments about how he can't control his sex drive. How else are you supposed to interpret that?
* ImageSong - Six have been released for Koko, Minatsu, Nanaka, Anzu, Yume, and Otome.
* ImportantHaircut - [[spoiler:Nanaka cuts her hair very short to symbolize being heartbroken after being rejected in Koko's route. The significance isn't explained to the English speaking audience until the Sakura epilogue with a comment by Junichi when he's cutting ''her'' hair.]]
* IronicEcho - [[spoiler:The scene where Yoshiyuki greets Koko, Wataru and Suginami, after the three of them have forgotten him. Wataru asks Koko if Yoshiyuki is her ex-boyfriend, while Koko responds that she never had a boyfriend.]] AsYouKnow...
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology - Aside from the common ones for older brothers, sisters, and brother and sister figures, Otome calls Yoshiyuki "Otouto-kun" - "little brother." Her friend Mayuki calls him that too, though considering her relationship with him it seems like she's gently mocking him in doing so.
* KillAllHumans - Minatsu's original intentions, until she got to know Yoshiyuki and the gang better.
* LargeHam - Suginami.
** Wataru as well, particularly when lamenting Yoshiyuki's UnwantedHarem and [[AManIsNotAVirgin his own virginity.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia - Yoshiyuki forgot his [[PinkySwear childhood]] [[ThePromise promise]] with Otome [[spoiler: because she used magic to make herself forget it, which carried over to Yoshiyuki.]]
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall - "Oh God, please! Let me make a different decision! [[SaveScumming I want to go back to a few minutes ago!]]"
* LethalChef - Yume seems to have inherited Nemu's bad cooking; however, just like Nemu, she improves drastically after one season.
* LittleMissSnarker - Anzu has a strong tendency towards deadpan and teasing.
* LittleSisterHeroine - Yume. A clear expy of Nemu, she remains a definite tsundere type and is largely differentiated by being less of a ClingyJealousGirl.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch - A mild example, but early in Otome's path it becomes clear Yoshiyuki is the reason she doesn't break down from stress.
* LoveTriangle - Multiple examples. Nanaka -> Yoshiyuki <- Koko, Wataru -> Koko -> Yoshiyuki and Otome -> Yoshiyuki <- Yume are probably the three best examples. Anzu does apologize under her breath to Koko when confessing to Yoshiyuki in her own route, but Koko never makes any fuss over it there.
* MarshmallowHell - In episode 4 of the anime, after falling down in a three legged race, Anzu pushes Yoshiyuki's head down onto Koku's chest, and keeps him from being able to get up from there.
* MatchmakerCrush - Anzu and Akane are supporting Koko in her endeavors, but Anzu likes him as well and has for some time. Akane is also implied to have a bit of a crush, but has no route in the original. In Plus Communication though... Nanaka was ''also'' supposed to be supporting Koko, which is the primary source of drama in her own route and in Koko's can give you a NonstandardGameOver if you make certain choices.
* MeaningfulName - Yoshiyuki Sakurai's name [[spoiler:who was named by Sakura when he appeared after she wished for "family," is a variation of Sakura's own name, Sakura Yoshino]].
** More meaningful is the fact that [[spoiler:''Sakurai'' literally means ''From within Sakura''. A big indication of Yoshiyuki's true origin.]]
** Also Yume, who doesn't dream.
* {{Meganekko}} - Occasionally, Yume. Maya just about all the time. Also Mizukoshi-sensei.
* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead - As [[spoiler:Nanaka]] discovered. She also gets quite embarrassed when she reads what Yoshiyuki and Yume did the night before.
** In episode 7 of the anime, also happens when she tries to confess her feelings for Yoshiyuki. After getting trapped up on the roof during a typhoon, he ends up rescuing her due to a coincidence where he went back to get his notebook. She almost seems to confess her feelings for her, until he accidentally touches her hand, which causes her to understand his intention, which was [[ShipSinking purely as a friend.]]
* MomentKiller - In the anime, Koko and Yoshiyuki seem to suffer from these a lot by their otherwise well-meaning friends.
* MultipleEndings
* NeverGotToSayGoodbye - [[spoiler:Obviously, everyone other than Yume and Otome, who are the last two to remember Yoshiyuki's existence.]]
* NiceGuy - Yoshiyuki for the most part. Interestingly, this, along with another [[ObliviousToLove problem]], gets his relationship in trouble with Koko in the anime. He seems so interested/dedicated to helping others, [[spoiler: particularly Amakase, that it causes him to ignore Koko's feelings and reject her desires to help him with those issues, that she breaks up with him]].
* NiceHat - Minatsu's black-and-white hat.
* NoHuggingNoKissing - The girls are all unattached. [[DatingSim Obviously.]] However, at points it is justified or averted. Nanaka is popular enough to get confessions all the time, but rejects them because the admirers are shallow and Koko is fixated on Yoshiyuki. And it's mentioned in passing outside of Minatsu's[[labelnote:*]]Read: The one that is not in love with Yoshiyuki at the start[[/labelnote]] route that she's gotten a boyfriend.
* NoOntologicalInertia - [[spoiler:The effects of wishes granted by the magical sakura tree are cancelled out when the tree dies, most dramatically applying to the protagonist himself.]]
* NonHumanSidekick - The chibi dog Harimao, who seems to have replaced Utamaru.
* NonstandardGameOver - If you have enough points with Nanaka, in what should be the Koko route you can instead choose to end up with Nanaka instead due to Yoshiyuki feeling guilty for being an ass earlier and sympathy due to her [[spoiler:being in the hospital because of him.]] The story ends with this instead of continuing.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace - Nanaka has a tendency to get very hands on with people she barely knows, which has causes some misunderstandings. Otome is also very touchy-feely with Yoshiyuki, though not with anybody else.
* NotBloodSiblings - Yume and Otome with respect to Yoshiyuki. Of course, as expected, [[BrotherSisterIncest they take up Nemu's mantle]].
* NotSoDifferent - Minatsu actually notes at one point that she probably doesn't have the right to get ''too'' angry at [[FantasticRacism how she's being treated]] considering her attitude towards humans when she first woke up.
* NoNameGiven / OnlyOneName - Like many things about him, what Suginami's full name may be, or even if he has one beyond "Suginami", is a mystery.
* ObliviousToLove - Yoshiyuki, Yoshiyuki, Yoshiyuki... It's enough to make you wish Junichi had also passed along some of his common sense along with the candy making trick.
* OlderThanTheyLook- Sakura doesn't look like she's aged at all since ''Da Capo''.
* OutOfCharacterMoment - A scene in Koko's route is forced onto Yoshiyuki where he becomes uncharacteristically dickish by [[spoiler:randomly starting to date Nanaka even though both know he doesn't like her and telling Koko about it in a spiteful manner]] because otherwise there's really not enough conflict going on to keep the story going.
* PantyShot - Nanaka's introductory CG.
* ParentalAbandonment - Anzu, who was abandoned by her parents [[spoiler:because of her terrible memory. She then made a wish on the sakura tree to have excellent memory. When Otome withers the tree, she loses this ability.]]
* ParentalSubstitute - Sakura, Junichi, and Otome together all play some sort of parental role for the Asakura and Yoshino households, though Otome herself is still a teenager. [[spoiler: And Sakura subverts it because she's Yoshiyuki's ''actual'' mother.]]
* PetitePride - Unlike Otome, Anzu is not against using her flatness.
* PlayingCyrano - Anzu and Akane to Koko for Yoshiyuki.
* PutOnABus - After Minatsu's expulsion/graduation, she and her whereabouts are not mentioned at all in the second season. [[spoiler: However, in her route's epilogue in the visual novel, it's explained that she is one of the first androids assigned in the government's effort to improve relations between android and humans.]]
* PuppyDogEyes - Otome is fond of using these on Yoshiyuki.
* TheQuietOne - Anzu.
* RetGone - [[spoiler: Yoshiyuki in Otome and Yume's routes temporarily]]
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots - Minatsu remarks in irritation that she really doesn't need functions like muscular soreness or some sort of artificial virginal blood.
* RobotGirl - Minatsu.
* SadisticChoice - [[spoiler:Otome eventually has to choose between withering the sakura tree, causing Yoshiyuki to disappear as his existence was a result of a wish it granted, or allow it to live and continue granting malicious wishes that harmed the people of the island.]]
* SchoolIdol - Nanaka and Otome. Yes, TWO [[SchoolIdol School Idols]], in case one wasn't enough for you.
* SelectiveObliviousness - After awhile in Nanaka's route, a few people call Yoshiyuki out on not noticing [[LoveTriangle the situation]], leading the the impression that he really just doesn't want to have to choose between the two or think about it at all. It's debatable, though, due to later events in the story.
* TheSevenMysteries - One event in the game features a TestOfCourage, based on these mysteries.
* ShoutOut - The minor character [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Garrison-sensei"]]. [[WordOfGod According to the translators of the game,]] yes, there really was a character directly referencing WesternAnimation/SouthPark in the VisualNovel.
** To be specific, in the original Japanese versions, his name is displayed as a seemingly random string of kanji that made no literal sense whatsoever (think transliteration of foreign languages into Chinese, or the stuff that was pulled in Musha Gundam). The trick here is that when said string is read out loud, [[{{Mondegreen}} it SOUNDS like "Garrison"]].
* ShowWithinAShow - Anzu's play.
* SiblingYinYang - Otome is hard working, a SupremeChef, and dotes on Yoshiyuki constantly and without shame. Yume loves to be lazy and lounge around, is a LethalChef, and is {{tsundere}} toward Yoshiyuki.
* SnowMeansLove
* SpellMyNameWithAnS - Erika Murasaki's actual surname lacks an official romanization. [[spoiler: Focus Light or Forcathrite?]]
* SpiritedCompetitor - Mayuki. She enjoys Suginami's pranks because of the challenge foiling him presents and at one point challenges Yoshiyuki to a literal CookingDuel when she learns he knows how to cook.
* StepfordSmiler - [[spoiler:Sakura. She is genuinely happy most of the time, but she hides darker secrets]].
** Arguably Yuzu is one too.
* StudentCouncilPresident - Otome.
* SuperDeformed - The map choices for lunch time and after school have SuperDeformed pictures of the girl whose event will be at that location, averting one particular GuideDangIt from the first game.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial - Minatsu lies a lot, but is absolutely ''terrible'' at it, leading straight into this. Yoshiyuki eventually gets around her tsundere attitude by phrasing any requests or invitations in a way that her pride can quickly accept.
* SuspiciouslyVagueAge - Just like the prequel, the cast is 13-15 for the middle schoolers and no older than 17 with Otome. So they don't even mention what kind of school they attend, a middle school.
** [[spoiler:However, in one of the scenes in visual novel, they drank alcohol, which is only allowed for over 20 in Japanese law.]]
* TheTease - Anzu and Akane. Anzu in particular combines a talent for innuendos and knowledge of moe tropes to hilarious effect.
* TechnologyMarchesOn - In-universe example. In episode 6 of Season 1, Minatsu, a [[spoiler: highly advanced RobotGirl]], seems amazed that Yoshiyuki is able to talk on a small device known as a cellphone. Which apparently didn't exist before she was put to sleep.
* TestOfCourage - One possible event in the game.
* ThanksForTheMammary - Yoshiyuki's first encounter with Erika. It all goes downhill from there.
* ThemeNaming - The robot series. Miharu (spring) and Minatsu (summer) followed by the more robotic Miaki (autumn) and Mifuyu (winter) lines of robots.
* TheyDo - Koko and Yoshiyuki, in the first episode. [[spoiler:They break up late into the first season.]]
* ThirdActStupidity - Koko's route requires Yoshiyuki to become very, very stupid and insensitive. While neither is entirely out of character, he takes it to a whole new level.
* ThirdPersonPerson - Minatsu.
* TimeSkip - ''Da Capo II'' takes place 53 years after the events of ''Da Capo''.
* TokenMiniMoe - Anzu, though as she notes she's not as much of one as Sakura. While her [[ElegantGothicLolita clothing emphasizes it]] it turns out she's actually not ''that'' underdeveloped.
** Hilariously, Sakura is the [[OlderThanTheyLook oldest]] member of the cast, but ''still'' looks like she should be the youngest.
** And let's go to ''Plus Situation/Plus Communication'' to find [[spoiler:Aisia, yes, the one shown before.]]
* TookALevelInBadass - It's strongly implied that Junichi became a proper, fully qualified magician over the timeskip between the games. While he's apparently still not as good as Sakura, [[spoiler:he's good enough to try and fail at controlling the out of control sakura tree.]]
* TraumaCongaLine - Happens to Yoshiyuki, and to a lesser extent, Otome, in Season 2.
* {{Tsundere}} - Minatsu and Yume. Later Erika in ''Plus Situation/Plus Communication.'' Minatsu is a bit more along the lines of a [[DefrostingIceQueen classic]] tsundere; once she warms up to Yoshiyuki she stays pretty dere after starting off genuinely disliking him.
** Saying about Erika, just think of [[RieKugimiya who]] voiced her...
* TwiceShy - Koko route.
* UnwantedHarem - By the end of the second season, we have Yume, Otome, Koko, and Nanaka. That's not even counting Anzu, who ''may'' harbor feelings for Yoshiyuki.
** In the game, at least, [[spoiler: it's revealed that, yes, Anzu did have feelings for Yoshiyuki prior to the start of the story.]]
** Also [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Wataru, who pulls Yoshiyuki aside and notes all the girls in his harem.
* UnlockableContent - The Asakura sisters' endings are unlocked by completing three of the four initially available heroines' routes, and then after them, there's the [[spoiler:epilogue with Sakura.]]
** In Plus Communication it has changed a lot, where the Asakura sisters' routes are unlocked by completing two of the eight heroines' routes [[spoiler:with different second chapter except Mahiru]], but their endings are locked by [[spoiler:Sakura epilogue]]. It's still not over after that, where you still have [[spoiler:Aisia route, followed by two hidden characters]].
* UpdatedRerelease - Like its predecessor, this one has updated versions with new characters and storylines, in the form of ''Plus Situation'' for the PS2 (with no adult content) and ''Plus Communication'' for the PC (with adult content).
* {{Utsuge}} - And how!
* VolleyingInsults - Yoshiyuki's failed attempts at clearing up his bad first impression with Erika eventually degenerates to this.
* WhamEpisode - The episode where it's revealed that [[spoiler:Yoshiyuki was the result of a wish made by Sakura 10 years prior to the beginning of the series.]]
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway - Subverted by Yoshiyuki's magical sweets making ability, as mentioned under HeartIsAnAwesomePower. On the other hand, he's pretty down on his ability to see other people's dreams, since from his perspective it gets in the way of having restful sleep, not to mention that he's terrible at determining whose dreams he's seeing, especially when they're being had by people very close to him and giving away important information about their back story.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman - Maya harbors hate for all robots, because [[spoiler:her father, who developed the MU type, committed suicide due to him being pestered by the [[UnpleasableFanbase unpleasable consumers]] of his robots.]]
* WistfulAmnesia - When [[spoiler:Otome withers the sakura tree, people begin to forget Yoshiyuki, because his existence was the result of a wish made by Sakura.]]
** [[spoiler:Anzu also has difficulty remembering Yoshiyuki, but is very comfortable and familiar around him after the cherry tree dies.]]
* YankTheDogsChain - Wataru gets a love letter at the end of Nanaka's route... from a second year boy.
* YouCantFightFate - [[spoiler:Yume's visions of the future always come true no matter how she tries to stop them. However, no one said she saw ''everything'' that would happen, did they?]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair - Minatsu is blue, Nanaka and Akane are pink
* [[spoiler:YourDaysAreNumbered]] - Otome and Yume routes. Otome is visibly surprised when it turns out ''not'' to occur in one of the other routes.
* ZettaiRyouiki - Koko and Anzu are Grade A.
