* DieForOurShip: There is quite the hate towards Kei for getting in between Hiro and Miyako. Never mind that Kei eventually ends up with Kyousuke anyway.
* FirstInstallmentWins: While fans acknowledge that ''A Tale of Melodies'' is excellent, ''A Tale of Memories'' tends to get better reviews.
* HarsherInHindsight: Viewers who feel uncomfortable with Kuze and Mizuki's MayDecemberRomance may even feel more uncomfortable when they learn that Kuze's English voice actor, Creator/IllichGuardiola, was arrested in May 2014 for having a relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
* HilariousInHindsight: Caught the scene in ''memories'' episode 9 where Miyako holds a [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Big Dango Family]] phone card? Both Miyako and Nagisa would be voiced a few years later in English by Creator/LuciChristian.
* {{Moe}}: The amnesia-fueled, eye-patchy kind.
* {{Narm}}: The scene in episode 11 where [[spoiler: Renji and Chihiro finish their date by kissing [[TheirFirstTime and then having sex]] in the rooftop of the school]] loses quite a part of its emotion when you see [[spoiler: Chihiro]]'s clothes neatly and primorously folded on the floor, as if they were just ready for morning use. Waaaaay to distract the viewer from all of the dramatic tension there.
* TheWoobie: Damn near everybody, but Chihiro and Yuu get it the worst.
