YMMV / Akai Ito

  • Awesome Music: Most of the soundtrack could qualify, but special mention goes to the vocal versions of "Itsuka no Hikari" (Yumei's theme) and "Utakata" (Nushi's theme).
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Senba Uzuki. Kei and Uzuki were voted as the No. 1 couple in an official poll.
  • Genius Bonus: Whoever wrote the story for this game must have majored in Japanese Mythology.
  • Ghost Shipping: Choose one: Yumei or Nozomi. However, in the Happy Ending of her route, Yumei becomes human again.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Come on, Obana?
  • Stoic Woobie: Tsudura. Partially averted: she's a Genki Girl most of the time, until she is reminded of her responsibility as the leader of the Wakasugi exorcists.
    • Uzuki, too. But she is more on the stoic side and less on the woobie side. Also, unlike Tsudura, she never snaps. except in the Blood Moon ending.
  • Tear Jerker: Most of the endings are depressing, though Uzuki's infamous "Blood Moon" ending were she kills herself over guilt for what she accidentally did to Kei is by far the worst example, closely followed by Yumei's bad ending.
