YMMV: Amagami
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In the game, Tsukasa was the only girl who saw through Risa's lies. In the anime, she fell for it just like everybody else.
    • Also, Risa never apologized to the other girls for her actions in the game.
  • Author's Saving Throw: Rihoko's story continuation in Amagami SS+ where her and Junichi finally get together has brought a lot more appreciation towards Rihoko's arc nowadays seeing how the fanbase went ballistic knowing Rihoko lost out in her own arc in the first Amagami season.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: The... unusual kissing scenes tend to take up much of the discussion of the show, whereas it's supposed to be deeper than that. Viewers from certain parts of the Internet were on hand to contrast the different factors of the show's appeal (spoiler warning).
    • So far, these scenes are: Junichi getting on all fours like a dog and kissing the back of Haruka's knees, and Junichi going down on Kaoru's navel.
    • Sae's arc takes a slightly different turn on this and has doctor fish feeding and tickling her feet.
    • A bit too early to say if it's all what we're going to get for Nanasaki's arc, but Junichi and she get a weird hallucination where she's a bowl of ramen and she's saying how he will "eat [her]", which ends with him kissing her finger. It's short and weird, and later in the park they get a conventional kissing scene. Truth be told, it's a bit disappointing.
      • While not as... unconventional as the memorable kissing scenes of the first two arcs, the last episode of Nanasaki's arc has them do a naked onsen kiss. Definitely better than the previous episode's offerings.
    • The second OVA had some nice intimate moments: in Nanasaki's arc, he puts his hands in her skirt pockets and tickles her there, and in Rihoko's arc, we find out that she has very ticklish feet.
  • Ear Worm/Stupid Statement Dance Mix/Voice Clip Song: Miya's Can Can.
    • Taken Up to Eleven when they decided to make an Osu! mode on it. Not only is it too fast to follow, it is just fricking hard to pull off.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Miya's popularity among certain groups of fans far outweighs her screen time. Due in part to her voice actor. Also for some, due to more squickworthy reasons.
    • At certain parts of the internet, Kaoru is actually pretty popular (and already was long before the anime). So popular, a mod broke the image size limit right here.
    • Hibiki might also count in a lesser degree. Aside from not being a main character, she has some fans and a healthy amount of fanart. She also has three specific episodes in Various Artist which are quite a lot for a side character for Haruka and Ai.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: A lot of fans are already raging hard enough to say that Rihoko's arc never happened.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the bath, Kaoru ponders her new feelings for Junichi and thinks he hasn't changed while she has. But (in the anime, at least) she's wrong, since Junichi has been having at least sexual thoughts about her.
    • Later, out of the blue Junichi asks Kaoru if she has someone she likes; she refuses to answer and asks him the same question, to which Junichi just replies "no". While this scene illustrates their attitudes at this point of her arc, it's also made funnier/poignant by the foreknowledge that Junichi isn't exactly being honest.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: Rihoko.
  • Ho Yay: Junichi gets his fair share with Umehara. Between claiming to share a 'Lover's Parfait' with Umehara on a date with Haruka, and the two of them becoming the protagonists in a Yaoi manga by Sae, one has to wonder. Never mind that in another Haruka event, Haruka competes against a man, who, on the condition of his victory, gets to take Junichi on a date.
  • Hype Backlash: Lots of fans went into the anime thinking that it would adapt the best route of all the girls (see Adaptation Distillation on the main page). But after getting only one arc adapted faithfully and the others a mish-mash of routes and original content, some even getting CENSORED outright, fans are starting to get irritated.
  • Internet Backdraft - Rihoko. She lost in her own arc. Fans were not pleased.
  • Les Yay: Tons with Hibiki, occasionally with Ai as well. Even Miya isn't safe, as she gets glomped at one point due to Haruka being overcome by the sheer moe Miya was exuding at the time.
  • Memetic Hair: Kaoru "Sex Hair" Tanamachi
  • Memetic Mutation: What the hell are they playing?
  • Moe: Sae's Ending Theme song.
    • And again with her image song.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: Junichi's younger sister Miya's Nishishishishi~!
  • The Woobie: Kaoru's soft-spoken friend Keiko. She confesses to a guy and waits a month for his answer. Instead, the guy just asks for a kiss. She turns to Kaoru for advice, who then recruits Junichi for a male perspective. Junichi suggests writing a letter requesting a proper reply. Keiko spends a lot of time writing the letter, only to have the guy and his cronies pass it around and laugh at it the next day. Kaoru does not take this well. To be fair, said guy and friends get a calm but stern reprimand from Tsukasa, and they're shown reflecting on their actions.
