YMMV / Amnesia (Otome)

  • All There Is to Know About "The Crying Game": If you've heard of this visual novel, chances are highly likely that one of the first things you learned about it was Toma turning out to be a cage-loving Yandere which is supposed to be a major Reveal in his and Shin's routes.
  • Awesome Music: The OP for the anime, "Zoetrope" by Nagi Yanagi, definitely qualifies. It's highlighted as probably the only good thing about the anime adaptation.
  • Broken Base: The fact that Idea Factory International localized the original game. Some are happy to get another otome game in English, others wish they'd focused on another one.
  • Critic-Proof: This series was universally panned by critics and anime fans alike, yet Sentai Filmworks decided to give this one an English dub.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: With a Too Dumb to Live heroine and all the bad endings, some players find it hard to care.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Kent usually is near the bottom of Japanese fan polls, but he's quite popular with western fans.
  • Memetic Mutation: Kawaii uguu cage of love!
  • The Scrappy:
    • Heroine is considered one of the absolute worst otome game protagonists ever made due being incredibly bland and for being Too Dumb to Live.
    • Toma is pretty much considered one of the most poorly-handled yanderes in anime/game history. The fact that you have to go along with him on everything to get his Good Ending note  doesn't help at all.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Heroine and Orion trying to justify Toma's yandereness, even after locking her up in a cage. "He did all this to protect me?..." "Yeah, it's strange, but he can't help that his feelings are too strong!"[1]
  • What an Idiot!: Seriously, Heroine, if you just found out that the guy you are living with has been drugging you for days in Yandere-like fashion, don't hesitate about escaping. Get out of there! Also, if you manage to retrieve your cell phone and the guy who locked you up in a cage is out of the room, call for help right away instead of wasting the last of your phone's battery checking your messages!
  • The Woobie:
    • Ukyo. He is also an Iron Woobie.
    • Heroine! First of all, she has amnesia which, by the way, cannot be cured in an ordinary hospital, Ikki's fanclub after her, having to deal with Toma, who has genuinely good means but extremely questionable methods, and in the Joker route, the entire world out to kill her. In multiple timelines.
