YMMV: Caribbean Blue
  • Broken Base: The ending has pretty much split the fanbase in two. Some love it or at least accept it, claiming that Kimi's fate was properly foreshadowed, that it was what the entire story was building up to, and that the story really couldn't end any other way. (especially since the final battle is based heavily off of Thor and Jormungar's Mutual Kill in Norse Mythology) Others hate it, claiming it completely contradicts the theme and tone of the story, that the manner of Kimi's death comes off as cruel and/or meanspirited, and that it portrays a Family-Unfriendly Aesop of You Can't Fight Fate.
    • Earlier than that, Maya's Face-Heel Turn was also a point of contention for many. The supporters saw it as the (somewhat) logical conclusion of a young, naive girl whose entire worldview has been shattered by a newcomer, and her desperate attempt to restore the status quo. Detractors claim that the logic is flimsy and that it flanderized Maya's character flaws.
  • Jumping the Shark: The final few arcs of the comic are incredibly divisive. From the anticlimatic showdown with The Dragon, to Maya's Face-Heel Turn and the logic behind it. The end is another can of worms entirely.
