YMMV / Junjou Romantica

  • Angel/Devil Shipping: The Romantica pair, with Usagi being the 'devil' since he is very perverted and possesive towards Misaki, and Misaki being the 'angel'.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Misaki. Some fans wonder if he is truly in love with Akihiko, whether he has been accepting the fact that he's in love with him and the reasons for his denial and oblivious attitude about his feelings.
    • No one really knows what Tsumori wants with either Hiroki and/or Nowaki.
  • Better on DVD: No more shadows!
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Miyagi, straight up until that point, suddenly grabbing a heartbroken Hiroki and trying to kiss him before Nowaki stepped in. Never showed any interest in him before, and it's never mentioned again afterwards.
    • Miyagi is normally pretty grabby and in other ways overly familiar with Hiroki, though. He just likes to tease his kohai.
    • In a bit of Fridge Brilliance, Miyagi's wife left him only a month ago and seeing Hiroki's state, thinking he was just dumped, could be considered him trying to find solace with a fellow broken heart.
  • Base Breaker: Half part of the fandom are not fond with Misaki, due to his Tsundere streak to Usagi, his obliviousness when it comes to love and his feelings and he also prone to get into troubles in almost every chapter. While the other half of the fandom loves him due to his kind-hearted and selfless personality.
    • The Terrorist pair also shaping to this, as one of the reason is the huge age gap of Miyagi and Shinobu.
  • Ear Worm: Kimi Hana is very addicting song indeed, with all meaning of to never let go off your hand.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Nowaki, the most innocent, adorkable Seme ever.
    • Shinnosuke Todo, who appears later in the manga and quickly bonds with Misaki over their shared love over the manga "The Kan!". He is found likable by all fans for his supportive and kind personality, and his Adorkable nature, along with being one of the very few men in the series that does not hold any attraction of the romantic or sexual kind towards Misaki.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Isaka. Repeatedly. Especially when it comes to Akihiko, Haruhiko and Misaki, although there's a very good reason he's the director of Marukawa publishing.
  • Memetic Molester:
  • Memetic Mutation: Shinobu and cabbages.
  • Moe: Misaki, Misaki's nephew Mahiro, Nowaki, and Shinobu in certain moments.
  • The Scrappy: Fans are not fond with the existence of Mizuki, even for a second.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: The whole series, and Junjou Minimum too.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Misaki. Poor the clueless viewers who thought this series was just an average romance one especially to the homophobics.
  • The Woobie: Misaki. It's hard not to feel bad for him after finding out about his past. He once again become this while dealing with Usagi-chichi and Mizuki.
