YMMV: Kana: Little Sister
- Cliché Storm: To the point where there are three terminally ill characters! Well, it is a Trope Maker for this kind of VN.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: And how. The first one that comes to mind is when Kana finally gets to see the ocean.
- Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Minor case, as the story is still compelling, but as noted above this game popularized many VN tropes that someone playing it now would consider overdone and cliche.
- Ship-to-Ship Combat: Averted. What little fandom exists for this game is surprisingly amiable about the idea of the main character ending up with either Kana or Yumi.
- Tear Jerker
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some fans view the new 2004 edition, which was fully voiced but had the art completely redone by a different artist, this way.
