YMMV / Kannazuki no Miko

  • Broken Base: The fandom is split on whether Chikane's rape of Himeko is justified in story and Chikane truly had no other option , or whether it's a deplorable case of Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female, to the point where it caused a bit of an Edit War on the latter's trope page.
  • Die for Our Ship: Poor Souma.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Chikane. While her actions can be considered justified instory, some fans are are all too eager to excuse her for her very depraved actions, while she herself seems to think she's far beyond redemption.
  • It Was His Sled: The reincarnation deal and Chikane raping Himeko. Arguably All There Is to Know About "The Crying Game".
  • Memetic Mutation: The ending image with Himeko embracing Chikane has been parodied oh so many times with other couples replacing them. It has been said that a yuri ship is not official until someone draws them in a "miko embrace". Heck, sometimes the image shows up in-universe, like it did Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Some people believe Chikane crossed it when she raped Himeko.
  • Narm: The scene in which Chikane slays the followers of Orochi becomes hilarious when one notices that Nekoko the Cat Girl has an arrow in the ass. It's even more awkward when one sees that Corona has an arrow on her boob... when few minutes before Nekoko had compared her chest disfavorably with Chikane's.
    • And right before that, Girochi attempts to restrain Chikane in chains... and all the Gainaxing she displays as she's "trapped" distracts the viewer.
  • Wangst: Reiko wants to destroy the world because the manga of her dreams isn't successful, or simply out out of bitterness that her manga/anime got screwed by Executive Meddling. Either way, it's not a very good reason, especially when compared to the other necks' Freudian Excuses.
    • For some people, Chikane's gayngst comes off as her being incredibly selfish than a "tortured woman in love". Specially when she whines to herself about being in love with Himeko and feeling impure, but still drapes herself all over an unnamed girl from the archery team - which some viewers saw as both creepy and hypocritical.
