YMMV / Kara no Shoujo

  • Alas, Poor Scrappy: Mizuhara Touko. Even her mother becomes sympathetic after that.
  • Awesome Music:
    • The opening themes of both games, "Ruri no Tori" and "Tsuki no Uro" respectively, are very beautiful, with a brilliant vocal performance by Shimotsuki Haruka.
    • "Rengoku no Hitsuji", a haunting and evocative piece from the soundtrack of the second game.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: The True endís attitude seems to imply that itís supposed to be considered at least bittersweet like True Ends usually are, but think about it. Mizuhara, Tojiko, Orihime and Toko are all dead and Reiji is alone. With closure, yes, but alone. And Shinji got away.
  • Funny Moments: Reiji getting Tsuzuriko's name right for once, only for her to launch into her "Don't call me Tojiko!" catchphrase anyway before realizing a bit too late that he didn't actually call her that this time.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The murders in both games are beyond brutal, with the victims' bodies being grotesquely mutilated.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Natsume is supposed to be a Lovable Sex Maniac comic relief character, but thanks to her constant in-your-face sexual behaviour towards other people (including her brother) who are clearly not comfortable with it and the fact that, in her H-scene, Reiji's consent is dubious at best and flat-out nonexistent at worst, she can easily come across as infuriating instead of funny and likeable.
