YMMV / Koihime†Musou

  • Ear Worm: Every single ending theme of the anime
  • Les Yay: See here.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Quite possibly Ukitsu; Choujou in Otome Tairan might count, due to her actual origins as one of the corrupt Ten Eunuchs.
  • Moe: Almost the entire female cast.
  • Nightmare Fuel: You may be at least a bit squeamish at Bachou's appearance in episode eleven of season one...
    • Or anything Chousen and Himiko...really...but since it's Norio Wakamoto behind the former's voice....
  • Player Punch: An almost literal application for those who played the games and then get into the anime. For example Kayuu keeps saying that she's the type who lives a long life while players know she dies in almost all the scenarios and Sonsaku expressing the fact that she doesn't know what would happen if she or Shuuyuu lost each other. We do. Shuuyuu would eventually have what amounts to a nervous breakdown, cause a civil war in Koutou instigated by Ukitsu and commit suicide by burning down the palace. Plus becoming a much more bitter and cruel woman than the one we know from the anime.
  • Villain Decay: Ukitsu started off as seemingly invincible, only to be killed by Ryuubi of all people later on! Choujou also seemed very powerful and influential, but it turned out that she was just being used by Ukitsu, who ended up turning her into a rat.
    • And the biggest waste of villain potential throughout the course of the series has to be the masked, cloaked man from episode 8 of season 1. He orchestrated a successful kidnapping, and subsequently an almost successful assassination attempt. He resurfaces later on, but is unfortunately revealed to be the Fake Ryuubi. His decay is so drastic, that it's almost impossible to imagine that the two are in fact the same person.
  • What an Idiot!: En Faction
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: While Koihime has a very lighthearted and whimsical feel to it, it either directly or indirectly refers to alot of things meant for seinen. And that's not even getting into the completely gratuitous Fanservice.
  • The Woobie: The Tou faction in general and Chinkyuu's backstory in particular. Their role is to be blamed for horrible, horrible crimes that they did not commit.
