YMMV / Nippon Ichi

  • Awesome Art: No matter how old their games go back, the company employs a cute art style and expressive sprites that gives their work a distinctive look that avoids the usual problems of Play Station RPGs.
  • Broken Base: After thirteen long years, Makai Wars has finally been announced...as a Mobile Phone Game. This announcement has left many long time fans disappointed as they wished Asagi's game was a console or handheld game like her predecessors. The fact that Japanese developers, including Nippon Ichi, have a history of not localizing their mobile games and the heavy promotion of Disgaea main characters, leading to fears of Asagi being overshadowed in her own game, doesn't help. Still, there are fans who remain optimistic regardless, especially with Nippon Ichi president Sohei Niikawa saying that they will eventually develop a proper Makai Wars console game. Others feel that because Asagi is not getting a full-fledged console or handheld game like her predecessors, this will allow Nippon Ichi continue the infamous Hostile Show Takeover schtick, with her fighting to instead get a proper console or handheld game.
  • Cliché Storm: In full force concerning Gust, IF, and Hitmaker games.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Every. Single. Game. Soul Nomad and the Disgaea series take the cake.
  • Game-Breaker: All their Turn-Based Strategy games actively encourage munchkinism, intentionally letting you power up weapons and characters enough to One-Hit Kill anything in the game.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The Makai Wars live event concert had two. One was finally announcing that Asagi's game was now in the planning stages and thanking all who supported her Asagi Fan Club, which reached over 10,000 followers. The second was the final song. What's the best way to thank the audience and all the fans for supporting Nippon Ichi? By having every performer come on stage and sing Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure's "Thank You".
  • Moe: Nippon Ichi loves using this trope; Flonne and Marona stand out the most. note 
  • Nightmare Fuel: Quite a few things, many of which are probably compounded by the cute 2D-sprite graphics.
