These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Noli Me Tangere
Anvilicious: Filipinos are perpetual victims. All Spaniards are venal and corrupt. Hidden Depths is nowhere to be found.
Ho Yay: Ibarra and Elias. You know Elias is that devoted to Ibarra when he chooses to save him instead of avenging his family (which is basically his entire reason for living).
Values Dissonance: Though Rizal wrote Maria Clara as the "ideal image" of the Filipino woman, modern literary critics and historians find her as "a misfortune" from the Spanish era due to being portrayed as weak and not taking an active role.
