YMMV: Project A-Ko
  • Base Breaker: C-ko, to an extent at least.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Pretty much the entire soundtrack to the original film.
  • Die for Our Ship: C-ko is a victim of this at times, especially with A-ko/B-ko shippers. Kei also falls victim to his in the hands of Yuri Fans.
  • Fangirl: C-ko.
  • Fanon: Although the identity of A-Ko's parents is just a Shout-Out in the series, Fan Fic based on this series almost always sets it somewhere in The DCU.
  • Foe Yay: A-Ko and B-Ko.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Lots of them.
  • Les Yay: Sort of. In the original film, B-Ko seemed to have a rather ardent fixation on C-Ko, which was made clear in a scene in which B-Ko, bathing in a giant Roman bath, touches her breast as she thinks about C-Ko; while the lines in both the original Japanese and the dub are ambiguous in their meaning, the implication is clearly there, and is likely a holdover from its hentai origins (see Bleached Underpants on the main page). B-Ko's...affection for C-Ko was toned down in the sequels, and practically non-existent in A-Ko the VS.
    • It does arise again in one of the direct sequels, as the main characters each interrupt class in turn with their Did I Just Say That Out Loud? excitement over their spring vacation plans: B-Ko's plans apparently involve "one night of passion with C-Ko".
  • Moe: Assuming you don't hate her guts, C-ko could invoke this.
  • Porting Disaster: The original DVD release of the Movie. The master had degenerated and it's nearly unwatchable (the Laser Disc and tape versions were fine). CPM eventually released a Special Edition (completely remastered, it's the yellow cover one), which is great, but hard to find and hideously expensive.
  • The Other Darrin: In the Dub, A-ko was originally voiced by Stacey Gregg. Teryl Rothery voiced her from the second movie onward.
  • The Scrappy: C-ko has a healthy hatedom, with some (at least) fans believing that she's a Creator's Pet and/or Canon Sue. Kei does too, to a lesser extent.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Miss Ayumi. You just told A-ko and B-ko to fight in the classroom. Have you forgotten that B-ko uses Powered Armor with Macross Missile Massacre missles?
  • Woolseyism: C-ko's voice is of a lower pitch in the dub, which some have taken as an improvement over the Japanese version. Becoming an Exposition Fairy is a lot better than her simply shouting "Youhou" ad naseum.
