YMMV / Sakura Wars

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Here.
  • Ear Worm: You try getting Geki!Tei out of your head. Bonus points if the dance has become reflexive. Yes, there is a dance. It even shows up in the manga as an occasional joke.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Ciseaux is probably the only Sakura Wars 3 villain known outside Japan thanks to his status as a Recurring Boss in Project X Zone.
  • First Installment Wins: Note the amount of attention the first game and the Teikokukagekidan get in terms of adaptations and even just information on the main page. On the other hand, V is the only game to get its own page (thanks to it being the only one released in America), and Erica and Gemini both get to be part of the main cast in both installments of Project X Zone.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Just try and play the part in So Long, My Love where The Star Division members are confronted by their dark selves without thinking of Persona 4.
  • Les Yay: In the first game, Tsubaki has a crush on Maria, as shown by the Let's Play referenced below. Several other examples exist.
  • Moe: Most of the main female cast you can romance is this, but some stand-out examples include Erica and Rikaritta/Rosita.
  • Most Annoying Sound: The sound of trust points dropping, especially in sequence.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Python, the true form of Karuchera from the third game.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: While not as bad as what happened with the Tengai Makyou series (another franchise created by Ouji Hiroi/Hiroshi Adachi), the selling point of this franchise was playing a game that felt like watching an interactive anime series, especially in the 90s. Now, the games and the concept look dated compared to many other games that took the concept and expanded upon it.
  • Superlative Dubbing: The Ecole de Paris OVA
  • Tough Act to Follow: Let's say Ouji Hiroi's career took a serious hit after the franchise was finished (along with Tengai Makyou), since he hasn't been able to create another successful game or franchise again. The last game he worked was an Otome Game for girls which is basically a Follow the Leader version of Hakuouki and it's even more obscure than his previous works. On the other hand, this was averted with the rest of Red Entertaiment, since they're still making successful games, like Valkyria Chronicles and Gungrave.
  • What An Idiot: YMMV a lot on NISA for selling the fifth game with no sure degree of success in the same month that Final Fantasy XIII came out.
    • On the other hand, it did get a lot of good reviews including an award from IGN.
  • The Woobie: Hanabi. Her fiance died on their wedding day and Hanabi, for a year after his death, visited his grave every day.
