YMMV / Sister Claire

  • Anvilicious:
    • The comic talks a lot about LGBT issues and is usually about as subtle as a heart-attack when it does. Not helped by Oscar almost surpassing Claire as the primary focus and the endless stories about her sexuality.
    • The missing moment "Note" has Oscar going off on a rant to King Michel about supposed discrimination in not funding health care that serves people with magick. The allusion is so thinly veiled it's bordering on Author Filibuster.
  • Ass Pull: Sister Genevieve at first was disapproving at Oscar being transgender. However, after being assaulted by Catherine she, for no explained reason, apologized about how she treated Oscar and promises to support her in the future.
  • Broken Base:
    • The Toilet Humor in the first few chapters. Funny or just off-putting? Not like it matters now as those strips were re-drawn to be more tasteful.
    • The excessive focus on homosexuality and gender identity. While most fans like the character development and do praise the comic for tackling such issues, others feel these focuses have overstayed their welcome and a major stall to the Myth Arc of the story with Yamino and Ash are just beating us over the head with it by now, bordering on Author Appeal.
    • The reveal that Sister Oscar is transgender.
  • Cliché Storm: Take a clichéd messiah story, add clichéd nun cast, use clichéd bathroom humor, sprinkle in clichéd jokes, and you have Sister Claire. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
    • At first, anyway. The characters have been developed, the bathroom humor has been removed, and the messiah plot has turned out entirely differently to what was expected.
  • Creator's Pet: Oscar. Who has basically been turned into a flawless character shill, who is never presented wrong despite numerous idiotic actions and is loved by almost everyone she meets, glossing over any prejudices she might face.
    • The writer herself has stated that she doesn't like writing stories where Oscar faces conflict or prejudice since it stresses her out knowing that there are real people having to go through them.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Sister Cat.
  • Growing the Beard: The first few chapters have issues with slow or uneven pacing and a lot of low-brow, base breaking humor. Later, once the author's wife starts helping her write it, the comic's quality definitely goes up.
  • Les Yay: The author comment even lampshades it here. Also can carry into Twin Cest between Rosalie and Marie.
  • LGBT Fanbase: Has enjoyed one ever since the comic's launch.
  • Moe: Little Claire from the "Missing Moments" side-stories.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Abraham crosses it by burning down an infirmary with patients and children inside.
  • Narm: This page. It's supposed to be a tense confrontation between the sisters and a Wolf Witch, but everything comes across as extremely silly, from the little puppy dog growling at his feet, to the Wolf Witch's rather odd facial expression in the last panel.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: Many more people first heard of Yamino from the infamous "DerpyGate" scandal, which lead to a lot of demonization of both her and this comic from angry MLP Fan Dumb. Even now, when someone mentions Yamino, the first thing that tends to come to mind is DerpyGate rather than anything else she's done since.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: "Oscarine" for Oscar/Catharine.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: LGBT people deserve as much compassion and respect as their counterparts. Failing to give it to them hurts both the LGBT community and society as a whole.
  • Squick: Two words: Naked Marguerite.
    • The Twins crush on Oscar becomes a tad squicky with the reveal of them being her little sisters. And worse, Word of God says the two of them don't know their real relationship to her.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some readers, specifically older ones who read the comic since it's early days, liked the more quirky tone in the beginning and find current tone very off putting as they feel it betrayed expectations and sucked most of the fun out of the story thanks to newfound Author Appeal.
    • This didn't get any better when the updated pages were posted as said fans felt betrayed even further.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
    • Evil Cat aka Grimm and their possession of Catherine. Sputters out after they visit the healer which allowed them to be pulled apart from her and then revealed that all of their actions were because they were jealous they couldn't get close to Claire since her former incarnation, Clementine, was their former owner. A rather weak payoff to showcase their role in the grand scheme of things.
    • The whole deal that Olga and Azi had going on which would turn Olga into what she feared most if she tried to hunt Wolf Witches again. And then it turns out it was completely irrelevant because she's already something of a wolf creature. Many even wonder if the deal was just a sham to begin with.
    • Claire being the chosen one to birth the next messiah which was then re-directed into being a re-incarnation of Clementine. This was obviously a mid-story shift thanks to the Missing Moment chapters. But it was still a bit of an annoyance for some readers since it was what drove most of the plot of the comic. Admittedly Yamino did save herself a bit by doing the Atlantis chapter as foreshadowing.
  • Vanilla Protagonist: Claire is much more ordinary than the other nuns she lives with who are all very quirky in their own ways.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Despite the cute and colorful style, the comic has an edgy quality that may not be suitable for children.
  • Woobie: Claire. Her younger self, especially.
