YMMV / Sola

  • Counterpart Comparison: with AIR, With which Sola shares the sky as a common theme, cursed romance and events in the distant past as a prehistory. Moreover, both stories have Bitter Sweet Ending, and their authors are both related to Key/Visual Arts.
  • Les Yay: Between Matsuri and Aono. It turns into Foe Yay towards the end.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Matsuri's power to make things rot. She uses it on Takeshi, causing his skin and bones to degrade.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite the fact that her actions actually led to the death of Matsuri and the "transformation" of her brother into a paper puppet, Aono does not receive any real punishment except for a morally difficult attempt to learn how to live as an ordinary person. At the same time, her only girlfriend and younger brother are dead, although the manga hints at Esoteric Happy Ending for them.
  • Ending Aversion: The main characters are dead after the heroic self-sacrifice, and the formal villain of the show remains to live like an ordinary person? Not surprisingly, some of the audience was against this.
