YMMV / Style Savvy

  • Contested Sequel: Trendsetters is basically the same as the first game, but with updated graphics and a few added content. Usual complains are It's the Same, Now It Sucks and the lack of option for your character to romance anybody, despite the large number of male characters (although the Japanese version does have a patch that allows you to design a male character as you desire and take pictures with him on dates)
  • Ear Worm: Pick any song sung by the three starlets in Styling Star. It WILL get stuck in your head.
  • Even Better Sequel: Fashion Forward has been praised for this, having much more variety over the previous games.
    • Styling Star has also been praised for the new story elements, fleshed out characters and fantastic music.
  • Girl-Show Ghetto: Is a rarely discussed Nintendo IP due to being a girly game about fashion, though it actually sells decently well. Many people even complained about how a "shovelware" game got onto the Wii U's Virtual Console instead of more "worthy" titles.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks: Main complaint about Trendsetters.
  • Les Yay: Many fans of Styling Star love to ship Rosie with Camilla.
  • Moe: Many of the female characters are quite endearing. Sophie from Fashion Forward and Rosie and Alina from Styling Star are especially notable examples.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: The first game had a very awkward interface that forced the player to hold their DS vertically. Luckily, later games fixed this.
    • Fashion Forward's colour finding mechanic. Especially when players had to wait tediously for certain events to finally unlock a colour.
