YMMV: Uta No Princesama
  • Awesome Music: The music is composed by Elements Garden, and some of the tracks definitely apply, like "CRYSTAL TIME".
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Cecil's appereance in the first season. Only Haruka meets him, and he's never mentioned again until he comes back to join the Master Course in the second.
    • Also happens in the main game's routes (except his own): he appears in December to give some advice to Haruka, and later dissapears for the rest of the route with no explanation.
    • The second season's ending. Everyone floating in the sky and reaching space.
  • Broken Base: For some fans of the original game the anime dumbifies the characters and loses the spirit of the original. However, there are also many fans who knew the franchise thanks to the animated series, and who prefer watching the guys interacting with each other than engaging in romance with Haruka.
  • Die for Our Ship: Haruka is a girl in an otome game. Three guesses as to what the rabid yaoi fans do to her.
  • Ear Worm: "Maji LOVE 1000%".
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Ringo.
    • Kira from HEAVENS.
    • Out of the main six guys Natsuki seems to be the most popular, if fanart is any indication.
    • Out of the senpais, Ranmaru and Ai.
  • Ho Yay:
    • Plenty. Couplings include Ren/Masato, Natsuki/Shou, Otoya/Tokiya, etc.
    • The roommates are MUCH more often paired with each other than Haruka in fanworks. Probably helps that Ren/Masato and Natsuki/Shou are also Childhood Friends.
    • Ren/Masato could also be considered Foe Yay.
  • Nightmare Fuel - Some people find the heroine's eyes to be creepy.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Haruka. Considering she's the heroine of an otome game, she already has at least six good-looking guys after her; she can be paired with Otoya, Tokiya, Masato, Ren, Syo, Natsuki, Cecil, Hyuuga, Ringo, Reiji, Ranmaru, Camus, Ai... and the list goes on.
  • Les Yay: Haruka gets REALLY happy when Tomochika visits her.
  • One-Hit Wonder: In universe, Shining Saotome. He had one best-selling single, "Wo Ai ni", before retiring and funding Saotome Productions and the academy.
  • The Scrappy: Haruka, for fans of the anime (mainly disliked for her generic personality) and Cecil for both game and anime fandoms.
    • The leader of Heavens as soon as his group appeared.
    • The senpais in Debut. Rescued from the Scrappy Heap after Broccoli made them the main characters in All Star.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: After Debut 's dissapointment, nobody thought that All Star would become a game as good as the original. Starring the senpai, no less.
  • Uncanny Valley: Haruka's eye colour, to some.
    • The reactions to STARISH's songs are quite... interesting, to say the least. Mainly Saotome's ones.
    • Mitsuo. A 14-year-old voiced by Norio Wakamoto? What the hell was Broccoli thinking?
