Compare this series to {{Creator/Konami}}'s ''VisualNovel/DancingBladeKatteNiMomotenshi'' series, released in the same year as the first four ''Yarudora'' games.
Also compare to ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'', which takes the idea of an Interactive Anime to its obvious conclusion. (As well as having two DLC which play out exactly like Yarudora.)

Unlike those two titles though, the ''Yarudora'' games play as a [[ChooseYourOwnAdventure complex branch-system]] VisualNovel. At various points of the game, the player will have to choose between three options when prompted to answer a question by another character, or when making a move. The player can take all the time he needs to answer, but depending of the choice made, [[EventFlag flags]] will (or will not) be raised, and the string of flags you've raised throughout the game will determine which routes you'll go and, consequently, which Ending you'll get. Upon finishing a playthrough, you get the possibility to watch it in the "Replay Mode", like if it was a drama or an OVA (hence the series' title and motto).
