* WhatAnIdiot:
** Mizuki sends Kuze a "letter of challenge", urging him to meet on the school roof in an effort to get him out of his self-inflicted isolation since he discovered he suffers from a [[SoapOperaDisease terminal heart condition]]. He indeed shows up.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' She challenges him ''in words only'' to try to make him understand she really loves him and wants to be with him, despite his condition.\\
'''Instead:''' [[spoiler:Mizuki actually pulls off a surprise attack and kicks Kuze hard in the chest, telling him that he "died once" already. Sure enough, Kuze gets a heart attack shortly after.]]
** When Yuu finds out [[spoiler:that Amamiya was physically and sexually abusing his adoptive sister Yuuko with clear scarring and bruises all over her body...]]\\
'''You'd Expect:''' [[spoiler:Go to the nearest police station and report him, after all with all the bruises and scars plus her testimony he'll be locked up for good.]]\\
'''Instead:''' [[spoiler:He actually confronts him directly which ends with Yuu getting beaten and then he elopes with her.]]


** Chihiro Shindou's car accident when her sister Kei's English voice actress, Creator/BrittneyKarbowski, would actually get involved in a car crash in 2010.

* AntiClimax: [[spoiler: Yuuko's]] death in ''A Tale of Melodies'' is foreshadowed throughout as a tragedy of tragedies. When it's actually portrayed in the anime: [[spoiler: She's hit by a car after chasing a ball into the street.]] Though it could be argued that such a childish act leading to an undignified death was the true tragedy.

* {{Narm}}: The scene in episode 11 where [[spoiler: Renji and Chihiro finish their date by kissing [[TheirFirstTime and then having sex]] in the rooftop of the school]] loses quite a part of its emotion when you see [[spoiler: Chihiro]]'s clothes neatly and primorously folded on the floor, as if they were just ready for morning use. Waaaaay to distract the viewer from all of the dramatic tension there.

* FirstInstallmentWins: While fans acknowledge that ''A Tale of Melodies'' is excellent, ''A Tale of Memories'' tends to get better reviews.

* HilariousInHindsight: Caught the scene in ''memories'' episode 9 where Miyako holds a [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Big Dango Family]] phone card? Both Miyako and Nagisa would be voiced a few years later in English by Creator/LuciChristian. Both series were also license by Creator/SentaiFilmworks.

Added DiffLines:

* DieForOurShip: There is quite the hate towards Kei for getting in between Hiro and Miyako. Never mind that Kei eventually ends up with Kyousuke anyway.


* FridgeBrilliance: ''memories'': When Chihiro gets e-mails from her sister about Kei's own life, Kei writes about events that happen during the summer, when it's winter where Chihiro's side is. [[spoiler: Then comes TheReveal where you find that the Chihiro's side is living on a second Otowa. In Australia. Thus, the seasons are reversed.]]
** In ''melodies'', think back over the course of the entire game, and how each couple slowly got shoved towards figuring things out. Yuuko always brutally exposed the problems everyone had to force them to face up to things, but who gave them the crucial last-second encouragement? ''Mizuki.'' Considering their backstory, this only makes sense.
** What does "Ef" stand for? Apparently, there are plenty of songs that has "Ef" as initial, including in the Visual Novel. Eternal Feather. Emotional Flutter. Ever Forever. Euphoric Field. Ebullient Future. AndNowYouKnow.
