Yandere Heaven is a Japanese audio series.

Like the title suggests, this series focuses on Yandere characters who vie for their loved one's affections. Each situation provides a different scenario for the listener to be placed in.

Yandere Heaven provides examples of:

  • Brother–Sister Incest: About half of the love interests are the protagonist's brother. The only exception is Katsumi who is the listener's stepbrother.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: All of the love interests turn into this. Some start out by being jealous of the other guy, but others get jealous of other guys that communicate or even look at the listener. Just about every ending has the guy beg the listener to call only his name and to look only at him because he doesn't like other people being on the listener's mind.
  • Downer Ending: All of the endings involve the protagonist being trapped with the selected love interest for the rest of their lives, never allowed to go outside unless they're "good" and having no contact with the outside world.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Official artwork depicts the guys with glossy eyes when they go into Yandere mode.
  • Finger-Suck Healing: When the protagonist of volume 3 cuts herself with a knife, Hajime's first response is to suck on her injured finger.
  • Gilded Cage: A few of the love interests are implied to have nice homes, but the protagonist can't enjoy it as much since the guys trap them inside their houses, preventing them from leaving them for "other men".
  • He Who Must Not Be Heard: The protagonist for the first six volumes is never voiced. All of her dialogue is provided by the characters. This is done for the listener to place herself into the story more easily. This is subverted with the BLack series where the male protagonist has a voice actor.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: The twins from volume 5 are identified by their outfits and the length of their hair. Ran, the older twin, has short hair and wears a vest over a green shirt while Wakasa, the younger twin, has long hair and wears an open shirt/jacket over a dark shirt.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Their obsessive feelings lead to them going mad and conjure up some insane ideas.
    • When Kakeru tries to understand why his "nee-chan" doesn't feel the same towards him, he comes to the conclusion that her cell phone (which she hid from him) is causing some interference.
    • Atsushi assumes that the reason why the protagonist doesn't love him is because of her younger brother. To make sure that she loves only him, he goes off to kill the brother, despite her protests.
  • Mad Doctor: Takaaki turns out to be quite insane and is willing to use any kind of drug, legal or illegal, to drug or even kill his competition for your love.
  • Manipulative Bastard:
    • Sakae is a man who uses his wealth for his own purposes. In fact, he set up the breakup between the protagonist and her boyfriend by hiring a woman to seduce the boyfriend. He makes it very clear that if the protagonist tries to get away from him or call the police, he will do whatever it takes to make her his.
    • Takaaki is arguably worse than Sakae should you choose him. He found out that Sakae broke you and your boyfriend up and that he also bought out your apartment building. However, just as he's getting rid of Sakae, Takaaki thanks Sakae for doing all that so that he can claim you all for himself. So instead of living with a rich man who abused his wealth to obtain your heart, you'll be living with an insane doctor who has access to all sorts of drugs and may use whatever is necessary to keep you with him forever.
  • Murder-Suicide: Naohiro from volume 3 threatens to do this to him and his sister if his feelings aren't returned. This kinda blurs with Together in Death since Nahiro also says that he wants the two of them to die together.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Some of them either consider doing this or actually go through with this so that there's no one else keeping the listener and the character apart.
    • In the first volume, Kakeru and Atsushi hate each other so much that they contemplate killing the other man just so you will notice him more. In Atsushi's ending, he rationalizes that Kakeru is the reason why you don't love him and goes to kill your little brother.
  • No Name Given: The protagonists are never named. Usually if a brother talks to her/him, a sibling terminology will be used in place of a name.
  • Parental Incest: While Hajime is the protagonist's stepfather, he wants her to see him as a man and love him as such. One of the first things he asks the protagonist to do is to call him by his name instead of "otousan".
  • Psychotic Love Triangle: Each volume provides two guys who are in love with the listener, but are also insanely jealous of other guys and are more than willing to lock her/him up so that it can be just the two of them. The final track before the individual ones reveals just how insane the men are as they fight over the protagonist and demand that she/he choose one of them to spend the rest of her/his life with.
  • Rich Bastard: Sakae is a wealthy man who thinks he can get whatever he wants. Whenever he interacts with the protagonist, he boasts his wealth and orders her to do things like be his personal nurse and address him as "Sakae-sama".
  • Romantic Spoonfeeding: Atsushi assumes that the reason why the protagonist hasn't touched the food he made her is because she wanted him to feed her. When he tries to feed her, she slaps his hand away.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Sakae isn't afraid to use his money to fuel his own ambitions. He proudly admits that he bribed a woman to seduce the protagonist's boyfriend, which led to them breaking up. He also declares that he will bribe the police if she tries to call them.
  • Sibling Triangle: Volume 5 places the listener in one with a set of twins. The older twin initially doesn't express that much interest in the protagonist while his brother is smitten with her.
  • Spin-Off: Yandere Heaven BLack has the same concept as the original series, only with the protagonist being a guy.
  • Stalker Shrine: Wakasa from volume 5 has his wall plastered with hundreds of pictures of the protagonist. His ending reveals that he had been taking them without her knowledge.
  • Stalker with a Crush:
    • Sakae, the rich patient from volume 2 is revealed to have been stalking the protagonist for six years. This is how he knows about her attending college and her boyfriend breaking up with her especially since he arranged the breakup so that he could have a chance with the protagonist without killing anyone.
    • Even though the protagonist is serving as a maid in his own house, Wakasa has been following her around and taking pictures of her. He fondly recalls the days he took them on and what happened during them in his ending.
  • Tsundere: Sakae acts like a Type A to the protagonist of volume 2. In his ending, he gets flustered and says something like, "it's not like I wanted to talk to you! Jeez!"
  • Twincest: Naohiro on volume 3 develops an unhealthy obsession for his twin sister. He wants to be the only man she loves and he will not allow another person to come between him and his sister.
  • Why Did You Make Me Hit You?: Some of the characters blame the listener for instigating a physical or verbal attack.
    • Kakeru, for example, is implied to have hit or forced his sister to let go of her phone. In response to his violent outburst, he blames her for not giving it to him when he asked earlier.
  • World of Technicolor Hair: Some of the guys have oddly colored hair. Just to name a few, Kakeru has purple, Atsushi has dark green, Minase has silver, and Katsumi has lavender.
  • Yandere: Every character turns into this. They initially start off being affectionate towards the protagonist before becoming obsessive, controlling and jealous.
