YMMV / Snow White and Seven Dwarfs

Go To

  • Foe Yay Shipping: Izumi and Amagiya, who fight in a way that involves a fair amount of Clothing Damage, with Amagiya never quite letting go of his grudge towards Izumi for most of the series and Izumi intending to reunite with Amagiya in the afterlife. If the (limited) amount of fanworks is any indication, they're the most popular ship among the fandom.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Takeru and Fujimaru basically predicting one of the main spoilers of the series: that Kuroyuki is immortal, making their nickname of "old hag" for her surprisingly accurate. While Fujimaru may have known, there's no way Takeru could've.
  • Iron Woobie: In a series of Determinators, this should be obvious.
    • Takeru. By the end of the Shibuya arc, even his optimism begins to take a few cracks, though he ultimately holds himself together.
    • The Ushio brothers, who know they're going to die soon, but choose to make the most out of their lives while they can instead of moping over their inevitable deaths.
  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Fujimaru is initially one of these, before dropping the Jerkass part and moving into general Woobie territory. Eventually, he graduates into an Iron Woobie.
    • Amagiya towards the end of the series, as his backstory is revealed.
  • Magnificent Bitch: Kuroyuki is utterly despicable, but you have to give kudos to her for being composed and competent through it all.
  • Moe: Shirayuki is generally agreed to be the cutest thing ever.
  • Moral Event Horizon: You could argue when exactly Kuroyuki crossed this, but she definitely has at some point.
    • Chronologically, experimenting on her own daughter pre-series is this.
    • In terms of the present, however, her telling Takeru to roll over and give up makes it clear that she knows that she's no saviour. It's also the moment where Takeru decides that she has to be taken down, and his will never wavers from there.
  • Advertisement:
  • No Yay: Kuroyuki and Uzuki, once it's revealed that Uzuki is effectively Brainwashed and would not have served Kuroyuki otherwise, turning their sexual relationship into abuse/rape on Kuroyuki's part.
  • Stoic Woobie:
    • Ken, who outright admits that he was doing his best to accept his inevitable death without feeling anything over it.
    • Izumi, who hides his issues very well and only shows any hints of them when sedated and in the finale, where he starts to let the mask falter.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: If Akane didn't refer to himself as "boku", it might've been difficult to tell that he's a guy.
  • The Woobie: A number of characters classify, but aside from those already mentioned, Shirayuki is the most prominent example.

How well does it match the trope?
