YMMV / VA-11 HALL-A

Go To

  • Base-Breaking Character: Dorothy being both the youngest-looking character in the game (although she's mentally and chronologically 24) and easily the most vulgar and open about her sex life has made some players and reviewers uncomfortable, especially as she frequently invokes paedophilia themes. Other people either don't have a problem with it or think that it's funny.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Dorothy won second place in the popularity contest by a large amount, losing only to Jill (who won by a landslide).

  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Jill and Dana, which might be canon, as stated below. When kiririn51 posted this picture, captioned "waiting for her date..." many commented that the date in question is most likely Dana.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Is notably very big in Japan, to the point where physical copies for the Vita were printed and a bar actually served drinks from the game.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • Getting the Good Ending where Jill and Gaby manage to come to terms with Lenore's death while drinking a toast to her memory, finally allowing Jill to move on. The last still also implies she and Dana are now a couple as they prepare to take a vacation together
    • Virgilio's endings: Virgilio, no longer Obfuscating Stupidity, opens up a curry stand and reveals definitively to Jill that he was the White Knight who saved Sei and Stella (who later join Jill for lunch) from a corrupt superior as children.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Stella's full name, Stella Hoshii, translates to "Stella Star," the same name as the heroine of the 1970s Sci-Fi film Starcrash.
  • Tear Jerker: The revelation of Lenore's death is a hard scene to sit through. It comes out of nowhere in what seems like a normal shift (to the point that the music stops playing as soon as Gaby states what happened), and both Jill and Gaby are broken up about it, yelling at each other and shifting the blame between them. Made worse by the clear grief Jill goes through in the following days, pelting herself for being such a "piece of shit" and not apologizing to Lenore for their nasty breakup, and only letting up on herself after a talk with Sei and Stella at the bar and a night of cuddling with Dorothy.
