YMMV / XBlaze

Go To

  • Broken Base: The fact that the games have no narration or description with all the text being dialogue. Word of God is that they wanted the games to feel like an anime so all of the action is done with the sprites and CGs. Some people like this, feeling that it is more natural and reads better. Others would have preferred narration more like a traditional Visual Novel, saying that even the fairly dynamic sprites aren’t enough detail for the action and citing that BlazBlue does have narration that doesn’t take away from the pacing.

  • Captain Obvious Reveal: WHAT! You're telling me that Me and Little Sister are younger versions of Nine and Celica? I never would have guessed, what with them looking exactly the same, having the same voice actresses, having the same personalities, Me and Nine having the same preference for fire magic, Little Sister and Celica having the same ability to nullify seithr, and Me and Little Sister appearing when Nine and Celica are Amane-fied.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • You know Sech's a bastard when you find out that he murdered his father, and that he tried to murder his sister, Kuon.
    • While Unomaru was evil beforehand, Lost Memories revealed that in order to awaken Hinata as the Embryo he savagely beat her as revenge for her sabotaging the creation of the T-system 10 years ago, which makes it really hard to believe there is any good in him being a Well-Intentioned Extremist.

  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: The ninth Es-N Unit. Despite surviving the events of Code Embryo and being taken in by Mei to work alongside her and Touya, she only gets a single mention in Lost Memories. She easily could have been inserted into the final battle at the very least, just to do something with her.
  • What an Idiot!: Seriously Magic Guild? How could resurrecting a super-powered Serial Killer possibly go wrong? Oh wait, he could kill your entire top brass and escape to terrorize innocent people again. Oops.
  • Woolseyism: While Little Sister is a direct translation of Imouto, Me and Watashi is a little different. Watashi is a polite first-person pronoun that most directly translates to “I” since Japanese does not have a distinction between a subject pronoun like I and an object pronoun like me. The translators went with Me because, while not a direct translation, an object pronoun makes more sense for a proper name and sounds more natural.
