YMMV / Yukari Is Free

  • Angst? What Angst?:
    • Many of the characters have lost their entire families to the Zombie Apocalypse and subsequent collapse of society in Japan, though remarkably few of them seem to be feeling much stress over it. Perhaps justified in Shimauu's case, as it has been implied that she had been so traumatized by the ordeal that she's simply blocked it out of her mind.
    • If Chiyosuke is guilt-ridden about accidentally killing Floaty, he's sure good at hiding it.

    • While she was pretty broken up over her father's death in Season 2, Rachel seems remarkably laid back about being separated from her mother between Seasons 2.5 and 3.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Zomgura's entire brief existence.
  • Cargo Ship: Fuuka/Ryougi's Lamborghini Reventon.
  • Character Rerailment: After the death of Sakakuro and an attempted suicide, Chihiro has begun taking antidepressants and seeing a psychiatrist in order to curb her yandere tendencies.
  • Crazy Awesome: Matsuda made Pot Brownies so potent, eating them allowed her to turn into a Tank and a Fighter Jet during the battle against Shin Chiyo.
  • Die for Our Ship: Poor, poor Yumi...
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Matsuda, Yui Morishita, Ren Tsutenpi, Naomi, Rei, Kasumi, and Shimauu, among others. This frequently leads to ascension.
  • Hollywood Homely:
    • Amber, sort of. She was originally intended to be rather plain-looking, but then other characters just kept finding her probably helps that she's socially awkward and a massive science geek.

    • Misato once lamented the fact that both her sisters were far more attractive than her, and yet she was the only one of them who was ever able to get a boyfriend.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Nai'tyrrus', if his resurrection of Tiffany to act as a mole is any indication.
  • Memetic Molester:
    • Asagi's always watching you, Shimauu.
    • See also Elesia's Alternate Character Interpretation in the discussion and Shenanigoats threads, portraying her as a closet sexual predator who took Rei into her care so she could rape her.
  • Moe:
    • When Asagi loses her contacts, she steals Gang member 122's glasses. They seem to have an interesting effect on her personality.
    • Cute Mute Woobie Rei could qualify for this as well, when she isn't being creepy.
  • Moral Event Horizon: If Daisuke hadn't crossed it by taking advantage of Ran, he definitely would have done so if his plan to deflower Rei had come to fruition.

  • MST3K Mantra: Trying to make sense of everything will drive you insane faster than the Necronomicon.
  • Nightmare Fuel: When Girl 1 and Girl 2 had their faces erased in Purgatory, they carved themselves new ones with an ice pick. The results were...not pretty.
  • Robo Ship: Chiyosuke/Floaty (a robot)
  • The Scrappy: Moto, Sakakuro, and Kyoto were all almost unanimously considered this.
  • Shipping
  • Squick: Yukari and Kyoto's relationship. See also the Kimura Gang.
  • Tear Jerker: Kagura's death in Season 3.
    • In the Discussion Threads, there are occasionally pictures of the entire cast as analyzed by certain cast members. This one, done by resident Woobie Rei Kakizaki, has a horribly tearjerking one when she gets to Kagura's Mother's picture: "Are Mom and Dad and Ran and Misato angels now too?"
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Some people's reaction when things shifted away from the first season's more or less random shenanigans over to a more plot-based format during the during the second season, and again during the third when the cast began to feature more and more side characters as opposed to just sticking to the core casts from Azumanga Daioh and 'Yotsuba&!'', as well as incorporating more serious dramatic elements.
  • Toy Ship: Miura seems to be trying to induce this with Chiyosuke and Ena.
  • Trapped by Mountain Lions: Chiyo in Purgatory and Female Gang Member in the Undisclosed Location are just two of many examples.
  • The Woobie: Torako, Steven, Sakaki, Kagura, Rei, and Ran.
