Book of Shadows Manga Spoiler Warning!: Book of Shadows manga follow Hinoe is seen looking though the window commenting on the atmosphere. Hinoe is then seen at the end of the chapter, feeling an evil aura, predicting the danger that her sister is about to experience. Hinoe hugs her sister, saying that everything will be alright.

Blood Drive Spoiler Warning!: Naomi rubs some players the wrong way for her excessive Tsundere tendencies, and because she murdered Seiko while under the effects of the Darkening though nowadays most have stopped hating her for the last reason. Others find her to be one of the more interesting of the main cast, and lament that her plotlines are usually overshadowed by others.
Satoshi also gets this treatment sometimes: Is he an interesting character that grows courageous in spite of the horrors that occur to him, or a bland designated protagonist that deals with his fears rather quickly?
The characterization of Ayumi in Corpse Party D2: Depths of Despair is seen as a much better portrayal than in canon. Fatal Operation is also really liked due to giving an explanation for the disappearance of Seiko's mother, Sayaka. If the title wasn't enough of a giveaway, the entire plot of the game is that all of the school students — dead or otherwise — are forced to throw together a birthday party for Sachiko. And that ends up being one of the game's least weird aspects.
In Book of Shadows, the incredibly long "Shangri-La" and short but viciously difficult "Mire" are followed by "Tooth", a short, straightforward episode with only one, very obvious Wrong End and no real risk of succumbing to Darkening. At the end of Blood Drive: Ayumi and Yoshiki survived, but Kuon and Hinoe are still dead. Also Queen has NO relation to Kuon, they're different characters. The main criticism for Book of Shadows is that none of the characters were sympathetic or likable and that all of the gore and killing lacked any meaning.
The fact that the "what if" scenarios barely changed the outcome is also a point of contention. And again in Blood Drive, with every new character aside from Kuon being manipulative at best and unrepentant murderers at worst, while every returning character except Yoshiki acts incredibly stupid.
The plot quickly becoming a generic "save the world" thing didn't helping matters. The OVA Tortured Souls got the same reaction, mostly because nearly everyone dies in overly gory and meaningless ways that served no purpose other than shock value. The live-action adaptations are also criticized for the first movie having the basic plot and ending almost like the OVA and the sequel "Book of shadows" for barely trying anything new apart from keeping Seiko alive longer, and making the already bleak ending even worse by leaving Naomi as the Sole Survivor and even then, she's heavily implied to have not have much time left.
A common complaint in the series is that, despite the multiple adaptations and sequels, all of them either Kill 'em All or only leave the characters of the original PC game alive. Die for Our Ship: Some Ayumi x Yoshiki shippers tend to bash on Azusa, due to her subtle flirting towards Yoshiki, calling him 'Knight-kun'.
Satoshi sometimes gets this to further the Neiko ship. Overlapping with Broken Base: Those that find the ending to be fitting of an Utsuge game argue that an Everybody Lives ending wouldn't have been nearly as satisfying, but the fact that the heavily advertised idea of reviving the members of the main cast who died at Heavenly Host is rejected in favor of an obvious attempt at tugging the players' heartstrings is considered the last straw for some fans, who felt like the jumbled plot could have been forgiven if the deceased characters had been revived, as the actual ending reeks of a Shoot The Shaggy Dog Story.
One of the new students introduced in Blood Covered, who only shows up for one chapter both there and in Book of Shadows before suffering death from hanging or decapitation. Her eccentric cheeriness and love for Naomi has made her one of the most popular characters, easily securing first or second in various popularity polls. She's undeniably a fan-favourite in fan-art and fanfiction ALSO. Heck, the pairing Naomi x Seiko is one of the two most popular pairings in the fandom, the other being Ayumi x Yoshiki.
Yoshiki also counts, see Unpopular Popular Character below. Blood Drive's ending for a part of the fans as despite all of the events that happened, the only achievement was to restore the memories of those that died at Heavenly Host and releasing their souls from their eternal tormentnot resurrecting them as some trailers suggested as the main point of the game, and this was at the cost of Ayumi being erased from her friends' memories except Yoshiki, who chose to stay with her.
Fans also argue that despite the fact that the survivors may have found some closure, this ending feels empty for some, as most of the survivors didn't even get to say goodbye to some of their friends especially in Seiko's case ends up leaving a sour taste in a ton of the fans' mouths. Not to mention, the fact that the Nirvana was only sealed away, not destroyed, borders on Fridge Horroras if Ayumi dies, the Nirvana will be unleashed again, making a ton of fans feel the entire efforts rather pointless.
Ascended Fridge Horror comes in when Dead Patient the events in the hospital appear to have been caused by the Nirvana only worsens the feeling. The fact that Blood Drive is supposed to be the Grand Finale of the Heavenly Host trilogy and the ending felt disappointing to so many fans reduces the status of this supposed finale.
X Seed Games 's forum has taken to calling Tokiko Tsuji one of the murdered ghost children "Gurgles". Satoshi is sometimes jokingly called Satoshit or Gary Stu. Not that most of the fandom really considers him a Gary Stu, they just find him a Vanilla Protagonist.
Heck, there are mangas Corpse Party Coupling x Anthology and Magi4-koma dedicated to the most popular pairings A part of the chapters have been fan-translated but only of Coupling X Anthologybut it's still incomplete at the time of writing this the project might have been put on hold, but fortunately, in comparison to other No Export for Youat least the raws have been uploaded.

While SatoshixNaomi does have its fans, it isn't nearly as liked as SeikoxNaomi due to between other things the fact that Seiko was killed off so soon, and that most of the fan opinions towards SatoshixNaomi moments are that they feel forced, whereas NaomixSeiko moments feel more natural.
Ayushiki, SeikoxNaomi and Mayushige are the most popular in fanart and fanfics. As a lot of fans find the endings rather unfulfilling, it's common to have fics that revive the creator's favorite deceased characters or make everybody in class get out of Heavenly Host alive.

Others center in avoiding to go to Heavenly Host in the first place. Some even take place in AUs where Heavenly Host was never created. Others have a darker take on the trope, killing off much-hated characters such as Ayumi and Yuka in favor of characters like Seiko and Mayu. Some of Sachiko's interactions with Morishige in Book of Shadows can come off as this, as she's clearly taken an interest in him due to his fascination with corpses.
Sachiko's Hysteric Birthday takes this even further with the two of them playing the romantic leads in some of the plays in chapter 2. In Blood Drive, the phantoms. They'll pop up frequently, chase you all around the school, and the talismans needed to banish them are rather rare.
How to describe most fans' reactions towards Blood Drive. And the ending is another point of contention in itself. It Was His Sled: Also, Mayu dies and her body is the one splattered in the wall. Surprisingly, other spoilers tend to be well kept. Naomi, a snappish, petty girl who embodies some of the worst stereotypes of a Tsundere The ghost children you know, the ones who cut out your tongue and stab out your eye if they catch you and killed Mayu by ramming her at high speeds into a wall become this once you find out how they died.
It turns out they aren't so bad once they get their respective body parts back. She witnessed the principal killing her mother and was killed as a result plus, the principal later went back and cut out her tongue. To keep her mother from getting lonely, she started killing children to send to her.
Eventually, she went crazy and started killing because she enjoyed it. This even applies in-universe; Sachiko spends all of Corpse Party 2U tormenting the cast in horrible ways, but they still can't bring themselves to decline the seven-year-old's request for swimming lessons.
Fans are well aware that he's a delusional, murderous sociopath, but he's a very entertaining and very attractive one that's voiced by none other than Tomokazu Sugitaso fans also love to have him on-screen. Seiko's line about buttering her pooper.
Try having a discussion that involves her at all without somebody bringing that up. Also from Seiko "Gotta grab dat ass". In Blood Drive we have from the finale: And Ayushiki because the pairing was pretty much made official in the ending- in one of the worst possible ways. X should have lived. In response, Naho holds up Once you get past how out of place it is for the series, it's pretty funny for how silly it is, despite the game playing it completely seriously.
As if the screams lacking relative emotion weren't enough, he screams one last time over the chapter title card. Nightmare Fuel page for details. Never Live It Down: In Blood Drive, Misuto's death tends to be the most remembered part about the character, due to how unintentionally ridiculous it ends up coming across.
He stands around as Satsuki's head opens to reveal her flower "mouth" and she snarls at him, eating his head. The game's title should clue you in. Has its own page. For Naomi, she is mostly paired with Seiko. Ayumi gets almost always paired up with Yoshiki. And yes, Mayu tends to be paired with Morishige. Ayumi, who is The Load for most of Blood Covered due to being possessed so oftenwhich leads to the player having to tread very carefully to avoid getting a Wrong End.
It gets to the point where Yuka, listed below, can keep it together more. What doesn't help is her increasingly bone-headed decisions from the end of Book of Shadows onward which come to a head when her completely baseless trust in Misuto ends with her unintentionally kick starting the apocalypse. She's also heavily disliked for being an Ungrateful Bitch towards Yoshiki, and even when she finally feels grateful to him, it comes off as "too little, too late" for a lot of players.
Then there's the fact that she started the whole thing by casting a spell she found on a blog without thinking about it. That by itself wouldn't be too bad, since she had no way of knowing the consequences, but her complete refusal to think about what she's doing only causes more suffering to the entire cast.
Yuka has been spoiled so thoroughly by her parents that she acts like she's six years old or younger instead of fourteen, which can't even be justified by the horrors of the school due to a flashback which shows her safe at home and acting like a toddler. Yuka is a little sister character meant for the Moe points, shoved into a game infamous for its brutality and gore, and does nothing but actively hinder the plot.
On top of that, she ends up surviving Heavenly Host, instead of characters like Seiko. In a setting as brutal as Corpse Party, she clearly has Plot Armor as her uselessness should have killed her already.
For example, Yuka will need to go "potty" at the beginning of her portion of the story, and the quest for a working toilet spans the entire story because she will outright refuse to just go in a corner. Even when her bladder is emptied against her will see Take That, Scrappy! Then there's the squicky fact that she's in love with her brother ; in one Wrong End, she will confess her feelings to Satoshi as she dies, guilting many disgusted players into lying that they love her so she can die happy although just as many refuse to do so.
Rather than being cute, Yuka is particularly hated by gamers because her pointlessness is so aggravating. Considering that the games encourage you to find other endings and you can die suddenly and for reasons that you don't understand, you'd think Blood Covered would give you the option to skip cutscenes that you've already seen.
Instead, be prepared to sit through long dialog mashing the 'next line' button. Book of Shadows mitigates this by including a fast-forward feature.

Thankfully averted with the 3DS port, which allows you to skip text by holding X, and was eventually added back to the PC version. Played straight with the phantoms and environmental damage in Blood Drive.
Players take less offense at the implementation of these ideas as the quantity. With phantoms in particular, unless the player has a talisman to extinguish them, they can be difficult to shake off as they progress through areas, due to the phantoms being relentless.
Not even hiding in a closet to escape from them is completely reliable either. Comes in a variety of flavors: Book of Shadows marked an increase in supplementary material that wasn't just adaptations of the games. By far most of it is material concerning Naho Saenoki and her supernatural dealings prior to Heavenly Host.
While it does a good job at world-building, it's not required material for the games.
