** At the beginning of the series, Setsuna exclusively refers to Konoka as [[{{Ojou}} Ojousama]], while Konoka calls Setsuna the much more informal and cutesy 'Secchan', admonishing her to refer to her as 'Kono-chan'. This represents the way Setsuna tries to keep her distance from Konoka, believing her to be above the simple peasant that Setsuna is, and their slowly growing friendship ([[SchoolgirlLesbians and more]]) is demonstrated by Setsuna becoming increasingly willing to say 'Kono-chan'. * Near the end of the first ''WeissKreuz'' anime series, Aya conveys his gratitude to Tomoe Sakura for her efforts in protecting his sister by telling her his real name, Ran. Following this conversation, Sakura ''[[SaveTheDayTurnAway never sees Aya again]],'' but his avoidance is [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies for her own protection]].

* In ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'', following their official defection from the Earth Alliance military, [[AcePilot Mu la Flaga]] significantly makes a point of calling Murrue Ramius "Murrue-san" instead of "Captain." The two of them lay the WillTheyOrWontThey to rest in the following episode and continue to call one another by name instead of by rank for the rest of the series.

* Immediate use of the FirstNameBasis is very common for characters who are very (and we mean ''very'') outgoing and friendly. Miyako of ''HidamariSketch'' does this when the circumstances of her and Yuno's first meeting are shown in the second series, almost straight away asking Yuno to call her "Miya" and running through a number of possible nicknames for Yuno until she settles on "Yunocchi". Then [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship they have a bath together]].

* Tamaki from ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' insists on being on first name basis with Kyoya from almost the moment they meet.

* In ''JunjouRomantica'', Nowaki addresses his long-time lover Hiroki Kamijo as "Hiro-san". After being together for some time, it starts to bother him that Hiroki's friends address him simply as "Hiroki", but when ''he'' tries it, Hiroki yells at him. After much angst and miscommunication, Hiroki reveals the reason why he prefers Nowaki to call him "Hiro-san": because Nowaki is actually the ''only'' person who calls him "Hiro-san". "I've got a special name I'm called, and there's only one person in the world allowed to call me that." Awwww.

* In ''MaiOtome'', most of the characters who [[LastNameBasis used last names on each other]] in MaiHime now use first names, and use titles when formality is required. Arika tends to do so quite often, using first names on people such as the President of Airies and ''the Queen of Windbloom''.

* The thirteenth episode of ''TigerAndBunny'' ends with [[spoiler:Barnaby calling Kotetsu by his name for the first time. Kotetsu still calls him [[EmbarrassingNickname Bunny]] though]].

* In ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', Natsuki and Mai aren't on good speaking terms when they first meet, and address each other as "[[HeyYou you]]" and "[[LastNameBasis Kuga]]-[[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics san]]", respectively. A few episodes after they decide [[TeethClenchedTeamwork working together is better than fighting each other]], they start exclusively using each other's first names.

* Toyed with in ''Manga/LuckyStar''. Konata finds that Kagami doesn't really have a nickname others can call her with (apart from occasionally "Kagamin"). In a fit of otaku-humor, Konata runs through several variants, until Kagami, in irritation, orders her to use "Kagami-sama" (very formal, respectful, and hinting at romantic feelings -- Sylphiel's "Gourry dear" in the dub of ''TheSlayers'' was "Gourry-sama"). Konata does so, embarrassing her friend in the middle of lunch. They go back to the norm quickly.

* In ''{{Simoun}}'', the fact that Angulas ''didn't'' say Aer's name at one point was a plot point... as, of course, was the moment when she did. And in the final episode, Yun happens to say Dominura's name MeanwhileInTheFuture while thinking of her.

*** In ''Audioplay/StrikerSSoundStageX'', Ginga suggests that Runessa refer to her by her first name so that she doesn't get confused as to whether she's referring to her, her sister Subaru or her father. Runessa does likewise, noting that her last name is fairly common.
