* A bizarre inversion in ''OneOverZero'': So there's [[NoFourthWall never been a fourth wall]], and there's very little in the setting except a featureless plain and a bunch of tiny things who chat. Terra would very much like to fall in love with Zadok, but Terra's a lesbian earthworm and Zadok's a male grass golem. She briefly gets a personal fourth wall in order to lose the concept of lesbianism (solely an out-of-universe thing, since none of the characters are human and Terra is the only character with a metabolism), but self-deception is a turn-off for him. The philosopher of the group solves things by successfully arguing that applying the constraints of human biology to people without it is absurd. Love is therefore a function of personalities, and therefore limiting it is a violation of free will and their purpose as characters. Around ''1/0'', we call this a Tuesday.

* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'': Mitsuba and Shinoa and another school girl are shown to have feelings for Yuu and Akane is a HopelessSuitor for Mika as well. Too bad for all of them that it's implied Mika and Yuu have feelings for [[HoYay each other]] and instead focus more attention on the other. There's also another time when Yuu was encouraged by Yoichi to compliment Mitsuba in her civilian clothing. He acts disinterested but instead compliments Yoichi on his clothing.
