** For example, see the early issues of Creator/JohnByrne's run on WestCoastAvengers. During the "Vision Disassembled" arc hints are dropped about the Great Lakes Avengers. When the GLA take the main stage, you start seeing subplots about the Scarlet Witch's potential abduction. During all of this, the Witch's "imaginary children" plotline is given a few panels each issue.

* Happens in the Kyoto Animation version of ''{{Kanon}}'', too.

to:

* Happens Utilized by several anime adaptations of visual novels, notably ''{{VisualNovel/Kanon}}'' and ''{{VisualNovel/Air}}''. A justified use, since it's a good way to merge several characters' nonconvergent individual stories from the games into a series that gives everyone a chance in the Kyoto Animation version of ''{{Kanon}}'', too.spotlight.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'' - WordOfGod is that each season is structured to introduce a new PlotArc in the first several episodes, while resolving the PlotArc of the previous season about on third of the way in. The series creator stated that he felt the biggest weakness of most "mystery driven" series is that at some point viewers will either get bored with the mystery or decide that it will never end up being solved. By ''actually resolving'' previous arcs viewers are more invested in the current one.
