* BuryYourGays: [[spoiler:Chikane dies at the end, Himeko spends her life (or at least a long time, see TheStinger and PreserveYourGays below) grieving for her lost love]].


Added DiffLines:

* PreserveYourGays: Himeko and Chikane confess their love to each other. Chikane dies and gets erased from existence. Then, come TheStinger epilogue, Chikane reappears, having kept her promise of not letting even the gods stop her from returning to Himeko.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Most people who haven't seen the show already know it for the infamous [[spoiler: rape of Himeko during episode 8]]. Even if they don't know that, people are well aware that Himeko and Chikane become romantically involved; for most of the first few episodes the series didn't seem rather GirlsLove but more RomanticTwoGirlFriendship driven.



* TomHanksSyndrome: The role of Chikane finally allowed Creator/AyakoKawasumi to break her (albeit beloved) typecast as "the sweet and nice GirlNextDoor with a soft voice" (such as a Aoi of AiYoriAoshi and Akari of ToHeart) in romantic comedies; from henceforth, she is as a '''rule''' cast as the serious, mature badass lady with a [[ContraltoOfDanger deep and sexy voice]] such as Saber of Anime/FateStayNight.

Himeko is taken in after the destruction of the dormitory by her friend and fellow priestess Chikane Himemiya (the Tsuki no Miko, or Priestess of the Moon), and tries to get on with her life as much as possible even as the two girls attempt to learn the ritual which will summon Ame no Murakumo and come under periodic attack by the eight "necks" of Orochi, henchmen of the evil god, who run the gamut from serious (Tsubasa) to traitor (Tsubasa's younger brother, Oogami Souma, who fights on the side of the Priestesses) to downright goofy (Nekoko, the catgirl, who [[spoiler:levels a fifty square kilometre region of coastal Japan for the lulz]].)

It was one of those days for the innocent Kurusugawa Himeko: Wake up late on your [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday sixteenth birthday]], rush to get ready and get to school... Then an ancient evil wakes up with designs on world destruction, a couple of anthropomorphic robots trash the school dormitory, and life as you've known it is over.

Himeko is taken in after the destruction of the dormitory by her friend and fellow priestess Himemiya Chikane (the Tsuki no Miko, or Priestess of the Moon), and tries to get on with her life as much as possible even as the two girls attempt to learn the ritual which will summon Ame no Murakumo and come under periodic attack by the eight "necks" of Orochi, henchmen of the evil god, who run the gamut from serious (Tsubasa) to traitor (Tsubasa's younger brother, Oogami Souma, who fights on the side of the Priestesses) to downright goofy (Nekoko, the catgirl, who [[spoiler:levels a fifty square kilometre region of coastal Japan for the lulz]].)

Though ''Kannazuki no Miko'' attempts to fool viewers into believing that it could be a schoolyard drama (which it is, to an extent), and then a mecha action show, the truth is that it is, essentially, a love story. (Actually, a rather simple LoveTriangle, wherein Himeko has some feelings for both Chikane and Oogami Souma, but initially believes that those two are a couple, while both of them hold romantic feelings for Himeko.) The strange blend of seriousness and humor in the series makes for a very "love it or hate it" reaction from viewers.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: First it is depicted as a strong BitterSweetEnding, however [[spoiler: at the end of the series, Himeko implicitly makes it clear that she still hopes to meet that "only person who is waiting for her somewhere in this world", after which the epilogue strongly implies that already as being adult women, she and reincarnated Chikane meet in a new world And again fall in love with each other as Himeko's last words in the work say.]]

** In turn, the manga has a slightly sadder version, [[spoiler: where Chikane is still dying, but in the epilogue she already reincarnates with Himeko as twin sisters, beating the popular Japanese legend that StarCrossedLovers in the next life will be twins. And although the whole epilogue carries a few LesYay and IncestSubtext, Himeko's words show that they are happy and "always be together."]]
