''Koi Kaze'' started out as a manga series which then got adapted into an anime series in 2004 and immediately received a lot of attention for its harrowingly realistic examination of sibling incest. The painful and guilt-ridden romance between Koshiro and Nanoka is credibly full of angst and BelligerentSexualTension as the two struggle against their desires, refreshingly devoid of the blithe disregard for social mores and {{fanservice}} most {{shonen}} series on similar subjects tend to have.

* ArtistsAreNotArchitects: Completely subverted by the manga. The manga could only have been drawn by someone who did know how to do technical drawings because it looks like it was drawn in the exact same way that Architects and Engineers used to do design drawings, ink on linen, before any shortcuts were available. It really seems like the artist wanted to show off as many extreme high and low perspective angles as he possibly could given the number that show up in the manga.

** It's also {{justified}} and something of a {{reconstruction}} too, as it presents a situation where the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprinting_%28psychology%29#Westermarck_effect Westermarck Effect]] doesn't come into play.

* {{Bishounen}}: Somewhat hilariously subverted. It's shown that before meeting her brother for real Nanoka envisioned him idealistically as being kind, helpful, and very much a pretty boy. While the first two eventually are shown to be the case as Koshiro grows closer to her, a pretty boy he is not. Despite Nanoka fostering romantic feelings for him, she even once muses that he doesn't really fit her idea of 'good-looking'.

* BoyfriendBluff: Makie is shown to have a polite and persistent, but unwanted, suitor. She doesen't have a good way to get rid of him without being very rude. Cue one of these with her making her son pose as her supposed "boyfriend" during one of his visits. Koshiro is at this point old enough for the ruse to work, but clearly uncomfortable with it.

Added DiffLines:

* GeckoEnding: A mild example, as the anime ended a few months before the final chapters of the manga were released. Despite being over different time scales, the anime and manga actually follow surprisingly similar plot paths towards the end. However, there are a few notable differences - aside from the fact the manga covers more detailed territory by having more events happen, the anime has Koshiro resign from his job whereas in the manga he continues to work there. The anime also ends with Koshiro and Nanoka having another date at the amusement park unaware that it's scheduled to be demolished soon, whereas in the manga they aren't shown to have such a date, but they outright comment upon the park's upcoming closure. The differences in part serve to give the endings slightly different meanings, see the BittersweetEnding entry.

* SeriesContinuityError: At one point in the Anime's episode 6, another student offers to carry some boxes in Nanoka's hands, only he sets off in the opposite direction she was headed.

* LuminescentBlush: The art style gives this to almost everyone but damn you really don't expect to see a bulky guy like Koshiro ''blush'' as hard or as often as he does.

* SexyDiscretionShot: Used a few times, as the series is designed to portray the situation realistically but isn't in it at all for {{fanservice}}. Koshiro is in a few scenes heavily implied to be masturbating (one of which he later confirms in a guilt-ridden internal dialogue), and later he and Nanoka give in to having sex with each other, but the audience never gets shown anything graphic.

** PragmaticAdaptation: While the anime took almost all of its major plot points from the source material, they were shuffled around to better fit the anime format - some events from early in the manga happened quite late in the anime, and certain scenes were transposed into happening during different storylines, which leads to those changed events having a different context because of how different the relationship between Koshiro and Nanoka is when they happen.
