''KoiKaze'' 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.

* TheChikan: Nanoka runs into one once on her way to school. It's not a major plot point, but it occurs shortly after Nanoka got into an argument with Koshiro because she felt he was being annoyingly overprotective of her, and the experience led her to appreciate that Koshiro meant well.
