* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Nunnally often referred to her older brother Lelouch with the ultra-respectful ''Onii-Sama'' . His [[spoiler:fake younger brother, who he eventually accepts before his death]] Rolo refers to him as ''Nii-San''. (The dub uses "Big Brother" for both.) Not sure if it's in the canon, but fanon usually has the word ''aniue'' pop up in regards to Lelouch's relationship with his older half-brother Schneizel.

Additionally, ''ani'' and ''ane'' can take the honorific prefix ''o-'' in place of the initial ''a'' (and simultaneously double the ''i'' / ''e'' sound), which indicates even further respect. This is not mandatory, though. When speaking to your older brother, you would call him ''Niisan'' or ''Oniisan'' ; older sister would be ''Neesan'' or ''Oneesan''; the younger ones you would normally address by name.

* Souta in ''Manga/InuYasha'' calls Kagome "nee-chan," while in the feudal era, Kohaku calls Sango by the more archaic "aneue" ([[LaserGuidedAmnesia when he remembers who she is, anyway]]). Manten, the younger of the {{youkai}} Thunder Brothers, calls his older brother Hiten "anchan," and most of the Band of Seven call their leader Bankotsu "aniki" or "o-aniki." Kaede refers to Kikyou as "onee-sama". (Inuyasha himself, being your standard JerkWithAHeartOfGold shounen protagonist, calls his AloofBigBrother Sesshoumaru by his first name only, and both he and Sesshoumaru himself seem horrified when Kagome calls Sesshoumaru "''oniisan''".)
