* CoversAlwaysLie: In all of ADV Films and Funimation's releases of AIR, the Box Set covers show all three girls with each other making one think they are all friends and that this series is a harem where the main protagonist can end up with one of the three. [[spoiler: It is not. All three of them are never seen together. Misuzu interacts with Minagi ONCE in episode 1, Kano is kind of mean, not acknowledging Misuzu and only focusing on Yukito. Even after Kano's story passes, Misuzu claims she has no friends in Episode 5. One might think Misuzu and Kano can become good friends since they're both weird girls with similar interests.]]

One might think Misuzu and Kano can become good friends since they're both weird girls with similar interests. Kano and Minagi are NEVER even seen on-screen together. This situation is opposite in the manga, for all three girls are friends, exchange conversations and even share a panel with each other.]]

* PreciousPuppies: Potato. To quote WebVideo/JesuOtaku's [[GagSub Red Snark Titles]], "Cutest fuzzy tuber ever!^_^".



* MindScrew: During the Michiru/Minagi arc in the anime, It is revealed that [[spoiler: Minagi's mother miscarried a baby whom she would have named Michiru, causing Minagi's mother to act as if Minagi was Michiru and Minagi didn't exist at all]] and that [[spoiler: The Michiru the audience got to know is really not a human but a wandering spirit who became Minagi's companion because she was lonely]], which lead viewers into potentially believing that [[spoiler: "Michiru" was supposed to be/represent Minagi's deceased baby sister]]. However, things get even more confusing after [[spoiler: the spirit Michiru disappears for good after realizing Minagi had other friends now]] and Minagi reunites with her father and a younger half-sister, [[spoiler: who looks identical to Michiru and is presumably named Michiru, so it turns out that the spirit Michiru likely was representing this sister instead of the miscarried one]]. In hindsight, [[spoiler: the lack of family resemblance between Michiru and Minagi was noticeable even for show standards, which makes sense if they are really half-sisters instead of full-blooded sisters.]]

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: PlayedForLaughs. Near the shrine at night, Yukito helps a disorientated Kano to stand after she collapsed when Hijiri suddenly appears to find her sister in the arms of the part-timer. "It's not like I gave alcohol to an innocent girl and took her to a secluded place..." He actually ''didn't'' do this, but Hijiri takes it as SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.

** [[spoiler: The feudal Japanese society responsible for imprisoning and killing off the angels because they feared them. It was the neglectful treatment of Kanna that sparked the journey to find her mother in the Summer route, and they both get killed by soldiers in the end. The monks of the temple were also indirectly responsible for the curse that affect Misuzu by sealing Kanna (who by that point was the last of her kind) into an endless void in the sky that would lead to her suffering through nightmares and reincarnating. Ryuuya gets ready to kill as many of them as he can, but Uraha forces him to stop; saying that Kanna wouldn't want Ryuuya to go back to being a killer. They weren't worth it.]]

They technically get away scot-free because of the fact that the story's not even about them, but rather their consequences.]]

** [[spoiler: To be fair, since humanity had limited knowledge of angels at the time they might not have realized that sealing Kanna in the skies would lead to reincarnation. In the Toei film this detail was left out and it was implied that all angels were cursed like that.]]

* BittersweetEnding:[[spoiler: Finding true happiness breaks the curse that the Buddhist monks laid on Kannabi no Mikoto, allowing the next life to freely pursue happiness. So, although Misuzu dies in this lifetime, her next life ''will'' be a happy one, giving the ending a heartwarming undercurrent of hope]].

%% * DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:Oh, Misuzu...]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Note to any winged beings: leaving the temple, even if it's just to see your mother, will result in you being hunted, cursed, and killed by Buddhist monks and other peoples under orders of the emperor. Said curse will haunt you and all your reincarnations. The curse? Die when you fall in love. And that means feeling ''any'' sort of love too, including if that love is familial, or even ''platonic'', like ''friendship''.
