* 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.]]

So begins ''AIR'', an HGame by Creator/KeyVisualArts with a [[BleachedUnderpants clean version]] that spawned two anime, a movie by ToeiAnimation and a TV series by Creator/KyotoAnimation. (It was actually the first of three Key games that were animated separately by these two studios, although the Toei version of ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'' came out first.) It is seen as and marketed as a companion to ''Kanon''; both deal with a young man with little to go on who arrives in a new town, begins living with a girl upon arrival, and meets various other girls while sorting out the supernatural mystery of the town. The themes of fate and miracles also run deeply through both series.

The doujin FightingGame ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'' by Creator/TwilightFrontier features Misuzu, Kano and Minagi as playable characters, but it's notorious for also featuring Kanna, who became the resident SNKBoss, and became banned in TournamentPlay due to her being a GameBreaker.
