** Goes hand-in-hand with having one of the worst cases of ItWasHisSled, as its SignatureScene was [[spoiler:Misuzu's death at the very end.]]
** Getting [[Main/OvershadowedByAwesome overshadowed]] by its [[VisualNovel/{{Kanon}} two siste]][[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} r series]] probably played a role too. Nowadays, Creator/KeyVisualArts considers ''AIR'' an OldShame.

* MoralEventHorizon: The Buddhist Monks crossed this line when they placed a curse on the Kannabi No Mikoto that extends to the ''next lives'' which is pretty much "If you fall in love, you die". Because [[DisproportionateRetribution she left the temple she was supposed to guard just so she can see her mother. They also killed her to top it off as well and the worst part is that they got away with it]].

* InferredHolocaust: How many people got attached to Kanna's reincarnations, which caused her curse to kill both of them? Furthermore, Yukito and Haruko most likely have very short futures.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight:
** Here in ''AIR'', Kano always wanted magical powers. You would feel happy for her if you have played ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', where she fights with [[MagicStaff a fantasy role-playing staff]], and is able to cast tiered versions of [[FireIceLightning fire, ice and lightning]] spells, in a reference to a RolePlayingGame named ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'', then you realize that her wish has finally become true.
** So, [[spoiler:Misuzu dies at the end, and the story ends with the implied HopeSpot that her curse was broken, and she will finally get the happy life she deserves in her next life]]. Like Kano's example above, you'll feel happy for her if you have played ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'', where she looks pretty happy, and having fun fighting. For this same reason you will also feel happy for Kanna (If you can pass over her SNKBoss status).
