* Akira kissing Saki in the rain in episode 5.
* Also Akira trying ([[spoiler:and failing, due to his wound]]) to restore the Johnny Hunter's faith in men. Double subverted in that it actually did work.

* Saki running after Akira in the second movie, grabbing his hand and kissing him before making him promise they'll meet again.
* In ''The King of Eden'', when Akira says that he remembers a movie about a couple who was separated, and then adds that it wasn't a movie, but that it actually happened.
