* Occurs in the third episode of ''Anima/VividredOperation'', sans toast. This one is actually justified by the plot: protagonist Akane Isshiki has a morning paper route before school, but the chaos from the initial [[{{Kaiju}} Alone]] attack the previous day meant that the papers arrived late that morning, throwing her schedule off. She resorts to flying to school in her Palette Suit and ends up [[CrashIntoHello crashing into Wakaba]], setting up her introductory episode.
