Nadeshiko Akabane, Midsummer Night's Dream is the 4th OVA of the Kikō Shōjo wa Kizutsukanai (Unbreakable Machine-Doll) anime.
At a crowded fireworks-viewing festival, Nadeshiko is lost and separated from her family, until Raishin Akabane finds her. Hugging her brother, she stops crying. However, when Raishin tells her he has not found their parents or older brother, she starts to cry again. In order to soothe her, he gives her a sparkling pearl he found, which cheers her up instantly. As they walk around to find their family, Nadeshiko notices the spirit of a young girl in the river, and runs towards the river, asking the girl if she is lost.
Puzzled, Raishin catches up, but does not see the spirit's form. Instead, he only sees a tiny gold particle in the air. Nadeshiko nearly cries again when he says he does not have magic to see spirits like her, but he quickly promises to find the girl's parents too even though he cannot see her. Pointing out to Nadeshiko that some children may not look alike their parents, he asks her to ask the girl about her mother's looks. Nadeshiko does so, and becomes surprised to learn of a sparkling pearl when the girl answers her. Taking out the pearl Raishin gave her earlier, Nadeshiko asks Raishin if it is okay to give away the pearl, since the girl smiles happily upon seeing the pearl. Contented that she has her brother, she hands the pearl over to the girl, who floats into the air, before dispersing into shiny particles. A firework then explodes.
Carrying Nadeshiko on his back, Raishin wonders what that girl was, while Nadeshiko says she will never forget the girl's voice. She then asks if they could return to the festival next year, and he promises to do so. Smiling, Nadeshiko says she loves him. Just then, they spot their parents and brother ahead. Relieved, they smile to each other as they walk back to their family.
