Minori (みのり) is a Japanese visual novel company (previously the software division of CoMixWave until April 2007) which created the games Bittersweet Fools, Wind: A Breath of Heart, Haru no Ashioto and Angel Type. Their latest game as of 2007 is Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two. Their most successful game is Wind, which has had a manga, TV animation series, and original video animation based on it. Quite a few of their games' opening movies are animated by Makoto Shinkai.
