* [[spoiler:{{Determinator}}]]: Zigzagged to Agartha and back. Mikako (and, to a leeser degree, Noboru) spends most of the [=OVA=] averting the trope really hard (see {{Angst}} and HeroicBSOD entries for details). Played ''very'' straight in the FinalBattle, as she realizes that [[spoiler:she truly loves Noboru and wants to return with him someday]] and [[BewareTheNiceOnes acts]] [[TranquilFury accordingly]]. [[spoiler:Also, again to a lesser degree, for Noboru once he realizes the same and joins the Navy to [[AllThereInTheManual be part of the rescue fleet]].]]

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: An interestingly downplayed variant, as Mikako is actually [[ActionGirl badass enough]] from the beginning. Then, her anguish because of her separataion from Noboru slowly turns her into an [[HeroicBSOD emotional wreck]] that makes her even fail to react to threats, almost revoking her Badass status. And then, she [[spoiler:realizes she ''loves'' Noboru, and her only option to ever [[GoalInLife reunite with him]] is to protect the [[CurbStompBattle only remaining ship]] of the fleet. Cue [[BewareTheNiceOnes Mikako]] personally [[TranquilFury taking point]] in the last ditch counterattack and [[LaserBlade slicing in half]] the largest Tarsian ship]]. Would count as a simple LetsGetDangerous moment, if not for the notorious change in behaviour (from [[BerserkerTears emotional wreck]] to HeroicSafeMode).

* HeartbrokenBadass: Mikako, when the fleet is forced to make a series of long-distance jumps (first one year, then ''eight'' years). That makes her wonder if Noboru will wait for her or (understandably) won't. [[spoiler:he ''does'', but she has no way of knowing.]] She literally breaks down crying betwen fights.

''Voices of a Distant Star'' (''Hoshi no Koe'') is Creator/MakotoShinkai's first major work. This 2003 short film is considered one of the most poignant {{anime}} romances around, though it is particularly well-known for another reason: Shinkai scripted, drew, animated, and produced the entire movie by himself.
