* While ''Saigo no Yakusoku'' from ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy'' is an image theme performed by Miki's seiyuu Creator/MarikoKouda, it's worth noticing that it plays during almost all the most dramatic scenes of the series (like [[spoiler: Natchan's departure to Hiroshima]] and [[spoiler: Miki breaking up with Yuu in the USA]]) ''and'' that it has a piano motif.

Added DiffLines:

** Another Beethoven example is the second movement of his final sonata in C minor (No. 32), written 5 years before he died. After the dramatic first movement ends with the Picardie third leading straight into the second movement, this movement starts off with a much calmer theme that highly contrasts with what you just heard. The first few variations on that theme gradually get more intense until finally bearing a resemblance to modern boogie-woogie, immediately after which it quiets down and maintains a serene, lonely, ethereal quality throughout the rest of the movement right up to the end. What's more, Beethoven never wrote a third movement for this sonata (because he felt no need to, not because he died before he could finish it), so the entire sonata is over at that point, and the feeling persists. The feeling is intensified by the juxtaposition of the fact that, by this point in Beethoven's life, he was almost completely deaf and did not have long to live, and this is one of the last piano works he has ever composed.
