* As ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' will teach you, war is not kind to children. Not even in a vast CrapsackWorld slowly dying in orbit around a star in the early stages of its own death. I (this is too important to be impersonal) suggest you set aside an entire day to watch it if you plan to. It's only 13 episodes long, but it can leave you unable to act for hours afterwords. And don't let the first episode fool you.
** For this troper, it wasn't even a part of the series, but in the opening, at the realization that the photo of [[spoiler:the carefree Sara, in her own world before the series starts, is the ''only time in the entire series'' she's shown smiling.]]
** One episode's pre-title sequence. Abelia is woken up at an ungodly hour of the morning by Hamdo, has to listen to his rant and then get to work waking up Hellywood to do some complicated and unnecessary task. When she hangs up the phone, she sits and stares at nothing for a few seconds with a look of utter despair. Then she smacks herself in the face and gets out of bed with her usual expression, and the title credits roll.

* Sara deciding to [[spoiler:not return to her own time/world, opting to raise her child in this new world.]] Was I the only one who felt incredibly saddened by this? Raaaaaah!

** This is the one tearjerking anime that /a/ never bashed on. You heard me. [[Website/FourChan /a/]], which routinely mocks ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', found it a horrific tearjerker.

* The opening sequence of episode 6 was utterly brutal. Sara's near rape and escape into the desert is unspeakably difficult to watch. But the way she ran out of that building, tore off the soldier's uniform and stood free, her hair blowing in the wind, Taku Iwasaki's beautiful score playing, it's just too emotionally potent NOT to get teary-eyed.

* When Shu and Sara meet again, she tells him "You lied to me." Sad not just because of her situation, but because of how Shu must feel knowing he let her down in a horrible way (even though there wasn't much he could've done).

* There's something about how the show ends so abruptly, [[spoiler:without any "epilogue" moments, staring up at the smokestacks as the credits roll]].
