* Believe it or not, [[@/{{Demetrios}} this troper]] cried during the climax of ''Anime/PerfectBlue'', when Rumi/Mima's Evil Twin was trying to kill Mima. Not because there was anything sad about it, but because at that point, [[NightmareFuel the insanity was too much]], especially to the overly-curious 16-year-old I was back then. I know, the insanity of that part wasn't as bad as [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} the forces of Chaos]], but it was pretty up there.
** "I guess I went to Harajuku today..." turned this troper's face into [[TooMuchInformation a heap of snotty mush]], because it signifies Mima's absolute lowest point in terms of sanity - she doesn't trust her own perceptions '''at all''' any more (although, who can blame her? It's a [[Creator/SatoshiKon Kon-sensei]] movie). Conversely, Mima's climactic cry of [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Like I even care! I AM MYSELF!"]] was a thing of beauty that made this troper weep with joy.
*** What makes these moments more tear-jerking is that the movie is a rather disturbing example of BreakTheCutie. In the first half of the movie, Mima is a very nice and pleasant lady (albeit a little ditzy), and I don't know if it was just in the English dub or not, but she only swore once in the whole movie even while the other characters were cursing like sailors. Plus she's kind of hot, especially in that costume she wore for the concert. ''I'd'' go out with her ([[GuiltyPleasures if she weren't a fictional character, that is]]).
* This troper felt sorry for [=MeMania=]. Yes, he was [[MoralEventHorizon a serial killer and attempted rapist...]] But that's because he was a deformed, barely-functioning schizophrenic who lived only for his perfect image of Mima. The scene where we see his apartment is an enormous StalkerShrine and that all he wants in life is "the real Mima's" affection was genuinely sad.

** Or possibly because he chose to be a psychotic monster, and consciously ignores the reality in front of him. Like the terrified, innocent woman he's about to rape.
