** [[http://youtu.be/n1AlWRIdV9g Case in point]]: ''魔法少女に花束を'', or more commonly, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxDCw_5o6tE A Bouquet of Flowers for a Magical Girl (English Subtitles)]]. KOKIA's powerful vocals coupled with the abstract, symbolic imagery will fill you with sadness. The simple little glimpses of Madoka breaking into tears makes you simply want to join her in crying. The [[http://youtu.be/i2qNHV_RRC0 sequel]], ''私の太陽'', translated as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JDgstUj3I0 My Sun]], once again leverages KOKIA's voice and the imagery of Homura visibly breaking down over missing Madoka, and will make your tears into a waterfall.

** [[spoiler:Look at the Grief Seed that Madoka uses. It's patterned after manuscript paper, which sheet music is printed on. That's ''Sayaka's Grief Seed''.]]

* After Sayaka contracts and [[spoiler:she's hit with misery absolutely equal to the happiness that Kyosuke will have thanks to her wish]]. This is what ultimately [[spoiler:leads her to become a Witch]]. Her facial expression, as well as what she says sells it, as pictured.

** Kyoko's reaction to this entire situation is really what makes this scene sad, especially at the end of it.
-->'''Kyoko:''' SAYAKAAA!!

* A throwaway line, but a sad one: the homeroom teacher mentions Sayaka, followed by 'and now I'm hearing one of the girls in the third year is missing as well'. She's talking about Mami. This is pretty sad when you remember that it's been the better part of a month at this part, and Mami died near the beginning of it. In episode terms, Mami died in Episode Three and it's now Episode 11. It's been eight episodes since she died, and the teachers are only just now getting worried about it. This suggests that either: the teachers tried to call home, and no one was there, or Mami has possibly missed class before due to the pressures of a magical girl life. Either way, Homura was more right than she knew when she said in Ep 4 that it would be some time before Mami even had a missing person's report - not only does she have no relatives to notice her going missing, but she appears to have somehow flown under the radar in her school life, too.

*** [[spoiler: Kyoko isnt entirely apathetic to Mami's death. In her first confrontation with Sayaka over killing familiars, she acts cocky and arrogant, but isn't hostile, until Sayaka snaps back that people like Kyoko are the reason why Mami's dead, causing Kyoko to drop the haughty mask and clench her fists, angrily muttering "Shut up," showing that Mami's death affected her more than she let on.]]

* There is a Vocaloid by the name of CUL out there, whose voicebank was based on the voice of Sayaka's seiyuu. How did a producer use this to their advantage? Well the song they made is called [[spoiler: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-tsQjb69cc&feature=related "Atashitte honto baka"]], that is, "I'm such an idiot" or "I was stupid... so stupid...", i.e., the most spoilerriffic sentence Sayaka uttered in episode 8.]]

** Due to their contracts, [[spoiler: they will '''never have a life beyond the witch hunt.''' The Puella Magi that lasted the longest before witching out was twenty when it happened. Assuming that she was fourteen, she lived six years before ''going irreparably insane, splitting her own soul open and vomiting its contents into a hell-dimension she created'' '''''out of pure rancorousness and acerbity.''''' They will never grow up. They will never lead a normal life. They will die before they can achieve anything in the real world, the world they protect and the world they gave their souls for. Sayaka was right; Magical Girls really are the living dead. It brings to mind a part of the description on Oktavia von Seckendorff's witch card:]]
--> ''Her fortune only turns under the weight of memories and no longer moves toward the future. Nothing will reach her any longer. She will come to know nothing more.''

* Oktavia giving out a blood-curdling shriek [[spoiler:in Sayaka's voice.]] The effect is both nightmarish and [[TorturedMonster tragic.]]
