* And then her reaction when [[[[spoiler:Kenshin says Aoshi isn't beyond saving, and promises to bring him back to the Aoiya alive. Okina has a ''MyGodWhatHaveIdone'' as he realizes that his request would have hurt Misao more than anything.]]

* The ''To Rule Flame'' prequel is from Yumi Komagata's perspective, and has more than one of these - specially [[spoiler: the cruel and completely undeserved murder of Yumi's best friend Hanabi at the hands of a SocialDarwinist BloodKnight who killed her [[DisproportionateRetribution for saying the wrong thing at the worst moment possible]] ]] and then [[spoiler: Yumi's ''[[HeroicBSOD absolute]]'' [[HeroicBSOD heartbreak]] [[CynicismCatalyst when she finds out]]; she's shown screaming and crying as [[PietaPlagiarism she cradles poor Hanabi's bloodstained corpse]].]]

** [[spoiler: Don't even get me started when Sanosuke]] visits her grave on the final episode of the arc. The way he weeps is easily one of the most tearful moments of the filler episode. Just seeing someone as strong and hardened from life as he is breaking down and yelling in regrets why [[spoiler: Sayo had to die]] just made me feel so bad and the fact [[spoiler: it took Shouzu taunting him into a brief duel in FRONT of Sayo's grave]] is a testament to how affected [[spoiler: Sanosuke]] was at her death.

** It's especially bad in regards to [[spoiler: the death scene itself. Sayo lays fatally wounded in the arms of her friend ([[ImpliedLoveinterest or more]]) Sanosuke as he's apologizing for not having been able to shield her... and then he realizes that ''he doesn't even know her name''! (He only knows her as Magdaria, her Christian name). He tearfully points it out, then Sayo calmly looks at him and whispers [[FamousLastWords "Sayo... my name is Sayo... Sanosuke, I'm glad I met you..."]] and [[KillTheCutie perishes almost]] [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth immediately afterwards]]. The next seconds show [[HeroicBSOD the emotionally crushed]] Sanosuke [[DiedInYourArmsTonight cradling her lifeless body]], whispering "Sayo... I'm sorry, Sayo..."]]

* ''Seisouhen'' has a major BrokenBase with good reasons for it, but no one can deny how heartbreaking the OVA was.



** In the series, there is also [[spoiler:Yumi's death in Shishio's arms after he fatally stabs her with his own katana and then comforts her as she passes away, and Kenshin's first visit to Tomoe's grave in years]]. Both of them with the ''Adagio Cantabile'' of [[{{LudwigVanBeethoven}} Beethoven's]] ''Pathetique Sonata'' as background music.
** The manga scene where [[spoiler:Kenshin finds Kaoru's (supposed) corpse and [[HeroicBSOD completely breaks down]] as he believes Enishi has finally gotten his revenge on him]].

* [[spoiler:Anji Yukyuzan]]'s horribly depressing backstory. My God, [[spoiler:Anji's screams of fury and pain when he sees the shrine burned down and his stepchildren dead, especially the teenage girl with a PrecociousCrush on him]]... it ''never'' fails to bring the water works for me.



* Say what you want about ''[[BrokenBase Seisouhen]]'', but admit it. You cried at least once during either episode.

* It is absolutely heartbreaking when [[spoiler:Tomoe dies in Kenshin's arms. Forget the fact that it was he who accidentally killed her, and that she cuts the final scar on his cheek. Just the way she mutters "I'm sorry, my darling" before drifting away into a permanent sleep]] is enough to move anyone to tears.
