* More of a Retroactive one, but the first arc starts with one. Akiko Yamaguchi, after years of going through what can really be best called Magical Girl Hell: Her {{Familiar}} is dead, her parents have kicked her out, she is friendless and has been facing enemies who give her MindRape and [[MindScrew Mind Screws]] that make the end of Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion (both TV and Movie) look like amusing sleight of hand, ''every night''. And so she decides to [[DrivenToSuicide attempt suicide]] to end it all. But before she does that, she gives out a [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] plea to the world, just in case she really ''isn't'' alone. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming And she's not.]]
** [[spoiler:Fate]]'s determination to save Akiko, even knowing that she risks ''life imprisonment'' for doing so.
** "It's too late to tell me to go away. Even if you scream for me to leave, even if you cry for me to go, even if you beg me to be silent... I'll just say -- 'I'm here'."
