* ''[[EfATaleOfMemories ef: A Tale Of Memories]]'' has its share of very sad moments, in particular anything involving Chihiro Shindou's IllGirl condition. Especially heart-breaking is the scene where Chihiro [[spoiler:rips out the pages of her diary in which she mentions Renji, so she will forget him]].
** The spot that really hit this troper was when [[spoiler:Chihiro said "I just can't not think about you for 13 hours"]]. Then, the for a second watch through, when [[spoiler:Renji first finds Chihiro before running off to find the pages, and she claims doesn't recognize him, you know she's acting and when you think about how impossibly difficult and heart-breaking for her to be doing that...]]
* The scene in which Miyako fills up Hirino's cell phone with increasingly desperate messages after [[spoiler:he stood her up on their date]] also qualifies--especially since all we see is her standing still and ''her messages written out on the screen''. Pretty intense. Kudos to the voice actors, too.
* A Tear Jerker on its own, but twins especially will probably be hit hard during [[spoiler: the flashback of the accident that caused Chihiro's amnesia. Seeing poor little Kei crying in the hospital and obviously believing it was all her fault made me cry more than the two above mentioned scenes.]]
* And for the second season, [[spoiler: Yuuko's backstory in episode 6 (crossed over with [[MindScrew Mind Screw]]) and Yuu's and Yuuko's meeting in the final episode]]. God ''dammit'' Yuuko, why didn't you [[spoiler:LookBothWays]]?
* Speaking of [[spoiler:not looking both ways, when Yuu finds Yuuko's body and then picks her up, carrying it with Miki? Yeah, that's bad. Then ''Ebullient Future'' begins to play. I bawled.]]
* Yuu's and Yuuko's [[spoiler: final farewells in the last episode]]. I was a little confused as to why the camera kept focusing on [[spoiler: Yuu's eyes]] while he was talking about how [[spoiler: he had moved on and would be fine without her]]. Then I remembered something Yuuko said in one of the previous episodes:
-->'''Yuuko''': [[spoiler: Yuu-kun, you blink when you lie.]]
