Tear Jerker / Aim for the Ace!

  • Coach Munakata's death.
  • A meta-example: Hiromi's 2nd VA, Yuko Mizutani died of breast cancer in 2016, this was a major blow to both the fans as well as the anime & video game industries, as she was still active and had plenty of roles at the time of her death.
