Tear Jerker: Codename: Sailor V
Danburite's death at Sailor Venus' hands in the final chapter, with Danburite putting into words that Minako will always choose duty over love, just as she had done by killing him. To drive home the point it's a tear jerker, this is the last time Minako cries in the entire manga continuity, as if she has exhausted her tears.
