Tear Jerker: Kikaider

  • The ending of the anime. Then the ending of the OVA just to top themselves on sadness.
  • The episode where Mitsuko reunites with her mother. And her mother's tearful suicide in front of her children, after realizing she really did care for them.
  • The woman who is forever waiting for the man to come back to her, not realizing he's already dead.
  • Rieko's death. And then Ichiro's. And Rei's. And Bijinder's.
  • Jiro's speech in the last part of the OVA and the accompanying music is heartbreaking.
  • For the live action series, the deaths of Gold Wolf, Jinbei and Saburo/Hakaider.
