Tear Jerker: Phantom Brave
The first part of Phantom Brave is depressing enough with its absolutely brutalAll of the Other Reindeer moments, but the new scenario in the remake makes it even worse by introducing "Carona", who is a Marona from a world without Ash. Also, everyone in the world dies in the opening cut scene. It's like NIS looked at the original and asked "How could we possibly make this more depressing?"
That doesn't make the main scenario any less depressing. Take for example the end of Chapter 2 when Marona is harshly scolded and ridiculed by her client, one of the few she felt could trust in the entire world, upon finding out she is the "rumored" Possessed. Had Walnut not been there, I doubt Ash would have had the restraint to keep himself for beating the living hell out of Marona's client.
Or any of the chapters where Marona is not trusted for hanging with Phantoms, her only friends who aren't alive. In short, most of the whole damn game. Except for stuff under Crowning Moment Of Heart Warming.
