Tear Jerker: Space Battleship Yamato 2199
- Erich Domel's death, motivated by his will to not make his men's deaths senseless. The Yamato surviving, thus making everything a Senseless Sacrifice, only makes it worse.
- Celestela's death.
- Yuki's death. Especially for how Kodai reacted: having it kept a secret to not sadden the crew and feign not suffering. Thankfully, she got better, courtesy of Mamoru Kodai activating the Cosmo Reverser just for that.
- And that leads right in something terrifying: now the Cosmo Reverser won't work anymore, and the whole voyage was useless.
- And this is corrected by the last link of this chain: Okita willing himself to die to reactivate the Cosmo Reverser.
