YMMV / Shin Mazinger Zero

  • Tear Jerker: The Downer Beginning, with Kouji losing literally everything before meeting Minerva-X. To wit: his father was murdered, his girlfriend was raped AND killed, he killed the culprit (his grandfather, of all people), lost an arm... and then not only he became a messed-up Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds, but he and Mazinger ended up literally destroying Earth. And for worse, Minerva witnessed everything and couldn't do anything to help.
