* ''VisualNovel/{{Air}}''. Just ''VisualNovel/{{Air}}''. Especially the "Goal" part, which gets many people every time. Even just showing the ''video'' of that scene in an [[AnimatedMusicVideo AMV]] has managed to make them cry. The scene is even more depressing now, when you consider what happened to Misuzu's [[TomokoKawakami voice actress]] [[HarsherInHindsight a few years later]].
