* Sekai can be a metaphorical bucket of tears depending on the actions the player takes. She's entirely supportive of Makoto and Kotonoha's relationship at the start. However, this can lead to [[GoneHorriblyRight Makoto pursuing Kotonoha wholeheartedly and Sekai being more and more ignored.]] Towards the end, she'll realize too late that she has feelings for Makoto, but she'll [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy respect the relationship he already has with Kotonoha.]] She'll last be seen crying and cursing how stupid she is for not pursuing Makoto. Keep in mind this is one of the ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse better]] [[DownerEnding outcomes]].''
** In one route, Kotonoha calls Sekai to excitedly tell her about her plans to spend Christmas Eve with Makoto. Sekai prematurely hangs up so she can promptly break down.


* The Christmas Eve ending: yes, it is [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]] to see Makoto fully commit himself to Kotonoha and no one else. The ending has a ''strong'' implication of HappilyEverAfter. However, what leads to this ending is kind of sad. Kotonoha books an expensive hotel to spend the night in with Makoto. The reason? She's worried that Makoto will grow bored with her if they keep doing the same dating routine. Keep in mind that this is a route where Makoto stays extremely faithful to her, and she's still worried that he'll leave her. [[TheWoobie Poor girl.]]

* A certain bad end from the original's UpdatedReRelease is both this and NightmareFuel... Sekai gets so broken that, when Makoto chooses Kotonoha over her, she takes out her frustrations on Koto by ''throwing her in the path of an upcoming train''. Makoto tries to save her and manages to grab her arm... but then the train passes and not only does Kotonoha get hit anyway, but Makoto '''finds himself holding only her torn-off hand'''.
