Tear Jerker / Alien Nine

Go To

  • The last episode. It's sad enough seeing Kumi and Yuri (along with their teacher) being mind-raped into thinking that they're all alone in the world. None of them can see or hear the others, and Kumi actually breaks down and begins to scream and cry for her mother and father, sobbing "Don't leave! Please, don't leave me!" over and over again. Then at the end of the episode, as the ending theme song plays (which is already sad in itself) we see Yuri go sit at their usual meeting place, Kasumi suddenly running, all intermingled with images of bookshelves flying by faster and faster.. and then we see that Kumi has been killed by skating at top speed into a book-case, which has actually bent in on itself from the force, after being ambushed by an alien. Kasumi and Kumi's Borg discover the body, we're treated to a close-up on Kumi's blood-stained, tear-streaked face, and then Yuri awakes from her nap. Having apparently witnessed what has happened in a dream, the camera zooms in steadily on her face as tears spill over from her eyes instantly, and she lets out a heartbroken scream.

  • Kumi calling her mother after the Yellowknife incident, and subsequently breaking down into tears.
    "He—hello, Mommy? It's me, Kumi....N-No, I'm alright, everything's fine." *starts sobbing* "E-everything's fine!"

How well does it match the trope?
