Tear Jerker / Angel Sanctuary

Go To

  • When Kato took his final, final, final Heroic sacrifice in front of Heaven's door. The moment he held up the door for Setsuna to slip through and then waiting for his meteor to smash him...
    • The tragedy of this scene is amplified when Kato closes his eyes, and a vision of Kira lighting the end of his cigarette manifests.
    "Is this my dream? Is this the wish the falling star granted? Really, a guy like me..."
  • When Kira dies in order to save Setsuna from Rosiel. And afterwards a good deal of Set's confrontations with Lucifer.
  • Sara's death, with her crying because it hurts and telling Setsuna, clearly scared. It also sets off the events of the entire series.
