Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • Say what you will about Endless Eight, but this troper can't be the only one who felt so sad for poor Yuki every time the camera panned in on her visibly sad face. Extra significance because she's the Emotionless Girl.
    • Just to emphasize on that; Nagato is very much The Stoic, to the point where the blink of an eye is the equivalent of her eagerly nodding in anticipation (As seen from Day of Sagittarius III). Her being visibly bored is the equivalent of a Heroic BSOD. That is also the same reason that seeing Yuki smile was a major player in tempting Kyon into staying in her self-made AU.
  • I cannot be the one who felt her heart ping a little when Kyon told Haruhi that she should find herself a nice guy to walk with and give up on all of this weird business, and Haruhi went unusually bitter as she replied with the following rant:

  Haruhi: "Men are worthless. Feelings of love are just a temporary lapse in judgement. Like a kind of mental illness. Even I... get in the mood for that stuff every now and then. I am a healthy young girl, after all. My body has its urges..."

  • Alt!Yuki's behavior in Disappearance seems to be designed to induce this. It's a huge shock to realize the quietly competent one has been broken, to leave a Shrinking Violet beyond anything we've seen. And then there's the look on her face when Kyon gets stabbed...
    • That look is just appropriate horror. The true tear-jerker expression from Alt!Yuki in that movie is her face when Kyon returns the Literature Club application to her. Way to utterly break her heart in the cruelest way possible, Kyon!
      • The utterly defeated look on Kyon's face when he hands it to her does not help things in the least. He has no desire and nothing to gain in hurting her this way. As much as people talk about him being given the "choice" it's obvious that he has none. That's why Yuki decided that he needed to be the one who remembered, because he was the only one who would choose the "real" world with all its inherent craziness over her fantasy. He must Set Right What Once Went Wrong, but that doesn't mean he's happy about it
  • This troper believes the biggest tear-jerker in "The Disappearance" was when Kyon was lying bleeding on the ground with Mikuru shaking him and crying, thinking to himself simply: "I'm going to die."
  • Mikuru in episode 2. God, that was depressing.

  Mikuru: (to Kyon) "If I find I'm unable to get married after this (post-bunnysuit incident), will you marry me?"

  • When I first watched Asakura die, I was relieved to see that psychotic bitch die. Then I read The Vanishing Of Nagato Yuki-chan where she was a perfectly normal and even very nice person... damn I miss her.
  • For those who've read "Charmed at First Sight LOVER", after Yuki fixes Nakagawa so that he can no longer see the Integrated Thought Entity, after Nakagawa rejects her, Kyon asks Yuki if she felt any pity. Her response? "... A little bit." Given how anything she says has a major impact and emotion is twenty times more, it's impossible to not feel horribly depressed, if not tear up a little.
  • Kyon attempting to punch Haruhi was pretty upsetting, even though she deserved it. She's visibly shaken and passes it off a anger at the time, but she's obviously incredibly torn up about it later. YMMV, though.
