  • {{Karalora This troper}} hardly ever cries at anything in fiction, but one scene in Spirited Away gets me every time: the bit when Haku has just taken Chihiro/Sen to see her parents in the pig stable, and he gives her a rice ball to eat, and she starts tearing up as she takes the first bite, and then halfway through finishing, just begins bawling from all the trauma she has accumulated over the past 16 hours or so. I can't help but bawl along with her, poor kid--I just want to reach into the screen and hug her and let her know everything'll be all right. My eyes are watering right now just from thinking about it.
    • The music at that point certainly helps.
  • If Chihiro crying her eyes out when it hits her that she is by herself in a strange world with only three people who actually care about her doesn't get you, the Bittersweet Ending will.
  • The moment where Chihiro figures out Haku's real name, and he returns to human form.
  • The soundtrack, man. Especially "Reprise". Every time I hear it I can't help tear up a bit.
