I love Neon Genesis Evangelion episode 23. It’s about the four female protagonists and the breaking point of their various abusive relationships.
Asuka’s inner turmoil finally manifests physically when her “body”, Eva Unit 02, no longer responds to her.
Misato is left with the burden of carrying her lover’s heart and responsibilities on her own.
Rei discovers her identity and the weight of despair that comes with being the shell of another’s ambitions.
Ritsuko ends her vigilant devotion to an uncaring man with an act that will surely destroy her.
Shinji listens to sad pop music on his Walkman and is largely ignored by the rest of the cast.
