This scene really hurt because Rei’s the only character who doesn’t smile through his tears.
It makes me realize that, even though he’s supposedly one of the “stronger characters,” he’s /really/ not ready to watch his new friends (and role models) go away and leave him.
"Psssst Makoto. Makoto hey, Makoto. You’re better at this stuff, what do we do"
