Those Who Know Grief (心の痛みを判る人, Kokoro no Itami o Wakaru Hito) is the ninth episode of the original anime Yuki Yuna is a Hero. It aired on December 4, 2014.


Yūna and Togo relay what they've learned from Sonoko to , who asks them not to tell Itsuki and Karin until they know for certain. Despite hearing from Itsuki's homeroom teacher how Itsuki has been suffering due to her missing voice, Fū remains in denial, hoping that things will eventually get better.

The next day, however, Togo reveals to Yūna and Fū that their fairies were actually created to prevent them from killing themselves, proving that everything Sonoko said to them was true and that their symptoms are permanent. This leads Fū to become distressed, knowing that Itsuki's voice will never return and she will never achieve her dream of becoming a singer. Angered by having gotten everyone involved, Fū seeks to destroy the Taisha, even preparing to battle her way through Karin. However, Yūna and Itsuki stop her from fighting, showing her they have no regrets joining the Hero Club.
