** Also, [[spoiler: Shion's last words before making her attempted sacrifice is a request to let her twin sister Mion know how much she loves her.]]

* A very small, barely noticeable one - at one point during her gradual spiral into total madness, Shion wonders if Grandpa Kimiyoshi, whom she has chained up in her torture chamber, has died yet, and expresses remorse at the prospect since she actually does love the old man. This may account for why she had been downright civil towards him in comparison to how she treats the rest of her victims.

* When Shion's inner demon is first awakened, she holds her sister Mion down and strangles her, demanding she tell her the truth about Satoshi. She then notices that Mion has three fingernails missing, exactly like her due to her "distinguishing." Mion tearfully explained that, despite her stoic exterior during the actual moment of Shion's fingernail removal, she was appalled and outraged at their grandmother for being so unfair and demanded that she get the same treatment as her twin sister, because as Shion's twin, she wanted to suffer through the same thing along with her rather than see her suffer it alone.

** Special mention goes to Rika in this as she was the only one to understand [[spoiler: Keiichi's sudden memories of killing Mion and Rena.]] It's the first time she ever speaks to him onscreen as her true self and one of the few times her usual AffectionateGestureToTheHead isn't in a mocking way.

* Even cuter, when Rika is at the town meeting with the Sonazoki's they are discussing rumors that their might be a cop snooping around, not knowing Akasaka is that cop. Rika expresses excitement since, she finds the idea of a fresh new face in town. What makes it even cuter is, while she's listening, she's drawing a picture of her and Akasaka holding hands.

to:

* Rika telling Keiichi she's aware that it was him and Shion that broke into the shrine, but assures him that she is doing all she can to protect him, because she likes him. It's double heartwarming, because she uses cats and dogs as a way of getting the truth out of Keiichi without pressuring him.

* Onikakushi-hen, the gang's "punishment" for Tomitake.




!! Tatarigoroshi-hen

to:

\n!! Tatarigoroshi-hen\n* In the Watanagashi-hen manga, Keiichi starts crying after [[spoiler:Rika and Satoko go missing]] because he thinks that [[spoiler: it's because he told Rika about going into the Saiguden with Takano, Tomitake and Shion.]] He refuses to [[spoiler: tell Rena and tells her that she will disappear if he tells her.]] Cue Rena hugging him and saying [[spoiler:"Rena won't disappear."]]




to:

* There's no "Crowning Moment of Cute" page, so this example goes here: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycwByy67HDc Akasaka first meets Rika]]. "Nipaa~"




to:

* Speaking of Tsumihoroboshi-hen, there's two of these within the same episode: when Keiichi confesses to his TrueCompanions about the toy gun incident (to which Mion tells him that there's nothing wrong with hiding embarrassing parts of your past and Satoko reassures him that he's a great guy with nothing to be ashamed of), and when he apologizes to Mion for [[spoiler:killing her in Onikakushi-hen, despite her not remembering]]:
--> '''Keiichi:''' "I will never distrust you, no... I will never doubt a friend, ever again."
* The last episode of the first season has [[spoiler:Rena prepared to kill everyone in the school because she's suffering a delusion about an alien invasion. Keiichi disables the makeshift time bomb she set up and challenges her to a fight (his baseball bat against her billhook), and although she's clearly willing to kill him, [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight he peppers the duel with friendly banter reminiscent of their water gun fight earlier in the series]]. When she disarms Keiichi and pins him down, he tells Rena to finish him off, and instead she breaks down and cries at the realization of what she's done. He hugs her and tells her everything's going to be okay. It was enough to bring CreepyChild Rika to tears.]]. Their whole dialogue just before [[spoiler:the end of their fight]] and the way he manages to snap her out of her paranoia by tauting her as if it was a game is impressively well-rendered, especially in the sound novel.
-->'''Keichi:''' What? You want me to be your maid? That's something…\\
'''Rena:''' You don't need to be my maid but… the rest is the same… I want you to say "good morning" to me when I wake up and "good night" when I go to sleep. I want you to treat me gently and make me laugh. Hm? Ahahahaha! I guess no matter who wins, we'll always be… together.\\
'''Keiichi:''' Yeah… we'll alway be together. […] Rena… even if we die, we'll meet again in another life. When that happens…\\
'''Rena:''' Yeah… we'll laugh in a normal way. We'll have fun in a normal way… and we'll fall in love in a normal way. We'll never doubt each other. We'll always trust each other.



* Lets face it, Minagoroshi-hen has a lot of heartwarming moments. The first one one though (especially for [[{{Shipping}} shippers]]) is when [[spoiler:Keiichi wins the doll after altering the "destiny" of the toy shop contest. Keiichi then starts handing the doll over while Rika tries to stop him, but instead of giving it to Rena (and thus causing Shion to eventually go crazy), he gives it to Mion, who tries to point out that she's not girly enough for dolls, but Keiichi says that even if she's a Tomboy she's still a girl to him. Cue Mion becoming more feminine and Rena wanting Mion to accept Keiichi's wish. ]]




to:

* There was also, in Minagoroshi-hen, where [[spoiler: the ghosts of Rika's recently-slaughtered TrueCompanions try to comfort her as she is being disemboweled by Takano]].
* In Minagoroshi-hen, the fact that when Rika suggests siccing the Yamainu on Satoko's uncle to keep her safe Irie is willing to go through with it, despite Takano pointing out that this could endanger his career. At first it just sounds like the drastic action so often taken in Higurashi, but then you realize that beneath the perviness and the claims of needing to keep Satoko alive to further his research on Hinamizawa Syndrome, Irie really, really cares about her.



* There's a part towards the end of Matsuribayashi-hen where the group thinks that [[spoiler:Shion]] has been killed [[spoiler:(she hasn't)]], and Satoko calls her her "Nee-Nee", admitting that she thought of her as a surrogate sister, which causes Mion to embrace her and break down. The effect is enhanced by the knowledge that in Watanagashi-hen and Meakashi-hen, [[spoiler:Shion killed Satoko in a particularly bloody and sadistic way]].
* In Matsuribayashi-hen, the reconciliation between Ooishi and Akane (who regularly brings flowers to the dam site manager's grave, despite having fought him fircely during the conflict) is a surprisingly sweet moment. It's made all the more heartwearming that Ooishi [[spoiler:just understood he has been fighting the wrong enemy for four years.]]

!! Onikakushi-hen

!! Watanagashi-hen
* Shion [[spoiler: who is actually Mion dressed as her sister]] brings Keiichi lunch when he's on the brink of passing out. She tries to apologize for her sister, but Keiichi tells her to tell Mion to not worry about it, as it was part of the club, and she leaves with a smile. The visual novel is more detailed in this scene, as Keiichi is almost brought to tears every time he takes a bite. It's almost romantic, but it shows how much [[spoiler: Mion]] cares for him. [[spoiler: This is possibly also after Mion told Shion about the doll, showing she wants to forget about what happened and, is slowly showing her girly side in the process.]]

!! Tatarigoroshi-hen

!! Himatsubashi-hen

!! Meakashi-hen
* In Meakashi-hen, although it is an early sign that Shion has Hinamizawa Syndrome, when Shion first hears the extra step and belives that it's Satoshi, after a mental conversation with him saying that he'll stay with her and lend her his strength. I couldn't help but think how heartwarming that was, [[MoodWhiplash even after thinking "Oh shit, Shion's going insane"]]

!! Tsumihoroboshi-hen




!! Minagoroshi-hen



* Minagoroshi-hen, where Keiichi decides that if they can't [[spoiler:get Child Welfare's help to save Satoko from Teppei with just the five of them]] then the help of [[spoiler:the ENTIRE SCHOOL caring about and advocating for her]] must be the trick. Bonus for Rena when there's too many of them to fit the typical conference room: "Please arrange a larger room... It's the room that should be adjusted for US."
** When even that doesn't work, Keiichi gets even more support by rallying [[spoiler:the staff and perverted customers of Shion's restaurant]]. When this catches the attention of [[spoiler:Oryo Sonozaki, whose family owns the village and hates Satoko's family]], Keiichi personally threatens her before humbling himself, to beg for her help. [[spoiler:Oryo]] is impressed enough to actually lend her support, and [[spoiler:just about ''the entire population of Hinamizawa'']] turns out to help as well, even setting up signs on the side of the road to beg motorists to help. Finally, [[spoiler:the snobbish head of Child Welfare listens to them and calls Satoko one last time. Keiichi tells Satoko over the phone about everything they've done to help her, causing her to finally give in and ask for help.]]
* When [[spoiler: Keiichi is shot by Takano. From his being shot to his death, not matter how heartbreaking this moment may be, you see just how much his friends really care for him.]]
** The scene right before that when [[spoiler: Rika is prepared to die protecting Satoko and realizes how important her friends are. Then Keiichi, Rena and the twins come out of NOWHERE and save them both. Then they all kick butt.]]

* This one also crosses over with CrowningMusicOfAwesome but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NABSgiM4IM Dear You -- Bond]] certainly deserves a mention here. (Spoiler warning, though. But the impact is bigger once you've finished the series.)
** This devoutly Anglican troper knows a vicar who is a fan of ''Franchise/WhenTheyCry'' (no, really, I do). Said vicar has said that part of him genuinely believes that after the end of this universe, ''Dear You -- Bond'' is the song that will be sung in the Heavenly Jerusalem.
