* The end of episode 8,[[spoiler: Where the three suicidal friends, realizing they succeeded and are all ghosts now, join hands and head down the street, singing loudly, off to presumably start a fresh new unlife, their friendship seemingly stronger than ever.]]
* As sad as they are, [[spoiler: many moments between Ikari and his wife. The way they talk about how devoted the other is, as well as Misae's final farewell]]
* There's something very touching, though sad, about [[spoiler: Tsukiko apologizing to her poor, long dead dog with a warm hug.]]
