Heartwarming / GunBuster

  • Noriko's Pre Ass Kicking One Liner before going into combat to protect the Excellion bomb sums up her feelings for Coach Ohta in one awesome and tear-inducing sentence:
    Noriko: "Don't think the combined Gunbuster is some ordinary machine, IT HAS COACH'S HEART BEATING WITHIN IT!!!"
  • The very ending. WELCOME HOMЭ!
    • DieBuster shows this scene from the Earth's point of view, all the cities going dark and then lighting as Noriko and Kazumi appear as two pinpoints in the sky. And then you blubber like a baby all over again.
