Heartwarming / Kafka on the Shore
- Though he had to go through a lot of trauma to do it, Nakata successfully manages to return Goma to her family - the two little girls are overjoyed.
- Though it's not made completely clear, it's strongly implied Miss Saeki is Kafka's mother and she asks if he can forgive her for leaving him. He does.
- Hoshino's relationship with Nakata is just generally pretty sweet, seeing the old man as like a grandfather and going along with him on his journey regardless of how nonsensical it seems.
