In the last episode of the WA☆RI☆ON Saga, Yanki J. fulfills his destiny by defeating the Evil, and earns the right to "move on" and join his fellow WA☆RI☆ON in the mystical recesses of Jew Wario's mind. Jew Wario is saddened at the loss of his friend ...until The Teaser, when Yanki returns the physical world just to keep Jdub company.
The fact that deep down, Yanki J. does care about him.
Their "secret weapon" against the Evil: the combined love and positive energy of JewWario's fans.
His "Mario Monologues" all have these—especially the third one, which Justin dedicated to the memory of a dear friend who had recently passed away.
"KITTY!" There's just something unspeakably adorable about a grown man who squees over cats.
A fan of JewWario's was streaming on Justin.tv, when who should show up in the chat but the man himself! The excited fan responded by singing a song dedicated to Justin: a song she had written herself and had been planning to sing at next year's MAGfest (it can be heard here). Justin told the fan that she made him feel "like a Hollywood celebrity"; she answered, "But to me, you are!" The entire exchange was so touching that it warmed the hearts of everyone involved...not the least of all, the fan who sang it.
A minor one, but in the first part of the conclusion of the WA☆RI☆ON Saga, Justin and Yanki J. hear Jennifer scream; immediately, both men jump up and run off to help. It turns out to be the Negadub's minions luring them into a trap, but it's the thought that counts.
Also, Jennifer bringing Yanki his mail at the end, showing that he has been acknowledged and accepted as a member of the household.
And at the end of the WA☆RI☆ON Saga, after Justin proves himself as a hero by successfully vanquishing the Evil, Yanki J. demonstrates respect for him for the first time, addressing him by his new title ("Rider") rather than the casual "J-Dub".
On the final day of Con-G 2012, prop maker Devin "Featherweight" Harrigan (a fellow guest and fan at the convention) presented Justin with a special gift: the FamiconGunblade, a weapon he designed specifically for Justin to use in his Famikamen Rider segments. Thankfully the exchange was filmed.
In August 2012, Justin set up an Indiegogo page asking for donations to help him make an independent series for his FamiKamen Rider character. His goal was $8,000, but he mentioned repeatedly that he doubted he'd get past four grand. The final total of all donations? $10,255. Justin was floored.
When an anonymous fan purchased & reserved a Wii U deluxe set for him on its launch weekend. Justin then did a 5-part vlog on its unboxing and his first impressions.
Justin being able to look past Katawa Shoujo's... slightly iffy sex scenes (although he neglects to mention you can turn them off entirely), and recommend the game for its story and characters. This became even more Heartwarming In Hindsight, as he also introduced JesuOtaku to the game. Since then, he's played the game on his livestream, and will be voicing a character in a fandub called Katawa Seiyu.
Justin: "I want you all to look at me. Because what Iím about to say is important. Iíve been thinking about this a lot; a lot lately. And I want you all to know this. This goes out to everybody. Youíre not stupid. Okay? Youíre not stupid. Donít ever tell yourself that you are. Youíre important. What you have in your head may not mean a lot to a lot of people, but its what makes you special. You are important. You mean something. And youíre going to go out there, and youíre gonna to do some wonderful things. But, first and foremost, youíre not stupid. Youíre not an idiot. Donít ever tell yourself that you are. And, if nobody else ever tells you this, I will tell you this; I care about you."
Shortly after Justin's death, a fundraiser for his family was set up. It raised over $1000 in 4 hours. Donations concluded at $13,835, $1000 of which was donated by a single fan. Not to mention that they only needed a goal of $850.00; the donators didn't have to go to such great lengths but they did.
And who was responsible for setting up the fundraiser? Kitty Marie, the same fangirl mentioned above who sang the tribute song to Justin. The two had become close personal friends, and she says she will always count him as both her inspiration and her best friend.
Several people posted their condolences either on YouTube or (in the case of Rob Walker) on the That Guy with the Glasses site. In addition, people in the comment section shared their stories of suicide and offered their condolences to the uploaders and to Justin.
Heartwarming in Hindsight: In Interstella 5555, Daft Punk are beaten out for an award by the band The Crescendolls. In his crossover review, Justin laments that "Daft Punk never win anything!" The day after Justin died, Daft Punk swept the Grammys, even winning Album of The Year.
Justin's mother's post about how seeing how much her son was adored by everyone who knew him or watched his videos has been a huge help as she struggles to come to terms with his death.
