Even this dark series can produce some moments.

  • Despite the blatant issues regarding the relationship, it is made clear that Satou deeply cares for Shio, and the feeling is mutual.
  • Shouko's relationship with Asahi. After suffering abuse at the hands of his father for five years, Shouko was the first person to treat Asahi with kindness by giving him food and expressing concern for him when she finds him sleeping under a park bench.
  • Episode 2:
    • Watching Shio attempt to clean the apartment room she and Satou live in. It is really the only sense of levity that we could hope for coming from a series such as this.
  • Episode 3:
    • Even though he doesn't take him up on it, Taiyo offers to take Asahi back home.
  • Episode 5:
  • Episode 6:
    • While largely pragmatic, Satou's motivation for keeping Shoko out of her affairs is mainly because she doesn't want to drag her into it, and even refers to her as a "good girl."
  • Episode 8:
    • While it turns dark, it was nice for Satou to have found someone to vent her dissatisfactions to in the form of her neighbor. It is additionally rare to see Satou acting completely normal which is heartbreaking in itself.
    • Asahi comforting Shouko after she felt terrible for being hesitant in accepting Satou in the previous episode. In spite of not trusting anyone for the duration of his life, Asahi firmly professes that he not only trusts Shouko, but he appreciates her for everything she had done for him. He even pets her head in a similar fashion to Shio momentarily.
  • Episode 9:
    • While this is arguably the saddest episode in the series, Shoko once again shows how much she had grown to care for Asahi, and tries to goad him into finding happiness for himself. She even shares a kiss with Asahi, admitting that while he wasn't her type, she would've loved to have him as her prince.
  • Episode 10:
    • Shio stands up to Satou, threatening to leave if Satou continues to coddle her like she always did. This leads up to the both of them reflecting on their relationship and then striving to work on a more honest one.
  • Episode 11:
    • Strangely, Satou's aunt is not only supportive of Satou's love, but she even sounds slightly proud of her when Satou talked down to her for her idea of love. Satou's aunt even affably greets Shio with admiration, and Shio returns it by genuinely wanting to be her friend despite Satou's criticism.
  • Episode 12:
