Heartwarming moments found in Last Child of Krypton:
- In both versions Shinji flies to Germany and back overnight to buy chocolates for Asuka.
- In the redux, Ritsuko is sobbing and Shinji tries to console her and cheer her up. When she tells she is an awful person and he would hate her if he knows what she has does, he softly replies: "You are better than you think you are."
- Again in the redux, Shinji reassures Asuka after Kaji has turned her down, capped off with him admitting he wishes she could see herself how he sees her.
- In the rewrite, when Asuka and Misato find Shinji badly wounded in their home, Asuka kneels by her side and pleads "Please, don't leave me. I need you."
