- Though the final episode is a Bittersweet Ending, it's not without its Heartwarming Moments; namely the part after the credits finish rolling, where Hitomi looks out onto the water and sees a vision of Van sitting on the rocks smiling back at her lovingly. It could be a sign that she possibly will return to Gaia one day. It also shows that they are still connected with each other through their minds.
- Hitomi's talk with Prince Chid was full of the D'AWWWWWW.
- Folken's spirit comforting Hitomi while giving her words of advice just before she confesses her love to Van.
- Speaking of, in the last episode, when Van and Hitomi are hugging/saying their farewells, the camera fades in between shots of spirits watching from afar. The list includes: Van and Folken's parents peacefully reunited in death, Princess Marlene and Duke-King Freid finally in peace as well, Folken (and one with both of his arms, not just one plus an artificial limb!) holding a smiling Naria and Aria close to him, and last but not least a smiling Balgus.
