Like when the nanny who has been looking after the mute child since she became one finally hears the latter talking was really moving. Though it was a simple scene and without being overly dramatic in their acting, I too cried with the characters as if I also knew them personally.
I also found myself crying when I watched an anime character doing everything she can just so she can save not only the world but also the person whom the small lady (or her real daughter from the future) became friends with. This may appear shallow to some but I found the particular scene where she almost broke down dramatically stirring.
Knowing the crazy funny side of the protagonists from the two different series, I came to realize that the goodness they have in them was the great factor why I shed those tears of joy. It may also be that I still appreciate the inner unique goodness of people especially those who genuinely care not only for the special people in their lives but also for others’ well-being.
