ITT: Crowning Moments of Heartwarming in Anime

-The ending of Gunbuster: Noriko and Kazumi return to Earth after 12,000 years, to see that everything is dark, and wonder if the human race ended up being wiped out after all... and then the Earth lights up into a giant "Welcome Home" sign.
-Graduation day for the girls in Azumanga Daioh.
-One Piece: The Arlong Arc. All of Nami's efforts, hopes and dreams are crashing down around her ears, and she's violently defacing the tattoo on her arm with a knife -- when Luffy grabs her wrist and stops her. For the first time completely open with any of the other heroes, Nami begs him to save her village. Without a word, he leaves his precious hat in her hands and marches off to battle.
-Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann. After carving a hole through the Anti-Spiral avatar and killing him once and for all, every single Anti-Spiral in the universe dies or vanishes due to No Ontological Inertia; Nia, however, hangs on by pure defiant willpower and her love for Simon, and they finally get married. Then, after sharing one last kiss, she vanishes in the air, smiling to him, and Simon puts on his cape and spends the rest of his days Walking The Earth.
