Sometimes, an anime character says something that just makes your heart melt. It can be utterly adorable, or it can be tinged with sadness, but either way, hearing it makes you feel happy or emotionally fulfilled afterward.  Heartwarming anime quotes appear in a variety of genres, from romance series like Blue Spring Ride and My Little Monster to shonen action anime like Bleach and Naruto.

These quotes might make you smile, or they might make you tear up a little, but they'll definitely leave you feeling good.

“I want you to be happy. I want you to laugh a lot. I don’t know what exactly I’ll be able to do for you, but I’ll always be by your side.”

It hasn't been easy for Kagome to adjust to life in the Sengoku period, and she isn't always sure of her place in a world that's so different from her own. Luckily, she's able to forge a strong, loving connection with Inuyasha, one that can weather the confusion of coming from two different worlds.

"If you attack the Hidden Leaf, I'll have no choice; I will fight you, don't doubt that. Until that day, save your hatred. Then you can throw all of it right at me. I'm the only one who can handle all that hate! Do you understand? I'm the only one who can fulfill that duty, so I'll bear the burden of your hatred, and I'll die with you! Because you're my friend!"

One of the most powerful relationships in the Naruto universe is the one between Naruto and his best friend and rival, Sasuke. This quote shows just how deeply Naruto cares for Sasuke - yes, he'll fight him to defend their village, but he still loves him deeply, and is more than willing to help take on the burden of Sasuke's very real pain.
