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.

    Elias Wants Chise To Leave The Past Behind In 'The Ancient Magus' Bride'

    “Whatever happened is in your past and doesn’t change the fact that you’re here now.” 

    Before she met Elias, Chise had a rough life - in fact, she's so traumatized by her past that she finds it difficult to move on and enjoy her current existence. In this quote, Elias reminds her that what actually matters is what's happening now - a much happier life and a partnership with him.

  • "I'll marry you! No matter what kind of sickness you have! Even if you can't walk or stand, or even when you can't have kids! I'll still marry you! No matter where or how I meet you, I'll fall in love with you. If I can meet you again, against the 6 billion to 1 odds, and even if your body can't move, I'll marry you."

    Hinata has a complicated relationship with Yui, but by the end of the series, they're extremely close - so close that he claims he'll always love her no matter what, even if she's totally bedridden and incapable of caring for herself the way she was in life. Even the iciest of hearts can't help but melt at everlasting love.
