IMNSHO I think Hanako's arc had the best payoff. During the first conversation Hisao has with her, she flees in terror. Still, he decides to try to nuture a relationship with this person whom nearly everyone else in the school had written off as a lost cause. And in a staggering path filled with episodes of "2 steps forward - 1 step back" he finally wins her trust, respect, and love. And in major part it is because he successfully deals with his own issues as well. The other arcs were nice, but Hanako's was epic in the truest sense of the word.
