Let's discuss moments in anime/manga that really hit home with you. What ones just left your jaw on the ground and possibly a litter water in the eyes?

Is there a general series/movie that you hold as the saddest piece of anime ever?

For me [SPOILER AHOY] the #1 saddest moment is the ending of Cowboy Bebop. Whoa. That ending is like, possibly the greatest ending I've ever seen in entertainment of any medium. Wow. Even after 5 or 6 times of seeing it, the impact is still there. That "bang" still just gets me. Sad [END SPOILER]

Oh where to begin...text is small and white below spoiler notices. You shouldn't be able to read it without squinting or highlighting it.

Grave of the Fireflies
Just very, very sad. Kinda goes beyond description.

Giant Robo
BIG SPOILER...DO NOT LOOK! Or do, if you don't care.
Ginrei dies! NO!

Now and Then, Here and There
(When anime goes up this will be my first review.)
The whole show just rapes your mind, it's a combination of what happens and HOW it happens. You'd just have to watch it...but here are some SPOILERS!
Okay, most of the characters die.
The thing about his show though is how realistically everything is portrayed. If it were real life, you just feel that things would happen like that. That's real life. That's why I think you really come out of it depressed. However, it also has that quality of perseverance...I shall talk more about it later (in review, I hope)

Nadia
(Perhaps the second review?)
The show is great, but the sad moment is a SPOILER!
Jean gets shot. That and Marie's parents dying although that's less spoilerish.

Sad anime...also, others people have listed. Cowboy Bebop was escpecially good suggestion. I have others...but my post is already long.

Agreed, Grave of the Fireflies is one of the saddest films (not just Anime) I've ever seen.

Bebop also had a pretty tragic ending.

Also if you've seen Trigun then you already know about the character in my sig... Sad

GotF was depressing all the way through, if I were any less manly I would have cried at the end.

Other :

Cowboy Bebop's ending and some of the Faye moments at the end

NaTHaT, sadness▓

Saikano, the ending in particular but episode 9 was harsh

Grave of Fireflies is indeed extremely depressing. Terrific movie though.

It was the most depressing anime i had ever seen....until i saw Samurai X: Reflection. I watched all 95 episodes of the TV series, the "movie", the prequel OVAs, and then finally this. Man, a huge attachment to the characters by this point and they just let the viewer have it. I'm a 21 year old male, and i cried my eyes out the first time i watched it.

Now i realize not everyone is a fan of Kenshin. That's fine, but you should at least check out all of the OVAs. While the TV show is great, the OVAs are some of the best anime, if not THE best anime i've ever seen. Definately worth checking out. Just be warned about Reflection.

I watched the TV series up til the episode where **SPOILER** Shishio died.


*End Spoiler* Also I watched the movie. I haven't continute the series yet, or watched the OVA's but I've heard I'm severely missing out with the latter.

Edit by NR: Dammit, LiQuid! mark your spoilers :p

Yes, I did, in this action, resurrect one of the older threads available. However, I don't give a flying fuck. So a few days ago, I was hanging out with one of my friends at his place. He is a total japanophile, and, when I walked out the door, he surprised me with a copy of Grave of the Fireflies. I figured, whatever, I actually recognize the name of the studio. Flashback to childhood - My Neighbor Totoro (Not only one of the first movies I ever watched, and the first one I remember watching, but also my first anime ever) - and I'm like "Okay, I can handle it; its probably good..."

I finally got around to watching it today, and, not turned off by the cryptic name, I expected something not necessarily lighthearted (I have seen other films by this studio, in specific their front man... M... something... on Cartoon Network last year because they cut my Saturday pastime (watching crappy anime shows) and replaced it with a spotlight of that dude, and the movies were good, on the whole, if not as happy as Totoro). What I didn't expect was this. It is a very startling view of war from the invaded's point of view. It is scary - ominous - and on the whole, very depressing. Notwithstanding, I must admit, it is incredibly well done, and probably one of the better movies ever made, yet beyond that, it is simply sad. Well, tomorrow, I guess, I'll return this to my friend, and try to forget, at least, for a while.

I turned on the TV today and happend upon Oban Star Racers on Toon Disney. Man that show was SAD. I cried my eyes out and probably got filled with cancer. It was so depressing I wanted to kill myself. Not being very bright, I choked myself to unconciousness with a PS2 controller cable. I woke up and the show was over, so I'm still alive today.

For me there have only been 3 animes I've actually teared up on...

Grave of The Fireflies (If you've seen it you know, if you haven't seen it get it NOW it is one of the best pieces of cinema ever created)

Now and Then Here and There (This show is brutal to you mentally, It is still one of my all time favorite animes)

I's (Particularly the manga more-so than the anime. I highly recomend it if you're into more drama/story driven anime/mange vs. action. My favorite Manga to date)

I'm also gonna go with *spoiler* Roy Fokker's death in Macross/Robotech. Granted I was a kid when I saw it first but it's still fucking sad.

heh. My friends industrial design teacher apparently has the largest collection of Macross associated stuff in the entire world. Needless to say, he's also fucking rich. Heh. I just read the stuff about the Kenshin OVA's. That was the first anime series I ever really watched. It was a bit ago, but I can still remember that they sure weren't happy. Very gory, compared to the rest of the show.

I always thought the ending to Chrno Crusade was sad, but in a good way. That has prolly been the sadest Ive seen so far.

One of the saddest Anime Moments I can think of is actually watching Final Fantasy Unlimited. -_-

What's sad is that anime nerds are constantly talking about the saddest moments in anime. The only anime worth getting sad about is Grave of the Fireflies. Anyone who gets mopey when Spike or that dude with the cross from Trigun dies should just shoot themselves in the temple and be done with it.

Some guy in church last week gave a talk and was talking about how sad Grave of the Fireflies was, and how hard it made his sister cry. True story.

Shit, that movie made me so fucking sad. I actually felt like crying. I mean, that's not to say I cried, but I came close... GotF is definitely one of the sadder fictional films I've ever watched, in fact, probably the saddest. Normally I'm wise enough to keep away from the stuff that I can tell at a glance would make me sad. A lapse in judgment.

Wanna get really depressed? While not 100% true, GotF was based on true story. Sad
