    Saddest Anime you've watched?

    Post by Wolfkeys on Sat Apr 06, 2013 10:00 am

    I am kinda new here lol don't think this has been done.

    I just re-watched one of my favourite animes which i also consider to be the saddest, i think it's the only anime i've shed tears, (manly tears of course), definitely recommend it to any anime fans out there
    silly
    Spoiler:

    Wolf's rain

    In a post-apocalyptic future where humans live in domed cities surrounded by wasteland, wolves are assumed to be two hundred years extinct.


    What's yours?

    Wolve's Rain as well. The concept itself is saddening, nevermind the actual thing.

    You should, and prepare to break out the tissues. I've also heard that Clannad is similarly sad.

    To brighten up the sad mood, how about I mention a happy, insane anime? Nichijou is great, and it's pretty funny too, but it stopped airing in the same year it started, 2011. sad

    Unfinished? Well, there was 26 episodes, enough to cover 1 season. Unfortunately, it just wasn't popular enough.

    I heard about Nichijou from a friend and watched a few clips on Youtube, good stuff. Sadly, my girlfriend doesn't agree, she thinks Lucky Star contains enough random for her silly

    It's always a shame when they stop working on an anime, kinda like D Gray man, they just stopped. At least the manga was complete.

    Lucky Star LOL!

    Saddest I've liked is wolfs rain. Others that could be argued as sadder generally fail to engage me.

    Only 1 anime has made me cry, but that wasn't sadness.

    Clannad is VERY sad, it's also my favorite anime ever. I rewatched the whole series a couple of days ago, in 1 day XD

    Well Requiem from the Darkness had some sad, though often melodramatic story.

    That whole incest story with the sister jealous of her younger sister being closer to their dad sexually was pretty saddening.

    Without too much Melodrama I'd probably go with Cowboy Bebop, maybe Akira. I don't know, I haven't really seen much anime that wasn't trying way too *** hard to be sad.

    Sexy Commando Gaiden. It really tugged on my heart strings. Um, for real probably Welcome to the NHK or the easy answer Grave of the Fireflies. I don't really like those Key(Clannad,Air,ext) anime, they come off as overly dramatic and corny to me.

    In my opinion Cowboy Bebop has some really sad and bittersweet moments, but I probably wouldn't classify it as a Sad Anime.

    Modoka is absolutely *** tragic, but I dunno if it qualifies as sad.

    Wolf's rain was very dramatic/sad and very good.
    Air and Clannad were very good but I saw Kanon first (the original version, not the remake), and I have better memories of it.
    These Key animes are not that sad imo, the fact there is too much cliché makes them good, or very good, but not the best. I couldn't finish Clannad, it was too much like Kanon and I got bored by the characters that were almost the same than in Kanon. Air was a bit different but not that much.

    The saddest I've ever watched should be Honey & Clover (both seasons). And it's also one of my favorite. It's more mature and it's easier to identify oneself with the characters.
    I've watched hundreds of animes series an this one is clearly in my top selection.

    Valkyria Chronicles (the first one). It's a PS3 exclusive, but fits here perfectly. I'm hard to move but this game... this f*cking game... sad

    Makes you attached and love your peeps, then rips them apart.

    I heard the sequels sucked and the anime was horrible.

    Angel beats, it is really sad in the last few episodes.

    Also has cute girls in it. It's pretty good, about 16 episodes.
