Heya, fellow anime watchers!

I was wondering if there is any anime that can be compared to how sad Clannad is? I've been searching and watching a lot at sad animes these days, but it seems that I really can't get as touched as I got from watching Clannad by any of them. Is there anyone who know of such anime, if it really exist one ?

Hmmm. Let's see. You can watch 5 Centimeters Per Second and cry your eyes out, but it's more like a movie.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (Anohana) was really sad for me too. Ef: a tale of memories was pretty sad if I recall correctly too, but it's been years since I've watched it.

That's about it for me. I try and stay away from animes that make me want to buy 100 puppies to surround myself with so I don't die of depression. Lmao

Hm, Clannad was quite a sad series, but oddly enough, there were some others that I personally found to be much sadder. I guess I'm just weird like that, lol. Anyway, some of those series which I found to be quite sad (at least for me) were

Fruits Basket - especially for me. I felt like crying in like 20 of the 26 episodes
Kemono no Souja Erin
Fractale
certain parts of Welcome to the NHK
Most of Makoto Shinkai's movies (like The Place Promised in our Early Days)

There were some other series whose endings I found sad, but i feel like giving their names would kind of spoil the ending.

Elfen Lied also seems to be quite sad. I stopped watching it though because I felt like a part of my soul was dying with each episode (not necessarily from sadness as much as sheer pain or anger lol).

Kanon 2006 is nice, Air tv you might get touched by the last arc so give that one a try, AnoHana is a great one, Grave of the Fireflies is a sick tear jerker, hmmm thats all i think of right now. There all good though, i myself as well is searching for sad anime as i find there stories more profound.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 was sad, I think. And I remember shedding some tears on Moshidora.
