The saddest anime that I have seen would have to be anything by Key Visual Arts, such as Air, Kanon 2006, Clannad, Clannad After Story, and Angel Beats.

I did cry at the end of Ano Hana but the anime, as a whole, was more frustrating than sad. I was also thinking of mentioning Welcome To The N.H.K., but I'm having the same problem with the screwed up characters. It's depressing...but it's making me want to crush somebody's skull!

Also, I've been hearing a lot of stuff about Grave of the Fireflies and Now and Then, Here and There...but I haven't seen them. They're on my list after I finish Welcome To The N.H.K.

Quite a few actually.

Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, Clannad, Brigadoon (or as I like to call it, Brigadoom) Gunbuster and the Super Robot Wars OVA (Lamia.. ) Forgot 5cm per Second too.

Maybe Tekkaman Blade if you don't take II as canon.

Clannad was really sad.

But not good. It was really bad, actually.


Actually, anything by Key is pretty bad.


Only focuses on visuals on tugging on your heartstrings, throws realism to the wind.

I mean, honestly, how old is Nagisa? Shut up about the dangos already. You're not a child. Grow the fuck up. I truly wanted to kill that little bitch.

Most Key characters are just walking clichés or fountains of moe that are about as realistic as me becoming God anytime soon.

No contest, Grave of the Fireflies/Hotaru no haka. Prob because its based on what really happened with the war. It's a very well done movie, but I've only watched it once because I don't know if I could take watching it more!

Grave of the Fireflies didn't make me sad, it made me mad.

The saddest anime I've seen is Air. Second runner up is Full Moon o Sagashite.

Let me add an adendum to this. After I watched Air for the first time I had to call in sick to work because I was literally so sad I had a mental breakdown. No other anime has affected me like that.


I think this thread is very sad. Very very sad indeed. It used to be when people would post threads like this on anime boards you'd get the same 3 answers.

Grave of the Fireflies
Air
Full Moon o Sagashite

Looking back through the thread the fact that nobody listed Full Moon but me is very sad. Everyone here. Everyone, stop what you're doing and go watch Full Moon o Sagashite.

Likewise, for reasons I explained in a similar thread, which I will briefly recap below:
