I thought I have seen a similar thread to this in this forum, oh well....

Well I somehow have similar answers to the ones above but my answer will be in chronological
MOVIE /OVA
1. Rurouni Kenshin Reflection OVA
2. Grave of the Fireflies
3. Berserk second movie ending- most recent
and there was a another movie in the past 2 years ... a flying one

and for a series that started good but the end just kill you was

3. Gantz
4. Elfen Leib
5. Phantom

I know there are more but I usually try not to remember them lol
So far none of the new series from last year and current got me depressed...yet

I'm a bit confused as to what you mean by "depressed."

If, going by your description, you mean a series that I loved so much that I was just sad that it was over, then my pick would be Kemono no Souja Erin . By the time you finish that series you feel like you've grown up with the main character, and its sad to see it end. Plus the show itself had some pretty sad moments in it.

If by "depressed" you just mean that depressing feeling that's not quite like sorrow, then I'd have to go with either Welcome to the NHK , or Serial Experiments Lain . I would also include Elfen Lied, but I never finished it, just because it was too depressing to watch. (Subject matter was too intense for me).

Edit: I'm tempted to add Hell Girl as well. But I think that one is more frustrating than depressing (just because there are so many jerks)

Clannad & Clannad After Story by far... they were so good, but so sad too.

WEll depression is a state of low mood, includes feelings of being sad , down , blue ,hopeless , empty , helpless,hurt which can lead you to loss appetite or overeat etc etc

So ideally the question be rephrased to what anime made you feel depressed the most .

I'd have to say I found that Kenshin OVA depressing too but not very much. I think it lacked punch for me though because the OVA creators seemed like they were trying to tell the most depressing story possible. Also it was so against the tone of the series. I really liked the first OVA for its art though.

Also someone mentioned Bokura Ga Ita. I read the manga instead of watching the anime and it was definately sad.

I've always wanted to watch this series but I keep hearing about how the ending seemed unclear and just depressing. Is the 'unclear' part true?

And for me probably Angel Beats...but then again I'm not thinking too hard about it. But I just really think that show was well done from start to finish. That's why I was sad it ended soooo soon. Could it have gone for more episodes? Yes. Should it have gone for more episodes? I kinda feel like maybe. It was really, really good though.

no, the ending's quite clear. it's just depressing as hell. unlike most Key stories, Air has no happy ending.

dang that sucks but for a key anime I'll just have to push through the sadness. Sad endings suck but confusing endings in not knowing what the heck happened at the end is even worse for me lol.

well, it'll be over quick, at least since it's only 13 episodes. and the worst part is near the ending anyways, so you won't have to watch another episode while stewing in sadness like Clannad.

I have watched a handful of depressing anime..

The only one that really sticks out as.. I actually shed tears was Kanon.

Though there was plenty of other holy crap that is sad moments.

They are on my list, but I haven't been in the mood to watch Clannad or Air as of yet.. so they might beat out Kanon.



Otherwise...
Angel Beats
Elfen Lied (had its moments)
Chrono Crusade (memory is foggy but I remember being sad)
Welcome to the N.H.K. (Because I too am a shut-in)
Toradora!! (I remember getting damn close to tears once)

School Days was depressing because of how crap it was. Though the one thing they did right was make Kotonoha's eyes express how dead inside she felt. I had similar eyes while watching it.

I'm surprised that no one has said Code Geass. I don't know how you could NOT find it depressing. I mean, it was the perfect anime. It had the action, suspense, war, random awkward moments, love-y moments/broken hearts, betrayal, lying, secret identities, and did I mention action/suspense? and the end that made you cry a river... And then the amazingness of the series ended, which made it even more depressing. ugh. Thinking about it depresses me. It was an emotional rollercoaster that I could watch over and over and still love.
