Angel Beats twice (Effin' Yui and the ending)
Katawa Shoujo (Does that count?)
Clannad After Story
Madoka Magica
Dusk Maiden Of Amnesia

If I cry to it, I'm too emotionally involved, I'm grown! And grown black men don't cry unless their rights are being abused!

I've never cried while watching a live action movie/show, But I've cried during shows like Clannad, Angel Beats, Pet Girl, Kurokami, Code Geass, and Sunday without God. Those are the ones off the top of my head.

I cry to a lot of things. I easily get emotionally invested in a story.

Movies I've cried to:
Titanic
Castaway
Grave of the Fireflies
(and others)

Anime I've cried to:
Silver Spoon
Gosick
AnoHana
(and others)

Other things I've cried to:
Books and short stories
Documentaries (all the damn time)
Non-anime shows
And... As much as I hate to admit it... Lifetime/Hallmark movies.

Anime touches me differently than any other media. I tend to get really caught up right as I'm about to finish an anime and kinda break down. When I finally finished Bleach I really didn't know what to do because I had watched it for so long haha.

I've never outright cried, in-fact seems like it's almost impossible for me to release the floodgates fully, but I certainly get very teary and pouty along with the characters. It's relatively the same for both styles; those super-intense emotional moment. Whether happy, angry, or sad just seeing those tear ducts just flood makes mine want to break too, lol.

I have cried more to anime than I have to live-action works, but I have cried to both. It's more difficult to pull off a good tear-jerking scene with actors, as there's more that they're required to 'get right' to make it a good scene. That, and most of the live-action shows I watch are North American, and as someone has said already, we westerners tend to focus more on action and suspense in our fiction - or plunge right into cheesy melodrama.

I get the misty eyes or the stoic tear running down my face for quite a few anime series actually. I'm a sucker for emotional self sacrifice scenes in Shonen like a few Naruto Shippuden episodes, or parts of Gurren Lagann. Also just for regular touching stuff too like Anohana or Angel Beats. Clannad was a little crazy for me though, it's the only anime where I didn't just get the misty eyes, it was like serious crying my eyes out.


Any series that can give me a large emotional response in some way is pretty good in my book. It's probably what keeps driving me to watch more.

For live action....yeah I don't know. I can't even remember the last time I was emotionally involved with the story or characters of any particular series. When someone dies in a network drama or something it's just like "ah so that happened." Just don't care very much. Movies might move me a little bit more...but even then not nearly to the extent anime has lately.

H2O got me in tears on the last episode, Erin made me cry on two episodes, and Natsume Book of Friends with the firefly and the cat girl (Happy tears). I noticed anime gets me to cry easier than movies mainly because the characters feel more real and you have more feelings for the characters then with live action because usually you dont get to know the character and get a connection with said character unless they do a 3 movie set where suddenly Will Turner dies and its all slow-mo with sad music.
