Usually if it had something to do with a parent losing a child.

Take a manga like Hoshi wa Utau where you have a MC who tries so hard to build a life around herself with people who aren't fit to lick her shoe. And just gets devastated over and over. It's crushing.

Cause for Happy tears/tears of Joy
1) Camaraderie - When someone (be it a friend, parent, teacher, etc.) sticks up for/protects/makes a wish come true for someone else. Somehow this is always a tear jerking moment for me as I've not had the pleasure of experiencing it myself in the past, but have wished for. Anime like Naruto, Fairy Tail, Natsume yuujincho come to mind.

2) Reunions/chance meeting - Meeting a loved one after a long time, or for the first time.


3) Recognition/Opening up - This has to have special circumstances to make me tear up...
This ->
made me cry like a child.


Cause for tears due to sadness/pain/negative emotions
1) Being ignored - One who is ignored despite giving it their best in any endeavor tears me up. Recognition is something everyone yearns for, and not being given enough of it after working one's heart out to achieve something is just painful (this hits home).

Not many more negative emotions that I can think of to be honest. Negative emotions tend to burn me up with anger, rather than melt my heart.
