As others have said: read/watch any other available material in the series. Manga, novels, OVAs, what have you. And you could always get into fanart and fanfics, if that's your thing.

Last anime I had deep PAD over was prolly... Pet Girl of Sakurasou. I became super attached to that show over time, and when it ended, it felt like a part of my heart had crumbled up and died. So I read the manga. And then I hunted down the light novels. It's always sad when it gets to light novels, though, because of the scarcity of English translations. Still stuck on volume 5 for Sakurasou...

Same thing always happen to me. I was devastated after Bleach finished. But then I started reading the manga and that's what I suggest you do.
Read the manga, the light/visual novel or play the video game of the adaptation of the anime that you just finished/

I hear yah dude, I usually get depressed at an anime that I can relate to (perhaps a character who is like me in some [if not all] ways. Like I recently just watched this one on Netflix called 'B Gata H Kei "Yamada's First Time"' and the guy character I related to in a lot of ways, and the finale (I won't spoil) somewhat brought a tear to my eye, and typing/thinking about it now is kinda depressing haha
But do what everyone says, read the manga/visual novel that it was inspired by, watch a different anime (perhaps even a different genre then what you just watched), or find something to take your mind off of it.

That's what I do.... Sometimes it will be something unrelated, like a movie.

Get into the manga or whatever the anime was based on. You could also get into a new series to help you with that.

If I actually find myself getting really sad over an anime ending, then I just start watching it over again until I find something else. :3

The only anime I really felt depressed after finishing was Clannad. Really the only anime I've gotten so emotionally invested in that I cried when it was over. The day after I finished Clannad was sort of surreal because I wondered how everyone could go about their day and be so oblivious to what I've seen.

At the end of the day though, you just move on and do other things while keeping memories from your favorite anime.

Try to forget it and start another addicting anime.

Take a break. Anime burnout is rampant.

you can always rewatch it, or watch another one. or just be like me and make as many memes and jokes about a heartbreaking depressing ending as possible so you can't take that anime seriously ever again and you're no longer vulnerable

this is a common occurrence. Eventually you'll find something else whether it be another hobby or just another anime and you'll get over it. If not, feel free to PM me. :-P
