Hi, everyone. I just finished Your Lie in April. It was so powerful, I loved it. Just wondering if anyone had recommendations for other emotionally powerful anime?

I've already seen Clannad/After Story, Kanon, and Anohana.

Urm, I only know that Say "I love you" is quite a good romance anime if you're intrested....

I honestly thought that this was pretty emotionally powerful. It deals with androids having human emotions and it really made me question what it means to be human.

None of these are quite as powerful or sad as the ones you mentioned, but all are solid romances some good drama mixed in, and all do have their emotional moments:

Kimikiss: Pure Rouge
Kokoro Connect
ef: Tale of Memories
Myself; Yourself
Nagi no Asukara
Love, Chuunibyo, and Other Delusions
The World is Still Beautiful
Toradora
Golden Time
Kotoura-San

If you don't mind older series, try:
Maison Ikkoku
Itazaru na Kiss
Aishiteruze Baby

Nobody said Ano Natsu?! Photo Kano is another good one.

I saw one other person mention Nodame Cantabile. Great musical tale with good romance as well.
