There are a few tear jerkers. So I do cry, but not often. However, crying from laughing really hard seems far more likely.

I do. I usually watch the ones that are meant to have 'the feels' so I'm not surprised. >_<

one thing:

Angel Beats, cried like a little bitch

I do cry more than I care to admit but nothing as much as that show.

I cry sometimes. More often, I'll tear up but manage to hold it in. But there are a few anime that have legitimately made me weep. ex. Clannad, Hunter x Hunter, Your Lie in April. It's usually because of something sad happening to characters that I like.

Funnily, the first time I cried with Your Lie in April was in episode 2, but not because of anything sad. The musical performance was so beautiful that I was actually shedding tears. That never happened to me before, it was a neat experience.

I tend to cry the most at romance between characters that develop over time; where they are forbidden to be together. Or one of them actually dies at the end.

First off, screw you for making me tear up again at that gif. I've given up hope for a sequel that will find a way to save her and tucked all images of the ending into the vaults of my brain, and you pull one back out and remind me she's gone forever

Okay, so for me personally, here's what has made me tear up under the criteria that either tears were going down my cheeks, or my eyes were pooled up with water I had to blink away:
PLASTIC MEMORIES (good lord, don't watch this show unless you want a knife in the heart)
Gurren Lagann (surprisingly, the second major death late in the series after the same black widow moment gets me the most, more than the first death, and then the next big tearjerker for me is the waking up segment with the bros reunited and Yoko deciding to shut the love off in her life. Libera Me doesn't help during either of these segments either, lol)
Parasyte (this one is because I've had a chronic illness since 13 called Crohn's that made me miss high school and is preventing me from starting college, as well as requiring me to have an ostomy, aka a sack on my stomach that my small intestine defecates into, which I struggled with at first and then came to accept, ala the big relationship between Shinji and Migi. It's hard to put into words how this could make me cry, but it did, especially since I had named my little intestine bit that stuck out, haha)
Sword Art Online: Mother's Rosario arc (I hate to admit it since I think SAO is contrived and cliched, but the whole Yuki living through games thing hit me really hard, thanks to the Crohn's mentioned above. Pretty much went through the same thing as her, except I'm still alive)
Comet Lucifer (Even though I hated the ending, the Do-Mon part got those tears swelling up)
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (Just so much during this series. Like, I first watched this at I think 15, pretty much the year I got the major surgery that permanently changed my body forever, and among the normal tear-jerker moments in the series, it got me to tear up at times because it taught me that even with a "crippled" body, you can still go above and beyond what any "normal" person can do. And then there's the manga-only epilogue scene with Hohenheim and Trisha. That was just one panel, and it instantly turned me into a bawling baby)

That's all I can really think of at the moment... Sorry I went overboard and gave an explanation for each!

Also, Angel Beats, while a good series for me, didn't make me tear up at the end. I actually found myself smiling at the end because I felt it was a bittersweet ending, with both people finding each other once more. Same with the original death scene, it actually made me smile that he got everyone there to mark the organ donor cards, because with my medical condition, where the organs that can't really be replaced are targeted, I realize just how valuable people being organ donors can be. And then they prove it at the end. I found it to be a bittersweet, fulfilling conclusion, instead of crying, which is funny, because I'm normally the second-easiest to get to tear up with anime out of my friend group, but I am the only one who didn't tear up or bawl with Angel Beats. Just goes to show how life experiences can change people's feelings so much even.

I cry lot, most of times just a small tear, but sometimes in more emotional series I have to stop to finish crying

Just finished Wolf Children and yes I cried like a baby


Hey that sounds exactly like me! Mainly just a tear, but there are some that really make me cry too. Also Wolf Children is one of my favourite anime ever and I cried the most during that!

At the drop of a hat. Tragedies don't bother me, but emotional scenes will almost always bring a tear to my eye. The most tear-jerking moments of Clannad to me, for example, were
Unfortunately for my tear ducts, but fortunately for my enjoyment, these sorts of scenes are far more common in anime than traditionally tragic scenes are, so I'd say I cry way more than the average anime fan.

Sorry. I too tear up at that imagine and when thinking about Clannad After Story. Clannad isn't bad, but After Story will rip giant holes in the heart too. But for Plastic Memories:
Under spoiler so those who have not watched the show can be touched and surprised.

Definitely tear up (become emotional) but I've never full blown burst into tears, might happen once or twice in a anime season and depends how much I'm involved/invested in that series with it's characters.

hmmm there are a few anime's that have made me tear up and some that can make me tear up even after watching it multiple times. There have also been some anime's that i knew would make me cry like a bitch so i stop beforehand cause i just cant take the feels sometimes. When i watch anime i actually try to become part of there world because i like there worlds so much more than ours, theirs not a damn thing in our world that can make me cry.

Quite a bit. Well not that often. If I had to hazard a guess, i'd say probably once a year, or so? Roughly, maybe?

Heck, i've even cried tears of joys in some series (as well as the ordinary tears of sadness in another).

I'm not ashamed to cry, but it's rare for a show to influence me that much. If it does, I pretty much consider it a masterpiece (more often than not).

Ever since reading the Muv-Luv visual novel trilogy what i use to cry from hasn't been the same. Now it's like one tiny tear every once in a blue moon.

Clanaad After Story

I cried in a room full with three guy's actually as well as cheered like gamer gate loudly while everyone was sleeping fully unaware.
This is what began my journey into the world of the romance genre rather it was shoujo or harem it didn't matter, i just wanted the same experience again so i was willing to look anywhere for it.

Thank you for mentioning this. I didn't either but because i felt like the series was rushed mainly regarding Tenshi and Otonashi's relationship. More was actually planned for AB in the beginning but things didn't go as planned now years later we finally have a visual novel to finish the story.

I cry a lot watching anime, I can't even count how many anime made me cry (Not that i'm emotional xD)
Well, I can at least say the one who made me cry the most:

GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES // O TÚMULO DOS VAGALUMES // HOTARU NO HAKA



I swear I couldn't sleep, I cried the whole night and got depressed for the entire month.. damn, that was depressing.
