This made me laugh more than I expected. Now I would love a cross-over doujin.

Idk man, i mean it's not what you'd expect, but it's definitely not the most depressing anime ever.

There are lots of anime that peel back their innocent facade to reveal something truly depressing. Madoka Magica sortof starts out, well, not as dire as it ends. And one of my favorite anime Haibane Renmei comes to some really harsh revelations towards the end as well.

But for a happy anime, Non Non Biyori always cheers me up

I wouldn't really say School Live was all that depressing or dark at all. sure it had some dark moments and mindfuckery, but it was mostly about the SoL/"cute girls surviving the zompocalypse" than anything else.

Heck no.

Clannad, Eva, and Madoka are good ways to pull on your heartstrings. Umm, Grave of the Fireflies and any works by Gen Urobuchi is another way to get sad, lol.

You think that's bad. I dare you to watch School Days now then. That one is in my top 3 most messed up stories hehe. It all seems fun but to further you go to the end the more messed up it gets.

Clannad After Story, despite it's almost fan-service-y heart rending moments, is probably the most depressing anime I've ever watched. So much so I can't bring myself to watch it again. Air comes in a very close second but despite having my heart torn out and stomped on by the "Goal" scene there's something I find vaguely beautiful about it. Perhaps because it was a "good death". Unlike the ones in Clannad which just felt cruel and vindictive. Like the city wanted them to suffer.
