Ummm, I guess you just connect to the characters in anime more than in other shows?
Nothing wrong with that, that's the best part of anime~

.... you should try /marginal-4-the-animation, /kamigami-no-asobi, and K (not on Crunchy, but it's on Netflix and Hulu), you might like them~

I used to get very depressed after finishing an anime that I liked, but now I have learned to just move on to the next show and continue the ride.

I think most anime fans feel that way after finishing certain shows. Don't worry though, you'll grow numb to it eventually. That, or you'll develop a type of masochistic pleasure from it.

Let me start with you have good taste. Unless you're a person who lewds the dragons of course.
Anyways, all these shows you listed are comedy with either a touch of drama with Monster Girls, or a bunch of drama at the end of Chuunibyou. Naturally the comedy makes you happy and the drama can make you feel sad. Helps a bunch when it establishes the characters and makes them all likable too, which all of these shows do well. Basically it means the story writers did their jobs in adding in drama to a comedy/drama show right.
It's fine to feel like that everytime you watch a good show btw. Once you get to watching tearjerkers There will be invisible onion ninjas in your house that follow you and my eyes were definitely just sweating, totes not crying during the ending of... a lot of series

it's perfectly normal to feel like that as anime just makes you feel so connected to the characters over the course of the series that you feel connected to them more than you do with real people which is why anime is so special it can make you have feelings for fictional characters so when it all ends it's like you lost a part of yourself and the way some series ends you just didn't want it to end or didn't want it to end that way it did

Because it's sad that humans turn to 2D coping mechanism to indulge in fantasy than realize it's 100x better than real life. That the only reason you indulged in it in the first place was to run away from reality just awhile. Now that it's gone you're left with emptiness forced to retreat to your horrible 3D life.
