I am curious if there are any anime that you have seen where the ending left you just absolutely reeling or off kilter? For me, Saikano was just nuts. I haven't seen a ton of super serious anime as I tend to gravitate to the more comedic ones but Saikano just made me completely bawl and I had crazy dreams afterwards for like a month lol.

thank god lucy was using spoilers, I never finished Ouran

Probably the ending to the original FMA. It was the anime that got me really into anime ... and hell to this day I remember how fucked I was after watching it. I went from ECCHI to FMA and I was heartbroken at the end. The original one mind you.

The ending to Neon Genesis Evangelion in the movie the End of Evangelion. It's extremely difficult to explain, but after watching the series it leaves you with a lot of conflicting emotions ranging from depression to asking "WTF did I just watch?" I'm not lying when I say that after watching End of Evangelion I spent the rest of the day feeling really depressed.

The other one would be the ending to the original 1997 Berserk anime. For anime only fans, the ending was a devastating surprise because
Of course if you read the manga or watch the new movies you know how that situation ended, but for everyone else who just watched the anime, it was a horrible and devastating ending

I'd have to say the most devastating end to an anime is when the anime doesn't have an end and gets cancelled.

By far Berserk 97'. I mean, Jesus Christ that ending was disturbing. First anime that made me seek out the manga just to see what happens afterwards. Because I couldn't accept that being the end.

Akame ga Kill was also one that ends on a shitty note.

The most devistating anime for me was Akane ga Kill. I know you didn't ask but the Girl May Kill manga ending hurt me on the inside

Possibly Phantom-Requiem for Phantom. It's not that I wasn't expecting it, it's just that after watching such a disturbing and distressing show, with such awful things happening to what were deep down good people, it was the kind of ending that said "Ok now that we've dragged you through hell for days and made you feel like shit, we're just going to put you out of your misery- bang!"
Yeah it kind of hurt.

This might not count for an ending but the last couple episodes of Future Diary were pretty messed up.

Also Akame Ga Kill. That ending was pretty depressing. On a side note, i wished they stuck to the manga for the ending (just my opinion though).

Definitely Akame ga Kill! If you haven't watched it, it is alright, but the ending?! Really?!
