Question New anime that'll make me cry!

I'm looking for a Romance/Drama anime that really will make you cry, and I mean really cry. It was a long time since I was so heavily influenced by anime and now I feel I had enough of all rigid, unfeeling shows where the concept is about a nerdy, lonely teenage girl's struggle amongst bullying beauty queens, the perfect, self-righteous guy with an ego the size of the Indian Ocean, that always had an eye on her, but never dared to admit his love for her because in reality he's really shy and unsure of himself.

So give me something with an kick-ass storyline!

And yeah, I don't really mind if the "big drama that will make me cry" is that the main character dies and leaves her/his lover behind, but that's just so sad so I would prefer something that's more .. alive. But like I said, I really don't mind so if you got something like that, tell me! As long as I will make the pillow a little wet

Please bear with me and my useless english

[ There's a link in my signature that will show you my animelist so you'll know what I'm currently watching and what I've watched already ;D]

How about Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom?
Not really a romance show but has implications, but still realistic and dark story about assasins. Has a good story and great cast of characters, at one point you hate them yet at another start to feel sorry. Has several dramatic and tence moments.
And some shooting action.

Let me know if you liked it when you are done.

Also duno if you tried but how about Clannad, season 2 highlights romance drama the best. The guy doesn't have huge ego and the girl isn't fighting against beauty queens.

Ga-Rei Zero maybe... it is more friendship based but has romance too together with sword action.

First that come up to my mind are Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and True Tears. I' don't know if they'll make you cry, but in my opinion they stand out as romance drama out there.

Oh goodness, I'm extremely new to anime myself so I don't have a whole lot of suggestions, but I've heard that Elfen Lied is a real tear jerker if you can withstand large amounts of blood, gore, and nudity.

Ah yeh, Elfen Lied would go quiet well... though it's not new one. I myself watched it 4 years ago.

Eh, true. It's still one of the most emotional and raw animes I've seen, it comes to mind whenever someone mentions dramatic animes, not to mention gorey.

And sorry for spelling it wrong the first time; I didn't meddle with spellcheck. =P

Bokura ga Ita jumps to mind, if you haven't already seen it. The manga is even worse (better?)...

Cross Game definitely a tear jerker right from the first episode.

Clannad You'll need to get to the second season for the tears. My own way of thinking about it is: First Season = laughter, second season = Tears. If I was marketing it in the US I'd call it "Laughter and Tears".

Honey and Clover Very moving and emotional

Chrono Crusade Classic Greek Tragedy - Pride goeth before the fall.

Neon Genesis Evangelion - Life sucks. And then you die. Go huddle in a corner, whimpering as you contemplate the awfulness of life.

Masion Ikkoku By the end you'll be crying the good kind of tears. That's how happy you are.

I'll second Clannad, though I cried during both seasons personally . Also Seconding Angel Beats and if you end up liking those they I'd suggest the other two Key Series, Kanon 2006 and Air T.V.

NANA is the show you must watch. There's some depressing moments at the start, though once you pass a certain part of the story which is about half way in, it's full of heavy and depressing from there. You'll spend each episode in tears, i'm sure.

Fantastic show, really. Worth your time.

why does everyone wants to cry?
It's damn Christmas and New Year guys, cheer up!

Clannad is a must for you.
Angel Beats made me cry like no other anime.
Toradora may fit for your description.


Maybe Macross Frontier? Very nice action,plot and romance + songs kick ass, so definitely watch hit. It also fits your "crying girl" description , but not that much.

Clannad was the first anime that made me cry so much, I remember crying through an entire episode none stop... and then repeated the same one because it was so moving.

An other one that will make you sad or cry is Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien

There is a few more, but these are two from the top of my list.

School Days might make you cry for the injustice done to one of the girls, but it also make you angry.
