Of course, the VN did that to me as well. I was already crying my hearts out of the VN before watching the After Story, so it didn't make it into my "anime" list (and into the "VN" list instead). Same thing with Little Busters.

Chouji’s “dying” scene after he fought Jiroubo in Naruto (when it was still a very great show).

I’ve never felt that moved and shed manly tear watching a shounen before. At that point, I haven’t read the manga so it kinda surprised me. The execution of that scene is just superb (if not perfect) and with great score too. Not even a certain character’s death in Gurren Lagann (big fan here) is able to move me as much. On the other hand, sad scenes in mellow anime shows (Clannad and its kin) didn’t hit me as hard since I can already see some tragic/sad/heartwrenching scenes coming a mile away from feeling the tone of the anime alone. I guess the “element of surprise” also plays important role in order to make me moved.

I take it you haven't played it then? It's a mix of everything really, though I wonder if I may have spoiled it by mentioning it here. But really, it's Key and in Key you can expect a tear-jerker or two


Regarding TTGL...
I'm not very sure, cause I only watched this after somewhat heavily spoiled. And most of the tears I shed there were "manly tears". I'm not sure how to describe it, but it's different kind of sad than what I get from the likes of Air or Clannad.

I'm glad you said it, because I wanted to say it too.

Clannad did not make me sad. I wanted to be sad, but it was so predictable and they were so clearly trying very hard to make it sad that I just couldn't do it. They just kept piling it on the MC and almost immediately I stopped caring because it was so distracting to me. When I saw what was happening I just couldn't stop seeing the clear intention to make the audience cry. I acknowledge that it was depressing and that people get that lot in life sometimes, but it just wasn't working for me.

Angel Beats did have some sad stuff in it, but mostly with the side characters. The backstories were sad, but beyond that there's not much to be sad about. I felt like most of it was wish fulfillment and thus happy. I think the one that got me more was Yui. There was just something very sad about all of that, and I suspect it was the contrast in her character that really sold it.

Last two episodes of Aria the Origination:

Spoiler for ending:


It was the good kind of sadness though. It made the journey to get to that point all the more meaningful. The wistful beauty of the moment is precisely because it is such a fleeting, temporary thing. This is the one show I've seen that perfectly reflected that aesthetic in its entirety.

2. Saikano.
Akemi. And the rest of the anime after the elope.

3. KimiNozo
"The Gift of Mayauru."
Ok, I have to admit that Akemi hit me so hard that nothing I watched later came near to her. (I never watched Saikano even again, well ever because it was a really slow show).
The thing that came closer was actually Kiminozo. Another very sad moment.

Don't know if later on I got used to it, in the sense that becoming more aware of the anime standards, I could foresee them, loosing in that way the impact, or those were really something else. Not that I didn't find anything sad later, simply not at the same level of.

Deaths are always sad, especially when it's a dominant and lovable character. So I'll try and pick something out that doesn't involve death:

Simoun, episode 2 hit me hard when Elly had to basically determine her entire life in a single choice that can't be undone. Due to her very understandable indecision, the choice is basically made for her. . . Seeing her crying afterwards from the pressure and uncertanties of what may come and if it was truly alright to let such a monumental choice be made for her definitely got my symphathy and had my emotions going.

Measuring by how much I cried, I'd say Saikano. One of the later episodes, can't remember, but oh... oh...

Just an FYI that this thread got merged with an existing thread about "Saddest Anime". You can now use this thread to discuss both the "saddest anime" and "saddest anime scenes".

Spoiler:


But Clannad, Angel Beats and Air are also one of them

Elfen Lied: Both the manga and the anime
Clannad: Just the anime. There are many sad parts of it in my eyes I can't number them. (I'm not done watching it yet)

I just started watching anime recently so I don't have much feels inbound on me yet since
I'm just started back watching it again

This may just be me, but the scene where Saber tells Shirou that she loves him before she returns to her own timeline at the end of Fate/Stay Night.

^ Haha, Shirou is pretty disliked from what I gathered from the Fate Stay/Night threads. That's why the chances of someone feeling anything during that scene, as you said, is rare.

But, having said that, I too thought it was quite sad. I was especially invested in Saber's character. Shirou was OK with me.
