When I think of Fate/Stay Night that scene jumps out a lot for me probably since I'm used to seeing the happy ending where the male and female protagonist end up together in the end, which didn't happen in the anime. The end of Realta Nua saved the day when I saw it.

The ending to Angel Beats still gets me. Didn't think if I re-watched it again it'll have the same impact, boy I was wrong.

I had read the manga before, so it didn't have the same effect on me, but if I hadn't, I'm pretty sure I would have been stunned. My wife was shocked when she saw it. I still remember reading the manga and not quite believing what had happened, happened, until I read through the following chapter. And even with the happy ending, there's a persistent melancholy to the whole series that results from that early incident; a conscious realization that something had went terribly wrong in the world.

Japanese writing (and even a lot of writing in general) is full of cliche "death flags" that just can't seem to be avoided by most properties. What makes me feel really sad is when a sad scene happens, and it was neither predictable nor very spontaneous. The first sad scene, in retrospect, did have some predictors nodding to it; but at the time I was surprised that they actually decided to take that route. The second scene was pretty predictable, but the way the character most affected by the tragedy handled it made it really sad. That "yeah it sucks, but I'm accepting it," attitude just hits hard for garnering sympathy.
I got a kick out of TTGL, but always thought of it as a series I was getting too old for--but boy was it a fun ride as I watched it. The last scenes surprised me (and perhaps I always had underestimated the series) in a good sort of way--it was like a recognition that part of growing up is realizing that sad things happen, and sometimes we can do nothing about it.

It's been mentioned, but "Now and Then, Here and There" was also almost too much for me.

Episode 7 of Honey and Clover II. It's very overlooked because it's about side characters, but boy is the story heartbreaking nonetheless.

Kaze no Stigma: Last battle (Not sure which episode, kind of forgot)

When Kazuma asked Lapis what the last thought of Tsui Ling (his wife who had died)was, before she died. Lapis told him that Tsui Ling's last thought was that she wished Kazuma was dead too.

I have two nominees I don't see any mention of in the past dozen or so pages. One is the ending to the "Bakeneko" arc of Ayakashi Samurai Horror Tales where we learn the truth about why the mononoke is haunting the daimyo and his wife. The conclusion to the opening story in the sequel, Mononoke, comes close.

My other nominee is episode seven of Kemono no Sou-ja Erin, one of the most horribly tragic scenes I've ever watched in an anime.

I'll not reveal anything else about these to avoid major spoilers.

Da Capo II SS: When Otome and Yoshiyuki were at the Sakura Tree. There are 2 scenes like this, so I'm referring to both of them.

Air Movie: Gao~ off the wheelchair

Clannad After Story: Tomoya and Ushio at the sunflower field. Additionally, the scene with Nagisa and Tomoya in Tomoya's appartment (you know which one).

When I was little there was a Digimon episodes which was very, very sad. It talks about Ken Ichijoli, the first human villain who realized that he messed up really badly since he Digimon partner died trying to save him. He spends his time in the episode relating the dead of his partner with the one of his older brother. In the episode's end Ken starts recovering and talks with his parents for the first time in like 2 years.

I finished another series recently. The end of Shattered Angels, when Ku doesn't want a sad goodbye, but she realizes that she didn't want to die. Kyoshiro rushes to embraces her before she disappears, but when he reaches her, she's already gone.

I don't know that I hold any particular scene as the saddest. There have been plenty that tugged at my hearstrings a little. I'll just pluck one by random here:

Ray's death in Eureka 7, as she lays there bleeding out, and struggles to reach her decapitated arm and hand, upon which her wedding ring sits, and then explosions devour her before she can even have that last bit of comfort.



(Though, in a somewhat morbid way, I simultaneously loved that the director choose to kill her before she could take solace in her ring).

i take it saddest here means only saddest not emotional
well there are many sad moments in many animes now and then, but for me the most saddest would be

Chrono Crusade :ending and other few scenes in the anime as well
Clannad/Clannad Afterstory: many moments in both the anime, and of course Tomoya and Ushio scene in the snowfield

Naruto/Shippuden:
Lee's past,Gaara vs Lee
Neji's past,Neji vs Kidomaru
Itachi's truth, when sasuke learns about itachi from the masked guy(obito)
..................and there are many other moments from this name


these would be it ..for now.

Spoiler for reason:


I had never cried so much. Ever. My muscles were seriously in pain.

And Kemono no Souja Erin episodes 6 & 7. Cried to those two episodes nearly as much as I did for Tokyo Mag.

Out of all the shows I've seen so far I think that Clannad takes the cake with the saddest scenes for me. The second season in particular completely crushed me near the end since I was completely unaware of what would happen after

Spoiler for You really DON'T want to read this if you plan to watch Clannad:


Heck, listening to Dango Daikasoku still leaves me a bit misty eyed.

Another anime that really hit me was 5cm per Second. This one is just brutal.

Spoiler for 5cm per second ending:


It struck a chord with me and again, hit me quite hard. Brilliant movie that one on virtually all accounts.

Ef: Tale of Memories/Melodies should be mentioned as well. In particular:

Spoiler for Ef: Tale of Memories/Melodies:


Ef is also the show that made me a Shinbou fan.

There were other shows that hit me as well like Chrono Crusade whose ending (and ending theme) left me a bit melancholic. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann also has a very powerful ending that left me a bit saddened which was a bit unexpected after how insanely hyperactive the show managed to be on a whole.

Kanon and Air are also worthy of mention obviously for the strong Key/KyoAni drama they presented. The first in particular had some pretty strong scenes at the end of a couple of the main arcs.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien also deserves a mention due to the storyline itself. It's just sad from start to finish. Oh and True Tears, don't forget that one.

And of course how could I forget Aria: The Origination? The simple fact that it ended was enough to sadden me but what happens overall, while obviously not sad by any definition of the word (it's actually quite joyous imho), managed to turn me melancholic.

Spoiler for aria ending:


Curiously the best healing anime I have ever seen managed to leave me with such a bitter-sweet feeling when it ended.

EDIT: btw, honorable mention to Gungrave. I should really rewatch that show.

EDIT2: Ok, something that's been bothering me. Time and time again people claim Elfen Lied as one of the saddest animes they've seen. I've watched the show but didn't find it particularly sad. I think I might be missing something. Was I just that desensitised by the time I got to it or is this a case of the anime falling short of the source material?
