Nero and Patrash's "going to visit their grandfather" ending scene from World Masterpiece Theater anime, "Dog of Flanders"

It's one of those animes that if you ask Japanese people, the top response will be this.

I would say the death of nina and alexander @ FMA, but i guess thats because i saw that recently ... i think there are sadder deaths, but its been some time since i watched them so they appear less sad than they actually were when i watched the show for the first time

It's when the little girl dies in Grave of the Fireflies. It's always sad when kids die.

This entire thread needs to be wrapped in one big [spoiler] tag.

There's actually a previous thread on the same topic, but I didn't post in that, so I guess I will post it here.

Fair enough....The "Dog of Flanders" here is from the original World Masterpiece Theater TV-series

Nero and Patrash goes through 52 episodes of harsh realities, and never giving up...their "true friend," their grandpa dies during the series.

The last several episodes are the most touching...

Ep. 48: Nero loses his job as a milk carrier due to false rumors that Nero was the arsonist who set the town windmill on fire.

Ep. 49: With his source of income gone, his last chance of survival is to win an art contest and win the prize.

Ep. 50: On Christmas Day, Nero and Patrash are evicted by the landlord as they don't have enough money to pay the rent. Nero uses his last money to go to the museum where he sent in his art. His art was rejected in the screening process.

Ep. 51: Nero has no more money left to buy food. Coset drops 2000 francs that he borrowed from the bank (Coset was especially mean towards Nero in the arson rumor incident). Nero finds 2000 francs, but truthfully returns the found cash to Coset. Coset, thanks Nero dearly and apologizes for everything that had happened. Patrash sees Nero and chases after him

Ep. 52: Coset learns the truth about the windmill fire from Noel...wasn't done by Nero and was done by Hans' mishandling of the equipment. Everyone who has come into contact from the past 50 episodes, whether good or bad, comes to see, take care, and apologize to Nero. An art dealer from Antwerp, Hendrick Lay comes to town to offer Nero a scholarship to a prestigious art school. But...it's all to late. Nero and Patrash died of hypothermia in a church.

Nero and Patrash's "death" -
Nero and Patrash leaves into the darkness of the night from Coset's house after truthfully returning 2000 francs.

Nero and Patrash seeks refuge at an abandoned church. Cold, hungry, and exhausted, Nero whispers into Patrash's ear in front of the stained-glass St. Mary - "Patrash, you must be cold. I'm tired too...I'm sooo sleepy....Patrash...." And seven angels comes to take Nero and Patrash away.


The difference between the original story, the TV anime, and the movie anime is this "death scene." The World Masterpiece Theater producers didn't want to portray "death" as bluntly as the original story was since it was too saddening for such a beloved series. In the original story, Nero whispers to Patrash "I'm so sorry I couldn't feed you...I did everything I could...but I am tired....oh, you too Patrash....well Patrash, it's our turn to go...will you die with me....Patrash..."

So the word "death/die" was never used and was symbolically portrayed by the arrival of seven angels coming to "receive" Nero and Patrash.

The difference between the TV version and the movie version is that Nero and Patrash are received by "Seven Angels" (TV) or "Three Heavenly Bodies - Holy Father, Son, Ghost" (movie).

This is, according to Japanese popular research, the most saddest anime in our minds.

Ahh, I think the saddest deaths were both Wolfwood and Legato from Trigun. Both of their death's were incredibly dramatic, probably the saddest deaths I have seen on any television show, anime or not.

I mean, Wolfwood sitting in a church crying with a huge cross hanging over his shoulder.........im getting a tear just thinking about it . And Legato just seemed so innocent when he died, even though he was all evil and stuff. Plus the characters were SO COOL! It sucks to see cool characters die..
