There are many scenes in Toppa Tengen Gurren Lagann that really pulled at my heart strings.

I find it's hard for an anime to be generally sad as they are usually too long for that, there are certainly impacting scenes in them though. But the saddest things for me are usually manga/games (Tomoyo After & The Hotel are recent ones that come to mind for manga, and MinDeaD BlooD for games).

However I would say Fullmetal Alchemist and Code Geass have overarching themes of sadness to them, for me at least. For both of them it's probably the theme of losing innocence or happy and peaceful days, and there's just no way it can ever be like that again. A meloncholic atmosphere would be more appropriate.

Thinking of sad anime Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu comes to mind, a 6 episode anime OVA. Definately bittersweet.
