The only manga that got me close to crying was one piece wend they show the crew tragic past especially name and chopper. That said i only read shonen so sennin manga might be more tragic. And the anime that was gintama especially wend okitas sister died . So how about you what made you cry.:wtf

To be honest, in Naruto, there are some preety good ones...
forexample, the most touching one for me was this.

When Jiraiya died. What a ture hero he was, his flashback chapter was just amazing, Minato naming his son Naruto after Jiraiya's book etc...he never gave up at the end, he went out with a bang! That's what I call a true hero, it was really sad though when the chapter was ending...though he will be greatly missed in our hearts.

Also I found the Gaara flashbacks in Part 1 sad as well. There was a chapter when Gaara was young, some kids were playing football and when the football went over the roof(I think) they couldn't get it but Gaara used his sand to retrive it and gave the ball back to him. They called him a monster and everything like that...he tried to explain but then he injured that girl. What I hated was when he tried to give the ointment to her and when she opened the door, she slamed the door in his face and told him to get lost! That was sad man...sad times, and when he got betrayed by his closest friend...:(

The most recent time when I was moved close to tears was in Area no Kishi

When Kakeru and Suguru were in the accident, and it killed Suguru and Kakeru only survived by taking Suguru's heart. The reactions of the family and friends was sad but the worst part was when Kakeru found out his brother was dead. So sad :(

the manga wich was the most close to make me cry was Gintama.

Yes I know it's most about comedy but almost every serious arc has moments full of drama and I loved sougo's sister death.

Finally, another user who reads the amazing barefoot gen. It is an amazing and harrowing tale of survival in Japan amidst the bombing of Hiroshima-Nagasaki. What's even more heartbreaking is, like the legendary Hotaru no Haka this manga is based on the author's own experience as a WWII survivor. It brought me to tears many time. And believe it or not, it is serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, when it was still a diverse magazine. Too bad, today's reader only want action and dramedy. Heavy drama like this just doesn't have any place in today's manga magazines

Since we usually have the same tastes in manga and anime, Kaiten-kun, and if that anime made you cry then I definitely need to watch Tokyo Magnitude 8.0


Clannad the After Story and both seasons of ef as well.
I didn’t cry the first season of ef, but the second one…

Tokyo Magnitude was really good. The ending was absolutely devastating. I was shocked they actually went through with it. You'll love it Des - chan :)

That scene from ef left me in shock. It took a few minutes for my eyes to start watering I was so surprised. In the first season I found Chihiro's story so moving. It was a different type of sad, but still just as powerful. I've found that I like that type of anime; there's something nice and cleansing about a sad story.

mmm…the “absolutely devastating” part has scared me a bit, but I’ll watch anyway :) because if it is like Code Geass, where the ending was totally heartbreaking but the series as a whole was amazing, then Tokyo must be awesome too!http://www.laymark.com/i/m/m087.gif (http://www.laymark.com)



That scene from ef left me in shock. It took a few minutes for my eyes to start watering I was so surprised.
Actually, iirc we cried during different scenes, Kaiten-kun. You cried:

In the accident one. And even though I didn’t cry during that scene I was very close to do it because it was so painful. http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Sad/sad-049.gif

I cried:

When Yuu and Yuuko met at the church after all those years. http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Sad/sad-027.gif



In the first season I found Chihiro's story so moving.

It was moving indeed. Chihiro and Renji’s story was my favorite one from season one.

Manga/Anime moments that made me really Sad:

GANTZ:
The end of the emotional Buddha Arc, Katou's death and Kei waking up just to find that his best friends, his girlfriend, everyone has died.

ONE PIECE:
Like someone said before the Flashbacks on OP are brutally sad the one that got me the most was Frankies, since you coulnd't possibly not like Tom san.

AKIRA:
Yamagata's death in the anime version was offscreen but in the manga it is one of the climatic highlights.

LONE WOLF AND CUB:
The last chapters in the manga are the most emotional piece of literature I've ever read, you simply know that there can't possibly be a happy end but you hope til the very last, and the last panel turns the whole manga around.

but the Berserk manga is extremely awesome, and the Eclipse is only half of the story.
I know…but since I was a big Casca fan and a big Casca x Gutts fan…I just can’t bring myself to watch/read the eclipse part and I doubt I can just skip that part and continue reading the rest.

Yes, there should be a warning for fans in Wikipedia, like “if you haven’t read/watch all the chapters/episodes do not continue reading!!!”

I'm normally not that affected by manga/anime when it comes to sad stories, but here are three examples of series that got me quite emotional:

Outlaw Star episode 20:
I felt pretty sad for Jim when his date never showed up at the end. Little did he know that his crew killed her in the previous battle against the K-Pirates. I felt bad for the cats as well.

Aoi Bungaku, No Longer Human storyline:
This storyline was just overall depressing. I felt bad for Oba after so much shit happened to him.

Aoi Bungaku, Kokoro storyline:
This has got to be my favourite storyline in Aoi Bungaku. It's comprised of two episodes which detail the same events, but from the perspectives of two different characters. K's death in the first episode was just emotional, coupled with great music when Sensei read his suicide note: "This summer was beautiful."

Grave of the Fireflies:

In Rave Master, when they find out that the Skeleton guarding Resha's grave was actually Sieg.

Oh god I forgot about that. I'm gonna tear up just thinking about it again! Rave master was great towards the end.


One Piece, when the SH's held the viking funeral for the Going Merry!!! :crying and the emotional music :crying to go with the flashbacks! :crying

I can't speak for the anime, but the imagery I had going through my head when I read the manga was emotional. AND IT WAS JUST A SHIP MADE OF WOOD! ...and almost every flashback, particularly after East Blue. They just keep getting better. You're inhuman if you felt nothing for Brooke's flashback.

As for anime...well a lot of the deaths in Code Geass. Particularly Euphemia, and I didn't even like her.

Despite appearances I'm actually not a softy...don't judge me!

Here's one I haven't said in here before:

Okay, this is the first time this has happened, but today I cried whilst watching an anime! I've just finished crying after/while watching Tegami Bachi episode 17, mostly because it reminded me of several things (including a Futurama episode I can't watch all the way to the end, you know the one).

I guess its the best tear-jearker (Jump) manga for a reason.

Rainier
February 01, 2010, 05:06 PM
Mmm...this is going to sound ridiculous but, in the lastest chapter of HxH, I got teary eyes when Killua asked his antagonist to give Gon some peace of mind, because he clearly wasn't able to...and then he cried like...wow.

I guess it affects me because even though I'm 18, I've never had a friend that would worry about me as much as those two do for each other, and it's nice to see, even if it's in a manga, what I think a true friendship would be.

I haven't seen the anime series, but for Futurama, if I had to take an educated guess, it would be the one where:

Fry gets his dog back and in the end he had to let him go.

That one seems to be a tear-jerker for people. I never cried during the scene.

And for anime/manga/ok maybe just anime but oh well/ Toradora, the part during the snow trip, where taiga expresses his love for ryuji.

and also, Naruto, the part where jiraiya dies..

Bleach, the recent chapter when hinamori takes the stab, I feel for her, so much.

The ending of Angel Beats made me cry, parts in between too. I won't say anything about the climax, I'd have to spoil 2/3 of the series. The final scene, after the credits rolled was really beautiful, and vague enough that what it may have been less than it looked like. I fanboy over all Key Studio's related anime; Air, Kanon, and Clannad too. At first I didn't think Angel Beats was as good but I ended up loving it.

After reading Alma's and Kanda's flashback(D.Gray-Man) i had a nightmare and my little brother was like Alma in it.He was full of blood and body parts were missing.I had my brother in my arms and even though he was severly injured,he was smiling just like Alma always did.So i woke up crying and ended up hugging my little brother.

That flashback left quite an impression on me i guess.

I don't get emotional when reading watching anime. But for some reason, there were some scenes in particular mangas/anime that made me feel uneasy. No, to be honest, I should say I was about to cry sometimes.
Here are some examples:
- Berserk - This manga in particular had the biggest impact on me. There were some moments when I forcefully take a break from reading them because the events hurt alot :S ... Berserk gotta be the best manga I've ever read in my entire life. (the funny thing is that I haven't finished reading the latest volumes yet).
- Naruto (part1) - Sasuke's flashbacks before the valley of the end.
- One Piece - One piece never fails when it comes to a character's personal story... There were too many sad moments in One Piece flashbacks.
- Claymore - Teresa's story had some painful moments.
- FMA :


FMA made me cry a little when

the father turned his own daughter into a chimera. Just too cruel and sad at the same time :(

I get pretty emotional when I read manga/watch anime so I cry quite a lot @__@ Or come close to it.

The most recent in memory would probably be...

NarutoMinato and Kushina's sacrifice and eventual death, as well as Kushina's final moments with Naruto in his consciousness. I cried even reading the spoilers!
FMAThe last chapter (and episode for that matter)! When Al sacrificed himself to bring back Ed's arm, and then eventually when Ed managed to get Al back from the shinri no tobira. And just, because one of my favourite series for like 7 years just ended ><
BakumanDidn't expect to ever cry at this series but I actually did when Saikou asked for a printout of the TOC showing that PCP had hit #1, and went to show it to his uncle's grave.
One PieceAce's death!!! And also when all the strawhats got separated one by one. I've cried numerous times at One Piece in the past too. At Merry's "death", and the end of the Arabasta arc when the strawhats held up their arms with the X on it...
Code GeassWhen Lelouch had to lie to Nunnally (and only dropped the pretense and said "I love you" when she was under the geass, only to revert to his "cold" self when she regained her own consciousness), and then when he died and Nunnally finally found out the truth

Anime

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0,
a real tearjerker
when I watched the last episode I ended up moping around for hours (then I watched it six more times)

Ningen Shikkaku
It was utterly depressing..in a good sense

Loveless
I would tear up every time I started watching it...I dropped the anime after three episodes; I'm still reading the manga though.

07-Ghost
When I realized Mikage was actually dead and not coming back

Manga

D.Gray-man
I couldn't stop bawling while reading chapters from 190 to 198
even re-reading those chapters makes me....:crying

Boys next door
I was probably quite depressed when I read this, and it made me cry

Watashitachi no shiawase na jikan
heartbreakingly sad

Replica
I wasn't expecting it to end like that...and cried over it

Nabari no Ou
It had me teary quite a few times, and the last 5-6 chapters really made me cry

Intersexual
I didn't cry because it was sad



:D quite a long list

The twist towards the end of Tokyo Magnitude was heart breaking. I had thought the animators were jerking the audience around emotionally until the truth was revealed. One of the saddest moments in anime when it finally was.

The second arc of Mononoke was also very emotional, the OST went a long way in adding to atmosphere and the last scene is probably one of the best things I've ever seen in an anime

Grave of the Fireflies

One Piece
I cried or at least got teary-eyed many times while reading and watching One Piece. Parts that made me cry in the manga include Usopp vs. Luffy, Chopper's flashback, Robin's flashback, Usopp's speech at Enies Lobby ("it's not like it's hell here!"), the funeral of Going Merry, Brook's flashback and Bon-chan's sacrifice in Impel Down. Parts that made me cry once again when watching them in the anime were Robin's flashback and the death of Merry. I might be forgetting some, too.

Cowboy Bebop
Episode 5 "Ballad of Fallen Angels", episode 24 "Hard Luck Woman", episode 26 "The Real Folk Blues part II" and possibly some others. I'll just name the episodes because I think my eyes might have teared up more than once in each, and I don't want to spoil the best anime ever for people.

Solanin: I can't remember which chapter, but the side-story of an old man sending letters made me tear up. The ending was especially touching.

Sket Dance: I loved all the backstories between the Sket-dan, but Bossun's made me cry. It was bittersweet. The switch (no pun intended!) between the humor and drama makes the impact even greater.

Kaiten
September 13, 2010, 10:26 PM
The chapter where Meiko talked to the old man was such a moving scene and a great turning point in the series.

Taneda's death was one of the saddest scenes I've read. How he had died without fully realizing his dreams was devastating. Meiko's reaction, when she demolished the TV was, if anything, more heartbreaking. Inio is such a brilliant writer, Meiko's rage was a brilliant way of saying those who are left behind feel the most pain.

^Solanin spoilers are hidden. It's to good a manga to ruin.

September 16, 2010, 12:57 AM
It's been a few but the ones I remember right now are:

Bradherley no basha

This series is quite sad but chapter 6 was one of the saddest...
when the girl was actually begging to the guard to let her die and he wouldn't so he keep lying that as soon as she completed the 7 days or so she was going to be free even when he knew that wasn't true. In the end he wanted to keep his promise to her but he was the one who end up dying.

Nana

Ren's death and the fact that only his hands were the only thing that didn't end up destroyed.

D.Gray-Man

When Fou was carrying Edgard's body while she talked to him and put him besides his wife. That was a heartbreaking scene. è///é

When i watched anime of Naruto instead of the manga , 2 and half years ago, i remember to have cried about the all Zabusa and Haku deaths, it was very emotional!!!
More recently this happened right before i started following weekly the manga of Naruto , but Jiraiya death.
Kakashi "death" in the whole Pain invasion didnt make me cry , it made me only :o, wasnt expecting that

One Piece manga have some pretty good emotional moments, as Ace death , which was really emotional :crying and at the same time i wasnt expecting that
And also another moment, was the all Going Merry funeral , it was so damm emotional , and it was about a ship!!!!

Another that made me have some weird reaction that i remember was on Death Note , and it was "L" death. i think, although it didnt make me cry , i think that that moment was a masterpiece!!!!

I just cried last night when reading REAL.

I think the whole idea of disabilities is very real to me because I have a disabled brother, but I think it would take a heart of steel for someone to be able to read this manga and not at least be touched or inspired by how hard the characters work despite their disabilities, and at times their inability to come to terms with their disabilities, their regrets... As its name suggests, it's a very real manga.

I specifically cried when a young Takahashi writes a letter to his dad who has left the family, about how he is able to dribble through his legs now, and how he is waiting for his dad to come back home to see him. It's so sad that when his dad finally comes home, Takahashi is no longer able to show his father anything. It was heartbreaking when he asked his dad, "What am I supposed to show you now!?" :scry

I'm not sure where this post of mine belongs to but I think I'll put this here.

I've just finish reading Alive and it made me very close to crying at certain parts and near the end, it was sad to see it go because it is such an awesome piece of work and I almost cried because of the themes of the story and the characters that touched me.

Only after I finished reading it did I found out that the author died soon after finishing his work..and I felt terrible but also admire the author for spending his time, although it was hard because of his illness, to complete his work. Instead of wasting precious time he put the energy into his work to convey his message to his readers...
Not only that, he also started on a new manga after that..I guess that's what it means to be "Alive" by doing what he loves till the end and living through the end.

If anyone wants to take a look, the source is this. (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-06-17/alive-manga-writer-tadashi-kawashima-passes-away)

Animes:

Roy finding his daughter is still alive after the blastfall, but she's all grown up (as Rose) and doesn't like him, she starts to warm up to him, and then she gets blown up, and poor Roy takes it really hard losing his daughter twice, except she's not dead...

There's a lot of emotional scenes in this anime, it's awesome, the interactions between Roy and Solty Rei are really "watery too" and great, hehe

Blue getting killed by Darcia

Toboe crawling to Blue's human old guy, whatever his name

and many more "Watery moments" as well

Cal Devons (Drei) and her misfortunate tragedy. Cal is extremely grown up for her age, as a "genius", anyways, so Zwei promises to return and Cal promises to wait for him. When, Zwei is returning to his apartment it is blown up. Zwei thinks Cal is dead, but she had left the apartment, so he never returns, while Cal goes to the destroyed apartment and wait for Zwei to return, praying he wasn't blown up, and waits and waits for Zwei who never returns to her, leaving her traumatized, and ultimately Zwei has to kill her later after they reunite, after Zwei finds out she's still alive.

Also, between Zwei and Ein are some really "Watery moments" too

lots of "watery scenes" in this one, which I probably don't need to name all of them, hehe

I choked up with Rock Lee when he was trying to rehabilitate himself after Gaaru crushed his arm and leg

there's other "Watery moments" as well, such as with Hinata and her love for Naruto

Poor Tiz... so sad, she loves Thor, but he falls in love with Karim, who gets killed, and than Tiz gets killed as well, sacrficing her body to save Zagi for Thor

lots of "watery moments" in this as well, but when Saya was uber depressed and Haji grabs her and hugs her, she pushes herself away, Haji grabs her again, and she bawls and sobs into his chest

lots of "watery moments" in this one as well. the big one for me, is the little girl getting fused with her dog

Motoko's childhood past with Kuze and her struggle with her fully prosthetic body

Rurouni Kenshin Seisoushen

At parts the OVA was too melodramatic. Nonetheless the ending was still saddening on a personal level. I read that Watsuki believed Kenshin’s tale deserved a happy conclusion after all the shit he’s gone through, which makes this even more of a tear jerker. Kenshin’s character is truly humanised not via declarations of pacifist ideals during epic duels, but his intimate final moments with loved ones, and their acts of selflessness for him.

The bolded part was what made me dislike Seisouhen. The makers of Seisouhen screwed around with Kenshin in here, made it too melodramatic (like you said)... I thought it was poorly done and they should have gotten approval from the original creator (Watsuki) :/ Seisouhen didn't make me cry, it made me kinda angry instead :p On the contrary, Tsuiokuhen was touching and made me cry because of how emotional all of it was.

Haha to each his/her own I guess. Seisouhen was actually the first piece of RK media I came in contact with, so I didn't have any idea initially of how the characters were originally portrayed. While watching I was kinda 'in the zone', so to speak, and the downer ending got to me. IRRC I watched Tsuiokuhen after Seisouhen and considered it to be the superior work, though I was more enthralled with the epic historical conflict.

Everytime I think about toradora it makes me sad and if I think too deeply into it or listen to the opening and ending song, it makes me want to cry.
I really enjoyed toradora! for its characters and story.
But there is another reason, it reminds me of a very close friend that I was in love with.
That girl always talk about toradora with me and I thought she was the girl closest to me in my life and then her personality is also similar to Taiga in toradora!..so is her appearance
However 2 years have passed since then and we don't talk to each other anymore(actually we don't really talk irl anyway, most of it is online but still we were in the same class) and she has a boyfriend. I only found out that I liked her after she was gone tho.

Kindda seems off topic, but an anime doesn't really need to have an over the top dramatic storyline or really tear breaking plot to make a person cry.
For me toradora reminds me of a bittersweet memory in my life that I shared with this particular person.

I'm being corny.

There's some anime and manga that makes me cry, but most of the times, I was got sensitive when abducting, insult scenes between two good-sided characters (especially during insulting interactions between the main protagonist and another main protagonist) and scenes involving babies in saddened moments comes :

Rurouni Kenshin
1 : Jinne kidnaps Kaoru while Kenshin saves her.
2 : Megumi gets abducted by Oniwabanshu. For some reasons, she will commits seppuku before she gets stopped by Sanosuke.

Qwaser of Stigmata
In the first anime season, Mafuyu gets abducted by Tanner brothers, while Sasha comes her to the rescue. I love anime scenes involving boys saving damsels in distress !

Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere
P-01s gets abducted by Seiren. In the last two episodes, Tori finally comes to talk and kiss her !

C3
In the latest episodes, Fear ignores for what Haruaki says before he got abducted (alongside Kirika and Kuroe) by Alice. Fear, Kirika and Konoha come to save him and Kuroe.


Puella Magi Madoka Magica
When watching the final episode for the first time, Madoka disappears while announcing her last words on Homura.

Dragon Crisis!
There's some episodes when Rose shows her tsun side to Ryuji and insults him.


Deadman Wonderland
Ganta insults Shiro and the latter runs off. They finally retrieve and excuse themselves before they make an almost-kiss.

Inu Yasha
In the first anime series, Kagome insults Inu Yasha before being self-abducted by Koga. They finally retrieve but Inu Yasha didn't care what Kagome is saying.

FMA (Non-B): with that alchemist who thought the girl he loved died, when she didn't, and she returned to him in later years, and grew old with him, and he never saw her for who she was.

Phantom: Requiem of the Phantom. Cal+Zwei, and her tragedy. Basically all that involves Cal, especially her conversations with Zwei.

Solty Rei. enough said. such an emotional anime series!

The Sacred Blacksmith. Lisa and Luke stuff. Especially Cecily's happy-teary-eyed-making dramatic scene about Luke+Lisa, and the episode where they go shopping, how Lisa talks about jsut enjoying being with Luke and with Luke finally buying her a tiny hat (lol).

Naruto: Jariya's death, but a for "weird" reason (lol)... he never got to... "enjoy" ..."Legendary Chested & Bodied" Tsunade !!!

Naruto: many other scenes, like Hinata nearly dying to Pain, and etc etc etc etc... the Rock Lee being told he'd never be able to recover after Gaara destroyed his leg and arm in the chuunin exams - only to still stubbornly perservere anyways hehe, and again etc etc etc..

It's pretty hard to make me cry in general. Death scenes pretty much never manage it. When something gets to me it's usually because of some powerful emotional revelation that either takes me by complete surprise or just cuts a lot deeper than I expected it too.

Some moments that have made my throat a little dry but didn't quite manage tears were...

Claymore
The moment where Teresa realizes that young Clare was looking to comfort her, instead of looking to her for comfort.

That was such a wonderfully powerful revelation for her and seeing such a stone-faced character break down and cry just added to it's impact.

One Piece
The Ennis Lobby arc when Luffy orders Ussop to set fire to the world Government flag as Robin looks on in chains.

That scene was just so well delivered.

Bleach
The whole scene where Orihime stands over a sleeping Ichigo and listing all the different things she would do if she could live more than one life but that the one things she would want to do in EVERY life is fall in love with him.

That choked me up pretty good. Especially because that one blindsided me 100%. I mean, I guess knew Orihime liked Ichigo but I had no idea she was in love with him.

The only one that really got to me enough to generate actual tears was.....

Eureka Seven
In an episode near the end in the scene where during a fight with "The End" everyone hears Anemone's thoughts and regrets about Dominic.

There was this whole "she loved him but didn't realize it until it was too late" thing that was so heartbreaking and then it switched gears to triumphant so fast that it was too much for me.

The last two animes that made me (nearly) cry are Sket Dance and AnoHana.

The Switch Off Arc in Sket Dance was so shocking and sad that I nearly cried and made me completely fall in love with the anime/manga. The serious moments in Sket Dance are very strong, even so that I could expect a good serious story from the mangaka after Sket Dance is finished.

Anohana's last episode made me cry, really cry. It was damn touching and it really moved my heart. It was one of the very rare cases where anime made me cry a lot. I can only recommend this great and sad show.

When reading the manga, the entire Asia's rescue arc made me teared up, especially her near-death (before being ressurected by Rias) and Issei's words towards Reynalle, his childhood friend. I also remember that I cried Asia's past (accompanied by a sorrowful lullaby along the lines of a traditionnal musicbox) in the anime (though I haven't cried Asia's past in the manga but it made me moved to sadness).

Well there were plenty actually :)
In Naruto when Jiraya died and also when Minato and Kushina gave their life in order to save Naruto http://www.emoticonsfree.org/wp-content/uploads/yolks-messengers/TT-TT.gif (http://www.emoticonsfree.org/yolks-for-messengers.html). Those made me cry really hard , i couldn't stop for several minutes :(

Also in One Piece when the SH's said goodbye to Merry , that was also a moment that made me cry . It was too touching , couldn't help it

The Breaker also made me cry when 9AD decided to destroy Shioon's Ki center . LOL i'm really easily touched by unexpected events :amuse

The Fairy Tail Anime. Several times.

The situations weren't even sad, it's the music plus the situation of the characters that get me. It also happens to my mate, so the animation/production team are doing a something right.

I can't think of any others.

I'm in a dog phase right now and was looking for some manga about dogs. Unfortunately I ended up reading these two that were good but sad:

Deep Love - Pao no Monogatari (It contains animal cruelty so be warned.)
Eien no With

They both present the strong bond a dog can have with a human.

The last manga I was very close to crying was Bokurano. The children's story and fate all get to you in a special way and you can't help but feel with them. Probably the most depressing manga I've read thus far.

Strangely enough, I did not feel like crying at all. It was so depressing and hopeless, crying wouldn't have helped me deal with it better. In a way you could say that was even worse. There is happy>neutral>crying>depressed(bokurano).
At least that's how I felt.

I agree, I didn't cry either but it was so depressing sometimes that I felt like crying would actually make me feel better. You know, like crying it out to calm down. Hope you get what I mean :s

I had tears running down my face during the anime version of Kidd's (Kid's?) book burning scene in the anime adaption of Konjiki no Gash bell. I've never cried during an anime and or manga, but the music, the voice acting, and...goddamit everything was perfect for that scene. The manga had me sad, but the anime had me wiping my tears in embarassment and just the sheer sadness of it all. It didn't help that Nazo-nazo Hakase was like 'I know. You don't need to say anything.' Toei's always been hit or miss animation wise with me, but they ALWAYS get the best VA's and music. Even One piece had me sniffiling at some points.

Mangawise, I didn't cry but I did really feel bad for Luchiru in Anagle Mole about chapter...12. When he's all like Dammit, It would have been better if I were born a human.. (http://www.batoto.net/read/_/79415/anagle-mole_ch12_by_pinoymanga-scans/10). His tears and expression got to me. Amongst his own people he's seen as a reject, and the humans he's supposed to help destroy take him in and give him love and care. The whole series is simplistic, but my heart went out to him during that scene....I hope to re-translate it so the proper sentiment is expressed soon.

well the very first anime that made me cry was (and hardest if i may say so myself) "Grave of the Fireflies". I watched it 15 years after it was made and i have never been in a situation that resembles Seita and his sister nor do i know any1.... but for some reason it just made me cry rivers everytime that little girl started to slurp stones. till that time i didnt even know i could even cry from a movie/anime/manga etc.

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (Korean Drama)

The goodbye scene between Dae Wood and Miho made me cry. http://www.laymark.com/l/m/m033.gif (http://www.laymark.com)It was such a moving scene; the girl he loved was dying and he could do nothing about it, she had decided to sacrifice her life for his sake. The love of DW and Miho was so palpable during that scene, I was so touched by that scene, I was so moved by their acting that I couldn’t help but cry during that scene.

Crayon Shin-chan is one of the manga with so many tear jerking arcs, especially in the later volumes. I was really sad to found out that the Mangaka of Shin-chan died from an accident :(. Too bad it's not really popular in the scanlation community though, and I'd recommend it for those who seek random humors and a drawing style which is need some time to get used to.

My eyes were wet when I finished watching 5 Centimeters per Second, not because it's a sad story per se, but how it is beautifully executed. The story is something I can relate to myself as well, and probably that's the reason why I was being sentimental when I finished watching it.

Wait, I forgot about Grave of the Fireflies. I remember now that I watched it as a child, and yes, I remember it was very touching.

Spirited Away

The ending was a bit of a: "wait, what?!" than really sad. But in retrospect I tend to realize just exactly how the whole world in the anime functioned left a sore feeling in my soul.

Aside from the very shadowy love story, I really thought about how the rest of it all fits in, For example the underlying Marxist way in which the workers were presented, the idealization of the working class that worked for Yubaba left me wanting to know more about them as well. Also Chihiro's parents and their whole moving to another place thing. Really a common thing in today's world, migration. These kind of themes left me wondering and sad simply because they are kind of unsolvable in their core in the real world as well.

It's just an overall sad story but with a seemingly happy ending, even though most of the side stories have sad endings, at least part of the main story ended a bit happily with the reunion. Still the anime is a punch in the gut.

Let's see...

Right now I can't remember any other manga that made me cry but Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. Moment of apologize is usually sweet and important, but when someone says thanks instead even though he has suffered and done lots of bad things... I was just sad because this character always has a rough time and it feels like he isn't really happy throughout the entire series. I was crying just like that. XD A webtoon manhwa Can't See Can't Hear But Love made me almost cry few times because how touching it could be sometimes with its lesson about life.

For anime, well, there are some. Angel Beats! (that ending, lolwut), Kimi ni Todoke (this one I cried a lot, I don't know why, I just cared about Sawako so much that it made me sad when she was sad), Code Geass (deaths of season 2 were just..). I can't remember the rest. Mostly are related to deaths, but with Sawako of Kimi ni Todoke, even happy moments when she was able to open up herself could make me almost cry of happiness. XD

Now as for drama, there's quite a lot. The latest, I cried hard twice for Reply 1997 (in hospital and at episode 15; hardest was at episode 15, more than that will be spoiler, lol). The series itself is great and touching, but at those specific moments I was just touched. Those moments were sweet, real, and proves of love from your family is just neverending. Next is The King 2 Hearts. For those who watch the series, perhaps I don't need to say which scene made me cry because it's rather obvious, lol, but the clue is episode 19. Let's just say that I had to witness a heroic death of a character I didn't expect at all. Heck, I thought he would live happily for all he had been through. But they just had to do that to him. The movie Hello Ghost made me cry too at the ending, it was just very sad and sweet. Again, family related.

I feel like there's a lot of titles I forget so I'll update again when I remember. :p

There are so many so many manga/anime/Asian drama that made me cry...
I always cry when I see a scene of someone heartbroken.. I guess it's because I can relate...
I'll list some that made me cry hard...
Hakuouki is one that made me cry for a week. I think I was really saddened that the main characters died one by one, and Hijikata's death is just so heartbreaking... For a week, that scene stayed on my mind and every time I remembered it, I just cried.
Honey and Clover too... I even ended up crying while laughing since every time there was a particularly heartbreaking scene, it was followed by a silly scene. I usually cried when Yamada was thinking about Mayama because I can relate to her the most...
Natsume Yuujinchou also made me cry a lot in some of its episodes... Mostly on the episodes about the love between human and youkai, and Natsume's childhood... Those scenes are so heartbreaking... :scry
Fairy Tail is the winner though... I cried so hard at the scene after Jellal was taken and Erza was crying... :crying It was just too much. Even until now, I still feel like crying every time they are meeting or thinking of each other. It's not helping that the relationship between them is still unresolved. It really makes me frustrated.
As for manga, the only one I can remember now is Hana to Akuma. The end is so bittersweet I couldn't help but to cry.

Naruto made me cry a few times. And usually i cried when i read the scenes and i cried again when i watched the animated scene.

+ Asuma's death
+ When Naruto met his father for the first time.
+ When Naruto's parents died and his mother's goodbye

Bleach made me cry too.

+ Ulquiorra's death was very touching with Orihime's sadness.
+ Byakuya's almost death was heartbreaking to me.

ZE made me cry for the first time while reading a Boys Love manga.
The scene when Asari cries and "dies" cause "dolls" disappear when they cry. It was after a love confession. So tragic. :crying

I didn't think Clannad or Kokoro were forced at all. I support the conventional wisdom with Clannad, one of the best anime I have ever seen. I genuinely cared about Nagisa and Tomoya, truly a moving anime. Kokoro did not exactly make me choke up, but the friendship between Inaba, Iori, and Taishi felt natural, real, and well executed. Inaba, in particular, was a fantastic character. I never finished ToraDora (someday I will), so I won't comment on it.

Gaara's flashbacks..I hate betrayal and I can't ever imagine being treated like that..
and when obito supposedly died..Loosing a friend or someone so young is tragic and I been there..
Lastly,this anime is sad all around..elfen lied.

Really? I laughed my ass off about the forced drama

well i guess if i went into the show with a cynical point of view trying to pick out non-existent flaws i could have experienced a similar reaction

but because i allowed myself to actually get caught up in the characters and the plot, as if i was reading a book or something, i let my guard down a little bit

i believe the latter is a better way to not only experience anime, but to experience life

lets say, i went to watch an anime series that was a comedy, and i went into the series trying to pick apart every little joke to prove how non-funny they were

that doesnt sound very enjoyable

if the series isnt funny, just dont watch it,

if it is funny , dont go into the series with some pessimistic attitude trying to prove you are "tough" or have some "high tolerance" by not laughing at the jokes

but to come on here and make fun of my experience because you are a cynical person means nothing to me, in fact it kind of feels like you are trying to discourage me from posting

just kidding now this is what i consider forced drama, i do think anohana was a bit over the top
but i totally allowed myself to fall in love with the characters, so when the last episode happened i got caught up in it

however i do respectfully understand why this type of show wouldnt be for everyone

Gu Family Book – Episode 24

I cried so much during the last episode of “Gu Family Book”. http://emoticoner.com/files/emoticons/crazy-monkey/crazy-monkey-emoticon-165.gif While part of me was always worried because of the monk’s prophesy and the possibility that one of them might die, the other part of me was hopeful I expected for KC and YW to have their very much well-deserved happy ending. Sadly, KC and YW didn’t have their happy ending. http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Sad/sad-021.gifYW’s death made me cry so much. The scenes with her father, with her friends back at the academy and the scenes with KC really broke my heart.

I cried my heart out during this episode. It was so sad!! I loved YW as a character, she was great! She was an amazing female character and one of my favorite characters from all the dramaverse so her death was even more painful because I liked her as a character and because I really wanted her to have her happy ending together with KC.

The scene that made me cry the most was the scene at the river. That good-bye scene was so beautiful; it was so full of love and sadness at the same time. Even now I feel very sad when I think about how things ended. :(

Grave of the Fireflies.
That movie was SO sad. I heard from people the movie made them cry, but I thought it was a normal movie with a sad ending or something. Yeah no, the WHOLE movie was just sad. I could've cried at several points throughout the movie, but I controlled myself bravely, as I was watching the movie with my girlfriend....though at the end, I couldn't take it anymore. And we both cried. Oh boy.

Oddly enough, I'm finding Re: Hamatora really good this season. Even if it did a complete 180 in terms of genre (action/comedy to action/thriller), there is something really satisfying about watching it.

One scene that made me cry was in episode 4, where Honey is trapped in a van with her father. She's a psychic, but has despised her dad for only thinking of the benefits he could reap from her powers. She ran away from home years ago but fate has brought them together in the form of kidnapping.

What I loved about this whole scene is that her dad has basically given up, but Honey doesn't despite being physically weak. Through sheer will she manages to break apart her ties and use her powers to send a signal for people to find them. She did the right thing -- even if they die, at least the culprits can be caught and her body would have been found. I think the ability to think beyond your own immediate demise is really badass. The whole scene was emotional and I ended up teary eyed.
