Well i think i start this thread with THANKS TO EUREKA SEVEN.
This is a Anime thats saved my anime watching "LIFE".
Im just not the guy which goes to the internet and say "whuaaaa this bad" or "i dont like thiss..." or any other open my heart issues.
(Just like MH's Tobito prob; whichs means that way, that certain persons here, have a certain prob^^)
BUT this one REALLY bothers me.
Every Anime that im watching is going to be depressed or melodramaly.
Hmmm starts with...
Eureka 7 : has it selfs depressing moments ( exspecialy for renton ) ; but the end was nice (i dont mean the big "gay" heart^^)
Samurai Champlooo: (without the funny episodes) thats a real depressing anime; blood hate lonlyness etc; has a good end, but they go all alone.
Ergo Proxy : long Depressing times in the story and the end is so lala good.
and damn complicated (not for kids for RE-L )
Full MEtal ALchimist : lets say its kind of depresing at that start in the middle and exspecialy at the end.(like what they "done" to Rose)
AND THE WINNER IS COWBOY BEBOP
that story is like samurai champloo(in meaning of depressing )
BUT the end hits the jackpot NEVER seen more depressing episodes like the last 3 in CB.
So i will end to list the animes that makes me kind of depressed, because i get depressed by writting this post .
Im already 20 and i know the life is not didelido or pink like a bonbon.
But this animes ....
Im watching Naruto its not at the end but it ahs also some depressing parts.
Hmmm that was my opinion of animes or have i bad luck a picking anime's?
Post ur opinions and ur list of depressing anime^^
PS. (Eureka 7) If i were Renton i cominted suicide in the7 episodes , what are they making with him?????
PSS sorry for tha bad englisch^^

I have seen many depressing animes but off of the top of my head, hear are a few in no particular order.
Neon Genesis Evangelion
These basically cover the various forms of depressing if you ask me.
haha at the end of the evangelion movie, i love the series so much and to end at that completely ambiguous ending was very very very depressing
Moving this thread from GD to Otaku Theater.
depressing anime? in random order:
- Jigoku Shoujo
- Serial Experiment Lain
- Evangelion... the later part of the series sigh..studio Gainax
- Saishu Heiki Kanojo (Saikano)...
- Hotaru no Haka (Grave of fireflies) <- about a lil orphan boy an his lil sister trying to live in a war (WWII i guess).. ;_;.. watch it, and if you can laugh it off... you're not a human
- Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji...(Kaijiiiiiiiii!!!! T_T)
- Gunbuster Gainax again
- Mahoromatic (Mahorooooooooo!!!! T_T)why Gainax? WHY???
though none of the anime i mentioned (except Hotaru no haka, and maybe Saikano) is all about depressing story...

how could I forget jigoku shoujo?????
and serial experiments... it was one of my first animes you know.
yeah I just had to repost these to confirm they go to really low points of depressing. especially jigoku shoujo futakomori (the second season)
Le Portrait de Petite Cosette
Samurai X: Reflection
All of these series have multiple reasons for being depressing to me, but those who have watched them should understand why.
Grave of fireflies is the most depressing anime EVER, definately. Made me cry several times. ;~
The second Rurouni Kenshin was also very sad.
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. Never could watch it until the end, as after five episodes I wanted to jump through the window >.>;
Clannad the movie, very very very sad.
Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen
well i you guys like name all the anime i watch already.. though i quite agree that cowboy bebop is really depressing .. i love the musics....
since i like running out anime title so here are some of non-anime titles
-ravages of Time
Saikano was so depressing i cried at the end x.x and then was sick for 3 or 4 days afterwards beacuse it was that messed up :x
This didn't make me cry, but X/TV was really really dark and sad, even worse than its manga counterpart. And of course, Evangelion, classic example of a sad anime.
This is a top three listed in descending order.
3) Rurouni Kenshin OVA's What a downer those were. Happiness is rare and fleeting in that anime.
2) Evangelion As if the depressing scenes all the way through it weren't enough, that ending was depressing for a whole other set of reasons.
1) Basilisk Every episode was more depressing than the one before it. So by the end of the series I didn't even remember what smiling felt like.
