What's the last anime that made you cry?
Pic related for me
This fucking thing had me bawling my eyes out.
I cry at just about anything if it's beautiful. Sadness just gives me a lump in my stomach.
First and only.
I lost my shit at this scene.
God damn it moot, that's not the picture I posted.
What the fuck is that anyway, beet juice?
>I cry at just about anything if it's beautiful
This. I recall almost crying during 2001, and Evangelion
I was wondering wtf that had to do with anything. H-how does that even happen?
I was rewatching Soul Eater and when Crona said to Maka, "You're the first person I could call my friend." when Crona thought that he was about to die. Very sad.
I never cry to anything, completely dry through grave of the fireflies.
I think the last one was Barefoot Gen, you can probably guess the scene.
That was just horrifying more than anything.
It really hti me later when I though, waht if, one day, you wake up and have just a regualr day until, suddenly, in an instant, everyone and everyTHING you've ever known in your life is obliterated. Fucking shit man.
I've never cried, and I'm not saying that to sound tough. But the closest I ever got, and I got really close, was Kurosawa. Or maybe pic. Kaiji spoilers
Nausicaä of the valley of the wind made my eyes moist.
I've heard Clannad makes people cry but I found it too boring to watch.
I cried to his death last night while watching Rainbow.
Made me think along the same lines, where I live is frequently listed on the top of the "to nuke" sites in the US so it hit close to home.
I live in Canada
So I'm safe
I have no idea what the reputation for this is here.
but fucking attack on titan/shingeki no kyojin
I've seen a lot of animu but this was the first to actually make me cry. it was fucking at episode 22 or 23 with the fucking repeat of what happened at the start of it (kids watching, people asking about their loved ones, etc.). And then also seeing all the fucking characters that were supposedly invincible in the intro after they just died.
not even spoilers cause I could be talking about anyone.
Now that I think of it, that does sound terrifying. I was sad because of the fact he lost part of his family. I can't imagine being left alone like that.
Haha faggot. No remorse here. Goddamn nips deserved it.
I don't even know why that was so sad when it was obviously coming from a mile away
Today at the ending gj-bu
I didn't bawl, but I teared up for a second.
At least there's a second season coming up.
This post is so fucking shitty that it looks copied from MAL.
Don't move next to bases and you're good
This thread is shit.
>I've seen a lot of animu
A whole 20? Not even counting the movies?
Yeah it takes on a whole different dimension when you look at it that way.
Well, I live almost in the middle of the capital. So realistically it's game over for me. I guess I can take solace in the fact that I probably won't survive
But seriously, one of the reasons it hit me so deep was because I (personal blog inbound)
Watched my mom die of cancer. I repressed the sadness and this movie just made it come rushing out. Felt good.
The Little Busters scene where Kengo, Kyousuke, and Masato are playing baseball one last time, and saying their goodbyes to Rin/Riki was pretty heartbreaking.
but i'm serious anon.
I thought it was a good show at least when it came with making emotions feel real. people were obliterated like it was nothing but they still spent a good amount of times on the death after/sometimes during.
I can get how it wouldn't be liked. It's semi repetitive and goes by a bit to quick for what they are covering. And some might not like the art style.
But I was okay with all this because I liked the content it was covering.
I hope you're not talking about the OVA.
No.... there is a second season comfirmed correct? OVA is just this spring isn't it?
It's not only that scene that made me choke up. The episode with the old couple is the one that also got to me.
Sometimes I really wish I could cry at that kinda stuff, but the most I get is a little sniffle and slightly blurry vision.
Tatami Galaxy I think.
It just hit too close to home.
I'm going to sound like a bitch but this episode of Aria.
I love him so much and it hurt my heart when he felt unwanted or failed over and over again.
I-I just wanted to hold him tight and tell him everything would be okay...
Cried multiple times when watching Sakurasou recently... that show really hits me in the feels
But I tend to cry pretty easily.
>really hits me in the feels
Watching people butcher this whole feels thing is really starting to bother me
I'm not actually sure, a lot was probably an understatement. It might be around there though, I wanna say 15.
What I mainly wanted to say was i've seen some shit that was really bad (elfen lied and that fucking one about the economy [C] or whatever) and some shit that was really good in my opinion at least (Serial experiments lain).
And I felt that it was an above average show that I really felt for.
Watching people care about stupid shit like this is really starting to bother me
That's nice anon
>hit me in the feels
Deal with it
I feel like that would be a happy cry, great movie.
>admitting you've only seen 15 anime
I'm not anywhere near the recommended number, and you'd never catch me saying exactly how many I've watched.
I'm not aware of any second season announcements. The only thing I can find about a second season after the "continuation" was clarified to be an OVA is some brief, unsourced mention on Seventhstyle.
Maybe you're right, that's the same article I read, but I do hope you're wrong.
Anime? Can't remember. Last time in general was last night with "...Different Destinations".
>oh look, they got sent back in time and now they have to fix everything, can't wait for it to all work out.
>first attempt results in massive casualties
>second attempt results in nuclear holocaust
>third attempt results in planetary annihilation
>they're able to fix the timeline but the people they were trying to save were massacred in the new timeline
Well I don't visit /a/ very often and I was really only here to check something out and then saw this thread and it got me interested, I kinda threw that out there cause I noticed it was something no one ever posts about here and seeing as how it's still popular I figured there must be something up with it.
but it was true either way. I wasn't going to watch it but was pushed by friends and shit and ended up liking it.
I fainted during the Operation Sunset episode in GitS
watched it last christmas while making the turkey. Great movie.
Umm..This might sound newfriend as all hell, but what is the "recommended number?" I've watched around...200. Is this acceptable?
episodes or shows?
200 is actually the recommended number yes.
To this day, I have no idea how this is possible while leading a life that includes a job and/or school as well as other hobbies.
But yes that is the most commonly given number.
I've only watched 153 anime series
Series, including some movies and such.
You're fine, I've probably watched maybe 40-50 series now, and I shitpost here all the time.
See, to me that's still a fuck ton.
I guess I distill what anime I watch by lurking HARD. So I kind of cherry pick which leads me to watching far fewer than most
I'd say 153 is perfectly acceptable though. 200 is the most common figure but there's definitely lots of leeway there, especially if you've seen the "right" anime
That's kind of crazy. I have watched considerably more than all of my friends and that is just recommended.
I know, I'm pathetic.
That's fine anon, I didn't cry but it made me feel sad.
>dat fucking ost
Sochie didn't deserve that end.
Hell no, this is most definitely cry worthy.
Don't take it too seriously. If you watch the right stuff and don't post out of your ass, you're fine.
Example: If you want to join in an EVA thread, you don't really need to have seen 200 fucking anime just to contribute to that particular thread.
I watched this when I was like 6. Had no idea what the hell was going on so I hid inside a pile of laundry and cried.
higashi no eden
Though I almost teared up at the ending with the Count's letter to Albert's mother.
Th-thanks Anon. I wanted him to learn to love again.
Of course, I don't believe that quantity can ever outmatch quality. I've watched a lot of the "classics." the one thing with me is that I rarely watch current stuff. I wait for series to finish so I can marathon them.
Sadly at 250 seen, I've seen more than 80% of /a/
0080 man. You really hoped he was going to win the fight but the moment the bullet pierced through his cockpit, we knew it was going to end badly.
>more than 80% of /a/
Be honest, of all those animes, what percentage of them were actually 8-10/10?
I'm the same way
all of them man
but the credits stuck out quite a bit I though
Obligatory as well.
I still love anime as a medium, and a 7/10 is still real good for me.
I was just about to post this.
>Be honest, of all those animes, what percentage of them were actually 8-10/10?
I've seen about 200 as well, and the more I saw the more I went back and revised ratings with my newfound knowledge. At last I just stopped rating and never looked back, what a waste of time.
I've never seen this one personally, but I use it to break haughty people who think they're too tough to cry from anime.
My friend who didn't even flinch at Clannad or AS watched this and didn't leave his room for a week from the ensuing depression.
Another girl I knew claimed that she wanted to understand the heart of Madoka. I told her that her manic depression made it a bad idea. When she protested, I siked this on her.
She seemed alright, until the next day when she admitted to having cried all night.
The last thing she said to me was "Setsuko, my poor sweet baby."
I haven't heard from her since, but she created a new facebook a while back so I know she at least didn't die from it.
That fits a pretty nice distribution curb I bet.
yeah 7/10 is great, I'm just very picky so I only put time into things I know I'll really like
I mean, I know I'm going to come across as normalfag, but I have a full-time job, university, a gf, and I'm recently really into games, which is a time-intensive hobby. Not to mention I have shit attention span.
I really do try my best to expand my horizons though, so I think that's something at least.
that's probably the best way to approach it at that point
This fucking episode.
It felt so out of place and morbid in comparison to the rest of the show, I don't know what to feel anymore.
Wow, as much as I love Eve, I never listened to the Op/Ed. I am kicking myself now. Thank you /a/non!
Millennium Actress anyone?
>The last thing she said to me was "Setsuko, my poor sweet baby."
I thought that story was going to end very, very badly.
The answer is always the dies of cancer episode of Doremi.
Thought the realization of Doremis death in the final episode of Naisho almost got me.
I haven't even seen or heard of this that picture is enough to make me feel sad.
I think the ending of Angel Beats was the last thing I personally cried from.
The most crying I ever did in an anime was probably Clannad and AS. Anything worse I refuse to finish so as to avoid scarring myself.
And no, it's not the moments you're probably thinking of. The one that gets me without fail is:
I nearly wrecked my papercraft just now from crying while watching it.
I need a minute.
This whole entire goddamn episode. I cried for hours.
>implying youve actually seen that much anime
I watched it and I have to say
the most retarded, overrated shit I've ever seen.
Fuck you bozos who cried on this kiddy drama shit. Fuck
Actually it was exactly the moment I was thinking of, minus that gay youtube intro.
Doremi is kinda of cheating. You spend 200+ episodes with these characters, so when they decide to go for depression it always hits harder then say, Anohana or Grave.
But no really fuck the dies of cancer episode of Doremi.
Why would I lie about that? It isn't even a lot, I still feel like I have loads of holes to fill and my backlog is a mountain.
If you just watch season by season for a year it's about 20-40 shows right there, you'll rack up 100+ in no time.
I passed the 200 mark at the end of last season after getting back into anime a year and a half ago. I'm going to try and slow it down this year though. I need to get serious about my career plans now.
The last anime I cried at was the latest episode of Chuuni, when Deko burst into tears and hugged Shinka, who was also tearing up. I blame being extremely drunk though.
The last time I legit bawled my eyes out was pic related. I had to retake the screencap just now and I teared up the moment I heard her voice.
Oh man, if that tore you up then you should really check out the VN.
Refrain hit me like a fucking freight train the entire way through. Rin's whole arc is written to be completely misleading about everyone's intentions and then it all comes to light in Refrain and slaps you in the face in the best possible way.
It's a shame you saw the vastly inferior anime first.
>that first spoiler
Fuck I needed a good laugh
MD Geist Death Force
When the robots attacked the ship and killed everyone and Geist went down in the burning wreckage with the other MDS impaled on a stake I cried bitch tears. Such a beautiful story.
I was worried about her too, but she had mentioned that she was suffering from a lot of spam and that she needed to get rid of her account prior to that.
Funny thing is, I talked her out of killing herself at least twice and she had originally met me as a stranger.
She was a fan of one of my works on dA who insisted on Facebooking me. I helped her from across the country and having never seen my face to become a wiser more well adjusted person.
I actually like Death Force, but not that much. If you weren't being ironic that is.
I know. That intro would have ruined it...except you could make a rock cry with that scene.
I played the VN halfway and never got back to finishing it, but I probably will soon.
I borrowed one of Gurren Lagann's drills for good luck!
Not ironic at all. Geist was such a trooper. Most misunderstood character of all time. So brutally honest and innocent, he was made to kill, he spent all his life killing, and then everyone acts all indignified when finds something new to kill? The nigger's just trying to have a good time get off his back.
It kinda gets me all the time.
When Nia disappears ;_;
Can't really blame you. To be honest, the character routes were really hit or miss for me, and some of the SoL stuff just seemed to drag the fuck on.
However, Rin's second route and especially Refrain was what really pushed it into 9/10 territory for me and justified all the time I'd spent on it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Exactly, Geist was a force of nature, a pure killing machine. He was never hero, nor a villain, just a neutral force of absolute destruction. I think he released the Death Force in the first place just because their nature was similar to his, and of course, because he wanted something new to annihilate.
What? It isn't that rare, the fuck?
Is it okay to not hold it in anymore, Papa?
>tfw you can't rewatch clannad because of the feels
Same, but stop with the greentext bullshit and crying niggers.
Also, if you wanted to relieve those emotions you could play the VN.
I mainly wanted to get through Kurugaya, Rin, and Kuds routes but a lot of it drags on, and I never know if I'm choosing the right decisions without a walkthrough. I've been meaning to get through it soon but I when I play VN's I tend to play for a few to see if it holds my interest or not. I have too many where I only played 1/4 or 1/2 of the way, and a few where I actually finished it.
I have a ton on my backlog to play but I don't know which ones to start playing that are worth the effort.
I know the feeling. I tend to finish everything nowadays, but back when I first started I would have a shitload of them just sitting around still in the common route. Don't let it get to be too much of a habit or you'll miss out on a lot of great stuff.
This walkthrough worked well for me.
Also, Rewrite would probably be up your alley. The common route is sort of long, but it held my attention well enough to keep me interested, and the character routes are all great so far and full of some pretty crazy shit. It's pretty far removed from your typical Key novel so I avoided it for a while, but I'm completely hooked on it now. Pic related, possible spoilers.
Why do people find that one sad? You know from the first two minutes that they both die, and by that reasoning, you can probably tell that their parents die too.
>bah my aunt or whatever treats me poorly, not like there's a fucking war going on and my mom's dead and my sister needs to be provided for or anything
>fuck this shit, let's raid farms and hole up in a cave
>whoops she died lol
Are you me?
Not really an anime, but that one scene in the Fate/Stay Night VN where Saber is resting against that tree.
The only anime to ever make me cry is Anohana, right when they find the fucking letters ;_;
Anyone who sat through that without tears is lying.
steins;gate made me cry, but that's just because I'm transsexual
>there are people that think watching 200+ series is outrageous
I've watched about 180 full size TV series, either one or two cours, and 30+ OVA series, some of which are longer than TV series, and movies. I don't watch anime obsessively, I just watch what I like each season. Fucking newfag clowns having watched a total of 20 fucking series think they're hot shit.
This. I just couldn't be sad at the sister's death, I was too busy being infuriated with how much of a shithead the brother was.
WEEEE FOOOOUND YOOOOOOU
