View topic - Saddest Anime Ever?
Well, I've never seen Grave of the Fireflies, so that doesn't qualify as the saddest in my book...yet. When I was a kid (dating myself here) there were two anime movies made based on a little unicorn called (aptly enough) Unico.
I always thought it was sad that in the end, he always ended up alone and could never stay with the friends he made. Sort of ironic considering his special ability was to create harmony or joy or something like that. So that one gets my vote.
I must thank you.... I've been trying to remember what the name of those movies were for quite a while. I must hunt down a copy of Unico now.
As I remember (it's been 20 years or more since I've seen it), Unico was much more of a really dark movie than a sad film (especially the second film)...

Anyway back on topic I'll have to agree with Kenji777 the Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) OVAs were something else.
Then again I haven't seen too many Anime that aren't already on American TV so I'm sure I'm missing out on some that haven't made it over yet.

Marohoromatic....second to last episode.
I expect you're talking about Something More Beautiful? I really loved the ending of that series for its emotional impact. The last episode was a great follow-up to it, too.

I've not read the manga yet. I've got the first two volumes in Japanese, but I've watched the series a few times. Fruits Basket builds up the emotional impact quite a bit before releasing it, where it hits more suddenly in Mahoromatic.

It's not that I'm not knowledgeable, I just have trouble explaining the things I know ;)

Never heard of Air TV.
Also, Gankutsuo has a part that really had me crying...almost as bad as GotF.
Lots of animes have sad parts that make me tear up, but for those two I was really crying ^_^;;
