SPOLIERS!

Oddly enough, the only times I've ever teared up at any show ever was not a particularly sad show, Cowboy Bebop. It's the scene where Faye is watching the video tape from her past, and it just hit me for some reason. And I almost did again when she went back to her old house and saw the destruction.

Also, the closing credits of Jupiter Jazz Part 2 made me tear cause the music, Space Lion, is so unbelievably beautiful.

I'm a very teary person, so this will be a long list...

- Blue Drop, last episode
- CANAAN, episode 10
- Code Geass R2, last episode
- Elfen Lied, the dog scene and the last episode
- Ga-Rei~Zero, last episode

- End of Evangelion
- Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22 (when I didn't have the subs and thought Asuka was dead...)

Asuka's not a bitch, she just denies her innocence in a bitchy way.

I usually get a little teary-eyed at the end of most good series, no matter what the narrative outcome (except when it's a total cop-out ending to an otherwise terrific show).

The only anime work that has ever pushed me beyond dewy eyes and into all-out weeping territory was Grave of the Fireflies. I cried like a little girl.

One word: Never. However, the opening scene in episode 33 of SEED Destiny almost succeeded.
- Mai-HiME, 8th and 25st episodes

That series had any serious moments?

It had a few of them. It's a bit like EVA, it starts lightly, with a few hints of darkness, then it goes full serious at 16/17th episode, and ends with an (almost) "Congratulations" scene.

Not really because Evangelion isn't girly, has bad jokes, music that wants me to tear my eardrum out, ultra brief fighting, horrid characters, mostly bland monsters, too much fanservice, awful Gunbuster parodies, and has pacing that drags on. I could go on but this is not the topic for......... That ONE Series......... :headbeat:

No anime made me cry, but I thought the ending to Dragon Ball GT was pretty sad though.

You have no soul if that movie didn't get to you.

I was talking about the general mood of the series xD

But hei, the music is awesome o.O
I gave it a 9/10, not because of it's little things, but because of the enjoyment I had while watching. I really attached to the characters.
Btw, I hate ecchi fanservice, but I watched it without even noticing it. well, maybe sometimes....

Elfen Lied made me cry once and almost managed it twice. The moment where
SPOILER: Show
the little girl diclonius whose name escapes me and her father die (though, according to what I've heard of the manga, I might not be correct here)
pushed me over the edge. It was probably a mixture of things, considering everything that happens in the last few episodes, but that was the moment that got me. I know I would have cried when
SPOILER: Show
the kids kill Lucy's doggie,
but I knew that was going to happen and skipped past it. I can watch most things, but not that.

I'm sure there are plenty of other series that'll make me cry, once I get around to watching them. Haven't really watched much.
I frequently herp where I should derp. Also music.

I once watched Grave of the Fireflies when I should have been doing my homework, and right when the movie ended my mom started yelling at me for "wasting" the last two hours, to which I broke down in tears and explained a brief synopsis of the film. She then understood and stopped yelling.

I almost never cry over movies/television, but damn it all if Natsume Yuujinchou didn't make me cry several times over the course of the first season. It was brutal for such a delicate summer show. They didn't waste any time either. I think the episode with
SPOILER: Show
the little god and the old lady
was like the second or third one, and that made me cry the most. fffff

Augh, that scene. You can see it coming from miles away but I still had to look down. It's an extremely cheap play for emotions, but it gets me every damn time no matter the medium.

Natsume Yuujinchou was a wonderfully touching slice of life show. I got a lump in my throat a few times during its 2 season run. I remember at the end of one episode (was it a fox girl? I can't remember) where the spirit was so attached to the human, that at the same time I felt really touched by the display of her jumping happily next to him and realizing at the same time that he will never be able to see her (and she realizing it also).

I recommended this series to a lot of people. The supernatural aspect of the show is really just a canvas, and while you have some episodes that focus on things that are very material, it all pans out nicely as a slow moving slice of life show rooted in the premise of the book of names and the main character's grandmother. And now and then you get these nice gems that are really heartwarming.


I think the last time I teared up from an anime was probably a year or so ago when Clannad After Story was airing. While most of the first season was almost like mud, and most of the After Story was as well, when it got to the point when Tomoya was with his estranged daughter in that field where she lost that robot, it was hard to contain myself. Before that, it was maybe the end of Honey and Clover (second season).

Episode 8 and the final episode of Gurren Lagann. I cried so many manly tears.

Pokemon: The First Movie - When the 4kids version came to cinemas in Christmas 1999 I went and saw it. I cried when Ash was frozen.
Pokemon 2000 - I'm not sure if I teared up at all when it first came out. When I re-watched it two years ago, I teared up a bit near the end because it was a pure glimpse into my childhood.
Pokemon 3 - I cry tears of awesomeness when Ash is saved by Charizard, I can't recall tearing up over the other parts.

Kiki's Delivery Service - It was in the second half of this beautiful picture that I began to try tears of happy
Princess Mononoke - Another beautiful picture worthy of my happy tears and manly sad tears.
Spirited Away - *Crys*

Cowboy Bebop - 'Jupiter Jazz Pt II', 'Speak Like a Child', 'Hard Luck Woman' and 'The Real Folk Blues Part II' - I think mentioning the name of these episodes alone should indciate which parts I shed some tears over.

Strangely, I can't recall crying at any point in Neon Genesis Evangelion or The End of Evangelion.

I don’t think an anime has ever made me cry, though the ending to texhnolyze came close.

Watching Millennium Actress in theatre, my eyes leaked on cue to the reporter's tears.

The misty-eye scenes I remember most clearly are in Nanoha A's, the "I can still shoot" and "Upgrade required -- install part number [whatever]" scenes; and the alternate legend and Amazing Grace scenes in the final episode of Sora no Woto.

Cowboy Bebop totally pulled at my heartstrings, but no tears were shed. And I have no earthly idea why this came to pass, but freaking FLCL got me all flustered and emotional. Don't judge me.
