Looking for sad series

Postby clafann1 » Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:47 am

I'm making a very sad AMV from several anime series, I got nearly 40% done, but I'm out of (good) footage.
I would like you to recommend me anime episodes where good sad scenes happen (such as sacrifices, loneliness, deaths, broken hearts...)

The AMV is coming out great, just need a little more push :mrgreen:

Samurai X - Trust and Betrayal
Spoiler :
Check out the relationship between Kenshin and Tomoe. Dies for him and he's kinda sad. :-(

Samurai X - Reflection
Spoiler :
The entire thing is pretty much sad. Kenshin all alone in a hut as he's dying and remembering his friends back home. He's reunited with Kamiya Kaoru in the end. Extremely emotional OVA, especially if you've seen the series first.

Chrono Crusade's last episodes would fit sadness perfectly.

School Days - you get really depressed while watching the series. :)
Sola - I think there were some sad scenes or at least they could be editted into painfully looking ones.
Clannad - I prefer the stories that aren't asosieted with the real plot (Kyou ova, Tomoyo ova, + in after story eps 5 and 6 > Sagara Misae x Shima Katsuki)
Bungaku Shoujo - Mostly the movie
Code Geass - I felt like crying at the last ep but I guess you need to see the whole thing to cry :)
D. Gray Man - I'd say that it has a lot of lonely and sad scenes
Ef - Tale of melodies is probably sadder than Tale of memories

I tried Elfen lied but it was more gore than sad...I'm gonna try Angel Beats...
There is a preview of the AMV at 50% (not much more done by now), there is a lot of editing remaining... :p

Eureka Seven (somewhere in the 40s episodes)

I don't think i'll be spoiling anything by saying this...

Basically, alien girl runs away from human boy she's in love with. Boy pursues and finds girl kneeling in the middle of the forest, clinging to her infected arm. Boy tries to treat the arm with no success. Girl pulls away, crying in sorrow as she feels no longer worthy of being with him anymore. Boy grabs rock and beats his own arm till it bleeds and says, "Now we're the same...if my arms swell up too we'll both be the same!" She tries to stop him...but...

Aww...man, i can't go on...*sniff*
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

^Though E7 has its sad moments, I don't think it really qualifies for an entirely sad series. I found that part more sweet and slightly tragic than flat out 'OHGODWHYYY *bawls*'
If the manga was animated,
then it would qualify in my books, pff.

Umm I'd say:
-CLANNAD ~AFTER STORY~ (particularly the last 10 or so episodes)
-Wolf's Rain (last 4 OVAs. Oh man).
-CLANNAD's movie (same reason as After Story, but its just different animation *shrugs*)
-Ano Hana
-Tokyo Godfathers

I've looked some series like Elfen Lied, they had sad moments, but It didn't feel it would fit my AMV, not enough eye-catching :p

I'll throw in "Princess Tutu."
Making an amv, is rather like being the director of a Broadway show, where you have a million dancers and each of them only knows one step.
