Sometimes you're in the mood for something depressing.  Anime is one of those kind of things where you're least expected to be affected emotionally so it's a pleasant surprise when it does.

Yuuichi Aizawa, a high school student, returns to a town that he last visited 7 years previously to live with his aunt and cousin. For a reason he’s not quite sure of, he can hardly remember anything about his last visit, but initially this doesn’t seem to worry him too much.

The day after he arrives he goes into town where he (literally) bumps into a girl named Ayu Tsukimiya, and Yuuichi’s memories slowly begin to return.

I've watched this three times, each of which at different stages of my life and every single time it depresses me.  The first time I've seen it was when I was but a child and couldn't understand what the situation was but the depiction of the kids in the Anime and their ordeals actually got to me and made me sad.  The second time was when I was an adult and understood what was going on and that really depressed me.  The third time was when I was much older and have seen a lot of other "depressing" films (Anime and non-Anime alike) and had wanted to see this again just for the heck of it, to test whether the affects of the first 2 times I've seen it were just flukes.  And I must say, it tugged at my heartstrings and depressed me.

After my friend and I finished binging Anohana, we lay face down full of tears. It's rare for a show to make you have both happy and sad tears the same time..and this show does it

Almost makes you cry.

Depressing, but still one of the best anime to watch.

Highly recommended.

Cry? Ugh. Why is this here! GAH! Same idiots that put bleach and naruto in top-ten romance catagory. Not kidding. A few episodes are bring downs, because occasionally someone dies. It never made me cry. Should definately not be this high... omg, i see Clannad right beside it. YOU PUT THIS BESIDE CLANNAD?! The gall! A wonky season ending is not an excuse to put this anime here.

Shut the fuck up you clannad groupie. Hating on all the other shows because clannad is on a 'completely different level'. Fuck off with that garbage, the only time I ever felt sad in the entirety of that series was with that girl whose parents died. I couldn't give a fuck about nagisa dying she was annoying as shit. If you want to watch a real sad anime anohana is the g.o.a.t in that category.
