ITT: Anime/manga where either everyone dies or it's not afraid to kill off it's main characters

or

George R.R. Martin Anime

I'll start:

Gantz
Devilman

Everyone dies in JoJo at one point execpt they don't but in someway they still did.

Not really. The first Gantz "main"characters were red herrings and were promptly killed off, after that when the real cast appeared and fucking Kato gets revived , you just know no one else is going to get killed and it's just an illusion.

if I had infinite money one of the animu I'd fund would be a full adaptation of Devilman with great production values that uses the manga's style (ironing out some of the technical flaws of 70s Nagai while still keeping the appealing craziness)

The only character who never died was Mr Satan. Think about it for a second.

>>119404348
this even though death meant literally less then jack shit in the series.
>>
>>119404443
well theyre not really "killed off" when they can come back at any time and you still get to watch them train and fight in the afterlife
>>
Basically anything Ryukishi.

Literally everyone dies in Higurashi and Umineko.
Just stick to the VN and don't watch the anime.

>>119404350
Yeah but that's only because of plot and the story is already set in stone.
Everyone else will likely die at any point except for those two and that girl.
God choice.
>>
By the end of it, only a small handful of characters were still alive. Best boy and best girl are among the survivors.
>>
Hunter x Hunter kills a fair few characters, and they actually stay dead unlike in other shounen series (with the exception of Kaito). Also gives you a short scare for the main character if you hadn't read the manga before watching it.

Technically Angel Beats as all the characters 'die' (in a way)...

I wouldn't have been mad if Gon's last punch had killed him and Killua along with Pitou and that was the end of the series. People spout about how it's a deconstruction, if that happened, there would be no debating it.
>>
Danganronpa
>>
>>119404733
it probably would have been a decent end in and of itself, but the problem is that theres still loose ends that needed to be dealt with at that point, however Gon didn't necessarily need to be alive for it, in fact at that point it would have been a progressively natural end point for Gon's Charactor, hence why it wouldn't have been weird for him, but I highly doubt killua would have died from that.
>>
>>119404778
Please don't talk about shit.

Seriously? a thread about character death's and no Victory Gundam?

Literately only 6% of the cast survived the series and many of the deceased had some of the most brutal deaths in mecha.

Zeta gundam is still pretty brutal and is considred the creme de la creme of gundam but none is more brutal than victory.
>>
Hellstar Remina
>>
>>119404801
Yeah, Gon really isn't an important character in the story, I think it would be better if he had died there, but Killua dying there would just be romanticizing it. It would also be incredibly lazy, because Killua's character only really has a story if he's with Gon, so no Gon = no Killua, that's why we aren't going to get chapters about Killua + Alluka adventures, we're going to get flashbacks once he and Gon are reunited, but that's assuming Togashi actually writes something.
>>
>>119404602
No, just no. That series only kills off characters that get little to no development. The deaths in that series never hit an emotional cord.

Meruem is a villain; they die in all shonens.

What development did Komugi get? Good Ungi Player & kind hearted............ anything else?

Bee Girl? Not a chance. No development whatsoever. She was killed to darken the tone of the new arc.

Meruem wasn't your typical villain though, he had understandable motives that were easy to relate to and understand, and Komugi fixed him, he was basically a high functioning sociopath, and she fixed him, but it was too late.

Bee girl and her husbando though, they had no development, I wasn't implying they did, just the brutality of their deaths was inappropriate for a kid's show, so it was sort of shocking.

Yeah, the VN.
The anime isn't *that* terrible but it pales hard compared to the VN and messes the end message.
To the point where the moral you get out of the anime is the direct opposite of what you get from reading the VN.

Everyone in Lordgenome's army except Viral, all of Team Gurren's ganmen pilots, the Anti-spirals, and to top it off three characters in the main cast that were important to the plot died as well (Kamina, Kittan, and Nia) Not insanely high considering how wide the character roster is, but for a show with such an optimistic tone it sure as hell wasn't low.

Well, by deaths, I mean main character dying.
That's basically what the whole 'not afraid to kill off its main characters' thing is.

LOGH had millions of people dying in every space battle.
It has to be 'main characters' dying.
I'd even say LOGH because some of the main cast died at bad plot timing.

>>119410368
Pfffftt, hahaha.

I did because the writer wouldn't shut up about how TTGL was a homage to Getter Robo and what not.

The first major death in Getter Robo is that of Musashi's, and that mirrors Kamina's death closely, and then the token chick, the scientist and the annoying kid also proceed to die in a Getter nuclear explosion at the labs. There are also major deaths in the sequel, Getter Robo Go and it goes on and on till the author actually died himself.
