when was the last time you cried because of an anime?
I like these threads but /a/ seems to hate them. I mean aside from obvious shows ( Clannad / Angel Beats! / Ano Hana etc etc. ) There's not a lot of new "Feels" type shows lately. I mean with regards to shows dedicated to a feels trips. So odds are no one is going to keep this thread alive. Maybe one day someone will post a good feels / sad / etc type of thread and will be alive longer than 20 seconds.
This fucking episode.
/a/ main interests are :
1. waifu war
2. shitpost on overrated show
3. shitpost/discussing anime/manga before/after its release (oregairu sub, onepiece scan, etc)
4. best/worst girl
6. i dont even know anymore
And I'll input: Yuna is a Hero the last half of the last episode. Throughout the whole series they developed her and then at the end...
They tried to be like Madoka, but it failed throughout. Great watch, but when you feel only at the end ( which is ok ) it wasn't enough. All well. This is recent one that made me cry.
"I loved you Araragi"
I fucking bawled.
Fuck SHAFT. Fuck Nisioisn. Fuck everything.
The train station part. Nothing beats the power of
Watching Log Horizon S2, not even at the sad parts just randomly. It's pretty weird, I think it's kind of subliminal. Maybe it was the QUALITY. Am I the only one that experienced this?
I hope one day to have a son and to watch it with him.
To OP, pic related, Steins Gate because in a way it felt like Madoka.
I am glad I watched it without the spoilers...well played it first, it was all unexpected then.
Is true that the dub is actually good?
I have never cried in front of an anime , are you guys this fragile?
anyways , the anime that brought me the most feels are Rainbow, Steins Gate, Cowboy bebop, Bokurano...I might add some more if I remember
Too lazy to get the ep and screencap it but this scene.
I love that adorable bastard.
what youre essentially crying to, are human emotions and interactions displayed in an artform (anime). if just sounds stupid because you simplify it.
it's like you are saying "dude why are you crying in front of a stone and a few flowers?" when i'm at the funeral of my mother.
Im chihirofag, i enjoy other fag tears.
The end of K-on was rough because it made me remember how much I miss highschool, and that I will never return to those days when I had good friends and wasn't so sick. Ulcerlative colitis has destroyed my early 20s.
I think Evangelion is going to do it soon. Asuka in that bath tub scence,and shinjji almost killing toji nearly got me.
I've only played DR one. Didn't think it was possible to cry with murder mystery.
I think you wasn't in the mood with Planetarian. It's not possible to dislike that buildup and ending.
Did you read it few by few? I thought it was more effective because i've read in one go.
Shit hit me really hard
When her hand fell and Sougo put it on his face while crying
I cried so hard i choked
it wasn't a murder mystery that made me cry in the second one. it was in the final trial, the pull off huge twists like they did in the first one, but a whole lot crazier. if you want to know it put simply
you and all the other kids were the bad guy all along, and a few other things
but the final trial was pretty messed up for me, and it made me feel a little sick the first time i played it. near the end i reached my breaking point and teared up a little until the credits
Gundam Unicorn episode 7. Like, I knew it was coming, but it still fucked me up so bad. There was snot and everything.
Man, I just wanted this stoic pile of cliches and badly written shock factor backstory to find some fucking happiness in life.
Damn. It sounds very good. I'm still mad at NIS America, i could only play it on the PSP with the fan translation that was in progress. The Vita is too expensive here and the translation didn't appeal to me.
actually, despite what people say about nisa, their translation was phenomenal, and so was the dub. the vita version also has better resolution and extras, including new modes and trophies.
sucks about vita being too expensive though. where do you live?
This was the moment that made me cry because of an anime in a very long time.
The last time I cried was when I finished Saya's route from Little Busters EX and the true route for Period.
Whoever did QA for the second game should be fired. There were errors everywhere.
I thought the dubs for both games were pretty good. Something else interesting is that thebfan translation of DR1 is actually way worse about taking liberties and that kind of thing than the NISA release, partially because the devs kept NISA on a very tight leash.
Not him, but DR2 had a bunch of spelling mistakes and at least one example of the blue colour tag being fucked up, as well as some occasionally weird word placement. I didn't notice very much but that's just me.
Stuff like memes where there were no memes before and really contrived references for no apparent reason. There was a thread on /v/ about it ages ago and I can't remember much. The fan project was still a hell of an effort, though.
Quality Assurance. Basically checking everything to make sure no one fucked up.
I should rephrase that, though... Whoever was typing the lines made some mistakes, like pic related.
he tried to stick to the "style" of the game, and a lot of things that were said were really weird and vauge.
lots of the kid's abilities were actually hard to tell because of this, and so were a lot of the rules of the killing game. some of the dialouge was also too goofy to take whole heartedly because of this too
This just made me angry. Violin dies in surgery, and apparently it's more important that we see MC in a concert being sad about her? The general treatment of the characters (as drama setpieces) was horribly manipulative and just got my goat in the extreme, because I wanted to love the show, but they just made it really hard. The last time I was this mad over creative decisions was probably Arsonist Ape.
I'm quite a faggot so i normally cry if the anime is somewhat decent and has an emotive moment.
Last time i cried was watching the episode 24 of K-On when they played that song to azusa.
Only time I legitimately cried while watching anime
Anime: FMA Brotherhood, that moment when Al's body sends Ed back and Ed swears he'll find him again.
Manga: No Need for Tenchi, when Ryoko defeats evil Ayaka and knows she's fucked into a black hole, she just smiles and says, "See ya."
Even though /a/ has spoiled this beforehand, the scene's execution and the OST are really great.
uhhh....last night watching A Certain Scientific Railgun, that conversation Misaka has with Kamijo on the bridge right before he goes to fight Accelerator. And several parts before that, seriously the second season is so much better than the first.
I'm not the type to get super emotional when watching anime, but man this fucked me up.
Let's just be happy that Mother's Rosario ending was... almost respectful. That was already something.
There actually is no friend like your right hand, apparently.
I'm not sure if that's a good message thouhg.
This. Shit was sad, man.
this made me sad, almost shed a tear, but what is more sad that the faggots give them a fucking asspull reincarnation
>muh happy ending
>muh special pig that survives to everything because no one knows why
they killed the sacrifice scene
The thing is, I think it could have been good. If someone (filthy secondary here, so I don't know whose fault it is) had cared about their characters and paid attention to what they were doing with tones and themes, they could have made something really good. But they were more interested in throwing flash-in-the-pan, sentimental "drama" at the viewers, so everything else suffered. The main character inspires a girl to undergo dangerous surgery, and then she dies under the knife while he's off winning a competition? That would be maximum edgy, except they don't even realize what they've scripted.
I didn't cry since I have a hard time connecting and feeling empathy in sports anime, but during
that scene when everyone was just little boys playing Ping Pong, having funI definitely felt sad.
RahXephon Episode 19. MotherFUCKER.
No you're right. Please continue crying over your chinese cartoons.
Ending of Rolling Girls. I'm probably a huge fag but best girl leaving forever totally got to me.
Fuck the anime, but that manga was too emotional for a chinese cartoon, holy shit. I didn't cry, but I remember being an edgy sixteen year old utilitarian and shocking the hell out of myself by wanting them not to
mercy kill AU grill to protect the world.
When I rewatched PLANETES, and then this.
>stop having emotions people!
I dunno. Oddly enough why I wa actually angry at this show, at the end I didn't feel so enraged. I think I didn't feel the dissonance between sad and "funny" moments so much because I already saw how manipulative it was and I was like "well, I know what they're gonna try to convey: it's bullshit but what the hell, it has its moments, production values are very good, so don't take it too seriousy and enjoy".
For example, I actually lol'ed at the cat. So damn corny and predictable. Still, it didn't made me angry, at most a little pissed that it dragged on.
The glorified bulliying in the first episodes on the other hand, I wasn't even sure why I watched it.
Anyway I think I cried the hardest at a manga, actually. Near Nausicaa's end. Probably not the most emotional manga out there, but the "purification" was pretty intense to me.
Just because there are more mature books than mature anime doesn't mean that there are NO mature anime, nor does it mean that people who get emotionally invested in anime are any more faggoty than those who read books.
still agree that people who cry to shit like SAO are colossal faggots, though same thing with shit like Twilight, though
Symphogay made me tear up more than I expected. Some of them were tears of joy.
>Why do you keep apologizing?
I just wanted cute girls doing cute things.
> I think I didn't feel the dissonance between sad and "funny" moments so much
If the funny moments were at least funny, maybe I wouldn't have cared, but going from people crying because they're traumatized about death to "LEL I TSUNDERE-SLAP YOU BCUZ U R PERVERT AND I CANT GET MARRIED NOW" was just baffling.
oh fuck, I think it might be starting to rain.
Had good tits?
SAO is something really strange to me not really because people enjoyed the stupid parts, but because I can't see how people that enjoyed the first cour (I'll use the anime for the sake of simplicity) can like parts like Sinon's Ass, basically. I mean... I could see it if they were different animes. Aren't people angry/disappointed that it had so different tones?
It's almost dawn here anon.
I'm tempted to stay awake, look at the sun rewatching it, and crying like a puppy exaclty like I did that day.
Yeah, this. That ending was just one heartbreaking but sweet scene after another.
2015 has gotten off to quite a weepy start, because I cried during the last episodes of Garo and Death Parade too, as well as episode 23 of Shirobako. Nothing made me cry in all of 2014 except Shingeki no Bahamut Genesis and a couple episodes of Mushishi.
I can see your point. I dunno, I probably got that it was deeply flawed already and it didn't bother me anymore, just that.
Actually in retrospect maybe they should've played the harem card a little more for variety, at least it would've been funnier. See more Emi action, damn, I wasn't even sure she was still interested in him at the end.
What anime deals with father/son relationships? I can only think of clannad, and that scene where he reconciles with his dad made me break down in tears more than any other scene in that anime.
Garo was really damn good on that front, as well as many others.
>It's easier with a visual medium
yeah, for fags autistic people that have never read a book, when you are reading you use your mind to imagine the scenario, from shitty quality animes, to 5cm/s quality
More Emi would have been great, but I don't think they could have pulled off a harem. Their idea of romance was "we say two characters are dating, and then go five episodes without seeing them together, then mention that they're still dating, and then five episodes later they break up."
Lucky Star gave me that "Well shit" feeling, but nothing really sad
K-On and Angel Beats made me feel depressed for a few days
The first season of Clannad made me shed tears because of the whole "DONT FUCKING FORGET HER" bullshit.
As far as moving deaths, then that one was unbeatable, yeah. Lulu was such a good girl; she really did want nothing more than for the person she cared about, and the person that person cared about, to be happy.
I cried so fucking bad with Yoh "death" in Shaman King. Anna picking his earphones, everyone talking about him, very emotive.
Most recently was your lie in april when [spoilers]kaori died[/spoilers]. Shit had me laughing because it was obvious, but was still heartfelt none the less
>I am reduced to tears at the end of every Kawamori show.
I'm watching SDF Macross for the first time, and episode 18 already cut seriously deep. How much worse it it going to get?
Oh god, that and the part when Anna's spirit appears and tells Leon that the flames were never a curse or about revenge at all.
Fuck, I already miss this show so much. Season 2 has big shoes to fill.
It's getting S2? I dropped this after the three ep rule because it seemed like generic action, but then it got a huge following later. Did I fucked up?
I don't get how people found this less than insufferable.
Nah man. Hawk coming back was beautiful. My heart cried even more because of that. The point was that it wasn't a useless pig. When it came down to serious shit, this bro ass nigga was gonna sacrifice himself for everyone.
>I don't get how people found this less than insufferable.
The plot was actually good, but it was the dialogue that was bad. Would have been better if they compressed it to a movie so it would meander less.
Girls und Panzer at the Katyusha song after a month away from anime due to real life.
>wow I want to be a 2d little girl
overwhelmed my thoughts and emotions. Strange experience in retrospect.
That didn't get me, but that scene in one of the final episodes where they show all the team members having their alternate reality dreams and it's all of such mundane, ordinary stuff like going to their kids' PTA meetings or working in a bakery brought the tears. Everyone remembers that part for Viral's dream family, but it was that one shot of two of the bridge crewmembers sleeping side by side with their glasses folded on the bedside table that made me break down.
Came pretty close?
This scene from The Garden of Words.
>Did I fucked up?
In my opinion, it's more than worthy of another shot. It was the ride of the season, and it makes pretty intelligent use of many action tropes. Plus the cast is great.
I even watched it in the theater and it wasn't anything special.
Maybe I'm a monster.
>they had the commentary
>hearing Hanakana saying "it's really a fetishist movie!" in the same theater where you watched The Avengers
>feels weird man
watching about Butterfly Joe and especially Kong struggle to be someone that everyone else expected him to be, brought me to tears ;_;
I think the only time was rewatching the Clannad Ushio scene and Kyousuke's scene in Little Busters (though the emotions were mainly built from reading the VNs).
Generally I cry more from reading VNs than anything.
I was watching DxD 2nd season the other day and fuck, i teared when the souls of Yuuto's friends come back and encourage him to not worry about being the only survivor, i didn't expect it to make me cry.
Now you can call me gay if you want
me too anon, whole ending sequence had me going. That and the insert song had me on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.
I don't think she meant to dick Hikaru around the way she did; she just didn't know how to handle her fame, and "be nice to everyone" is just her default state. Remember, Minmay's only fifteen for the majority of the story. Teenage girls are like that.
I've been feeling really bad for her after the timeskip.
>4 cucking chan
>Not liking traps
>Year of our lord 403*5
When Alexander Anderson died. I think the music is what pushed me over the edge.
Utilitarianism isn't necessarily edgy. You can be an edgy utilitarian and say shit like that we should sterilize disabled people or execute all criminals, but you can also be a non-edgy utilitarian and say all human life is extremely valuable, hatred and revenge are both wrong, and we should do everything possible to make people happy. Edgy people will be edgy, whether they believe in utilitarianism or fucking virtue ethics.
Besides, what you want has nothing to do with what you think is right. I often find myself wanting things that go against what I believe intellectually. While I believe revenge is immoral, it still FEELS right and it is difficult to overcome that instinct. That's what makes me the most upset in fiction: when I understand something is right but it feels wrong.
>If I can see you again, I will say the words that I could not say 8 years ago...
I read naruto from when I was 12 to the very end.
When I finished, I knew my childhood was dead and life lost a bit of it's shine for me. For my older brother, this was dragon ball and for my dad it's gundam, but he gets to watch gundam until he dies because it will never fucking end.
yeah but mine did.
>tfw born too late for infinite gundam
>tfw born too early for future infinite manga
>tfw born just in time to be addicted to the cheesiest bullshit of all time.
>That is the defining tenet.
It is the defining tenet, but you can view it in one of two ways which is either edgy or non-edgy.
We should try to maximize the sum of human happiness minus the sum of human suffering.
Edgy version (me at age 15):
People are disposable tools who should be used for the good of society. Each person is practically worthless when compared to all 7 billion. We must maximize the good of all people, so individuals are disposable pawns.
Anti-edgy version (me now):
All people are extremely and equally important. We should do everything we can to make all people happy as every person is deserving of happiness.
It's the same in actual content, but quite different in tone.
>normal people marry
>wife gets pregnant
>wife spews a gelatinous mass of living green mold instead of a baby
>no sons or daughters
>find baby under floor months later
>mother overjoyed, father terrified
>it grows to have the appearance of a 3-year old kid in half a year
>more babby under floor
>firstborn freak child grows spores
>mfw short lifespan
>MFW they have to kill it
>_MFW_ it's a cycle: they have to kill every single child that appears under their floor after having raised it for years and growing attached
That episode just freaked me out. It was staged like a horror movie. Plus it was kind of hard to empathize with the mother, especially after she stabbed Ginko. I cried at a bunch of others though, like the rainbow episode.
I see. Though I also think it isn't as bad as you think since some people don't have ANY sort of ethical philosophy at all. I respect anyone who has sat down and hammered out what they believe and how they will act, but I do go full
>muh logical philosophy
when people use their feelings as an argument.
Most people do have some sort of formalized moral philosophy, but I have no patience for anyone who does not.
Little busters! Refrain is getting to me tonight. Goddamn.
Gintama. episode 71.
I have found something I want to protect.
No matter how many times the power's cut, the breakers short...or even if this body is destroyed, I will never forget.
So please don't forget me as well. This way my soul...will be able to live on in everybody's heart!
forever best girl
this fucking scene, jesus christ. First anime to make me cry
He was too good for this mean earth.
I wish he'd hung around a little longer and at least got to meet ero dad. It would have been fun to watch them play off each other, I bet.
