>This is my favorite along with Mother Simpson ending.
This whole movie's a heartwarming/tearjerker moment.
... well, if you watch the uncensored version at least.
Oh, fucking hell, anon.
The uncensored version had me shedding at least a tear by the end.
And then it turned out Fry went back in time and spent time with his family.
Everyone gets all teary at Jurassic Bark and Luck of the Fryish but Leela's home world especially before she finds out.
>I'LL KILL YOU
>that would be best
Agreed. Leela's homeworld has some heart wrenching lines. Also I think the song that plays at the end of that episode also blows the fuck out of the songs for Jurassic Bark and Luck of the Fryrish.
I just realized, even without the uncensored ending, Leafie isn't long for this world, is she?
I might be remembering wrong, but doesn't she start to look battered and haggard towards the end again?
She's sick because she spent too much time in the water and wasn't fed properly like on the farm. Either way, she knew she wouldn't survive the Winter, which is part of the reason why she sacrificed herself to one-eye.
W-well at least she got her wish
Greenie won't ever find out what happened to his chicken mother
This is the best written scene in the entire franchise
Zuko is one of the best redemed villains in anything. They did that shit really well, it wasn't rushed.
They took their time, gave him what Zuko had been wanting for so long before he realised he had to throw it all back in their faces.
Jesus, I'm one sappy faggot. I'll add animu for kicks.
Mother Simpson ending
Bart gets an F
>Waltz with Bashir
That fucking ending
>5cm per second
She doesn't declare her love, and lives on in regret
>Mary and Max
The final scene, with
Max dead, and Mary looking up at the postcards on the ceiling, realising how much she meant to him in his life.
The memory of losing the Hockey tournament, and the subsequent comforting
Riley confesses her depression to her parents
"I don't know if you're really my Grunkle..."
Mabel comforts Dipper after being rejected by everyone on Valentine's Day
>Toy Story 2
"When somebody loved me..."
>Toy Story 3
Andy says goodbye to the toys
The opening montage
Carl finds his wife's message in the book
Faye watches the tape of her younger, happier self speaking optimistically about the future, and realises she can't remember any of it.
>Ed Edd N'Eddy's Big Picture Show
Eddy thinks that he's lost Double D, and breaks down.
>Nobody brought up this
I know how you feel anon. This score does the same to me.
The protagonist remembers that
he was there at the Sabra and Shantila massacre, but to make it harder on the viewer, as we zoom in on the protagonist's POV, it cuts to the real life stock footage of people weeping over their dead family, and one dead girl's hand sticking through the rubble.
>Mother Simpson ending
I went to watch it after you said that and now I'm genuinely crying for the first time in 4 years. Fuck i'm sobbing like a child. It's not just the actual story of the episode, but it's the music, the memories of watching the show with my brother, and just the overall nostalgia. I just can't handle it.
that one episode of courage the cowardly dog explaining his origins nearly got me back in the day
more recently this shit took me by surprise
>that look that pmuch says "I wish you were dead" before Steven falls
She's the worst
Did I say anything about his family members? Please, read and comprehend.
I'm taking about you, he wouldn't give a shit about you if you cried. He will call you out a faggot. He can handle himself.
if you didn't perfectly mimic what the pirates in the audience did ur a faget.
The Ed, Edd n Eddy movie features two, one being when Eddy thinks he's lost Double D and cries for him (and is forgiven) and the other being when everyone loves him after they meet his brother
I was not ready to be reminded of this today
Remember when Disney made a film about the original creator crying because Disney made her film about her original character into something so bad it caused her to cry but in the Disney film they changed it to show her crying because it was good?
I am the warrior, let the battle be joined.
>Everyone loves them after meeting his brother
Fuck me if thats not one of the happiest moments in my life. Also
>Second verse, same as the first
I started to fucking breakdown
I never cared much for this scene as a kid, but damn this is heavy.
This got me pretty hard back when I first read it, everyone who says you can't write a good story with superman is a liar.
Soos is too pure for this world
And it doesn't help I know how sad a kid gets when his dad doesn't show up on his birthday.
Someone needs to make a /co/ approved feels chart
This >>78119166 is a good start
>Grundy's death on JLU
>Menace of the Madniks!/Chill of the Night! from BatB
>Heart of Ice on BTAS
>The Iron Giant
What always bothered me with that scene was why Homer got so upset when kicking Flanders out was his idea in the first place.
It's kind of undermined by the fact that he gets resurrected almost immediately after. But this still saddened kid me.
>They were too late.
When I dropped out of college my parents were so angry and disappointed in me. And slowly but surely I've worked to getting everything in my life on track and planning my life out. On the phone yesterday they told me how proud they were at how hard I've worked and that I didn't give up. I would give anything to go home for Christmas right now
How do you write heartwarming moments and tearjerker scenes without making them feel shoehorned in and forced?
Thinking about how much I want TFA to not suck.
Build up to it
Make it thematically appropriate/make sure there's a point to it
It must be easy for the audience to understand the situation and its consequences/implications
Don't overdo it
Thanks for the tips, anons.
Don't want to go on writing something and have it feel forced and contrived.
The entire 3rd season was just a huge kick to the gut.
I did a Gravity Falls fanfic which was feels oriented. Here's how I did it:
>Establish an element of teasing/banter between your two parties, so that the consoling seems more serious and important.
>Have a character invest in another character, but watch helplessly as their invested character is destroyed by some third party. People always relate to working hard and still failing.
>The easiest thing to do is to pull into your personal experiences. If you felt this way, what would you want someone to tell you to make you feel better? What made you feel sad when you were a kid, and how did it make you feel, in the simplest ways possible?
>Make the situations believable, and earthly (girl stands you up, parents die, etc)
You'll find that it starts coming naturally. I find it much easier to write feels stuff than comedy.
In the remote chance you were interested in reading it... https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11648939/1/From-the-Day-You-were-Born
That moment when the last unicorn decides to fight back, wins and all the unicorns return to the world. With that triumphant music in the background...goddamn I start tearing up every time.
Not a strong episode, but the ending always gets me.
>Watch this show with my GF
>Everytime Soos' father is mentioned I have to look away
>Cry a little bit
>I never had either parent growing up and this part of the show hurts me
Fuck. Why am I so weak?
Anyone else see It's such a Beautiful Day?
>I forgive you.
I cried like a bitch.
Gravity falls NWM got me just a bit when Pacifica said she was just another link in the worst chain and Dipper cheered her up. Also the credits of Dipper and Mabel vs the Future.
Also I don't think I could ever rewatch that final season of Moral Orel. Holy shit Passing got to me really hard, just seeing Clay staring at his drink and mourning.
The flashback sequences in Escape From Reality.
The worst is, that they know.
They know that the best thing they have, maybe the only thing that keep a large chunk of their audience coming back, is that said audience wants to see the Ice King storyline resolved, and the overarching story concluded. But they keep padding it out, because as long as they don't finish it, they can keep making more seasons.
It's like if Game of Thones literally only had the premise of "Winter is Coming" but they'd keep putting that off, and 95% of the episodes dealt with Tyrion swaggering off and talking shit at a new, whacky and probably rapey group of barely-recurring characters, then hopping on his pony at the end of the episode to talk go talk shit at someone else and drink more expensive booze.
I think the episode that got me the hardest was the Chocolate Boy one
>His nana leaves him with nothing but a bag of chocolate
>He becomes subconsciously addicted to chocolate because the taste reminds him of her
>He spends his young life begging and stealing chocolate, even stooping to eating it out of a dumpster
>All without knowing why he has this compulsion to eat chocolate
Why couldn't you just make me believe!"
Every fucking time...
>My dad was never there for me
>Never even paid child support
>Eventually he stopped showing up every other weekend
>I felt like he didn't give two shits about me
>I used to cry about it until my mother told me that my life was better without certain people in it
>and that if he didn't want to be involved with our family then it was his loss
I cheered out loud at the end of this episode
It's subjective, really.
Part 1 was a setup where Dipper realized the importance of Mabel in his life.
>A world is created for Mabel where the sufferings of life are eliminated, and a world exists only out of happiness. Mabel no longer has to grow up and experience one of life's most depressing points.
>Bill says that the world of fantasy that Mabel lives in is one that only somebody with a strong will can escape. Bill's evil, like the devil, plays on the idea that people's personal selfish wants overcome their morality as human beings to achieve success. This almost comes to a point where Dipper's crush on Wendy almost effectively captures him, playing on his selfish want for love over his morality as a human being.
>Dipper is challenged to answer why a world where people suffer is better than a world where people are always happy and get what they want, and Dipper's answer leads toward the philosophy of the Yin and the Yang, a philosophy that states that our suffering in life ultimately leads to our happiness, and that happiness alone cannot make us truly happy.
The idea about life that Dipper represents in the trial. Dipper represents a life that is mostly suffering, but it is that suffering itself that allows us to evolve and find the greatest happiness in ourselves as human beings.
Seeing Dipper shave his head to make Mabel feel better about the gum in her hair, and seeing Mabel put together her valentine's cards in a heart to cheer up Dipper is so much more rewarding than a life that simply gives somebody anything they want whenever they
Right now, I'm at a lower point in my life, and this episode has done a lot to make me more happy about the gift of life. It made me realize that maybe those who get everything they want out of life are not happy, because the greatest happiness can only come through our suffering as human beings.
I found this episode to be a very touching and important turning point in the series..
nigga she was bred to be absolutely loyal to rose.
for 5500 years she looked up to rose and after going through an interplanetary civil war against her home, she thought that maybe things could be different; maybe rose would treat her like a pearl; maybe they could live as equals.
maybe pearl could confess to rose that he doesn't just look up to rose, she's fucking in love with her.
but nah, rose ain't havin' that shit. and 5000 years go by, then rose meets another nigga and falls for him after seeing him fucking twice. pearl was justified in being jealous with greg. and if it ended there, it would be okay, buy once again, nah nigga; the murdercock swoops in outta nowhere and now rose is dead but not really 'cause now she's this infant human (pearl doesn't like humans) but steven isn't entirely 100% rose either. so everything is shit.
but steven now looks up to pearl, and maybe all of her hopes aren't lost and she can be happy for the first time in 5000 years. then this episode comes along revealing how rose kept secrets from her and she finds rose's sword that brings back all of these joyful and painful memories and she has a goddamn mental breakdown. so she runs away to the place where she agreed to join rose in the war to be alone with her emotions and the murdercock's offspring comes running after her; she tells the nigga to leave her alone but he don't listen. and maybe at some point she did wish steven was dead 'cause that might mean rose could come back. but right here >>78111551 we see that steven, and in turn rose, does in fact love pearl.
so fuck you, homie.
why are you so upset that pearl is such a complex character?
>because pearls aren't multifaceted hurr durr
I could see being upset by the whole situation, the whole thing where Steven killed Rose is really horrifying when I think about it. Eh she handles it way damn better than Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones.
>"You should go to a safe distance. I can take it from here"
I feel like most of mine have already been covered so I'll pull out a really obscure, old one.
the only moment that actually got me, the one time i never felt like this show was trying way too hard, was with the evil morty walking away. that episode was actually alright. i like the show, but god damn it tries way to hard to be emotional.
The episode with Smithers's dad gets me, specifically the part with his death. Mr Burns having that slow realization that he sent a baby's father to die was sadder than I was ready for
this episode, although it does get me laughing, hits me hard. im more of an andy, but i really did feel sorry for kevin and i totally understand what he was going through.
The scene in As Told By Ginger where you find out what happened to her, in large part because of the real life context. Not just a tearjerker, it actually really seriously upset me, and still does.
My main gripe is it seems really inconsistent.
In season 1, the first few times we're shown emotion, it's a nice break from the usual cynical sarcasm. You also expect things to sort of change from that point out (the end of season one).
But then as soon as season 2 starts, shit just goes right back to square one. I get Rick is supposed to be an asshole who secretly cares about people underneath, but damn, don't make him that much of an asshole. Or if you are, at least stick with it, and stop making him empathetic every time you roll and odd number.
She retired from her job, and he was trying to flatter her into coming back. Originally he succeeds, but then her VA passed away so they changed the ending that she passed away too.
I am a fifty-something year old man who gets choked up by a cartoon love story about a couple of robots. Is the cartoon that good or am I just that big a mushball? Or does it matter?
They way it's presented, it doesn't matter that it's a cartoon, it doesn't matter that they are robots.
Because the way it's presented?
Well, that is all. That love's about. And we'll recall, when time runs out. That it only takes a moment. To be loved a whole life long.
Man, that movie really got stuck in my head the first time I watched it.
I know it has a happy ending, but after watching Wall-E die a grand total of 3 times was more than I could bare. When he reboots and doesn't remember her I just remember feeling "Wow, that hurt".
Cried like a bitch, happy tears, but still like a bitch
I really thought they were going to go for an memory-loss ending and that Eve was going to have to reteach him how to not be just a robot just like he had taught her in the beginning. I started crying because my grandmother has Alzheimer's and it was also beautifully circular.
And then they kiss and it's happily ever after, and I was like, "oh, ok..."
Pretty much every time they play up to a villain's human side, and the fact that they may be doing it for reasons other than "to cause harm".
When something comes out that is "4chan" it's written off as "mean-spirited".
Whenever I see this I think way back to that one /co/ post that says something about Batman fucking her because she wanted to feel it before she died.
Needless to say, that ruined this for me.
She completly misjudge her relationship with rose. Rose always treated everyone nice, so she tought she was special. In a certain way, she was. But if everyone is special...
And then Greg comes along and she realises "Oh, this is how she treats special people". I think the fact that Steven is a bit like his father messes her up too. She expects him to be 1:1 his mother.
>pulling someone in to hug them/getting pulled into a hug midway through tearing up
Fuck me, I've been through that a few times. I've never even watched anything Avatar related but damn that gave me some goosebumps.
I thought this was pretty sad, though it doesn't beat courage's origin episode
There were a bunch from Mask of the Phantasm, but this is the one for me. Didn't think the first movie I saw in theaters would have so many of these moments.
Earlier this year my dad told me he was proud of me. He's only told me that a few times in my whole life and he said it in my shithole of an apartment I was living in for a while because I'm so fucking cheap and was on an internship.
Fuck man I'm so cheap that the shitty antenna I bought to watch the NBA finals on broke and we had to drive to Wal Mart to buy a new one.
But anyway it felt so amazing to hear that because I felt miserable at the time because I had no social life whatsoever and sometimes I didn't talk to anyone at all over the weekends and a few years earlier my dad got really mad at me for not finding a job over the summer until really late in the summer after my first year of college.
that bit at the end of the Lego movie where chris pratt is telling will ferrel/audience that they're the most interesting person bs made me fucking blubber like baby
Fuck you anon, I didn't need to remember this.
The ending to "Way of the Dee Dee"
It... It just gets to me man!
That scene in "Bart gets and F" where he fails his final test was kind of depressing. Especially when he says "This is as good as I can do, and I still failed".
>The Ed, Edd n Eddy movie features two, one being when Eddy thinks he's lost Double D and cries for him (and is forgiven) and the other being when everyone loves him after they meet his brother
>The Ed, Edd n Eddy movie features two
>The Ed, Edd n Eddy movie
>Ed, Edd n Eddy movie
The song that the group sings as the credits roll in the "everyone loves the eds" ending is the "friendship song" from the first episode, and the eds finally get to sing it with the kids on the cul-de-sac
What else can you say about a cartoon where the main character tries to kill himself and no one notices?
God fucking damn it that entire episode was heart wrenching. Its a shame she didn't become a regular character outside that one time with Croc. She'd make a nice supporting character for Bats.
>I didn't mean to.....
What issues are these? It seems like DC isn't really focusing on making the villains more human right now. Closest we have to it is Harley. Seems like the Riddler and Penguin could be made more human but any issue solely related to them would fail.
After half a season of the darkest, most soul crushing episodes of the series this was a really nice, sweet moment
This one made me cry really bad.
Out of all Futurama scenes this one destroyed me the most, probably because of the bad relationship with my mom
>Today's Christmas sermon is about family. What is family?
>Well, a lot of times, family is just a bunch of people who are forced to be together just because they came out of each other, but every so often...a miracle happens.
>A loving family, just like that—out of nowhere. Now, what causes this? A belief in God, a strong moral structure, blind luck? Who knows? Who cares? Ah, you're not gonna get any answers out of me.
>I'm just a puppet for the Big Guy. I don't write this stuff. The end. I mean, Amen. Nah, who am I kidding? The end.
I wouldn't call it pretentious, but it was melodramatic in an unbelievable manner. It was practically character assassination and I can hardly believe they expect us to believe they are good people acting that shitty to each other.
Leafie: A Hen Into the Wild. I recommend watching the original Korean version if you can, because the European release censored the ending and the dub is terrible.
Gotta admit, I never found this scene sad, and am sort annoyed when it's put on the top of dumb internet lists. Maybe it's just because I never really cared about lions.
On a lighter note, this redux is hilarious.
I think Waltz with Bashir, Moral Orel, Such a Beautiful Day, and a few others I'm not thinking of are some of the saddest movies/shows I've ever watched. The Wire, Schindler's List, and some others are also really sad at times.
The medium in which it's presented can affect you but I don't think either is particularly better at making you "feel sad."
I knew that Homer wasn't going to die, but somehow the show convinced me he was going to.
Then the tears flowed.
The Wind Rises made me cry harder than I have at any piece of media ever. Seriously, the tears wouldn't stop.
>The Wind Rises
Really? I thought the movie was good and it was kind of sad but it didn't affect me much at all. I thought that When Marnie was There and Princess Kaguya were way more sad than The Wind Rises.
The Wind Rises actually made me feel kind of bad about myself since I'm about to graduate with an electrical engineering degree and I really don't like the subject at all.
I dunno dude. Honestly, the whole romance subplot hit me waaaay harder than the main one. Maybe it's because of my
fiance, but the scene got me in a really weird place in my soul. The tears started when her lung ruptured.
>Look into my eyes, Mabel!
>You really think I'm a bad guy?
This entire scene I have to legit hold back tears. Soos declaring his mission, Dipper hurting Stan's face, Mabel crying and saying she want's to trust him but can't while the other characters realize how hurt she is, and the end with Mabel letting go and closing her eyes. This scene is by far my favorite in Gravity falls and in media period. The build-up within the episode and series really solidify it.
Im probably alone on this one, but goddamn this one line hit me so hard
Phil lived a long life and worked, and worked so hard the entire time to just produce a hero. All he wanted was to hear these 3 words, and when he got it I fucking cried
>Toy story 3
>all of them in the incinerator pit.
>"what do we do!?"
>buzz extends his hand
T-the fucking theater roof was leaking from a lot of rain and got on my face when that happend.
I watched the commentary and they pointed out (which I never noticed) the symmetry found in the hand gesture.
First time it happens is at the daycare, where Buzz extends his hand and Woody refuses. Second time is in the incinerator where Buzz extends his hand again and Woody accepts. Then during the last time, Woody extends his hand to Buzz when you think they're saying goodbye.
