Socrates in Love - Let me tell ya, I'm not easy to cry. There have been only 1 anime and 2 manga that have made cry and this is one of them. This was such a heart breaker. You know what happens in the end cause they tell you in the first chapter but still managed to make me cry. A surprising thing though is that I cried on the 1st re-read as well. Usually impact is lost when re-reading it.
I don't know about the saddest manga, but I know a few that made me cry. The first is Video Girl Ai, and always for the same reason, that is
when Natsumi dies T_T She was my favorite character in that story
The second is One Piece, Arlong saga, the famous Nami scene (where she's crying and begging Luffy to help her, I just love the raw emotion she's showing).
I know I have another title, but I can't remember it at the moment.
Immortal Rain made me cry; book 4 was just so sad! :( Fushigi Yugi also made me cry, and I think book 4 of that made me feel the saddest too.
I'm not sure about other manga that have made me feel sad... A.I. Love You 8 made me cry, but it's not really sad overall.
I havnt read many sad mangas, but one sad manga i have read is a 1 volume manga called Hoshi no Koe. Well worth a read if you like sad mangas.
Oh and one more manga i forgot to mention, is Bitter Virgin,drawn by the mangaka of Girls Saurus. Its a pretty tragic manga, which picks off right from the first chapter, so you get the feeling of sadness really early on, and it doesnt get any happier from there. Its 3 volumes atm and still ongoing.
1. Chrono Cruasde, the neding was really sad, but still, there couldn't have been any other ending (eccept the anime ending) or a happy ending, 'cause that would just ruined the whole series. (At least that's what I think)
I'm currently reading full moon, but missing volume 4 and 6, but damn, it's so sad, even when I've just read the 3 first volumes..
Confidential Confessions is just really depressing.. in a good way...
boku no hatsukoi wo kimi ni sasagu < probably the saddest thing i have ever read, there is only 5 chapters translated so far to my knowledge(?) and i am eating the angst up :_( it should turn out to be a really good one
I really hate sad stuff, so I've picked up a habit of unintentionally avoiding anything branded "sad". The only sad manga I've read was Ai Ren. Never again would I want to see something similar to this. Sadness is a strong emotion indeed and leaves even stronger impact. I bow in front of any seriously sad manga, because to evoke real sadness in reader, the manga must be really amazing, but still, sadness is not something I like to feel, so I'd rather avoid these kinds of mangas...
I don't recall the "saddest"one I've ever read, but I do recall sobbing over Forever Honey. It's the only one shot (yes, one shot) to have ever made me cry, and one of only 4 or 5 manga that garnered tears. It's not a depressing sad, but a bittersweet sad.
hmmm, the saddest manga that i've read so far was Chrno Crusade(because of its ending) and Rurouni Kenshin(that one arc about Kenshin's past)...yeah that's it...
Destroy. Destroy. Destroy. Slowly, completely, gently beyond comparison, cruelly to the point of numbness, I'll violate your life. That's right. The instant I rip off your limbs, tear open your rib and pull out your intestines, biting into your neck as you scream in agony, chewing through your eyes as I ignore your pleas for mercy and spreading your brains on the ground like butter!
