The end of Parakiss made me and my friend cry. I think it's the only time I've ever cried reading a comic. I can only name a couple of times a movie has made me cry.

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.

Pita Ten. Don't let the cutesy premise fool you. The final quarter of it as swimming in heart-wrenching tragedy. The ending is one of the most bittersweet I've ever come across.

Chrono Crusade. It was just really sad. I cried alot.
And I also felt really sad in Full Moon Wo Sagashite. That manga was so sad, much sadder than the anime.

For me, it would be Confidential Confessions. That series definitely made me cry.

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!

Totally agreeing here. Oh god, and the IRL movie captured it perfectly. I cried for days after reading and watching, ugh.

I think I saw someone else post this one already, but Socrates in Love.
It was a really touching story about young love and death. Not for the emotionally unstable. =]

Earthian was pretty sad to me; the whole last volume made me cringe just so that I wouldn't cry. And when I say last, I mean the last volume with Chihaya and Kagetsuya, not the extra. Though, that made me want to cry too. Geez, even the side stories of Earthian are depressing ;_;

Wish was happy-sad. I dunno. One part of me thinks "Yay! They're together ... sort of ..." then the other part goes "What the hell?! He friggin died!" =/ But yeah, it did make me want to cry. But I didn't.

Loveless so far, is a bit of a sad read. You just feel for the characters so much, even characters you thought you would hate like Yuiko or Yayoi or the Zeros. Ritsuka, too D=

Boys Next Door ... I'm not so sure what to say about this one, but it DEFINITELY wasn't happy. The entire manga had this sort of eerily sad, almost sadistic air to it that made it hard to believe what was happening in the manga. They show you the ending at the beginning, and it's still ... shockingly bittersweet. Maybe it was the art that made it so masochistic, since Kaori Yuki has a skill with gothic manga.

A lot of people are putting Absolute Boyfriend, but honestly, I thought it was fine. I mean, how ELSE would it have ended? Night just wanted Riiko to be happy and Soshi just wanted to be with Riiko, while Riiko just wanted for both of them to be happy with her decision to be with Night. In the end, it was truly the only way.

The Ending of Death Note was really sad to me. I cried when Kira/Light Yagami was dying and I cried for a couple more minutes after he died T_T.

Certain parts of Berserk still make me sob, and I remember Fruits Basket really having an effect on me at the time. Lament of the Lamb was another one, but that was just depressing the entire time. :/

Boys Next Door - I agree with iLyv above, the whole vibe was just so sad. The first manga I've read to ever move me to tears.

Socrates in Love - is another really really sad one.
