I want the saddest possible anime EVER!

Don't say Elfen Lied btw..I already have it on my HDD and that's not the genre I'm talking about..

I want sad romance/dramas kind of like the end of Fruits Basket sad..(shit I cried buckets full)

How bout it :)

HawthorneKitty recommendation is seconded! Those are really good stuff right there. Especially the Clannad series, and ef series.
I'll add on to that though:

Bokura ga Ita
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora
Binbou Shimai Monogatari (haven't seen it, but I heard it really makes you cry.)

That is exactly what i wanted to say...
Uhm you could add ef - a tale of melodies which is the sequel to ef - a tale of melodies. Voices of a distant stars is sad, It's a 20 minute movie and i don't think it was very good although the story of it was sad...
あらあら。。。^^

No idea about Fruits Basket, but in addition to Air, I would recommend Saikano. Don't let the imagery of war fool you, its primarily a love story. A very painful and sad love story.

Not the saddest ever, but brought tears to my eyes - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I also recommend Millennium Actress.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
It takes a while for the really sad events to surface, but when they do, they hit so much more forcefully than anything else, because you've gotten to know the characters so well and better yet, it is all presented so realistically and is not as extremely exaggerated as most other Baaaw sequences tend to be in more melodramatic anime.

All of this I second. And I agree with triseke. Grave of the Fireflies makes me tear up just thinking about it.

Anything made by Makoto Shinkai.

I recommend you the short "La Maison en Petits Cubes" which is very sad but beautiful.

It seems like Grave of the Fireflies is getting less and less popular. It used to be that every other post in a request like this would mention it.
This is a serious post. You're not allowed to delete it.

Honey & Clover. Don't even bother with what everyone else is saying, especially a key series.

haha, rise up and dominate the world, 0.3% unwatchable clannad minority! Strange you enjoyed the old clannad movie though. If your just trolling it probably would be more effective to rate LoGH a 1 here. :D Definitely get more responses.

Agreed!

Unfortunately everything i thought of has been mentioned, so i'm just here to spam.

Because the movie was well done. It has none of that Kyoani fluff, and is just straight up Tomoya and Nagisa. The Clannad series is filled with useless side character arcs that have no bearing on the story at all. It gets serious like half way through After Story, and I was basically through with the series by then.

I only troll Clannad because I think it's awful, and it's fans need to WATCH MOAR ANAMAY instead of declaring it..... the best everything.

Clannad ~Afterstory~
