They're the best. I like it when my favorite anime makes me suffer.

Why should I avoid an anime because it's emotional? I don't get it.
If the animes ending makes me cry that just proves that the anime has succeeded in making the watcher feel more attached to the series or characters. In my eyes making me cry at the ending is better than not.

Agreed. I'm constantly looking for anime which can make me cry because of the same reason. There were only a few anime which made me cry and the ones that did usually leave me with big impression and go to my favorites.

Yes since I enjoy dark shows in general. And sad endings dont really bug be and often times they properly end the story with sad endings. But there are sad endings that weaken shows. And sometimes it looks like there will be a sad ending but then the ending becomes happy. If you want to see a good example watch How Not To Summon A Demonlord.

I can't think off the top of my head of anime I've watched that had clear-cut sad endings, to be honest. Not like I actively avoid them, I just read the synopsis and look at the tags usually, so "sad ending" is hardly something I'll know about from the get go.

What would be the best "sad ending" anime out there?

- i dont watch ever watch angel beats. i just watch some.. uhhhhh.. what was is it? conspiracy? complication? ahhh right compilation..
i've watch some compilation video about this anime like there is no another anime to be compilated... after watch a ton of compilation about how funny angel beats was... there is compilation how kanade and yui dies in the end... so i discouraged to watch this anime... it just like drink a fine taste of wine but in the end you'll get drunk and fall.
No idea about the others but angel beats is not sad. Or rather, it could be if the characters were fully fleshed out but I watched the ending (appallingly inconsistent as it is) and my whole reaction was "meh-mkay", not something to start crying for days for, all in all.

Only if the sadness has meaning. Misery for the sake of just having it included is annoying, or if the meaning could have been there without the tragedy (ex. Shigatsu)

When I start watching an anime, I try to avoid all spoilers. Thus 90% of the time I know nothing about the ending. I always cry my eyes out when the ending is sad, though. I used to get mad or really upset, but I realized that a sad ending is much more realistic than happy ones. So it doesn't bother me as long as it wraps up the story in a good way.

nothing I love more than a bittersweet ending. Afterall, the fact that something is ending at all is sort of bittersweet anyways

People actually tend to give bonus mark for sad ending.
Like without it, they'd give an 8, and with sad emo / death scene, they bump it to 9 if it makes them cry. People love emotional stuff.

I won't know if an anime has a sad ending until I watch the ending, so obviously yes.

Yes. Lots and lots of good anime have bittersweet endings. It´s normal and also part of everyone´s life. Anime aren´t just flowers and candy. The sad ones can be frustrating, but... Oh, well. We gotta know the ending.

What got me into anime was your lie in April. I was like damn this was good but also pretty sad. I didn't cry and thought that I would never cry watching an anime. After I watched that I googled " best saddest anime" and found clannad. Nearly made it until the end before I started crying haha.

Sad anime are my favourite type of anime.

Not really, I tend to put them on my On-Hold list for as long as I could care. It feels terrible watching endings, let alone sad ones. Not for me.

Yeah but it's not easy if that's your favourite character dying for example

I usually avoid them but sometimes i do feel an urge. Its very rare though, and when it is, i go for Shinkai's movies.

I am specifically searching for those with sad endings. They are my favorites. Even the strongest dramas never managed to make me shed a single tear yet the drama is the genre I love more than any other.

I'm depressed enough. So sad Anime are kinda relaxing and have potential to pour out feelings. (although it's extremely rare when something actually manages to make me teary....)

So yeah.. dark and sad Anime are kinda my jam if done right. But eh.. I watch pretty much any genre.. although do avoid few. (meaning watch rarely)

If its good I don't see why not. Sad ending in a good anime is better than a good ending in a crap anime.

Yes because I’m not overly emotional when watching sad scenes in anime.

I don’t care whether an ending is sad or happy. What I want is a good ending that suits the series and is conclusive (ie everybody gets closure).

Yes as it's just a show, a cartoon show. Though some endings can be quite sad I normally get over them within a day/

I love and live for the drama, but maybe I'm just an emotional masochist too, I dunno.
Although I rarely shed tears, they strongly hit me.

This. Emotions are part of the experience.

yes but I don't like endings that turn the entire show into a waste like Chrono Crusade.

I love them although End of Evangelion left me in a stupor for like 2 weeks. i could handle Devilman, Clannad, and berserk, but for whatever reason it just fucked me up.

I think avoiding sad ending is pretty much okay as the life is not much merrier,But watching sad ending anime kinda makes you strong and tells you how to go through those unpleasant moments

At one point I used to be, but that was before the depression kicked in lol. Nowadays I don't think I'd willingly put myself through a misery fest series if I didn't know there was some sort of positive payoff or sense of hope. That was how I was able to get through the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter, because as devastating as it was, there were moments to breathe and turning points.

In that same fashion, Clannad has been one of my favorite anime series, but I've only ever watched the second season to its completion once. Granted, I know how it goes and I know that there is a silver lining, but it's that kind of back to back devastation that really messed me up when I was supposed to be focusing on a writing exam, oops.

So short answer is I'm capable, but I try to avoid it if I know it's going to be a guaranteed depression rollercoaster.

If I watched Your Lie in April, I can watch any anime.
If I cry that means this anime touched me, and I'm willing to watch it for the sake of see a good anime

I don't mind the sad ending as long as it is not bad and feels forced. But I really prefer happy endings to sad ones.

Sad endings tend to leave a more lasting impression on me. Perhaps I might even sit still for a minute to process it. Love when an anime can do that.

If the story itself is something awesome, then yes, i can, even if they bring on the water works.

I watch them mostly because I don't know the ending before hand nor do I want to. Plus I don't mind them.

I have in the past and I still am. At times I'm spoiled for the plot and know that it ends badly, I'd still watch the anime to see what the fuss is, especially if the bad ending is infamous for whatever the reason. It may not be fun, nor will it be guaranteed to have proper closure, but I'd at least have a reason to watch something bright and cheerful right after.

Well, in life I'm an excessively optimistic guy, so I'm almost never sad. Anime with sad scenes is a way for me to experience this feeling in the comfort of my home while I'm totally fine.
