Well the best example i can give was after i watched Barefoot Gen. Though alot of people haven't seen it so most of you probably had a similar experience with Grave of The Fire Flies. Anyway, after I watched it...I just couldn't think. All the gears were turning but nothing was happening. I still dont know how i feel about it. I cant really say it was a good "story" because it wasnt a story, that all happened to the creator. what the hell should i rate it? "Meh, sorry. All that tragic shit that happened in your life isnt interesting enough, you get a 7."

I'd give it a 10 just because of how emotional and thought provoking it was. Half an hour of wonderful character development and fun times come crumblin' down when the nuke gets dropped. Seeing half burn people with their eyes hanging out of their heads is pretty fuckin' disturbing btw.

I won't lie, I may be a man, but my heart isn't made of stone. There have been a few anime that have made me shed tears before. OH! OH! HOW THIS SHIT MADE ME CRY!

ANYWAY, not necessarily to the extent I had, But, has anyone ever felt like this after watching an anime?

Yes, Spiral made that. It was like: The whole anime is bad at an mystery, and at the end...



So yes it sucks.

There's several anime that have that effect. It's intentional. EoE is the perfect example.
Ooo, what a lovely tea party.

The ending of Texhnolyze. Though, I don't mean that in a bad way. I'm pretty sure that this was absolutely the intention of the show and, even if it somehow wasn't, I still consider my feelings of "emptiness" during the show as a good thing. Really hard for me to explain, though.

School days, as bad an anime as it is, it toyed with my emotions to no end. Felt like complete shit afterwards and had that empty feeling.
Now and then, here and there and Phantom didn't quite get there but certainly left an impression.
And when I finished Planetes. But that was a different kind of empty. It was that shock like "omg I'm never ever going to see anything as good as this ever again".

When I finished Code Geass, Death Note, Fate/Zero, Steins;Gate, FMAB (of course) End of Evangelion are some good examples.
If it's any sort of memorable book, anime or television series it'll leave me feeling empty... horrible feeling. I think that one of the reasons that the Big 3 are so popular today is because they never seem to end, therefore the fans never get that empty feeling. They'll all end someday though; it's only a matter of time.

Anytime an anime ends with the protagonist/multiple characters dying, odds are you will feel empty in some way at the end.

Usually anime that ended in tragedy or somewhere along the series - Code Geass, Angel Beats, most recently Shinsekai Yori. I feel like I need something enjoyable in place of the time spent watching those anime.

Kara no Kyoukai did leave me feeling empty while watching it. I can't really describe why but it just did. The name is pretty apt though as the literal translation is The Boundary of Emptiness.
Also I will agree with The End of Evangelion.

I guess for me 5cm made me feel like that, mostly because of how much I can relate to the story and what happened in that movie...

I'm absolutely not surprised at all to see EoE in this thread. But, as strange as it may sound and considering what was happening during the ending, I actually consider the ending somewhat positive. I don't know, it's just the feeling I got. Like there was hope...or something. The rest of the movie was very depressing, though.

Yes it was indescribable, still 10/10 how many other shows can do that to you?

It could have been worse.
I guess.
Yeah couldn't have been that much worse, but then again compared to the rest of the film the ending was... quite nice actually.

A lot of Psychological animes made me feel the same way, Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum, NGE, Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei, but The End of Evangelion wasn't that great for me. So I gave it 8/10, which is less than what I gave for all the others.

Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei - is another 10 for me

I felt Mawaru Penguindrum's ending was very forced and cliche it didn't have the same effect on me at all hence I gave that an 8/10 -still it was a very refreshing show, very quirky at times and I loved it.

Utena I haven't seen

Hyouka.

Fuck you ending. Fuck you. All that build up...


Also Tari Tari.

Both are 'empty in a negative' way. Not a empty in a mindfuck or good way.

Although the feeling they give after you watch it may not be good, I love psychological animes :)

And rather than cliche (Mawaru) I think the end fit the director's style, since it was similar to the end of Utena.

Agreeing with Texhnolyze here. However, recently....NGE feels like it's eating away at me over the past few days. Becoming a little too obsessed with it, and it's sorta making me descend into gloominess...I blame Anno's frequent inclusion of 'stay still' scenes. Too much time there for me to go into deep thought mode during the watch...

Just this once, I'll fulfill whatever your wish is.

Edit: As a disclaimer it's been around 3 or so years since I've seen EoE specifically, so who knows what I'll take from it whenever I re-watch it. These are my hazy thoughts from then.

When I finished Tantei Gakuen Q, I felt empty. I thought it possibly couldn't have ended. Then the harsh reality struck. I really wanted to see the full-blown battle between DDS and Meose/Pluto.

Yes yes and that ending, with the spilled coffee. I would read the manga but I don't think it's fully translated.
