All right guys, I'm back again. Last time, I was simply looking for just a funny Slice of Life. This time, however, it's a tiny bit different.

I'm here for Slice of Life again, but I want one that's a real tearjerker. I just finished "Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai." It made me cry my eyes out - I can't lie about that.

If anyone knows a Slice of Life that will make me cry, I would greatly appreciate it! For some reason I just really love anime that make me cry.

Full Moon wo Sagashite, Romeo x Juliet, Les Miserables: Shoujo Cosette, Anne of Green Gables, and Chrno Crusade off the top of my head.

Clannad

That's about it for me...

Air (overshadowed by Clannad which was written by the same team, but it's 1/4 the episode count, and twice the tears)

Seconding both Clannad and Air (watched Clannad, am finishing Air tonight--love them both!) Also I teared up some with Fruits Basket (mostly toward the end), and I rarely cry when watching any type of show.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (Dusk Maiden of Amnesia) made me tear up at the main female lead's history. It's a pretty light anime/manga in general, but Yuuko's past was just too painful. :'(

You just don't like to read previous posts, huh? Also that spoiler tag is ridiculous.

Agreed. You sir are an idiot.

OT: I agree with Clannad/Clannad Afterstory.

I'll add Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 which is unfortunately LARGELY overlooked.

I triple or whatever Clannad, it's Afterstory(where the tears happen) and Code Geass(only last episode of R2 sadly)
Watched Angel Beats and Toradora but it didn't really made me cry. But since a lot of people are saying they are I'm guessing its worth a try for you.

AnoHana isn't Slice of Life.

I could probably list a bunch more, but I'll say:

Angelic Layer
Aria the Animation and its sequels (this actually is SoL)
A Little Snow Fairy Sugar
Fafner
Figure 17
Fruits Basket
Twin Spica
Hantsuki
Iriya's Sky, Summer of UFOs
Kaleido Star
Kannazuki no Miko
Kokoro Connect
Mahoromatic
Mushishi
Please Teacher
Listen to me, Girls, I'm Your Father!
Popotan (don't let the ecchi fool you)
SaiKano
Shigofumi
Toradora
Wolf's Rain
Zettai Shounen

Sorry that I didn't reply earlier, everyone! My internet decided to just screw up after I posted this.

Thanks for all your suggestions! :D

Wolf's Rain and Grave of the Fireflies by far. Clannad AS, Kanon, Angel Beats, Air and Anohana are all fantastic animes, but nothing comes close to how depressing these two animes are.
