Depressing shows.....

Good day people!!!

I don't know if there is another thread similar to this one or if there was, because I'm a newbie and all.

I just like to ask if anyone can recommend a real depressing anime movie, series and the like that makes you ponder on life's tragedies and such.

I've already seen Perfect Blue, Kite and Grave of the Fireflies and those movies were really disturbing and depressing at the same time.

Please do help me... I really need to watch something unconventional for a change.

    Watch Kanon... until episode 12 only.... well, ok 13th until the last 10 minutes of the show. ^_^;

    You can also try Saikano.

    You can try Raxephon until the last 5 minutes of the show too.

    Or Evangelion, the two movies only.

    Every episode of Saikano is depressing. I also would like to suggest X TV.
  • The last movie of Eva was disturbing, especially with Asuka saying, "I feel sick," at the end of it...

    Is Saikano the one that has Chise, Shuji, and a war? I've read a review and it says that it is a sad series. Just as sad as Now and then, here and there?:(

  • teppeiteppei AnimeReactor crew PExer
    -grave of fireflies [prolly the best anime that i don't intend to watch anymore coz of too much sadness in the story]
    -boys be... the mood alone [especially when the narrator[main character] is talking] is depressing, lots of figures of speech in his lines. plus the story itself... kinda...
    -saikano... just like somebody previously said, every episode is quite depressing
    -kimagure orange road's first movie... the original ending... [dang... it made me cry :`(( ]--- not for brokenhearted ppl
