    What's the saddest you've seen? Lay it on me, I'll burn through everything mentioned this weekend.

    Angel Beats! and Sunday Without God immediately come to my mind. They had their moments for me.

    Alright, I've been told a looooot to watch Angel Beats and I've never heard of Sunday Without God. I'll knock them both out in a row.

    Would it be too cliche to recommend Aku no Hana? Anime is optional, people might be weirded out by the rotoscoping, but manga is fantastic.

    Most of my favorites.


    Especially anything related to Suehiro Maruo, the guro gawd.

    Most visual novels are more crushing than anime and manga for me. Kikokugai - The Cyber Slayer was probably the most intense.

    I've never read a visual novel before, anywhere in particular I should start? I could just jump into Kikokugai

    The most messed up anime/manga I've watched/read is Berserk. I'd consider Shin Sekai Yori to be the saddest, and it also has its fair share of messed up elements. If you're looking into macabre VNs there's also Higurashi. Haven't played it myself but it does have a reputation, presumably for good reason.

    I'm reading through Berserk right now and I've read through Higurashi c: Higurashi is pretty neat, but not as macabre as people might say ^^ I'll check out Shin Sekai Yori right now dood

    I second Shin Sekai Yori. I watched it while it was airing and it really fucked me up for a while that I couldn't even bring myself to rewatch it to fully understand everything.

    Hmm... for dark/fucked up VNs Kikokugai is probably the best along with Saya no Uta. Those two are both good starts since they have either no choices or very few and are short overall. Saya is probably a better start of the two. Heil Nitro+!

    Another one that isn't fucked up or dark but is good to start with Katawa Shoujo since it's freeware and a lot of people have played it. After that there isn't really any order you need to follow. This is what I've played if you want my recommendations: https://vndb.org/u133339/list

    Never quite got past the second episode, but Video Girl Ai is about one early twenty-something dude's struggle with loneliness in love and life. It's also got a pretty solid dub for a nineties show, so more power to ya if you're into that.

    Obligatory Clannad, or I guess anything made by Key in general.

    Oh for some reason I thought we were talking about light novels ^^ I've played through a bunch of visual novels. I'll download Kikokugai right now! I just finished Saya no Uta too. I'll go through your list (armless girl is best girl)

    Anime:
    Welcome to the NHK.
    Anohana.
    Angel Beats.
    Tokyo Godfather.
    Clannad + Afterstory.
    Grave of the fireflies.
    Aoi Bungaku.
    Grisaia no Kajitsu + Sequels/OVA.
    Little Busters.

    Also hear these anime can be quite the feels too, but I have not watched them yet:
    Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad.
    Wolfs Children.
    Kiznaiver.

    Also these shows while not nessecarily being sad in itself. Quite the tear jerking endings, without spoiling anything:
    Assasination Classroom
    Gosick
    Paprika

    Manga:
    Shamo
    Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin
    Dorohedoro
    Bradherley no Basha
    Metamorphis by Shindol (Hentai Doujin, heh. But legit made me dead inside for a whole week).

    I like sad stuff for whatever reason. Because feels makes me feel alive. These days, I don't watch a whole lot of it though. I try to avoid it. Being sad is sad you know. I tried rewatching Clannad, but haha. I couldn't. I do rewatch Welcome to the NHK a lot though, love it. My favorite show.

    Ah thanks for the post! Bring it on!!!! I haven't watched anything on here but I'm almost done with Assassination Classroom and I have Clannad installed c: If you have more you recommend watching, shoot
