air gear after i found out they canceled the show. but as for the anime itself probably oban star racers i teared up a little at the end of that series. getting attached to a series is both a blessing and a curse in that way.
Let's see; right now I am watching Clannad with my older sister (this is her second viewing of it, whilist this is my first). Got done with ep. 9 earlier and I was tearing. However, the only anime I do remember actually crying at was episode 23 of Fate/Zero (not saying why!).
Inuyasha is a emotional rollercoaster to say the least, Nuroku(the main villian) actively toys with peoples emotions throughout the entire series, and when you combine that with everyone's tragic back stories(which Nuroku was the cause of their tragic past as well), not to mention some complex relationships, it leeds to some of the saddest scenes/scenarios ever concieved of.
Then if there wasn't enough reason to tear over, the Final Act is made after many years without any hint that a ending to Inuyasha would ever be made. On top of that, the band who's credited for making more epic vocals then anyone else, whome became famous from the original Inuyasha release, Do As Infinity(whom since disbanded), reformed right when the Final Act was being made, and did a new song for the opening, which is arguably their best song made yet(damn talk about a we're back statement for both Inuyasha, and Do As Infinity). Then you can't help tearing when you watch the final act in its entirety, and realize that It's a perfect ending(The only perfect "official" ending to anything to date, It's still hard to believe such a ending exists, and for a great anime like Inuyasha is all the more unbelieveable. Logically you would imagine some small obscure anime noone even knows exists would've been more likely to get such a ending, it sure would've been easier, Inuyasha is a insanely complex anime which had a metric ton of plot wholes that needed to be filled when the original series dropped off, but as chance had it, fortune favored the ambitous this time around).
Only two made me cry, because I think Anime is total crap with very little exception and lacks in story and character development. And without story, emotional ties can't be created.
Anyway, Grave of the Fireflies and Arrietty -- the original Japanese version of Arrietty in particular, as (not really a spoiler) the beautiful song at the end was interrupted with some R&B crap for absolutely no reason in the English one, and it killed the mood.
I think the anime i cried most with was Clannad after story. Beautifull and sooo sad Also full moon wo sagashite was so sad. At first it looks childish, but from episode 17 it goes so much deeper. And wolf's rain, escpecialy the last 3 episodes.

07 Ghost. I don't ever (or at least don't usually) cry over tv shows/anime/books/ect., but that had me crying like a baby for multiple episodes, and I even cried when I rewatched them. Depending on my mood I still might tear up a little if I think about it.
