It’s July 9, or 7/9—put the pronunciations of those two numbers together in Japanese and you get “naku,” which means “to cry,” making July 9 “Crying Day.”
Not exactly a happy holiday, but a good excuse for anime news site Anime Anime to ask its readers: what are the series that made you cry the most?
Without further, ado, here are the top 10. Grab a tissue and read on:
10. Your Lie in April
9. A Place Further than the Universe
7. Sword Art Online
5. Assassination Classroom
4. Violet Evergarden
3. One Piece
All fairly recent titles! For a similar list with a bit more of an old-school feel, check out 2016’s list of most tragic endings. And on the manga side of things, we’ve got a list of Shonen Jump series that activated the waterworks.
