Anime fans are more than familiar with series that ended on depressing notes, and a recent poll in Japan asked viewers what they consider to be the most depressing finales across the medium, with several choices that might surprise more than a few fans. From the likes of Assassination Classroom to Puella Magi Madoka Magica to A Dog of Flanders, the list that was assembled by Goo Rankings gets a worthy breakdown of what anime enthusiasts believe to be some of the most tear-inducing franchises to ever be presented in the world of anime.
