30 Day Anime Challenge - Day 9: Saddest Scene Ever

[Spoiler Alert: if you're reading the Anime Challenge posts in this blog, you should assume that each one of them contains spoilers. Read at your own risk.]

This is a more difficult one to answer. It has just about the same difficulty as the most epic scene ever.

First Place: Cowboy Bebop finale


We go through the entire show and find out the real reason Spike is searching the solar system: he's looking for his long-lost love, Julia. When they finally find each other, she is murdered in cold blood by Spike's arch-nemesis' cronies. There's a touching display of love in her last moments, most of it unspoken but wonderfully connoted through the visuals.

Second Place: Metropolis ending


Tomorrow's prompt: "favorite slice of life anime"
