i watched this show years ago and this clip still pops into my head every now and then.also webm general if things get too heavy
>>19108798someone on the story bored team came up with this and everyone agreed with it and put it in the anime.
>>19108798The secret of Tiphares' citizens in Alita gave me a bit of existential dread, or at least when Desty Nova explains it to Ido.
>>19108798>that scene in Ideon when Cosmo was in the pitch blackness of his mech in the middle of an intense battle and was screaming for someone to save him. Later we see that he has a clear case of shell shock from that.Always struck me as a crazy thing to show in a childrens cartoon about a giant toy robot. Will probably be one of the most memorable moments from an anime to me. Also pic related.
>>19108798That one Zaku pilot who falls with the Gundam through the Earth's upper atmosphere and is burned alive. Just the death alone is haunting, but what makes it worse is Char is legitimately regretful at being unable to recover the pilot but reassures the pilot that his sacrifice at least wont be in vain. Of course, the Gundam then takes out its magic blanket and survives just fine.
Al imagining the nuke in 0080 is pretty strong, arguably moreso than the iconic ending
This show was just exceptionally cruel to its protagonist...
>>19108944Ah, Tekkaman Blade, the show built on "how hard can we kick a man when he's down?" The answer is always "harder than that".
>>19108798That one woman who dies from an ejected bullet case falling on her head. I think Tomino is very good at portraying the banality of tragedy.
>>19108798When Fraw's family gets blown up to pieces right behind her, she is ok in like 5 minutes
>>19109115the power of the slap, it seems
>>19108944>>19108968>Aki suddenly starts desperately praying for D-boys sake and the burden he carried
>>19108798He just wanted to hug a loli before he died
>>19109006the entire colony fight in f91 was terrifying, people got crushed by fallen ms, got sucked into vacuum (saw a goddamn dogs and cows too), that black kid got his neck destroyed after he slam the wall
>>19108798Kamille’s mom dying. I’ve found the idea of dying in the vacuum of space deeply disturbing and terrifying since I was a kid, though I haven’t really thought about the subject in years. Starting on Zeta last week reminded me of those thoughts though, the terror feels even more intense if I don’t imagine myself dying in space, but instead being stuck in a position where I can only watch someone I love die that gruesome death
>>19108864The moment when the Ganda Rowa appears just after Bes tells Cosmo of the bad news.Probably the best Tomino scene of all time.
>>19108798The end of episode 23 got me bad. Lockon leaving the cockpit and Haro calling after him because he knows he won't come back and Setsuna of all people crying as he watches Lockon die. That scene after where Exia is holding the sniping console is the worst
>>19109175>Then fucks the retard out of his system.He won at the end.
>>19109992Fucking this. That scene has stuck with me for over a decade. Nobody does it like Tomino.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTI2A_KmGU4&feature=youtu.be&t=110
>>19108798>You don't have to fight!
>>19109953i felt sorry for kamille's mother, certainly more sorry than i felt for his dad. she just got thrown out in space to die, at least franklin bidan did something worth killing him for.
In Fafner Exodus, Hiroto's dad getting to see what little was left of his boy and still recognizing it was one of the most heartbreaking moments in the franchise.
>>19108798Gunbuster episode 6I fucking cried my eyes out
>>19111216>That moment when it cuts back to Kimiko on Earth middle-aged, with a teenage daughter and still praying for Noriko on TanbataTime dilation is such a fucked concept.
>Be treated like shit by everyone else>Fall in love with a slave girl who thinks the world of you, only to see her mistreated constantly and can’t do anything about it>Dream about being her hero, and know defeating Metalder will bring him everything he ever wanted, and feel worthy of the slave girl’s love>Keep getting betrayed by his fellow soldiers but still manages his showdown with Metalder>Fucking dies, leaving behind the slave girl pregnant with their childFuck man, I couldn’t with that episode.
>>19111531yeah, this honestly hurt more than the ending. along the same lines is pic relatedKOICHIIIIIIII~
>>19111614The human bombs and the child kamikaze attack ending made this one of the most fucked up mecha shows out there.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkSmqP61vAQWhen this kicks in
>>19108798Like what the fuck man, at least try to make a normal tourniquet. Why did you do this to me.
>>19108798It probably barely counts as /m/, but Outlaw StarThe cat episode
>>19111614I thought the human bomb thing was overrated until I got to this scene
>>19111657Can't tourniquet a femoral artery wound by yourself. The blood pressure drop would make you delirious or just black you out in about 5-15 seconds, and you'd be past the point of help in about 30-45. Even if you got a wound like that in an ER already prepped on the operating table, youd be looking at 50/50 odds.
>>19111711>Can't tourniquet a femoral artery wound by yourself.My buddy put one on one handed when an AK round turned his left elbow into hamburger meat.
>>19111754Femoral artery isn't in your arm dingus. The Brachial you could probably swing it. But the a punctured femoral is a whole other bag of worms. You'd need to summon the strength to pinch down the entire thigh and tie it off while you're fading fast as shit.
>>19108817What is this, statutory rape for ants?
Ryuki's second last episode's ending.It's something that I think about pretty regularly.
>>19111825You can use a CAT to to stop a bleeding femoral artery as long as you're not somekind of obese fuck and they can't wrap the strap around your thigh. Depending on the location of the injury you may need more than 1. Would post pics but I don't want a ban.
>>19111886>Introducing your mom to your girlfriend.
>>19109953You should be glad then, she didn't die to the vacuum of space, she died instantly from machine gun fire and a chunk of her remains were still on the MK-II's hand. The entire sequence is haunting when you put yourself in Camille's shoes, his mom died fast, but the memory of his mother dying right in front of his eyes as her body explodes into a red mist would haunt anyone forever.
>>19111914Man, no wonder he was supposed to side with Neo Zeon in one of the earlier CCA's drafts.
>>19111904I was so done with Shinji as a character and Ryuki as a story by that point I really couldn't feel anything but relief that he was out of the plot. I get the idea of wanting to keep the riders from killing each other but there was no excuse for someone like Asakura.
>>19111886>Dont you look away, Shahkti. This is your fucking fault.
But when Pinnochio became human, was he really happier that way?
>>19108864That episode was fucked. I remember the shriek of the lady commander when Cosmo was trying to pull her out of the debris. For me it would be the end the human bomb camp episode in Zambot 3. When the short guy from Kousuki's gang gets cold feet after looking cool and calls for his mom and cries that he doesn't want to die. Then he does.
this entire sequence
>>19111618Jesus I've never felt so bad for a simple toei MOTW before, metelder was especially heavy towards the villains like the one who had his last stand with a bunch of goons and was Impailed on a tree
https://youtu.be/DCoHdkaGnpUI suppose it's not as gory as some of the other things anons have posted, but this scene fucks me up man.
>>19111618>>19112288Big Wayne's episode also got me. Always loved the "old soldier has one last fight" episode and Metalder nails it with his.
Toei Getter could get surprisingly fucked up even if it was tamer than the manga. I know the Dinosaur Empire mooks are disposable but then there's "sealing them in a room with a gas leak to save your own hide while they beg to be let out."
>>19112288The first half of Metalder is possibly some of the best Toku has to offer. It takes an extremely introspective look into the MOTWs, and makes them almost victims of fate. It really pulls some twists and turns on you that show how unfortunately Metalder’s battle is.
The episode itself was a mood whiplash compared to the rest of the show, but this scene stands out for me.
>>19109933Yeh that first 30 or so minutes is some of the best I've seen in anime, ever. Shame the rest of the movie sucks ass
>>19111687What's this from?
>>19112813Quake 4. That's POV sequence where you have no control and you watch yourself get turned into a cyborg.
>>19112798IIRC it's 12+ episodes of content crammed into a short movie, so yeah.
>>19112315Based Ace Combat bro, can't wait yo play 4.For me actually, is Neucom ending. There was something ominous and chilling about the final messages that Cynthia left to Fiona.And that final scene, where fiona is left either laughing or crying before the screen turns off, is haunting
>>19108968>d-boy's brain is so damaged he can't even recognise or reply to pegas
>>19111614Holy shit, that's the Meta Knight ending theme. Listen to the piano melody
>>19111634You just reminded me Kappei's little girlfriend was turned into a human bomb too and abruptly dies And she's one of the few people who actually support him. This show really doesn't let up. It's crazy how they let something this cruel air as a kid's show
>>19111917that's misinformation, please stop spreading it
>>19115189I've been looking for any info on it's production but the most I can get is Tomino: I killed them kids for the shock factor! I'm interested in why it was only 23 episodes while Daitarn 3 lasted to 40. The show itself seemed like a flex of Sunrise's creative muscles as they tried to show what they could do on their own more than a cohesive product. A few things in Zambot feel kind of loose and awkward if you think about it too much (Why is Planet Beal such a punk bitch that they couldn't fight off the Gaizock? If it's because they fought a larger Gaizock force before, is Kappei going to have to do this shit again? How did they get everyone into those sleeping capsules that one episode? If Zambot loses a limb, who fixes it? Do they have the material? What exactly tipped them off that the Gaizock are coming? Does the government have Zambots now? Are they going to start Zambot wars? Is the dog really a robot? Is it the co-pilot? Who puts a cockpit in a foot?) None of that really matters though cause at the end of the day they told an interesting story and saw what boundaries they could push while they got their footing making their own things. There's some interviews in here but I have no idea if it's just fluff or if they say anything of note because of my lack of moon speak. https://nyaa.si/view/1049327
>>19108798Goddamn the way he shielded that girl was fucking admirable as fuck.
>>19108798What's the source on this?
>>19117094SDF MacrossYou should check it out.
>>19117108Oh, I've only watched Do You Remember Love?I need to go back and watch the original series. Thanks!
>>19108798the scene where Van absolutely butchers the Dragonslayers. It's really pretty staggering just how out of their depth they wind up being after being pretty legitimate threats for as long as they were.
You now remember that one LOGH episode where they decided to fill the entire show's gore quota.
>>19114293That scene in the 5 minute Missing Link OVA where Aki is riding D-Boy's brain damaged dick and hysterically crying was peak suffering.
>>19110446i remember watching this on christmas, crying my fucking eyes out in my room at night while my parents were asleep
>>19114293>that bit where d-boy just forgets who pegas is>he later tries to transform, but can't find his crystal and starts freaking out
>>19117126>Production gets a budget spike.>Spend it on graphic violence.Haunted? I was glad that moment happened
>>19108798Everytime I watch the sunset.
I don't know what it was but I remember seeing a clip from an old anime where there's a space battle. People are fighting on a space ship and this kid turns and and runs to get something and a stray laser gets him right in the head and makes him explode. I've never been able to find out what that show was.
>>19118899Show's called Ideon, I think that scene is from the movies but I'm not sure.
>>19118899Was it this one?
Thanks! It's been driving me nuts that I couldn't find it and starting to think I dreamed it up.
That was it exactly.
>>19118884What a terrible MC.
<-- Kidou Keiji JIBAN, episode 34.I really like the craziness of the 80's (witches being stabed, killer Santas, possessed kids etc), but I must admit this episode of Jiban was pure unnecessary torture porn for kids... Simply the most violent episode made for a toku: hero x 3 powered up villains. Result? Beaten to death, arm ripped, chest pierced, the end. Sadomaso, enjoyment zero and lazy writing.Of course he got ressurected in episode 35 and fucked all of them later, but... that previous episode was brain dead, even for the edgy 80's.>>19111687That scene was pure cringe and retarded... Grotesque at best. Looks like some game designers are schizos.
I know people can't take pic related serious, but I think it was trash. Not just for the viollence, but also for the total absence of hope. 100% anti-climax, just "edgy" shit."...According to series writer Mari Okada, in all the other drafts for the ending director Tatsuyuki Nagai wanted every single named character to be killed off. Mari Okada and other staff members protested the idea and had the ending rewritten as a result..."These writers know how to screw things badly.
>>19118981So Okada is part of the reason IBO wasn't worse?
>>19109115No time to mourn.
>>19111923Shinji was an idealistic idiot. But his heart was pure & the only one truly worthy of being a Kamen Rider.
>>19118981IBO's last stand is a dying moment of hyperip out half the context and you have fucking great scene, but then the fact you have to remove context to enjoy it supports how trash it wasAt the very least, Iok got fucked.
>>19109125I have a theory on UC: If you Bright Slapped half of these idiots, UC would be saved.
>>19112270This one was super fucked up
>>19118944He's the only thing keeping it from being nihilistic torture porn
That episode of Nadia where Jean befriends the dude who has to fix the gas leak in the Nautilus and hears him dying the whole time
>>19119674What the fuck is that from?
>>19119686SEED's final arc. The leader of !Zeon fires a fuckhueg microwave weapon against the !Feddie base on the moon.
>>19119686>He hasn't watched Gundam SEEDLucky you. It's a waste of time.Anyway, that's the GENESIS system, which is a microwave emission out of a nuclear explosion turned into a beam. First, water-based bodies pop, then there's electric damage to systems and lastly, the strength of the ray makes the rest blow up. Said scene happens in the last episodes.
>>19119706>>19119717That jesus was able to surviveyeah i know they said it wasn't at full power when he got hit buy it but still
>>19118899It's actually a little girl.
>>19119720The protection of the Holy Spirit is that strong.Remember when he withstood another GUNDAM detonating at point-blank, with his cockpit wide open and his unconscious body was spirited away into ZAFT's capital colony in a matter of hours?Yeah, I didn't watch the remaster. But you know it's ridiculous either way.
>>19119544amuro's slaps work. bright's slaps do jack shit and only make things worse
>>19119720Kira was never hit by the GENESIS beam.
>>19118964>That scene was pure cringe and retarded... Grotesque at bestJesus grow up you little pussy
>>19111185For me it was that and Mamoru's mother crying over his bloody, mangled cockpit.
>>19119679Geez that looks painful
>>19111923Imagine supporting the death penalty. It's time to grow up and move to a civilized country, anon.Double emphasis on the grow up part, if you aren't able to handle Shinji being the best part of Ryuki.
>>19119643It was still nihilistic torture porn, his personality just made everything worse.
This scene was so fucking hilarious yet sad at the same time.
>>19111618i could tell Metalder was hit different back then, the mc sucked fighting and lost on his very first battle and then began questioning his own existence for 10 episodes.such a flex way to sell kids toys
>>19120320That was back when Toku wasn’t just one giant toy commercial quality-wise, and the quality of the show actually mattered. Metalder took a very different approach by having the hero not only fight one of the big bads in his first match, but lose, and from there put a lot of emphasis on the villains, their culture as a society, and the individuals MOTWs.Unfortunately the second half becomes a lot more standard, but even then we got some great stuff like Valsky being the final general fight and fighting for his whole empire.
>>19120092>Start playing as a chad soldier.>Got captured.>Got fucked into a shitty cyborg during some non playable trashy cutscene.>Need to play the rest of the game as a frankenstein because edgy gamedev think it's "cool" been a cyberfreak Stroggo.LOL.
>>19108798>ITT: /m/oments that haunt youPic.
>>19120139Considering all the blood it's obviously not meant to be pleasurable.
>>19120307Based Tomino.>You want fanservice? Here... now fuck off.>>19120718>25 points more in both armor and health.>Can use Stroyent dispensers.>Can go sanic fast and properly circle-strafe.> Can understand the panels and Strogg language.>You can use the teleportation devices.>Security lasers don't cut you in half.Weak bait.Also, the scene is excessive, yes, but I don't see you complaining about later sections like the waste disposal area.I personally like the whole Quake 4 athmosphere.
I remember reading that Gen Urobuchi was traumatized by one of the deaths in Zeta and that's why all his works are so bleak
Despite not liking the movie, Gundam NT's ending was horribly depressing. Here's Jona, who's lost his family and almost everyone he cared about, then later on has the girl he loves taken. Later learns that his only remaining friend betrayed them and is the cause of his crush's suffering and eventual death... only for Jona to learn his crush knew ALL ALONG what would happen and allowed all these shitty things to happen to all three of them just so they could prevent the NZ II from destroying the planet. This leads to Michele dying, leaving Jona completely alone. Jona has dedicated most of his life trying to find Rita, and has learned he can become a cool space ghost with some psycoframe, but nope! Rita cock blocks him for some reason. After all this shit has him wondering if he should just kill himself, Banagher gives the worst pep talk ever to convince him to keep on living.To sum it up, he was manipulated for most of his life by his friends, those friends get to become super ghosts while he's left alone and shattered.
>>19119557Oh fuck me that fucked me up.
>>19119557Even after more than a decade, I can still hear the screams.
>>19126496Yeah, it got quite a few people.
>>19118905You are correct. You should go watch Ideon by the way, I found it rather enjoyable.
>>19111908Anon, the femoral artery rivals the carotid in size. It's not about "pushing through" it's about how long can your brain function without oxigen supply at that point.
i honestly don't remember that much of Bokurano anymore, but this specific one still sticks with me
>>19119557whats this from?
>>19126735Every episode anon. There were times, where shit got so sad, you couldn't feel bad anymore, but then, SOMEHOW, things got even worse. And the entire Will the sister die actually works to build up tension because of the sheer amount of Murphy's Law present in the show.
>>19126735Man, FUCK Dung Beetle for this one in particular.
>>19119644This.The fact that he tried to act calm and die a brave hero, but gave in to his fear and panicked in the last few seconds of his life really drove that scene into my mind.
I watched Giant Gorg last year and there's a part towards the end that's really sobering Basically the muscle man of the group, a mercenary known only as 'The Skipper' who has been helping the main character uncover the secrets of the island the story takes place on sells everyone out. There's nothing noble about it he did it all for the money and you can see it coming a mile away but I honestly hoped he would soften up around the kids. Then he gets caught and is thrown in the brig by the villains of the story and just waits for his execution because the money seemed to be for someone else. On top of this the collective governments of the world decide to nuke the island because of the aliens and giant robots on it so the series last episodes have these really sobering shots of the bad guys and rebels kind of just palling around since they all realize they are going to die and they can't leave the island anyways. It was really sobering to watch as guys just drove buggies around the military installations and drank themselves into a stupor waiting for the end
Goodnight, sweet prince
>/m/oments that haunt youWell, hope this doesn't mean only gruseome stuff.
>>19126735For me, it's the sniping mecha in Hawaii;_;7
>>19120139>>19121844the blood is because they also used them as meat shields
>>19128011It's been years, but it still hurts.
>>19119679This looks like a warcrime
>>19111216honestly the entire implication of everything in the ending fucks me up on the inside and it keeps coming back whenever im just chilling
>>19111657>close to a decade since I've seen this episode> still cry like a bitch just seeing the image.
>>19129054what did you think of Diebuster?
>>19129069>>19129069Its not fair
>>19129071I think that episode is the last time I cried. The internet and the endless stream of news made me insensitive and deprived of empathy.
>>19112270The GG(G) gas sequence in 08th MS Team was a lot more graphic.
>your master and his home planet have already met their fate, but all you can do is cry out to him for help
There's this one moment in Liveman that just sticks out in my memory. It's when Gildos literally finds out every memory and history of his species and planet was a fake created by Dr. Bias and he was actually just a robot and didn't know it. His VA sounded like he was having a legitimate breakdown and it was kinda haunting.
I've been watching toei Getter and holy shit, it has some very gruesome moments>that dinosaur that thawed out from a glacier and has a flawless plan but Goer gives him a stupid order to kill the Getter ruining the plan and he is about to ignore it but his loyalty for the emperor causes his demise>that ice lizard that gets GETTA BEEEAAM'd and uses his last minutes of life to carry out the plan, pretending to be an alien to give Saotome a bad rep, knowing full well that he was merely a sacrifice for the greater good>that episode when the getter comes back from space and finds the studio completely destroyed and basically gone, thinking all their friends are dead>that dinosaur that receives a bit of compassion by the getter team and ends up sacrificing himself instead of killing them (pic related)
it's entirely possible that the earth was dead and that it was all automated prior to the release of Diebuster all of the events from Noriko's perspective took place in less than year (from her being selected for the top team to her returning to earth in the year 12K) even with the existence of Diebuster everybody and everything she knew is long goneI love the ending, but damn its bleak when you take time to think about it
>>19130737Anything relativistic is kind of bleak. It's a good chunk of why Soviet SF (which tends heavily towards having time dilation in its space travel) is so melancholy. The other reason, of course, is that it's Russian.
>>19130756>Soviet SFany recs?
>>19118981space guts had a hard life>parents killed>seperated from your brother>sent to serve a slave child labor/soldier>have a glimmer of hope when the kids take over>bigger glimmer of hope when finding your broither again and alive>he just dies in front of you >horribly
>>19129073it was alright. not as good as gunbuster of course, but i enjoyed it well enough and the reverse view point at the end
>>19120777I can still hear the screamAlso that scene from LoGH when they show what's happening inside a damaged ship and you see just wounded dying men begging for their mothers
>>19130765iirc Teens in the Universe does some stuff with it
Not that haunting but that one sequence from Rahxephon that was horribly depressing. The one time it showed up in SRW, they played it straight and it was just as horribly depressing.
Near the end of Ryuki where Asakura gets gunned down and Kitaoka dies of cancer. Good shit man.
>>19132878Dude, Kitaoka dying of cancer absolutely destroyed me cause I first watched Ryuki when a friend of mine was dying of leukemia
>>19130756This reminds me of the video where that cosmonaut says that it is his last flight but he can't bring himself to say it in Russian so he says it in English.
>>19130765the 1972 version of solaris is considered the definitive soviet sci-fi movie, can recommend.
>>19108864Be invoked was crazy.
>>19130737They spelled it in Katakana, usually reserved for other things besides common Japanese phrases, instead of HiraganaIt's entirely possible the Japanese language has deteriorated or is even deadThey still went out of their way to put together a welcome home message after hundreds of years, even if it's 'wrong'
>>19131068You didn't even mention his slut wife's murder.
>>19136482Hundreds? Try thousands. I think the number was something like 12k years later or something crazy like that
>>19130765wait, recs in general or specific to relativity?Per Aspera Ad Astra / Чepeз тepнии к звёздaм is good stuff but it uses ftl I think Ikarie XB-1 does relativity? I know that's Eastern Bloc at least
>>19136482to be fair from what I understand katakana will get used for emphasized versions of Japanese words, like for big neon store signs and stuffit's not a hundred percent absolute rule, like how the Slayers games used English words written in hiragana for the titles
It's not as dark as any of the other examples in this thread but the OG Gundam getting its arms amd legs and head blown off and then blasting upwards at the Zeong in a suicidal effort made me feel really sad for it, I got attached to that hunk of metal
>>19137093That moment hit like a fucking truck considering Team Doberman had been used to take the piss out of Death Flags up to that point. And what made it worse was that there was no ugly sobbing or self-isolation by Team Rabbits. Just quiet rumination and Tamaki contemplating the fish guts.
Took me a while to find it, ep30.
>>19128011>>19128805My only question is who thought that this was a good idea.It really hurts. Especially when they do they best during the last day.
Reminder that in LOGH even "good" battles still had casualty rates in the double digits and that normal engagement had casualties in the millions for both sides. SIEG KAISER REINHARD
>>19137078breh the White Base getting smoked and sunk on irrelevant crevasse of a boa qu got me. like damn imagine the house in Fresh Prince got burn down on last episode
>>19126735I'm going through the manga right now and just got to this scene. I thought I'd be more prepared since I've seen the screenshot on here many times over, but it was still pretty crazy.>>19128044Who would win in a fight, a 1000 meter long sniper cannon mech or one weaboo with a laser pointer singing anime OPs?
This scene is so memorable to me, characters in anime don't feel as alive or as fluid like this anymore, their intimacy and the bounciness of their hair is so smooth and meaningful, seeing Kitten's death and Cosmo screaming out "Buff Clan" made my stomach drop
>>19141048This scene also hurt a lot, seeing Sheryl's sister die a couple episodes before the movie and seeing her suffer even more with Gije's death was just tear jerking
