Unhappy Saikano

Anyone else enjoy this absolutely heartwrenching anime? Admittedly I have yet to see all of it (can't find vol 3 for rent..) But from what I've seen it's amazing. I had tears in my eyes in the first ep... Poor little Chise.. It's the perfect anime if u wanna spend some quality time with a box of tissues.

So what do u all think of this cry-fest? And please warn me if ur posting spoliers~

I've seen all of it. Managed to only watch this series once and it was hard to watch. It's one of those anime that things seem to get worse and worse with each episode. It's as almost if anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. It's easily one of my favorite anime of all time. It manages to pull the emotions out of you because you do sympathize with characters and the impending doom that the story brings into their lives.

I totally know what u mean. I felt that way from watching the 2 first volumes. Life just refuses to give Chise and Shuji any kind of break...

I really feel like watching the rest of it now. It's not the easiest anime to find, but I'm sure it's somewhere...

Anyway, here's a pretty cool AMV http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6IZrShUHjU Really captures the unfortunate feel of the series.

Strange...I'm not really a Marilyn Manson fan, but I really liked the song. Not to mention the fact that it fit into the AMV perfectly.

Yeah I normally dislike Manson too... But it works. On the subject, this one is also nice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__Zs3...elated&search=. With footage of the live action movie (I must be outta some loop, cause I didn't even know they made one o.O).

Interesting. Man, Chise looks hot in the live-action movie! Watching this makes me want to watch the live-action movie.

I did a little backround search on this anime and it has gotten good ratings just about everywhere so I think I'll check it out. I like a good anime that will make me cry.

The two part OAV Saikano - Another Love Song was licenced by Viz Media in the US last year. It's more of a side-story, focusing of Chise's view of the story during the time she was with the army & away from Shuji. Chise's story is told through the eyes of a new character, one who helps Chise come to terms with her role as the 'Ultimate Weapon'.
