Sometimes you're in the mood for something depressing.  Anime is one of those kind of things where you're least expected to be affected emotionally so it's a pleasant surprise when it does.

Almost makes you cry.

Depressing, but still one of the best anime to watch.

Highly recommended.

They kissed as Brother and Sister. Not like.."loving" eachother in "THAT" way. But I do wish he comes back alive....Oh Lelouch, you went through all that just for your little sis...I wish my Big Brother was like him. Lol...he's nothing like Lelouch.

Piano prodigy Arima Kosei dominated the competition and all child musicians knew his name. But after his mother, who was also his instructor, passed away, he had a mental breakdown while performing at a recital that resulted in him no longer being able to hear the sound of his piano even though his hearing was perfectly fine. Even two years later, Kosei hasn't touched the piano and views the world in monotone, and without any flair or color. He was content at living out his life with his good friends Tsubaki and Watari until, one day, a girl changed everything. Miyazono Kaori is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kosei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kosei was used to.

Don't mind people who say it wasn't depressing. If you get into it, there's hardly a story as depressing as this one. It was about will to save the world, the will to hold a daughter again. The will to save as many, as possible. Destructing ending crowns this series. You will see one's man world fall apart in a way you might not expect.

Yuuichi Aizawa, a high school student, returns to a town that he last visited 7 years previously to live with his aunt and cousin. For a reason he’s not quite sure of, he can hardly remember anything about his last visit, but initially this doesn’t seem to worry him too much.

The day after he arrives he goes into town where he (literally) bumps into a girl named Ayu Tsukimiya, and Yuuichi’s memories slowly begin to return.
