Tear Inducing Anime

These are all of the shows that have ever made me cry. By crying, I don't necessarily mean that they made me sad; some made me laugh so hard that I cried or I cried out of sheer joy. Crying does mean that I didn't simply get damp eyes though. Tears rolled down my cheeks. There are three sections to the list: sad tears, happy tears, and laughing tears. Sometimes they kind of mix together though.
