A few different parts of Fruits Basket made me become a little misty-eyed, but most of all was the backstory of Hatori. That was just...really sad. The ending of that show almost made me cry as well, albeit for a different reason.

I also think Voices of a Distant star goes without saying.

But there is also Yu Yu Hakusho where the younger Toguro chooses to go to the most extreme depths of Hell, even though he's only llearned a light penalty.  Plus Outlaw Star, when Jim meets the little girl sent to kill his team, doesn;t realize who she is, kills her in space combat, and eagerly awaits their date later in the afternoon.

I haven't got that kind of mileage just yet, but here's my top 3:

1.  RahXephon - When Haruka dies, near the end.  If you watch the credits through the end of the last episode, you also get an easter egg of young Ayato sitting on a beach, drawing the girl we've come to know as Reika Mishima, who introduces herself as Haruka Mishima.  I don't know about you folks, but that really messed me up after watching the whole show through.

2.  Chobits - At the end of episode 12 or 13, Hideki catches Shimbo with Miss Shimizu.  You hear rain and nothing else, then it fades, and you hear Hideki go 'Shh!'  This is where the credits roll song changed to Ningyohime.  The whole thing reminded me of something similar that happened a long time ago.  I had to not watch the show for a couple of days after that.

3.  Love Hina - This particular show had quite a few moments worthy of mention, but the one that stands out clearest in my mind is the Christmas Special.  Poor Keitaro has put himself through all kinds of trouble (well, more than usual anyway) to give Naru a Christmas present, only to find her giving a present (and presumably thanks to the rest of the gang, her heart) to her old high-school professor.  Defeated, he hobbles out of the hotel.  Fortunately for Keitaro, he got a happy ending - some of us aren't that fortunate.  Some of the dynamic between him and Motoko reminds me of those days, but this scene underscores it best.

30 years and I still manage to find stuff that makes me feel like I'm 15 all over again.  I don't guess that'll ever change.

more of a pissy moment then a sad moment... When Hot Ice Hilda dies in Outlaw star... she was the coolest character ever... but to die a loner? thats harsh..

That may not seem sad... but it makes me hurt inside.

Hmm...

Fate/Stay Night (anime adaption)- All my friends say that the whole ending in general is sad, but I didn't find it sad until at the very end when Sakura mentions Saber liking the food (or something to that effect)

.hack//SIGN- When Sora dies in-game and goes into a coma

.hack//ROOTS- When Shino dies in-game and goes into a coma (  if you read the one above this)

Gundam Seed- When Kira has to defeat Andrew Waltfeld, and when Athrun's father is killed.

Gundam Seed Destiny- When Kira kills Heine Westenfluss only in about an hour or two after his introduction to the series, and when Stella dies (all the while thinking Shinn will protect her from death)

Elfen Lied- When Kaede's puppy is bludgeoned to death (though the moments after that were quite enjoyable Cheesy )

Bebop: The end of the Jupiter Jazz set, and from when Spike dies through the credits.
Metropolis:  Tima's final words.
Trigun:  Wolfwood dying.  That whole scene was just too powerful.
Macross Plus: Guld's death was pretty sad, even though I still hated him.  Same with Sharon Apple.
Macross Zero: Nukes.

I know it's a bit belated, but I think the saddest anime moment is on Outlaw Star when Jim's new system to combat Hamiyo's Grappler succeed's and he kills her without realizing what he's deprived himself of.  It's followed by a wordless montage in which he is waiting for her and doesn't see her and trades some words with Gene later.
