Among the various genres of anime, there are always the few that just tend to pull at your heartstrings. Psychological anime is one of the genres that do that, plus sometimes stabs your heart a few times until nothing is left. But for some odd reason, we cannot stay away from the genre.
Without further ado, let’s begin the list that may break your heart. This list also goes back into the past at parts, as there is some older anime (two of them being from 1998). Keep in mind this list is in no particular order.
16. Death Parade
Synopsis: Heaven or hell do not exist. When one dies, they find themselves at a bar, Quindecim, where they the pair has to take part in a random game. It could be a simple game like darts or bowling, but the point of the game is to bring out the person’s true nature. Without recalling how they arrived, or the idea that only one of them would make it out, how would they react? Taking their natures and the outcome of the game into consideration, Decim decides on if they get reincarnated or not.
15. Future Diary
