Some of the most memorable moments from Anime wither they were sad, epic or completely surprising.

The Top Ten

1 Goku's Sacrifice to Defeat Cell From Dragon Ball Z

Being the sore loser that he is Cell makes himself big in an attempt to blow up the earth, Goku doing the only thing he can do uses his teleport ability to transport Cell to another place but before he does he bids farewell to all his friends and his son Gohan, Cell blows up killing Goku as well as destroying King Kai's planet. - egnomac

Without Goku anime will not be the same and I bet inside Goku saw what he started and who tried to finish it gohan his only son at the time. trunks vegeta and piccolo tried to finish it well not so sure about vegeta but Goku knew he was was the one to finish it and when he said goodbye had everyone like well words probarly couldn't describe how they feel and if I can I will vote also for when gohan defeated cell because gohan had that power so he could finish it 2

Sad and memorable at the same time.

4 The Final Battle Scene From Cowboy Bebop V 1 Comment
5 Envy Murders Maes Huges From Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

This scene tore my heart out, Maes was a loving, caring, and adoring Parent/Husband, and not only that was kind and considerate to those around him. And at the same time brave, smart, and determined. And seeing a personal favorite of mine go and an overall beloved anime character go is more than enough to make a few tears.

Huges discovers some shocking things going on in the military but before he can report to Mustang about what he finds he is attacked by Lust and Envy, he eventually makes it to an outside payphone and is confronted by Envy but before he can attack he's stopped by Envy who's transforms into his wife Gracia and shoots him. - egnomac
