"One of the things I love about Anime is how nonchalant it is about killing off characters. It does things that western animators are often scared to do in fear of controversy since animation in the west still regarded largely for children. Not Anime though as your favourite characters can be taken away from you left and right in the blink of an eye, either horrifically or in the most heart breaking manner, either way, you are left staring at the screen with your jaw on the floor and a hole in your heart.
Warning: this list is Spoilerific. If you haven’t watched these anime yet, close the browser, watch the anime and then come back and read this damn article to completion.
