    Default Suicide in Anime

    Suicide seems to be an all too often event in Japanese society. So it does not seem surprising when it finds its way into anime. I have too few examples to rank, but here are some of the most notable. SOME minor SPOILERS.

    Paranoia Agent. There is one episode where an old man, a younger man, and a young girl enter into a suicide pack. Oddly, and darkly, it is the funniest episode in the series. Actually, it is the only funny episode. They fail in their attempts, but they do become the only ones to freak out Liíl Slugger.

    Goku in Dragon Ball Z. Twice Goku gives his life to save others. The first time really does not count as a suicide because he expects to get revived with the Dragon Balls. But the second time, Goku blows himself up trying to take Cell with him, thinking that this time he wonít come back. Apparently Goku did not watch enough anime. Anyway, itís an heroic death, but it is still a suicide Ė technically.

    Homura in Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion. I know many are going to say, ďWhat the hell are you talking about? When did Homura commit suicide? Apparently you did not watch the post-credits sequence, or you did not watch closely. After the credits run, we see Homura and Kyubey. We donít get a look at what happens next, only the aftermath of their confrontation. Homura apparently finally destroys Kyubey as she is doing a victory dance around his mangled body. Next, Homura goes to the edge of the precipice they were fighting on, and she leaps to the ground below. Or does she? Look again. She does not leap. She leans forward and lets herself fall headfirst. Even a magical girl cannot survive a broken neck.

    Chisa from Lain. Chisa is a minor character who is only seen in two scenes. But she opens the series by jumping off a building to her bloody death below. That is the catalyst which sets the story in motion. Actually, the catalyst is the e-mail from Chisa from beyond the grave, which Lain answers.

    Misa from Death Note. Misa seems to be the sole survivor, but without Light and without her Shinigami, Misa is all alone in the world. She takes care of that problem by jumping off a building at the end. True you donít see her jump, but it is certainly implied. Many Misa fans however insist she does not die. So what is she doing climbing on that building?

    When They Cry. I donít know the name of the character. I never watched the series, but I have seen clips. This one clip had this girl intentionally bang her head against a sharp knife so that the series villainess does not kill her. Brutal..
    .
    So you got any examples?

    Note: I do not recommend suicide for anyone. Get help.

    Another- Terrified and completely gone with everything that's going on, the teacher violently stabs himself in the throat with a large kitchen knife in front of his class.

    Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu- After finally managing to save his own life, one of his dear friends dies in his place. After running away and wallowing in his own self-pity for a bit, he finally realizes what he has to do to save everyone, and eagerly dives off of a cliff to activate his Return By Death. Not a permanent death, but pretty notable and easily the most glorified I've ever seen, complete with a great ost.


    I'm sure I've seen more, but these two definitely come to mind immediately for me.

    One of the best scenes in Durarara! was the suicide attempts in one of the opening episodes.




    I recently published something along these lines actually https://www.amazon.com/Suicide-Pact-.../dp/1695679512

    I thought about that scene, but the girl did not quite finish it. This isn't the original English dub, but it is the only video I could find of that scene:



    Actually, I think it is from Durarara!!X2.

    Chisa may just be a minor character, but as I said, she gets the ball rolling in Lain.



    And that is how the series opens.

    SPOILER HERE. The final scene in Death Note has Mesa going to meet her fate. I think this clip cuts out something though. As I recall, we do not see her jump, but there is a shot or something at the edge of the roof where we do not see Mesa. She's on her way down.



    Another version, which by my memory does not show everything. Maybe a few seconds at the end are cut. But I don't remember the song.



    Leaping off buildings seems to be popular.

    Homura's fate:
    Hey, she jumped. And it was the original Durarara.

    A lot of people in anime try to kill themselves and get saved. Look at DBZ or Yu Yu Hakusho. I blame the Grim Reaper's revolving door policy.

    There was quite a break for me between watching Durarara and DurararaX2. Maybe the scene was in the first series and then repeated in the second. I seem to remember in X2 some sort of strange reference which made me think that. But it has been a while since I watched X2.

    The scene from When They Cry is just sick. But effective!
