Any real benefit in getting SSSociety limited edition, as apposed to ordinary release? Is Tachikoma Days included in both releases? (the short tachi films at the end of the episodes I believe???)

Well, not really a beginner, but I'd like someone to recommend me "sad Anime"

Basically the type of Genre that'll make you cry.

Such as Kannon, Air and Rumbling Hearts.

Anybody know of any good shows like those? (Excluding Clannad, I'm looking into that already)

Seen it, loved it, got manga vol 1-4 of Fruits basket too.

Fantastic series, but the anime sucks compared to the manga, I can see why the author of the manga didn't like the anime's director, he left so much out, even the red hat ;[
