Looks like fans want to make their parents cry with the results, huh? Hey, even Gintama has a few tear-jerker episodes, and the Top 5 are certainly full of those tear jerkers.

So what do you think of the results? What anime would you recommend to your parents? Honestly for me, I would recommend Toradora for my mom and for my dad, I would recommend the original Mobile Suit Gundam
