What I'm looking for are series where a main character (preferably the protagonist) starts out incredibly optimistic about the world surrounding them. Through a series of events, preferably displayed in the manga, they become cynical and jaded.

I would recommend Haruhi Suzumiya (Novel), but Kyon is cynical from the very start. It's still a good read if you like cynical characters.

This happens in the anime of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

Not sure about the manga.

Tenma in Monster.
Oh, and Saya in the anime Blood+ (because she starts out amnesic)

How could I forget Rock from Black Lagoon, he totally gets more and more cynical as the story goes on.
