Top Ten Saddest Anime SongsThe title says it all! Which songs in anime are truely the saddest?
The Top Ten
The saddest song ever, it makes me cry every time a heard it.
So Beautiful, I tear up every time... Naruto just makes everything sadder with it's beautiful music... ;-;
I'm glad this soundtrack got #1 on this list. The first time they used this soundtrack was when Haku had his childhood explained and his death. I think why everyone liked this soundtrack is the way it was timed during those last episodes of arc 1. Great way to start the series.
Whenever I hear it tears automatically start coming out of my eyes no doubt it should be no oneV 63 Comments
This song explains everything about this anime like how the laughter of everyone is your most precious treasure because no one is there anymore.
Absolutely beautiful- it really makes you realize that life is worth living, and just makes you feel the emotions of the characters as they disappear and watch loved ones die, but they still keep trying for revenge on their god.
Nothing to say, it just explains the anime in a minute.
Don't know why, I just feel the sorrow in LiSA voiceV 65 Comments

This song is so beautiful and sad. In fact, I'm listening to it right now. As I type this. The lyrics are great, this song is definitely one of my favourite anime openings.
I just finished the anime last night. This song makes me cry every time!
Just the opening song makes you realize the anime you are about to watch is emotionally engaging. - hedwigV 21 Comments
Hearing this reminds me the saddest moments and deaths.
When I heard the slow version of this song, I suddenly felt sadness. It is an absolute contrast with the normal one. At first, I thought Fairy Tail is just an anime that is meant to be funny but as the story progress, it is not like what I thought.
This show tries to be funny but it is not, This show tries to have good action but it doesn't, This show has an amazing sad song and it is one of my favorite anime, that's how good it is
If you have seen any anime characters death do not listen to this song it will break your heart even if it is a bad or hated characterV 20 Comments
This song is beautiful. It played at Misuzu's death. It's really touching. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ
I watched Air and I'm super sad when Mizusu died in her mother (the mother who adopted her and been taking care of her after 10 years). And the song makes it even depressing! Gao *sobs* Gao! *cries dramatically*V 1 Comment

Even that I don't know what language It is, It's still a great song. The longer version was sad too. Especially on the piano part :'( and the chorus - MLPFan
This anime was one of the best I've come across so far, and this song is part of the reason. It's so beautiful.
This anime had 1 of the best soundtracks ever and made Madoka even more emotional.

I love Vocaloid, but their saddest song, in my opinion, is Last Night, Good Night (Hatsune Miku)
It's not anime but still really sad

All of the songs in the Guilty Crown OST is beautiful, even the overall plot and art of the anime is beautiful. The harmony of the violin and piano can just simply break you down to tears...

It made me cry so much I love this song
Oh, my God, this song got me bawling like a baby for days. It has that kind of sad feel to it, even when you haven't watched Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. And the story behind it...;n;
Every time I listen to this I think of the deep story of when they cry, and the deaths, the feels and the pain. If you don't cry at some point in this song you are heartless...
The Perfect harmonic composition to sleep...V 18 Comments
