Top Ten Saddest Anime Songs
The Contenders: Page 2XW
This song is highly emotional and perfectly captures the Elric brothers' tragic past. This song should be number one!
WHAT? This should be in the top 5 if not in the first slot. I love this song, it's impossible to not get teary eyed when you listen to it.
It is so sad and yet so happy at the same time. It reminds you of the Elric's past, and yet gives you hope for their next victory.
Most Amazing soundtrack ever. Period.V4 Comments
I think Inevitabilis, the piano version of this song is sadder but whatever, this one's really good too.
I listen to this song and every time I just feel peacefulness and sadness...
Yes exactly, the "Secret Base" song of Anohana is really something really beautiful, it's making really a sad effect after watching the series, and when reading the lyrics it's just touching
It just reminds me of the ending of Anohana especially with its beautiful lyrics, marvelous tune, and other synonyms for awesome tone. Listening to it will bring you the feels deep in your heart
The lyrics so well composed. The anime so well made. Every time I listen to this song, it brings tears to my eyes.
One of the best songs I've ever heardV17 Comments
I really love this song. It has no words, but you can feel the emotion flowing from it. You can make up a story for it, or you can use the real one. The real story is this:
Princess Usagi gave her beloved prince, Mamora, a locket. The locket had been passed down by moon royalty for forever. That day, Mamora left to fight in a war. The moon kingdom was almost wiped out. In hopes of one day restoring her kingdom, Queen Serenity used the last of her power to send her royal court, daughter, and the prince to earth. Now, when ever Usagi hears this locket she is overwhelmed with sorrow, and she cannot remember why. Not even of the lover she almost lost to evil.
Love this song, it goes perfectly with the scene in SM it's played in. They couldn't pick a better song.V1 Comment
I agree, Angel Beats! Is a really awesome anime and I totally recommend everyone to watch this anime if you haven't and if you have, re-watch it again. This anime totally makes you think about life and how you've lived it. I think it will also open up your mind.
The best song ever with a beautiful meaning. Never show your tears always try to fight! Angel beats is the best anime ever and it will be the best forever.
Very very very touching and sad anime. Everyone should watch it since it make you appreciate your life.V3 Comments
Truly a very sad song which I will always remember and get me right in the heart
Not a single amine can compete with clannad and its OSTs. simply heartbreaking.
This song is so powerful and meaningful, though there are no lyrics. It contains so much emotion, basically zapping the whole Angel Beats anime into this whole song (other than Ichiban no Takaramono). It is amazing and strong.
Real awesome theme! You should really listen to it, definitely!
Gave me the strength in life. Really powerful.V2 Comments
'Really emotional song at a really emotional moment. Doesn't hurt that it is one of my favorites to listen to

A Beautiful song for an epic tale
The best song for the best end of the best anime, must be 1st withouth a dubt, whoever has seen Code Geass is going to feel the saddest of the emotions by hearing this masterpiece.V5 Comments
This is just the saddest and most beautiful song I ever heard. This is just... Amazing. Seriously, before I didn't know InuYasha and it's because of this song that I started to watch that anime (and becoming one of my favorite but that's not the question).
NO SERIOUSLY, LISTEN THIS SONG NOW THIS IS AWESOME MAKE ME CRY AJDNELXBDKHWHSK
You know what? Before I listened to this song, I thought Orange was the saddest song (I commented so on many of these). However, my eyes have been opened and I have a new #1 saddest song. I also started watching Inuyasha and am now addicted to it. Kikyo and Inuyasha's forbidden love, Kagome the tragic reminder. The story as Kagome mends Inuyasha's heart after it being shattered by Kikyo. This is about as captivating as it gets people.
Even without any images, this song can hit you right in the heart just by the tone and tempo. Soft yet full with impact
This should be in the top 20 AT LEAST. One of the best everV5 Comments
This song make me cry, even if I watched this anime long time ago I still have the sad feeling! I think it should go into top tens ;_;
I really love this song. It has so much meaning to it. It really brings out your emotions. And if you watch the anime, all those scenes that has this song playing, will make you cry!
One of the meanest love story (The final moment when Yuno Stabbed herself for Yuki) Cries a river accompanied by this song
It may be just a soundtrack... but enough to make tears leak outV7 Comments
