Top Ten Saddest Anime Songs

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Shirushi - Sword Art Online II

The saddest song in Sword Art Online. Brings back memories of the times Asuna has with Yuuki.

Definitely the saddest song I've ever heard in my life.

82Shukumei - Fairy Tail
83Secret Base - Kayano Ai, Tomatsu Haruka, Hayami Saori
84Rain - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

This played as the ending of the second to last episode of the series, and the montage that played alongside this song was enough to cause me to bawl my eyes out. Fullmetal Alchemist overall is one of the greatest pieces of art ever created, and its soundtrack is no different.

85Here With You - Future Diary

Very beautiful! - jtikey

86I Just Can't Stop Loving You - Metropolis
87Sanctuary - Kiba

This is not even a sad song - RateItMyself

88Hiro No Tsuki - Outlaw Star
89To the Beginning - Fate/ Zero

Fate Zero and all the sequels of Fate/Stay Night has the best music... This also includes the saddest OSTs.

90Komm, süsser Tod - Neon Genesis Evangelion

This upbeat song seems to be a cheerful ironic theme in 'The End of Evangelion' that obviously misrepresents what is actually happening in the film while it is playing. But if you listen to the lyrics, you can realise the disturbing and depressing nature of the song.

This is the saddest song ever because talks about ending everything.

91Innocent Days - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
92Hear Our Prayer - Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
93Grief and Sorrow/Hokage's Funeral - Naruto

One of the best instrumentals in the series

95Thank You - Naruto Shippuden
96Death Note Main Theme

Quite said if you get into it. It remembers me of the whole series and the deaths in it

97Natsuhiboshi - Naruto
98Song of Passage - Rewrite

Because of its unique compositions and arrangements of the notes made the song sound weird but beautiful. After all, this song was written by Jun Maeda, aka The King of Feels.

Sad moment, the song is nostalgic because it's the lyrics version of the theme that always appear when you open the game. But the lyrics are a mess.

The reason the lyrics are a "mess" is because its supposed to represent the jumbled language that Kagari's speaks. Besides, the non-Kagari language version is CANOE.

99Lacie's Song - Pandora Hearts

If you read the manga you understand how sad and depressing the song is
In the anime it seems like just an ordinary ost but when you find the story behind it it is very depressing

Guys... This is a really sad song
I heard this without even reading the anime or manga from which it is from, when I heard it I felt sadness and nostalgia

This song should be in the top 5! It brings a lot of emotions and nostalguc melodies...

This should be in the top 5, hands down!
