Top Ten Saddest and Most Tragic Anime Couples

These were the couples that sadly didn't end up together because of death or other circumstances. Where tragedy replaced the love that the couples should have had. Warning! There will be spoilers!
The Top Ten
1 Kousei and Kaori - Your Lie In April

It's been over a year since I seen your lie in april but it still makes me cry just to think about the ending. I knew what was coming for kaori but I still hoped that somehow she would survive and that her and kousei would end up together. I just refuse to believe that kaori died. I've wrote a manmade alternate ending to your lie in april about if kaori survived the surgery. I got to love kaori so much and when she died it was like losing someone in real life. Your lie in april was the best anime I ever seen, and no doubt the saddest 😭

2 Spike and Julia - Cowboy Bebop

These two loved each other but Julia was with Vicious. They decided to run away together as starcrossed lovers but Vicious got the better of them. It was so sad seeing all the effort they put into being together be completely destroyed.

3 Yui and Hinata - Angel Beats

Yui spent her life confided in a wheelchair and was forced to have her mother do everything for her. In purgatory, she was free to do whatever she wanted. But the one thing she wanted most was to be married and Hinata promised to marry her. Sadly though, Yui has fulfilled her final wish in purgatory and has no reason to stay. Leaving Hinata behind.

Sometimes, just to torture myself, I look up that really sad scene from episode 10 and cry my eyes out.

4 Hige and Blue - Wolf's Rain

Hige and Blue were such a cute couple. When they reunited, you could tell how happy they were to see each other. But in the end, it wasn't meant to be. Blue and Hige die side by side together in the finale of the anime.

5 Hatori and Kana - Fruits Basket

These two wanted to be married together but a horrible icident scarred Kana for life. So Hatori removed her memories and watches Kana from afar instead.

6 Suzaku and Euphemia - Code Geass

Well Lelouch unintetionally uses his Geass powers to possess Euphemia. She orders her people to kill the Japanese on a crazy massacre spree and Lelouch is forced to kill her. Suzaku does everything in his power to try and save her but she dies.

7 Train and Saya - Black Cat

Damn you Creed! Train and Saya were heading on the right track together but you had to ruin it all!

8 Kouta and Lucy - Elfen Lied

Lucy's life has been nothing but a nightmare. She grew up in an orphanage, was bullied, the first person who ever trusted her betrayed her, saw the puppy she loved die and Kouta fell in love with his cousin. Kouta was the only person who ever saw any good in her and didn't want her dead just because she was a diclonius. But they couldn't be together.

This is why Yuka isn't loved in the Elfen Lied community. Kouta and Lucy should have been together!

9 Simon and Nia - Gurren Lagann

Gainax endings can be the worse. Simon and Nia were just about to get married and then she disappears...

10 Wolf Man and Hana - Wolf Children

These two were just startig off a family. With a daughter named Yui and a son named Ame. They were a happy couple despite the fact that one of them could change into a wolf. But Wolf Man died trying to feed his mate and children. Leaving a poor Hana heartbroken and tying to figure out how to raise Wolf Children.

The Contenders
11 Zeref Dragneel and Mavis Vermillion - Fairy Tail

The reason why I believe they are one of the saddest couples is because of the fact that the reason why Zeref killed Mavis was because he had loved her so much that it had killed her. Because of his curse, their own shared curse he had killed her. Considering he spent 300 years (then) wanting to die and finally he met someone he loved and he thought that if at least they could be together everything would be alright. He had killed her. In the end even Mavis couldn't hate him because they loved each other so much. It's heartbreaking because he had killed her just because he loved her.

12 Eren and Mikasa - Attack on Titan
13 Maes Hughes and Gracia Hughes - Fullmetal Alchemist

It's so sad! Maes loved his wife more than anything. Well, maybe except for his daughter. And then... Oh gosh. I cried so much.

14 Jellal Fernandes and Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail

That Jellal! Why'd he lie! Everyone's unhappy, me, you guys, Erza and even himself!

I love them!
My favorite couple of all time.

15 Ban and Elaine - The Seven Deadly Sins
16 Gin Ichimaru and Rangiku Matsumoto - Bleach

Truly most saddest anime couple. Gin left Soul Society to spy on Aizen who was the top villain. He wanted to be Shinigami to protect Rangiku. It was heartbreaking when Rangiku saw Gin lying dead on the ground when he was killed by Aizen. She flew towards Gin and cried. T_T

17 Obito Uchiha and Rin Nohara - Naruto

Rin was everything to Obito, and she got killed by his most trusted friend.

Not exactly the cutest because I find Rin a little annoying for her crush on Kakashi, but a good ship

18 Shinobu and Giyuu - Kimetsu No Yaiba
19 Mitsuba and Kou - Toilet Bound Hanako Kun

This isn't canon (yet). But their story is just so tragic. Please make them canon already Mitsuba already suffered enough

20 Meliodas and Elizabeth - The Seven Deadly Sins
21 Okabe Rintarou and Kurisu Makise - Steins;Gate

Such a beautiful and yet so, so sad, couple. Spoiler Alert, but since they had to get Kurisu back to the time to where she has died, Okabe tells her boldly that he loves her and the two share (what I think) is anime's most heartfelt Such a romantic and depressing pair. To say goodbye to each other for good (or maybe not for good) by kissing on the lips at least four times I think? Meh, who cares? They kissed WHO!

These two are so emotionally beautiful. They had to send Kurisu back to the day of when she was killed, and to say goodbye to each other, they ending up having multiple "goodbye, I love you" kisses. Making it anime's most heartfelt kiss. AWWW...

22 Tsukasa Mizugaki and Isla - Plastic Memories
23 Tomoya Okazaki and Nagisa Furukawa - Clannad & Clannad ~After Story~
24 Erik and Kinana - Fairy Tail
25 Gray Fullbuster and Juvia Lockser - Fairy Tail

Sad!? But how? They are more like annoying
