Have you ever seen an anime death which is not just sad but depressing? Some are just sad while others are totally depressing.

The Top Ten

1 Misuzu Kamio - Air

She died in so much pain it was so sad. It made my eyes drop with tears. She had been cursed and Yukito finally broke it. She was reincarnated into the girl walking on the beach. She was so cute so WHY DID SHE DIE!? T-T - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

3 Michiru - Air

There this one death scene that was so depressing. A girl went on a train and then stood on a balcony and JUMPED OFF - JaysTop10List

Apparentally, Michiru was meant to be Minagi's younger sister and she wasn't meant to exist as Minagi's mother lost the baby. It was really sad. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

4 Enma Ai - Hell Girl Two Mirrors

Ai's death was UNEXPECTED. Those horrible neighbours of Takuma killed her for no reason because one of them didn't want to go to hell. It was exactly like when her villagers buried her alive. She turned the boat round for Takuma just because he was having the same experience. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

5 Kanna - Air

Kanna was flying in the sky when priests chanted stuff to control her and army was shooting arrows at her until she died and burst into particles of light. She wanted to see her mother one last time and she did. It was really sad. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

6 L - Death Note L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

Our precious L... Died knowing he was next one to be killed :( - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

7 Makoto Sawatari - Kanon

Oh my god. the saddest thing I have ever seen in anime ever. Only scene I have EVER cried during - taishisohma

Makoto was originally a baby orphan fox who wanted to be with Yuichi. She became human and got 'married' to Yuichi and on their happy day, she disappeared, right out of Yuichi's arms... :( - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

8 Kaori Miyazono - Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso Kaori Miyazono - Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

This anime is so sad it brought me to tears, it was really sad on how she died. And the letter for God's sake. The feels in this anime.

This is the saddest manga I have ever read. It is really worth watching.

This ending was so stupid. it tried WAY too hard. I wasn't saddened by this, I was mad. I felt like I wasted my time. - taishisohma

The letter though... I showed my friend a video of the letter and she geared up even though she never watched the anime!

This anime really shows us to live life up to its fullest.

He had many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

Goku was really awesome, and when he sacrificed himself to "stop" Cell, I was bawling. The way Gohan and the others reacted was saddening, and when he stood in front of his son, and said, "I'm proud of you. Good-bye, son," I just started really bawling. He nearly avoided death once, when he was Namek (I cried at that too), so I was like, "he must be joking again. He's Goku, he can't die. It's not possible." He was one of my favorites in DBZ, and that death must've been a huge impact to a lot of people.

It was terrible, all she wanted was to live a normal life, but she couldn't because of a disease.
And seeing her body fall apart was just shocking.
