The Top Ten
1 Grave of the Fireflies Grave of the Fireflies Product Image

I get that people are entitled to their opinions, but I really think it is a FACT that this is not only the saddest animated movie of all time, but possibly the saddest movie ever.

Movie tells an amazing story of how war destroyed a young man's life. Heartbreaking moments and soul wrenching animation.

HOW THE HELL this movie is not number one? This is the saddest thing ever created! Wonderful, but so sad...

Disney movies will touch your heart, but Studio Ghibli movies will touch your soul

One of the saddest animated movies I've seen. It makes me cry even today.

This really isn’t very sad compared to things like Grave of the Fireflies and A Silent Voice.

This isn't just a great sequel or a great animated movie. It's just a great movie period, not to mention one of the most emotional movies I've ever seen. The world building and the character development are incredible,and you really care about the characters and what's happening to them. There is also a shocking development towards the end that will have fans of the film tagging it as the franchises "Luke, I am your father" moment.

There are not a lot of movies that can move your emotions in the way How to Train your Dragon 2 can, and that is truly the mark of a great movie.

I've watched this movie recently and... OK, let's get to the point! This was absolutely one of the greatest movies in the world I've ever seen! I really didn't know that I would comment on this movie like this! I think you understand what I'm saying... I thought that there was no Animated movie sadder than Inside Out, but now I'm saying that How to train your dragon 2 is the best of'em all! But, one thing... Stoik shouldn't have been died! so sad!

This movie was so sad. I cried when his dragon left hiccup and when his father died and one more when hiccup tried to take his dragon back

I cry every time I see this movie.
