The Top Ten Saddest Anime Couples

1 Kousei and Kaori - Your Lie In April

I can't tell how much I cried. Kousei and kaori are the best and will ship them till I die

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 😭

That last episode was so devastating to watch. These two should have been together but cruel reality took over instead. Which ended up with Kaori dying and Kousei not being with the girl he always wanted. - RoseRedFlower

So sad to see Kaori die... - HoneyClover

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. - RoseRedFlower

3 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. - RoseRedFlower

Blue x Hige! A ship to be!
They were obviously bound to be a ship from the start! Right? Hige was head over paws for this girl! Blue was definitely amazing, and I don’t think she really expected them to have a very strong relationship in the end. When they reunite, there eyes sparkled with happiness and love for each other.
And when they battled they battled side by side!
But there happiness ended when blue was dieing... Hige did the most brave and romantic thing and died beside her! 😢😭🐺

4 Yui and Hinata - Angel Beats

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

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. - RoseRedFlower

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. - RoseRedFlower

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. - RoseRedFlower

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! - RoseRedFlower

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. - RoseRedFlower

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

9 Ban and Elaine - The Seven Deadly Sins
10 Simon and Nia - Gurren Lagann

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

The Newcomers

? Mitsuba and Kou - Toilet Bound Hanako Kun

The Contenders

11 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. - RoseRedFlower

12 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.

The moment they promise to Ben together zeref kills Mavis, it’s really sad.

13 Jellal Fernandes and Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail

I love them!
My favorite couple of all time.

THEY ALMOST KISSED! but Hiro said that in the fairy tail manga the two already kissed and Jellal lied about being married yes he did.Sorry for the spoiler for the ones who haven't red the manga yet!

14 Gin Ichimaru & 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

15 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.

16 Gol D. Roger and Portgas D. Rouge - One Piece
17 Tsukasa Mizugaki and Isla - Plastic Memories
18 Erik and Kinana - Fairy Tail
19 Gray Fullbuster and Juvia Lockser - Fairy Tail

Sad!? But how? They are more like annoying - Crystalsnow

20 Meliodas and Elizabeth - The Seven Deadly Sins

they have the sadddest story, what

21 Kamina Jiha and Yoko Littner - Gurren Lagann
22 Sayaka and Kyoko - Puella Magi Madoka Magica
23 Nezumi and Shion - No. 6

Why is this not here? Cutest ship ever.

24 Okabe Rintarou x 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...

25 Obito Uchiha and Rin Nohara - Naruto

I mean seeing your love one dies at the age of what 13 is so sad

26 Willem Kmetsch and Chtholly Nota Seniorious - Sukasuka/WorldEnd

Possibly one of the most tragic anime/light novel couples in my opinion. Helplessly watching the girl you fell in love with sacrifice her life to save yours, not after proposing to her and making a vow to be together forever, is utterly heartbreaking.

Destined to be apart no matter how hard they struggle to be together.

27 Tomoya Okazaki and Nagisa Furukawa - Clannad & Clannad ~After Story~

I cried when Nagisa died after giving birth to Ushio

28 King and Diane - The Seven Deadly Sins
29 Meruem and Komugi - Hunter x Hunter

I will never forget this two. What they have is not a love story but a story about love. I think they don't even know what they truly feel for each other but the feeling of happiness when they are together defies all the odds.

30 Ginko Yurishiro and Kureha Tsubaki - Yuri Kuma Arashi
31 Fuwa Aika and Yoshino Takigawa - Zetsuen no tempest
