Saddest Anime Deaths


The Contenders: Page 12

221 Tanya - Darker than Black
222 Yukari Isshiki - Slave Sisters
223 Makashima's Death - Psycho Pass

Sometimes the bad guy needs to live. The story would have been fine if he lived.

Makashima was Psycho Pass. He was the most interesting element of the show. His death was a heartbreak. - RalphSaad

When Makashima was running through the fields in his final attempt to escape, I was all like "hell noo don't die! ". Even though he was the antagonist, he fought for his cause to change society which I highly respect. Hus death was so dramatic and tragic! He died in the hands of Kougami! Kou-chan is like super good and all but why Makashima? Ugg too sad

224 Soichiro Yagami - Death Note

I did not cry at L's death, but to me, his death was the most traumatic. It's the fact that he died living a lie, thinking his son was innocent, that his son wasn't kira, that was really tear-jerking. And poor light, he really respected his father, and to live with the experience.

It is just so sad that he was a good man with great honor and the son that he loved and cared for so much was the kira that he has been struggling and suffering against. even though l said so he never believed light was kira and was killed beleiving in a lie. and his own son light was going to kill him as well

225 Antauri - Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!
226 Aru Akise - Future Diary Aru Akise - Future Diary

It was sad but in my opinion, not the saddest anime death. I actually found his death satisfying but that's because he was beheaded and I'm weird like that.

Akise the reason I continued the show :/

I agree, this death was the end of me.

I was so happy when he died. I never want to see his face again

232 Gen Shishio - Kekkaishi

Most don't know about this anime so I don't expect many to see it but you should check it out it has a love and romance aspect then there are good fighting scenes this anime had me in bliss and I actually cried a lot so I hope you guys check it out.

Okay so sadly this anime isn't well known but his death was truely sad like I didn't see I coming I expected him to stick around this was the first anime I ever watched

233 Yusuke Urameshi - Yu Yu Hakusho Yusuke Urameshi - Yu Yu Hakusho
234 Roy Focker - Macross

Playing his guitar as he bled to death... for its time this was amazingly poignant

235 Yoite - Nabari no Ou

Yoite's death broke my heart- pretty sure everyone assumed they would somehow magically save him with the Shinrabansho, so it was a crushing realization when they made the choice to let him die. After he started out as the main enemy, then tried to wipe himself from existence, all anyone really wanted was a happily ever after. But he didn't get it.

236 Yuka - Corpse Party

Why do the likable characters have to die?! It's not fair! Yuka was only 8 years old! She did not deserve to die! You just child abused an 8 year old girl to death her dying words , Oni chan... Let's... Go home... Together.

It was very gruesome but I kept spilling tears it was literally one of the saddest deaths but my sis was laughing cause she hated yuka for some reason :/

One of two sad deaths in corpse party. The other was seiko shinohara

237 Brandon Heat - Gungrave Brandon Heat - Gungrave

I must have missed this on the list somewhere, but if not then let me say that for someone who died twice and both in such tragic and shocking fashion, it's hard to dispute he has to be one of the most heartbreaking figures in present anime. The toll it takes on him and you is compounded by the culminating deaths of his former comrades at his hands, one more gut-wrenching than the next. If or when you watch this series, you'll find the final act unforgettable.

238 Pup - Space Dandy

Saddest death ever, Precious Up-side down Coconut Pie, felt hated and Dandy's love for her let her be at peace. To feel hated and left alone, many people feel that way in some point in their life.

239 Queen Serenity - Sailor Moon
240 All Shinsengumi Captains - Hakuoki

There was not a dry eye as each gallant division captain gave his life in the face of battle.
