Saddest Anime Series

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Doubutsu Sumo Taikai
182 Amefuri Kozou
183 Rewrite

An extremely emotional journey through the supernatural. A tragic yet inspirational tale of love stretching throughout time, dimensions, and worlds. Teaches lessons about war and peace, what fuels our actions and decisions, who we trust most in our lives, and the consequences of our choices. It takes us through hell and back in order to enforce these points, with death, sadness, and trauma being frequent topics. Overall, it leaves us with a feeling of tragedy followed by joy, very similar to that of Clannad.

184 Made in Abyss

I never cried like this for a story (even after watching the supposed saddest ones like Clannad AS, Elfen lied, anohana, Akame,...)
And adding the fact that it is really sad the anime itself is really well made. - floflim

185 Sonic X Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.

It has anime-like features, so it counts for me. The ending is a tearjerker

When shadow died.. I felt like I couldn't cope with life anymore, I cried and cried my eyes out for days.

Ok, the ending was sad...

Sonic X over Trigun?

186 Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch is a shōjo manga and anime series created by Michiko Yokote, with artwork by Pink Hanamori.
187 Looking Up at the Half-moon

This anime is really underrated, but it has such a fantastic story. It's really short and simple yet emotional and beautiful. I have never cried during an anime, but this anime brought me closer to tears than any other.

This anime may not be the most popular ever, but it's the only one EVER that had made me cry. Elfin lied, Clannad, Kanon, Mirai Nikki... None of these have made me cry. If your looking for a tragety, this is your anime.

This anime is leave a good expression of love to me
And even its short. This make me Cry so hard

188 Heaven's Memo Pad


189 Canaan
190 Xam'd: Lost Memories
191 Ga-Rei: Zero
192 Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!
193 The Rose of Versailles

It seemed so silly at first, but then it started to get pretty sad, and by the end just hearing the opening or ending themes makes me feel emotional.

194 Boku no Pico Boku no Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.

So beautiful and heartbreaking, I'm a man and I cried all times

The struggles of a kid trying to find his place in the world his friend being the only 1 by his side

It's just that good. You SHOULD watch this anime! It's an absolute must watch for any anime fan out there!

Are you sure? I had to skip a part in Mirai Nikki because my eyes couldn't take it.

This makes me want to cry
I didn't even watch it

WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE REPLACED BY "Teen Titans Go"?! It makes me SO MAD! Now all they do is do stuff around the house... Like what? /

Yep I remember watching the show when I was younger when Cartoon Network had better shows like yin yang

I loved this show, but when they shut it down and replaced it with the new one Teen Titans Go! I got so mad

I agree with y
