Saddest Anime Series

The Contenders: Page 10

181 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.

182 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?

184 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

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.

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.

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

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

198 Vampire Knight Vampire Knight

If you read the manga saddest manga EVER they go through the tragic lives of each other and how much everyone suffers like Zero who's (SPIOLER)! Family dies he has to kill his brother he has to suffer from being a vampire and know that he can't get the girl he loves who later relized she is a vampire which makes him very sad because they were together as children and he parts with her by giving her a kiss saying he will kill her next time even though he doesn't want to because he's a vampire hunter

I didn't think this one was very sad but I liked the anime a LOT. Very entertaining. I think this one was more exciting. It made My heart raced instead of making my tears flow.

I was just moved by dorm president's resolve, his patience, and the way he endures the pain of watching yuki rooting for another guy.
