Saddest Anime Series

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Ansatsu Kyoshitsu

I know it's a comedy anime, but as the story progresses, you can see the demons everyone hides. The sadness everyone feels. The deaths they have seen. It's a fun and an anime. If you're talking about major character deaths. Do watch!

This anime is probably the funniest anime I have seen, but the ending and some of the parts in between are the saddest scenes in any anime I have ever seen.

122 Noragami Noragami

Noragami isn't sad at all, I think the only reason it's on this list because of episode 10 really sad moment

Well I guess most of the characters are already dead...

There is sadness in afterlife

This anime is sad yato back story, the characters, mny more - sadfag

123 Utawarerumono
124 Haibane Renmei

Angels aren't always happy.
And the latter part of this anime certainly isn't.

I want to know more about them,their past life and what future holds

125 Skip Beat! Skip Beat!

One of my favourite animes of all time, I can truly say I cried in it, the manga was exceptional too. you really start to bond with the main character and you can practically lose yourself in this anime. it was a ery inspirational anime.

Kyoko's backstory in itself is absolutely heart wrenching. Not just the parts with her mother, but mainly all of it.

126 Shaman King

"Shaman King can be one of the funniest anime to watch, but no matter how much you can put into it, anime can't always be funny, like this one, there are many downs, especially when Ren 'died' but comes back sooner, there are plenty of others I know, but Ren's death seemed to me the saddest..."

Such a well made anime and has so many emotional nuances. Just an absolute must watch. Very real and relatable characters. It's hands down my favorite anime for music score and just all around goodness. Great ending that's a lot more realistic than anime you often see. It's not a happy ending, but a GOOD one.

129 Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

How is this not higher on the list? This anime was so beautiful and you really got to know the characters and feel for them.

Some animes like these is bound to touch your heart

Its wonderful. don't know why didn't anyone liked it?

130 Corpse Party: Tortured Souls

The anime was actually four episodes long. The game didn't have as many deaths but the anime just decided to put more in which I thought was unnecessary. The live action movie did that too. The ghost girl without a head was seven when her head was chopped off. I'm sick of the blaming of Naomi on Seiko's death when people don't understand that she was stressed seeing her best friend hanging. It can be hard to handle the situation people. Also people are blaming Ayumi for the deaths when she didn't know that the charm would lead her there. In Blood Drive when she found out she could revive them she wanted to do it so bad but only to find out that she was tricked and couldn't revive them but bring back their memories. The hate on Satoshi is stupid because people think he's a wimp but really isn't, it was only in the beginning when he was acting scared. If he was a wimp then he wouldn't have joined the others in Book Of Shadows since he was the only one that knew what would happen if they ...more

If this was a more popular show it could easily take first. It doesn't just pull on your heartstrings, it rips them out of you and shreds them to pieces as you watch. Its only 6 episodes guys. Spread the word

This should be FIRST I cried for years

131 Corpse Party

My first thought after this was,"WHY," and I couldn't sleep. Then I told my friends about it at school and one of them cried. Another hog tied his little sister and made her watch it and she peed her pants.

I actually cried during this anime, but not the sad kind though...I was so scared that I cried, that kind

You will definitely cry in this anime, so much to process!

(SPOILER) Oh my gosh... I cried when one of them suicide... (Not saying who)

Rip pikachu

So sad ;(

133 Freezing

Freezing and freezing vibration are just awesome anoles with a lot of action and feels! Must watch

Maybe it would be sad if they would throw boobs at you every five minutes

Freezing at first is very different considering the behavior of Satellizer but as I watch it I got more and more curious as to what will happen with her considering she needs a Limiter and I knew no one would volunteer to be her limiter rather than Kazuya so I got interested as well as if they will fall in love but sadly the 1st season didn't show any of that but still relieved because they got closer.Now. for the 2nd season I was surprised with Satellizer's history with this brother and I got very upset with it and I became really interested as to how she will overcome that and still continue to be closer to Kazuya. This anime is a good anime, definitely will recommend to other people for it is different but it actually got my attention and I loved it!

137 Kirai x Suki

Rima's twin brother dies in that cursed house because he wanted her to be happy with Kei, how sad isn't that? And then she committed suicide leaving Kei alone ;-; I died so many times


Rima and Ren started in a new school, really deep into a forest. When Rima wanders off she sees this boy Kei and he is next to a dead body. She gets scared and runs off but then she meets Kei at her school and he tells her a secret...

Basically it's drama, fantasy and romance it's so beautiful there are 24 episodes and a movie plus 3 Ova's and they might be making a new season about Kei called "Kirai x Suki: Hajimete no kisu" which will be about a few years before :o watch KxS!

138 Serial Experiments Lain Serial Experiments Lain Serial Experiments Lain is an avant-garde anime series directed by Ryutaro Nakamura, with character design by Yoshitoshi ABe, screenplay written by Chiaki J. Konaka, and produced by Yasuyuki Ueda for Triangle Staff. It was broadcast on TV Tokyo from July to September 1998. The series is influenced by more.

I seriously just saw the first episode but the theme tells most of it, and the story of lain is that people in a school get emails from a girl WHO KILLED HERSELF by jumping of a tall building because of bullies

Sad story, depressing ending and frightening conclusion from the entire show.

139 H20 Footprints In The Sand

This anime tells us that we must accept death no matter what and If you accept it good things will happen.

This anime deserves more attention as it was pretty sad.

Okay, this is REALLY REALLY sad, I just finished it :'(
But it has a really happy ending!

This is the saddest anime I ever saw

The anime follows the daily lives of Konata Izumi, Kagami and Tsukasa hiiragi, and Miyuki Takura. The show is best known for the cute "moe" characters. The target audience is shouen.

Hey! Its sad like when (spoiler alert! )...Oh wait there is no plot so there is nothing to spoil, forget it. It ain't sad

The saddest part was when they tried to explain which side of the chocolate cornet is the head

One of the stupidest animes ever

It's not a sad one. It's a funny anime which is about the every day life of a group of high-school girls.
And it's not stupid. It's funny.
