Saddest Anime Series

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Kimi ni Todoke Kimi ni Todoke

I don't know why this anime wasn't on the top 10. For real, this anime made me cried a lot the moment I started watching it. Especially in Episode 6. Seriously...

"I really like this anime, if you love a non-fast romance anime, then this one is good. The characters are perfect, you'll love them."

This anime is really cute and heartwarming :) Love is never based on physical appearance

162 From the New World From the New World

Easily one of the most powerful animations to date. The various deaths, though offscreen, brought either a sense of poignancy, or loss, depending on the character. Quite possibly the most meaningful part of this anime involved the ending, which I think was supposed to question the audience's faulty certainty of who is or isn't the true antagonist.

But this anime isn't simply dystopian, it's more than that. It shows you the very actions of the main characters in response to the world they are thrust into, you get to see them fall apart, build back up again, grow, and die. Every last detail produces such a raw, sharp, honesty, that can't be found in most anime. Shinsekai Yori, dives into something that most adult-themed entertainment will barely touch up on.

So if you want an anime that will provoke a heavy amount of thought, and rip your heart out, look no further.

A truly uneque anime that needs more attention due to its tone and artstyle. Along with that the Dub and Sub are both great and overall it is something else entirely than just a show.

163 Dramatical Murder

I think this anime is kinda sad too especially when they started to talk about their past.

164 Barakamon

This is a fairly new series (fall 2014) and I wouldn't say it's the saddest thing ever, but I was definitely tearing up at times.

165 Mushishi Mushishi

Good anime but not sad. recommended.

Not sad, but rlly rlly good, as some other guy said.

166 Nabari no Ou
167 Winter Sonata
168 Another Another Another is an anime based upon the Novel and Manga of the same name by Yukito Ayatsuji. There also exists a live action movie based on the novel.

I in all honesty found this anime to be really good and really sad! It's also really good if you like horror and I honestly found the ending to be super sad. Another kid dies all the time it's upsetting! The ending is really unexpected.. (In all honesty I guessed it but my sister and everyone else didn't ) but yeah check this one out if you look horror and you want to watch something that'll make you shed a tear..

This anime is full of tension and the whole thing is tragic. The ending is crazy and will hurt to see some main character never get the answers they deserved. In the end no one will still be safe.

169 The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
170 Phi Brain: Puzzle of God 3

All those games and puzzles were full of fun but in the end it was sad

171 Princess Tutu Princess Tutu Princess Tutu is a Japanese magical girl anime series created by Ikuko Itoh in 2002 for animation studio Hal Film Maker. Inspired by ballet and fairy tales, particularly The Ugly Duckling and Swan Lake, the story follows a duck who is transformed into the mythical ballerina Princess Tutu in order to more.

The ending was pretty depressing. BUT it wasn't the actual ending for the series. The creator had said that she wanted to make a season 3 about Ahiru and Fakir. But she couldn't do it for some reason. Most of us think that it's because the series wasn't very popular. - ToukaKirishima

172 Space Runaway Ideon

You probably know how it ends even if you never watched it. And if you don't... Well it ain't pretty.

173 Peach Girl Peach Girl

This didn't make me cry it made me angry the ending made me happy but that's just me

What is the plot?

Not only was it an emotional wreckage, but Momo's been through more than most people could handle. She got a tan from swimming and from that people called her a slut, picking on her, saying she's had abortions, etc etc. She thought Sae was her friend until Sae just copied her and made it look better on herself. It's not as sad as most, but it can bring up some tears

174 Space Dandy Space Dandy

They put this show on here as a joke lol

175 Trigun Trigun
176 Valvrave the Liberator
177 Diabolik Lovers Diabolik Lovers Diabolik Lovers is a Japanese visual novel franchise by Rejet. The first game was released on October 11, 2012 for the PlayStation Portable. Three more games have been released since them with the first two games having been ported for the PlayStation Vita with the subtitle "Limited V Edition". more.

The only sad thing about this Anime is it mere existence. - TopiTaupe

Diabolik lovers is all about Vampires. In my opinion the second season, when this Anime shows there background it shows you the struggle they went throw expectually Kou, Yuma, Roki and Azuna, they are only half Vampires but they all fight for the same thing being Adam. Each Vampire in Diabolik lovers really all fight for being Adam (this happens in season two) The only way to be Adam is to Drink Eve's blood A.K.A this girl named Yui. All the Vampires fight to have Yui, Expectually Ayato. This Anime is Both Sad and Romantic.

178 Ceres, Celestial Legend

Ahh...This anime supposed to be the top-10! This is the saddest anime that I ever watched! You all should watch this anime to...
