Top Ten Saddest Anime Songs

The title says it all! Which songs in anime are truely the saddest?

The Top Ten

Sadness and Sorrow - Naruto

The saddest song ever, it makes me cry every time a heard it.

So Beautiful, I tear up every time... Naruto just makes everything sadder with it's beautiful music... ;-;

Naruto is also one of my favorite animus. Sometimes I daydream in class about him.

It made me cry, I don't know

Ichiban No Takaramono - Angel Beats!

This song explains everything about this anime like how the laughter of everyone is your most precious treasure because no one is there anymore.

Absolutely beautiful- it really makes you realize that life is worth living, and just makes you feel the emotions of the characters as they disappear and watch loved ones die, but they still keep trying for revenge on their god.

Nothing to say, it just explains the anime in a minute.

Throughout the years, though it has lost its previous charm, when hearing it I reminisce about my school years, back when I still knew the joys of laughter and friendship. This song is the last tie I have with my former friends, as we bonded, young and innocent, over our mutual love of anime and manga, only three years ago. The present is different than the past; sometimes, late at night, I can still vaguely picture the beautiful face of the girl I once loved, the memory of her becoming my most precious treasure.

Elfen Lied - Lilium

This is the saddest and best sad song in the entire universe. I love it so much I want this to be played at my funeral.

One of the best anime, you will cry if you watch it and listen the song its amazing!

That's so true I got depressed for months specially the ending is so sad the song is even sad good anime

This song is so beautiful and sad. In fact, I'm listening to it right now. As I type this. The lyrics are great, this song is definitely one of my favourite anime openings.

I just finished the anime last night. This song makes me cry every time!

Give Me Wings - Evangelion 2.0

I like it a lot

I CRY every time

supa sad


Aozora - Air Aozora - Air Cover Art

This song is beautiful. It played at Misuzu's death. It's really touching.

Spoilers guys damn

I watched Air and I'm super sad when Mizusu died in her mother (the mother who adopted her and been taking care of her after 10 years). And the song makes it even depressing! Gao *sobs* Gao! *cries dramatically*

Can't help but cry whenever I hear this song.. T_T

Fairy Tail Main Theme (Slow Version) - Fairy Tail

This anime shows you one of the most important things in your life like the power of friendship and love

Hearing this reminds me the saddest moments and deaths.

When I heard the slow version of this song, I suddenly felt sadness. It is an absolute contrast with the normal one. At first, I thought Fairy Tail is just an anime that is meant to be funny but as the story progress, it is not like what I thought.

This show tries to be funny but it is not, This show tries to have good action but it doesn't, This show has an amazing sad song and it is one of my favorite anime, that's how good it is

Afterglow - Kanon Afterglow - Kanon Cover Art

So beautiful.Every time I hear the song,it makes me sad,it was so touching and remembering

Sis Puella Magica! - Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Even that I don't know what language It is, It's still a great song. The longer version was sad too. Especially on the piano part :'( and the chorus

This anime was one of the best I've come across so far, and this song is part of the reason. It's so beautiful.

This anime had 1 of the best soundtracks ever and made Madoka even more emotional.

This anime is very underrated, but the soundtrack is absolutely beautiful and this is my favorite song.

Soundscape to Ardor - Bleach

This songs is about Rukia that on period it should be the first song up here and Elfen Lied to and did paella magica that's it I love rukia she my second favorite

It's Just Amazing (Anyone Who Says It's About Rukia, Shut Up, It's About Orihime)

This song is perfect it sad for Rukia bleach has a good meaning

This was the saddest song I have ever heard. I cry every time I hear this and It makes me feel really torn apart. Completely the saddest ost I have ever heard and I really like it.

The Servant of Evil - The Story of Evil (Vocaloid: Len)

I love Vocaloid, but their saddest song, in my opinion, is Last Night, Good Night (Hatsune Miku)

This should be the first saddest anime, it's so damn sad

It made me cry.

It's not anime but still really sad

The Contenders

Everytime You Kissed Me - Pandora Hearts (Lacie)

This is one of my favorite anime.. and once I've heard this song it feels like a nostalgic and sad times are belong to those whose have gone..

The saddest manga. Watch it. Cry. And understand the depth and meaning behind the song.

It isn't the saddest song, but surelly in my top five. It sound amazing and make me think about all the saddest things of this manga.

Such sad song!

Ihojin No Yaiba - Sword of the Stranger
Krone - Guilty Crown

All of the songs in the Guilty Crown OST is beautiful, even the overall plot and art of the anime is beautiful. The harmony of the violin and piano can just simply break you down to tears...

A beautiful soundtrack, making you relive those moments of happiness and sadness Guilty Crown gave us.

Actually a great OST. Fits the anime very well and suitable for any type of environment

It has a nice tune and the melody is very calming and peaceful I love it

Kaishou - Gankutusou: The Count of Monte Cristo

My Forged Wedding Soundtrack 4 - My Forged Wedding (Instrumental)

Yamato wedding bells when MC thought he was going to die

Fuyu No Hanabi - Kanon Fuyu No Hanabi - Kanon Cover Art

It's great

Unjust Life - Angel Beats

It conveys all the emotions that were felt during the whole season and condenses into a single track. It carries both its hope and joy as well as sadness and longing that the main characters feel at the end.

Amazing song, so beautiful, makes me cry every time I listen to it

Wow! It's an awesome song... And sad too.


Where the Lights Are - Fist of the North Star: Raoh Gaiden
The Guts to Never Give Up - Naruto Shippuden

Whenever I listen to this, it makes me so sad, and reminds me of Itachi's death by Sasuke.. Aww, I'm sad now.. Thanks for that Naruto! I am now upset


Secret Base - Anohana

Yes exactly, the "Secret Base" song of Anohana is really something really beautiful, it's making really a sad effect after watching the series, and when reading the lyrics it's just touching

It just reminds me of the ending of Anohana especially with its beautiful lyrics, marvelous tune, and other synonyms for awesome tone. Listening to it will bring you the feels deep in your heart

The lyrics so well composed. The anime so well made. Every time I listen to this song, it brings tears to my eyes.

Hearing it made me cry I don't know why but it is a song that reminds me of leaving a childhood behind.

Tori No Uta - Air Tori No Uta - Air Cover Art

I listen to this song and every time I just feel peacefulness and sadness...

Puellla In Somnio - Puella Magi Madoka Magica

I think Inevitabilis, the piano version of this song is sadder but whatever, this one's really good too.
