Top Ten Saddest Anime Songs

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Sasori's Theme - Naruto
202 Shissou - Ouran High School Host Club
203 Blue - Cowboy Bebop
204 Recollection III - Bleach Diamond Dust Rebellion
205 Call Your Name - Attack On Titan

Its such a good song, and the scene it played through was so sad.

206 Minna, Zutto, Issho. - Azumanga Daioh

The series is a very funny, ha ha one, but then we get to the last episode, and this is the last song that plays in that episode, right before the credits. This song plays as you see the girls walking away, and then you never see them again. I cried when first watched this scene. Even today, it still makes me sad.

207 Okaasan No Uta/Mother's Song - Wolf Children
208 150 Million Miracles - Summer Wars
209 What Never Changes - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
210 Pergo Pugnare - Puella Magi Madoka Magica
211 Sagitta Luminis - Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Madoka's final theme on episode 12, when she finally decides to be a magical girl. When she made the ultimate sacrifice. Still sad. Not only It reminds me that is the final episode, But also reminds me of how much Madoka has went through. She wasn't fighting or anything as everyone is "doing It for her". But she saw her loved ones die and she finally decides that she doesn't want anyone else to suffer, she wants them all to smile, until the very end. But at the end, she was forgotten as only Homura and her little brother remembers her. Sad series, but It's quiet great! - MLPFan

212 Predestination - Fairy Tail
213 Natsukage - Air
214 Dango Daikazoku - Clannad

I'm surprised to not see this in the top 5, although, I won't argue with it because I agree that they're depressing as well. In my opinion, Dango Daikazoku on it's own isn't really sad. If someone heard it, they would find it adorable. What makes it sad are the memories that it leaves behind. I'm pretty sure that after watching Clannad and Clannad After Story, this song brings back the sad memories that was Clannad. None the less, this song is awesome

Clannad is probably the saddest and most realistic anime ever. Why? Because the story in Clannad is real and somehow, you feel like you can relate to it. Friendship, Love, those are what we are experiencing everyday in our daily life. And the memories we obtained from them, is priceless. Although Dango Daikazoku seemed to be a song that is not really sad, it fits the anime perfectly. I don't think I can think of any other song that suddenly reminds you of the characters and their stories in Clannad. Overall, Dango Daikazoku is a very beautiful song.

Before, I started to search for anime's sad soundtracks and I came to this site. After awhile, I watched Clannad because it was rated as the saddest anime (in this site). First, I was so suprised this song isn't listed in the top ten. Then I thought about it back. Yes, this is not a sad song. It is a beautiful song. What make me sad every time I hear this song is the memories that are wearing this song as its mask. You will know the feeling when you watch every episodes of Clannad; season 1&2. Basically, I have other anime's song that are sadder than this (for me) but I rated for this song because I think this song does not deserve being in the 20th place.

I'm really surprised. But, in another way, I can understand why people don't found it very sad : if you just look at the song on YouTube, it will annoy you. BUT, if you wanna go further, watch the anime, you'll found that song very sad, and especially and After Story. It's my case, but I'm far to be the only one. In fact :
First time : Oh my God, what's that s**t?
Some times later : Please, don't tell me I'm loving it?
At the end of Clannad : That song is just pure sadness.
