23 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


24 Tori No Uta - Air

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

25 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.

26 Shinji No Uta - Inuyasha V 1 Comment
27 Princess Melodies / Star Locket Song - Sailor Moon

I really love this song. It has no words, but you can feel the emotion flowing from it. You can make up a story for it, or you can use the real one. The real story is this:
Princess Usagi gave her beloved prince, Mamora, a locket. The locket had been passed down by moon royalty for forever. That day, Mamora left to fight in a war. The moon kingdom was almost wiped out. In hopes of one day restoring her kingdom, Queen Serenity used the last of her power to send her royal court, daughter, and the prince to earth. Now, when ever Usagi hears this locket she is overwhelmed with sorrow, and she cannot remember why. Not even of the lover she almost lost to evil.

Love this song, it goes perfectly with the scene in SM it's played in. They couldn't pick a better song.

28 Soldiers Honour - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
29 Brothers - Fullmetal Alchemist

This song is highly emotional and perfectly captures the Elric brothers' tragic past. This song should be number one!

It is so sad and yet so happy at the same time. It reminds you of the Elric's past, and yet gives you hope for their next victory.

WHAT? This should be in the top 5 if not in the first slot. I love this song, it's impossible to not get teary eyed when you listen to it.

This was so emotional.

30 Requiem for the Lost Ones - Bleach
31 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.

One of the best songs I've ever heard

32 The Place Where Dreams Come True - Clannad

Truly a very sad song which I will always remember and get me right in the heart

Not a single amine can compete with clannad and its OSTs. simply heartbreaking.

33 Brave Song - Angel Beats!

I agree, Angel Beats! Is a really awesome anime and I totally recommend everyone to watch this anime if you haven't and if you have, re-watch it again. This anime totally makes you think about life and how you've lived it. I think it will also open up your mind.

The best song ever with a beautiful meaning. Never show your tears always try to fight! Angel beats is the best anime ever and it will be the best forever.

Very very very touching and sad anime. Everyone should watch it since it make you appreciate your life.

I love angel beats and will always love it. this song will make you cry if u watched the anime

34 Theme of SSS - Angel Beats!

This song is so powerful and meaningful, though there are no lyrics. It contains so much emotion, basically zapping the whole Angel Beats anime into this whole song (other than Ichiban no Takaramono). It is amazing and strong.

Real awesome theme! You should really listen to it, definitely!

Gave me the strength in life. Really powerful.

38 Futari No Kimochi - Inuyasha

This is just the saddest and most beautiful song I ever heard. This is just... Amazing. Seriously, before I didn't know InuYasha and it's because of this song that I started to watch that anime (and becoming one of my favorite but that's not the question).


You know what? Before I listened to this song, I thought Orange was the saddest song (I commented so on many of these). However, my eyes have been opened and I have a new #1 saddest song. I also started watching Inuyasha and am now addicted to it. Kikyo and Inuyasha's forbidden love, Kagome the tragic reminder. The story as Kagome mends Inuyasha's heart after it being shattered by Kikyo. This is about as captivating as it gets people.

Even without any images, this song can hit you right in the heart just by the tone and tempo. Soft yet full with impact

This should be in the top 20 AT LEAST. One of the best ever
