What is the saddest song you've heard in an anime?

It seems to me that many of the songs listed here do indeed tug at the heartstrings (mine included), but many were because of the circumstances in which was currently happening as they were played that has a strong impact on how I perceived if the song was sad. There is one song that comes to mind that is in one the most upbeat of a series episodes and still always manages to wipe me out. It comes from Kore ha Zombie Desu ka and "sung" by Eucliwood Hellsythe is "Sugao" "actually performed by Midori Tsukimiya". Not only is this song one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs in anime, it gives Yuu a brief moment to verbally (and emotionally) express her feelings without all hell breaking loose.

AnoHana ED still gets me every time.

Just try and read these lyrics without tearing up.


That ED for Anohana... I don't know if there are words to describe that song after you watch it. Fits the anime beautifully though.

The opening of AnoHana is pretty sad, too, in its own way. Unjust Life, My Song, and Ichiban no Takaramono are up there for me, as others have said, but one song that deserves mentioning is the OP for Little Busters! Refrain, especially compared with the OP for the first season. The first season's lyrics were things like "Two people is lonely, so a circle of us joined hands" and "We can overcome it, and it will make us believe" but Refrain's lyrics are things like "Not everyone can be happy. The gods just roll their dice and laugh" and "It's just like a festival, it just makes me feel lonely" and it really hits you with the music.

Oh, dude, totally that song from Elfen Lied...um....Lilium:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca0iDg1_YYM

Edit: And if you don't recognize that anime title, or have never seen it...you NEED to watch it. Elfen Lied is a necessary watch no matter what genre you prefer of anime. Just like Berserk, Hellsing, Vampire Hunter D, Akira, and Ninja Scroll. Yeah, dating myself here.

The feels from just opening the video for a couple of seconds. Haven't managed to listen to this song fully yet without crying a bit, and it's been 5 years since I watched Clannad now.


lol I I second this so much

May not be the saddest song, but the lyrics/anime/melody just make it such a melancholy song.
