Saddest Anime Death

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 25 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Saddest Anime Death!

Okay, this one is the hardest one so far because I don’t want to seem heartless by thinking one death is more sad than another. There are also plenty of anime deaths that I have yet to see.

The first anime death that comes to my mind that hit me super hard though is Ushio Okazaki from Clannad.

It was sad enough to see Nagisa die, but to see Ushio as a young child die was absolutely traumatizing.

I expected to see Nagisa die in the series once I learned of her illnesses. It’s something that happens often enough in anime but you don’t often see a child die like that. I ugly cried so hard for so long after that.

Even though, in the anime, no one died permanently, there were more than one depressing deaths. There was Fuko Ibuki, there was Yukine Miyazawa’s brother, Kotomi’s parents, Nagisa and Ushio.

For a slice of life anime that I expected to be more school oriented, Clannad made me cry a lot.

What was the saddest anime death for you? Let me know here or on facebook!
