Before I begin I should inform that I skipped the 11th part of this anime challenge-Favourite Mecha Anime-as Code Geass is the only Mecha I’ve seen yet and I’ve already told you enough about my feelings for the anime. So today, I’ll be talking about the saddest anime scene I’ve ever seen.
Whenever anyone asks me about the saddest anime I’ve seen, I immediately blurt out “Clannad”. But that isn’t the only sad anime I’ve seen. Angel Beats is not very far behind. And so, I have two extremely emotional scenes from these two anime that had me crying like a baby.
Note: For this post, i’ve excluded character deaths.
Contains spoilers for Clannad and Angel Beats!
Fuko is one of my favourite characters from Clannad. She is so precious and sweet and adorable. And therefore, all that she did for her sister really melts my heart. Distributing carved starfish to everyone and inviting them to her sister’s wedding, only to find them having forgotten her was so sad. Seeing everyone slowly forget Fuko was the most emotional scene for me. I know there are far sadder scenes in the anime, the anime is an emotional rollercoaster filled with tears, but this scene was the most heartbreaking for me. None of the other scenes were able to affect me the way this one did.
The graduation scene was so beautiful and sad. In fact, the entire episode was absolutely bittersweet. Everyone thanking each other and reminiscing all their time together, before slowly obliterating. I can’t even put to words how much i loved that scene for its sheer sadness and beauty. I am the kind of person that hates goodbyes. If there’s anything that i hate the most in the world, it’s goodbyes. And therefore this scene, where they all bid their goodbyes to each other, affected me emotionally. I really can’t say anymore about this scene. It was so nicely portrayed and the soundtrack was wonderful. Indeed, it played a huge role in my opinion of the anime.
What about you guys? What do you think about these scenes? Leave me a comment.
