This time as you people would have already read it in the title we will be focusing ourselves on some of the top anime that will make you people cry. So, I’m sure you people must have come across some sad anime that have made you shed some tears. And as we all know those are the shows or things that stick in your memory for a very long time as I don’t think there’s any other emotion that is felt as intensely as sadness in our lives.
I mean we all can relate to this. Comedy or happiness is something that will amuse you for a while but most of the time in our lives, moments are filled mostly with sadness or tragedy. And we all hold those sad shows very firmly with us for we are the ones facing those sorrowful moments in our lives.
There are plenty of anime that make viewers cry on some occasions one of them that comes to my mind is Naruto which has some episodes that you feel and build a really strong connection to. So without any further elaboration on sadness, we bring you the top anime that are based just on these sad emotions as you might be looking out for some.
Your Lie in April (2014)
Known in Japanese as Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, Your Lie in April is based on a romantic genre that deals with emotional trauma and loss. It focuses on the story of Kōsei Arima, who is a proficient pianist and musician. But things go down hell as he loses his mother and with it, he loses his ability to hear the sound of his piano. His otherwise hearing is unaffected though.
Soon after, things start to change as he meets Kaori Miyazono, an eccentric violinist, who makes Kosei realize that there is a lot more to music than just hitting the notes perfectly. The two of them get along well and Kosei finds himself falling in love with Kaori along the way. But things turn out tragic in the end as we find out about the terminal illness of Kaori which brings their journey to an untimely end. It’s a real tear-shader when Kosei reads Kaori’s letter at the end.
I Want To Eat Your Pancreas (2018)
Yet another anime that is based on a romantic genre is I Want to Eat Your Pancreas. Its story is both heartwarming and at the same heartbreaking.
