Whether you love a good cry or hate being blind-sided with unexpectedly depressing anime endings, you've probably encountered some seriously miserable conclusions to your favorite shows. These endings can be emotionally meaningful, but if you're not in the mood for them, they can really ruin your day. Let's take a look at some of the unhappiest anime endings to ever come out of the medium. Be forewarned - because we're talking endings, this article will be rife with spoilers, so use your scroll function liberally. 

Some of the most commonly cited anime with sad endings include CLANNAD: After Story, Your Lie In April, Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, Angel Beats, and Cowboy Bebop. There are plenty more where that came from, and each one is sadder than the last. Vote up your favorites - if you can stop crying long enough from all the feels.
