14 Anime Characters Who Are Intensely Pessimistic

List RulesVote up the pessimistic characters who have the most depressing outlooks on life.

The world can feel like a bleak place, and sometimes viewers want anime that reflects how they feel, even if those feelings aren't exactly fun. Pessimistic anime characters see the negatives in everything, and they expect their lives to end in failure. Some power through anyway, trying their best despite their grim outlook, while others give up, or avoid situations that they think are doomed. Just because characters exist in an animated world doesn't mean that their lives are all sunshine and rainbows.
