Sometimes in our lives we find ourselves crying on the side due to a situation that has gone beyond our control, or we find ourselves depressed or flustered as to what our next goal is. Perhaps there was a dream we had back when were were in our youth, but now that we’re older reality has started to kick in, and responsibilities have tripled in certain parts of our lives. Sadness is an emotion when all of the feelings inside of ourselves can no longer be contained, and sometimes…its good to let it out. It’s not just us that experience moments of sadness in our lives, anime has had its fair share of ‘Kleenex Moments’ too! Here are five anime moments that will make you reach for your Kleenex box…
5. Koro Sensei’s Death – Assassination Classroom
We knew it was going to happen eventually, but when it did most of us had that box of Kleenex in our hands. Koro Sensei was the best teacher those student junior assassins could ever have; even if his plan was to destroy the world should they fail to kill him.
4. Chiaki’s Execution – Danganronpa 3: Despair Arc
This moment is far more brutal in the anime than the actual game itself, and boy did it hit fans hard when they had to watch it. Chiaki was a fan favorite of the 77th class of Hope’ Peak Academy, but when Junko came to town she became the final piece of her plan to bring despair upon the world. Dropping her into an underground labyrinth full of traps and laughing at her expense, the strawberry-haired witch succeeded in killing the last bit of hope the 77th class had left – their beloved gamer girl.
3. Ushio’s Death – Clannad After Story
When someone you love or that you’re very close to dies, it does things to you. When its hard to let go of someone you lost, it can cause that person to experience a deep and dark state of depression. In this case Tomoya suffers from said depression after the death of Nagisa upon giving birth to Ushio, and took up alcohol and cigarettes as a result. Five years later he and Ushio reunite again for a trip, but due to suffering from the same disease as her late mother, Ushio eventually falls unconscious and dies…
2. Alucard’s Past – Hellsing Ultimate (OVA)
Alucard is one of the baddest anime vampires ever, however it didn’t come without a tragic past that made fans feel for the OG vampire. During his youth before he became a monster, he got raped and was abandoned by his parents and was also left for dead. At that time he hated humanity and cursed God for what he had gone through, but not long after he was found by Integra’s father, he became assigned to be her bodyguard and kill any human who dare try to cause her any harm. As tragic as his past was, it was the reason why Alucard became what he was.
1. Nina Tucker’s Death – Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
This one hit fans the hardest; as it is the most depressing, most disturbing, and saddest anime moment in anime history. Why Shou Tucker used his own daughter for one of his own experiments is beyond us, but we’re pretty sure whatever happens in this clip is what he deserved (based on the fans, and us). This one also shows just how selfish and cruel the world can be, and that everyone has something worth fighting for.
Ok, that’s enough Kleenex and sadness for one post. Time for something funny!
And on that note, that will do it for this filler post! Until next time guys n’ gals, peace out!
