50. Quote By Nagato From Naruto
“If you don't share someone's pain, you can never understand them.” – Nagato
This quote has gained a lot of recognition over the past few years. And this is because of its connective factor.
We won't be able to understand someone unless and until we share their pain. And my man Nagato is a personification of this idea.
49. Quote By Lucy From Fairy Tale
“When you are miserable, you need something that is even more miserable than you to feel good about yourself.” – Lucy
Even though this might make a few of you guys a bit unhappy, it is still the reality.
We, humans, tend to look down on ourselves regularly. However, what is important to note is that we tend to feel better if we see someone worse than us.
That's our true nature.
48. Quote By Mei Aihara From Citrus
“The two of us aren’t so different. My whole life I’ve desired from others. I felt bitter to the people around me and I closed off my heart. And a heart that lets nothing in will become empty before you realize it.” – Mei Aihara
This quote is connected to the person saying it. Mei has always been a loner and in the process, she has also stopped her heart from taking in those who don't belong there.
However, since she doesn't let anyone in anymore, her heart has become empty. Seems hollow because no one is there.
47. Quote By Mikasa Ackerman From Attack On Titan
“That's right. This world is cruel. It hit me that living was like a miracle.” – Mikasa Ackerman
When you look at the bright side, you realize that this world isn't nearly as bad as you might think.
There are a lot of good things happening in this world that we can't help but appreciate.
Therefore, even if it seems cruel, the fact that you are alive is nothing less than a miracle.
46. Quote By Khamsin From Shakugan No Shana
“Love is never as simple as sharing the same path.” – Khamsin
When people start to narrow down vague concepts and emotions, they end up losing their value.
Khamsin is telling us to understand that love is not just a one-dimensional idea of following the same path.
It is much wider, broader, and better than that.
45. Quote By Sunako From Shiki
“I think death is equally terrible for everyone. Young people, old people, the good, the bad; it’s always the same. It’s rather fair in its treatment. There’s no such thing as a particularly terrible death, that’s why it’s frightening.” – Sunako
Sunako is trying to highlight the importance of death here in this quote. The fact that it can happen to anyone and everyone without any "Reservation" is incredible.
However, that also means that you can't save yourself from it forever. And that makes death so frightening.
There are many chances for you to lose your life every day. Just count them if you get the chance.
44. Quote By Juuzou Suzuya From Tokyo Ghoul
"Why should I apologize for being a monster? Has anyone ever apologized for turning me into one?" – Juuzou Suzuya
Oof. This a quote that many teenagers will be able to relate to. Either way, this quote is telling us about the right life, the said Monsters have to go through.
It's your surroundings that make you the way you are right now. Therefore, those who criticize your current nature MUST also know that they didn't save you when they had the chance.
43. Quote By Koko Hekmatyar From Jormungand
“Remember what you said before? A normal person with a gun will wind up doing something he never thought himself capable of? No one in this world can truly hold himself separate from violence. Guns are literally within reach of anyone. Sadly that’s where we put our faith, in bullets rather than human kindness.”– Koko Hekmatyar
Deep thought by Koko will let you know about the sadness of this world.
The omnipresence of violence in this world is nothing to be shocked about. Here, even if you have kindness, you are still bound to do a lot of hideous activities.
And that is what makes humans so dangerous.
42. Quote By Monkey D. Luffy From One Piece
“Forgetting is like a wound. The wound may heal, but it has already left a scar.” – Monkey D. Luffy
Yup! My man Luffy is spitting absolute facts here. It is important to note that just because an issue has been resolved, it doesn't mean that it is taken care of forever.
It takes so many years to build a reputation and only seconds to destroy them.
And once they are destroyed, they will never be the same.
41. Quote By Mio Nishizono From Little Busters
“There are people in this world who don’t understand that what they consider a harmless prank can deeply hurt someone else.” – Mio Nishizono
Sometimes, we forget that very basic actions in our lives can shake someone forever. Just calling a person, "Fatty", can make them so upset.
And thus we must remember that we have control over ourselves. This world is filled with people you prank their way out.
Unfortunately, it's not always the best answer.
40. Quote By Lelouch Lamperouge From Code Geass
“You will never be able to love anybody else until you love yourself.” – Lelouch Lamperouge
It is important to know that self-care is a necessity in today's generation. If you don't take care of yourself, if you don't love yourself, you won't be able to love anyone.
That's some straight fact that you need to memorize right now.
39. Quote By Jellal Fernandes From Fairy Tale
“The loneliest people are the kindest. The saddest people smile the brightest. The most damaged people are the wisest. All because they don’t wish to see anyone else suffer the way they did.” – Jellal Fernandes
I can imagine you being able to relate to it. Don't worry pal, things are going to get better.
It's because of your kind act of being humble and cheerful that others are having a better life in one way or another.
Keep it up!
38. Quote By Nanana Ryuugajou From Nanana’s Buried Treasure
“If you don't like how things turned out, then try to change it. And then if it still doesn't work out, that's when you can be depressed.” – Nanana Ryuugajou
Here, my man Nanana is trying to motivate us to bring the change we want in our life.
In simple words, if you don't like your current life, try to make it better.
If you tried your best to get a step higher and failed. Only then are you allowed to be upset.
Otherwise, hold your head high.
37. Quote By Keisei Tagami From Corpse Princess
“Do not seek death. But do not fear it either. There cannot be life without death, it is inescapable.” – Keisei Tagami
It is important to understand that death is inevitable. If not today then tomorrow, death is bound to happen.
It will happen and you can't escape it. Therefore, the best is to have the courage to face it head-on.
Only then will you be able to curb the pain after it.
36. Quote By Gaara From Naruto
“Perhaps the companionship of an evil person is preferable to loneliness.” – Gaara
Gaara has always had a lovely childhood that can make you shed a million tears.
And my boy, from his experiences, has realized that evil gets to have a companion because people don't like to be lonely.
It's the harsh reality that everyone needs to face. People will prefer those who are evil against being alone.
35. Quote By Kirito From Sword Art Online
“All this time, I seriously thought that it’s better to die than to live your life alone.” – Kirito
Kirito is one of the most famous protagonists in the realm of anime and manga.
And this quote by him depicts how he considered death to be a better option than life.
But soon he realizes that it's life that takes priority every single time.
34. Quote By Subaru Natsuki From Re: Zero
“I wish people who say: “I’d rather die” would actually die before they say it. So that they’ll know how I feel.” – Subaru Natsuki
Subaru is the one who has experienced more times than anyone else in his realm.
Therefore, he can't stand the idea of Death being taken as a joke at all.
Death is inevitable and painful. Thinking of it as anything lesser will be ridiculous. Never dare to call out death.
You will experience something unimaginable.
33. Quote By Levi Ackerman From Attack On Titan
“The only thing we’re allowed to do is believe that we won’t regret the choice we made.” – Levi Ackerman
The Attack On Titan series has a lot of moments where characters have to face serious dilemmas.
In such situations, the only thing you can do is hope that your decision was ideal.
Pray that you won't regret it. And make sure that you stand with your head held high when you are against your choices.
32. Quote By Baraggan Louisenbairn From Bleach
“Humans die. Animals die. Plants die. Even soul reapers die. It’s the arch of the universe. Everything that comes to life eventually ceases to exist.” – Baraggan Louisenbairn
The story of soul reapers that exists in the realm of Bleach tells us about the idea of Death.
It is bound to happen and no one can stop it. Try your best and you will realize that this Monster is not something anyone can stop, not even the ones who created it.
31. Quote By L From Death Note
“Being alone is better than being with the wrong person.” – L Lawliet
The genius L has given us a vital piece of advice to take care of.
Being alone is better than being with the wrong person. And this is because when you are alone, you are not going to take an incorrect route.
However, if you are with the wrong person, you are calling for incorrect incidents yourself.
Make sure that you never do that.
30. Quote By Kiritsugu Emiya From Fate Series
“They call certain methods of fighting good and others evil, acting as if there were some nobility to the battlefield. Such illusions, perpetrated by heroes throughout history, have led countless young men to their bloody deaths, all for the sake of this valor and glory.” – Kiritsugu Emiya
This quote, by my man Kiritsugu, talks about the act of pride on the battlefield.
He is addressing the incorrect mindset that people have developed towards combat and its categories.
This makes people think of a few methods as holy and others as sinful. And this ideology has only led to the death of countless men in history.
29. Quote By Izuru Kira From Bleach
“War is not heroic. War is not exhilarating. War is full of despair. It’s dark. It’s dreadful. It’s a thing of sorrow and gloom.” – Izuru Kira
People think that war is quite exciting and fun as well as patriotic and everything along those lines.
However, these lines are only said by those who haven't experienced War firsthand. Those who did, know that war is nothing fun.
It is hell on Earth. Believe that!
28. Quote By Kakashi Hatake From Naruto
“Forget about revenge. The fate of those who seek revenge is grim. It’s tragic, You will end up suffering and hurting yourself even more. Even if you do succeed in getting revenge, the only thing that remains is emptiness.” – Hatake Kakashi
Kakashi Hatake, being the man of experience that he is, is telling us about the idea of revenge and what comes because of it.
In other words, those who seek revenge are bound to face tragedy. Nothing good comes from it and you can mark it down to remember.
Never rely on revenge. It won't solve anything.
27. Quote By Crona From Soul Eater
“I bet dead people are easier to get along with.” – Crona
The rough nature of those around us has become so unbearable that people prefer dead humans over them.
Think about it, people have not only started to judge others on baseless criteria but also started some hate moments and things like that.
It's acts like these, that make us question humanity and its actions.
26. Quote By Mondo Oowada From Danganronpa
“It’s okay to feel depressed. It takes time to overcome things. And then, by taking that time, you just start moving forward again. That’s just what humans do.” – Mondo Oowada
Mondo is teaching us about the realism of depression. When you are depressed, you are bound to feel down.
However, as time passes by, you will soon get over it and move forward. This is how it works and this is how it will ALWAYS work.
Have the courage to step forward.
25. Quote By Otonashi Maria From Utsuro No Hako to Zero no Maria
“Cry when you’re sad. Laugh when you’re happy. Get angry when you don’t like something. Depend on someone when you’re depressed. Care for yourself before you care for others. Don’t hate anyone. Be proud of yourself. Stay loyal when you fall in love.” – Otonashi Maria
Otonashi has given us so many beautiful words in just 1 quote. We get to know about sadness, happiness, love, and many more emotions just from this 1 quote.
Goes to show how important it is to take care of yourself. You must prioritize yourself over others.
Only then will you have the confidence to survive in this world.
24. Quote By Detective Conan From Detective Conan
“It’s just like changes in the notes and passports. You may find it hard to adjust to at the beginning, but you get used to it eventually. Time is very depressing after all… Both happiness and sadness fade away with time.” – Detective Conan
Detective Conan is not only a genius detective but also a very wise man. Here, he is telling us about the good and bad days that we have.
And also describes how both of them are over as time passes by. Nothing stays forever and so if you are having a bad time now, don't worry.
You will soon find light in your life. And by soon, I mean very soon.
23. Quote By Photo From Kino’s Journey
“I’ll never resent you, or hate you, or hurt you. Not ever. Not you or anyone. I’d rather die. So If I’m killed, I’ll face my killer with a smile. And I’ll tell them that it’s okay because it won’t be their fault for doing it. It’ll just be that they don’t know any better. I’ll die hopeful, that my death might have helped them… to understand someday.” – Photo
This outlook on life and death is some of the most outstanding things I have seen to this day.
Just imagine having such a mindset. You will automatically stand out from the crowd and have a different vibe yourself.
Photo, you are quite something, aren't you?
22. Quote By Lubbock From Akame Ga Kill
“There is no way to train your heart to be invulnerable.” – Lubbock
Akame Ga Kill is nothing less than a warzone and you know that if you have watched the anime.
And in this war zone, only those who train themselves to the limits survive. However, no matter how much you train yourself, you can never make your heart immune to pain.
It is bound to happen and learn that you can't do anything against it.
21. Quote By Kyouya Sata From Spice And Wolf
“You idiot. You’d gotten yourself up in a tizzy about romance, right? “Love” you experience in that state is just self–delusion. There’s no point in getting depressed over love like that.” – Kyouya Sata
Love and Happiness go hand in hand. If you have a lovely relationship but both of you are not happy, that relationship, that love might not be it.
It is important to know that getting sad over your love is pointless. You must overlook the bad parts and move ahead.
Learn from your mistakes and work to be a better version of yourself. That's how you counter a heartbreak.
Not by feeling sorry for yourself.
20. Quote By Edward Elric From Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
“I’m such a hopeless idiot. All this time and I haven’t grown up one bit. I thought maybe the rain would wash away some of this gloom that’s been following me… but right now, every drop that hits my face is even more depressing.” – Edward Elric
Edward Elric had a nightmare in a past we can't deny that his life was nothing less than hell.
However, he still looks up to life and tries to make the most out of it, every time.
What is important to note here, is the fact that he isn't asking you to completely ignore your dark times.
He is instead, telling us to NOT avoid our past and learn from it. That will give us a bright future.
19. Quote By Vegeta From Dragon Ball Z
“Kakarot… please… destroy Frieza… He made me what I am. Don’t…let him… do it… to anyone else. whatever it takes… Stop him… Please.” – Vegeta
Those who watched the series would remember this emotional moment. Vegeta accepted his reality and asked Goku to finish Frieza.
This scene in the anime was even more emotional and you are not the only one who is shredding their tears remembering this scene.
Man, what a work Dragon Ball Z is.
18. Quote By Hatori Shikishima From Alice & Zouroku
“Are you listening God? The thing is, mom and dad don’t like each other anymore. And it’s my fault for being such a useless daughter.” – Hatori Shikishima
Hatori feels sad and lonely. Not because of someone outside of her life. Nope, it's her parents that are not getting along very well that make her feel like trash.
If you are a parent, never fight in front of your kids. They can take away some miserable messages from it.
17. Quote By Erza Scarlet From Fairy Tail
Those painful memories are what help us make it to tomorrow and become stronger. – Erza Scarlet
As I have said in the previous quotes, to get stronger, you must embrace your past.
Learn from it! Realize what you did wrong and correct it. Only then will you be able to get through the tough times with a smile on your face and grow stronger.
16. Quote By Hachiman Hikigaya From Oregairu
“The past makes you wanna die out of regret and the future makes you depressed out of anxiety. So by elimination, the present is likely the happiest time.” – Hachiman Hikigaya
Hikigaya Hachiman, being the rational guy that he is, tells us that it is the present that we should be the happiest about.
Because if you look into your past, it would depress you. If you look into your future, you will have anxiety.
Therefore it is best to ignore both of them and just look to the present.
What you can do right now is what matters the most.
15. Quote By Kyoko Sakura From Madoka Magica
“The thing I wished for destroyed my whole family. I brought all this suffering down on my family because I made a wish for my dad without knowing what he really wanted.” – Kyoko Sakura
If you guys have watched the Madoka Magica series, you know how serious this quote is.
It would bring tears to your eyes once you see this quote and the individual behind this quote in action.
My God, this series is so good and needs so much more recognition. But I won't tell you what this means for spoiler reasons.
14. Quote By Ogami Rei From Code: Breaker
“If you let yourself get depressed, you’d be making light of the people who trust and follow you.” – Ogami Rei
It is important to keep looking forward in life no matter how hard the days get.
My man Ogami is teaching us that, as leaders, it is our duty to be enlightened even if things don't seem to be going our way.
It is important to have a smile on your face all the time because there are people who are looking for your command.
And a sad look on your face is a matter of depression for them
13. Quote By Rentaro Satomi From Black Butler
“The scariest thing about killing people is getting used to it! When you kill someone and realize you won’t be punished… That’s when people forget all about punishment.” – Rentaro Satomi
Killing someone is a crime none of us shall commit. However, one aspect about those who do commit these crimes is that, once they get used to it, they don't fear punishment anymore.
And that makes them much more dangerous and breathtaking. The act of ending someone's life is no joke.
It's not something you should even think of.
12. Quote By Alcor From Devil Survivor
“Living is anxiety and pain. It's continuing to think, continuing to choose.” – Alcor
You are bound to have anxiety. You are bound to experience pain. It is a part of living.
A part of staying together in one piece. As long as you can choose and think, you will experience these things no matter what.
However, what is great about this is that you get to have the maximum experience possible for yourself.
So it's not as bad as you think.
11. Quote By Mary Macbeth From Blood Blockade Battlefront
“Everyone dies eventually, whether they have power or not. That's why you need to think about what you'll accomplish while you're alive.” – Mary Macbeth
Mary tells us about the importance of living in a rather interesting manner. She is telling us to understand the opportunities available to us as we breathe and teaches us that we should always move forward.
If you don't, then you won't be able to accomplish anything. And that is so much worse than living in pain.
So if you are alive, thank God and grind. That's the only way through this!
10. Quote By Revy Rebecca From Black Lagoon
“Rock, if you think about it, other than this, what do we really value in life? God? Love? Don’t make me laugh. When I was a brat, crawling around in that shithole city, it seemed God and Love were always sold out when I went looking. Before I knew better, I clung to God and prayed to Him every single night — yeah, I believed in God right up until that night the cops beat the hell out of me for no reason at all. All they saw when they looked at me was another little ghetto rat. With no power and no God, what’s left for a poor little Chinese bitch to rely on? It’s money, of course, and guns.” – Revy Rebecca
Revy Rebecca had a miserable past and I don't think it is THAT difficult to understand as you read this quote.
Here, she is highlighting that in life, it is money and guns that matter the most.
It is power and authority that you must cherish in this physical world. Abstract concepts have no meaning or strength to them.
And all of this comes from Revy's first experience.
9. Quote By Spike Spiegel From Cowboy Bebop
"Bang." – Spike Spiegel
Now, this quote might not seem "Sad" to you. However, if you have watched the Cowboy Bebop series, you would know how much value this one word holds.
I won't spoil anything for you right now. All I can say is that this one word is enough to bring tears to any Cowboy Bebop fan.
That's how powerful it is.
8. Quote By Portgas D. Ace From One Piece
“Even if I’m worthless and carry demon blood… thank you for loving me!” – Portgas D. Ace
Another quote that might not seem Sad at first. However, it is important to every single One Piece fan out there.
Again, I won't spoil you but let's just say that One Piece fans are crying this very second.
Yup, it is THAT impactful. I mean looking at this scene on the screen will break you from the core.
And if you don't believe me, you can watch One Piece any day and experience this yourself.
7. Quote By Kaori Miyazono From Your Lie In April
"Was I able to live inside someone’s heart? Was I able to live inside your heart? Do you think you’ll remember me at least a little? You’d better not hit 'reset!' Don’t forget me, okay? That’s a promise, okay? I’m glad it’s you, after all. Will I reach you? I hope I can reach you.” ― Kaori Miyazono
Yet another quote that holds a lot of meaning to the fans who have watched the series.
Your Lie In April is an incredible anime on its own. However, when you look at this quote after watching the show, you would realize how sad and upsetting it was.
But this sadness is not negative. It's positive and motivating. Crazy, right?
6. Quote By Gintoki Sakata From Gintama
“Stress makes you bald, but it’s stressful to avoid stress, so you end up stressed out anyway. In the end, there’s nothing you can do.” – Gintoki Sakata
Gintoki from Gintama is sharing his wisdom on Stress in the quote above. Here, my man is telling us to understand the ground reality of stress and tells us to NOT ignore it.
This is because ignoring stress is stressful in itself. And so, we must never ignore stress at all.
We are bound to have tension in our minds anyway.
5. Quote By Punpun Onodera From Goodnight Punpun
“I always believed that everyone in this world was far nicer and smarter than me. That no matter how unlikeable they seemed to be, they still had a good conscience and had justifiable circumstances for acting the way they did. That’s why I hated myself for being so timid and depressed when I didn’t even have any good reason for doing so. …But now I see that there actually are people who’re despicable in every way and don’t blink twice at ruining another’s life.” – Punpun Onodera
Ok, now Punpun isn't exactly an "Anime Character" but he is just so good that I can't help but put him in here.
And a spoiler warning, don't read the quote if you haven't read the series. However, for those who know what's happening, well you guys are crying already.
I mean it's Punpun, what else were you expecting?
4. Quote By Roy Mustang From Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
“I’m fine, except… It’s a terrible day for rain” – Roy Mustang
This quote from my man Roy Mustang is amazing on some unrealistic levels. If you haven't watched the anime, I can't tell you what exactly happens here but basically, Roy is experiencing fake rain.
And this fake rain is the result of his extreme sadness. What's the reason for his Sadness?
Watch the series to find out. I bet you will start crying as well.
3. Quote By Jet Black From Cowboy Bebop
“Man always thinks about the past before he dies, as if he were frantically searching for proof he truly lived.” – Jet Black
Right before death, it is human nature to look back at the life and ask if it was worth it.
It is that moment that puts a definite end to yourself. And thus, at that moment, if you don't have a great life that you cherished more than anything, then my friend, you lost.
If you don't live your life to the fullest extent, you are wasting it. So Imagine today as your last day and do what you wish to.
2. Quote By Homura Akemi From Madoka Magica
“So how about we become monsters together? And turn this world upside down? So that… nothing bad… or sad… would remain.” – Homura Akemi
This quote is said by Homura Akemi from the Madoka Magica series and I can't emphasize enough how brutal this scene was.
It has the potential to make all of you guys cry to your absolute limit and make you feel shattered.
No spoilers as always but trust me, Madoka Magica can be your best-time investment if you are looking for some incredible entertainment.
1. Quote By Gaara From Naruto
“It doesn’t bleed, but I have been having a lot of pain around here.” – Gaara
Gaara, a guy who had an extremely tragic past, can't seem to feel any blood around his chest.
But still, it is painful! Why is it so? Well, it's because of those around him.
The way they have treated him and his identity make his heart fill with brute suffering.
It's the pain of heartbreaks and tragedy that made him the way he is today.
And let's just say, that every day of his childhood has been NOTHING less than a nightmare.
Without a doubt, one of the saddest things in all of anime. So there you have it, weebs.
These are the Top 50 Sad Anime Quotes for you! I hope you guys got motivated and/or had transparency about your sadness after going through this article.
Thanks a lot for reading and until next time, Sayonara!
