Saddest Anime Death (Spoiler Alert if you not watched Clannad: After Story)

This is one of those days where I had to debate with myself. The number anime that broke my heart was death Ushio Okazaki from Clannad: After Story. In this moment in the anime, after losing his wife and finally accepting fatherhood, Tomoya does his best to raise his daughter Ushio and cope with life. However, life is sometimes unfair when Ushio is stricken with the same illness that killed Tomoya’s wife Nagisa. As Ushio gets weaker, she eventually dies in the arms of Tomoya and leaving him alone in this cold world.

At this time while watching Clannad: After Story, I was already going the emotions after the death of Nagisa and I told myself things was going to get better. Unfortunately, it got worse in the anime. After seeing little Ushio die and Tomoya suffering, my heart felt like it was broken into piece. I was at the point of sobbing and with heart aching. I wanted to help them but I couldn’t do anything.

What was the saddest death you seen in anime?
