I carefully selected the 12 sad animes available on Crunchyroll.
Sad animes affect us deeply and they can present us with a light sadness that we cannot get over for a long time.
Like the ones in the ‘sad animes on Crunchyroll’ list, dozens of anime were created to make us cry and sad, but as soon as the anime is over, a sense of relaxation takes over you, relax!
Crying isn’t usually seen as a good thing, because you cry because you have a problem and that’s what makes it “bad”, but crying can comfort us and this ‘sad animes on Crunchyroll’ list has these amazing plot animes that will pull you in and make you cry and then you will experience relief or relief mixed with a feeling of emptiness (: Good watching.
