30-Day Anime Challenge: Day 12:  Saddest Anime Scene 

Even though I watched this scene over a year ago it seems like it’s too soon to be talking about it…

Naruto, Studio Pierrot

I think the saddest anime scene would have to be Minato’s and Kushina’s death in Naruto Shippuden.

Goddamn – that scene had me sobbing.

That scene was so well done, especially since you knew they were going to die, but you end up crying anyway.

And you don’t just cry for Minato and Kushina, who lose their young lives only hours after their son is born, but also for Naruto, because he grew up parentless, and you can’t hep but wonder what his life would have been like if his parents hadn’t died – if some arsehole hadn’t been greedy to get their hands on the nine tails, and had just left that family alone.

I’ve got tears in my eyes from just writing this post…
