Re: Favorite/Saddest Deaths (or near death scenes
When Sasuke takes Haku's attack for Naruto and dies (but doesn't.). Something about that scene is incredibly sad to me, mainly because you saw a character like Sasuke, a complete hard ass at first, cry in his last moments cause he couldn't fulfill his life long goal.
Also when Zabuza requests to be next to Haku when he is dying, and Kakashi honorably placed him next to him. Just these two deaths were heart wrenching to watch.
Asuma's death was very sad for being a pretty minor character throughout. I think the anime did it well. Jiraiya died too honorably for me to think it was sad, he just straight beasted it.
