What do you think of these episodes? I feel like killing a cat to be quite honest. Especially when you know the next episode is gonna be epic as fuck!

Share your thoughts! What anime(s) do you think has the best episode cliffhangers? Which ones left you trembling in anticipation for the next episode?

My pick goes to Gintama. I haven't been this excited for the next episode (ep 212) since forever! Not to mention I actually cried during the last minutes of episode 211. I'd kill a cat or two just to see 212 right now.

Well if it wasn't for cliffhangers the broadcasters/creators wouldn't be able to keep the audience to keep coming back for more. Although it does suck when there is a good episode and the next thing you know its over in a flash and you have to wait a whole week.

Hmm I say Gintama when it gets into the serious arcs, 07 Ghost, and basically a lot of action series out there do this.

Panty and Stocking w Garterbelt, and Eden of the East are two recent animes with epic cliffhangers I'm left in despair! Still waiting for season two of P&SwG and I'm trying to find the Eden of the East movies...

Yea I hate those!!
But it gets me excited for the next episode, which isn't bad :)
I would say most successful action adventure animes all have these cliffhanger episodes at one point. ^_^

Honestly, I don;t remember many cliffhangers because I mostly watch completed animes so I find out what happens right after the cliff hanger.
But~ I'm watching Blue Exorcist and damn those cliff hangers are good >< I'm just like come on!! I have to wait another week to find out what happens next??!?!?!?!!? T^T

Code Geass refused to not have a cliffhanger ending for about 90% of their episodes, and most of them were well done and left me anxious for more (though they probably went too far with how season 1 ended ). My favorite is probably Jupiter Jazz Part I of Cowboy Bebop which ends with Spike shot by Vicious' henchman and left for dead.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka. You've to wait for 2 weeks for the last episode. Anyone who lurk around knew that on each end of every episode, a debate will erupt and they've to wait for next week's episode so that they can disprove or discredit the other guy.
