Most of the time I feel like - "That was it?" because as we all know - most anime shows don't get finished - ugh - and please don't say go read the manga. LOL. Though I wouldn't mind.

i feel pretty devastated when its over and i dont plan but i usually go watch another anime show to distract me.
But sometimes shows end wrong and your just like "what is this"

I feel the same way, if I really liked it I would feel upset and would want more like any other person.
I was watching this drama, I used to always watch it at a certain time and then now that I was finished I felt like " What should I do with my life?" kinda thing, but then I got over it and watched some anime or other dramas.

Anime endings are just like tough sex...
No matter what you watch,
You always end up tired, empty or out of breath.

After I finished Elfen Lied and Mirai Nikki, I thought by myself "what am I going to do with my life now?"
And after several weeks I found out about Deadman Wonderland and many others.
Just lurking around on people's profiles to find nice ones I will consider watching :3

If I really love a series I tend to procrastinate the last couple of episodes since I still want them 'in my life'. There have only been a few series where I couldn't stop watching them till then ended.

Elfen Lied
: found the series on Netflix, was gonna watch one episode before going to sleep, but ended up watching the entire series in one sitting and not getting to sleep till 5 in the morning.

Clannad After Story
: The series chewed me up and spat me out. To this day I still get choked up when I hear the season 2 opening song.

Hourou Musuko Wandering Son
: I really, REALLY enjoyed the story and watched the entire series instead of watching football one Sunday (and for me to miss football is quite a feat).

I also tend to alternate between serious anime and comical anime series.

OP, that's a good point you made about never seeing the characters again, as compared to in real life.

I also agree with what someone else said on the first page... I've watched tonnes of anime now that they start to lose meaning. When this happens, I just take a break for a couple of months and hopefully come back to some gems that really spark my passion again.

I just recently came back from a couple of months away from anime and have come back to some really amazing animes, like 'My Little Monster' and 'Say I Love You'.

OT: It is difficult to find a satisfying anime with a really satisfying beginning, middle and end. It seems strange, but for me, they're very rare. One of the most satisfying animes I ever watched, with an ending that left me feeling happy, was 'Itazura na Kiss'

I wish there could be a way that they would have even just a wallpaper for the holidays for some of the more beloved anime characters every year. I would 100% pay for them. I was literally telling myself while Christmas shopping that if Key would only release something ANYTHING with Nagisa, Tomoya, and Ushio on it I would be happy.

Like someone said before, once a series ends that's it. The only time you will ever really see those characters again are possibly in Manga or light novels if the show didn't have a proper ending (I'm looking at you Spice and Wolf). It's that finality that I find disheartening. My only consolation is I purchase Blu-Rays of all animes that I truly cherish and I go back and watch them. I find it's better than nothing

Thanks for spilling that out, I completely agree with you on that and espicually with that point on about anime character finality. Your the first person to pick up on that as that was one of the reasons why I set up this post because there's nothing sadder than a brilliant character that you adore but you know you will never see again.

That's where the cycle begins again. Wait and pray for OVAs, specials and movies or start another anime series to distract you from that emptiness and depression.

Well said mate

I'm have not been very active on forums before, but i get the feeling that many people have watched Clannad. It's my favourite series of all time, and seriously get chills down my spine just thinking about the series. I dear not rewatch it, though i would probably need to watch every episode without taking a break. And then just end up feeling empty afterwards.

OT. I think that OP's idea to why you feel so "empty" after ending a anime is spot on. I hate finish an Anime, so i always move on to a knew. Anime Addiction ftw!

There are a lot on here that has left me in tears at the end of the series like H20 Footprints in the Sand, Anohana, and a few others. The one I really liked at the end was De Capo Second Season that had a great ending especially after you finish season one see the IF version. Best endings I like are those where its a confirmed happy ending not a floating maybe it was maybe it wasnt like Ano Natsu de Matteru had and a few others do the same.

The only series' that actually made me cry tears of happiness would have to be Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist, and Rurouni Kenshin. I must say, it's a pretty good feeling of success and joy. (: I don't think I'll find any other series that'll have that effect on me. lol.

Angel Beats is just one of these shows that have managed to invoke these feelings, so good
I feel like this after finishing good anime

Angel Beats! left me feeling particularly hollow

On the other hand, I feel like this after managing to finish bad anime
