Unpopular Endings You Personally Liked
Posted 9/26/14 , edited 9/26/14
So the series you love has finally ended. There's been a lot of buildup, anticipation and even nervousness to how "the finale" will play out and it has finally happened. It is the last episode, the final chapter. The complete ending of a franchise, the end of the movie set. And well...

Everyone hates it. They simply loathe it. They wonder what the writers have been smoking to come up with the bullshit they call "the end". Years of fandoming, dreaming, yearning has completely gone up in smoke and the result is a catastrophe. It's outrageous, despicable - the hatedom is intense, you see articles of disappointment flooding the internet for week afterwards. It is all everyone can talk about. Except for one thing.

You liked the ending. Loved it even.

Unfortunately, you're the absolute minority - the minority of the minority. Everyone thinks you're as batshit crazy as the horrible writers, you've lost all rational sense; you are just going for the "it sucked, so I loved it" hipster vibe. You get a load of nasty emails, death threats; evil looks from passerby's and pages long replies as to why you're in the wrong. But you honestly really get the ending; you're pretty pleased, you love it and you're happy with the way things have turned out.

So spill: what are the unpopular endings you personally liked? Anything goes, as long as the series is complete. Use spoilers when saying why you liked it.

I'll start. I really liked the ending to The End, the final book in A Series of Unfortunate Events. Yes, the infamous ending that to this day is simply loathed. No, I am not trying to be "unique".

The ending of The Last of Us was controversial but it will probably have a sequel because it was a great game.

...Did you read the topic? Post an unpopular ending YOU liked when not many OTHERS liked it. And say WHY you liked the ending despite popular opinion saying otherwise. Don't just name random controversial endings >_>

the very ending, that is. I don't think I've talked to anyone who has liked it. But I thought it was very fitting for what everyone went through.

Agree with the spoiler part now that I think about it.

Blast of Tempest ending was so frustrating i feel like i get brainwashed.

The original NGE ending, the ending of Mirai Nikki (the OVA ending is GARBAGE), Oreimo, and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun.

I don't think I'm the only one who feels this way, but rather I'm just a part of the minority.

I've always loved all three books, but I really like the ending for Mockingjay. As a person who reads up on actual war history, what the author described in how the characters feel and the setting can be seen in many actual events. That is how war is. People you love die, they suffer and they never will truly recover. What you once had is gone forever.

The ending was very touching, and very bittersweet. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I loved the ending of Lost, and was actually extremely surprised to hear that a lot of people hated it.

For anime, I feel like the ending of Hyouka gets a lot of hate for just how uncertain and inconclusive it is, but I feel like given the thematic content of the anime, that's the perfect place to leave it.

I seriously loved the ending of Oreimo. I wouldn't really say "it sucked, so I loved it." I'd say more like, it was one of the greatest trolls of all time and there are not many things that I enjoy more than a good troll. This is the kind of ending I'm fully expecting from Bleach and Naruto and I'll be rather disappointed if I don't get it, but the great thing about this ending is that I never saw it coming. As I write my thoughts down, perhaps it was the surprise factor that gets me. I hate it when I can see something coming.

Mirai Nikki, never saw that one coming... Well I kinda figured parts out but still, wow. Also, a lot of people I talk to hate the Soul Eater ending in the anime because it doesn't fit with the manga, but I think it's decent. Yes the manga was amazing and I would have loved to see the series continue, but...
