Post Reply Would you like to see more animes take the school days/ bad ending route?

I still remember when I was a noob and that traumatized me for a week;; I'm not a pro. but I matured enough to watch similarities or worse than that; so I guess it wouldn't matter either way

I want more 'Texhnolyze' type of endings. Heck, '5 Centimeters per Second' endings are also pretty good.

The "bad end" route usually just means characters are a bit more honest with their feelings, or portrayed more like actual human beings, but thus necessitating audience-insert reprisal either through action of a character or deus ex machina, which generally leads to an interesting story but an unsatisfactory (aesthetically BAD) ending to appease otaku.

So no more bad end routes until the industry changes to give creators more freedom.

Eh, I think there are plenty of anime out there with dark/bittersweet endings. If even more did, than good endings would be rare. I myself hate angsty, depressing endings. If it wanted a depressing story, I would just turn on the news. Anime like School Days I would have preferred the main character just get his arse kicked and shown for the piece of scum he was. But then, I'm not against dark and depressing endings, I just avoid those anime/tv shows/etc.

I wouldn't mind a series where say the bad guys win.. the world ends. Something of that sort would be pretty awesome if it were done right(most aren't though). School Days however should be erased from the existence of the universe as it makes me want to rip my own eyes out.. cringe-worthy, terrible & traumatizing. Just my opinion though.

I want to see how Assassination Classroom is going to end. The manga already showed a plot twist and a dark backstory.
Hopefully AssClasswill end well with all of the students graduating and showing their future and older selves in the end. For example, Nagisa could become Class 3-E's teacher in end, replacing Korosensei.

Dark routes are uncliche most of the times and give seriousness to an anime or manga

look at Madoka, im pretty sure that if ep3 hadnt happened, nobody would speak about it..

to answer the question: yes

I tend to like bittersweet endings every one in a while. Like the ending of "Nobunaga the Fool".

Bad ending? Yes. School Days is trash though...no anime should strive to be like that.


Ever.
