The ending of Gurren Lagann pissed me off. I wouldn't say it's ostensibly bad, but what happened to Simon and Nia annoyed me.

Nakaimo has the most pointless ending ever.

I didn't like the ending to Rosario + Vampire Capu 2. Jeez you made your choice, the anime is over, announce your choice. I know it's because the manga was still going, but that was ridiculous. Conversely, I don't have a problem with the end of Sekirei.

Imma maybe get myself in trouble here and actually go with Cowboy Bebop. Not really for what happened so much as that well the story to the whole show ends with... a Spike focus arc. As a story its fine I guess, as a finale I find it distinctly meh. Probably because I don't feel it provided resolution for anyone but Spike.

Original TTGL ending is way too cold, but the movie version fixes that up nicely so I just substitute that.



I can totally respect that reason for not liking Cowboy Bebop's ending. Faye's development at the very least should have had some kind of resolution.

I didn't realize the TTGL movie has a different ending. I guess I'll have to watch it now, since I love that anime.


Its not "different" they just do a better job of working you up to it so the "ha-ha no you don't get a perfect happy ending" factor feels more natural.

I'd say Aldnoah Zero. They just seemed to have lost track of what actually made the Anime good and gave it a really generic ending. Not deserving of a series of that caliber.


Man, I've already forgotten how it ended. All I remember is they borrowed part of it from X-Men. -.-

Hunter X Hunter. So many loose threads at the end. The whole thing felt incredibly rushed and anti clamatic.


Well technically HxH isn't even finished yet, I wish it would just continue already. :(

Back to OP, I'm gonna have to say Soul Eater had the worst possible ending I've ever seen. That final fight seemed like it would be pretty cool, but the way the dude broke down (it was so bad I don't even remember his name) and made it piss-ass easy for Maka to defeat him was just terrible. It was as if they just said fuck it and lets give the worst ever fight and end to a series ever.

I'm also gonna have to say Angel Beats. It left so many unanswered questions, the whole series just felt rushed and not much was explained.

Technically it hasn't ended, as it will return in late September.

I know plenty of bad anime with bad endings, but I feel like that's cheating so I'm trying to come up with a few series I enjoyed that still had a shitty ending.

Before I read the Manga I would have said Elfen Lied, but honestly after the clusterfuck that was the manga's ending I almost prefer Elfen Lied's anime ending.

Zeta Gundam, probably my favourite Gundam anime ever, but the ending looked as if Kill 'em All was just trying to live up to his namesake by killing off some of the crew.

Original NGE ending has been mentioned to which I agree completely.

Man that's about it. I've seen weak endings, but as far as the 'worst' not really applicable unless the anime itself was already a failure from the start.

I read somewhere awhile back that Angel Beats was supposed to have been a 24 episode series (like basically everything else that Visual Arts/Key has ever done), but the network cut it back to 12 at the very last minute.

Not sure if that's true or not, but it would explain an awful lot about the series if it was... (and at 24 episodes, it could have been one of the greats... ah well.)

I will just say all anime has bad endings. I have yet to see one that ends well. The main issue is that there's a lot of great material, and then the authors then just stop, or they don't want to stop, or they have to creatively figure a nice soft landing for the impending fall that you just jumped of a 20 ft building, and you need a nice pillow to cushion the landing from that story.....

Martian Successor Nadesico? Sorta. They did a video game sequel, followed by a movie. As in, to understand the movie you had to have played the game or at least read a plot summary. Irritating as hell. The movie unfortunately doesn't really wrap up the series either. Apparently there were plans for a second season after that, along with a second season of Stellvia, but both were scrapped - supposedly due to internal difficulties at the production company.


I did watch the movie and didn't like it because it for some reason they tried to make it a serious anime and not a comedy. I never heard of the VG sequel maybe I'll check out the youtubes. Thx.
