My group?
You know how it is, I say alot, but honestly the impression I had at the time was that I saw more than a few people complaining they didnt like that the male MC had turned evil for a good part of S3, they were more than enough vocal about it for me remenber about it (we talking around late 2012).
Internet folk suffer alot from the disease of using such terms too much, when we are just in a rush and want to make a point. xD


Dunno if it was trying to appease the fangirls, but that whole conclusion was too sudden, too much time skips in such a short time and just didnt felt quite right for the DNA of the series, if you compared the earlier part. It felt they played it too safe, when they had the potential to deliver something really different.

You reply was the only one stuff on my bookmark for months, apologizies for my lazyness I get~~

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eccentric_Family
Didnt know it had a LN, MAL usually counts them in too, must be something like Hyouka then. (havent seen neither of the series yet, will see Hyouka next month)

Talking about endings, have you seen Panty and Stocking?
That ending is all but proper, they wanted a S2, but it never happened, which only makes everything worst.
I dont have problem with endings that leave on a climax, leave you hanging and exhilareted to see what is next, as long as a continuation happens.
Code Geass S2 ending the upitome of anime endings for me. Please dont search for it, just the fact of a S3 can spoil it for you.
Dont search anything about it, you will be heavily spoiled and wont have the context to have the proper response to it.

I can get you Haibane Renmei if you want, it isnt hard for me at all, I know the best sources and the best places in the internet to acess all those more hard to get stuff.

Zankyou no Terror? They shoot him, you recall what they were trying to do? The message they wanted to send to the world, that USA sniper in the end still didnt care and shoot him...

That always puts me in the mood for some depressive shit.

I dont want to go too deep at it, you did, and did fairly well, lets just say, most endings like substance, lack impact or meaningfulness to them.
I like endings that exist not solely to end something, but that serve to give certain plot a finish to it, that makes sense for that series, and that can live you say, it ended, and it wasnt something cheap or put in a hurry, we all like proper caring for our endings.
Darling the Franxx, some may call it a proper ending, but to me, it felt bullshit, felt going the cowards way, I felt that they was potential for going for something more unique, but instead they copied pandora hearts and elfen lied ending formula, which mind you made sense there, but just didnt fit with the nature for this series.


"If I had to pick from the type of common endings we do get, besides fully conclusive endings, I'd rather have endings that set up sequels that will probably never happen, over abrupt endings. Original endings can work if done well (Akame ga Kill), but it seems rare to me. "
I cant choose, no one likes abrupt endings, but if they are going to do an ending that leads to a sequel that never happens, please find some other way, I know this is hard to ask, but if a studio knows the situation is dire for a sequel, while they are ending it and seeing BD sales, please just try to have an ending that can fit nicely for a sequel, but that at least doesnt scream, sequel needed ASAP, in itself.

Alot of people hated on Shana III whole premise back in the day, you dont hear the anime much now.
I liked it and that ending was really great, but it could have been better executed.

"But yeah, it really doesn't bother me as much as it may sound like it does.I still enjoy most shows. I just expect to be disappointed by most endings. Expecting disappointment has actually helped me enjoy the endings more when they turn out to be pretty decent lol."
Same here, but you, when the shit is getting GOOD, in your heart, weakness starts to eat you inside, and you kinda start hoping, I want this shit to end great, plz plz... we cant avoid it in the end.

OMG MAL IS COMING BACK
you're the last person I spoke to on my profile so I decided to come give a hi
Playcool May 26, 8:42 PM
So Shirobako goes that far into criticizing anime as a medium... isnt it too risky? It may end up failing into some pitfalls itself.
(havent seen it yet, plan to one day)

Most anime original endings are bad, but I liked the one from Akame ga Kill, so in the end even if you shit on something there will come the day you will actually find yourself in the odd position of getting those words back on you.

Another good point, Spice and Wolf more than most, suffers from this tremendously, though I have started reading the LN before even finishing S1 and at this point I have S2 on hold having already read on the LN everything it would adapt.
But yeah, anime is a business no matter what we may think, money will always have some influence.

Define proper ending... I mean, even for those anime that fully adapt the source material to its completion, sometimes the source material ending was trash too, so either the anime is trash too, or in very rare cases they may manage to improve it on the anime with some extra stuff (dont have any examples, just stating a possibility).

A real concrete conclusion uh, what about Code Geass S2, ignore the fact S3 is coming out, did you enjoyed that left to interpretation ending?
What about stuff like https://myanimelist.net/anime/387/Haibane_Renmei ?
It left alot for the viewers to interpret, some anime manage to do this well and be sucessful.

It wont change, most series out will always become quick cheap fuel to flame up the source sales, that quickly burns out and you are left only with ashes.
You can say that when one puts his time and effort into getting to know a story and a cast, he should be rewarded with an ending that fullfils him, but honestly that is all that everyone always want, yet I dont think writters should always go for this, well done conclusions and be more powerfull and memorable when we dont get what we want, but what we get falls in line with the nature of the series and ends up leaving a mark. We like to be pampered and having it all like we want, but thank good writters sometimes go agaisnt this.
Remenber Zankyou no Terror ending, that scene gave the series overall more meaning, it was the ending that would have fit the best with what the show was going for.

They released this. I never heard yurishi voice act Risa, I can't tell if that is still yurishi's voice or not. but reading the comments, I realize that is yuki (Risa's replacement)
do they sound alike to you?
Playcool May 17, 7:40 AM
I wouldnt say most endings are garbage, but I have to agree about the fact that most endings are handled rather in a fashion that most of the times leaves the fanbase always desiring for more.
Anyone getting on a series for its ending is more probably going to end disappointed, usually not expecting much for the ending and going in for the journey is the wisest choice.
Ako- May 15, 2:29 AM
hi~
by any chance do you know what yurishi is suffering from? i'm curious cuz her voice is lovely
Playcool May 12, 4:36 AM
Are they? It all depends on what you are watching, but I totally dont get that feeling at all.
Bad endings can be great, it is all about the execution of said ending that matters.
Playcool May 11, 2:56 PM
Exactly my point, we cant have the happy ending we want all the time, it gets more impact by getting agaisnt what we want, shocking and moving us.
Playcool May 11, 7:31 AM
Same here but think about it, would it have left as much impact if it ended the way you wanted?
Did you think an happy ending would suit it to be a memorable conclusion?
Playcool May 9, 3:06 PM
Realized you never told me if you liked Gundam IBO or not.

sometimes it feels half-baked, but let's see how it goes down the road.

Thanks for the kind words! There were some key things I failed to mention in the review, but I'm working on my writing.

Thanks, you too! :P
