  1. What about "Rurouni Kenshin"? Yeah, I get that they weren't able to adapt the final manga arc, but they shouldn't have then dragged on the anime with an entirely non-canon season and then just ended the final episode with a shot of Kenshin with his family from the manga's distant finale. On top of that, then there's that one non-canon OVA where they just kill off Kenshin and Kaoru at the beginning while ignoring the entire "earn your happy ending" message of the manga!

    Hopefully, we'll eventually get an adaptation of the Hokkaido Arc sequel series to make up for it.

  2. I disagree with most of these. Especially over Soul Eater's woefully unsatisfying ending. Just saying most of the points made about these choices are headscratching to say the least. Plus, I enjoyed the endings TTGL and OG EVA.

  3. I think the hatred from Oreimo's ending is not as much that it went the sibling route itself, but that Kirino was just absolutely awful. Minus the character of Kuroneko, I don't think Oreimo would have been anywhere near as popular for as long.

  4. Digimon 02 literally made the 13 years old me crying, rolling on the carpet and screaming frustratedly.. My ship(s) didn't make it! KouMi (even though they practically looked like a family in the end) and TaKari (were you just teasing and pissing us up TOEI?).

  5. Oreimo ended the way it did because the Light Novel's author, Tsukasa Fushimi
    , was FORCED to make that ending by his publisher. He's said several times he was going to have both Kirino and Kyousuke end up permanently together by having them run off together to get married and never return home.

  6. Eva should be #1, its ending was so bad that people were sending in death threats and this was before cell phones or most people having an email meaning that a lot of these threats were delivered by mail. I remember hearing that the creator went recluse for a while and even admitted that he made End of Evangelion as an F you to all the people that hated the first ending.

  7. There's nothing wrong with the Gurren Lagaan ending. Why wouldn't you put the 2nd attempt at this ending, Darling in the Franxx, that failed in everything you said worked in Gurren Lagaan?

  8. I saw a few and went check check yup terrible then gurren lagann Came up and I was like wuuuuut naw man I liked everything sure they threw the protagonist under the bus one too many times and the whole nia thing but it made the ending very memorable for me in a solid and good way

  9. In defense of Digimon Adventures 02, if 25 years have passed for the first generation of Digidestined, that outcome shouldn't be a surprise because they were kids when they were pulled into the Digital World. Within those 25 years, they matured and changed and their aspirations at the time of their adventure changed too. Maybe TK and Kairi did date at some point, but it obviously didn't work out for them due to certain circumstances that got in the way of their relationship. Matt probably did pursue music but that most likely didn't work out for him either. Sora may have been a tomboy but she obviously grew out of it and over time realized she had a thing for fashion design. It's called "life". Passions and goals change in people all the time.

  10. Except the reason Simon went to become a hermit was to make sure his spiral power didn't go out of control. After all look what happened when he freed humanity and they relied on him for everything after. Then threw him in jail amd blamed him for everything.

  11. I was seriously angry when Tk & Kari didn’t happen (I also think Tai & Sora should have ended up together but I mainly only care about Takari) but what made me the most angry was the legitimate ending with the human and digital worlds. I don’t think everyone in the world should have gotten a Digimon. It just made the CHOSEN Children less special and was just disappointing. (This is just my opinion)

  12. And let's just say the mediocre to borderline disappointing OG Epilogue sequence Digimon Adventure 02 led to the creators splitting the OG Digimon Adventure Timeline via Digimon Adventure Tri. and Tri's Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.

  13. I thought Fairy tail will be there since everyone didn't like it. Don't get me wrong but I love FT and I don't mind about the ending. Its good that the fairy tail: 100 years quest sequel is better than the original.

  14. Gurren Lagann's ending is misplaced on this list. Also, I cannot bring myself to hate the Digimon 02 ending since I saw it as a child, and child me loved that everyone got a happy ending.
