Top 10 Worst Anime Endings
The Top Ten
Soul Eater is a great anime and I recommend the manga. However, I cannot stand the ending in the anime. It's such confusing deus ex machina and out of nowhere ploy. Bravery? That defeats Asura, an demon with a godlike soul wavelength. Who can spread madness and fear throughout the world without lifting a finger. The manga had such a great ending that it makes me dislike the ending even more.
Worst. Anime. Ending. EVER. Seriously! It's like they got lazy after they went to that snowy place involved with brew and were like "You know what? It's just going to end like this." And then they gave it a crappy lazy ending. Maka defeated the supposedly awesome Kishin with just"bravery." what?!?! That's it? It was that easy the whole time? They seriously need to redo this anime and follow the manga more closely, like Brotherhood almost.
Soul Eater is one of my favorite anime series. Good plot, good characters, good character development, good animation. It was a pretty good series. But the ending just seemed kind of implausible. Like when Maka turned into a weapon and defeated the Kishin with "bravery." By "bravery" I mean a punch in the face. Yeah, because none of the other characters were brave when they went head first into battle! I don't know, it just made Maka kind of appear to be Mary Sue-ish by the end. I loved the series, I loved the characters, I loved the villains, I love everything about it except the ending.
The whole thing was amazing until the disappointing, stupid, life-lesson based final battle... The Kishin was supposed to be more than this, telling from his battle against Lord Death, but suddenly Maka can defeat him with mere "hope" rather than an actually interesting battle? Seriously. One of the biggest letdowns ever for such a great anime.
I agree, not only is it disturbing but it is also a tragic ending to such a great tale for the band of the hawk for losing their leader and soon their life too just to regain the strength of their leader.
It is truly the worst spoiling ending in anime history.
I agree too, not only is it disturbing but it is a tragic ending to such a great tale for the band if the hawk losing there leader and soon their souls just to regain the strength of their leader.
It is truly the worst and spoiling endings to an anime
It's amazing how fast we can go from mourning over a character's suffering to loathing them. Although the manga continues past this point, the anime ends at this scene.
Manga is still ongoing but the anime is stopped.
The ending felt rushed. It could have been so much better, but all the ending did was make the revolution feel pointless. At least the citizens are happy, right?
I didn't like how they killed everyone but akame. The biggest spoiler was in the name!
This was the anime Game of Thrones Simulator 2014, they kill all the major characters off except Akame.
Let's kill everyone!
Great anime but the ending was more focused on the blood they should have just made it longer and stuck to the manga
Another one of the "What? That's it? " endings that are so prevalent in anime.
Cliffhangers. Why does it have to be cliffhangers?! WHY?!
This show needs a following season
I hated the ending. WHY DID LIGHT HAVE TO DIE?!?! The anime was 10/10 until then, but the last episode alone dropped the rating to 8/10. It was really my favourite anime, sorry death note.
1. L and Light were an incredible pair, being polar opposites in every manner except intelligence. Near and Light, on the other hand, had little contrast.
2. Light's death both went against his character as dignified and collected, and was due to a simple and, once again, uncharacteristic miscalculation that hardly built on the plot in past episodes. If they were going to kill Light, it could have been done in a much more creative manner. This seemed like the producer announced two weeks beforehand that the show had to end, and the writers were just trying to meet a deadline.
*While I was admittedly rooting for Light, if only to extend the series, I would have accepted if they had killed him off while staying true to the show.
The series was awesome and it was sad that L died because he's my fave. After L died the series went downhill I mean I didn't really like Near or Mello. The last episode was pretty bloody because Matsuda shot Light and a ridiculous amount of blood sprayed everywhere, Light was sort of going insane, The latest "KIRA" stabbed himself in the chest and blood sprayed. The ending was really messed up and it was depressing to see light laying dead on the stairs in the credits
Worst ending ever I actually hate this anime because of this ending
A certain certain character died, I was happy
Oh come on, that ending made the anime. It was memorable because it left us in shock after all, and stayed true to the source materiel.
It was bloody and disturbing and also it had the worst logic. Vengeful murder and beheading, It makes me vomit on it. The anime was bad, The ending made it worse (better for few people as the biggest anime jerk got killed).
I am glad that Makoto died in the end.
I just loathed the ending. From day 1, all I was waiting for was for Sora and Shiro to go up against Tet again in the new world they were warped to. However, due to the slow pacing of the anime series, I never got to see it. In fact, it wasn't the main focus of the anime! All I got for an ending was Sora and Shiro beating some fox girl at a game so they could make peace with one of the nations and what appeared to be Sora and Shiro about to go challenge Tet. They could have done so much better with the anime. But with all the Steph sex torture, incest, panty shots, and pop culture references I got, what did I expect? Sigh. Just go watch Sword Art Online instead.
They should have kept going instead of stopping after 12 episodes! Whether you love it or hate it, the ending was nothing but a cliffhanger with wasted potential for a second season.
Glass Reflection was right. All the anime was doing was trying to promote the sales of its light novels by promoting more interest in the series. Damn you, Madhouse!
Good anime, but the ending sucked. They didn't even get to ever fight Tet. They almost did, but it just had to end abruptly with them about to do so.
Unless you've watched the OVA like I did, you're pretty much left with an anime ending that makes no sense.
So in the end he's just floating around in space for like, 500 years with a cell phone that dies.
I seriously don't understand...
Just what happened in the end?
"Newsflash I'm really a demon" like what stocking?! Just ruined it all with insane confusion. Cliff hanger! Cliff hanger!
The ending was a joke
What was with this ending?!? "I'm a Demon'' just like that
...and we will never get a second season
The ending of the series was strange and confusing to say the least. I was not pleased with how it ended, and when I found out that there was a "true" ending in the sequel film I got super pumped. To my bewilderment, somehow the movie ending was even worse than the one in the show. It completely ruined Shinji as a character, and the whole thing seemed like a rush job. It really felt like a huge slap in the face. I'm all for somber endings, but this one just felt unwarranted and out of place.
I hope you're kidding Evangelion has got a perfect ending
Episodes 25 and 26 of the original anime sucked! I understand that Shinji's character development was a big part of the story, but there was way too much commitment to the details of the universe to throw it away. The many re-makes are okay but still don't fully wrap things up in my opinion.
We dind't really get explained how it all ended. It was as if it all had been inside of Shinji's head, and that nothing of it actually happened. The ending is just too open, there's just too many possibilities to consider! :(
I'm looking forward to the movie!
A cliffhanger after several episodes of intense combat, right when you needed that cathartic ending.
Such a great anime series with the great female warriors but ending...? WHY
This needs to be session 2
Until Season 2 comes out, this is going to be on this list.
Thank god season two came out and saved this anime.
Yeah, that War Arc just kept going on with hardly anything interesting. I honestly think the ending was doomed the moment Madara was literally backstabbed. It completely destroyed whatever buildup it had for him, and that was honestly worse than the reveal of Tobi being Obito. Kaguya was a crappy villain who went down without any sort of buildup, Black Zetsu is a terrible antagonist, the Uchiha's are skilled forgiven to the point of idiocy and the epilogue doesn't really tell us how the Ninja World changed, only showing us who effs who.
The ending with Naruto marrying Hinata doesn't even makes sense, I mean, seriously you marry a woman who has been stalking you for most of her life? Ew, if this is Mirai Nikki I can understand because at least Yuno did make an effort and a move on Yuki.
But this is Hinata we're talking about.
I don't hate her but I certainly don't ship her with Naruto (because I ship her with Kiba to be honest), but the scene where she was fighting Pein trying to defend Naruto was the most stupidest decision I've ever seen in my life. YOU ARE THE HEIRESS TO HYUUGA CLAN. If you do die, who will be leading the clan, huh? Then Naruto's promise to Neji protecting the heiress will be wasted. The Hyuuga would probably hate the Uzumakis for god knows how long if she was to be killed.
That is very pure selfish of her to jump in the middle of their fight, showing to them to prove you so-called love for Naruto. Like seriously woman, WHO even does that? You're WEAK, please remember that, ...more
The plot was great, the characters were great, but the ending wasn't good AT ALL.
Firstly, 700 chapters for what?! Honestly, what happened to immature, irresponsible Naruto?! He barely spent a quarter of the series being a child!
Second, how did Naruto become Hokage? How did Sasuke actually get to be freed after what he did? Sasuke should have had his butt thrown in jail for the rest of his life. He's just an emo idiot who isn't represented as anything but that.
Third, the sequel. It was HORRIBLE. The children of all the characters were the EXACT SAME as the originals. Why make them have rubbish versions of the originals with the exact same, if not worse, personality traits as the original characters?
I didn't like the ending at all. If you liked it, go ahead and do whatever, but hey, this is my opinion.
The ending was the most expected of course naruto and hinata were going to get married and have a family and he was going to be hokage Would an orphan having a family not be a good ending? Actually the fans who didn't like the proposed parings are blinded by their own hate. If they usrd common sense they would've figured out that there were going to be future children and the will of fire was going to get passed down to them and naruto would be seen as the new hokage.
As for the final couples it was obvious too. I saw comments saying naruto is action not romance then I saw contradictory comments that naruto and hinata did not spend lots of time together. Of course they didn't...its action not romance you people said it yourself. Kishimoto does not like writing lots of romance his romance was subtle and less grand but still convincing even to non shippers. You don't have to share lots of time to build chemistry that's not a set rule.
The first databook released an old sketch of ...more
I don't blame this anime not having a second season cause the creator unfortunately died but at least have some sort of ending instead of being drugged on a remote island
Needs to be continued now!
Where is the season 2?
We don't even know what happened at the end and the worst part is that the anime doesn't follow the manga directly so there's no way to find out. I'm so pissed.
Yeah, and the manga ending was rushed and not really interesting. Still so many BIG unanswered questions. My main one was who was the guy with the godlike powers the reporter talked to?
(Spoilers! Don't read this comment if you haven't seen all the episodes) The story was excellent. But the ending was terrible. Ahiru after everything she did, gets nothing in the end while two people who doesn't even deserve a happily ever after gets one. The story ends with the words "a new story has begun." It sounds as if there's going to be a season 3 but it's already been around 10 years. Ikuko Itoh herself had said that she already has a season 3 or a spin-off in mind but what's taking her so long? However I really hate the idea of a spin-off. I want Ahiru as the protagonist. Majority of us love Ahiru. A spin-off would not be sufficient for the terrible ending she got. Ahiru and Fakir can't even get married! They can't even become a couple in that state. Ahiru is a duck and Fakir is a human! They deserve to be together. Either Fakir has to turn in to a duck or Ahiru has to turn in to a human.
I hated this ending so much that I was so close to throughing my phone at the wall. I ended up crying because I felt bad for duck 😭
The anime ending is a masterpiece compared to the manga's ending.
The anime ending is good. The manga ending is what is terrible.
THE END is so much out of character I almost cried
All the important characters that made Bleach great went MIA. The fight with the mighty Ywatch went like 'yapping yapping yapping' and done... So many plot holes and contradiction in characters. SO BAD!
Story was utmost cliche. Ending was hasty and childish. Very disappointed after experiencing how much people liked it and recommended it. It ain't that good
I just wasn't satisfied with the ending, they should have gotten married!
(Spoilers) WHY TAIGA, JUST WHY! You could've had a good life with Ryuuji! But you lived with your mom instead!? What the heck Taiga!?
The ending was utter crap. At least the anime wasn’t
I really liked the Anime, but the ending was a major disappointment.
Who was that at the door?
I didn't like that cliffhanger... Enough said.
Goku goes away to train some random guy he knew for ONE EPISODE, who ends up being turned into gummi. He left his family, including his YOUNG GRANDDAUGHTER, for some random dude. If Goku wanted to train someone, he could've trained Bulma, Trunks, Krillin or even Yamacha to be he future savior, but instead he chose a character even the creators didn't care about. Worst anime ending yet.
Um technically it never ended dragon ball super is running
So basically the ending is toriyama introducing a new character that nobody gives a care about, flying on Goku's back to go training, seriously such a great anime and such a bad ending, seriously Goku could have trained frikin bulma because at least she was there since the beginning of the whole dragon ball series overall
He's training the future savior of the world. It's a good ending.
The thing that I like about it's ending is that Nagisa dies.
After a box of tissues I get this! If I had a time machine, the first thing I would do is change the ending
Thanks for spoiling man... thanks a lot
Stupid nonsense ending. "lol all that sad stuff? just kidding! "
I just felt unfulfilled at the end of this anime, like it didn't feel like it was actually done. So I read the manga and like someone said it ties up the loose ends and made me feel like it was an ending once the manga finished it. Even after a decade I would still sign a petition, protest, etc. for a season 2 of this anime because that would just be the best thing, done correctly, obviously.
This ending felt like a middle finger to the face. I loved Ouran Highschool Host Club, and it's a shame that it didn't have a better ending. In fact, I probably would have given this series a 10/10 if it were not for that terrible ending.
There is going to be another season, so the series isn't technically over; just put on hold for a while.
I think It would be better if we knew what it would be like if Haruhi were to end up with, like, Hikaru or Kaoru or the others that liked her.
This ending was a masterpiece yall are idiots
Not the best ending but it was chosen by the fans
Well he isn’t dead, but yeah the ending of the show sucks. But the movie makes up for it.
I STG THE ENDING FRUSTRATED ME SO MUCH
Everything about this series was good, except for the ending.
I love the ending it is so creative
Fmab had the better ending this ending just was god awful and the movie made the ending worst!
If we talking' brotherhood here. Then definitely.
"Hey, let's have Kyousuke screw over all his friends and family to have an incest relationship with his abusive bitch of a sister"
