Top 10 Worst Anime Endings


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Elfen Lied Elfen Lied

I really liked the Anime, but the ending was a major disappointment. - NuMetal

Who was that at the door?

I didn't like that cliffhanger... Enough said.

22 Ouran Highschool Host Club

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. - Absolite

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.

There is going to be another season, so the series isn't technically over; just put on hold for a while.

Okay, first off, Kaname decides all on his own for Zero and Yuki to 'be together. ' Sounds more like a replacement! And, Yuki was already pregnant with Kaname's child, like what? Not only that, but she get's pregnant with Zero's child after that. And when Zero dies, she leaves her children and uses her own life to resurrect Kaname, who has no recollection or memories. Worst. Ending.

The worst ending I ever seen

It has the wooorst ending ever I mean he loves her but says he’s going to kill her

24 Black Butler Black Butler Black Butler is a Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and premiered in October, 2008.

They seriously need to fix the timeline for this anime... "This is just a filler" "This never happened" This is what happened after what never happened" "This is what supposed to happen..." Etc. - Aurothon

It's too much of a cliffhanger...besides, Sebastian doesn't smile anymore

Yes I agreee so much

25 Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist is an anime series directed by Tensai Okamura and produced by A-1 Pictures, which adapts the Blue Exorcist manga written and illustrated by Kazue Kato.

Loved and Enjoyed the series through and through, it's still one of my favorite Anime's, but the ending could have been better. It didn't give a proper conclusion to the series, and your left wanting more but it was intended to be one of those go read the manga endings.

It's not as bad as Soul Eater's ending, but still not the best ending. It could have been better, though.

The second season will start soon and hopefully will tie some loose ends.

27 Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann, known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is an anime series animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It was also directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima.

*MAJOR SPOILERS* GOD dang. don't get me wrong, I loved this anime. But I mean the ending was just horrible, absolutely horrible. After the death of kamina, I was slightly irritated and hesitant to continue the anime. Though I had a lot of hope for his revival, because if you have the power of the ''spiral'', ANYTHING is possible. Now, fast forward to the future. Simon is an adult blah blah and now out of no where he's like the god dang king/general/major/SUPREME GOD of a new built city- there are A LOT of supporting characters that have aged (ANGER), blah blah fast forward and now AFTER the irritating final war in space... he marries Nia. I was expecting the most satisfying ending where all the characters just sit together in a room talking about the crazy adventures they had. Nia and Simone now have a child and- GREAT SCOTT WHAT THE HECK? Nia DIES. poof. she just fades away during the most amazingly made wedding scene AND SIMONE DIDN'T GIVE TWO CRAPS ABOUT IT. To be honest, the whole ...more

28 Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Shaft and Aniplex, directed by Akiyuki Shinbo, written by Gen Urobuchi, music by Yuki Kajiura, opening sang by ClariS, ending by Kalafina (sometimes by the seiyuus) and original characters by Ume Aoki. It also has 3 movies, more.

Man, this ending was so bad in so many ways. Madoka get a ton of power she doesn't earn or even deserve, all of the dark elements you previously see are completely removed by the cheesy, sunshine-and-rainbows nature of Madoka's wish, and everything ends well for almost every single character (notice that I said almost). The series doesn't end with the mature "you can't save everyone" message you see before. Instead, Madoka Mary Sues her way into becoming a Christ figure and saves EVERY SINGLE MAGICAL GIRL ACROSS TIME AND SPACE from their fate of becoming witches and all of the magical girls are left with smiles on their faces. It completely ruins every ounce of maturity you see in the show and goes from being a nicely written tragedy to a cheesy hope-conquers-all type of story. You know, the type you usually see in children's books. The series starts out great, but ends poorly.

Wow this has to be THE WORST ENDING EVER! I mean COME ON it was going good with homura defeating walpurshinat or whatever and going twords a happy ending. WHAT! I mean they just give Madoka a bunch of powers for no reason whatsoever and all the dark elements that I enjoy about this show are tossed out the window and replaced by the main character getting FORGOTTEN by all the other characters. I MEAN WHERE THE HELL DID THAT COME FROM! A good ending would use the elements of the show to create something good. But I have to say I wish there was some happiness. Hey don't get me wrong I like a dark anime once in a while but this is DOWN RIGHT DEPPRESSING! So this whole show was a let down to me

29 Guilty Crown Guilty Crown Guilty Crown is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Production I.G which aired on Fuji TV's noitamina program block from October 2011. The story revolves around Shu Ouma, a high school boy who inadvertently obtains an ability called "Power of the King" that enables him to draw out items more.

There were so many plot holes and the ending was just depressing, I mean they both should die or neither of them should, in my opinion neither of them should have died.

30 Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

The less said about this ending the better. - PerfectImpulseX

It's so bad that I'll never watch IBO ever again because of it. - PerfectImpulseX

31 I My Me Strawberry Eggs

I still can't get over how terrible this ending was. It was like 'now I have to go away forever. BYE! ' This ending was just a slap in the face to everything it was trying to accomplish.

32 Sonic X Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.

I did like sonic X even though I HATED stupid Chris But I watched it because of Shadow even though he wasn't in much episodes I liked it but my main problem is Chris they should replace him with another character. It was funny especially the Chaotix and the Knuckles and Rouge moments

I doubt anyone would agree with me... but this is one of the worst attempts at tragedy I've ever seen. A good tragedy teaches a character or the viewers a moral... as it gives the sadness a point. This has no point other than just to be sad... and they do so in a way that's almost as cruel to a likable character as It's A Wishful Life, a rather infamous episode of Fairly Odd Parents... there's a line, and this episode crossed it.

There's also the pulsating walnut... who thought that would look like an intimidating villain?

33 Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by Hiromu Arakawa. It is about two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, trying to restore their bodies after failing at bringing their mother back to life. It aired in 2003 and was remade as Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood more.

Everything about this series was good, except for the ending.

If we talking' brotherhood here. Then definitely.

37 Tokyo Ravens

Wow, you guys are too easy take this the most confusing ending ever. Does the main female character live or die AND THAT CLIFFHANGER AND YET NO SEASON 2 TO BE SEEN.

I agree with this one. I don't know if Natsume really lived or not or if they will see each other again. MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR WHAT THE HELL? That's it?!?!?! This deserves to have a season 2!

38 Sora No Otoshimono

After one of the funniest and fairly emotional animes I've seen, you would expect a dramatic, yet happy ending. No throw that idea straight out of the window; after 2 season and 2 movies the whole ending scene lasted about 2 minutes with no explanation of what was going on. Rushed. Annoying. Ruined the whole series.

39 Shiki.

Not everybody dies. There is just a small amount that does survive. What would you expect though? People went on mass slaughters! How would that many people be living?!

Everybody. Dies. Just like that. The humans all go insane with murder rush and kill the shiki. No hope for either species

40 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul isn't over yet. The manga is still ongoing and the anime is not completely finished yet did this get in to a worst anime ending list without having an ending? There's either the possibility of a remake or a season 3. - ToukaKirishima

They're still making a Season 3! Since when did the whole Tokyo Ghoul franchise end yet?! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Tokyo ghoul sucks!
Its just a ripp-off of dead man wonderland!
Tokyo ghoul is so Overrated!

Um, you didn't even explain the ending of the anime. All you just said is that it is a ripoff of Deadman Wonderland and that it is overrated. What about the conclusion to this anime series? Can you explain why you hate the ending to this series? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
