Top 10 Worst Anime Endings


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Pandora Hearts Pandora Hearts

If only they continued and followed the manga.

42 Ranma 1/2 Ranma 1/2
43 The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

This is the reason I'm on this list. I hated the ending so much.

44 Hidan no Aria
45 Gakuen Alice

Honestly, Sakura mikan loses her memories and boom, she gets them back after seeing everyone! And then it ends with an abrupt ending of searching Hotaru are you serious? What ever happened to the side characters and their relationships? To the academy?

46 Inuyasha Inuyasha InuYasha is a manga franchise created by Rumiko Takahashi. It was adapted into two anime television series produced by Sunrise. The first was broadcast for 167 episodes on Yomiuri TV in Japan from October 16, 2000 until September 13, 2004. The second series, called Inuyasha: The Final Act, began airing more.

The ending to the whole series (I'm talking about the Final Act and not the cliffhanger they left us with in the original series) just wasn't very exciting. None of the characters die or betray the other characters, Naraku's demise was predictable, and everything ends well for every character, including Naraku himself! It just wasn't cut out to be a good ending and I was honestly very disappointed with it. The only thing I liked about it was the interesting twist with the Shikon Jewel being the true villain all along. Other than that, it just wasn't very good.

47 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". more.

SAO's ending is lazy but satisfying because the worst character in the series is finally punished. It's so under explained that the ending of SAO is actually worse than every video game ending I could possibly think of and even worse than some anime endings. They didn't explain why Kayaba helped Kirito all of the sudden or How the hell did Kirito escaped death for the second time, hell Bloodborne's 3 endings are more explained than this. - PrinceOfFire

NO SPOILERS: What?! I loved the ending to Sword Art Online! Both the Aincrad and Fairy Dance arcs had beautiful endings. Phantom Bullet's ending was happy and sad at the same time. Although Mother's Rosario ending was sad... :'( - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I'm glad this is on the last page! Sword Art Online may not be the best anime ever, but come on. It had a pretty good ending for both Aincrad and Fairy Dance. A Sword Art Online hater most likely put this here. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The ending was great!

It stopped to abruptly

49 Fate/Zero Fate/Zero Fate/Zero is a series of light novels written by Gen Urobuchi, illustrated by Takashi Takeuchi, and is a prequel to Type-Moon's visual novel, Fate/stay night. An anime adaptation of Fate/Zero was jointly produced by Aniplex, nitroplus, Type-Moon, Seikaisha, and Ufotable that ran from 2011-2012.


The ending to Fate/Zero wasn't all that bad, but I can definitely say it was depressing. Aside from Kirei winning the Holy Grail War and Gilgamesh living on, there were many things that made this such a tragic ending. When Kiritsugu commanded Saber to destroy the Holy Grail, she couldn't do anything to stop herself from following her Master's command. After Saber does so, she is sent back to her sad past and all she can do is cry at having failed as a king in light of events such as killing Berserker, who turned out to be one of her former comrades. Also, we see Kariya seemingly happily reuniting Sakura with Rin... when it actually turns out to be a bittersweet hallucination and he falls down and is eaten by the Crest Worms as Sakura insults her uncle for defying her adoptive grandfather. Meanwhile, the Fourth Heaven's Feel is happening as the Holy Grail unleashes a vast quantity of black lava that begins to destroy Fuyuki City and start ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Great anime, hateful ending. My most hated character, Kirei Kotomine technically wins the holy grail war! WHY? - SelfDestruct

50 Kill la Kill Kill la Kill Kill la Kill is an anime television series produced by Trigger. In Kill la Kill, Ryuko Matoi transfers to a new high school in order to find her father's murderer.

I will admit it was kind of crazy Ryuko had to be caught by every NAKED person at the fallen academy, but other than that, the ending was heartwarming. Shoot me for all I know. But the OVA is more appropriate and gives another satisfying conclusion to the anime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Do I even need to explain why? All I am gonna say is it's eye torture. - SelfDestruct

51 Seraph of the End Seraph of the End Seraph of the End (Japanese: 終わりのセラフ Hepburn: Owari no Serafu) (also known as Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign) is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series written by Takaya Kagami and illustrated by Yamato Yamamoto with storyboards by Daisuke Furuya. It is published by Shueisha on Jump SQ more.

So, who is this new vampire overlord Ferid bows to? Sad thing is we never got an answer as of now. We need a third season. - SelfDestruct

52 Lovely Complex

It ends with the couple arguing and screaming at one another.

53 Spice and Wolf Spice and Wolf Spice and Wolf is a Japanese light novel series written by Isuna Hasekura, with illustrations by Jū Ayakura.

The ending was a cliffhanger so ya it sucks.

54 Danganronpa 3: Hope Arc

Are you kidding me? I was expecting at least a 40 minute episode to wrap up everything. We've just come so far. The cast had suffered so much that by the end a lot of people were just happy they got their good ending, but I honestly don't care. The ending was bull. They took the joke "SHSL BS! " and took it seriously. If you haven't seen it, basically after Junko Enoshima causes the apocalypse and tortures our fan favorites, 32 kids are put into 2 separate killing games where they are forced to murder each other and then punish the murderer. It turns out one of the games was all a shared coma dream between 16 of them, and as for the other 16 only 6 survive, but then are forced into another death game where they meet ryouta mitarai, who was manipulated by Junko. A major character, Kirigiri, is killed of and Mitatai decides to brainwash the entire human population to not feel negative emotions.

Still with me? Good because here's where the bs comes in. The comatose kids ...more
