What’s the Best Ending in an Anime?


A good ending leaves us satisfied. Instead of walking away with questions, confusion, or annoyance about loose ends that weren’t tied up, character arcs that weren’t completed or thrown away or poor writing – a great ending completes our watching experience.

Anime with multiple seasons have a habit of showing a time-skip in a series at the ending, which can be quite annoying since it’s often a bit random seeming (since we’re missing approximately 5+ years of context, relationships, growth, and more).

An ending that comes to mind for me when thinking about this topic is Death Parade’s. It was emotional to learn about Chiyuki’s story and the beautiful scene where she gets to stake with an audience and says good-bye to everyone is a beautiful ending for the series.

Do you have a favourite ending? Why is it your favourite?

  1. FMA manga/Brotherhood had a good ending with the final pictures. I also like how Sailor Moon anime brought back the original (well, 2nd version) opening for the very last episode. Pretear is one that randomly popped into my head. The Snow White inspirations, the family coming together, romance, and comedy — just a nice sendoff to the tale.
