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.
