The Art of Ending an Anime

The Art of Ending an Anime


This video is sponsored by Another Eden. Another Eden is a free-to-play JRPG adventure for iOS and Android and before I go any further. This is written and directed by Masato Kato, who wrote the likes of Chrono Trigger Xenogears, Heroes of Mana and many more. Yes, and like a lot of mobile games, and this is a super story focused RPG with a lengthy 26 chapter Campaign visiting multiple timelines and locations, voiced in both English and full Weeb. Yes It’s a much more traditional story driven JRPG and as a JRPG enthusiast, I already know all the ins and outs Look has warned me not to fight this dude, but I’m pretty confident. I can handle… This must be the dark souls of mobile games!! You get to choose between a big variety of party members But I’ve also got to mention the music because it was composed by Yasunori Mitsuda and poor econ studio, who also works on Chrono Trigger and Xenogears cuz this is by far the best OST I’ve heard for any mobile game If this top class production sounds like your cup of tea Click the link in the description to download it on iOS and Android and with that said let’s get on with today’s video Anime endings- no not that- the ending of an anime -No, no, not not fucking- that the part that comes at the end of an anime No, Not fucking that! The final act of an anime in which the events happening in the plot, characters, and series come to a conclusion Aka the ending is an important part of any anime It can be the culmination of the journey that’s been taken It can give the entire series a sense of resolution and closure and in some cases can literally make or break an anime But I feel in this age of seasonal anime, 3 episode rules, dropping shows harder than the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs something not discussed enough is Anime End- oh for fuck’s sake- A good friend of mine once said “the ending is Paramount Pictures” Stay toasty, but I feel like in anime because of the way it’s made there are different directions We as anime fans see a lot from the conclusive, to the open-ended, to the downright What the fuck? So I wanted to just take this video to just kind of discuss the different types of endings We usually see, my perceptions of them as a whole, and how they fit into the anime culture in general. Now, I want to keep this a general discussion about endings without spoiling everything I’m talking about so to help you avoid this on every section I will be listing any shows in which I either detail or show spoiler-ific Plot points to do with the ending So if you want to skip any sections, the timestamps of each section will be in the description below so with that out of the way first let’s start with If there’s one easy way for a new anime to grab my attention It’s just by knowing that it’s an anime original series Firstly, because this means we don’t have any source material, meaning we don’t get those manga-readers acting like 200 IQ Geniuses being like “oh Is that what you think is going to happen? Poor Anime only watchers? hehehe” “Look at me. I’m so smart because I know what’s gonna happen next hehehe,” and then light novel readers are there like “AHAHAHA, FOOLISH MORTALS!!” And secondly because it’s not based on a pre-existing IP, it’s likely that it will have an ending that’s conclusive or even better It means the entire story from beginning to end is already pre-planned and anime original series are not common occurrences But many shows older and new stick out to me because of this fact: Cowboy Bebop Eureka 7, Code Geass, even in more recent times with RE:Creators, and A Place Further than the Universe, of course It wasn’t just the ending that made these show stand out, but it did help a lot something like Zankyou no Terror, despite a lot of the problems I had with it stick with me clearly because it felt like a complete story that was planned out with an ending I’ve really enjoyed and like holy shit Re:Creators did this Revolutionary thing in anime called an epilogue where the entire last episode was no action, no plot. It was just dedicated to tying up loose ends and seeing what characters were up to after the story was concluded to leave the viewer with a sense of closure What The Fuc- but of course just because something is anime original doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed to have a good ending In fact, there used to be this thing called ‘Gainax endings’ where certain shows coincidentally produced by studio Gainax would get endings That made no sense or served sequel hooks to sequels that were never made Fortunately ‘Gainax Endings’ nowadays seems to have died with the decline of the studio only to find themselves Isekai-d into Trigger for its own light novel adaptation of ‘that time I got Reincarnated as Darling in the FranXX’ But even some anime that have had a conclusive enough endings, have had a reoccurring issue because if it gets enough success and popularity There’s always a chance that the creators felt it was appropriate to revive it and have another go There are little things that are sacred in anime these days and one of them certainly isn’t the legacy of a popular franchise It doesn’t matter how good or how conclusive and complete your series can be when it’s over There’s always gonna be a way to Ret-Conn or ass-pull or literally Resurrect a new narrative to milk a few more dollars out of beloved franchises just in time to give me my ‘JI-BUN WOES’ (cries for mistakes made that cause woes) On the rare occasion you get something like Diebuster adding a new story in the same world years after Gunbuster but there are numerous examples of sequels coming in that not only result in a vastly inferior ending to the original series but even going As far as completely fucking up and ruining the established canon We went from Darker Than Black season 1 Chinese electric Batman to Darker Than Black season 2 Alcoholic dad simulator, Madoka Rebellion was a sequel movie…. that people had opinions about and then there’s Eureka 7 AO. Now if AO is viewed as a standalone series it would be Fine, just a fairly forgettable average show But as a sequel It’s a fucking travesty. Introducing plot elements that completely broke characters and themes from the original going as far to confirm that the fucking spin-off reboot movie was somehow canon in some bizarre multiverse time travel fuck ass-ury and just in general trampling all over the world and themes of the original series There’s a discussion to be had on whether the existence of these sequels have ruined the value of the original ending but there are also a few shows that have had pretty decent endings in the sense that they concluded everything they needed to but they still left room for a sequel which were eventually made that really didn’t live up to the original The first Psycho Pass had some truly interesting and brilliant ideas that were explored and has yet to be replicated, nothing from Steins;Gate either from its sequel movie or Zero came close to capturing the original spirit and the only thing I thought the New FLCL (Fooly Cooly) brought to the table was a few new great tracks from The Pillows I think my problem with all these is that they are examples where sequel definitely wasn’t needed or originally planned But they made one anyway It’s not like the Mob Psycho season two’s of today where the storyline didn’t end and the sequel continues to add and enhance the plots But the original series has said everything it wants to and put a full-stop in it, making it hard for any sequel to capture that Same magic, even if in some cases it had left space for further ideas to be explored. However, to go in the complete opposite direction, you sometimes get anime that choose to give itself a conclusive ending even if the original story actually continues *RIP headphone users* Kind of a lost art nowadays are anime that follow the source material up to a point only to diverge from it, giving it an ending That’s more conclusive Either because the source material they are adapting from is still incomplete or far too long to cover in the episode counts they are given now when I say some lost art I mean it kind of dug its own grave, set itself from fire, and jumped in head first, Soul Eater Claymore, Hellsing, Blue Exorcist, Gantz, Akeme Ga Kill! while all of these shows had conclusive endings that stopped to the point before the manga had instead of achieving their purpose of ending the series in a satisfying way it Just made fans want to end themselves. the problem with anime original endings Is that when an anime tries to go a different direction in order to give an ending that’s more conclusive You miss out on the proper build-up and foreshadowing to make this happen This is made even more confusing when you get sequel seasons, that continue to follow the manga, for an anime That’s already been given a conclusion. in most cases, You can just pretend the final anime only arc didn’t happen and just continue business as usual but occasionally you get something like Tokyo Ghoul Root A The completely anime only sequel to Tokyo Ghoul aka Tokyo ghoul season 2, not to be confused with Tokyo Ghoul:re season 2 which is the second season to Tokyo Ghoul:re. the sequel season to Tokyo Ghoul because Tokyo Ghoul Root A aka Season 2 doesn’t follow the manga so that makes Tokyo Ghoul:re the cannon second season of Tokyo Ghoul except Tokyo Ghoul:re aka Cannon 2nd season doesn’t immediately continue the events of Tokyo Ghoul season 1 I mean why the fuck with it, right? So instead it continues on from Tokyo Ghoul manga Obviously, which was never fully adapted into an anime, which makes it really easy to follow So if you’re an anime only watcher it’s actually pretty simple All you need to do is watch Tokyo Ghoul Then read the Tokyo Ghoul manga, then watch the Tokyo ghoul live-action then comes the Tokyo Ghoul Musical then Tokyo Ghoul Grand Order for the Nintendo DS and then after you’ve done all that you’re finally ready to play Kingdom Hearts 3 – my recollection, the only anime original ending that has been positively received has been the original Full Metal Alchemist and what made this possible was the fact that since the anime started diverging by the halfway point, it was able to carve out its own narrative and tackle things in a different way, giving much more adequate time to set up its ending and for it’s time people were Satisfied considering the original manga was still ongoing. having said that though nowadays I get the sense that this ending is looked down upon because we now have Brotherhood which remakes the entire series to give an ending the majority seem to agree was much better than what we originally got and this is Why I feel you just don’t see this kind of ending nowadays If you diverge from the source material. It is very hard to make something satisfactory even if you make it conclusive and fans seemingly would much rather be left hanging than given a conclusion that Absolutely sucks dick, and that leads us to our next section in the technical term. We know as Must be showing my age, that’s not what the cool kids are saying these days *Pop* (fricken Light Novels) That’s better as we know every story has a beginning, a middle, and an end Except in anime where we get a beginning, half a middle, and a season 3. That’s never gonna come This is a very common occurrence in anime we see an interesting set up to a story or world, a major arc or two happens, and just as you feel you’ve just about Scratched the surface of what it has to offer, its ends and you never hear from it again If you’re an anime fan, you’ve probably experienced this a lot Especially in the short, hard-hitting, seasonal anime culture. as they can Sometimes feel like certain anime were made as a glorified advert for the source material see, when it comes to people who read source material like manga there are two types of manga readers: the brain, rare heroic Souls who throw themselves into the Expansive world of manga working tirelessly to find that next hidden gem within the ocean of unknown titles and then, there’s everyone else, who saw an airing anime and couldn’t wait to find out what happens next. back in the day there were some pretty infamous endings for doing this and by infamous I mean it was like the animators ran out of paper to draw on and we’re like, yeah Let’s just cut to credits and hope nobody cares *whisper* everyone cared. Air Gear, Batoom, the original HunterxHunter, High School of the Dead These just ended right in the middle of a story arc with all number of story threads up in the air before just stopping dead No conclusion No promise of another season. just cut to credits and then you had the original Berserk, which didn’t just stop in the middle of a story arc, but right in the middle of the most shocking Scarring turn of events that literally destroyed a man leaving him bleeding tears of blood, screaming in anger in a state of shock Betrayal, aghast, at the events that just unfolded and that was just me I don’t even know how Guts felt Back then, fans would have sold their soul to see what happens next and little did we know that twenty years later we’d get our wish yeah, we got our wish, alright? We have no rights complain We got our fuckin wi- who made a deal with the fucking be-helots to make this wish come true Nowadays, what I will say is that seasons at least are more carefully planned out So audiences get some kind of closure in the arts that they tackle, but still if you’ve been an anime fan for a while I’m sure you’ve gotten used to the feeling of waiting for a season two or three That’s may or may not ever come, whether that be Re:ZERO- Holy fucking shit. Are you serious? No Game No Life, Spice and Wolf, The Devil is a Part-timer *whisper* A Berserk adaptation we can be proud of All countless other shows if you’re lucky you may get another season or I guess the hot new thing nowadays is sequel movies Oh, look at that sexy boy walking down the red carpet But even then will it ever even come close to completion? Not likely. part of the life cycle within the anime and manga culture is that we get an anime adaptation When you have a hot title and that rarely happens After a title has already ended. On the rare occasion you get something like Devil man Crybaby where the anime is adapting an old title that’s finished But more often than not you find yourself finishing the anime and when you catch up to the manga or light novel, the story is still at least a few years away from completion one thing I both love and hate about the medium of anime is just how many new shows with massive variety we constantly get but the downside of that, is as an anime fan you get used to being introduced to stories, characters, and worlds which you know you’re never gonna see the ending of and honestly I think that’s kind of a shame because to me even though I don’t think the ending is always the most Important factor a lot of the anime that have stuck in my mind. years after they have finished. are the ones that end. Now you may be sitting there wondering why I cared enough about Anime endings that I would want to make a whole video on it And that’s because I just wanted to express how much I value a great ending well, I don’t think every series needs a fantastic ending or even a proper ending, for it to be a fantastic series the ones that do have one. I never forget. my favorite anime ending of all time still is Code Geass’s original ending Now over a decade later when I think back to Code Geass, with the second season in mind especially. I don’t remember the complete mess it was at times, the complete flip-flopping of characters, that suited whatever the plot needed or whoever the fuck this little shit was does anyone remember the cat episode Does anyone remember the pizza episode! I remember season 2, episode 25, Re; I remember Lelouch’s sacrifice I remember the Trumpets of Madder Sky Blaring as they explained Zero’s Requiem. jaws wide open, goosebumps galore. as I realized Holy fuck. everything had a point Everything was leading up to this one moment and feeling a sense of awe jubilation, sadness, and emptiness. all at once as the credits started rolling and That is the power of a great ending It’s that bittersweet void that tells you that the journey is Over as much as you love the path you took to get here and never wanted it to end The fact that it did end makes it even more special And you wouldn’t have it any other way. Because yes, sometimes it’s about the journey, not the destination but when you have a breathtaking destination, it can give even more meaning to that journey, and make that entire voyage you took THAT much more extraordinary Nowadays so much focus is given to how to begin a story. With so many anime competing
for your attention every season, it’s all about how to make
the highest impact as fast as possible, how to immediately stand out from the crowd. But to me, it’s the ending that sticks with you. There have been plenty of anime with great beginnings that slowly fizzle out and get forgotten But I have never forgotten an anime with a great ending It wraps up everything the story was trying to say Allows me to truly reflect on the anime as a whole and kind of make peace with the fact that it is complete. Because, if you end your anime right, it can be a moment you’ll never forget. *smirk* “Bang” *Ending Music starts* Hey guys, hope you enjoyed that video. Again, I just wanted to give a quick thanks to

    I don’t care if the darling in the franxx ending was bad I still teared up multiple times throughout the series

  • CraftyFox says:

    Code Geass is still one of my favorite anime and I love so many hilarious scenes and such a strong and emotional story.
    And I still think that Berserk could be one of the best Anime out there, but they make this thing 3D and fans were so disappointed.

    I know nobody cares but still love it such an amazing story.

  • Legessa Lynx says:

    What is the anime on 12:34 ?

  • Nereus says:

    the only good ending of code geass is that lelouche is alive fuck you shut up

  • Andrew Tompkins says:

    I like how Haganai ended the anime on a cliffhanger, and then the light novel ended the whole thing with an anticlimax that made me wish I had never bothered to find out.

  • Olorin Istar says:

    I actually really didn't like code geass, but the ending was so good it made me change my mind substantially. And that cowboy bebop ending to this video put a smile on my face

    I am a brave.
    I lunge deep into the depths of manga, and I come up for air only when I need it.
    I have seen stories that would make you cry in horror at how bad they are, and I've seen artwork that makes me go "What the hell are they even trying to do?"

  • François -Pondemer says:

    When I found out Air Gear had an anime, I was hyped, I was in the middle of the manga, I don't think it was even finished yet, it's been years. Then I finished the anime, I was pissed they stopped like that.
    Then I came back a few years later, finished the manga, thank god they ended the anime there.

  • Liviya Vanderweg says:

    Lelouch’s death shook my heart and soul

  • Modest Zlatolobov says:

    I liked second seasons of Darker then Black and Psycho-pass more, then first ones. And the third Madoka movie is one of my favorite movies of all time. I this weird?

  • you stupid says:

    Darling in the franxx was such a good anime . until giant fcking franxx with zero two face exist

    The ending make me not interested to rewatch it unlike most of my favorite animes

  • Darkdestroyerza says:

    When it comes to FMA I feel the first half of 2003 is stronger as Brotherhood didn't focus on it as it was under the presumption that the viewer was already introduced to the characters and world from the OG anime or the manga

  • doodledoodlepencilfart 69 says:

    high school of the dead creator is dead before he finished the source material so like the anime didnt have any choice but to just stop

  • Bill Nye says:

    This was similar to good poem cause they both made me cry a little😢

  • the Librarian says:

    i think code geass ending should be at season 2. no need to make another sequel to that, dont get me wrong, sequel is fine, but reviving a dead character wasnt really a good thing in my opinion, cuz it break the epic moment at the ending and all the other sacrifices lelouch has made. im fine with new season, but its better to give new mc to focus on, like that agito guy.

  • breynoso17 says:

    Attack on titan is bound to change this

  • LSK Reaper says:

    Me: "I really want a season two to Re:Zero"
    Youtube: Drops a season two trailer
    Me watching it: "I'm not emotional prepared for it."

  • Jason Sama says:

    i feel as madoka magica rebellion was made as a much needed conclusion to homuras character arc, as every other character went through a similar process of development and had an ending to them homura never got that proper ending, all she got was a wishy washy 'the fight continues' which i personally think she deserved more and am glad she got a proper conclusion

  • Funguy31 says:

    I was like, he should mention fma. Mentions it. I love the 2003 version. Brotherhood was awesome too. Also, when people screw with good stories, I use headcanon

    waitning for fire punch to be animated

  • Jospeh Mr Video Game Boy says:

    And then you have fairy tail a show and manga I loved. Loved. Past tense. What the actual fuck was that last arc. Mashima never planned the ending and it shows. The writing is truly awful and there's like 5 fake deaths 3 random out of nowhere plot points and more friendship power than even fairy tail could handle. Spoilers ahead:the worst thing no satisfying delivery on any of the relationships teased throughout the show. And after it ended I realised something important every character literally every character had more character development than natsu. Wtf. He starts of a loud fire eating idiot who loves his friends to death and that's still who he is at the end and into the 100 year quest. There was hundreds of opportunities to have him change in someway but everytime you think he might mature a little the show just breezes past it and he's back to the way he was before. ALZACK HAD MORE DEVELOPMENT. FUCKING ALZACK. Ps. Getting stronger is not character development. That's just power. His personality does not change in any way.

  • Jubel says:

    oh dude when i was 14 or something like that i watched soul eater and it was the best showever for me until the end… I knew it was whack but when I checked out the Manga.. Holy moly fucked this showup

  • N3rd Degree says:

    How do you talk about amazing anime endings and not mention Angel Beats?

  • Stevan Gucu says:

    Oh man you are right about good endings staying with you forever. Just few month ago I found anime Legends of the Galactic Heroes and watched it at the same time as Game of Thrones. How both series came near the end I definitely lost interest in GoT and was excited for ending of LoGH. That anime was way more focused during the entire storyline and succeeded to make true ending that concluded fates of main characters, story in world and subverted expectations that didn’t felt like gimmick, like in GoT, but everything in storyline led to that ending. I am sorry that GoT didn’t end well, bit I am glad that I watched that legendary anime and that was complete from the beginning to the end. There is reboot of LoGH, and for now my opinion is reserved since I haven’t watched it and I will do that when it ends.

    Legends of the Galactic Heroes (original ) is one of the greatest anime I saw, and I would recommend it to everyone who likes complex story, great characters, mature story, geopolitical changes and classical music of Beethoven, Mahler, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky and many others.

    One ending i will never forget is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ending, both anime and the extra part of the second movie, its a hell of a good way to end a long cycle following all of simon life, specially when the movei adds the bit of simon going through the world helping out and making the planet greener and with more life fulfilling nia dream of spreading flowers and hope through it, is just too beautiful, and to boot, it was a gainax show that didnt gave us an open ending, wtf ending or anything, it was a simple and proper ending ith a sense of closure, bittersweetness and epicness after such a long journey

    Shu Ouma develops the ability to absorb all voids, which allows him to rid the world of the crystallization cancer cells. He tries to do this at the end of the series, but somehow Inori prevents this (presumably forcing the absorbed voids to be pressed into her) and dies in his stead. Shu develops blindness later on from absorbing so much of the disease so quickly.

    The problem is; if Inori could be given all of the disease after Shu absorbs it, that literally means Shu can give anyone the voids he absorbs. He can literally transfer the disease at will, acting as a conduit. If that is the case, why not transfer it into a cat, or a dead enemy? The void is not the soul, but a representation of a soul that is generated by the void itself. After watching that horrid ending, it took me 3 seconds to realize this. I had already figured that it was possible. If Inori could be given all of the voids, then she didn’t have to have Shu’s ability to do so. She could have told Shu, OR, Shu could have realized that he could do this and acted upon that information. The ending could have been saved in a way that wasn’t cheap, left a sweet taste on the tongue, and ended the series on a well written and truly happy note. Instead, we get dead girl, blind guy, both too dumb to realize they could have lived.

    I’m still super annoyed at the ending of this show. I think the author wanted this ending for cheap tragic points. Instead, I think the author of this travesty gave up on an ending with a LOT more potential for audience satisfaction. Don’t get me wrong, the plot holes and subpar writing during the series is bad enough, but I thought they’d at least give us an ending that wasn’t so shallowly tragic. Wholly frustrating.

    i feel that to fully understand the tokyo ghoul anime you need to watch root a. tg:re starts after the events of tg root a, not tg. if you skip tg root a, you go from kaneki defeating jason in his torture chamber to 2 years after the raid on anteiku with ccg members who have the abilities of ghouls but are still technically human. if you go from tg root a to tg:re you go from kaneki vs arima cliffhanger to the events of tg:re, way less of a gap

    10:20 Guts Theme is what I started using a few years back when reading manga.
    Oddly enough I started doing it when I discovered VINLAND saga.

    10/10 coincidences satisfied me
