I felt that the last episode was completely absurd because it is fucking retarded that Brandon would die trying to save the corrupted, treacherous, merciless, evil man who had killed him and everybody he loved or cared about.
I mean for God's sakes! why would he do that?
You are Brandon heat, you have allowed yourself to be turned into a zomie for two reasons: 1. to stop Harry and just as importantly 2. to protect Maria, Big Daddy and their family. You have struggled through countless battles, and killed many of your other former friends and colleagues without hesitation such as Bear and Bunji to carry out these aims. So why, why the flying fuck would you suddenly let that all go to shit?!?
You had just tried to kill Harry a second before, the only reason he didn't have a nice large hole going through his head is because you had run out of amunition! You were prepared to exact a righteous revenge upon him a few minutes ago, so what changed?!?
Sure, I can understand wanting to have a chat with him before you finish him, perhaps try to understand why he did all that crap. But just what in God's name would possess you to willingly die trying to save this hateful little man? why can't you see that he isn't the same person you were once friends with? if he was still in power, he'd try to kill you with his orcmen right there! So why?!
Why did you forget about Mika, the only family you have left? she's 16 years old and has absolutely NO-ONE left in the world to look after her. she needs you! and you're just going to abandon her? after the number of times you risked life and limb trying to save her, you're just going to forget about her? leave her to fend for herself?
the episode was made of inconsistency and stupidity. The Brandon from the last 25 episodes wouldn't do any of that bullshit. I consider the last episode to be a betrayal of Brandon's character. That is why I loathe it.

Ah, everyone always mentions Neon Genesis Evangelion. But you know, the whole thing was a roller coaster ride, taking a drastic turn half way through the series-- it turned from a somewhat humourous and fanservice-y mecha anime with religious overtones, to being a thought-provoking, serious anime that sometimes got downright depressing. I know that the ending made people feel uncomfortable or frustrated or confused, but I think that overall, it was a good ending. The ending was a little out there, unexpected and unusual. But that didn't make it bad. From the start you knew this wasn't going to be just another anime, and if you didn't halfway expect an ending was that was extremely different from what you expected, then you clearly just missed the mark. The movies, on the other hand, which most people liked, lacked a lot of heart, I thought. Sure, there were a couple impressive battle scenes and great graphics, but with all the characters dying, I just plain felt like no one that made the anime cared about any of those characters. Honestly, I think they were meant to be watched together and you cannot choose to accept one over the other.
What others have had disappointing endings...
Death Note. Went on too long, I think, the ending was a little... odd... I half-wanted Raito to get away with it.
Fruits Basket. Pah, the ending was stupid, everyone ended up happy, for the most part... shoujo should end a little less happily. It's a drama, c'mon!
Elfen Lief. Not that I particularly liked the manga or the anime, but the ending just... urrgg. I felt like the series went absolutely nowhere.
Fullmetal Alchemist. Okay, wasn't a huge fan of this one either, but c'mon. End the series early, don't make up crap at the end because the anime caught up to the manga.
Cardcaptor Sakura. Haha, I'm a dork. I'm a big fan of this series, but the ending made me want to throw up. It just wound down into a pit of misery until Sakura ended up admitting her love to Sayoran, which was totally unlike her. This is one of those cases where I thought, "If I did this manga, I would have done it a bit differently..."
YuYu Hakusho. Not a huge fan of this one either, but the ending felt rushed and... blah. Nothing was resolved, basically.
Gravitation. Okay, I know the anime ended before the manga, but puh-lease. That ending was retarded.
Haha, I ended up writing quite a bit. I seem to have read too much manga and read too much anime with bad endings. :-k
I can't comment too much, though, because it's been two years since I saw the ending.
b) No worries.
It's as you say, there friendship is incredible -unbelievable. I simply cannot bring myself to either believe or accept it or even comprehend it. Perhaps I'm expecting too much from an anime, but it was ridiculously unrealistic.

p.s. about berserk, Guts is very different from Brandon and the friendshio between Guts and Griffith wasn't nearly as strong.
In the end the only thing that bugged me about the series is the fact that Harry forgot the promise to the three friends that died to give them a proper barial and grave and all they had were scattered stones on the grave, but then again this wasn't really a major point in the series. Still it buggs me.
This talk is getting really good and so far i thought everyones apinions were very interesting. :axe:
Just finished a manga whose ending partly let me down. It is El Hazard Wanderers. It seemed the relationship between the main character and the princess progressed so slowly through the series and finally at the very last scene of the last episode it zooms out so much that you cant tell if they finally kissed or if they hugged, again.
