We have a thread for manga so I thought we should also have one for anime.
Please use spoiler tags when appropriate.
You start watching an anime, you like it, and after spending various hours watching it you get to the final episode hoping that it will wrap up things nicely and will answer most, if not all, of your questions; however, when you watch the last episode you find that is full of holes, rushed, doesn’t answer the important questions, is too open-ended and sometimes leaves you with a wtf feeling that makes you wonder why would someone destroy a series with such a bad ending. Well, this is a thread to talk about those least satisfying endings and the reasons why I don’t like them.
Inuyasha (the first Inuyasha, the one before Inuyasha Kanketsu-hen)

Rurouni Kenshin: Seishou-hen
Even Watsuki Nobuhiro, the original creator of RuroKen hated it and publicly "disowned" it, how much worse an anime ending can you find? And while we're at it, the main RuroKen anime had a bad ending as well because it didn't get to finish (got canceled -.-).
Hmm, i can think of a ton of bad endings. Pretty much every ecchi harem series i've ever watched in fact.
Claymore is the one that immediately jumps out in my mind though. Maybe it's just that i'm a huge fan of the manga but the way it ended boarders on sacrilege to me.
I definately 2nd Claymore, as one that jumps out, even if you just watched only the anime (and never read the manga), it's still bad. The Rigardo battle before the final battle with "you know who", was way more epic, what a let down... sighs.
any ending that is "open-ended" (and/or especially one that I don't understand), with no "finalized nail in the coffin conclusion" is a horrible ending for me.
Berserk's ending actually confuses me, but I guess I need to read the manga to understand it, hehe. As best as I can gather, the ending of Berserk, seems to lead to the beginning of it, epsiode 1. Or, maybe I jsut watch or play too much sci fi, lol. anyways, "moral of the story, I should read the manga, lol".
I can't really think of many endings, sighs... my memory needs to be jogged...

Yeah, Berserk ending with a rape scene was not a good choice. Sure we see him with the blacksmith after the time skip but it leaves out so much. How did he escape? What happened to the girl? Thank god for the manga.
Shi-ki - One way to end a series is to kill off all the major characters, maybe leaving a few survivors. At least there's the manga which is based off the novels.
I thought Berserk ending in that "raising hell/demon" scene, if I remember correctly, it's been awhile since I seen the Berserk anime. Forgot the name given to the scene, though, argh... I seen it come up in the Manga Awards....
at least I'm presuming/guessing the "Scene" mentioned in the Manga Awards is the same scene at the end of the anime, with griffith becoming the demon-king and raising hell/demon or something like that... (and maybe the girl gets killed)... now I think my memory is returning... lol...
is this correct or no?
I think it was called the great eclipse or something. It's the ceremony for one becoming a god hand. Check out the DVDs and there's an interview with Miura and he talks about how he would look over the scripts and make suggestions and changes.
The anime itself wasn't bad at all; what was bad about the ending was that it was a RECAP EPISODE about an arc that was four episodes long.
I can't fault them too much though since they were probably expecting Ono Fuyumi to release new books before they continued on.
