Day 12: Best Ending to an Anime

You know where I’m going with this one, don’t you? (You probably would if you’ve listened to the podcast.) It’s the ending that redeemed the rest of a shaky series. I had whined and complained up until that magical final episode that tied up all the loose ends, fixed all the problems, and gave all our heroes a happy ending. It’s Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

I just can’t help loving how Al and May got together in the end. They are the perfect couple. This is my absolute favorite ending, even more so than Cowboy Bebop. It’s true, Cowboy Bebop has the perfect ending theme, and a very dramatic end to the show, but it’s a murky ending as to how Jet and Faye end up. FMA: Brotherhood ends with everyone eventually getting what they suffered for so long to get. The fulfillment and satisfaction is what makes the ending the best.
