Day 28: Anime You Wish Never Ended
Can I say InuYasha again? Actually, the show pretty much is wrapped up nicely at the end of the Final Act, even though the Final Act itself is something of a monstrosity of mediocrity. (It just wasn’t at the level of the original series, even the filler.) So I’m going to do something different and read off a list of several anime I’ve seen, and tell you whether I liked where it ended or not (“Stay” or “Go on”).
- Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood: Stay. It was the perfect ending, as you probably know if you’ve followed this blog for any period of time.
- Akame ga Kill: Go on. I’d much rather see a reboot of this, with fewer main character deaths and much less Akame.
- Kill la Kill: Stay. Kill la Kill ended perfectly as well. Even the OVA seemed like it was too tacked-on.
- Spiral: Go on. This one is obvious if you’ve read my reviews of it. It ended way, way too early.
- Bleach: Stay. IchiHime becoming canon was perfect.
- Death Note: Stay. Please no more adding on to Death Note; the story went too long as it was. (The second live-action movie wrapped it up well.)
- Evangelion: Stay. There is no more fitting ending for Evangelion than “Kimochi warui.”
- Lucky Star: Go on. Obvious again. I can’t get enough of Konata and Kagami.
- Samurai Champloo: Go on. A little surprise here, but when I reviewed Samurai Champloo for the previous blog, I was only okay with the ending. I’d like to see more Fuu, Jin and Mugen.
- Parasyte: Go on. I’d like some resolution, please.
- Madoka Magica: PLEASE PLEASE NO MORE!!! Rebellion ruined Madoka for me. Mess with the story anymore, and Madoka will drop into mediocrity.
So for this one I’m going with Spiral. A little obscure pick, but it wins this category for me.
