Was the ending too meta for me to understand or was it just bad writing?

I can't tell

All you need to know is that Schwarzwald was right.

Neither. The writing was good & the ending is intentionally ambiguous. It isn't particularly complex or deep, just bizarre. You don't have to be smart or savvy to figure out that the show was mysterious for the sake of it. That was the point.

>>13827601
Both, Japs just cant write a coherent story for a western sensibility.
>>
>>13827601
It wasn't really supposed to be the actual ending. Adult Swim wanted a third season but the creator was worried Sunrise wouldn't let that happen so he made episode 26 ambiguous in order for it to work both as a conclusion and a cliffhanger.
>>
>>13827618
This is the key here.

The second season just took what was implied by the structure of season one and turned it into an explicit, literal part of the plot (with mixed results). I still like the second season, but the first is much better.
>>
>>13828121
It also helps the first season had a large number of writers. While the second one was done solely by one writer, Chiaka Konaka who is more well known for Digimon Tamers.

Complete and total bullshit.
>>
>>13827601
I interpreted as
big venus has the power to rewrite everything
angel rewrote history so that none of the shit hit the fan; a good ending of sorts

and this isn't grasping at straws, it's literally what was stated in the show (assuming english and jap voice acting differences weren't significantly different)

This.

>bad writing
This should be a bannable phrase

It was literally the director fucking with the network

A little of column A, and a little of column B.

More to the point, there mystery of Paradigm City was never meant to be explained, however Cartoon Network would only fund the second season on the condition that they did explain the mystery.

It was a bad situation, and the (ultimately unrealized) possibility of a third season didn't help matters.

ftfy

>>13829201
Most anime writers are shit at what they do. Deal with it.
>>
>>13827601
Only the epilogue truly sucked because they had to replace it with episode 1 opening sequence.
>>
>>13829201
Why? Bad writing is a real thing and frequent problem Jap cartoon world.
>>

>>13828723

This, budget concerns are far more of an issue with story quality than some incapability on the part of Japanese to write good stories.

It's very difficult for the Anime industry to be able to generate the type of revenue which would attract the best talent, they gotta use what they've got.
>>
>>13827601
Roger negotiated for a happy season finale, but failed at negotiating a budget for season 3.

To want an ending would mean I would wanted Big O to end.
