I just finished reading Billy Bat the other day and I gotta say, that ending was pretty damn anti-climatic. Not only that, I finished I Am a Hero only a month before and that ending blue-balled me even worse. So I gotta ask, are there any other seemingly "good" manga with really sub-par endings? I'm just tired of getting invested in a story only to have my enthusiasm ripped from me with the finale. Particularly, anything that ends on an incredibly vague note and leaves a huge amount of unfinished plot-threads.

Kilico.

I seriously considered killing myself after finishing it, *just because* of how fucking bad it was. The first third of the manga seems like it's leading somewhere, the second third makes you begin to strongly question that implication, and the final third makes you want to put a gun in your mouth for believing that you could have been so easily tricked into reading something so poorly written and constructed.

Do not ever read this manga, no matter who recommends it to you or what they tell you about it, or even if a gun is being held to your head against the condition of you reading it.

First off, the setup of a failed confession and then the lack of follow-up is stupid. Second off, it literally timeskipped years just when everyone was breaking down, basically avoiding having to actually show the characters getting over their issues (which, you know, is supposed to be the central focus of the manga).
>>
>>157830164
My problem with Urasawa is that his endings aren't bad per say just anticlimactic, there is no real pay off at the end of most his series. I still enjoy most of his series though and will read his new work later this year ( though still haven't finished billy bat yet since I realized the group scanning it fucked up the chapter order)

Onihime VS. Don't think there is much disagreement there with it's rushed ending leaving a lot of it's plot elements left hanging not to mention a major one that wasn't really resolved in the end. If this series ever gets an anime I hope that the anime expands upon it like the Dragonaut anime.

Urasawa's main problem is that the first parts of his works are usually so stupidly good that he never manages to pay off with the ending. I thought Monster's was fine though.

Worst offender is by far 20th Century Boys. Seriously, I challenge you to read the first volumes without thinking that you're reading something amazing and then to read the last part without being devastated by its shitty ending.

People should have learned by now not to read any of his shit, they are all either bad or left hanging for years because he decided to start on something else without finishing up his previous works.

I still need to read the ending of Billy Bat, but it's actually either my favorite of his work's or very close to it so I might be better off just reading it all again. Maybe after Until Death Do Us Part which FINALLY had the last chapters translated.
>>
>>157842354
Of course a good ending is a plus to any work, but I don't believe it makes or breaks something. I will however say that it depends on the quality of the work - mist posts here mention Urasawa who is a good example, as the quality of his work is high and then it is let down by the quality of the ending.

Endings matter, but they do not *make* a product, in my opinion.
>>
>>157830124
Sidonia would've had a really good ending if Nihei had just slapped a "The End" one or two chapters prior. Why he had to keep going is beyond me.
>>
>>157839532
>>157843453
I think this is a bit simplistic. A bad ending can fuck up a work depending on circumstances, because many works are crafted in structures where separate parts rely on each other. A mystery is generally shit if the solution doesn't justify the buildup, for example - good suspense means nothing if it never comes together well. And any non-episodic story cut off in the middle by cancellation or whatever is basically fucked, even if it was good up to then.

>>157843453
I just hate it when I invest a lot of time consuming a piece of media with a lot of content behind it and its central premise just sort of fizzles out at the end. It makes me feel like I've wasted my time if it's bad enough. I get that endings can be difficult to pull off, especially for long-running works, but at the very least an ending should try to tie up any major loose ends. At the very least, it should at least provide some sort of definite answer to the central mystery if it has one. I still enjoyed Billy Bat, but the ending needlessly cheapened the story.

That manga was good up until the end though where it was just rushed and remaining plot elements were left unanswered.

>>157842605
I read 20th CB twice and while the ending was lack luster compared to the rest of the series it wasn't that shit. Yes it was underwhelming as fuck but the hatred for the ending mainly comes from the fact that Katsumata was only mentioned once or twice at the beginning of the series before suddenly being reviled as the 2nd friend at the very end when everyone who read the manga had forgotten all about him. Hell there is a little theory that Fukubei wasn't the original friend or at least didn't come up all by himself and only took full control of the tittle when Katsumata "Died"
>>
>>157843886
I agree with you. I think if the story depends on a climax then yes, the ending is essential in tying every loose end. As for things that end halfway through due to cancellation or lack of translations - that to me is the most dissatisfying. For me, an incomplete story is worse than one with a bad ending.
>>157846105
I definitely know how you feel, but for me, I take something away from every manga I read or anime I watch, bad ending or not. Do I think Monster, for example, had a bad ending? I would certainly have wanted to see something 'more', but I took it for what it was and I can't imagine a different ending. It didn't cheapen the experience for me, because I had been satisfied with the adventure.
