[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue][SIZE=1][B]the Samaruimist[/B],I have added spoiler tags to your post. Please do not assume that everyone is familiar with a paticular anime. To avoid revealing what happens to someone who has yet to see it, always use spoiler tags when including key plot elements. For easy instructions on how to use them just look here: [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=46199]Spoiler Tags[/URL] If you have any questions please pm myself or another member of the staff. ~Aaryanna[/SIZE][/COLOR][/INDENT]

In Scry-ed I am pretty sure that [spoiler]the Lost Ground[/spoiler] wins. As for Wolve's Rain, it is kinda hard to explain. And for Full Metal, the rest of the story concludes in the Movie. Sorry if that didn't really help. The endings that confuse me are what happened at the ends of Elfen Lied and RahXephon?

[COLOR=Navy][FONT=Comic Sans MS]Well, in the end, they never REALLY say, which I think was a mistake because now my friends agrue with me about it. But I think it's like that so that you can decide for yourself wheiter he is or not. But I really do think that [spoiler] he died, mostly because of the still they showed of him after the credits...[/spoiler] :( [/FONT][/COLOR]

I hafto agree Rahxephons ending confused me as well. And it drives me nuts wondering if [spoiler]spike died or not - . - but i think he did.. I personally think the only reason he went on was to see vicious dead.[/spoiler]

This question is answered in the movie.

All things considered, FMA's final episode had a lot more closure and clarity than I'd expected... particularly after hearing so many complaints about it.

Argeed. But still, I'd hate how the people who watched it felt [B][I]BEFORE[/I][/B] the movie was announced. I would have died, considering I almost shot myself [I][B]KNOWING[/B][/I] that there was a movie...[/FONT][/COLOR]

[color=dodgerblue]hmm.... well so far, for me the only anime endings I've seen have been Wolf's Rain and Samurai Champloo, both of which didn't confuse me, lol. Though I'm not sure if the ending of the first season of Pokemon would count XD[/color]

[quote name='NekoSama101']The Grave of the Fireflys. it was too confusing. mopvies like that are supposed to be good endings. Plus, how did the ending tie into the beginning?[/quote]

[SPOILER]Everytime they were on the train during the movie(the red-hued scenes) they were dead. It was sort of their spirits going to the next world. The little girl(I don't remember the names) had the tin of candy and it remained filled once they were ghosts. She died of starvation. I think you saw her brother dead at the beginning. He died from something(probably sickness, starvation, or sadness) in a train station-type place after his sister had died.[/SPOILER] It's been about a year since I've seen it, so I am not too clear on details.

For Cowboy Bebop, not even the creators have a definite answer as to whether or not [SPOILER]Spike dies.[/spoiler] I think he did. I can talk for hours on this, too. ;)

I did find S-cry-ed confusing, but mainly disappointing. I am a hopeless idealist most of the time when it comes to anime so I wanted a happy everybody-gets-what-they-want ending.

[COLOR=#656446]Great! Good job, you guys! I see no NGE yet!

Erhm. I was a bit confused by [b]Samurai Deeper KYO[/b]'s ending. [spoiler]I ain't sure why Benitora heard Yuya's voice (considering that she was peddling in the boondocks) and whether the Sanada clan really was the army outside Edo Castle. And that surprised look in Yukimura's face was a mystery too.[/spoiler] I need to see it again![/COLOR]

The ending of Fruits basket confused me. I mean, what was this [spoiler]core of the zodiac thing that Akito had?[/spoiler]
Same thing goes for the ending of Shaman King. [spoiler]After god knows how many episodes no one actually became the shaman king! Ok, maybe that one actually annoyed rather than confused me[/spoiler]

[quote name='TheRebel_Nikolas]I'm not so much [i]confused[/i] as I am [i]wondering[/i]. Did [spoiler]Spike really die[/spoiler'] at the end of Cowboy Bebop? Or is it there to leave everyone wondering?[/quote]

Simple answer ,Yes Spike [spoiler] did die[/spoiler]. However people have this whole conspiracy that Spike[spoiler] is alive[/spoiler]. Which would totally destroy the point the anime was trying to make. So definetly yes but you will run into a few crackpots that will argue no.

Blue Gender totally confused me at the end by only telling the main charcter what was going on and not the viewer.

[size=1]All things considered, the twenty six episodes of the anime Fruits Basket is only a segment of the whole story line. Akito is [spoiler]struck with sickness and filled with spite towards the other zodiac members do to his illness. He cannot live a normal life, as the other zodiac members can live more of a normal life than he ever would. He finds controlling them his let-go of stress. So I am assuming.[/spoiler] The whole story continues on in the manga. There are rumors of a second season of Fruist Basket, nothing definate yet, from what I know.

The ending of Wolf's Rain... Hm, I always wonder about that. It ends off in such a sad note, but shows that [spoiler]it is all a wheel that cannot stop turning. It stops and ends in the same area.[/spoiler] A full circle ending, I think. Even though it is confusing, I still think it was a fairly good ending.

Samurai Champloo, I think it was showed that [spoiler]the three were finally at peace and could go on their lives in separate ways. They had changed since the first episode, and I think the change of clothes signified that in some aspects.[/spoiler][/size]

[quote name='hentai#1']When I first watched Evangelion the ending completly blew me by :animeswea . Though I understand more of it now since watching it again, but some things are still confusing. :animestun[/quote]

I agree that anime ending was insanely hard to follow. I prefer EoE as the ending than the TV ending. The TV ending was good but it just didnt rap the series up or provide any closure.

[quote name='Nadeshiko']the one that confused me was .hack//sign i didnt get how it ended....[/quote]

Yeah well .hack always continues so i think it just left it open for another form of .hack to be created actually [spoiler] i think it showed that Morganna the big spooky voice who pretended to be Tsukasa mom is still alive in the game[/spoiler]... like after .hack//sign which is technically a prologue there's the .hack video games series for the Ps2 that creates the next .hack senario(i think i spelled that wrong) the .hack games give you .hack//limnality...whose ending i did not understand but then again i haven't beaten the game yet... and then there 's .hack//The Legend of the Twighlight...which umm i would say read both the manga and anime b/c they're totally diff...the manga's only 3 books long ^_^ the anime only follows the manga for like all of book one which is really where all the pointless stuff is that's non-relavent to the storyline ^_^

Witch Hunter Robin confused me i mean [spoiler] did Robin and Amon (i dunno if thats spelled right) die ???[/spoiler]

and it took me a whiel to figure out Wolf's Rain too ^_^

The ending of Fullmetal Alchemist confused me. I really didn't get the part of how Ed and Al were in like different worlds and Al had his body back and Ed didn't. Maybe it is because I haven't seen all of the episodes... Can someone tell me please? :help: :animestun

[color=darkgreen][size=1]

[color=red][B]*Spoiler Alert*[/B][/color] Because I hate tags.

Seeing as how much Spike and Vicious were played up to be connected with one another through out the series, I think it's fitting that they [spoiler]killed one another.[/spoiler] Aswell, Spike was building up his true wanting for death, seeing as how he had cheated it so many times in the past. So yeah, I believe he [spoiler]is dead,[/spoiler] and I'm happy for him.[/color][/size]

[color=darkgreen][size=1]

[B][color=red][size=2]*Big Spoiler Alert*[/size][/color][/B] Because I still hate tags.

In the show, Fullmetal Alchemist, the characters live in a [spoiler]dimension which is alternate to our own. The story takes place during WWI in our world. The thing that seperates our two worlds is the gate. Because of the Gate, all deceased souls from our dimension pass through the gate, and provide the people on the other side with Alchemic Energy. [/spoiler]

When Ed passed through the [spoiler]gate after being killed by Envy, his soul fused with the body of himself in our dimension. When he dies in that body, Al at the same time uses himself (the Philospher's Stone) to re-connect Ed with to his dead body back in their dimension. But because Al is the Philospher's Stone, he wipes his body from existance, however, his soul is still floating out there.[spoiler]

When Ed awakens, [spoiler]alive again, he realizes the sacrafice which Al has made, and then takes it upon himself to actually bring Al back, mind, body, and soul (as Hohenheim had explained) by using his own mind and body as alchemic material. However, instead of actually sacraficing himself, Ed again transfers himself to the other side of the gate, but instead of just his soul, he brings back his mind, body, and soul just as Hohenheim did. However, the transmutation works, and Al is brought back as a 10 year old child once again, without any memory of what had occured prior to his and Ed's first contact with the Gate.

Hohenheim theorizes, that instead of Ed's body as a sacrafice, Ed and Al's experiences and basic memories from the past 5 years were given up as some weird alchemic material to base Al's being on. The equivalent exchange law worked upon a spiritual level, I believe.[/spoiler] I have yet to see the movie, but I think it's a safe bet that Hohenheim is right.

[B]P.S.-[/B] Ed's Automail [spoiler]does work, [/spoiler]if it wasn't made apparent when he lifted his arm out the train window in the final screen.

---------------------------------------------------------

As for me, nearly every episode of [B]"Paranoia Agent"[/B] confused the hell out of me. So, actually, I was pretty out of it through out the series. Another would be [B]"Akira"[/B] the movie, but I don't think that was meant to be understood.[/color][/size]

I have added spoiler tags to your post [B]The Boss[/B], even if you do not like spoiler tags we ask that you use them when talking about events in a series that would spoil it for someone who has yet to see it. Littering one's posts with unmarked spoilers is extremely rude, to other members as well as to the moderators who have to go in there and add tags. Members who repeatedly divulge big spoilers and refuse to start tagging their posts themselves (even when warned) will run the risk of being banned. Please do not post spoilers with out tags. If you have any questions feel free to pm myself or another member of the staff. ~indifference[/COLOR][/INDENT][/SIZE]

I just hate spoiler tags being used in threads where your supposed to be spoiling things. In your post, you didn't really explain what happened or why it happened. You just said what happened, which isn't going to help anything. Also, you got some things wrong, like Ed's automail not working, which isn't true. Also, it is possible for a person wanting more than one person's opinion on a subject. Aswell, your grammar wasn't all that, making things annoying to read. No offense.[/color][/size]
