    I Like when it seems like its gonna be a happy ending, but when the ending comes the bad guy somhow comes to life and kills evereyone that is celebrating the happy victory. so it ends up a sad ending

    It kinda depends on what ypu're watching, but in many ways, it just depends on how the story line is and the characters. Though personally, i think sad endings are better not only because it seems more realistic (since not everything has happy ending) but the way it just happens to be.

    Re: Happy endings or sad endings?

    it really depends. some anime are better off with a happy ending, whereas others would be better off with a sad ending. as for which i prefer, i don't really have a preference. before, i used to love happy endings because i was naive and believed that everything ended "happily ever after". but sad endings make things seem more realistic, so i'd say it's a balance.

    I'd rather a sad ending... Why not watch your favorite character die at the end? (...Spike... Curse you Vicious!) But that's the difference between anime from most television or movies.

    I have to agree with the Shermanator. How fulfilling would Cowboy Bebop have been if Spike had lived? Or, on the flipside, would you have the same outlook on Vash the Stampede if he had just killed Knives? The ending of an anime (or any TV or movie) should leave the viewer with some sense of closure. X, while it made some people angry, did just that, so it fulfilled its duty as an "ending."

    Some stuff, however, will have an ambiguous ending that I have occasionally enjoyed. Take Perfect Blue, for example. While it traditionally was a null ending (neither happy nor sad), It stilll did its job. Same thing in Ghost in the Shell (take your pick of 1 or 2).

    I think it's difficult to make a blanket "I like happy endings" or "I want to cry at the sad ending." The tone of the particular work should set the stage for how it will end, and that ending should fit. The only way I could say I didn't like an ending is if it felt like a completely different person wrote it, or if it took a turn that was not fitting for the piece.
