    that would've made it stupid and cheesy
    it'd be too predictable for the romance between Ashitaka and San to escalate to that level
    but Miyazaki went to a different approach with the ending
    he put a D-kind-of feel (Vampire Hunter D)
    after the hero saves the day, he just rides away and doesn't get the girl
    every other story does the opposite
    the ending to Mononoke-Hime angers and annoys many, but personally, I don't really care
    it was a great movie with awesome music, a good story, and a decent ending
    I love my girlfriend.

    I agree with innerhell, this is very typical for Miyazaki and frankly doesn't take away from the movie (which was awesome). Would it have made sense for either of them to leave the worlds they knew and were apart of just to be with the other, when they could see each other as often as they liked? Furthermore do you physically have to be with someone all the time in order to love them? Just cause something doesn't turn out like we want it doesn't mean it was the wrong ending or bad.

    The movie is partially a way for Miyazaki to express his views about the environment, didn't you know? The point of the ending is San going back to help the environment, and Ashitaka going to help the industry. They love each other, so it's so of subtlely suggesting compromise between environment and industry.

    Also: Innerhell is right. That would have been cheesy.

    the ending was okay, if you ask me. (of course, i usually think everythings okay when it comes to movies so who knows if i actually mean it)

    You want to know the ending? Look around you.

    The movie takes place "in ancient times when gods still roamed the earth". Industry is just starting up.
    Rather he wanted to portray the very beginnings of the seemingly insoluble conflict between the natural world and modern industrial civilization – a conflict that has continued to this very day. -- courtesy of www.princess-mononoke.com
    Miyazaki is famous for telling stories that express his concerns about today's world.
