Agreed. I don't know what it is about animes that make them do this. And it is animes and not even mangas. Case in point, Akira. I know the anime was completed before the manga, but the manga had a good, proper ending that tied everything up. Unlike the anime, that went completely nebulous route and tried to make things all faux-existential.

I thought Evangelion's ending was retconned in those two movies that were released afterwards (although I've never seen the series or movies, so I may not know what I'm talking about here).

Re: Anime that you wish had proper endings.

The creator had a nervous breakdown and the show reflected that as it drifted away from reality. According to anime legend the follow-up movies were a giant FU to the studio for making him return to it and he took it out on the characters.

The wikipedia link to the show is amazing. I recommend any fan of the show to read through it.

That would... um... explain "that scene" (do I really need to point out which one?).

Re: Anime that you wish had proper endings.

So will the "new" Evangelion have the proper ending?
