Anime with ultimately satisfying endings

How is this anime? I've been meaning to watch it for a while but I don't know if I'd like it.

I think @Plk_Lesiak is pretty close to the mark. It has very grand ambitions and the original material obviously was a lot more fleshed out than the anime was. The anime has some very shaky moments, including some bad production even, and feels rushed despite having 24 episodes - I think there's enough material there for 4 seasons, not just 2. Nonetheless when it hits its mark it is very touching and satisfying, with some gruesome moments and is relentless in its treatment of characters, but satisfies the criteria for an ultimately satisfying ending. I gave it a 7/10, good overall and certainly don't feel I wasted my time... but then I watch an awful lot of anime. It's a bit like sousei no onmyoji, flawed but satisfying.

I've added Uma Musume Pretty Derby.  Even though I'm embarrassed about even saying I watched it given its childish premise and execution, I did enjoy it, and it meets the criteria for this list. ^_^

I see it even has a decent rating on MAL! Interesting, I was definitely scared off by the absurd premise, but I might give it a chance after all. :)

Although the fact all the girls are named like racehorses is super weird... :michiru:

That's because they are racehorses, though the only thing horse about them appears to be the ears and tails...

I didn't say it was awesome, just that it was satisfying enough, which is all that's required to be recommended here. It was still overall a fun watch. It could have done with maybe yet another season or perhaps it would have actually dragged if they did that since they didn't have more material? Who knows. To me it seemed they only had a simplistic idea for the ending and executed it. I didn't feel they had more material even if a lot of viewers wanted more. Sometimes if you get what you ask for, you'll be disappointed. I still gave it an 8/10 overall.

I'm only interested in shows with HAPPY endings, not kinda positive sombre ones, and no unresolved freaking harems.

I don't know if it has been mentioned in this thread or not, but if it wasn't - add Maison Ikkoku to the list. The show was frustrating sometimes, but the ending was great and ultimately satisfying indeed.

It definitely was, but check the opening post, I keep updating it and I'd put it there already a while back.

Spoiler

That ending was not satisfying. Reincarnation with no hints whatsoever about who they now are to each other. Memories likely erased meaning they're different people now. If, and i say IF they'd ended it with her saying something like "is that you darling?" or something then it would perhaps been a most epic ending, but nope. They just met and touched hands without us as viewers getting any information. Not to mention that they're too damn young in that scene.

A bit too much spoilering in your post for my liking. But I thought there was enough implied to

Spoiler

say that they would definitely be forever together and not even time and space could draw them apart. That's a pretty conclusive ending even if they weren't adults and a couple in the final scene itself.

Yep, but who are they now? Who will they become? What point is there if they've forgotten everything that has happened between them? I watched a series with 2 people i adored, the ending erased them and replaced them with someone else and called it a good ending. It's only a good ending by the fact that they reincarnated, but that's all.
