The ending wasn't bad at all. As far as I was concerned


I don't think it was the most satisfying ending in the world, since it left a couple of things in the air, but then so do a lot of anime e.g. FMA. This is especially permissible when you consider the manga wasn't even finished then. The series did a great job, and whilst very episodic and somewhat slice-of-life at times, I felt I got to watch some great characters learn and develop. All that's left to do is to call for a second and third series.

No, I watched Air because because I fell in love with using Kanna in EFZ and MUGEN. Plus I figured after putting Air on hold after stopping some two years ago that I should finish it.

Actually for a harem show, Air's not that bad. Well, actually, considering all the harem shows I've seen (or dropped in disgust), it ranks pretty high. That can either mean I have a very low opinion globally for harem shows, or Air was good. Take your pick.

I really wished they had continued more with the story. It kinda went from being moderately happy to extremely depressing and sad for the last like three episodes!

I never heard of people feeling sad or depress after watching fruit basket. I guess sad and depress because it ended o_O

I beg to differ. The last two episodes were pretty hard-going, emotionally. The series kinda spiralled into despair at that point and there was no respite whatsoever.

The story follows a certain pattern.. sad things happen, Tohru's speeches makes it all better. The ending episodes were a bit more sad but it should be that way. All obstacles can't just be solved with a simple speech. Well it was sort of...

I'm shocked by how hard hitting the ending was to leave people depressed and sad.

Watch that last episode, if you don't believe me. Tell me if the hue ever lightens from grey for the whole 24 minutes. It doesn't... now, I've watched Narutaru and Bokurano and several other dark series, but even they have colour to them whereas the Fruits Basket last episode...

As I say, it's completely different to the rest of the series. It supercedes the previous "problems" too much and it feels really out-of-place.

Eh, Furuba always had a muted greyish tone. Look at the rabbit in his most garish and compare it to other shoujo or harem shows, and Furuba looks downright dull. It's just more noticeable since they never had a dark bad weather day like in the last eps before.
