kirant tries to list best anime endings - need list of good endings

So over many, many months this year I did an intensive search on what I felt were the best anime openings.

As I mentioned to Droote in that topic, I might someday get to working on another list for endings. Endings don't get a lot of love compared to their opening counterparts but I felt this would be a nice direction to go next for "long term projects I'll likely never finish".

Anyways, the concept of this topic is pretty much the same: list every anime ending you feel deserves consideration as some of the top endings in anime.

Thanks to anybody who helps out with this project.

I might come by with more later, but just off the top of my head I'll put forward this one. It's very simple, so may not be in the running depending on your definition of "best." I took best to mean 'most fitting end for its anime.' Also Yoko Kanno.

Don't really watch endings but here we go:




And Lucky Star for alternating the ending every episode in a creative way.

In no particular order...

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - "Hare Hare Yukai"
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - "Tomare!"
Puella Magi Madoka Magica - "Magia"
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - "Roundabout"
Clannad - "Dango Daikazoku" (plants the seed for big emotional moments later)
Heartcatch Precure! - "Tommorow Song ~Ashita no Uta~"
Angelic Layer - "The Starry Sky"
Casshern Sins - "Aoi Hana"
Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! - "Inside Identity"
Cowboy Bebop - "The Real Folk Blues"
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - "Minna no Peace"
Nichijou - "Zzz" (the "calm" to the opening's "crazy")
FLCL - "Ride on Shooting Star"

I'll come up with more later. But that's off the top of my head (and from the MP3s on my phone).

EDIT: Added one two.

After scrolling through my MAL and some memory jogging(including youtube embeds if i could find them):
Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Magia
Shinsekai yori- Wareta Ringo



The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Hare Hare Yukai

Bakemonogatari - Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari
Monogatari Series Second Season(ED 3) - Snowdrop
Legend of the Galactic Heroes(ED 2) - Tabidachi no Jyokyoku
At the end of most episodes this song is in, it's just an instrumental variation that plays over the final scenes, providing what I believe is a very fine mood with which to end the episode.



Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei - Zessei Bijin




That's it for now. Might add some later on after I look around some more.

By best I have to be much more subjective than I was for openings...openings have real meaning and purpose for setting the tone of an anime. Endings can go anywhere as they're a last note for an episode. They need to leave the episode on a strong, memorable note. Memorability without full attachment to the anime is something I'm looking to rank as well and may consider a viable alternative to excellent fit.

The general criteria I have is art quality, song quality, memorability or connection to the anime.

Alright, I'll add my second batch. I'll not embed the videos to keep the post from being bulky.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBu20c5156U
First is Kill Me Baby, as one of the most memorable eds I've seen lately.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lX-yENHkeMo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4IkgjXboAI
Some K-On, which definitely doesn't skimp on quality animation nor music-wise.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6P78on2ZiI
The second FMA Brotherhood ed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0WURobbqCw
And Minami-Ke's Colorful Days as a wildcard.
