The most "baffling" ending in anime/manga (SPOILERS)

As in title, what is the most baffling ending in anime/ manga you have experienced? By baffling I don't mean you don't like the ending, but you simply can't understand why the author try to show you one thing for the majority of the series and change it in the last few chapter.

My example:

Code Geass:

Honey and Clover:

Spoiler for Honey and Clover Ending:


Maybe I simply dont understand how the creator is trying to convey, but
what other ending in anime/ manga that u simply cannot understand?

Then they came for me and force me to be a vegan by that time no one was left to speak up.

I liked the Gurren Lagann ending, but one particular element of it really seemed at odds with the general tone of the show, imo.

Amen to this. And mind you, I didn't even read the manga. Just got spoiled to it. Good thing my first impression was right. It was disgusting.

I have to second the Code Geass ending too! But they did leave the door open to a possible sequel though.

Don't get me wrong, it's still a great story, up until the halfway point at least.

I dunno that "particular element" was such a hugely disappointing experience that just seemed to served no purpose other to troll the audience.

Umineko...

Yes, I'm aware there's more, but ending at that point would not be appropriate for a cliffhanger, or really anything.

However, since this was adaptational fail, I'd tag Angel Beats with it. The real ending in the thematic sense happened 3 episodes before the end, and the last part decided to rip off random things ranging from...

Spoiler:


Also Okami Kakushi:
Spoiler:


Another:
Spoiler:


And as for Mai-Hime:
Spoiler:


Not that MD geist is a classic, but the sequel somehow makes it worse...
Spoiler for MG Geist II:


None of these can compare with the winner though...

Spoiler for No.6:

Blasted, Archon, I had actually managed to wipe from my memory a couple of those endings, and now you've reminded me of them!

Anyway, good pics for baffling endings.

I'll object to the topic and list an ending I hate anyway because it contradicted everything the show had worked toward. I'm talking about the conclusion to Clannad After Story.

@Akito

I have something else I found baffling about Clannad AS's ending

Spoiler:


The funny thing about both Clannad AS and Mai-Hime is that both endings

Spoiler:


And here's another one-- even though I consider this the only "good" one listed thus far. Shakugan no Shana III-- I liked the main points and felt happy for everyone. But if you were to ask me to explain the details of Bad Hairdo-Yuji and Shana and the great battle that happened, I wouldn't be able to.
