This is mostly an opinionated thread, so there's really no reason to object.

On another note, almost anything with a "reset" ending can go here. By nature they're inherently contradictory and usually never resolve the plot in anyway satisfactory.

Yes, that's true, as much as I love those shows that involved such an ending.

Spoiler for anime with "reset" endings:

Definitely agree about: Usagi Drop, No. 6 and Mai Hime (shudders)

I also agree about not liking Hagu's choice in Honey & Clover but that didn't ruin the series for me.

Disagree about Gurren Lagann. Admittedly it's not what I expected but I still think it works.

My big thing with anime endings is that they should reflect the general feel and tone of the anime as a whole.

So if, for example, your show is all about kicking reason to the curb and overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles, then your ending should be about kicking reason to the curb and overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles...

If, on the other hand, your show is about a group of friends being forced into a Mortal Kombat-esque competition against each other and it results in a rather apocalyptic scenario playing out then maybe your ending shouldn't be all sunshine and lollipops.

Yes, that's the one. There are other problems with it too though. School Days and Clannad AS at least had buildup to their endings. Anohana's ending was godawful but it made "some" sense. That one had absolutely no buildup. It just came out of nowhere.

After rewatching the series many times I've come to accept the ending for Mai-HiME. I'd even go so far as to say that despite it's flaws I think it feels right for the series.

Lol, it's true, but I guess that's why you really didn't like Mai-HiME's ending.

But I have a more pertinent question for you. Would True Tears's ending be considered baffling?

True Tears' ending is a case where emotionally I would have preferred something different, but intellectually I get what it was aiming for and it did accomplish that pretty well. And even though I didn't emotionally like True Tears' ending, I wouldn't say it clashed with the overall feel and tone of the show. The second half of True Tears did have pretty thick and sometimes heavy drama - It was only True Tears' first half that I'd consider mostly lighthearted.

Usagi drop probably only series that made me pull my hair and shout 'Whaaat, why would you do this!? ARGHHH"

As for the others, didn't come on as baffling for me. They weren't the most obvious endings but not a baffling one either.

I don't know Master of Martial Hearts but that does sound like mindf-.

I'm not surprised that nobody ever mentioned Gun x Sword and maybe because not many people actually saw it from start to finish.
