There has to be a happy ending for Sousuke and Kaname i just cannot see why Gatoh wouldn't end it in a good way after all these years of hardships and waiting for Sousuke, Kaname and US!
Uh, WTF? PoD is just different style than the seem ingly-comedic TV series and it's simply epic. That being said, Nadesico isn't just a "LOL THAT HAPPENS" comedy but kinda involves topics about life------and PoD just represents it admirably.

I also like to see happy ending as well, but sometimes I can't stand people who insist "it is a must". Unless the whole thing about Whispered is dealt, there won't be a possible "good" ending for the two. As a sidenote, I'm treating FMP as a real-life story so I believe that deaths are deaths, and hard life can be no end. That's the way I enjoy the thing after DBD.

I would love to have a happy ending as well; however I agree with Hunter, real life is not like that. Also, lots of the animes, books, mangas and series that I like the most don't really have a happy ending. In my case, I rather to have a good ending that don't origins questions like "...and what happen with something/someone?"
But, I insist, Sousuke and Chidore will have their "happy ending" if they are together again, even if that means dying for both...

i doubt that will be considered a happy ending. My ending would be tath somehow Sophia is dealt with and therefore whispereds are no more. Then they can be together again and go back to the school like Sousuke promised, etc etc

It is hard for me to treat something with massive piloted humanoid machines that have the ability to create energy shields and such, and people with the ability to tap into a mystic information center.

I mean humans' lives within but not the background of the story.

Well, with all the seriousness happening between Sousuke and Chidore in the current novels, one can hope that things turn out well with those two at the end. From what I have read in the postings and in the translations, it appears that returning to school life is a definate no. So one can hope that if they both survive this ordeal, that they are given an ending that suits the fans of this series.

Sorry, but I just had to share this. I found this very funny when I was translating chapter 2 of NOT. Although I think HunterSeeker already shared this with everyone, I just have to let it out:

Spoiler for Wraith's real name:

Just 2 more novels left until FMP is totally finished for the English audience. O_o

(Unless you count the other 10 novels that deal with side stories)

Yeah. Agree.

Currently, they don't have it. Probably thanks to the economic crisis we're having.

Yep. With major corporations tanking, it wasn't hard to think that a market that, at the moment, is only a niche market in the West would be severely hurt. From this point, things are only going to get worse as well.
