Basically Keima and Chihiro is more or less confirmed despite not getting a final kiss. All the other girls knows that Keima is in love with Chihiro BTW.

Poor Haqua, what about her?

This doesn't feels like the end of the series but the end of an arc.

Btw, Keima got rejected, ha, karma. I don't think Chihiro end is confirmed because she rejected him, sure there are chances just saying that is confirmed would make the parte where she turns him down a waste of pages that could have usted to explain other things.

Sounds like a lame ending. What's with all the series ending in a shitty way...

I have heard some posit that the series got ax'd, and Wakaki had way less time to wrap things up than he hoped.... And although it is not based on any hard facts, my opinion at present leans in the same direction.

I wonder the same, many manga have a lame ending that are open or just ignores away the questions about raised by the series itself. Btw, if those are the contents of the letter its doesn't makes sense to be embarrased and then getting wings, wtf o_O.

Many things felt forced and I can't say I'm satisfied, I'm borderline indifferent and have a "Wait, is that all?" feeling.

Yep. This basically destroyed the ending if it's true. A major point that was raised, reraised... and then just dropped like a hot potatoe? Seems weird... why introduce it then in the first place? I have to wonder if it would have actually been better to not reveal it instead of doing this.

I guess the ending was decided during writing it...

The letter has nothing to do with Tenri's wings, anyway. Sad that her wings remained a Deus ex Machina.

haha thats why i dont get too excited when manga's end, 80% of them have lame ass endings. I thought this might have a shot to be in that slim 20% cus it had a good set up chapter, but failed to capitalize on it. I also find it hard to believe this manga was axed, it was normally ranked in the top 8 of shonen sunday i thought. Plus around 3/4 of it was animated, seemed like it made decent money.

i'd agree with omimon and say it was more or less a chihiro ending. The rejection was expected since thats their relationship in a nut shell. Once I see the scan i could be more certain, cus if she is blushing while telling him to go die, its obv her being tsun and a def chihiro ending. With her asking him out to tea its pretty much a done deal anyway.

AFAIK, it was expicitly stated at some point, that the wings activated/growed after reading the letter.

Chihiro came back and asked Keima out for tea, meaning she still loves him, and we have a Chihiro end.

I like the ending, and I thank God Wakaki didn't do like some wanted, and have Keima make love confessions to the other girls, which would have made for a truly lame ending of epic proportions. A harem ending would have been a total suckfest.

But she didn't read the letter until recently... Or did she read all three letters in the past? Two of them - yes, but are we sure she was able to grow the wings because she had read the third one?

Yes that is what I am saying. It was said that Diane's wings could not grow for some reason. THEN after Tenri read the last letter, Diane suddenly could grow the wings. But if we believe the spoilers, then that makes absolutely no sense.

Yes. These and other points regarding its large popularity and commercial success are often brought up to say there is no way it could be ax'd. And I would agree.

But it still stands that the ending is out of nowhere for most of his fans and that he is quite capable of wrapping up very stories (and very effectively too) as shown in much of the rest of this work.

At the moment most can only speculate that it was indeed ax'd.

Neither solution "makes sense", and based on those two options one either has to believe that Wakaki gave up or that he was forced to end things. Most incline to his being forced to end things based on Wakaki's track record.

But this is only the fan reaction and only based on what little information we have. There could be other pieces of the puzzle (like his unannounced next work) which will suddenly clear things up, but we now most are in the dark and forced to speculate due to lack of hard info.

Donno. The ending was rushed to little surprise, but it's a pretty good ending nevertheless.

Since when has there ever been a series that involved any sort of shipping at all have an ending where there wasn't complaining?

Answer: Never. There always is complaining. There always has been. There always will be. There is no such thing as an ending that will satisfy everybody.

A series like this with all sorts of shipping options is going to create just as much complaining.

If this is the ending you wanted, then great. If this wasn't what you were hoping for then at least remember the good times you had with this story and move on to the next one.

Sometimes in life you just don't get what you want.
