Once the Fugil loop happened we all knew how this would end. Still I do believe only a Lisha or a open ending would be a shit show ending.

Actually it happened earlier than that, Lux proposed to Krulcifer in front of everyone in Volume 2 and got the engagement officially approved by her family. Too bad he got cold feet

We seriously need more harem ending......
The OTP ending is like poking into a hornet nest , we already saw how people go extreme salty when the girl they want don't win ( and yes i was one of them ) .

Well it goes beyond shipping, it has something to do with the writing too.

In Hundred, Claire was a better written character than Emilia, the author made more effort to make her likable.

In Infinite Stratos, Houki had her chance to get with Ichika before any of the other girls showed up, and never got past the friend zone. Not to mention her violent abusive temperamental side, which never got fixed.

As for this story, Lisha did have a decent chance and built good chemistry with Lux in Volume 1. They built a good rapport over the Drag-Rides and it was her mad-scientist mode that drew them closer. She could have pulled Airi into the group too, and shared their expertise on Drag-Rides.

Instead she goes into Princess mode and tries to be possessive of Lux, basically tries to make him her slave. I think some of the readers got turned off by that. Especially when Celistia showed up and demonstrated how a true Oujo-sama should act. Airi has that Oujo-sama air too, and clearly shows that Lisha is second-rate in that department.

In all Lisha is still a decent character but she's much better when she sticks to Drag-Rides and problem solving. As a ruler, she tries hard but just doesn't make the cut.

At least Lisha is so much better other than shitty heroines out there.

Yeah, Lux does love them all, but through out the series the harem cast has spent their time trying to outwit their competitors for Lux's affection. They were rivals to one another, and while one person can love multiple people, my main gripe with a series that has a well flesh cast of characters and development is when all of the rivalries is simply resolved by they're all fine with sharing one guy despite fighting over him for 20 volumes.

A OTP ending wouldn't have been a copout by any means, Saijaku Bahamut is honestly my favorite LN series and its mostly because of how well the characters are flesh out and written. Plus there are actually pretty funny comedic moments too.
A copout would have been a Lisha ending, out of all the cast she has the least amount of chemistry with Lux, "the first girl ending".

It also wouldn't be cowardly on the author's part if it did end in a OTP, I genuinely think that the pressure from the fanbase push authors to the Harem ending, out of fear that the they'll be alienated for not choosing to resolve the romantic rivals without any loss, the harem ending. That's not to say I am bashing the "harem ending". I still really like the series, but the fact that IT MUST BE a certain ending or its crap is just ludicrous when the series can end in a well written OTP. The fact that all the characters fighting over interpersonal relationship simply ceased and they're okay with just sharing Lux is a Deus Ex Machina. (At least in series like DxD EVERYONE was alluding to the harem)

Most importantly its just my .02 on the matter.
Yeah, my bad for getting your username wrong.

Anyway, as Sierra said, in this series the True Harem route was always the best way to go.

Also, in reality it's the open ending in a harem series that's done because of the author's fear of being hated. The True Harem thing is rare and new and only authors with enough balls do it.

OTP series are also good, but a harem series where the MC likes all of the girls shouldn't go that route. If he likes them all, he should be with them all. If you want an OTP ending, we have Sword Art Online, Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuutan, and other OTP series for that that were meant to be OTP from the beginning. Saijaku was always moving toward a True Harem ending.

I agree with Ruki about Lisha though. A Lisha OTP ending wouldn't have been good, but she herself still isn't that bad.

But people who wanted a OTP ending should understand that if it had been an OTP ending, the one winning would have been Lisha and not any of the other more likeable girls like Krulcifer or Celis. That's just how it is.

Atta boy Lux, I knew he wouldn’t let us down, and damn even getting Celis for his first time, funny how she went from being the second to last main character (and harem member) introduced To being the first proposed to this

Tho now I need my Krulcifer spoilers

Prediction: by the time Lisha gets her turn, Lux is in no shape to continue, she'll have to wait a little longer

(Don't worry, she eventually gets her turn off screen and has a baby too. Along with her baby sister.)

Now the big questions is what happens with Airi (I'm guessing no, but we'll see). Don't worry, if she enters the harem it will be revealed that she is not Lux's blood-related sister.

I'd be okay if we skipped Lisha, just focus on the true main girl is all I care about. Shipping wars will never end!
