Ok, I'm on the market again for summer anime festive.

I'm looking at Clannad, Kanon, Shuffle!, and Air. But I need get one thing clear first: what kind of endings do they have?

No spoiler please: so just tell me if they fall in any of these endings without explanation.

- Happy Ending.
- Sad Ending.
- Bittersweet Ending.


Thanks!!

I can't answer for Clannad or Shuffle!, but personally I rather enjoyed both Air and Kanon.
Some people don't like to know about the ending in any way beforehand, therefore your answer is in spoiler tags, still no explanation:

Be warned, both Air and Kanon are rather emotional Dramas so if you don't like the strain, or don't like Dramas, well avoid, I guess...

Also, Air's 13th episode is completely recap, just so you know, that way you aren't expecting anything out of it ;P

Also: Shuffle! Memories is 11 episodes of recap with a couple new scenes, and is broken down according to girl, pretty much a waste of time to watch after watching the regular series, however episode 12 is not a recap but fanservice galore.

Clannad: Happy

Kanon: Dunno (got the anime, haven't watched it yet)

Air: Not finished watching yet..

Shuffle! : Well... in term of story and the ending solitarily, you might group this in the "Happy Ending" category. It's depend on people i guess. To me i categorized the ending as "Sad" or "I hate this anime" or "What The Fuck?!" . I guess plotwise, the whole anime and how the ending imply to all character, you might call this "bittersweet", although "bitterhappy" fit into the equation more..

Didn't the author of the Trinity Blood novels die before he finished the story? Can we really fault it then?

Not my ideas, though. /a/ gets credit.
That makes it sound like the movies are gonna end up telling the story of ReTake.

I mean, it was a really good story, considering it was a doujin, but I doubt they'd ever pull from it. ReTake left more "wait....wut?" feelings at the end than even End of Eva did.

ReTake was tons better than all the official endings put together, not a chance rebuild will be as good. Sad but true :D.

Kare Kano. It was less the 'ending' than the entire second half of the series. Director quit and they ran out of money or something.

Pretty sad since the beginning was awesome.

Well, some more question about endings:

Is the ending in Gunslinger Girl Happy, Sad, BitterSweet? Again, no explanation please.

I know I'm sounding like a sissy for asking, but for the past few months I have been hit very hard (about 80% of the anime I watched) by tear jerking endings so ... I have enough, and opt to stay clear from this kind of ending in a good while..

that and any anime that translates Anija, Aneja, Oniichan/san, Oneechan/san into "Brother" or "Sister" they "translate" into the same thing but they don't "mean" the same thing, don't pretend like they do!!

Edit: at some point I think I might have lost the topic, but, shoganai-ne?
Edit2: Kanon=happy

,
Air=...err... blah ending? I'd say normal but it's just so boring, I guess it would fall closer to sad as previously stated tho,
shuffle=happy..ish

I'd say Gunslinger Girl was bittersweet, but that's just my lingering expression, been quite a while since I saw it. Don't think the ending is any sadder than the series overall at least.

Uuuhm.... I'm a noob at this F/SN stuff... so, UBW and HF ain't a continuation to Fate? Just a "Yes" or "No" answer is enough, please no spoiler :)

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.
