I watch 74 fucking episodes of this and I get an open ending? Why?
Yeah.. I personally would have liked to see johan die.
Because it's overrated shit.
Just kidding, I actually liked it quite a bit.
Because Johan never existed.
The ending enraged me too.
Are you people retarded? If Johan died the nurse would've made the bed.
Gurren Lagann, not so good.
because the entire series was a battle of ideals. if you're satisfied with it being ended with a bullet, you'd have a better time watching fucking power rangers or something.
Johan not dying when he was killed twice was fine, but having him stay in a coma or at least going to jail would have been a better ending.
But nobody dies in power rangers, checkmate atheists.
that would be like batman shooting the joker. having a clear winner would be a cop out, regardless of how it happens.
I feel bad for Grimmer.
It's a 2deep4u ending.
If you want to understand why Johan is no longer there, you need to understand Johan himself.
Something of which mostly no one, not even the characters in the story, were able to do even up to the very end. Even Tenma who thought he understood Johan and forgave him completely feel for Johan's final lie which gave enough insensitive for Johan to cast doubt on Tenma and go back on a rampage.
Bits of information of why Johan kills is shown everywhere in the anime/manga. You just have to search for them.
