The easiest endings to get are not happy ones, no [and there are many different endings, much like the Japanese dating sims on which the game is based]. There is a true", happy ending that you can get but it requires a lot of extra time and effort that most players don't put in (it requires the player to make several save files and pursue each girl individually right up to the point where one of the girls commits suicide, which cannot be prevented - the true, happy ending features the characters who committed suicide, Sayori and Yuri, being alive and happy, and Sayori thanks the player for devoting so much time and energy to make each girl feel special).

that's a big debate, the main female character seems happy at the end, but it's either because she found a new 'family' or has lost her mind

This is a poorly worded question. Should be "Does it have a happy ending." This is ambiguous and looks like it's meant to confuse people.

Not sure why everybody says it has a happy ending. It definitely does not, and is actually one of the more emotionally devastating movies I’ve seen.

There are two possible endings, and both are pretty big downers. One is slightly better than the other, but not by much.

Many unhappy endings for all three player characters depending on player choices and success at quick time events. It is rather difficult to obtain a happy ending, though several exist.

I was spoiled by the previous comment. (There really should be an option to tag spoilers appropriately, like on Reddit or Discord...) Nonetheless, I still watched the entire show and I'm SO glad I did, the anime is a masterpiece. [SPOILERS] The ending itself isn't sad, it's an open ending. Even though he does die at the end of the manga, Ash is actually alive in the anime. There's an official character chart by mappa (the animation studio) that depicts each character with a status (alive/deceased) and their relationships to other characters. Ash's picture was grayed out first, which set his status to "deceased". However! The character chart was updated, and now his picture is in color again, meaning he's alive.

There is a bittersweet "Yay, I'm alive!" ending for a handful of characters. At least 10 times that many named characters died, and who knows how many thousands of extras and CGI characters! As someone else said, it depends on who (and what) you rooted for.

The series finale is terrible, do not watch it (they basically threw all the character and story development to trash, killed a suicidal character and heavily implied death is the only way to happiness)

Most statements don't end well, and writer Jonny Sims has consistently alluded to the series as a whole being a tragedy. It's still ongoing though.

The ending is somewhat bittersweet, it’s dark, the antagonist blows up, and everything is kind of a disaster, but Veronica asks the reject Martha if she wants to have a movie night, forgetting about popularity and finding friendship in each other

This question is a bit obscure for TV shows. The show has not ended but many of the episodes have very depressing endings, especially the 11th episode of every season.
