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.

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

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.

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.

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

There is definitely hope in the ending, but I wouldn't call it happy

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

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 only season currently out has a rather upsetting ending, but season 2 has been confirmed, so hopefully it will be better.

There are a couple endings where nobody does (aside from his mother), but in these endings his game is rated terribly.

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.

Even without the final episode, I can safely say this will not be a happy ending. As a historical event, you can look up the IMDB page and Google character names to see who died, how and when. I can safely say the survival of main characters will be non-existent to one or two.

[SPOILERS] The lovers do not stay together in the end. However, to me, the ending was still hopeful. You have the sense that the relationship has been a positive experience overall, and Elio has his whole life ahead of him to meet other people and continue to explore his sexuality.

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.

It is bitter sweat for sure. A lot of supporting characters die and a main character suffers survivors guilt. Two main characters marry and a third main character dies, but it is implied they are at peace.

Hopeful and satisfying ending. Not fairy tale happily ever after, though. Not like I feel gypped after watching the movie.

it's complicated. there are multiple endings, but even the best one is fairly depressing/bittersweet.
