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

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).

Bottom line: this movie DOES NOT have a happy ending. Unless you're Thanos.

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.

The ending is bittersweet - the characters are alright and happy, mostly, but sad about certain things that have happened / are happening. Also, certain plot elements are left open (a few bad-ending-like things), presumably because the series will continue.

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

!SPOILERS! God is defeated by Jack, who quickly fills the position. Cas is in The Empty (SuperMegaTurbo Hell), and stays there until being briefly mentioned by Bobby in the last scene. Dean dies while fighting "clown-vampires", getting impaled by a large screw sticking out from the wall (OSHA Violation). Sam lives on, without his brother and starts a family, but eventually dies of old age. They are reunited in heaven. Cas and Jack are absent for the finale. Not necessarily sad (more bittersweet), but extremely disappointing for long-time fans.

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 multiple endings to the game, some of which could be considered sad / upsetting.

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

MAJOR SPOILERS: Very dark, even for the horror movie. Not only does the main character die, but her emotional arc is unresolved, she dooms her main ally, and they do not manage to kill or even hurt the thing that’s killing them. Seems like it’s setting up for a sequel or something, nothing is resolved.

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.

One Main Character Dies, One is let go. So its in a way, bittersweet.
