I really like Aki's idea, kind of en lieu of the more recent game endings, with the sun gradually setting on the characters, and the background changing.

What do you guys think if the ending music plays before the episode finishes? Maybe about 15 seconds before the actual ending credits? Some anime like Gundam Seed does it. Just to hear your opinion.

I'm against it. I find it distracting.

I enjoy an occasional song or piece of music before the ending, but only if it's related to the current story.

Oh I see, that's ok. But I hope we won't add, "to be continued" after every episode like that anime cause that would be worse.

Well I'm pretty okay with that, but maybe not as much as 15 seconds, a few seconds will do. And maybe not all the episodes, ending song could show up before the show ends depending on the episode requirements (atmosphere etc) like how they did it for soul eater's last episode. But I do agree with what video fan said, ending the anime off with to be continued for every episode just makes it looks like some kid's show... (like what happened in the pokemon anime>A>)

Actually if I had my way I would prefer how they did it in Gundam Seed, like on some episodes its even more than 30 seconds. But that only goes IF our ending music is really a master piece. On the Seed/Destiny anime most of their ending themes are good so I love listening to it before ending.

Yeah let's not put in a to be continue. Even if it is a two parter and let us not please add a talking narrator which says "our heroes" (Seriously that makes me sick)

I like prelude to ending songs when the episode is about some touching moment kinda idk how to put it to words>W> Yea I like how gundam seed does it too, tho I hardly watch it hahaXD

This may seem contradicting to what I say before but on the other hand to be continued also makes the anime look somewhat similar to the game so it's also not all bad (comparing pros and cons>W>), since poke special follows the game and all. But narrator wise... AGAINST IT. DEFINITELY AGAINST IT.eAe

I dont think that's a terrible idea, so long as we pull it off correctly. It can be a very nice and subtle way to end an episode. It makes the ending seem much less 'sudden' and more of an ending to the episode. It makes the episode and the ending feel much more connected, in my opinion.

There are many other animes that pull off the 'start song just before end of episode' thing. Actually, a lot more than you probably think. MANY of the best animes do that. You barely even notice it because the song's beginning is soft, and then suddenly the episode ends and you get a good ending. Animes like Toradora!, Kimi ni Todoke, Ouran High School Host Club...you might not have noticed, but they do do that.

Still, those few seconds adds a real feel of...completion to the episode, right? It makes the whole thing feel like more of a whole, rather than just opening-content-ending. Like I said, it's a really subtle effect but it really does something!

but well you might have realized that endings with such effects are normally shoujo mangas, which have a more tranquil feel most of the time when it ends. Well there are times when it won't fit too, we'll have to think about it. And it also depends on the music we will get from the music team in the future.

Yeah other than Gundam Seed and another Fushigi Yuugi, no other anime (that I know) does playing the ending music for more than 10 seconds before the actual ending.

My best suggestion is that after deciding on ending themes and everyone finds them really really good then we make a vote if we will do this style (playing music before ending) and maybe a secondary poll of how many seconds. Oh also after the last episode of each saga we could play the whole end song and a clip show from random episodes of the saga.

cool and that would make things more special when in normal eps endings start on cue but the more meaningful ones start earlier and allXD

Or we could intentionally have good cliff hangers on all the episodes by mixing up some scenes if necessary. As long as the story isn't affected we could do some chapters/scenes before others and have cliff hangers on all episode endings. We don't necessarily end the episodes after the end of chapters.

I have confidence that more than 2 chapters will fit an episode so example on the Mt Moon chapter we could stop the episode when Koga appears with the Rockets, or when red is at pewter gym and after the semi finals we could stop the episode when Brock is observing him.

Ahem...I just realized, that maybe we shouldn't forget that we should actually put credits and disclaimers on our opening and endings. XD Like, how in normal animes they have that 10-second thing where they say sponsors, instead we'll have a really long disclaimer and attributions. And at the beginning AND possible the ending we'll have credits. =3

We'll decide that once we're more into the project, lets not dwell on the thinking/dreaming aspect for too longXD

I dont personally think, in a Shounen based manga fanime, we should have the slow draw of the ending, unless its special episodes like an ending or loss episode. And yeah, the complete ending and possibly a lack of opening with scenes into the ending (like D.N.Angels ending, hai?) Would be good at the end of episodes.

For the 'To Be Continued', at the end of a series, or as trailers and teasers, alright. But at the end of ever episode??? I dont agree, its a given that it'll be continued, unless our project ends, which we will have to put a notice up... The Pokemon 'To Be Continued' thing drives me crazy, not many anime do that, because, as I said, its a given. I think it can be put in, but please, not every episode... -.-;

perhaps the "to be continued" should only be for large cliffhangers, but like ama-chan said, not every episode. that would take away from the episode itself.

That's a parody of a real anime and this sorta thing could be done without animation knowledge all you have to do is to follow their timing and spacing. However, I won't deny that doing this is very tediousXDD;

PS: the person who made this aint almasilver, she's just an uploader and that video is made by a japanese from niconico so it'll be hard for us to contact him/her^^;
