** In a slightly happier note, it seems that the movie version of Zeta Gundam is the one that became canon, in which Kamille manages to not get brain-fried. Lending to this is the fact that even in the recent announcement for Gundam NT, it shows the previous main-line Gundam series, but ZZ is nowhere to be found...

** Fortunately, this is ''not'' the case in the manga version; while still hardly completely happy, it certainly wasn't as unbearably bleak as the anime. Most notably, the villain had the good graces to stay ''dead'', and all of the main cast members survived (although Rosette still died much younger than she deserved, leaving Chrono to live on without her. [[BittersweetEnding So like I said: not completely happy.]])

** ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'', another manga by [[MohiroKitoh the same author]] is not, by any mean, happier either. Starting as a game, the children soon realize that everything is more serious than it seems when the adult who introduced them to said game disappears and the first child who had piloted ''dies''. The anime, however, manages to pull a BittersweetEnding of sorts off.

** ''Anime/DevilmanCrybaby'' has the same ending, except with the humanity's confirmed extinction, Satan becoming heartbroken upon realizing Akira is dead, and God wiping out the earth entirely in the very end.

There is a HopeSpot in the very last show of the series that shows Earth remade, but things go FromBadToWorse in the sequel series.

** Quite a few of the manga arcs have had downer endings too. The UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper arc ends with Madam Red dying. The {{Circus|OfFear}} arc has all the first tier members die except Snake. And let's not forget all the children Ciel had burned alive when he set [[StalkerWithACrush Baron]] [[{{Shotacon}} Kelvin]]'s estate on fire, although his reasoning was that the children would never be themselves and remain in such a [[EmptyShell traumatized]] state that killing them was probably the best option.

* The ''Literature/BattleRoyale'' manga, unlike the original book, ends on a rather depressing note. [[spoiler:While Shuya and Noriko both survive the Program and escape the Greater East Asian Republic to America, the short epilogue consists of Shuya's narration implying that their relationship eventually became strained as a result of their traumatic memories of the Program. To add insult to injury, he chides himself for never having told her that he loved her]].

Shuya and Noriko both are the only ones to survive the Program game and escape the Greater East Asian Republic flee to America, the short epilogue consists memories of Shuya's narration implying the game haunting them for years to come. And Shuya implies that their relationship eventually became strained as a result because of their traumatic those memories of the Program. To add insult to injury, he chides himself for and him never having told her that he loved her]].actually saying "I love you" to her. Meanwhile, the horrendous game has not stopped, so another class will be chosen to participate in six months.



* In ''Manga/BattleRoyale'' almost every named character dies. Though [[spoiler:the protagonists]] survive they're upset about the deaths of their classmates.
** Despite the large number of deaths among named characters only one unnamed Government {{mook|s}} is killed, though the rest are injured. As the remaining mooks are put in a raft and dropped into the sea it's unknown if they survive.

** On a more personal note in ''Side:Hope'', Munakata has lost everything, including Chisa and Juzo (even more so with the former, who is lobotimized by the aforementioned video prior to the Tragedy), and blames himself for his actions during the Final Killing Game, stepping down his position as a Future Foundation head and setting off to WalkTheEarth as a result.
