While most anime gives these characters a fitting ending, it’s safe to say that there are a few that have gotten off too easily.
There are tons of great villains in the anime universe, some of whom are even more popular than the heroes who defeat them. Other villains are well written, but in the eyes of most fans they are completely irredeemable for their actions. These villains are usually cool beyond belief and don’t care what life they affect and don’t affect.
While most anime gives these characters a fitting ending, it’s safe to say that there are a few that have gotten off too easily. Some have even been offered a chance at redemption or have been totally forgiven.
