Last night after watching an episode of Fafner before they were about to embark on an epic battle. I thought of the question "Have the bad guys ever actually win?" I suppose by win I mean defeat/kill the hero and then continues his conquest of world domination or wherever his asperations sit. Also once our hero is defeated its over the series ends with the antagonists getting their way. I ran through a mental list of animes I've seen and I could not think of one. In the end the bad guy is stopped (sometimes the hero is killed in the process) but so is the villian. Has anyone seen ANY animes where the villian is the victor and the hero dies or walks away in defeat because I havent.
