Closing Credits which, among other thanks, thank the viewer for watching/reading/playing. Can address the viewer directly in second person ("Thanks to... YOU"), or refer to them in third person ("Thanks to all our viewers/everyone who read my comic/etc.") Sometimes also the last element on Special Thanks.

For when viewers are thanked specifically for financial support, see Viewers Like You.

Examples of Thanking the Viewer include:

Anime and Manga

  • One of the last Azumanga Daioh strips had the girls going to Yukari and thanking her for being their teacher. However, the actually "Thank You" panel showed the girls facing toward the reader, subtly thanking them as well.
  • The very final shot in Puella Magi Madoka Magica is this "Thank you for watching" artwork.
  • In episode 167 of Gintama, Gintoki becomes nostalgic about 8-bit video games and mentions how touched he was when he saw the words "you" in the credits at the end of the game.
  • Battle Programmer Shirase had an unusual variant. The head director apologized for the show having to end, specifically addressing: "To those who enjoyed the show on TV and to those outside the broadcast area who took special measures to watch the show on their PC monitors and to everybody who watched it subtitled overseas without permission."
