This is true of many anime.
Rayearth certainly has a darker ending than you would have expected given the sugary nature of the start.
Fushigi Yugi is very funny in the first few eps, but by the end of Season 1, you can't believe it's the same show.
I'll be an Angel is the last show you'd EVER think would get serious by the end... and yet, I was floored by the power of the last episodes.
Just throwing thoughts out...
