  • Good Show, Rushed Ending
    This was a good show. Memorable characters and abundant humor, but darker and thought-provoking tones surfacing throughout.

    The Good:
    Well defined, interesting characters
    Interesting story
    Truly emotional moments

    The Bad:
    Some of the more interesting characters don't get backstories (T.K. whyyyyy T_T)
    Rushed ending
    Some flaws in logic, but those don't really detract from the story. ...

  • One of the funniest and saddest anime ever.
    This is one of my favorite anime I've ever watched. It ranges from rolling on ground laughing so hard to choking on your own tears. Even though this anime did not have not have much character development, it covered for that for having such a deep, emotional, funny plot. If I too recommend an anime, it'd be Angel beats, kokoro connect, or sword art online.

  • Unexpectedly amazing show
    I can't handle this one. Too deep and emotional. Great romance, great ending; was not expecting it to affect me in an emotional way, but damn those characters, that ending, really makes your heart hurt.

    Ten out-of ten would not watch again (just can't handle it man)

  • Review of Angel Beats!
    Plot
    It is a good anime, with both laughing and crying moments(especially in Episode 3 and Episode 10-13). But it is a shame that the number of episodes is too scarce and the plot is too loosely-binded.
    Character Design
    A wide-range of cast, all with difference characteristics and aspects. Unfortunately, the cast is way too large and the scarce number of episodes is unable to let we ...

  • Another masterpiece from Key!
    As my title says, this is really a masterpiece from Key. Angel Beats! is really emotive anime. It counts with elements that makes it unforgettable, such as sad but happy moments, some dramatic events and a lot, tons of humor, that will make this anime to remain in your heart forever. Like Little Busters! and Clannad, this is one of my favorites. Yes, it is really short story, but I think it makes ...

  • Emotionally dazzled.
    Angel Beats! succeeds at everything you could ask for. It's humor, emotion, drama, action, fantasy/supernatural tone, and so on. The characters had such moving and interesting stories that leave an emotional scar on you. Watching this in one go wouldn't be of bother and you'd thank me. The ending leaves you a bit confused and you might consider it to be a plot hole but trust me, open your mind ...

  • Amazing! Angel Beats!
    I loved this anime! From the plot, to the characters, settings, and all the way to the music! I am even thing of re-watching this I loved this so much! Honestly should watch this anime. Don't even think just watch! I do feel that they could have made this into 25 episodes, and finished it off a little better.

  • Rushed, but with a superior ending
    Overall, Angel Beats! has a wonderful plot concept. Unfortunately, it was cut short and, as a result, rushed. This did not allow for as much character development.

    However, despite this, the writers were able to conclude the anime with a stunningly beautiful ending. I enjoyed the ending of this anime more than any other that I have watched so far. I highly recommend this show.

    *I tried ...

  • A mix of almost every genre you could think of
    My full review is kind of long, so here's the link: http://selenasmangaanimecircle.blogspot.com/2013/12/s-macs-anime-review-angel-beats.html

    TL;DR I appreciate what this anime did in only 13 episodes. Story was complete, there is a large cast of quirky characters (though the main trio is a bit lackluster), art and animation are average, music is FANTASTIC and fairly well paced and executed. ...

  • Pretty good show, the feels
    Angel beats was an amazing show, although short. The characters were pretty well developed, and I liked their relationships the show set up. I liked the concept of the show, but was confusing at some times. I think Angel Beats was a bit short though, I think the ending turned out nicely, yet sadly. Overall, a good show though!
