    Best Anime I've Ever Seen (and I've seen quite a lot)
    It has battles, though they're not very long, and struggles against God. Lessons that'll stick in your mind and surprises at every moment. I'm not one to cry when I see sad things or lose someone important or watch something sad (while my mother and sister are bawling), but as I watched the last episode I started crying and sobbing. This is the best anime I've ever seen. Enough said.

  • Just as good the second time
    I sendom watch an anime twice because I feel there are just many to view. This one I had to watch again. It is such a novel concept. It is a great combination and can move from strong comedic aspects to complete seriousness. The dubbed version has some excellent voice actors (although the voice of Yui was grating).
    You learn the backstories of each of these characters and grow to love them, even ...

    Right in the feels but you'll want more
    This is a smartly written story with good animation and good English voice acting that gave me a true gut busting laugh then brings you the other way emotionally just as easily, which is the hallmark of good story telling. A shame it is limited to only 13 episodes, but each episode is a must watch.

    If Only There Was More Time
    "If only there was more time."

    This line in the final episode of Angel Beats! is exactly what makes the show fall short of a masterpiece. Originally Angel Beats! was planned as a 20+ episode anime, but was shortened to only 13 episodes before production began. The producer of Angel Beats even commented in an interview saying that 13 episodes was not enough time to tell the whole ...

    This Anime Left a Hole in My Heart
    Nicotinehearts™
    Personal Score: 87%

    You won't find any other anime that is immensely emotionally saddening yet you feel happy at the same time for some reason. It took me a while to finally find the time to watch this anime, and I can say for a fact that Angel Beats did not disappoint. Thinking back to all the moments previous anime had gave me feels, Angel Beats has definitely ...

    the best, but be careful
    This anime is generally one of the easiest anime's to get hooked on. though it is short, it is one of the most emotional and descriptive anime's I've ever seen. It will make you laugh and cry (especially at the end) and it was voted numerous times for the best anime and one of the saddest anime's in history. If you get the feels after watching a good anime, be wary of this one. It is also ...

    Emotional, impacting, and makes little to no sense in substance
    Truly I would give this a 4.5, but there is no option for that. Angel beats has beautiful animation, music, and voice acting, but the story pacing wasn't executed that well. Combining humor and drama might be too much of a contrast. For me, the little arcs were interesting, but could be more in depth. There were a lot of ideas presented, but little elaboration. We did not know anything about ...

    A story about fighting against life's unfairness
    Very interesting story about a young man who dies and finds himself in a purgatory-like world. There, the dead are supposed to find peace and acceptance of their lives even if they died tragically too young and too unfairly. But a certain group of students is angry with God and refuses to go along with the program, and are punished repeatedly by a guardian angel. At times it is a bit difficult ...

    Watch the ending alone if you don't want to let anyone see you cry.
    The story was awesome along with the entire anime. I really like the openings and ending, of course I cried at the end, I'm a girl so of course I'm gonna cry. It's best to watch the ending alone otherwise people are gonna look at you as if your crazy... The ending was really bittersweet.Anyways, I liked the anime overall.

  • Great Emotional Anime
    This anime is amazing. The story develops from an anime of just mindless fighting into something more. It really pulls at your emotions and makes you feel really connected to the characters and what happens to them. All in all this is on of the top anime I have seen, because it was able to pull me in emotionally which not many anime can do.
