  • Another key visual masterpiece
    If you are looking for something to fill that void that Clannad left you in, then Angel beats should help with that. There's only 13 episodes so it won't be too long but, I personally felt they should have made more. If they felt that the story was fully done then there's no need to drag it on I was surprised on how much emotion they were able to pack into 13 episodes. I will give a belief ...

    Greetings from the Netherworld
    I was very much impressed with the strange way Angel Beats began and with the abstract way it ended. How that is I won't say but it was unique and fills one with the notion that things turn out okay. The way this story plays out at first I wasn't able to tell at first if it was the the Afterlife or a PC Game and I still look back and wonder if it was all a strange combination of both. But for me ...

    The story puts a twist on the average spiritual drama
    Despite the fast paced start and action, the story sets in a sorrowful tone, which gives it an edge above other types of anime, and despite the sorrowful tone, it's not boring. It always has something new for you to watch each episode, not the same sob story over and over again. Despite the sadness, it gives a sense of relief each episode, like each character is happier, that is until later.

  • I really liked this anime.
    Angel Beats is one of my favorites. There is a mixture of action, comedy, and a little bit of romance. However, this anime will also break your heart. It's so sad in some points and you can't contain the tears. So if you want to watch Angel Beats make sure you have a box of tissues beside you because you're going to need them. The ending will break your heart.

    It wasn't as good as people told me...
    My friends kept saying that Angel Beats was their favorite anime and that Angel Beats was the saddest anime ever. But personally when I watched it, I though I was watching a comedy. I felt bad for some of the characters, but it wasn't the saddest anime ever. Some of the side characters should have gotten more development. But the anime was still pretty good, so you should watch if you don't have ...

  • Funny, worthwhile, but occasionally non-sensical plot
    wish i had more time to write a detailed review.

    pros:
    - takes many occasions to poke fun at standard anime clichés (like the death sequences underground in the beginning, or various character behaviors)
    - genuinely funny
    - unique and interesting plot

    cons:
    - some of the dialog and explanations for what's going on makes no logical sense. if you get confused, i recommend reading the plot ...

    Better than expected.
    After reading a few reviews I decided to watch this, and I don't regret a single second of it! The characters were interesting, the plot was unique, and the music was awesome.

    My only complaints are that I couldn't keep the names straight (so many introduced so fast) and that it seemed to drag a bit in the middle. It didn't detract from the show, though, so those are minor things.

    I gave it ...

    Lacks Concept and a CLEAR Story
    This anime was really difficult to understand. I apologize and please explain to my faults that this anime was not very good. I do not understand the story very well and there are too many characters to start out with making it confusing to track who is who and their own unique personality.

    The anime features a fantasy world of the "afterlife" which was really confusing right off the bat. A few ...

    Amazing and beautiful anime
    This anime was beautiful and amazing. It gets a perfect note from me. At first I was skeptical about this anime, but all the doubts were gone as soon as the first episode ended.

    The music is good, the anime is funny, the characters are cool and it was the first anime that I ever watched that had such an original plot.

    SEASON 2 I WANT YOU!
