  • A Must Watch Masterpiece of an Anime!
    This anime blew my mind it with its quality. The animations were smooth, the story was great, the characters were like-able and could be sympathized with. This series also had those FEELS MAN! They knew how to move you in ways you never thought you could be moved, they could make you cry no matter how hard you tried to hold it in. But it had its comedic moments along with it, the first episode has ...

    One of the Best animes ever made
    I don't think there is any other anime that comes close to giving you what Angel Beats! can offer in only 1 season.

    You will laugh and cry in the same episode, then cry some more, all while falling in love with all the characters.

    It has almost every cliche in anime, but it works out for the most comedic times, as well as making it's own originality. The fight scenes are also amazing and ...

    Angel Beats - Movin' On
    Angel Beats is an anime that will quite likely confuse you. It will almost assuredly make you question what is going on. And it will certainly surprise you.



    Angel Beats opens with you being introduced to a world that is little more than a High School where students wage war against a being they call 'Angel', and try to thwart God. The premise sounds silly, and the first episodes seem very ...

  • One of those series you must see!!!
    This is my first review on the site, so bare with me as I try to get my bearings. This being said I have to state that this was one of those animes that I tried to steer clear of for some reason. Then I watched the first episode after a friend kept going on and on about it. (Mainly I wanted them to shut their mouth about it finally) From almost the first moment of this series I was invested. I ...

  • Definitely worth watching!!
    I can't believe this anime told such a bizarre, yet complex and cool story in just 12 episodes. The amount that I felt for the characters in such a short time is telling of how good the storytelling is. Definitely worth your time to watch the entire thing!! Things pick up by the 2/3rd episode. That's when the show really got my attention...that, and the great use of slo-mo. hehe

  • Simply outstanding!!
    I remember just browsing around for a new anime to watch. Found this read the description and I was like "meh worth a shot". I just finished watching the last few episodes at work. It was so hard to try not to cry here in the office (I'm a guy and this just gives you knots in your throat). Just simply an outstanding anime! Very well written! Definitely glad that I gave a shot! You should too if ...

    Manly Tears Were Shed
    Besides being a real tear-jerking series, Angel Beats brilliantly mixes elements of action, comedy, drama, and even romance when they are needed. The musical score was simply beautiful, I even tear up listening to the soundtrack. The fact that it's only 13 episodes itself is sad, you don't get the change to learn about the backstory for all the characters, but who knows, we might finally learn ...

    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.
