    Angel Beats Review - Both Sad and Heart Warming.
    I just finished watching Angel Beats. Angel Beats was truly an amazing anime incorporating everything I would ever ask of an anime; It had comedy, action, shounen, romance and and an overall list of characters which keep you coming back for more of their unique personalities and shenanigans.
    Angel Beats was both sad and heart worming, the ending was fantastic as there weren't any cliff hangars ...

  • on the floor thinking
    i don't quite know what to say about this anime. it is a lot of things; a little serious a little goofy a little gritty a little absurd at times but dear god it made me cry. this anime literally left me sitting on the floor trying to understand anything.

    to be honest the core is relatively mediocre the pacing leaves a lot to be desired and themes change abruptly often before or just as you ...

  • Should be on anyones list
    An amazing integration of comedy, action and drama with that small spark of romance. Couldn't of asked for this anime to end any better then it did. I can say most animes dont get to my comedic side as often as they should but this one hit the spot.

  • Almost grabbed my heart and made me cry.
    Angel Beats, is just beautiful. The premise is interesting, and they take advantage of the characters living in the afterlife to the fullest. There are many feels to behold as we learn about our characters and see their interactions, and the story just gets better with every episode. However, in the end the amount of episodes does hinder some emotions that would well up tears in my eyes. No ...

  • No other anime moved my heart as deeply as this
    I should begin with a fact: art works with what's already present in your heart. If it strikes a chord within you, it may draw out laughter, joy, sorrow, pain, tears, love, or any manner of emotion, or none at all. For the most part, the experience of art and stories is deeply personalized. So this review is not an objective one, based on quality of art and story; it's just a review of a man whose ...

  • For the love of an Angel....who is no angel!
    Few have captured my heart like Angel Beats. The music is so utterly soul-piercing (I have every soundtrack). The plot follows a boy who 'wakes up' in a world he doesn't know with bullets whizzing by his head ^_~ He's 'indicted' to a rebel group within this world, whose name constantly changes! They have one enemy.
    Angel.
    This anime explores emotion in a depth that is rarely done and is a ...

  • Solidly a three start show, but FINISHED STRONG
    The first 8 or so episodes make you think this is some kind of poorly done Haruhi clone, but by the time you get to the last few episodes you will just CARE SO MUCH YOU CAN'T STOP WATCHING.

    Generally, I don't think this is worth your time if you are on a short schedule, but if you have a few extra hours lying around you could find worse things to do with your time.

  • One of the Top 10!!!
    Great anime. That's all there is to it. Expect to cry when you hear a few background stories because they really do touch the heart. Many say that they should have made this anime with double the number of episodes but I think 13 episodes was a great choice. It did not have any "draggy" moments and it was just a greatly put together anime. I recommend this to anyone because it had action, romance, ...

  • A Fantastic Tear-Jerking Anime
    This is one of my top 15 anime of all time. From start to finish this series is heart-wrenching, hilarious, and thought-provoking. It has a tremendous cast of characters, supported by a truly moving central story. The animation is top-notch, and the soundtrack is perfect. The only criticism I have for this anime is that it was just too short, and needed a few more episodes to fully tell its ...

    A different place a different concept
    Boy wakes up in a strange place he's never been before and finds out he's dead! So morbid its almost funny I suppose. But there's actually more to than that. and this is why Angel Beats took my curiosity. A high school drama anime about the afterlife sounds corny I know but every time I thought I understood what was going on I found myself struck with some very good writing on the part of the ...
