    A Wild-Card of the Anime World
    This anime would be a shuffled deck of genres for me, and it was a perfectly shuffled one at that. It has basically everything that you can find in an anime: romance, comedy, action, slice of life, guns, and don't forget school uniforms. And they're all put together in a manner that makes them fit well together. Of course, this series isn't all fun and games, it has its sad times that will leave ...

    The Nether World is not so bad
    When I came across Angel Beats recently I must say I was indeed wondering where it had been all this time I was searching for bang on good anime. Angel Beats didn't seem like it at first but this story had all the wise crack fun of a grand Romance Anime with the dark concept thoughts of Death Note. I must say despite all that it all played out with a rather optimistically with tone even when it ...

  • 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 ...

    A strange world in the way of anime
    I first happened across Angel Beats years ago when my cable provider still gave me the Anime Network on demand. And then I found it here on Crunchy and had to see it all over again for the first time in ages. This anime like the Original 2007 version of Rozen Maiden (the good version) was a complete way out in left field concept in anime. And this why I originally got into anime back in 98 for the ...

    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 ...
