  • 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, but was shortened to only 13 episodes before production. The producer of Angel Beats even commented in an interview saying that 13 episodes was not enough time to tell the whole story of ...

  • A Must Watch, For Sure
    You won't find any other anime that is immensely emotionally sad yet you feel happy at the same time for some reasons. 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 gave me shivers and a unique type of sadness that makes me ...

    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.

  • Absolutely Fantastic
    I've watched a lot of anime that some would consider to be exceptional, and there is no doubt that Angel Beats deserves to be placed amongst them. Every character is very well made, the emotions and feelings they convey through their actions are very "real". The animation itself is quite good, nothing seems out of place or sub par, so props to whomever did that. This anime wraps up in 13 episodes, ...

  • A heartwarming story of friendship.
    I have watched this anime multiple times. It's a beautiful story of friendship and how the daily school life can be exciting if you make an effort for it. I would recommend this anime to anyone. It has something for everyone to enjoy. You would have to be heartless to not enjoy this anime.

  • Few anime that could make me want to cry
    So I don't want to make any spoiler. This anime is one of the best out there in terms of drama, comedy, and story values.

    Highly recommended to watch! Highly recommended to buy as part of a personal video library collection (if you have one). Buy 2 copies of the series; one is to be preserved as a sealed copy and the other copy to "spread the word" LOL

    And another thing... this has a great ...
