  • Amazing! Angel Beats!
    I loved this anime! From the plot, to the characters, settings, and all the way to the music! I am even thing of re-watching this I loved this so much! Honestly should watch this anime. Don't even think just watch! I do feel that they could have made this into 25 episodes, and finished it off a little better.

  • Rushed, but with a superior ending
    Overall, Angel Beats! has a wonderful plot concept. Unfortunately, it was cut short and, as a result, rushed. This did not allow for as much character development.

    However, despite this, the writers were able to conclude the anime with a stunningly beautiful ending. I enjoyed the ending of this anime more than any other that I have watched so far. I highly recommend this show.

    *I tried ...

  • A mix of almost every genre you could think of
    My full review is kind of long, so here's the link: http://selenasmangaanimecircle.blogspot.com/2013/12/s-macs-anime-review-angel-beats.html

    TL;DR I appreciate what this anime did in only 13 episodes. Story was complete, there is a large cast of quirky characters (though the main trio is a bit lackluster), art and animation are average, music is FANTASTIC and fairly well paced and executed. ...

  • Pretty good show, the feels
    Angel beats was an amazing show, although short. The characters were pretty well developed, and I liked their relationships the show set up. I liked the concept of the show, but was confusing at some times. I think Angel Beats was a bit short though, I think the ending turned out nicely, yet sadly. Overall, a good show though!

    yeah it's fine but...
    No need to pretend this isn't a popular one, and even though i admit to being a brat for the fun of it, i honestly think this series lacks true depth. Let me explain.
    The plot is okay at first and it builds rather nicely, like say you and a sibling were building a lego house. Well towards the latter half of the show your siblings keeps adding these obscene pieces and soon your becomes museum and ...

    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 ...
