At the very end of the last episode after the credits and everything, when Otanashi finds Kanade do you people think that was an afterlife or like a reincarnation type of thing, i have watched that anime 2 times and i love it but that question only popped in my head now. I would like to hear your thoughts

Yes it was probably reincarnation. A slightly strange reincarnation though because they both return to the same era they came from to live their lives again.

My immediate thought upon watching that last scene was 'thank god they finally got out of school'. They were in danger of becoming institutionalized.

I am curious. Was there an Angle Beats manga? If so did the anime's story follow it faithfully?

The general consensus was that it was some sort of reincarnation. Remember, Japanese beliefs about the afterlife are heavily influenced by Buddhism.

I think there might have been a manga, but there is also going to be a visual novel soon so maybe it will tell us more about the end and backstories of other characters

there's a manga that tells the story of how the SSS came about. the anime is an original story, and they're currently working on VNs that flesh out the characters and story more than the anime had the chance to do.

It took most people only 10 episodes to have their hearts broken with this series. Now a VN is going to bring out MORE on those characters? Prayers going out to everyone who gets it.

People be ready to thank me, It's a lot more tragic & awesome. There is a 2 minute odd preview/mini episode that was released, I personally thought it was so awesome. Let me know what you guys thought.

Honestly just rewatching it gave me lil goosebumps lol, im such a nerd.

I honestly think they should make a second season or short ova series to show the gang after they went on to heaven or become reincarnated. I mean that little epilogue shows Yuzuru as the Student Council President after everyone "graduated" so when does he "graduate" and reunite with Kanade?

i'd say they need to redo the whole thing so that there's more character development in the story, but they're already working on the VN

you're right. the short 13.5 episode titled "Another Epilogue" is a teaser on how it would be if the main character stayed behind as a
student council president. in the main series, he is reborn, along with the others.

Actually finished this one up a few days ago and I absolutely loved it! It's been a long time since an anime had me laughing my ass off one scene and then crying like a baby the next. Definitely wish the show was longer though so we could've gotten more back story from the other members of the SSS. Oh, and an extended ending to see how everyone was living their new lives!
