Hilo everybody! A few days ago I think died. Now I’m just a ghost somehow typing on my keyboard.
The reason why?
I’d cried too much that I have no water in me.
2010. For some of you, 2010, could have been the year you started liking anime/magna or the year you kept liking it. For others,including me, it was the year we never discovered anime.
It took me 4 years. 4 FUCKIN YEARS to discover this amazing anime, Angel Beats!. I am a disappointment. 😦 But I just go on my very own slow, slowwww pace.
For those of you who don’t know Angel Beats! is an 13 episode(14 including the OVA or 15 including episode 13.5) anime. I finish those 13 episodes in 2 days, which is a record for me. Watching the first season of Sword Art Online took me like a month. Heh, I procrastinate.
Anyways, here’s the synopsis:
The story of the Angel Beats! anime series follows the main protagonist Otonashi, a boy who lost his memories of his life after dying. Upon awakening in the afterlife, he meets a girl named Yuri who invites him to join the Shinda Sekai Sensen (SSS) (死んだ世界戦線, lit. Afterlife Battle Front), an organization she leads which fights against God for the cruel fates the SSS members experienced in life. Their only enemy in the world is the school’s Student Council President popularly known as “Angel”, a being with supernatural powers who appears to be in charge of keeping the status quo and the fight against the SSS.
If you go to the Angel Beats! wiki then you might wonder why this looked exactly the same as the Plot Overview on that website. It’s not like I copied and paste or anything like that! Fine…I did but I always feel lazy on summaries/synopsis.
Angel Beats! is everything that I love. Sad and has a good plot line. Unlike many books, anime/manga, TV shows etc. it doesn’t have many plot holes. This show answers all questions in our head but that one question. The question about Otonashi and Angel(Tenshi in the subbed, the one I watched or Kanade) and how did she get there first. I won’t go into much of that for those of you who haven’t watched it yet. Also, it’s the music! I love the music. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE! It’s beautiful and fits the plot so perfectly. Here’s the opening(MAY HAVE SOME SPOILERS):
Also, the one thing that I always think that everything should have. Humor. I love the funny scenes, the background music and how the characters expressed their feelings through face expressions and words. Here’s an example(don’t worry for spoilers, I watched it a lot but it doesn’t have much of the story in it):
My favorite scene!
There isn’t anything perfect in the world. This anime could have been one of the best and closest to perfection I ever seen. The reason it other characters back story and former past. The rest of the Battlefront, like TK, Shiina,Matsushita 5, etc. I understand they had a budget limit and that’s why there was only a certain amount of episodes but even the manga didn’t show anything. Well, that’s what the wiki says… It would have been nice to know how they got there and what their regret was. I’m okay with using more tissues!
Highly recommend watching Angel Beats! or maybe even watching again! Thanks for reading!
