This was probably the funniest episode in the entire series. It wasn't the "Everything will be revealed and all questions will be answered" epilogue that I was hoping for, but even so, it was so worth the wait. I really hope that there will be something in the future that will explain the series finale though.

Note: the current release is a low video quality one by Mazui, but they said that they plan to eventually have a 720P version available. Even so, I feel that the quality of the current release is bearable.

I noticed at the very end of the episode it said, "Bad End" So I wonder if they're making another special for a "Good End"

Just finished watching "Another Epilogue"
Spoiler :

as far as this episode goes...
Spoiler :
it seems to conflict with what you see at the end of the credits for episode 13???

Spoiler :
I always thought it was an isolated incident that coulda happened anytime during the series, or something like that.

Don't know if want...

Spoiler :
I wonder if Otanashi decided to stay in limbo all that time in order to wait for Kanade to live her life and eventually die. Maybe he knew that even with his heart, she could only live for a short period of time. And when Kanade died, she knew that Otanashi was waiting for her, so even though she could now accept her death, she walked through limbo in search of him. If that's true, then the epilogue at the end of 13 may actually be 2-3 years after "Another Epilogue".

This is the only explanation that I could think of. The girl at the end of "Another Epilogue" did say that he was waiting for someone. Who else would he wait for since everyone else went to heaven?

Spoiler :
that's true, but with the belief of reincarnation, that would mean if Kanade was reborn, it'd be a whole lot more than 2-3 years and I'd think all of them would have been reborn as well, so all of them would still have the possibility of passing through limbo as well... which in a way would be cool for a sequel, but then it would lose it's initial appeal, plus they'd have no reason to fight the system, at least from a viewer point of view :uhoh:

I don't think that there will be a sequel, but there may be more OVA's. The creator of the show said that he had so many backstories for Angel Beats that he couldn't fit them all into the anime. There may be some OVAs that explain how Yuripe died, TK's past, and more about the guy that turned himself into a NPC and created that program in the final episode.

I love the dub for this. Otanashi's lines are a little more "spicy" than I had expected, and the lip flaps for a lot of the characters don't match up perfectly, but the acting is perfect. I'm definitely gonna buy the blu-rays for this since it comes out on my birthday (July 26th)

Oh and, apple put the first episode for free on itunes.
