Good times.
Spoiler :
I think I got a lump in my throat for Yuri's departure as well as Kanade's. The graduation ceremony was awesome. Other than that, a sortof meh forced ending, but was to be expected. The scene after the credits though, FUCK YEAH. I wanna know what happened to Hinata and Yui. And TK and Shina. DON'T STOP DANCING

I actually ended up REALLY liking this series.

Spoiler :
How they were all just people who never achieved as children, and this place was a haven for them to fulfill their lives before moving on... and there were quite a few "HOLY SHIT" moments that made it worth it, like him dying RIGHT when they were about to be saved... and Yuri's siblings actually getting killed.


I really do wish this show had been longer, like 26 episodes, there is SOOOOO much character development left undone that really could have made this great, and there are too many developments that are just SO sudden that they don't have the impact they could have otherwise... but I still DID rather love this show ;__;

For sure.

Spoiler :
Some characters they developed to the point of being really likable and interesting, then didn't do anything with them, like TK and Shiina. I mean, TK was pretty mysterious, some random foreigner that happened to end up there with them. WANT BACKSTORY. Definitely should have been 26 eps. The pacing might have worked very well, plus there would be time to work in more comedic moments.


But I can't complain. Overall the show was pretty enjoyable.

I arrived a little late to the AB party, but since it came more highly reccomended than God, I decided to check it out [or perhaps it was my friend that tied me to a chair and forced me to watch it].

Gotta say, 6 episodes in, and this is really on its way to my top 10 list. :D

I'm glad that the Blu-ray includes a creditless opening that still has the red pulse/ flatline. I plan on making 2 Angel Beats AMVs fairly soon.

I actually meant to ask this months ago. Are people in Japan really OK with naming their daughters "Yuri"? I'm not prejudice against yuri.......it just seems like a awkward name. I mean....what if someone in America flat-out named their daughter "Lesbian"? When the series first came out, you couldn't even google "yuri angel beats" without getting yuri of Yuri and Kandae (Angel at the time).

i thought that Yuri and Yaoi were american designated things, bastardized by some japanese term. :uhoh:

REally, Kionon is the best person to ask that to.

Plus, it might be like our American Mary Marie and Merry. Just assuming though.

Spoiler :
So... In the ending... Kanade and Otonoshi were reincarnated and Kanade's humming of those lyrics reminded Otonshi of them in the past? Does this possibly mean that the band members were reincarnated back as well and had a hit song? :D I can hope, can't I?

WHY WAS THERE NO TK BACKSTORY. YOU BASTARDS. I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT TK.

Same with ninja lady. She probably had a very interesting backstory. :lol:
