Synopsis

Otonashi awakens only to learn he is dead. A rifle-toting girl named Yuri explains that they are in the afterlife, and Otonashi realizes the only thing he can remember about himself is his name. Yuri tells him that she leads the Shinda Sekai Sensen (Afterlife Battlefront) and wages war against a girl named Tenshi. Unable to believe Yuri's claims that Tenshi is evil, Otonashi attempts to speak with her, but the encounter doesn't go as he intended.

Otonashi decides to join the SSS and battle Tenshi, but he finds himself oddly drawn to her. While trying to regain his memories and understand Tenshi, he gradually unravels the mysteries of the afterlife.

Angel Beats! isn't for everyone. As with many anime that focus on hitting the viewer in the feels, much of the impact is lost if you don't feel for the characters. Angel Beats is one of the more specific ones I've seen. The characters in Angel Beats all had some aspect of their life that was horrible and each one used that as their main tool for getting the viewer to relate to the character, so if the viewer had a similar experience to one of the characters, its really easy to start liking them, while its much harder if you can't relate at all. read more

Angel Beats follows the story of one Otonashi, an amnesiac that suddenly pops up in what can only be called Purgatory. He quickly meets two of the residents of this strange world: Yuri and Angel, whom are locked in a never-ending battle of sorts. Yuri leads a group of humans like Otonashi in "rebelling" against the system, while Angel seems to be an agent of the system keeping them in line.

Angel Beats is another short anime coming in at only 13 episodes. As a result, the pacing is pretty good most of the time. The plot is presented in a fine manner. I do wish read more

The main protagonist in both series are playful tsunderes. Both are very comedic, both take place in a high school setting. Both plots begin playful then quickly evolve into a heartwarming tale.
