Synopsis

Upon his death, Yuzuru Otonashi awakens into an afterlife high school where a group of student rebels, lead by Yuri Nakamura, take arms against a dispassionate adversary with supernatural powers whom they call Angel. Calling themselves Shinda Sekai Sensen (a.k.a. Afterlife Battlefront), they're in open rebellion against God for their crappy, unfulfilled and cruelly unfair lives (and against a projected reincarnated future as meager sea life, presumably barnacles or water fleas). Though no one can die since everyone's already dead, killings are nonetheless very painful experiences, with complete recovery to follow. The greatest fear in their struggle to maintain their humanity is obliteration (Angel's goal for them), from which there is no return.

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! The anime that is praised by many and criticized by few. Sadly I was forced to go stand in the cold critic corner. In all honesty, I was excited to watch this anime after all the suggestions from people and raving reviews. The art looked amazing and I heard the music was incredible. What is a good anime in my book? An anime that effects my grades negatively, because just...one...more...episode! Angel Beats however never gripped me. It made me say: "Ok that's enough for today, I have a ton of homework anyway..." My experience can be best summed up in a quote from 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.
