"I build these muscles solely to review animes!!!"
That had become my new catch phrase!
What? You say I got this muscles from fapping? Naawww.....

Angel Beats: Stairway to Heaven was supposedly be the SPECIAL episode for the series but there's nothing really special about it. Sure it's funny but it's like another ordinary day for the SSS day. Nothing new, just another plot by the evil Yurippe to find God. However this is in fact as interesting as finding Waldo and Carmen Santiago.

With all the main characters on high tension, I actually pity the voice actors having to scream their way through the whole episode (I hope read more

DVDs and BRDs are the lifeblood of the anime industry, and there's many a hook that's used to make us part with our hard earned cash. One of these methods is the offer the so-called "unaired episode", which is essentially nothing more than a single episode OVA which can act as an addendum to the main story, provide closure to certain plot threads, allow for a new perspective on certain characters, or simply give the viewer something fun to watch.

This little addition to Angel Beats went with the latter method, but is it really playing to the strengths of the series by doing this?

To begin with... It's just an Angel Beats! OVA, so its simply an alteration of parts of the original.
This really has no real meaning to the actual series or is any step closer to their goal.
It's much like a Lucky Star moment that's just for fun.
This is just brief as it is one episode.
The music is still the same as it was before, except the ending was played... backwards (just the video was)

I personally enjoyed it because it really made me laugh and it was something different from the original series, as I also love the character design from Angel Beats!.

Special episode of Angel Beats! Although this isn't part of the main story, it's still worth the watch.

Story: Interesting enough story and plot, As usual, the twists are really funny and it makes you want to watch this again and again.

Art: As usual, the art was done very well and there isn't much to complain about.

Sound: Sounds are put in appropriate moments that suit the situation, making the show even better. Nothing much to say about the opening and ending as its the same as the main story.

Character: Same characters with really interesting funny sides to them. Nothing much to comment about.

Enjoyment: This episode in read more
