I kinda lose 2 minutes or so of my life. I don't see the point of making this OVA, i didn't like. Only the thing i liked was when Otonashi talked about Yue, Yurippe and that other pink-haired girl from the band while showing the places where they used to be, like the footbal camp and Yurippe's office. <3

for 2min40 secs long- i loved it. very dramatic and heavy- esp the line that hes waiting for someone

its sad, because kaede and his friends will never be able to come back to the world

the "next stage" line fits well, as it alludes to either a 2nd season, or simply that this OVA's world (where otonashi is president) IS the next stage, thus concluding the series.

i personally saw this series potential for epicness if it was a full 24/26 eps. it was a letdown, but it was a solid ride

I think

"he's waiting for someone"


Means, he's waiting his replacement, someone who's capable of helping others like he did.

Yup, that must be it, when he did find someone, (Presumably the blonde dude), he'll leave for Kanade.

If I'm right, then we'll have a season 2 of Angel Beats with Otonashi as the angel and as the hated one.

Full Metal Alchemist meets Angel Beats! That blond kid really looked like Edward...

Otonashi looked very serious in what he's doing in this Epilogue. Whatever happened afterwards is...a work in progress

i think that Otonashi didn't dissapear because at the last ep, it just shows him shouting Kanade..
if you zoom on the last scene, there was some ball of light goes up from there
and i think that was Kanade's soul..
and you will see that theres a person still on the stairs...
even it just like a black dot, you can see that clearly and i think that was Otonashi
maybe this is wishful thinking, but there will be 'Next Stage'

I liked the epilogue. Ova should have been like this.

Hopefully the Next Stage is a sign for a continuation, coz the way I see it, this could well be the TRUE Epilogue, since Otonashi-san has no regrets, hence he can't graduate, but everyone did, +Kanade(T_T), so he's probably waiting for her :D

Alternate ending, as befits an anime in disguise as a VN rather than the other way around. Likewise, the (completely redundant) Stairway to Heaven OVA ended with the words "Bad Ending".

One thing though: In the translation of Angel Beats episode 13 I watched there was no disambiguous statement about Kanade having died at all. As I understood it, she was "not supposed to be there", but could very well be doing a Fuuko/Ayu trick and have wandered errounously into the World After during a coma following her heart transplant. Thus, she is the only one in the cast being able to reappear in the real world as herself (she just wakes up), while everyone else are DEAD (face it, people) and need to reincarnate in a body different to their previous one to re-enter the world. The scene concluding episode 13 ends just a fraction of a second before Otonashi's hand reaches Kanade, making it possible that it would just pass through her body if we were able to continue watching.

And to everyone hoping for a second season: This is a KEY story, the ending is supposed to be sad and leave you wanting more. This is not Code Geass. This OVA alludes as much to a second season of Angel Beats as the Kyuo Chapter alluded to a third season of Clannad.

Another link everybody should look at if there are interested in the second season is this:
http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://otakuartist.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/angel-beats-second-season-confirmed/

EDIT: Nevermind, the conformation was a joke made by some random idiot on the internet. It has also been conformed that there won't be a second season.


So far i haven't seen a confirmation that there will be no second season ... and i put that interview on site not as confirmation but as a guess for second season... and if there will be a second season it would most definitely have a new cast because the old one passed on ... and only one who could still be there would be Otonashi but he to according to Maeda Jun passed on ... so that leaves us with this Another Epilogue character which most possibly would be the main Protagonist.

I really hope there will be a second season, after this episode i really belive that they will make a great second season where Yuzuru stays and new people will come and he tries to help them, maybe there will come a threat or something, becouse since it is a roumor about a second season, then i really hope it will come a second season, loved Angel Beats! :D

I think it's more of a case of Otonashi staying behind to guide others for as long as he sees necessary. After all, did he not suggest that exact thing to Kanade? That's not to say he'll stay there forever, his portrait did disappear in the credits and Maeda Jun said he moved on. Like others suggested, I'd say he's waiting for a successor, Kanade moved on, chances are next to zero of her returning (like the guy with the computers for the NPCs explained about the love of the guy who invented Angel Player).

But also I think the ending of episode 13 was either an imagining of life together between the two just like Yui had, or it happens after this OVA. When Otonashi says he'll wait forever for the blonde guy to approach him, I think that means he has business with him, not that he's going to sit there forever.

Wow. That was...
I really don't know what to say. I'm not sure if I liked it or hated it. I'm still processing it.
Wow...

wow just watched it
granted it was a very short 2mins OVA but damn this tells us a whole lot of possibilities
but anyways, the otonashi in this episode obviously is not the same as we all know
he really nailed this one and its obvious they made this one to make people want for more just like what im feelin right now
i know its not even possible right now, heck this is not even a wishful thinking but im just sayin a 2nd season lol
