Although it is a miracle that Kaginado Academy remains standing, Yuri Nakamura and her cohorts vow to retaliate against the god that created their universe. Pointing out its many absurdities, she proposes that the academy is actually a stand-in for the afterlife.

Yuri's theory makes everyone restless; some begin questioning and even second-guessing their own memories. However, not all agree with the notion, defending the fact that their current existence is a result of their past rather than the interference of an omniscient being. Life at Kaginado Academy continues to be frenetic—despite how much the students want it to be otherwise!

If you're wondering whether or not you can enjoy this anime without having seen any of the shows within it, the answer is simple: "No.". It was hard for me to follow and I've seen Angel Beats (One of the best anime ever made), Clannad and a couple of episodes of Little Busters. This thing is absolutely loaded with inside jokes that only those familiar with all of the series will get. The ones that I understood were funny, and there were a few universally funny gags like slapstick humor. But, overall, it is very inside. You will not enjoy this or get it at ...

Compared to Isekai Quartet, which didn’t fully utilize its cross-series-interactions and meta/reference-heavy comedy, Kaginado got no brakes what-so-ever. It starts by tons of Key Universes getting thrown together and chaos ensues, as it pokes fun at everything the works stand for, where nothing is taboo. Not just using the comedic elements or similarities from the different shows, but also using the most emotional moments/climaxes for laugh, where you burst out laughing from what would previously make you break down crying… and I absolutely it. Kaginado S2 is more of the same, but adding Angel Beats to mix.

The chibi visuals are cute, with many funny ...

*Spoiler Warning*

After not really understanding Season 1 (mostly because I knew practically nothing about the source material), I was able to finally understand a part of the show with the arrival of the Angel Beats characters! Yuri, the leader of the Afterlife Battlefront, and her crew (the cast of Angel Beats) make a dramatic appearance at Kaginado's school festival, revealing that they were there the entire time disguised as "NPC" like assistants and declaring that the world they're in is just some sort of trick by God to further punish them. Essentially, it runs parallels to the main plotline in the Angel Beats anime.
