Angel Beats - A HUGE plot hole (SPOILERS).

This entire thing is a spoiler for the anime, so unless you've seen the entire thing, don't click on the spoiler below.
The ultimate twist is that Kanade had Otonashi's heart because he was an organ donor before he died. She said her life was extended because the fact that he was an organ donor gave her a heart to live.
Sorry, but there is NO way that this is possible.
You see, when you watch the beginning of the anime, you can see that Otonashi wakes up with Yuri pointing a gun at Kanade, aka Tenshi. Then, a discussion arises to where Otonashi finds out that Kanade is the enemy, and that they need to take her out.
Here's where the plot hole arises. Think about what it takes when organ donation is involved. Otonashi HAD to have died first in order for Kanade to receive the heart, right? Well, at the end, it's implied that Otonashi's heart extended her life, which would imply that Otonashi died first, and Kanade died later on. This HAS to be the case.
EXCEPT... it's not.
The characters are all in the AFTERLIFE. When someone with a somewhat bad childhood shows up, that means that they are sent there when they die. That's what was implied.
That detail is important, because at the beginning of the anime, Kanade is there FIRST. It's implied that she's been there for a lot longer than Otonashi, ultimately meaning that Kanade has been dead longer than Otonashi... which is not possible, because Kanade said that she had Otonashi's heart, which is only possible if Otonashi died first.
Do you see the contradiction here?
I'm sorry if I ruined this anime for you, but the possibility of Kanade actually having Otonashi's heart just is NOT possible because of this.

Lol didn't ruin anything. This hole has been explained to be not a hole long ago. Just check some threads.
There is nothing suggesting he has to appear instantly into the afterlife. He can die, give the heart and then wander around in limbo for unknown time --> she appears --> he appears after.
Or he doesn't get sent until there is a reason to (related to her)
Or get sent to the world at a different time point. Its afterlife, why have to appear in exact times after each other? Just look at the ninja girl, obviously from some ancient time in Japan.
