Does that repulsive vocabulary I have presented before you which is merely a "social language" of [a/, should be taken seriously?

This sentence is weird (does that [stuff] should be taken seriously?). Anyway, if I'm to assume that you were just imitating the average [a/ response I would get, then sure, because that clears up the confusion brought up when I saw that you gave this anime an 8.

I think not. The industry in what way have been affected? That is very silly to assume so, since people clearly go there for the lulz.


Again, this thought isn't really organized so I'm sorry in advance if I completely buttfuck the response: the industry has been affected by low standards. They put out garbage, people watch it and don't complain, so standards never have to raise. As a result, things get crappier and crappier until we have stuff like Mayoi Neko Overrun airing. See what I'm getting at? Not that we can really do anything about it here.

That was an amazing, emotional episode! And the animation for the performance was great! Iwasawa-san's story was so sad and easy to relate to. I love how music was her saving-grace. It was sad to see her move on.

When she started to sing the new song, my tears just started flowing. The atmosphere was set up perfectly for that beautifully emotional song. ;A;

The concert scene was epic... sad the way that she went out but incredible last song... (will admit that it brought a man tear lol)

On another note, if Angel is not supported by God then what is she O_o?

I'm actually really bothered by this episode.

I came into this anime thinking it would be an epic battle between SSS and Tenshi (possibly more angels) for dominance of the world where everyone is immortal and doesn't age, which was a REALLY high selling point for me, since it was a really interesting premise for a battle.

But if everyone's just going to disappear one by one by accepting what happened to them, then all I'm getting is another drama.

*sigh*

Really, I am disappointed and I'm not even sure if I should watch the next episode. There isn't any suspense or anything at this point.

All I'll be doing from week to week is wondering who is going to disappear next, until there isn't anyone left.

Where's the fun in that?

Wow~ What an episode. I've read "the concert wasnt needed" WTH? The concert was AWESOME. I just loved this whole episode, the drama in it and all ... This episode had pretty amazing music. And... My theory is that they disappear when they have found what they "live" for... When they accomplish it they disappear because they have no unfinished business. Hence~ Afterlife is the chance for those who died to finish their bussines... It was a shame that I didn't cried in this episode... Iwasawa was so cool... too bad she left so soon. At least she found what she desired to do the most, she did what made her feel alive again! I just came up with this theory that she might go back to the real world? IDK . This Anime makes me like it more and more by the minute ^^

I really do like this show, but I can't stand the fact that everything seems to be a rehash. TMoHS, K-ON, CLANNAD, I think next week's episode is going to be a baseball one too.

And, Iwasawa disappeared! D: She was becoming one of my favourite charas too ;__;

Thanks to Shiro-chan for scripting! ♥

(Man, it's a good thing Disappearance came out when it did or else I'd really hate that franchise)

You are all getting too worked up about nothing. The music was good, the story was good, and some questions were mixed in. Is Angel really bad or what? You shouldn't watch an anime with too many expectations because you'll just be bored if you anticipate everything and annoyed if you think something was missing. Just watch and enjoy.

Episode 3 was okay. Songs were okay, animation was great but pacing is way to fast. If this was a 13 episode long season, and you start removing characters in the same way as episode 3, I don't see how main storyline's going to be properly explained or developed. Although you could say that episode 3 was emotional, it was a little too quick to introduce and remove. However plot hole wise, I'm not particularly bothered by the little nuances here or there. That's just petty, but if any major plot holes occur in the main storyline it's definitely going to disappoint me. Hopefully they'll explain some more background for tenshi and the world which they're in...(especially the use of the npcs.. for some reason they intrigue me).

I know it is hard to say this to you but yes, even before the show started they already said they are going to rip off as many shows as they can. And then you are going to get even more sob stories as never before. What did i just doing?

So I'm guessing Otonashi will get his memories back in the end, and learn about everyone else's past and how they died.

I'm really enjoying the music in this episode :3 But I hate the fuckers that stopped the concert >/ I'm sort of sad about Iwasawa D: Is she actually gone for good?

Also joking aside or not, it's getting annoying with people saying "LOL K-ON DID MUSIC FIRST."

Wtf do you think Macross was? Think back to the 80s, or even further. K-On's a shit hole compared to some of those animes with their craptastic music and their high pitched voices.

very much looking forward to episode 4 now.
i never expected to say that.

And less things would have happened, and they would all be girls with super-moe powers, and the music would be a lot worse.

I definitely got more drawn into this episode than the last one. The comedy is still hit and miss for me but I am really starting to like the characters. Especially angel.

However the biggest flaw is these sob story backgrounds. It may be better to hint at these things rather than spell it out. I for one think these things lack impact because of the level of unbelievably to them. I mean come on. A single strike from her parents that she got in childhood comes back to kill her? A car accident or random disease would have been more believable. Cheap. But believable.

All and all I think besides the drama, everything is going nicely.
All this haruhi/yuri bullshit is starting to piss me off as well. They are two different shows people! Just because one or two elements are borrowed idiots are bashing. Wake up! No anime is ever 100% original. I bet if this show took elements from say....here now then and there or some old anime nobody would care but since it's Haruhi everyone throws a hissy fit. Settings, characters.....these have all be reused at one point or another.
It's not the elements of a show that matters, it's the execution.

Holy shit that changes things a lot. The episode was probably the best until now but am kind of sad that they probably disposed off the best female character in the show so fast.

So the Angel maybe has nothing to do with them disappearing. It seems they just vanish when they feel happy.
From this developments it may well be that the Angel just helps keeping that world operating.
If she a real girl and just made herself look like that Angel thing by developing all that, then she's a genius.

BTW are we going to get a sad past story from everyone?

If you look at 11:07 in episode 3, she already had the guitar. From this, you could say she was hit when she was a high school student, at around the time when she wanted to leave her house. And because I like looking up stuff, the symptoms of cerebral contusion can last from several hours to weeks.

k-on actually fails in music.
yes the songs are good but the anime itself barely shows them performing live.

as for angel beats, i really think there is more than just the theory that they are in a coma, not really dead, etc. cuz if that theory is true, why would there only be around 10-20 people that arent NPCs?im pretty sure there are more ppl than that in comatose at a single given instant. im leaning towards the speculation that angel beats is a world after death before you go to heaven.

Iwasawa was like the only female I liked so far in this anime and all of a sudden she decides to pull a Jesus stunt like that.
What a load of balls.
Besides that, it was a good episode. I just know I'm gonna miss Iwasawa.

Aw, I didn't think it would get this sad. I figured someone would eventually reincarnate, but I just thought it would be more shocking and less tranquil.

Also, really glad they didn't do any pervert jokes when they were in Tenchi's room.

They will, unless you mean every single song they've done, which is an I don't know. And if you don't mind me quoting wikipedia...
Three singles for Girls Dead Monster are planned for release. The first, "Crow Song", will be released on April 23, 2010; the second, "Thousand Enemies", will follow on May 12, 2010 and the third, "Little Braver", will be sold on June 9, 2010. The songs for Girls Dead Monster are sung by Marina and LiSA.

And if you do have a problem, find it yourself/check wikipedia's sources.

This was a really good episode, I like Iwasawa so much more than Haruhi-clone #84 but the way she just did that last stand song and quietly moved on having fulfilled her dream of playing that song was so beautiful. I'll be sad she's gone, but the way they wrote her out was so beautiful I don't think I can be upset about it. Best episode so far and will probably be one of the best of the season.
