I kind of liked this OP better than the original Lia version...
I seriously thought that Hinata is going to disappear, fortunately not, still I feel sad for him...
Maybe I give this ep a 3/5, the previous one was better~

Yui = awesome. Though I wonder, did she OD on speed before she died? To say that girl is full of energy is an understatement.

I liked this episode. I hope this show can manage to balance out the comedy and drama, then it may actually become as good as a lot of people expected.

Entertaining and slice'of'life-like episode, I liked it, much better than the last one which was just forced drama. I lol'd at death metal and the slap stick humor.

Chapter one of the light novel explains how Hinata died. Sadly there is only one chapter translated at the moment.

Just look at the site you posted, at the bottom there's a link to translations of the following chapters ;)

This episode was honestly god awefull for me.
The opening was the best thing about the whole episode as the rest was filled with 3rd rate jokes and 'developments' that were so obvious that it hurt...THIS honestly did not need an episode by itself.

They haven't got enough time anyway to introduce all characters...so why do they concentrate so much on people who seem to be so unimportant?!


I don't think Hinata should be named as "unimportant". I don't know what kind of role he may have on the future but, in the credits, he appears along with the other main characters: Yuri, Otonashi, Tenshi and Yui (the latter is also a mystery to me), what leaves me thinking that he will be important at some point, which makes me happy because I like him a lot. =)

Well, about the episode, aside Hinata's development, it was the weakest episode so far, but I still gave it a 4/5 since I gave all the other 5/5.

I blame the fact that there's only 12 episodes for this show. If there were 24, I'm pretty sure it would've been a lot better for the pacing. But oh well, we're just 4 episodes in.

Yp probably if they got 24 ep to put all the ideas for plot it would be much better. I don't have idea how they end this whole story in only 12 episodes.
Hmm about the episode - it didn't expose any new informations about whole this after life thing. It wasn't bad but not as good as previous ones.
New version of op was interesting but definitely worse than first one.
All in all 3.8/5 ;]

I really liked this episode. Don't know why people hate Yui so much, she's not only super cute and hilarious, but also probably saved Hinata from disappearing forever.(Which would of sucked a lot since he's one of the most interesting characters of the show, for me anyway.) And this was not a filler as they were playing illegally to go against Tenshi, plus it had some character development.

What really caught me of guard was Yuri at the end. "You two, Just disappear please." I was like... are you serious?! O.o I've kinda lost a bit a respect for Yuri right there.

The new opening was awesome!! I miss the piano but I find the faster vocals to be better for that song.

Angel Beats! started off with us not knowing much of course.. then it was actually pretty good. But now it's just getting lamer and lamer. If it keeps this rate up.. I'll probably drop it.

It's been a while since I've seen a show revel in it's mediocrity and cliche the way Angel Beats does. But despite that, Hinata looked cute with short hair, evil lady laughs always get me, and the op was much better than the other one.

But Yui is too much, and Hinata messing with her was just as annoying. Terrible episode.

TK says "crazy baby" when Yui get strangled in celling make me lol XD
At first i thought..oh shit Hinata will gone when he became center of the episode & his flashback he made terrible things that he regret most. But Yui interrupted & give submission to him,only later she also got one from angry Hinata :P

Also i enjoy how much they messing with each other,i rooting for YuixHinata

Hinata character is so interesting (if you read novel) & make him disappear so early will much make me disappoint because he is far interesting than Otonashi to be honest.
But yeah this episode kinda filler to me despite with Hinata story....when they will fuck some shit & pulling epic battle between SSS & God.
What Yuri says in the end bugging me....
EDIT:Am i only one that think that Tenshi look a bit annoyed when she crossed her hand with her coach jacket?

I kinda have a theory about this. When people die with regrets get sent to this place and when they disappear when they have no more regrets about their life.

What Yuri said at the end seemed like she's trying to help everyone disappear.

Excellent show so far, just as I had hoped! The OP and ED have all been awesome so far. It is interesting to see the back stories of each of the characters.

So, uh, no one is going to mention that Yui with the cute "demon tail" is a sign that they are the bad guys? Including the fact that the broken handcuffs around her further symbolizes resistance?! She's devilishly cute.

However... I don't want a sappy story about why she puts up that false cute act. You'd think they all died with a fairly touching story but her level is way up there in the personality department, which I can't see how that will translate well for a death story. Meh, don't really care.

Shiina is great and Yui is cute. For me this was a good episode one of the better ones comedy wise. Though I don't know if this is good considering how short the series seems it is going to be. I liked the rock version of the op. Get your panties out of a knot people it was just one episode. It was just as good as the regular. The death metal bit was funny especially TK going "oh my crazy baby" xD

Yui doesn't annoy me that much, I think she's cute. I definitely prefer Iwasawa to Yui, but Iwasawa's gone and that won't change. Oh well.

This was a pretty nice episode, I wanted to learn more about Hinata. It sucks that his back-story was so short, though. He misses catching the ball, goes emo for a bit in the locker room, and takes something from a guy. That's it. /:

TK was awesome as always. He makes me laugh in every episode.

And what's up with Yuri at the end? "Disappear. Both of you." She seemed really serious, and that's a bitch comment to make about her comrades/supposed friends.

i seen 2 points to this episode
1 it shows that Tenshi might be purposely creating situations to make people disappear.
2 Yui was seeing how Tenshi responds to different situations.

Did anyone else get that?

Huh. The amount of "Yui isn't that bad/is pretty cute" is not as large as the "She's hella annoying." I didn't expect that.

I loved the OP and I liked the episode a lot. However, Yuri's comment about wishing them to both disappear made me dislike her a lot... In those circumstances, I don't how that joke could be acceptable :/

Well I think Yui is a good addition to this anime.
I think it was a good episode and i liked it a lot!
She saved Hinata from himself and thats what made me really happy! I just wanted to know what will happen to Hinata and Yui in the mid future of this anime ?
There are a bunch of hate comments I mean A BUNCH ON YUI! what did she do to you guys ? She only came out and you dislike her o.O give her a chance, maybe she will be a worthwhile chara. you don't know what she could do ? You dont know about her past, you dont know what she will do in the future. I am glad that she is part of this anime. I mean have you not seen a anime like this with no talkative fangirl ?

The opening is good, well the animation but I still like Angel's a bit more. The old opening will probably be back next week, so dont get angry for a small little change.

Yeah I worry that the anime is so short 13 episodes ? right they should focus more on the main point, but if there were going to be 24 episodes or somewhat they could take their time.

But overall I am glad Hinata did not pass away :3

It was a pretty funny episode I guess. It felt so worthless though, almost like a decent filler. Well, 3.5/5. I liked the last OP a lot better.

And why is it the only the last lead singer who gets to disappear. That is super lame imo.

I don't think it's a filler, I think it was supposed to be a Breather Episode after the drama-bomb of last week. Although if that's the case, Key suck at Breather Episodes because it made me cry. XD

I enjoyed it though. I like Yui, I liked the OP, I LOVED the bromance. XD And I laughed at the jokes...

This verison of the OP was a bit better. I still like both the OP songs better than the ED.

I really loved Yui and her energetic personality, I had a feeling I would like her even before the anime came out, I just love those high energy characters that bring comedic relief.

Angel Beats! always surprises me, and I'm starting to think it's actually a good thing, especially since Key always cooked the same recipe before this one. I really wonder if he'd have disappeared, had he catched this ball.

Cliche, I suppose. Character of her is way too much overused now-a-days. Also, she ruins the atomosphere, abruptly.

Downright horrible episode. Jokes are unfunny and everything was just felt horribly misplaced. It is blending all sort of genres in wrong approach. I have some doubt that this series will even get 7 from me.

Hinata's cool though.

I'm not sure why I keep watching this. It's not spectacular or anything and the art bugs me, but I continue to watch any way. At least the story isn't too bad, yet.
