Still not impressed. I won't drop it, 'cause it's Key and stuff, but they better add a whole lot of drama if they want this to be good in the end.

There are a bunch of hate comments I mean A BUNCH ON YUI! what did she do to you guys ?


So unless she does something to me like gimme a ride or make me a sandwich that I'm allowed to hate her? What kinda seasoning...er, reasoning is that? It tastes horrible!

She only came out and you dislike her o.O


Neko-NYA-NYA...... Absent in ep 3.

give her a chance, maybe she will be a worthwhile chara. you don't know what she could do ?


I don't know about the others but I will give t'is bitch another chance despite already witnessing what she can do since ep 3.... Who knows, maybe I will love her when she freaking dies or something.....



If he's not with us, he's AGAINST us!!!

Am I the only one that wants TK to join GirlsDeMo? Okay, I realize that will never happen but he totally has the cool personality that Iwasawa had..... I can dream right?

I liked this episode, and the conclusion was better than I expected.

i;m wondering right now whether there is a larger plot or what to this series, its entertaining admittedly

Eh, not bad.  The baseball games actually were more exciting than I thought they were going to be; who knew that Otonashi could be such a competent pitcher? And putting all the idiots on display on one team was good for some comedy. I have no comments regarding the OP, none.

Hm, the opening animation is different but still good. Yui sure reminded me of two To-Love-Ru characters.

Fuck your Yui.

Fuck your Iwasawa.

Fuck all of your favorite characters.

TK is and will always be the best character in this entire show. Search your feelings; you know it to be true.


Michael Rivas is epically awesome as TK no doubt and like I said, he could be the man of moment in the US of A. But there a ton of great Seiyus in Angel Beats, too. However, here's my what the hell moment.. Why the hell do you not have Eri Kitamura (Yui's Seiyu) who also sings fairly well.. sing the opening w/Lia? That would be great. ---- Randy

They really need to cut down the comedy in this show. It's getting really annoying, and I'd rather see some more character development or more drama.

The OP is still epic even though it's changed in this ep^^
Too much Yui in this ep, she's sorta like a hyper version of Fuuka with a high-pitched voice. Does she sing the OP? Sounds so different when talking lol.
Hinata's backstory isn't as good as Yuri's and Iwasawa's...more drama and action please...not comedy...

If this is the new OP from now on, then respect for making an OP for only two episodes of the series.
If that was just a joke and it goes back to "normal", even more respect for making an OP just for a single episode and Yui!

In my opinion, the original voice sounds nicer in the chorus and Yui's in the verse;
but I like both of them, so lets just settle on -> this <- as a compromise :D

Kind of felt like a filler episode but still enjoyable. Loved TK and Hinata. "Are you ...?" "NO!!" XD
Yui is okay ... I think she's pretty funny.
Hope next week's episode has more "plot" though

Dear gawd.
Somebody, please, tie up Yui & put duck-tape on her mouth.
Or what's better, make her disappear already.

Seriously, how can they remove an awesome female guitar player with a sexy voice & replace her with a annoying twit with the voice of a chipmunk? Bad move I'd say.

She also ruined a perfectly good (and somewhat corny) moment between Hinata & Otanashi, dammit lol.

Kidding aside, I thought this was a very weak episode.
The jokes may be funny the first time, but after the fourth or fifth time around, it gets really old.

I hope the next episode improves~

Episode 4 is a baseball episode. Why does that sound familiar? :/

Anyway, this episode was really weak. The comedy was unfunny, the story was unengaging, the whole thing felt really trite, and much of the humour came across as an absolute failure in self-parody.

Also, they got my hopes up that somebody might try and have a logical conversation with TK. I mean, how hilarious would that have been? His random one-liner non-sequiturs are funny enough as it is.

Weird, I actually thought this ep's comedy was better than the previous eps. Less Haruhi-styled, more Gintama-styled, which can only be a good thing. That isn't to say it was ALL funny, or even THAT funny... but Angel Beats isn't really about the humour. (Or they shouldn't try to make it that way, at least.)

Yup. Happened in Clannad, xxxHolic, Samurai Champloo and I remember this one girl in Pokemon they kept meeting with a baseball obsession....

Oh yeah, that other show had one as well...cause it was totally ripping off that right?

Man I thought Hinata was a goner. Loved this OP waaay more than the previous piano one, except for the Yui overload. I don't dislike Yui, though. Probably because she gets beaten and rejected a lot despite her loli-ness. And Shiina's one weird cutie. She's my second favorite next to Iwasawa <3

Well I guess Hinata's disappearance was avoided but there is still the missing how he died thing so why would they skip that condition for him to dissapear when clearly it was not shown..........I know why he died from reading it here=> http://subsmith.wordpress.com/2010/04/01/angel-beats-track-zero-chapter-1-a-rocket-for-two/ but that has yet to be shown.....hoping for a nice drama of that part of Hinata......

I like the new Op. It doesn't matter for me which Op that will be used for the next episode, i like them both.
As for this episode, i really enjoyed it. Its comedy part isn't bad imo and we also know some of Hinata past. Although Yui interuption at the end is kinda lame.

She may be annoying but somehow i entertained with her stupidity & overacting attitude.The fact that Hinata giving her submission when she try to act cute (Yui-nyan~) or she getting little annoying amuses me.It's rare to see a guy beat down a cute girl as opposed girl always beat down guy when he doing something stupid in most anime.
Shiina is a weirdo with her broom balancing training xD

I think it was shown already. In my opinion the root of problem that caused him died is because he failed to catch the ball, you know because he


If only, he could catch that ball, he won't feel depressed and won't use drugs. You see that's the root that caused him died (because he failed to catch the ball). If he catch the ball in the end of this episode, his regret will be gone and he will feel satisfy and because of that "poof" he disappear.

Yeah, i agree, but i still have one question. How will Hinata 'dissapear' now? They rather won't be playing baseball for the second time...

Yeah, it's really lame if they make an episode with baseball again.
But, i think he won't disappear, afterall he is

He's too valuable for the plot imo.

Well, everything can be happened. All we can do is just wait and see what will be happened in the end.

I loved Yui, but seriously...an other filler kind episode with only some minimal plot at the end, and having the same jokes repeat again and again in the first half? You are disappointing me Meada Jun.

But I admitt, broomstick was cool.

Well no it was not done.....we did not see him remember exactly how he died.....the drugs were just there because of the stupid guy who gave him some to boost his performance? Could it have been steroids in pill form? Depression? Yeah it was there but only because he was negatively talked about in failing to catch that ball that could have made his team win that game. His death cause might not have been at all because of all this....it is not clear then. The proof is the last thing he was supposed to do to be freed from being in this world....yes?

Interesting you mention this but since he was saved maybe it was a good show of what can be done to save people from disappearing....

Also, about the drug. If you watch again and read the sub, you should know that his senpai said that the pills he gave to him will calm his nerves. You know, some drug that calm nerves makes your reflexes slow, it reasonable enough imo to assume that after he take that drugs,

Someones always gpt a complaint about something. I for one thought the episode was great and Yui is great to have around as well. Some from the episode discussion want constant drama. I dont know about anyone else but these are kids in the show. If their existance evolved around constant drama and people disappearing, that would be a pretty sad existance. I like TK too but Im kind of hoping he disappears soon so people stop bashing other characters. TK isnt the main star of the story - sorry

No, we don't want drama, what we want is a plot. I personally don't mind that Hinata didn't disappear, cos he is a nice character, but 3/4 of the episode was spent on the joke how he is not popular at all, or how he fights with Yui. So what about the plot? What about God? What about actually doing something about their situation?

I swear it's Sora no Woto all over again: a promising 13 episode series, where only the last 2 episodes will have some plot in it, which will be a bit confusing at first, since all the story will be packed into 40 minutes.

JUST SIZE? FRANCIS? JUST CHANGED THE SIZE? >_____>;;

Comparison of your shitty gif and maximatum's
- no blurring blurs like yours
- smooth and faster animation flow
- high resolution than yours
- your gif in-between interval is so inconsistant
- size comparison 2000kb vs 500kb, but Maximatum's one is 100times better than yours.

I mean... what program you use to make all these gifs?... :/ If you are going to say that you manually screenshot everything and don't know how to use adobe flash and photoshop, there are 0.000000000000000000000675% that your gif ain't falco.

Maybe, i only read the page that you gave me, so i don't know it's true or not. But i think the anime version is good enough in showing us about Hinata's regret and the condition that will make him disappear.

some tranquilizers are addictive? true. About they have side effects like depression or not? i don't know. I have limited knowledge in medical. I only know that when you want to get rid your dependance from drugs, sometimes you can get depression in the proses.
