As far as content go this was my favorite episode. The first half gave us an insight into Yuzuru's past which was really interesting. The second half is more of comedic-relief, but with great character development for Kanada. And TK was, once again, boss! I loved the whole monster parody with fishing!

And in the end, it seems things aren't quite good yet! Great cliffhanger.

man I just love how they let Naoi hang around with them like nothing happened hahahaha this show is the best. Although to be fair it was probably thanks to his overly sexy voice. Seriously, Megumi, I don't know what you're doing but it should be illegal.

And the way Yuri's just like yeah okay let's let this girl who we've been fighting against for ages come chill with us at the river. Why were they even fighting against her? Where did Yuri even get that from? Was it just because she was the student council president? This is some quality storytelling.

They explained the Yuri-Kanade fighting thing, through little tid-bits, here and there mostly, when Yuri got there, a couple others came in eventually, Yuri and them formed the initial Battlefront, but they were just doing whatever they wanted, not really a fighting unit or whatever, Kanade convinced one or more(wasnt exactly clear on that part) to do the whole 'School' thing, and they disappeared, and the dis-appearing is what made Yuri think that Kanade was the one making them dis-appear, and being that they were already dead, Yuri assumed that meant she worked for God, her hatred for the life she had was transposed onto Kanade, turning her into Angel, the Battlefronts sole enemy in the Afterlife, and causing her to teach everyone who followed her to believe she was the enemy. Doubt you will read this forum again, but if you do, I hope this helps

Wow, this episode......Talk about a sinusoidal wave of emotions. I was prepared for something a bit sad with Otonoshi's background, but man, you could almost make a whole anime just on that it seemed.

More on Tenshi

This show has had such an impact on me, that I'll really be sad once its finished. Few shows have been able to move me so deeply as AB has.

I actually cried when he was carrying his sister and talking about happy things, that was soul crushing.

There's no more enemies! Wrong!!! X_X Maybe the Angel (in the likeness of Tachibana) is a necessary evil or a function, the game/world system just spits out a new one when that post or role is vacated?

Yeah Naoi is with them now :D He seemed to wanna be pretty close to Otanashi though... Maybe he's into this as well ? lol
And Tenshi got some more development... Seems like anyone coming close to her is fated to disappear... Strangely enough she does as Otonashi asks her oO'
And her super strength is strange.
And... What a cliffhanger. I wondered what was the point in having no enemy (even though they can't die, nor kill other humans, nor attack NPCs...)
Still wonder wth are they doing all that to get food oO' Can't they just eat in the cantina like all other students ><'

Why do both "Angel's" look the same? I thought they figured out that she wasn't really an angel, also I still think that the leader's story was the saddest, I mean his was rather sad but the other two's past was still sadder... Was actually hoping he had some super un-ordinary past or something.

I really feel for him because I have a little sister as well. And just like him, I feel like I take her bright and shining face for granite. My sister might not be in the hospital, but I will really miss the little ball of hope she is now when she grows up and moves on.

So, Kanade is musician and everyone else are musical instruments? Interesting twist :)

And again - no death was explicitly shown in Otonashi's memories - niether his sister's one nor his (he could survived you know). But given his mental state his sister is probably dead.

So - is this the world of near death when whole life flashes before your eyes? When you have a chance to settle with your life? Or would it be able for them to go back and reunite with each other (I hope so, given it is Key anime)

And I guess there would be tons of angels. What bothers me is whether they have different personalities though.

Edit: Other Tenshi on the roof has different (red) eyes.

Chop chop chop chop.

Good developments.

I have a bad feeling about future events because of the promise. Also, from the previous episode's preview, someone said "Angel is a necessary existence." From this I think that since Angel isn't Angel anymore, another one was "created". Or it could be from when she used the skill to save them from the fish.
The statement below is true.

Otonashi's past was very saddening. He still bears the burden of not being able to do more for his little sister T_T
And what the hell is happening at the end ? Two angels ?

I love how the plot is set. First half they reveal Otonashi's past which was obviously gonna be sad then the second half is comedy followed by a cliff hanger to get the story progressing smoothly. job well done

yes amazing episode as always :)

tbh i didn't notice how each episode is actually 26 minutes!!

i wish more anime's are like that!!!

Naoi really looks like Naoto from Persona 4 XD

even similar in terms of attitude and manners!

he really should have gun with him right now!

and wow Naoi has taken a liking towards Otonashi!!

Hinata must be jealous?? :P

i wonder how he got the hypnotism!!

poor Hinata!!

and wow it's such a shame about Otonashi's life.

just as about your gonna bounce back to life, he dies out of nowhere.

do wonder how the train crash like that though.

finally Tenshin joins the team!

she's soo cute attending the garden!

knew Saitou was voiced by Midorikawa, Hikaru :P

Tenshin is badass taking down that whale!!!

btw didn't they show in the first few episodes that there could be more than one Tenshin :P

do wonder if this Tenshin was the first one, then again the Dark Tenshin might be the one that stabbed Otonashi in the first episode.

amazing stuff!! more more!!

omg teary eyes T_T

his sister is so pitiful, i wonder if she will still be alive if she is not out in that cold night?

judging that she has a heart or lung problems because tube from her chest, so cold weather is very sever to her condition... i guess not taking her out will surely kept her alive..

but it is sad to be alive and cant do anything but wait for her onichann in the hospital,.... mayb it was a right decision

Yay, more TK! (^_^) Chop chop chop chop!

Naoi joins the SSS. By the way, I think he's gay.

Aww, Otonashi's past. (T_T) That was just...

Dat fishing scene. So, Tachibana used Harmonics. This creates a clone.
Yellow-eyed Angel will be called Tachibana, while red-eyed Angel will be called Tenshi.
By the way, Otonashi X Tachibana!!

Otonashi's backstory was quite unique from what I've seen before. I thought it was much better because he found hope again and it wasn't just another sad story

It was just like the story that Aoki talked about in Kokoro Connect. Live life to the fullest, I guess :/

The ending also explains why Tornado is possible in the Angel Beatsverse. Nobody holds onto their fucking tickets

And another yaoi pairing? Damn :|

The way Shiina fishes is hilarious, especially considering the fact that the group probably isn't going to jump in and retrieve the fish she hit

More Tachibana c:
Her superhuman strength is amazing, although the "getting caught onto a tiny hook" thing was kinda ridiculous.
She probably could have soloed that fish if she wanted to

Well, during this episode I was wondering what the SSS are actually going to do now or if they're just going to continue dicking around doing their everyday tasks.
But then, plot twist! I hope this is good

This episode left me a bit confused... Tenshi beginned looking like the vilain, then she looked like the not-so-much-vilain and seem to be human, and now, it look like she's a freaking robot... Man, I like this anime, but for now, I really can't get a shit of what is happening.

Badass episode.
I cried at Otonashi's past.
And it was funny that Tenshi and Naoi are now their companions.
And I laughed at the part wherein they try to pull the rod and blew up in the sky, then Tenshi rescued them.
And at the last scene.... I think it's Tenshi's clone.

Reminds of of that emotional Clannad stuff =/

very good episode... poor hatsune :___; well and Otonashi.

I second this. I hate crying but my taste lies in watching heartbreaking series like Angel Beats! itself. and this episode broke my heart. Hatsune was so cute. That walk through all those lights made me smile but her last words broke my heart </3 sigh

I'm currently re-watching AB and now i can see a lot of references to other Key works :) like:

Saitou's seyu is the same who voiced Kyousuke from Little Busters (also other reference to "Mask the Saito", the Kyousuke's disguise on the battle ranks in the VN)

Flashback scene from the memories of Otonashi with his sister (just like Okazaki with Ushio from Clannad)

All the baseball thing is also another reference to Little Busters.

Soon we'll have a reference to Air and Clannad (Episode 10)

"Mission Start" and "Battle Start" is a famous phrase by Kyousuke in LB

There is a lot more but I'm too lazy to remember xD

Another Tenshi... this only means one thing. There's enough Tenshi for everyone! Naw, kidding. But that one ability that was brought up on the computer probably relates to this, and there seemed to be two of her right as she jumped down to cut the fish. But what I really find it odd is why can't she just regroup with it, if she could duplicate herself in the first places? There clearly wasn't more then 1 to start with, so either regrouping is possible, or that was the first time she's ever used it. Maybe the next episode can clear things up.
