GODDAMN SLOW-ASS RESCUE TEAMS! (even if the "rescue at the last minute while main hero dies" thing is kind of overplayed, it always gets to me)

-The entire train scene was almost like a completely different anime. I actually liked it because I figured "Otanashi dies in a train crash" just seemed kind of cheap for such a main character. It makes sense that it would be something that really suits him like taking on the role of Jack from LOST like saving people. I bet if that asshole hadn't stolen the water he would have lived. Where did that jerk think he was going anyway? Both sides were blocked.

-OtonashiXKaede moments are just so sweet.

-This sort of "let's maneuver around Yuri" thing is giving me Death Note vibes but in a good way not a "I'll be the new god" way.

-So how are they going to cover the pasts of all the SSS in 4 episodes? Looks like from the last sentence of the preview, Yui's up first. (Oh god, if TK disappears, it's gonna SUCK!)

I too have to admit, this show has gone in a completely different direction than I thought. Now the tagline of "The greatest story celebrating life" in the PV makes more sense.

Totally agree ^
I'm also concerned how they're going to cover all the SSS members.
The story has totally changed directions ^as mentioned above.
As a side note:
Who does Otonashi REALLY like?
Next ep!

I agree with you... Well the TK part especially... No actually about the OtonashixKanade part too. Wait... they said that it's the "Greatest Story Celebrating LIfe"?

-What they were actually signing was the Organ Donor section of their ID cards.
But it's still heart shattering to know he died just as the rescue team arrived..


At least his body saved some one in the end, hopefully since he become a doner... I was amazed about how he tried to treat everyone's wounds, except his own...sadly it's because of this that he probably died... D:

It was a good episode, I loved the flashback... and the realization at the end. (:
I think this my favorite episode so far...haha.

5/5 hands down. Dropped the humor but in turn the drama was played out to perfection.

We finally got the much anticipated pov switch. Everyone was anticipating Yuri was a faux protagonist from the beginning so it didn't come as too much of a surprise but I still like the development.

Kanade and Otonashi established as an exception pair, I LIKE ^.^. particularly that last line.

I'm no doctor by any means, but Otonashi must have had some serious internal bleeding (judging from him coughing up blood and the huge blood colored spot on his stomach), and probably damaged his intestines, because that dark spot was about the area your greater omentum is, which probably got tore open inside him and spread an infection.

Really, that sounds like he was one of the ones in the most pain, but he sacrificed everything he had for those people. Amazing how he made such a huge personality change from a selfish self-obsessed child to an all out caring guy that pretty much gave up his life for all those people by not asking for extra supplies or killing morale with their leader being in that kind of position.

Pretty amazing episode. Drama was great in this one, almost like Clannad. The donor card scene was outstanding, made me optimistic that those types of people may be out there in the world. Otonashi sacrificing himself to actually save another's life, even in death.

The humor was still there though: "Oh!, Everybody seems to be quite smart today! Did you eat something bad?" LOL. And TK and Matsushita dancing outside of the door... rofl :D

It takes the same amount of muscles to close and open your eyes, so it's most likely when someone dies that they'll be open considering people spend like 7/8 of their lives with their eyes open.

I'm quite feel like the same when he died, feel so bad about that when he could have a success life as become a doctor.
I think that guy that Otonashi saved first in the train is not going to forgot the moment but everyone was half dead there so probably in hospital they tell that he is awesome or something like that, even thought they only been together in one week I guess he cried for Otonashi and regret about not giving him the water or something like that, well that guy shared the water bottom, but what is going on with Otonashi injured in the stomach? Why didn't rescue team getting there earlier?
No one is bringing up dynamit or something that can explode the wall, it would be great used of something happend that.

I agree with your frustration. When they were still in the tunnel for the 7th day, I was really mad, cause there is no way the thought of breaking up the tunnel would have been thought of by the police/rescue workers. Even if they couldn't blow up the rubble with explosives because of the people inside, it took them 7 days to claw their way into the tunnel's rubble? They obviously knew where the train was since it is on the tracks, so threre should not have been a problem of finding the passengers quickly.

Well anyway, Otonashi's story of self-sacrifice was given more drama because of the long wait, so it makes for a good story.

Haha I'm the same. I love these hopeless situations, but they somehow make it kind of scenarios. Kind of like code geass, but less depressing than the end of season 2

I think Otonashi is going to get a few of them, and it will be Yuri, TK (maybe), Hinata (of course), and a few others are going to find Otonashi out, and they will fight him and Kanade at the end somehow.

I don't know how it really works, but I could imagine it may take a while: First they need to actually notice that the train is missing, then have to find it (it's on the tracks, but they can't simply look for it by train if they already expect an accident), and when that's done they just know they need to bring equipment to get through the rubble... 7 days still sounds a bit much though, I don't know...

Dying before the rescue teams arrived. That's just a sickening way to die. Still at least it's better than that one I seen before which was the "Family committing suicide and leaving the father behind to see the rescue teams arrive five seconds later." I mean that was just a kick to the head.

Drama was certainly improved in this episode. Still it seems that they just are not going to deliver on that war against god thing I was hoping for. But then again I figured that out after the second episode.

He's too fun to be with. xD
It's funny that he's not good in English...even though he speaks it majority of his screen-time. (but then again...most of the time, they don't even make sense xD)

Aah...another pretty sad episode. T3T
Yuzuru~...

But...Yuzuru x Kanade makes me happy TwT hehe

But really 7 days? Slow rescue team.

I figured there was more to his past then we were given before since they haven't showed the true death scene of any member yet. The latter 2/3 of this episode was done really well and totally overshadowed the meeting at the beginning. (Still no tear from me though.) This is what Angel Beats! should have been like all along. Sorry, Maeda but your I-want-it-to-be-a-comedy justification does not work. It should not have taken 8 episodes to build up to this, such a waste. I'm not sure how they'll fit "graduating" every member of the SSS in 4 (?) episodes but I'm still looking forward to the answers Otonashi also wants. What will happen to him and Kanade?

The true message of the show, I think got repeated twice in this episode and really struck a cord with me. "We will be saved." How uplifting.

Kanade ftw! <3

I agree like crazy. I enjoy comedy somewhat, but I started watching Angel Beats expecting it to be a drama, and that's kind of what I was looking for. Don't get me wrong, most of the comedy scenes are pretty funny, but I preferred something more serious.

Maeda is a strange guy. He took a school harem and turned it into one of the most depressing things I've ever seen (depressing as in sad, not scarring like Elfen Lied or School Days), and then he takes Angel Beats and makes it a comedy-drama..

I feel like the ratio is like 3/5 comedy and relaxation, and that should be switched with the drama and story development.

Well, now watching the subs, it seems like Kanade becoming class president was a HUGE issue.

Although, god dammit. Is anyone getting the 'Seven Pounds' vibe now? I mean, they made it a big point to show that he was a organ donor... wonder how that is going to play into later.

Strange people think up strange concepts and twist everything, haha. I probably respect Maeda for that much.

This. Probably the only reason (other than Kanade) why I'm still watching Angel Beats! It's lame and has been utterly disappointing for 7-8 episodes but it keeps me on my feet, thinking exactly what you say every week. ;)

This was a really good episode as far as Angel Beats! is concerned. I'm sorry I ever doubted your status as main character Yuzuru =(. I'm looking forward to how he plans to bring peace to everyone in 4 more episodes. Cockroach seems to be the focus next week. If anything, Maeda most likely would make even me feel some sympathy towards her. Oh, and I laughed at next weeks title coupled with the fact it's focusing on her. Trying to reference the IRL singer YUI huh? XD

Also, during the flashback, I thought they would start eating people to survive. Does that make me crazy?

When he was dying and he started thinking about his little sister,and then he filled out his organ donor card,I started tearing up.

When everyone else realized what he was doing and started doing the same thing,tears were definatly coming.

But when it seems like all is lost,the rescue people come,but then you realize that he died right when they came,and you can see his face with his eyes open,I was practically balling! TTATT Poor Otonashi~!

But,on a happier note,I did like the Otonashi x Kanade parts~<3
