Editorial Reviews

It sucks being dead. Sucks even more to be trapped in a surreal afterlife where you're caught between the living and the dead-where a mysterious, violent Angel is trying to pull you over to...somewhere. What do you do? Well, if you're this group of rough-and-tumble teens, you grab every weapon you can get your hands on and give Heaven hell! High-caliber action and locked-and-loaded comedy meet on a rock and roll battleground in Angel Beats!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily one of the best series in years July 6, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
This series is short; It's 13 episodes. However, it accomplishes so much in that short timespan.

The series starts out like an action series, but it's so much more than that. It is potentially one of the most well-rounded series I have ever watched; Action, comedy, drama, and even a bit of romance are all covered - in amazing fashion - and by the end, the viewer is left emotionally attached to the characters, allowing for a good cry at the finale. The character development is very strong, but unfortunately the briefness of the series renders it impossible to cover EVERYONE'S backstory, which leaves you wishing for more a bit. That said, I am completely and utterly satisfied with the series as a whole. Each episode leaves you wanting to watch the next one, without an overly heavy use of cliffhangers.

It is very rare to come across a gem like this: Short, very well written, and executed nearly flawlessly. I would strongly recommend fans of ANY genre of anime to watch this. Even if this isn't the type of series you normally watch, this one is worth branching out to - I guarantee it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series that needed a few more episodes. June 10, 2011
Format:DVD
I've been waiting for this series to be released in the US to buy it since I loved it when I saw the original broadcast.

The story centers on Otonashi, a young man who suddenly wakes up inside an unknown school grounds, there he meets Yuripe, a girl who tells him to help her find god so she can kick/punch him in the face, now this may sound weird, however Otonashi soon finds out that what the girl says is not entirely out of whack.

This anime is a combination of drama with comedy and its actually quite well blended, though sometimes it feels forced, however most of the time due to the story you realize its not necesarily forced but rather obvious.

The story in this anime has soo much potential, that its a shame it was only made a 13 episode series, the cast of characters is quite big and you get attached somehow to most of them so its really disappointing how they only focused on the backstories of a mere few, you could say this is the biggest gripe I have with this series.

The animation, music, characters and story are all top notch, and it should be viewed by everyone at least once, I gave it a 4 outta 5 becuase it was obvious this anime needed a few more episodes as stated in many message boards during the time of broadcast, either that or not make all the characters soo awesome. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite series May 3, 2011
Format:DVD
Angel Beats! is by far one of the best series I have ever seen. It's a bit short, but it's the perfect length for the amount of content covered in the story. As previous reviews have said, there's a lot that could have been done with the series, especially fleshing out minor characters, but to try to do that in 13 episodes would have been terrible for the series as a whole. (If you've ever watched Kyoto Animation's adaptation of Air, you know what I'm talking about.) I honestly would have loved for Angel Beats to be twice the length that it is, but it's still great as it stands.

As for the dub, I got to see the first episode of it at this year's Anime Boston. It's being done by Sentai Filmworks, but don't let that discourage you. I know that their dub of Clannad wasn't exactly the most popular, mostly because of voices that didn't fit the characters at all. They've done a much better casting job this time around, and every character sounds just the way they should, not far off from the original Japanese voices. Most importantly, the GirlDeMo songs (or at least the one in the episode shown at the convention) are completely untouched. My main concern about this dub was that they would try to translate the songs into English and fail, but they haven't changed them one bit.

In short:
If you've seen this series before and you liked it, buy it.
If you've never seen it but like action, buy it.
If you've never seen it but like comedy, buy it.
If you've never seen it but like stories that make you cry, buy it.
If you've never seen it but like excellent music, buy it.

Basically, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never has a show brought me this many tears. June 29, 2011
By DvtDude
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I don't even know where to begin with this review. But this show is so damn good that I wish I had the perfect word for it. But I don't. This is one of the most touching shows I have ever seen, not just in anime, but in all forms of media. I fell in love with this show from the first episode and couldn't stop watching it, I was hooked on it so much that I finished it an entire day and I have no regrets.

Of course I'm going to be getting this the second it comes out here in the states on DVD. This is a show I could watch over and over and over again, I would never get sick of it.

I don't want to spoil the plot but I'll go into little detail just to get your head wrapped around it. When these young students die they are sent into an afterlife that they do not truly understand and they believe if they give up and announce they truly died they will vanish from existence, it's only when the characters ban together and work along side each other do they understand the truth about dying in peace.

This show has so much going for it, a tremendous musical score, great comedy for the relief, a wonderful cast of developing characters, and one of the best stories I have ever seen. I don't care how strong you are or if you are too manly to cry, when you see that final episode you will have tears streaming down your cheeks on just how fantastic it is.

Angel Beats is not just one of the best Animes I have seen, it's one of the best television shows I have ever watched.

Do yourself a favor and don't miss this one.
