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!

Do not let the description or the fact there is only 13 episodes make you not get this. The anime starts with the premise that these kids have died and now must fight the Angel to prevent her from obliterating them, but that is not the only story arc and in fact there is so much more to this anime than meets the eye.
It has a lot of humor and I found myself laughing out loud throughout each episode, but it is so perfectly mixed with the serious aspects of these characters facing their death and coming to terms with their lives before dying. Towards the end I found my self tearing up at the more tender and touching moments and by the final episode I was a complete mess. It was beautiful and captivating from start to finish.
The only downside to this anime is the fact that it isn't longer, I would have loved to have gotten the chance to learn the backstory of all the characters because even though there is a pretty big cast I felt interested in all of them and wanting to know more!
Overall this anime has something for everyone, comedy, action, drama, great music, great characters, and a perfectly heartbreaking ending that will almost certainly have you in tears.
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.
1) Casshern Sins: Complete Series S.A.V.E. [Blu-ray]
2) Steins;Gate: Complete Series, Part Two (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
This show is definitely worth Owning.
Overall Rating 4/5
The title and the description of the show give away the premise. The show is about a bunch of dead teens in strange afterlife high school.
An anime about high school nooooooo… Yes, it’s good though. There’s guns and explosions and battling. When you already dead can you die again, the show mixes comedy with action and has some drama for dessert. Definitely not a show to miss, it’s out of print now. So BUY IT before the price goes sky high.
Theme Songs 4/5
This series opening and background music are solid good, ending theme is a bit slow but good too.
NO spoilers, the end was imperfect but worthwhile; no complaints really.
