Much appreciated! Some of you might have already picked up on this between this article and the piece I did for Bungo Stray Dogs, but I sympathize with these kinds of characters as someone who had his own share of social anxiety and troubles opening up to people, even without directly referencing any particular event.

I’m a huge Fate fan, having watched multiple shows, played the original game, tried FGO, etc. Even for me, the amount of Fate gibberish/lore/cameos in this show was pretty overwhelming. I think it came together well in the second half, but the first half of the show really needed some work to bring it together in a Read more

Great write-up on the anime. I didn't even know that many people dislike it and hate the ending. I know its sometimes accused of manipulative writing but its still in my Top 10 list. Especially the graduation scene in the end is so sad and beautiful at the same time.

I’ve not watched this show admittedly (first became aware via Netflix), but just wanted to say this was a great read. I’m a bit of a sucker for perseverance stories even in the face of uncertainty, if not outright doom.

There aren’t enough takes that really explore what makes Angel Beats special. Nice work and glad to see someone repping this on AniTAY

Angel Beats! was my first exposure to Jun Maeda and Key, and it still holds a special place in my... heart. Not sure how much of it is nostalgia for one of the very first anime I watched, but I love it dearly, ending and all. Read more

Are we just not gonna talk about this? Iwasawa Masami from Angel Beats, stricken mute and paralyzed by cerebral hemorrhage in her life, and Sara Shane from Charlotte, stricken blind in her life. Both singer/songwriters whose want to heal with their words and voices. And both with the same voice actress, Sawashiro

Thanks, Dil. I had almost managed to suppress the memories of Kiss-shot’s prolonged insanity-laugh scene. Now that nightmare fuel is likely to keep me awake tonight. Blonde vampires... brrrrrrr.
