Angel Beats! review

So I finally saw all 13 episodes of Angel Beats!, and I loved it. So here is a review of it. Sorry about the typo’s in the review.

first thoughts- So when I first heard Angel Beats was getting an anime, I heard it was related to the works of Key, wich I absoulty adore, In was exited. So when April 2010 rolled around it was time Angel Beats started airing. I first thought Angel Beats! was going to be a romantic comedy with a lot of drama, boy was I wrong. The first episode starts as our protangist otonashi Yusuru wakes up in a strange world with the main heroine Yuri with a sniper rifle aiming for a girl who is Tenshi, the enemy, so this show is a life and death drama.

Story- The hero wakes up in a strange world where everyone has died. The story is a little hard for me to explain, because it’s like Umineko where  the plot gets confusing and goes over your head. But any way Angel has a great plot, not something you normally see in moe.

charachters- Even though there is a big cast of bishie boys (I love TK) there arem many cute girls, the most popular being Yui and Tenshi. The carahters are all loveable and the protanginst is pretty bishie and not hateable like mosy moe protaginsts are.

animation- The animation is so stellar I thought it was Kyoto Animation, but no it is PA System Works. Unlike most moe series which have bland animation, the animation in Angel is so stealar, they went all out to make the animation near perfect.

music- Again a great job here as well, some of the songs were bland and forgetable but there are some memroable. The oppeing theme My Soul Your Betas is performed by Lia, who did the theme songs for Air, Tomoyo After It’s A Wonderful Life, and Clannad After Story. This song is really beautiful, with a piano melody, In the beinging of the oppeing it shows Tenshi playing the piano. The ending song Brave Song byAoi Tada, is also a beautiful song. Unlike most moe anime theme songs are usually forgetable however Angel’s themes are very memorable

Voice acting-  Not the best but still great never the less. One thing to point out since TK usually speaks in english, his voice is done by  Michael Rivas, who I take it is Amercian who lives in Japan.

Overall- A really beautiful anime, that I highly recamend. Life and Death drama’s are the best, and this one is perfect in that genre. So if you are like me and are a big fan of the works of Key, you have to see this anime.
