Angel Beats! Episode 1
April 17, 2010 § Leave a comment
In a world after death, angels fight for their fate and their future. Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi, the chairperson of the student council for the world after death, battles against the SSS members. SSS members utilize armed weaponry to battle it out against the angels harnessing supernatural powers.
So, I’ve just seen episode one and I’m confused on what’s going on with the anime.
I only picked this up due to the unique synopsis–and the good art style as well as the quality. Plus, I’m looking for anime (and manga) that are set in school.
The first episode was good but I don’t really have much to say about it since I’m really confused on what’s going on.
So, the SSS are fighting against “Tenshi” (an angel?), the Tenshi looks like a frail little girl (the silver hair and blank expression makes me want to glomp her) but despite their advantage in number, this “Tenshi” is far stronger.
The members of SSS are a lively bunch and they really made me laugh, especially when Yuri (the leader of SSS) introduces everyone to Otonashi.
“He’s Hinata-kun. As you can see, he’s quite lax, but he’ll do what’s necessary at times.”
“He’s Ooyama-kun. His lack of character is his defining characteristic.”
“Everyone calls him T.K. He’s a mystery man. No one knows his real name.”
(Otonashi) “Are you sure about keeping someone like that as an ally?”
“The one who’s always lifting his glasses to speak intelligently is Takamatsu-kun. He’s actually an idiot.”
“The one who keeps saying ‘how unwise’ is Shiina-san.”
Those made me laugh like hell. 😀
So, the SSS are a colourful bunch and they even have a band called GDM–Girls Dead Monster, their song on the first episode was nice listening to! I kept replaying it, I wonder if there’d be a full version of it soon. 😀
As for Otonashi (the main hero), he has lost his memories and they say that it was “usual” for some the new ones to lose their memories but they’d get it back sooner or later. The amnesia is caused by being killed due to an accident in our world. So, that’s one reason that’s making me stick to this anime since I’m such a curious being, I can’t just ignore his past.
Anyhoo~ I’m surprised I’m quite lax on this and am not being impatient for the next episode. But then again… It must be because I’m currently watching 11 different anime that my focus is scattered. 😛
