Angel Beats: Overall Review

I always thought that Angel Beats was based from a game. I probably misread it somewhere. Maybe it’s because if I read the word Key, I quickly assume that it’s from a game.

Jun Maeda, creator of Clannad, Kanon and Air  and a part of the Key team, is the one who created the story of Angel Beats. He’s a a freakin’ genius and quite skilled in making stories that make us cry.

I’d say this anime is one hell of a hit. The animation is spot-on, thanks to P.A. Works and Aniplex for this. High quality indeed. ( Even better if you buy the DVDs. )  The comedy and seriousness are equally balanced,  no dull moments, steady character growths ( for everyone ) and the plot is executed nicely that it isn’t dragging or boring at all.

Na-Ga is another member of the Key team who was nominated by Jun Maeda to do the job of creating the character designs of Angel Beats. He’s also responsible for designing the characters from Little Busters! Maeda personally requested that Yuri’s image should have a headband, based on Yukiko Amagi’s character from Persona 4. ( It’s his favorite character lol ).

I’m probably praising this anime too much, right?  Ha-ha! I don’t care. I loved it. Angel Beats taught me more about life. And the main theme of the story is acceptance to ones own life. WELL DONE, JUN MAEDA!!

This anime is definitely worth watching again. Thank you Angel Beats!
