Sorry, minor spoilers ahead. Names have been left out, but you’ll likely know what I’m talking about within moments of the start of the episode.
AAAAAHHH, FUCK YOU ANGEL BEATS! YOU FINALLY FLESH OUT A CHARACTER, JUST TO KILL THEM?!?! YOU GOT-DAMNED (sic) BASTARDS!
Still love the sight gags; this show is an expert-level emotional manipulator, much like my number-one show ever: Mongolian Chop Squad. If I’m not smiling one moment,
I’m crying the next. Okay, I’m not literally crying, but this show makes me very sad when I’m not laughing my ass off. And I love shows that can do that. In this episode, Angel Beats! Did it very well. It’s amazing; we get to hear how each of these characters died, but it isn’t until they are reincarnated that the real emotions come out. A bit ironic.
Ugh, I have a soft spot for characters that end up dying. Maes Hughes was my first, and to this day he’s my favorite character in anime. This death isn’t quite as potent, but I think she’ll make my favorite characters list, despite only getting a single episode of screen time. What can I say; I’m a sucker for a sob story. I also seem to have a thing for musically-inclined characters. K-On is probably going to chew me up and spit me out some day…
Is this what the rest of the series is going to be? Will someone fulfill themselves every episode now? Will we lose someone from now on? Like a train wreck, I don’t want to see something so horrible, but I can’t look away.
