Angel Beats! 04

Angel Beats!

Yui-nyan♥! She is surprisingly endearing, in a funny manner, after you watch her for a while. Not to mention she has a tendency to act cute and still tsukkomi at the same time.

Angel Beats!

Hinata decides to finally come out of the closet. Watch out, Otonashi!

Angel Beats!

Uh-oh, Tenshi is very annoyed. Very very annoyed.

Angel Beats!

Of course, this makes Yurippe very very happy. Ohohohohohohohoho~~ (evil laugh manner)

Taking a small breather it seems, as this episode of AB! was quite laidback and strangely devoid of info dumps unlike the last three. In fact, they even lampshaded themselves with Hinata, since they kinda hinted at him about to disappear as well only to disprove that right before the episode ended. Hurr.

I quite like the new OP. Yui is quite the energetic type and pretty genre-savvy as well in certain aspects, so it was surprisingly quite a blast to see her prance around and annoy Hinata. Will there be a relationship between the two in the future? Hmm… time will tell. So far it doesn’t seem to be any romantic relationships between anyone yet.

Another surprising thing is the introduction of the student council vice-president. I’d thought all along that Tenshi was the only one in it, but it seems I was mistaken. Perhaps the other members are actually mostly NPCs too, which probably explains why we haven’t really seem them around until now. Speaking of Tenshi, that annoyed arms-crossed look was rather LOL, given the fact she’s also wearing a sports jacket and acting as the team manager as well.

Next week on Angel Beats!, exams! Oh god, even in death we can’t escape exams? Next they are going to tell us that everyone needs to pay taxes or something like that in the school, hurr.

    Taxed till death and after. That already exists on earth. In a certain country called United States.

    Yurippe is becoming more and more like Haruhi every episode.

    And here I’ve hoped that Tenshi would go Homing Mode or something and have Yurippe’s punishment to be running 10 laps around the school naked while yelling “Green martians are chasing me”. And yeah, Tenshi’s arm-crossed look is…odd. On a more serious note, Otonashi seemed quite genre savvy on the whole “unfinished business” thing. Must be because that they only have 12 episodes.

    If the preview is right, then one thing is certain: They’re in HELL. Seriously, exams?

    I disregarded the idea of NPCs after ep 3 because I am sure that it was just a derogatory term that Yuri made for the people who don’t follow her.

    But Tenshi with coach clothing was lolz.

    SPOILER: In the end, Yurippe kills God, becomes God herself but loses all her memories, is then reincarnated as Haruhi Suzumiya.

    And thus, Angel Beats! Was a prequel all along.

    @Hordesman:

    But unlike Haruhi, Yurippe does not suck. Yuri has a brain whereas Haruhi doesn’t.

    Unfinished business you say? I wonder if Hinata would disappear if he did catch this ball?
    Also suicidal end of the performance by Yui-nyan was just hilarious (everything is fun until someone dies, then it gets hilarious)

    New OP isn’t bad but… but… I want Tenshi pianoing like there’s no tomorrow back!

    I expect they revert back to the usual opening since this is P.A works and not Kyo-Ani.
    Go and watch Nodame Cantabile to satisfy your piano antics just imagine Nodame as Tenshi.

    Hinata is a main character that shouldn’t disappear for the time being cause a sidekick should act a sidekick to Kyon rather Otonashi.

    Hmmm that is a point. Angel as God-Human interface?

    Two last images and the text below them made me giggle. lol.

    Bad episode was horrible. Opening is fine though.

    she cosplays a demon a bit – with pseudo-horns on the piggyytails and black spade-ended tail, no less!

    Reminds me of Enta from Disgaea.

    I dunno Kurogane, “cute but endearing” doesn’t do it for me in this case. She’s very reminiscent of Segawa Izumi from Hayate, except kicked up a notch. Most of the time that kind of character just gets on my nerves. I don’t know why. I just felt like punting her like a football, and the handle used for this thread (and probably all angel beats! threads from now on) indicates that I think.

    Still, this was probably my favorite episode so far.
