Otonashi main image

Unlike the other members of the SSS, Otonashi enters life-after-death without memories of his past, how he died, or even his full name. Even without a sense of self, Otonashi is a caring person who would sacrifice his own happiness for that of another.

Though Yuri and the others are dead-set against Tenshi, Otonashi is intrigued about her and the role that she plays in their world.

*sigh* I really liked his character until the ending of Angel Beats. His development and friendship with Yuri and Hinata went out the window and he became a selfish prick wanting some girl who he shouldn't even care about to stay behind without her opinion. But it's okay, because... No wait, there was NOTHING that justified him in that fucking ending! Oh well, at least he was likable during the show until he became an unlikable and selfish prick.

If more people, including me, had Otonashi as a role-model. I could really rethink myopinion that humans are demos

Otonashi's ultimate and everlasting conviction to do all that he can to help others, almost always costing him his own personal happiness and his very life, didn't just make me literally bawl for a good 3 minutes, it penetrated my mind and really made me rethink things. His altruism was transcendent, and he has made me want to be a better person.

His backstory was honestly sadder than the ending if you ask me. Not saying that the ending was tame though.

Just a generally solid straight man character with a heartwrenching backstory.Excuse the distasteful pun.
