Alright, Angel Beats. People have been raving about this anime for a while so I figured I would give it a try. To be honest I was kind of dissapointed, the dialouge was cheap and it felt contrived, most of the characters were either devices to get the story moving along or punch lines- and bad ones at that. Sure there are some emotional moments and some characters get a background that make them feel real- but at what cost? Now all that being said, there were definetly a few good points such as the ending. I CRIED at the ending. flat out cried, tissues and all. The animation was also pretty great, and the opening theme was absolutely beautiful audio and visual. So overall I'll give it a generous 7. I suggest you stream it rather than buy it, it's not really worth a second watch.
