updated their review of Angel Beats!
I'd like to start by describing what type of show Angel Beats! is, what genre it falls under, and the demographic most likely to enjoy watching.

Glad you enjoyed the review. Thank you. ^^ And KnK as in Kara no Kyoukai? To be perfectly honest with you, I don't really remember much about it. I must have rated it right after watching it, but I haven't seen it since then... I might rate it higher or lower if I rewatched it. But it looks to be a 3/5 -- closer to liking it than disliking it. The style was pretty good though, especially background artwork.
