So for the elder readers, does anyone remember an old show called Party of Five? I never watched it, but all I remember about it was it featured ridiculously hot girls and a lot of emo situations. Uh… not that I’m saying Angel Beats is anything like that.
Eh… what can I say. I loved the middle of the episode when we got to see Yuri reject her paradise. I didn’t particularly like the beginning or end. So what does that make this? A stale ice cream sandwich?
I wonder if Jun Maeda was influenced by Persona 4, because first we see a Naoto clone (named Naoi) and now we get evil shadows that consume people.
Apparently the only thing more dangerous than being a lead singer for GirlDeMo might be drumming for Spinal Tap.
This episode featured the one time where I thought the humor was really out of place (everyone reacting to Shiina talking), but besides that it may have been the best episode yet. Which is somewhat surprising, because most of the episode focused on revealing a second act to Otonashi’s life less lived.
Honestly, I haven’t really dug this evil-Tenshi arc. I liked the story better when it was more focused on revealing clues about the world and how people got there. The evil-Tenshi thing? Eh, feels a little too shounen for me. Me and clone stories, we don’t mix well.
I contemplated bundling the episode 7 and 8 posts together, since nothing major really happens in episode 7, except for the reveal to episode 8, but I haven’t bundled any posts yet, so what the hell. Might as well keep things going as is. Thankfully, I should be finally caught up and current by the next episode though.
