Angel Beats Anime Review

If you are looking for a show that is both touching and downright hilarious, look no further. This Japanese anime is a wonderful, short romp through the lives of a handful of students attending a school in the afterlife where you can never die; the call themselves the 'Afterlife Battlefront'.

The story begins with a young man named Otonashi Yuzuru who suddenly awakens to find himself lying on the ground next to a girl with a sniper rifle. Introducing herself as Nakamura Yuri, She casually informs him that he is now dead and has arrived in the after-life, going on even further to state that it is impossible to die now. Lacking his memory temporarily and unable to recall dying, Otonashi disbelieves this and questions her concerning the sniper rifle and, after being informed that she is the leader of the Afterlife Battlefront, decides that he should find company that is more sane than this Yuri. After inquiring about the sniper rifle and learning that the Afterlife Battlefront is at war with the student body president whom they call Angel, Otonashi decides to go meet this 'Angel'.The meeting does not end well though as, after he asks Angel to prove that there is no death in this afterlife, she runs him through the heart.

Otonashi wakes up in the schools infirmary completely disoriented and realizes he is not dreaming at the sight of his clothing which is drenched in his own blood (although he himself is fine). As soon as he awakens however he is confronted by a halberd wielding student named Noda who 'punishes' him for turning Yuri down for her earlier offer. Otonashi again reawakens and makes his way to the Afterlife Battlefront headquarters with some difficulty. There he joins the team and thus begins a series of encounters with Angel. In addition to the Battlefront and Angel, the school is populated with 'NPC's' or 'Non-Player Characters'. These students fill the classrooms and create the school atmosphere, but they lack a soul and individual identity. The Battlefront recognizes this and continues striving to counter this throughout the series by misbehaving, breaking rules, and generally being uncooperative and out of character for a typical student. Any person who begins acting like a normal student and leading a regular life, soon vanishes without a trace. This is a great concern as many of the Battlefront members believe it possible to get an undesirable reincarnation. Therefore they prefer to remain in the Afterlife rather than moving on.

Otonashi gradually begins to piece together what is really happening and then, with the help of a few friends and he slowly begins to impact the leaves of each member of the Afterlife Battlefront. The rest of the plot follows him about as he explores the limitations of the afterlife with his newly found friends.
