Angel Beats! - Novel Discussion
 
Welcome to the Angel Beats! Novel Discussion thread.

Here's a quick blurb from Wikipedia about the Angel Beats! Novels:
Quote:

A series of seven illustrated short stories written by Jun Maeda and drawn by GotoP entitled Angel Beats! Track Zero were serialized between the November 2009 and May 2010 issues of ASCII Media Works's Dengeki G's Magazine.[10] The main character of the stories is Hinata, and is a prequel to Angel Beats!, which tells the story of how the SSS was formed. A special extra chapter focusing on Girls Dead Monster was published in the sixth volume of Dengeki G's Festival! Deluxe on March 29, 2010. The chapter titles for the stories are taken from song titles from various musical artists. The first chapter, "Two Person Rocket" (二人のロケット, Futari no Rocket?), was posed online with illustrations by ASCII Media Works.[11]

And here is the link to Chapter one: http://subsmith.wordpress.com/2010/0...ocket-for-two/

Much thanks to subsmith, hopefully someone will do the rest. Its pretty funny, and I actually like Yuri and Hinata's interaction alot. Its great getting to know more about the guy. A very funny and yet intriguing first chapter a microcosm of the show itself in some ways.

Someone is translating the rest of the chapters and posting them here. They have 2 and 3 so far.

These are awesome thank you! I will have to email him thanks as well.

Man these chapters keep getting better. The double translations makes certain passages a tad confusing but its interesting to see how it all started. Yuri is getting on my nerves more and more, Tenshi gets more interesting as a character, and I have a lot more respect for Hinata now, cool guy.

Just finished reading all seven chapters (and will start on the Girls Dead Monster one next) - being trilingual has its advantages :P

There's an extra Girls Dead Monster light novel chapter as well as the other 6 chapters of the prequel.

Didn't read pass ch 4 yet.

But if your speculation is right, the future Tenshi(s) would be awesome then. Just image how the order would then be kept in this school with that pair :heh:

Eleutheria 2010-05-03 12:59

Oh yes, and

Spoiler:


I only skimmed the Girl Dead Monster chapter, I think it was mostly fluff with little relevance to the main plot.

Okay, but which magazine, and what volume? I've been collecting all the Denki G's with the novel in it. But, I've never heard anything about the Girls Dead Monster chapter.

Marcus H. 2010-05-04 03:01

Oh, thanks for the links for the translated novel chapters. Looking forward to the rest of Track Zero.

Oh, so novel is being translated. Gonna definitely read it sometime soon.

Leo Keichi 2010-05-05 09:55

I've read the first four chapters. Hm, as time goes by, I'm starting to sympathize with Tenshi more and more.

Oh, the envy. But I'll get there someday as well, I hope.

Just caught up with the latest translated chapter (4). So Chaa is actually a high schooler too, I thought he was way older than the others :heh:

It's interesting to see how the SSS was founded. These chapters certainly didn't change my mind about Yuri, she acts too much like a bitch for my tastes. Though I can see she's got some good sides to her. She and Hinata sure jumped to conclusions fast about Kanade, but it's good to see they actually tried to communicate with her at first, I'm curious to see how that discussion in her room will turn out. I wish I could sniff Tenshi's pajamas... What am I saying? That part was a bit weird.

dark998 2010-05-07 03:08

I want to see Kanade in her pajamas...

maplehurry 2010-05-08 22:15

Couldn't get to there for some reason.. :s

Knightrunner 2010-05-10 04:33

Same here, I read all the chapters and she definetly sounds almost like haruhi. In the anime though I get a different vibe from her though like she became nicer or something. She still carrry that same resentment but I didn't think she was that extreme before.

Klashikari 2010-05-10 05:27

The most logical conclusion to this is that Yuri was still boiling down after what happened before she died.
Being all alone for years most likely jaded her before dying, then hanging around with "comrades" warmed her up.

The evident part is that her resentment is vastly toned down, like in the novel, she is quite angry like half of the time when a touchy subject is brought to the table. The fact she wasn't really fancying random stuff in the novel indicates clearly she was quite obsessed in finding a lead and beating "something to pulp".

I wouldn't be surprised if her development in the novel will lead by the end of it, her current state of mind in the anime. (Fun fact is that, if the whole "Tenshi is human" popped right in the novel, she would definitely go panzer, unlike in her anime period).
