This is probably where the problem arose when Maeda was worried over content not being put in the anime. Though the light novel version/ manga would cover it.

Ah, but there's always potential for flashbacks. And we all know the survival rate for those...

Those blades remind me of something.

This series makes me question the same thing as in Bleach (hopefully someone can explain this to me):

Since the setting is in the afterlife, if someone dies, where do they go? To a second afterlife? cuz the afterlife is already for dead people, so then you kill a dead person and they become more dead , or is it like you kill a person and THEN they're dead for real and their existance dissappears forever.

Since they seem to be using a somewhat Christian setting (Angels, fighting God, etc), I'd imagine if they "died", they'd have their existence completely obliterated.

Or maybe they just get resurrected again. Like Valhalla.
My theory is that they're immortal (*cough* technically speaking) but can still get incapacitated by injuries until they regenerate at some undisclosed time.
The wikipedia page says:

I believe the main conflict and theme of the show is going to be coming to terms with their death and ultimately, learning to let it go. It's about moving on and acceptance.
Obviously, the members of the SSS do not believe in acceptance, hence their ongoing war.

Which does raise a question. If you can't die, and the enemy can't die, and you can't become alive again, then what's the point of fighting?
Probably because it's better then doing nothing about it.

They'll have injuries and death in heaven as well, because if they didn't, there would be no point in having fights with guns.

In Angel Beats, the characters from Key stopped relying on magical orbs and miracles and started beating others up in heaven. I hope Nagisa from Clannad joins the team and help them as well. And also Fuuko, with her magical star power.

When they die again, they go to Third Heaven, where Haruhi rules supreme, lol.

I think we need more angels, she's pretty outnumbered?

3rd heaven, with haruhi? More like 1st hell.

Yeah if it's like that then this series will have Haibane Renmei vibes which ain't a bad thing.

Miyuki Sawashiro. Sweet. I love her recent work as Ayane in Kimi ni Todoke and Celty in Durarara.

And Emiri Katou. Kagami and Hideyoshi are always good in my book.

I love Miyuki Sawashiro. She's quickly becoming one of my favorite female VA's. She was great as a dude (Kurenai). Canaan was great as well. Seems like she'll be in Arakawa under the Bridge as well.

Trailer looked great. Staff list is good. Interesting to see Key go away from KyoAni for this. PA Works has done good work so far.... (I loved true tears even though I did like Noe.)

I'd like to see Sawashiro Miyuki and Katou Emiri higher up the cast list, but Kamiya Hiroshi and Hanazawa Kana are two of my favorites, anyway.
