Judging from that shot in ep 3, I believe so. Maybe it's two Angels living in harmony together despite being in the same time continuum.

Harmonics is clearly Multiform/Shadow Clone. She probably got tired of Yuri's diversionary tactics, and decided to make a way to be in two places at once.

maybe...But I don't see Tenshi rambling about what's her purpose, describing her hate of her life (yet) and becoming megalomanic over it. That's why she's no Smith.

A Request to dear Tenshi

I want to you to appear and talk more times.
Nowadays I am taken up with other attractive characters , Yui, T.K. and so on, though I devoted myself only to you in Episode 1.

Some more thoughts pointing to Angel being an android, or perhaps even a cyborg who is just following a programming:

- no reaction to being wounded (no pain/fear/anger etc.)
- shows no emotions
- only reacts, e.g. only puts up shield after she is hit, not before
- only answers questions (like in the beginning where Otonashi asked her), doesn't talk by herself

Tenshi talks by herself. That line in episode 3 about her being the "bad guy". And in episode 4 too, when she confronts Hinata's team.

The same can be said for Yuki Nagato D:

For the react thing, she uses delay on Yuri before Yuri manages to stab her.

Rememebering that many "0" and "1" appear when Tenshi protects herself from the shot done by Otonashi in Episode 1,
http://dl8.getuploader.com/g/8%7Csai...0231597815.gif

May I interpret this scene as a hint that she makes her guard skills using her computer?

I mean while I might not necessarily like this to be a computer simulation deal, the fact that Tenshi's abilities work that way hardly seems to be just for show, cause if it was it would be like the dumbest intentional mislead ever.

I'd say that is just one more thing pointing to her being an android.

When's the last time you've seen an android do that?

So we have a name: Tachibana Kanade.

Honestly, the more I see Kanade / Tenshi, the more I prefer her over Yurippe.

Seems to cut a lonely figure, even more so now that she's lost her student president position...

Edit: Can't wait for next week's episode. The replacement president seems to prefer iron-fisted measures unlike Kanade, who seems to fight only when the SSS go overboard.

Well with episode 5 it now throws out the biggest question out there about Kanade, aside from her humanity (which is sort of confirmed I guess):

What exactly is she fighting for?

I know we really don't know a lot about her right now but after the supports of her being an Angel gets diminished with every episode it pulls into question the reason she goes against the SSS despite being self-aware. It might actually simply be because she was the student council president, but perhaps she truly believes in trimming down and controlling the group? At the moment it would seem she wants to follow the rules of their world and exact those rules on anyone who rebels against it, but even then we're not exactly sure what those rules are besides being the usual rules in a school.

If she DOES truly believe in what she is doing, by being a enforcer of sorts, then it goes to prove that not everyone who becomes self-aware "rebels" against the system, so to speak. Perhaps she really believes that the system works or is "right" while Yuri is "wrong" which of course leads to a tricky gray area of sorts. It might be that her successor as president might also be self-aware and share some similarities with her.

What's interesting now is what she chooses to do as a regular student.

She stops dealing with SSS after she is fired so of course she is doing it simply because its her job as a student council president

Well we don't know that for sure.... yet. Actually it would be more interesting if she continues to be against the SSS activities, since the Yuri vs. Kanade thing seems to be one of the backbones of the story.

This looks like the potential answer to 'why doesn't Tenshi disappear if she's one of them'. Because she's not REALLY working to elilminate the SSS and instead letting them do as they please within certain limits, she's not fulfilling her role, and won't disappear.

Tenshi (Kanade) is the best in Angel Beats.
