Well remember this is a whole new original series thats being built from the ground up with no real source material to draw from. Maybe putting it at 13 episodes is the way they're testing the waters.

That is why I'm pointing out that comparing an original series to a long light novel adaptation does not give either justice.

I'm not sure if it's totally fair to compare the two, but I'm basically with this.

And to the original question asker, don't forget that Angel Beats isn't just a 13 ep anime, it's also two manga and a light novel. Unlike usual, each isn't just another person's interpretation of one main source; the anime, manga, and novels all complement each other, and Maeda says the best way to get the most out of Angel Beats is to indulge in all three media branches. As a multimedia project, they're doing a little bit of everything, not mastering at everything. You either master one thing, or just be pretty good at a lot of things. Angel Beats is just dipping toes into many forms of storytelling.

I was thinking that the SSS installed that after taking the room over.

Any idea why the principal hasn't taken the office back?

Because they have guns and there's a big hammer at the door, perhaps.

In ep5, the part where Yui sings to the crowd, is sung by Yui's seiyuu?

I heard someone mentioned before that the song was sung by a different Seiyuu. Checked anime news network and the song was sung by "LiSA", while Yui's VA is Eri Kitamura

Reference from Episode 5 to Episode 1

was Tenshi's motive in Episode 5 the same as in Episode 1?. Where in Episode 1, it seems the wants to stop the band from playing any further. While in Episode 5, she just wants to buy dinner.

Yes, that's why the SSS didn't stop her. In episode 1 she was planning to stop the guerrilla concert as part of her duties as student counsel president, whereas in episode 5 she was relieved of those duties and simply wanted to buy something to eat.

so if the students are dead high school students, then what about the teachers?

one more question, if they are already dead why do they need sleep, eat, etc?

I believe the teachers have been stated as being NPCs, like the majority of the students.
Also the mechanics of the afterlife are not necessarily set in stone, so any writer can decide whether it is freedom from physical needs or a simulation of life. So really, it's because the writer wanted them to.

If they based it on the standard MMO, all other NPCs would turn hostile and attack you until you died. Afterward, they'd pretend nothing happened.

I think they just see them more as innocents, so want to not hurt them or change the way they view the world.

Why do the students buy their meal tickets at night and holding it in their hands instead of putting it into their pockets?

I guess because they don't want to keep it and want to let them fly all over the place. They didn't even pick them up after the concert after all
