I havent said that, but........

Yes, yes she should. You have to let things go, but like you said, it will take time. It has to happen at some point though.

You know what would make things interesting, if Naoi is doing everything to be the right-hand of god. In a way, being the complete opposite of Yuri who wants to rebel against god. Both of them willing to do whatever it takes to reach that point.

The concept of NPC's is still not to be treated like a general aspect.

yuri is just a copy of haruhi, and haruhi is much more intelligent than yuri.

I'd think the opposite, Haruhi isn't the type who thinks deeply about actions, whereas Yuri is like this.

Can we just drop the obnoxious and nonsensical comparison between AB and Haruhi, for goodness' sake?
Not only both franchise has little to no common point, but both heroines are sharply different.

Haruhi is not the origin of "possibly bossy leader girl" in anime history you know, so isn't Yuki Nagato regarding Machine/Kuudere type. And even if you count that "general demeanor", backstory, decisions and emotions are nowhere similar between the said characters.

And this is an irritating ad nauseam offtopic, which will just be another good reason to perform a clean up.

So pretty much almost all of the main cast is a bunch of tools who can't make decisions or come up with anything for themselves but rather just listen to orders? Otonashi and Yurripe are the only ones actually showing a slight bit of intellect and Yurippe doesn't think things through enough. Did she ever bother checking the vice president and what he's like before she got Kanade fired? I will admit that I like the show for trying to show a gray area and that the main character isn't automatically on the side of the good guys.

The objective was unlikely to have another Student Council President to face off (though it is a natural aftermath of their actions). It was solely based on the premise that Kanade is an Angel and that being the closest to god would be their primary target in order to have a lead to God.
For them, before this portion of the story, there was no stronger "enemy" than Kanade, and considering how things were going, it is very unlikely that Nao was anything outstanding before being promoted as the president.

They most likely thought of Naoto as an NPC. I'm going to actually go and predict that Kanade will not side with the SSS, rather she would try to clear her name.

How do you know he's emotionally driven? I don't mean to doubt you, but we haven't seen much of his character, right?
It's just an impression I had.
Even though the fact that he didn't attack the night of the concert (probably he was still preparing his army), but waited for the dinner time, when the SSS would be the at their weakest (while at the concert time they were fully loaded and ready to fight) maybe denotes some brain.
Not enought to prepare a trap instead of running inside without anything to protect himself and his army, though... XD

Again something that they've never bothered to check. Hell they hadn't even bothered to check up on her name. We're given the impression that they've been going against Tenshi for awhile now and pretty much NOBODY KNOWS HER NAME. Intelligence is important in any army, rebellion, or armed service. It's just mindblowing that they haven't looked into the whole thing like her second in command. So again they're acting like tools of Yurippe as shown at the end when Otonashi suggests trying to figure out who she is.

Yep, they're pretty damned incompetent. It's also easier to hurt someone you don't know. A nameless unfeelng machine, you can easily justify shooting at. But if you find out she's another person that might just be like you and she feels pain from what you do, it all changes.

HAH. Im sorry but if Haruhi ever bothered to use her brain cells for more than 10 minutes, she would be realizing why she is wasting her days away on a small time SOS club and would have gone higurashi by now.

They are dead people in a freaking highschool where they are told nothing and must figure out everything by trial and error. Give them a break. I doubt you would even want to be close to a girl who held the power to hack and slash you over and over and wouldn't stop even if you shot her. Its so much easier to talk crap when you have the benefit of retrospective, not to mention a higher perspective. Yuri does a pretty good job of leading a nonsensical batch of random teens with attitudes.

@the guy who was asking about the novel, it's not that this series is based off a novel or a manga or anything. The novel bit just provides further info that couldn't be included in the anime. Here's the link to first chapter, which suffices for the comment I made about the scene you were discussing :
http://subsmith.wordpress.com/2010/0...ocket-for-two/

And you guys should stop before klashikari goes on a rampage, seriously.

Um... no, Haruhi is actually a great thinker. that part when she tells Kyon her real dilemma in the first series should've told you that she's more than what is externally happening.

Anyway, enough of Haruhi and more of Angel Beats!:

I'd honestly say that there may be something that we do not know about Yuri at this point, rewatching the other episodes seem to point to us that all that she says aren't exactly the truth, but it may very well be just her own interpretation, although there maybe strands of the truth in her interpretation.

Wow i didn't think someone else would kick this debate back up. We seriously need to drop this comparison argument before Klashkari bites.
