Could be? They did FMP TSR so you'd think they could handle actions scenes.

I'm more interested in getting Angel's perspective on the situation. Since we're seeing this play out like Otonashi, I'm feeling like I was dropped in the middle of something which was prob intended.

Just finished watching episode 1. Overall, it was fairly enjoyable but I can see the pacing issues already and the cast seems pretty big judging from this episode. The atmosphere is gorgeous though, I love the scenery and the lighting effects, the animation was done pretty well from what I could see. The reason I see pacing issues though is because they seem to throw a lot at you too quickly and there isn't much time to swallow all of it, but considering the 13 episode count, it was inevitable.

I can't say much about the secondary characters yet since this is only the introductory phase but they all seem pretty interesting except Noda, but that's a matter of opinion because I just don't like his particular type of character. But I will say this, Otonashi and Yuri are fairly entertaining from the little that I got to see in this episode. Yuri's personality is a little over-the-top but that doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing either, I guess it's a personal preference type of thing here too.

Otonashi seems like a very reasonable male lead and his past might be a focus point for the plot as much as the fight against Tenshi. I enjoyed the episode but there isn't much I can really say about it. Nothing really stands out so I'll just have to wait for it to pick up.

...Ha! Epi01 introduced properly maybe half of the casts. I thought it was pretty funny until the nonsense about fighting and band showed up. Good thing it's supposed to be full Key style later.

PS. Otonashi = 音無 = no voice, which is generally the case for virtual novels main characters. =D

I'm guessing there's a reason for them to introduce most of the cast this quickly. There might be some heavy character development if Jun Maeda sticks to his guns. At least I hope so.

As for Otonashi, that's a pretty clever name Oh Maeda, you sly devil you

I don't know, Harumi Sakurai is doing a pretty good job so far. Let's give her another couple of episodes just to get a feel for her.

Well some of it is actually translated somewhat correct but most of it is just a waste of time.

I thought the 2nd Season of K-ON would be the most scrutinized anime this season, but looks like Angel Beats is going to be right up there with it.

I know the first episode doesn't make a series, but based solely on episode 1, I didn't like it that much. The story, characters and voice acting didn't really catch my attention. Might get better once I understand what's going on so let's see what episode 2 has to offer.

The worst thing with this show IMO is the INSANE hype, which is partly of Jun Maeda's own bringing.

I still wish the show the best, but at this point in his career, Maeda might be almost trying too hard. While his earlier works were more subdued affairs that didn't quite have the hype this show has.

Yurippe... To think she had such a birth defect... Definitely going to be a sob story over this problem, right?

In the second half of the page, a comparison on holding sniper rifles.

I'm not into her yet, but I could have said that about Aaya in the first couple of eps of Haruhi, too, so I'll give her time. I must admit, however, that with Kamiyan there, I really wanted to hear Chiwa.

Ep1 didn't blow me away, but it feels as if it has potential depth and will develop.

I'm rather confused with this first episode as nothing makes sense.
Spoiler:


Oh well, I haven't seen any anime recently that has a big "wtf" factor so this anime might actually be entertaining and make sense down along the long, at least I hope.

Oh yeah, I'm really digging the song in the middle of the anime.

IMO I would be willing to bet the vast majority of the QQ'ers are suffering from "Herp derp I fell for the hype" syndrome where it's bad for not living up to godly expectations. The story so far obviously left room for more episodes to fill things in, so to try and judge it just based on what was in this episode is jumping the gun.

I liked the first episode sure it didn't blow my mind but it wasn't bad, it was enjoyable. We've only gotten a glimpse of the character in the first ep and they'll be developed for sure.

I honestly can't blame Maeda for hyping this show, it's the first time he's doing something in this genre. I also don't believe he would say that his show was bad, any creator/writer/producer would hype their show because they want people to watch it, I think that much is obvious. I just think the viewers themselves set their expectations too high which is why people seem to be overreacting.

I myself can't really say whether or not Maeda is "trying too hard" yet considering the fact that we've only seen one episode. Let him tell his story and then we can pass judgment.

Likewise, I feel the same way. And just going by history, I'll have faith in Maeda until the end (I.e. - Unless this series devolves rather than develops.)

Watched Episode 1.

So, great visuals, great audio, and....what did I just watch there? X_X

I was going to come back from blogging vacation just for this show. Now, I'm having second thoughts.

So much QQ in this thread, yet I was completely blown away.

The visuals, the atmosphere, the music.... :O. Such an amazing insert song right off the bat. If this series gets any better and keeps these production values I think we may have a classic in our hands :O.
