I wonder when the next popularity poll's going to be. I hope TK doesn't get such a ridiculous amount of votes this time seeing as he's just a vaguely amusing gimmick joke character and doesn't really deserve to compete with Otonashi, Yuri, Yui, etc... that is, people that are actual characters.

Seems like Hinata create the Tsundere from the women around him. Yuri use to be the one attacking him. Now it is Yui. And in the prenovel the ninja girl use to attack him when he was defending Yuri.

Methinks Hinata is the Male Punching Bag that always seems to work itself into Maeda's more recent works, for comedic effect. There was Masato in Little Busters!, then Sunohara in Clannad, and now Hinata. At least Hinata isn't afraid to fight back.

I agree, I mean he's an amusing character , but so is Shiina, and Noda so I don't get the massive popularity.

Just realise that they would be more like Yandere if taking out of AB context

Looks like with the news that TK doesn't actually know english his votes have slipped

The count is now a definitive lead of 1.66M vs 1.48M.

Think of it like I did. It'll help... Hopefully.

Spoiler for Differences I can think of:


That's about it. A lot of their characters are similar other then those I can get off the top of my head.... But I wouldn't mind it in the least to see Naoi in a seifuku.


I recently thought this up but... Isn't Noda a bit of yandere? He is obsessive-love about Yurippe and he tends to be destructive or obstructive about it to the point it actually harms himself others.

xD Noda is yandere? Thoughts? I'm pointing that out to see if it holds water. xD

TK has 1.48 million and almost everyone else except Kanade got in the hundreds?

what

I mean, I could sort of understand it with the poll taken after the first episode or whatever because the show was new and the characters hadn't been given much attention or focus so they were all on equaler footing, but now that we're mostly done with the series... I guess Japan really does just love one-note joke characters that show up for five seconds per episode that much. LOL he speaks English and is soooo zany XD XD XD TK 4ever

i stopped watching angel beats after episode 3 due to classes and all i can say is after watching episodes 4 to 10 tonight, it's easily beats most, if not almost all, of the anime that have been airing the past year for me. i absolutely love the subplot twists that took place in every episode. it doesn't get boring at all.

and i have to say 13 episodes does not give this anime justice. if there is a second season in the works depending on how this ends, then i'm all for it. but if they're considering continuing this through mangas, light novels, or even a VN, i hope there are some kind translators willing to put their free time translating.

I'm hoping for Track Zero to get animated. It's a pretty awesome story as well, although I guess most of the mystery will have been taken out already.

Here is what I think of the series so far. I doubt it will change my opinion when it finishes.

Spoiler for preview and possible spoilers:

They don't actually. They explained in episode one that they don't actually know what happens to them when they disappear. The whole barnacle thing was just a joke. We know that Yuri stayed to rebel because she hates God and the other characters motivations are revealed in the prequel. or in the episodes.
Quote:
And how did they find the means to make all those weapon manufacture facilities?
Basically if you remember something well enough then you can make it. Chaa (that bearded guy in episode 2) managed to make guns out of thin air in the prequel. It's most likely explained in more detail in the prequel. Unfortunately the translation has only gotten halfway there.

Quote:
And what’s stopping them from leaving the school? Are there boundaries in this world?
Good question actually. Maybe it's explained in the prequel.

Quote:
And who appoints the Angel? Why did she accept the role? Why did she allow them to make all those military facilities before going there to destroy them? Why doesn’t she recognize them in the class although she is fighting them every day? How was she replaced? All these are never told, never shown, and the producers hoped nobody would care asking. Well, hello, I do and we clearly see that with all this randomness…
Spoiler for future revelations:


Even if all the above wasn't true i fail to see why they would have to answer all that at the start. Those could've simply been revelations later on.

Yes, many of those questions are in the other media...

remember this is a MIXED MEDIA project, to get maximum enjoyment out of the whole franchise you should read/watch everything.

Although I think that the anime itself is relatively self contained.

I've watched enough anime surely, but still feels TK is just a meh character.

Haha. Besides the error about the studio (It's P.A. Works) and stuff Haak addressed, that's a pretty funny review. I agree with a lot of it too.

I would have to disagree with the idea that it's trying to rip off Haruhi or Bakemonogatari. It has very little in common with Haruhi besides the fact that Yuri is somewhat similar to her but not very much. And I don't see how it's anything like Bakemonogatari. The style of comedy and the plot is completely different. And whilst I like Bakemonogatari more, in terms of pure comedy Angel Beats made me laugh a lot more and harder too.

Yea, you have a point there too. Though I really haven't seen enough of Bakemonogatari to know.
