Dunno about everyone else. But he's got one of the coolest voices in the anime universe. When you hear voices like his pop up in anime, the one thought that comes to mind is "Damn, he's a man's man. A badass!" And you're hearing this from a straight dude.

Badass voice actors

1. Keiji Fujiwara - He can go from being that caring, gentle father to a psychotic yet super masculine killer.

2. Midorikawa - Already mentioned. He'd be anime version of Clint Eastwood. Gets the mission accomplished no questions asked.

3. Toshihiko Seki (Iruka sensei from Naruto) - If there's any voice type that's ideal for projecting into a crowd while also getting the ladies' attention, it's his!

4. Toru Ohkawa (Roy Mustang in FMA Brotherhood) - Similar to #3. His voice is ideal for playing the role of the calm, cool guy

Note that these are just the badass voice styles. The number of goofy, awkward protagonist voice actors are countless.

And they really messed up here, where they pretty much 'told' us that Naoki joined and 'shown' us how the SSS came to terms with Kanade, when it should've been the other way around!

I mean seriously, Kanada was already working together with them in the last episode, so we can understand that her being part of the group will be the next logical step. But Naoki? THAT needed some explaining as to why he did a complete 180 (for crying out loud, a lot of people already thought he disappeared!). It boggles the mind why the writers have shown that SSS are still wary of Kanade even though they worked together already, yet completely skipped over Naoki's joining altogether when his last interaction with the SSS was of complete confrontation!
yeah, no one seems pissed off at Naoki for what he did to them in the previous episode, unless they're really THAT casual of being brutally "murdered"....

Regarding Naoi in this episode, it's pretty much explained with how much he admires Otanoshi after the events that taken place at the end of last weeks episode, and that he wants to work alongside him. Sure him joining the gang and everyones reaction towards that idea wasn't shown, though it's pretty obvious how it would play out, so i don't see the reason for showing it.

It's different with Kanade, because we know the history between her and everyone goes back quite a bit, after so many battles the two have had.

someone said that it's due to her using the cloning move. When she cuts down that huge fish. When she use that move. A clone or a replication or maybe its after image but the point is that replication had a red eyes like that evil tenshi.

I appreciate the fact that the excess drama that could have come out in Otonashi's back story but was very well controlled and suppressed. I guess it should be obvious that it was never meant to be for emotion but for revelation, to of course make the viewer understand his situation now that he finally remembers his past but not exactly to make you all weepy over him.

I still can't for the life of me understand completely why Naoi would join them. Besides the fact that he's practically Ho Yay for Otonashi, and that of course he no longer has any reason to be violent or to fight them, the transition is kind of jarring. I'm not too sure how we're supposed to fill the gap in this case.

Fishing trip was full of lol. What I got from that wasn't the comedy but seemingly Otonashi's intentions and relationship with Kanade. Given his past with his sister, I'm seeing similarities here with his sister. Perhaps he's starting to think the same of Kanade as with her sister, as a person who feels alone and isolated?

As for a Key heroine VA guesting here, I guess we still need... uh Tomoko Kawakami, Yui Horie, Keiko Suzuki and I forget who voices Rin in LB.

Finally got to watch the sub for episode 7. So it appears that Otonashi and Kanade are each others "ticket" out of this limbo. Though I wish Kanade shows a bit more personality towards Otonashi now. I guess it will take more time to thaw out the icequeen.

Notice in the first three frames the clones eyes were still yellow, hence my theory that Kanade's new skill has a bug and it went haywire.

Recovering your memories is dangerous business. Knowing what regret you have from your past life just makes it easier to be disappeared. Considering how everyone else's stories seem to run, wouldn't ignorance be bliss? Just kick back and enjoy your heavily-armed Otonashi x Tenshi x Yuri x Naoi (x evil!Tenshi) school life.

I was a little disappointed by how simply Otonashi's backstory was cleared up. I thought his amnesia meant something, but nope, it was just a plot device to delay revealing his past (the usual "crap happened and I regret" sob story). And now it's over, moving on...

If he had his memories before then he might not have join the SSS and his personality would have been different.

I dunno about that. He realized how unfairly his life ended for him, wouldn't that give him a lot more motivation to fight against "God" like the rest of the SSS?

If he had his memories from the start, he would have reasons to hate God. Given how SSS recruits its members, and Kanade's initial reception, he would not be sympathetic of her (Kanade route would not be opened). Thus, Kanade would remain an enemy to the SSS's eyes forever.

Anyway just because I'm confused: Is it for certain that red eyes black dragon Tenshi is the harmonize clone? I always assumed that they somehow combine again after harmonizing.

When they were fishing for the large fish, I bet Kanade was thinking, "You guys are in my way" (displaying her MASSIVE strength when she pulled all the gang up into the air along with the fish.

Well, it is the most logical conclusion based on what we see from this ep, and there isn't anything that points to evil Tenshi not being the Harmonics clone. What it seems like right now is that Kanade screwed up while developing Harmonics and it backfired on her here, as theorized in this post. We'll just have to see what happens next week I guess; I really have no idea where this show is heading anymore.

I'm leaning heavily in the "Moengel's skill bugged out" theory, considering the 0s and 1s and that it makes a duplicate. Maybe she pulled a Kami and split her evil half off.
