Was wondering the same thing myself. Oh the joy i would've had just from witnessing his stabbing

Things are still happening a bit too conveniently for my liking in the show, but I think I'm starting to learn to stop questioning shit and just run with it. Pretty much going into the "i give up and i don't care anymore" mode lol

EDIT: Also major laughs with Iceblock and his/her Dark Archon thing on the first page, keep em StarCraft parallels coming for future eps. They're hilarious as hell

Somehting like....

Takeyama: Go... just call me... Christ.... (or he's probably too weak). Evil Tenshi won't be affected by his nosebleed powers of reciting pi.

Probably busying walking back from wherever he landed after Kanade accidentally launched him.

Never have I laughed so hard at people throwing themselves to their doom with gay abandon. It'd be disturbing were it not so funny.

Solid episode, more so than the previous ones anyway. There's stuff that still bug me about this series, but things came together better here.

I can't believe I only realised Takeyama was missing after reading the comments. So thats why I thought it felt odd when Yuri was messing with Kanade's program. takeyama needing to walk back after being sent flying last week makes perfect sense too. Poor Kanade, being forced to assimilate with her evil clones. Yuri should have took time to go through the manual, or at least on the parts involving the skills she was messing around with. Maybe she did and just didn't care about Kanade's well being. I'll go with that.

Now THAT is how you tell a story. No qualms with me here. Heck, they even made the deaths pretty damn funny. XD

Best episode so far, bar none. Man, those clones are so devious. Planning a trap within a trap; GENIUS!

And the way they foreshadowed that was brilliant. I knew something was fishy when Yuri found new programs; if they can make new ones, whats stopping them from modifying or deleting existing ones? Not to say that the clones modified it; they probably didn't, as they have no need to because they knew what the result would be. Just that if it really was such a dangerous thing to their existence, they would've done something about it.

Also was pretty suspicious how the Kaname Klones don't put a pursuit after someone 'judo pin sacrifice' her. Pretty sure Yuri was mistaken in that would stop the clones; they just chose not to in order for them to move on to fall deeper into the trap.

So yeah, yet again, Angel Beats delivers.

Shakugan no Tenshi, anyone?


Also, anyone hoping for Yui to be the show's tunsdere? I totally didn't expected her to be in glimmery love eyes over Hinata's death.

Kanade will be just fine. Didn't we learn from episode 6 that Otonashi's manhug is the best skill out there?

Rie Kugimiya VA change, tsundere towards Otonashi, gets a pendant round her neck...declares herself as the one that balances lives and lets people move on...says that everyone is just a shadow of their former selves...

lol, given the parallels between torches in Shana and the afterlife of Angel Beats you'd probably be able to pull it off fairly well actually haha

Good episode. One thing that bugs me is that for some reasons I felt that this episode was too short I know the time slot for all the episodes are all the same...but perhaps because I was too engrossed with this episode that I didn't feel that 30 minutes have passed >_>;

There's also another things that bugs me in this episode...I know Yuri is strong, but isn't her ability (like Tenshi), is not human-like at all ? It's as if she have her own version of 'Overdrive' or whatever you call it, that boost her strength more than normal. Noticed that she can throw Tenshi to the wall with just one swing, and her ability to trace Tenshi's blade @_@

Perhaps I'm overthinking about it?

Otonashi's fantasy became army of Kanades! And they were perfect copies in terms of skills and strength but not in the display of emotion and aggressiveness.

Poor Kanade, hopefully she will be fine and that pain caused after absorbing all the clones is temporary, without severe consequences in the future.

And finally, the awesome music from PV6 used during an unexpected and hilariously awesome scene. LOL TK

Harem potential in Harmonics.

It goes without saying that TK's sacrifice was the coolest of all. Yuri should have left TK in charge of modifying Tenshi's program.

... Since English obviously isn't a foreign language to him.
