    In a world after death, angels fight for their fate and their future. Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi, the chairperson of the student council for the world after death, battles against the SSS members. SSS members utilize armed weaponry to battle it out against the angels harnessing supernatural powers.



    Definitely the best Anime currently airing and the best this season will get, apparently they put everything into episode 1 and it really does show, hope it continues like this for the whole show, it's basically just Haruhi with guns and lots of blood.

    What did everyone else think of the first episode?

    First ep had some incredible 'how the hell did they miss it' glaring art work errors in the first half.

    Plot is ok, art work on this is also drawing a lot of flak for looking like a Haruhi rip off.

    Best show airing? no I wouldn't go that far. You might not like moe blob anime, but at least K-On!! (season two if you didn't catch the second !) doesn't possess glaringly inadequate art quality (although some whine that it doesn't possess complex plot lines).

    If ep 01 was indeed their best, their best isn't good enough.

    Art work errors? Care to elaborate?
    And again, at least it HAS plot
    I thought every aspect of it was amazing, character development is already showing within the first episode

    Kaichou wa Maid-sama, I think is the best anime airing right now.

    I suppose it comes down to what you prefer, I would rather have immortal chicks with guns than a maid

    I dunno man, I've just come from watching Kimi ni Todoke and I'm after something similar so Kaichou was there to fill the void. There's also a football anime, forgot the name but apparently it's sick.

    Giant Killing, it's utter crap, and this is coming from a footy maniac, the voice acting is absolutely TERRIBLE, after the first episode it was a insta drop

    Yeah, the first episode was really average. It had a "One Outs" feel to it so i'm going to keep watching it though.

    I'd link you to an article but there's NSFW content there so I wouldn't be able to anyways. It's from "one of the worst places on the internet besides 4chan" if that helps you.

    [​IMG]

    That being the worst of them. Try putting your hands on your hips like Yuri and notice where the thumbs should be. Well, other problems were how Yuri was holding the sniper rifle, and "inconsistencies" in character designs in the animation. If you pay attention, you'll notice that they kinda seem to look different every time the scene changed. The thing about this is that it's totally fixable in the DVD/BD version, so come on now.

    I'd have to say, at least they didn't try to go to KyoAni this time with a Jun Maeda/Key work. Nice to see they tried PA Works this time, but it definitely needs work. I liked the episode though, so I'll still be watching it... Well I pretty much don't drop anything and will watch anything.

    Yep Sankaku, for all your unvarnished opinions of anything Japan [​IMG]

    But don't forget to clean your history and watch who is looking when you open the sight.

    You guys ain't old enough for NSFW, in your case it's NSFM (not safe for mom).

    The OP on episode 2... Was amazing.



    I don't really know what else to say.

    EDIT: Two sub groups (Mazui and UTW) have it out now... Though I probably don't need to say that since I'm sure most of you could find it on some torrent tracker anyways.

    Well I watched the first two episodes, and I've gotta say I was impressed. I like the art... yet I kinda don't. I feel it has some sort of a shoujo feel to it... Maybe it's just me, Iunno. But I'll keep watching, seems quite promising.
    Though I'm still kinda confused on the fact that you get "erased" by Angel if the main dude didn't when he approached her...
    Though I'm sure they will elaborate more on it later.

    If you act like they tell you to you will get erased (see all the people at school), it's kind of confusing to explain but it said it all in the first episode, just gonna watch the second now
    EDIT: That OP really is awesome, finally found a rip, a TV rip bear in mind as the CD hasn't been released yet, here's a hint: [SkellURip] My Soul, Your Beats!!.mp3

    At that point in time, he was still not rebelling with the SSS so she doesn't really have any reason to erase him. He just wanted proof that he couldn't die is what I'm guessing, OR the translation could have been bad.

    well i watched it and just noticed theres a thread, i liked it and i will watch it
    but seriously... best show currently airing ? what do u mean by currently airing ? on going or new ?

    there are a lot of new animes that are better...

    k-on, seikon no qwaser, ikki tousen s4

    as for on-going i don't think i have to mention... (fma???)

    just the fact that its a haruhi rip off makes it automatically disqualified as the best show...

    and especially since theres a new haruhi movie that totally kicked ass and was the best thing this year
    noone can compare to haruhi theres only one haruhi and noone should even dare to think about copying haruhi thats a unforgiveable sin

    that being said... im still watching it^^

    I can't quite agree that K-ON!! is better than Angel Beats!, but I still like it at the very least. There are many aspects in AB! that I already like better than K-ON!!. And for the other two, I have not watched, but aren't they just ecchi/extreme service anime? I find it very hard to believe those are better, but I'd have to watch them both to make a fair comparison. I'm not a huge fan of that genre really, so it's a matter of taste really.

    Now FMA is pretty good, but I'd have to see both all the way through first. They should both finish around the same time.

    Haruhi ripoff? Well, the only thing I have to say to that is if you haven't been paying attention, Yuri is not a brat, nor does she get everything her way(just think about the reason she's fighting against god), she even cares quite a bit more about what her crew and what they have to say, and she isn't as random or irrational as Haruhi. There's an ACTUAL reason why everyone follows her and they weren't abducted either. How can you possibly say that Yuri is Haruhi(aside from looks and SSS).

    yes they are extreme service anime xD i wanted to compare to new series and well its just coincidence i really watch all kinds of animes,

    and yuri is like haruhi looks + personality and hell she even talks like her a bit
    its obvious they wanted to make her like haruhi

    and just watch the new haruhi movie and u will understand that haruhi cares for her friends A LOT and u will also understand that certain people arent there just because they were ABDUCTED
    i cant say anything since i dont wanna spoil anyone^^ the movie is just too good
    it was good enough to make up for the shitty camrip
