OK, cliched post titles aside, I’m trying something new – rather than trying to do all-around reviews, I’ll be picking out certain aspects of what I review that really jumped out at me as something needing further discussion. We’ll see how this works.. and if, after reading this post, you disagree (or agree) with me, please feel free to discuss it. I’m open to opinions and other interpretations on this one, because I really wanted to like it.
As expected, that means these posts will be filled with more spoilers, but I’ll try to hold them until after the “Read More” section.
So, about this co-production between Key/Visual Arts, P.A.Works, Aniplex, and ASCII Media Works: Angel Beats!
I tried to keep my expectations in check for Angel Beats! The Clannad anime – based on Key’s game of the same name – was pretty good. I thought the central relationship was well-developed and there was enough going. I didn’t care for Kanon and I thought Air had an interesting premise that was left unsupported by its cast.
