5.0 out of 5 stars The Saddest Anime Ever! 3 Mar 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I bought this from Amazon.com; at the time (a few months back) it wasn't available in the UK (It is the US region version that I have - the one to be sold by Amazon UK will be a UK edition).

The first thing you notice about this series is the stunning picture and sound quality (even for blu-ray!). The animation is utterly superb; the opening sequence (of Kanade playing the piano) completely takes your breath away, and the end theme is also very poignant and beautifully done. The story is based on the unusual premise of a sort of 'afterlife' if you will (although not really in the Judeo-Christian sense; this one appears to be in a Japanese high school!) where the characters go after death, if they died feeling unfulfilled or badly-done-to. A side effect of being in this 'pergatory' is that the inhabitants cannot die; they can be 'killed' say by a gunshot or knife, but reawaken shortly after, fully restored. However; dying still hurts just as much as in the 'real' world, so they try not to be 'killed' too often! The characters can decide to 'pass over' to eternity, once they are convinced there is no further reason for them to stay. When that happens, the character simply disappears; usually the camera view will switch away from the character who is 'passing', and when it comes back, they are gone. No sound or visual clue accompanies their passing. The story follows the efforts of a group of the 'students', who have formed a band of rebel freedom fighters, to avoid 'passing on', as they feel aggrieved, and that it is God's fault that they died prematurely! I won't give any more detail, as it would spoil the story, but have your Kleenex ready; you will cry at various points in the story, especially at the end.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this on a whim after reading good reviews everywhere. Even tho it was not to my normal anime taste(berserk,ergo proxy,black lagoon etc) i thought it was brilliant. Sad, funny & gorgous to look at i cant recommend it highly enough. Give it a go you wont be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story and a must watch series 15 Mar 2014
By Phil R
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Following the japanese idea of teen school life is the greatest time of your life, This series follows a group of teens that have died and before they get reborn have a chance live out their greatest heart felt wish in a ghost type highschool,
but not knowing this they fight against the system (particularly one girl who they think is a angel trying to kill them) thinking to cease existing here is to die. so this story basically follows a new guy, and the love forming between him and the main heroin as they realise their dreams and move on to a new life while trying to fight against disappearing (moving on to be reborn)
Great story a must watch

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly good anime when you get into it. 27 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This anime broaches the subject of life after death in a very unique way. The first couple of episodes may not make much sense but the characters soon grow on you, so much so that you'll probably be crying like a little girl at the end. I know I almost did.

4.0 out of 5 stars the labels on the box and dvd are wrong xD 4 Feb 2014
By roxanne
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this series but the only thing is... the dvd box and discs say that episode 1-9 are on disc one and then 10-13 and the ova on the next disc... I was so confused thinking that there were episodes missing on the first disc ... but it must of been a manufacturer mistake because the episodes 8 and 9 are on the second disc

4.0 out of 5 stars Something everyone should watch 17 Jan 2014
By redhead
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first few episodes may seem a bit off-putting depending on your preference of genre - I initially put this off as I considered the humour to be a little overwhelming. But don't do that, keep watching no matter what. I got back into this after reading so many good reactions to this and I'm glad I listened. This teaches people life lessons as well as touches the soft side of your heart whilst also suffocating your lungs with laughter at times. Theres so much to say but little to explain. Just watch it; you won't regret it. A heartfelt series.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Limbo 16 Jan 2014
By jcf
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It begins with the protagonist Otonashi awakening in a school yard next to a girl wielding a sniper rifle called Yuri. He has amnesia and asks her some simple questions to which she responds with insane answers, all the while keeping another distant girl focused in her sniper aim. He leaves the first and approaches the second targeted girl who proceeds to viciously slaughter him. He then awakens in an infirmary unharmed, amazed to be alive and so the story proceeds with him attempting to ascertain the truth of himself and the world and it's people around him.

The entertainment in Angle Beats comes in part from following Otonashi around this purgatory while questioning what the truth of this place is. Mostly the fun is in watching Yuri deliver her bizarre mission briefings to her mixed bag of followers, the intention of which is to undermine their enemy a small girl they call Angel. Light entertainment and humor is scattered throughout.

Character development is scarce and most if not all of them will be quickly forgotten afterward. This includes the protagonist who is the usual anime lead male archetype: always well intentioned, harmless, bland and totally dull. The only anyway slightly interesting or memorable person here is Yuri the purple haired girl on the center of the front cover.

Angle Beats comes across as somewhat schizophrenic. As though it was originally intended as a slightly dark exploration of personal, philosophical and theocratic concepts surrounding a self imposed purgatory. Then it was puffed out with lots of light humor and entertainment and the characters were mostly lobotomize. The final scene looks like something thought up after the creation of the original story, simply tacked on to offer a happy ending.

The animations are of high quality and the opening sound track is excellent (I give it four stars because of that).

The Visuals are amazing. There's a lot of sad backstories, so brace yourself for that. Also a lot of music and singing scenes in the form of a rock concert.
