anime review: angel beats

yoshh minna!!!!
i'm back and ready to review the anime "Angel beats".

okay now imagine a highschool...  and in this so called highschool there was an organization whose main objectives is to go against all the normal regulation of school. because if you did, you'll disappear. and their enemy is the angel (tenshi) who is in truth the student council president.

the SSS brigade 

enemies become friends that works together
Upon waking up, the first thing Otonashi sees aside of this beautiful night sky is Yuri, who is aiming at a girl they call Tenshi (Angel) with a big automatic gun. He has no recollection of who he is or how he got there. The world he finds himself in does not reach further than the school grounds and is inhabited by 3 kinds of people: First NPCs, who are soulless students and only appear to have normal behaviour; second the students, who teamed up to build the Afterlife Battlefront led by Yuri; and third Tenshi, who they are desperately fighting against. After Otonashi joins up with the Afterlife Battlefront he learns that in this world no one seems to age or die and that this world seems to be some kind of afterlife limbo. Everyone has deep regrets about their previous lives they don’t really want to talk about, projecting their hate and bitterness onto God and Thenshi. Yet, Otonashi is the only one who still doesn’t remember anything. Unlike the other members of the Afterlife Battlefront, he asks questions and does not simply drown his regrets in an everlasting battle against this mysterious Tenshi girl, dulling their pain and forgetting that the one they really hate are they themselves and their helplessness.

Angel Beats is an original story and arguably one of the best and most successful anime of 2010. What seems like a weird scenario at first, quickly turns into an emotional roller-coaster as you learn about the tragic pasts of the main characters. These authentic depictions of the problems and hardships of contemporary teenagers let the viewer relate to them on a level very few other anime can compete with. In between there is a lot of humor and mystery, which fits in just perfectly. Music, opening and ending are equally as beautiful rounding up an already perfect anime. Many complain that 13 episodes are not enough and wish for more episodes, while I think it is just fine the way it ended. It’s one of those shows able to move viewers to tears and will not disappoint.  (

because i am unable to review this on my own, i took the review of other site. so all the credit goes to the writer

and i love the pairings in this, even if i know they can't be together.
yui x hinata -love hate relationship
kanade x otonashi- bonding by the same beating heart
yui x hinata
this moment... 
the full quotes
the heart that beating inside of me is your, thank you- kanade

all i can say in my own language is that this anime has a beautifully tragic ending that left you bawling your eyes out

once enemies
now they wish they had more times with each other

anime review: ano hana

alright, i didn't post anything lately because, well in my defense i was busy. i still read and watch movies and everything but i couldn't seem to find the time to post about them here.

today, i think i'll talk about my latest anime that i finished. i watched other anime too like naruto, one piece and bleach but those are not finished yet so they need to wait. the one anime i'll talk about is Ano Hana

the cover of the DVD volume
 Ano Hana or the long title is Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai. is a story about friendship, love, jealousy, youth and death. it is about how a single event, a single person can effect person differently.

the one photograph that everyone seemed to have
the story focused on Jintan, a deliquent who seem to like to spend his time inside his house. playing game and watching TV. however, his normal, mundane, boring lifestyle was disturbed by the appearance of Menma, a friend who had died ten years ago. 

The Super Peace Buster
ten years ago, there were six children who are very close to each other and called themselves "The Super Peace Buster". they love to play in the woods where they build a secret base. however, after the death of Menma, the six friends drifted apart. the difference schools the attend also become a problem for them to keep in touch. 
the cast in chil form and teen form, except Menma

however, the appearance of Menma, who only Jintan can see and hear started to pull them together again. they need to figure out Menma's wish and grant it so that menma can go to heaven, or so they thought. Following the events of the story, lots of secret were revealed. feelings were hurt and heart were torn. 

Menma's  last words
i think everyone can relate to this story, we all know that someone,  a person, that used to be so close to us when we were smaller now become a perfect stranger. we don't know him or her anymore. everyone had change, in one way or another.

more to this 

i really recomend this to whoever looking for a fresh take on friendship ad love story. be warned that you need a box of tissue for this. 

BTW, i love the ending theme "Secret Base". it is very deep......
