Third episode of “Angel Beats!” is simply amazing…
Talk about the story, animation and music – Words can’t describe how great it is, but to watch it yourself. Here, we have several screencaps for the episode.
Don’t continue reading if you don’t want to spoil the fun of watching the episode yourself.
The character for the day is Iwasawa, the lead vocal of the marvelous all girls band – “Girls Dead Monster”.
We’re introduced with a new character – Takeyama. or what he insisted to be called as “Christ”. From his looks, he is a genius super hacker who could read out PI. =.=
The operation – “Angel Area Invasion Plan”, well, to sneak into the place where Angel lives and get information.
No TK action… ORZZ
More Key coffee.
The mysterious demonic girl from the first episode finally gets her screen time. She’s also a member of SSS and a big fan of Girls Dead Monster. I wondered the importance of her role in this series as she’s not appearing in the opening and ending.
Otonashi stumbles on GirlDeMo, practicing for the concert.
Iwasawa is so cool.
Iwasawa told Otonashi about her past… If I’m her, I wouldn’t accepted my fate too…
Tenshi: “It’s almost like I’m the bad guy.”
What does this means?!?!?
I like girls with confidence look.
The most powerful OS in the world, introducing – Macrosoft Winding XO.
Just like the first episode, the concert scene is AWESOME. I couldn’t help but to take loads of screen caps.
Our cute bassist – Sekine.
Their song is great, especially Alchemy. I can’t wait for the release of their single.
Yusa, the operator of SSS. She’s a calm and gentle mannered girl.
Their concert is heated up with intervention of teachers and staffs, forcefully stopping their performance.
Seems they’ve retrieved some important data.
Ballad song – here’s the highlight of the episode. (sorry I don’t know the name of the song)
EDIT* – apparently, the upcoming Girls Dead Monster single release has a song named “My Song”, so my guess it’s the name of the song.
I like Iwasawa a lot, especially when she’s singing, how could she disappear from the series… Even the ending has being altered, and she’s replaced with Takeyama (or Christ).
From wiki, the world-after-death serve as middle ground between earth and heaven, where students learn to give up any lingering attachments they still have from life before finally going to heaven.
Iwasawa probably accepted her fate, and “graduated” from there. T.T
This episode is certainly great but I’m not satisfied with the fact that they have to rush due to the 13episode restriction. As you can see, the character who just got her episode disappeared in the end.
At this point, Angel Beats! could be one of the very best anime I’ve ever watch if there’s more episode for character developing. For now, there’s still 10 more episodes to go…
How do you think of this episode?
