Angel Beats 3: The second coming of Christ.
April 17, 2010 in Angel Beats
You heard’em folks! Turns out that Jesus wasn’t black afterall. HE WAS JAP.
Yeeeaaah. Ya know what, imma say it now. My 3 favorite characters in this show are Noda, T.K., and the new Self-proclaimed Christ. No really, that kid cracks me up a whole lot when he demands to be called Christ.
Anywho, this episode was pretty sad and quite tragic (if that’s the appropriate word, considering we’re dealing with dead people here…) when it came to Iwasawa. I mean, her backstory was pretty bad too. Finding salvation through music only to lose the ability to speak and died of brain damage… all cuz her dad bust her in the back of her head with a wine bottle. Ugh, that was just real sad there. Even sadder when Iwasawa disappeared during her last song, the ballad called My Song. Yuri originally rejected the song, but the song was powerful. Unfortunately, Iwasawa seems to be gone for good. So much for Dead Girls Monster huh? I was starting to like their music. I wonder if someone’s gonna disappear every episode just like she did…
And now i need to address Angel. When they hacked into her PC, and discovered that she creates her own moves… I saw that 4th move called Harmonics, which seems to be more or less a cloning type of
shadow clone Jutsu technique. And I had initially suspected that she had already used it until Angel herself returned to the gymnasium to watch the show.
What really caught my eye, were actual adults being there. Up until now i hadn’t seen a single adult. And even now, they’re portrayed as the bad guys as well.
hell, this also brings the question of Angel not getting her powers from god and makes one wonder if he really exists. Though, my question is this: If God didn’t exist, then what the hell is that world? And how did people discover they can make whatever they want out of dirt? Where did THAT ability come from? That’s a good question, isn’t it…
Great episode overall. Pretty good balance of Comedy and drama. Though, if everyone’s got some tragic past leading to their deaths, I wanna know ‘bout T.K. I bet he went out like a badass. He should tell his backstory in English O_O
