Angel Beats! — Episode 12 Fun, Japanese Style

You know, when Angel Beats! goes off the air, I’m going to miss all of the hilarious fun the Japanese have with the series.

To get things started, our Japanese cousins have determined the REAL image Noda was looking at when contemplating moving on.

Did you think the construct down in Lab 2 was monitoring the world and the NPC’s? Nope. He was stalking Kanade, aka Tenshi.

Remember the bathroom scene when Yuri fled there because of the embarrassment? Heh! That was a mistake. *lol*

When you gotta go, you gotta go! (Reminds me of the end of Series 3, episode 1 of the Bristish sci-fi/comedy Red Dwarf.)

Someone even took the time to do SHIFT-JIS/ASCII art of that image. ^_^;

That became pretty popular. ^_^;

Then, someone had the idea of taking Yuri’s crazy eyed look from near the end of episode 12 and cutting out the mouth, nose, and eyes.

Then the task became to incorporate those elements onto other faces.

They decided not to limit themselves to just episode 12 (obviously).

Naturally, since the Yuri bathroom images from earlier had been such a hit, time to go back to that well with the eyes.

The Japanese are SCARY when it comes to Photoshop. *lol*

Finally, while not humor, someone decided to post six different ED images to show how they changed over time and which episode they came from.

I’ve never been sure if there was any real meaning to the changes or it if was just to generate buzz. The Japanese buzzed about it every time the ED image changed.

It’ll be interesting to see what the Japanese do with the final episode. ^_^

    I don’t trust my memory any more these days… did the “real picture Noda was looking at” actually happen, or is it someone’s imagination of why Yuri kicked him down into the pit in episode 2?

    (Or for that matter, could it be the blu-ray version by comparison to the TV episode?)

    (Argh. See, this is why I don’t trust my memory… when I checked, it was actually Hinata that she kicked into the pit. All blue-haired people look alike to me.)

    Well, I’m pretty sure with the popularity that Angel Beats! has, there’s going to be a whole load of images coming out after Episode 13 comes out.
    I’m not sure if you follow 2ch’s “Anime Saimoe Tournament”, where various factions are competing for the so-called “most moe character”, but there’s usually lots of images of characters that the users support. I’m sure Angel Beats! will be one of the largest contingencies overall this year, if not the largest. (Kanade, Yuri, and Yui should score the highest). Just beware of the two Kyoto titles who might derail them. The SOS-dan is still bitter about what happened in 2006…
    Wait, I shouldn’t be following something as trivial as this…

    @arimareiji — well, back in episode 2, it was difficult trying to keep everyone straight so its understandable that you’d forget the specifics.

    @Kirbstar — I’d guess there will be images and hentai stuff for sure. However, there won’t be new episodes for the Japanese to have fun with using Photoshop.
