Angel Beats! Another Epilogue

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Angel Beats! Another EpilogueIt is exam time in the classroom and as the students take the test, one male student suddenly realizes that this life he’s in is a lie as he had died.  As such, the test doesn’t matter.  He asks if he can get to heaven with good grades.

His outburst brings the Student Council President, Otonashi, to the classroom where he challenges the “awakened” student to do what he needs to do.  The student says he wants to challenge Otonashi, so Otonashi leaves, telling the student to stop by at any time.  Otonashi returns to the Student Council room to wait.

Thoughts/Review:

Angel Beats! Another EpilogueIs Key planning to do a sequel to Angel Beats!?  I ask because the way this new epilogue to episode 13 goes, it seems to be setting the stage for another series, this time with Otonashi playing the role of Tenshi. That could be interesting but to be honest, I’m not sure I could work up enough enthusiasm to return to this world with a whole new set of characters.

Angel Beats! Another EpilogueRegardless, seeing Otonashi alone for who knows how long after Tenshi and the others departed was something that the original ending didn’t mention (obviously).  Otonashi was shown to be the last one there but then was shown to apparently be reborn along with Tenshi.  So apparently, Otonashi lived for however long to help kids move on before he eventually moved on.  Hmmmm.

Well, it was interesting to see this epilogue, whether a sequel comes from it or not.

    Sorry for the ot but this kind of stupidity is begging for an editorial by someone who knows the industry well like you do ANB.

    @Anon — You talked me into it. ^_~

    (Actually, a window opened in my schedule and I thought, “what the heck.” It will appear later today.)

    Great, looking forward to it! I wish we could somehow explain to the Japanese that pulling shit like this only serves to alienate those of us trying to support the industry and has very little effect on the pirates.

    Remember, what I post is simply my opinion. However, if you want a head start on my blog article, watch “Mr. Baseball.” ^_~ (I plan to rewatch it myself now.)
