Angel Beats!, one of the more popular animé in recent memory, is a 2010 series from Key Visual Arts, the same company behind Kanon, Air, and animé classic Clannad. Unlike most of their other works, though, this one was not originally a visual novel, meaning that they had no foreground to work with – everything was completely original this time. While popular, that isn't a sign of quality, so the question must be asked: Is Angel Beats! good?
Sitting here trying to figure out how to begin this review was probably the hardest part about starting it. I have no idea where to begin and where to end the talk about Baccano. The thought of not knowing where this review would end up quickly became the perfectly ironic start for talking about this crazy, unexpectedly suave Anime.
Hello there! Skip the introduction and let’s get straight to the boobs!
Oh… wait a minute? What’s all this in between the boobs? Is this… actual plot development? No no… it must be cleavage. The genre says ecchi so it has to be over the top ecchi madness with no plot… right? WRONG! I’ve got to say, I was pretty impressed with this anime. Not because it was the most spectacular anime around, but because it was so… weird…
It seems that October's rolled around and I thought it'd be only fitting to compile a sort of Halloween-ish review. You know, blood, vampires, ghouls, zombies, and otherworldly abominations that are meant to traumatize kids under the age of ten. So to reign in the new month, I decided to start off light and as the month progresses, the reviewed series that I choose will become more gruesome and terrifying.
So how about we just get into it. Here's the first review of the month: Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan.
As someone who has seen the original 2003 anime it was a pleasure to learn that Hiromu Arakawa's popular series, Fullmetal Alchemist, would be getting a remake that is faithful to the manga. When the first series aired back in 2003 it was praised by many as a masterpiece, so as you can imagine when Brotherhood was announced many people were doubtful as to whether or not it could live up to the first series. To many people’s surprise however, Brotherhood far surpassed their expectations.
It was Absolutely brilliant!
That was a "outburst" start but i really enjoyed this first season. It was filled with the expected comedy and sexiness expected from an ecchi. Other than the amazing visual art and epic fight scenes, I really did enjoy the plot of this season.
For the girls it might be a little discriminating (this coming from a guy) but you will enjoy it too. It has an excellent balance or comedy and romance for you too enjoy.

I honestly don't know how I decided to watch this. When I came across it, it was around 4am on a Sunday morning and I couldn't sleep. And at the time I had two choices: watch a random show on Netflix or watch political commentators bicker about bathroom rights. Guess which one I chose?
