    Alright folks..who's gonna be watching this with me? I have been looking forward to it since the first preview and I think it's gonna be amazing. It's made by a lot of members from Key and has an all star cast of staff.


    [​IMG]
    Synopsis: In a world after death, angels fight for their fate and their future. Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi, the chairperson of the student council for the world after death, battles against the SSS members. SSS members utilize armed weaponry to battle it out against the angels harnessing supernatural powers.

    It's animated by P.A. Works which is a relatively new studio but they have done incredible animation quality in their 2 previous shows, True Tears and Caanan..both of which were beautifully animated...who knows, if Key likes them they might go with P.A. Works for their future shows instead of Kyoto Animation.

    It also has a purple Haruhi clone and everyone's dead, that and Jun from Key said that "It will make you cry" so expect epicness comparable to his previous works, Clannad and Kanon..and if you have shitty taste, Air.

    In!

    Some good looking stuff this season like this, Heroman, Working, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Kaichou wa Maid-sama! and maybe Hakuouki if it doesnt turn into some kind of bishounen circle jerk.

    Agreed, Kaichou wa Maid Sama! looks very good..they apparently fuck in the manga so maybe the anime will get somewhere unlike some other shoujo romances that I've seen. I've heard Hakouki the game is good apparently but DEEEEEEEN is doing it and if you recall at how much they fucked up Umineko I can't trust them on it.

    No idea, I heard that from some fat fangirls on /a/ who were claiming they fuck in it somewhere..or it was implied or something like that. I don't really read manga and I sure as hell didn't read up on Kaichou wa Maid Sama! to hear more about it..I'll just wait for the anime.

    Alright Mazui's subs are out.

    It's fucking pornography for the eyes, the visuals on it are incredible and the animation is top notch..the level of detail is also excellent. Out of all of the shows that have aired so far this season this is by far the best...it's got blood, gore and a loldeep plot. What more can you ask for?

    If you hadn't mention Key, I wouldn't have considered watching it.

    She isn't as bitchy as Haruhi..from the dialog she seems to be less tsundere than Haruhi and more mature. But yeah, you can easily see where the similarities of Haruhi come from with her.

    She also wants it up her ass, that slut.

    You can see them if you look hard enough but for the most part you really can't tell unless you're looking for them. Overall the backgrounds and the details of everything along with the generally good animations make it look amazing.

    I'm really torn on what they're gonna do for the sadness in this. Like, they're already dead so nobody's gonna "die"...I'm pretty sure you can't get pregnant and die in childbirth when you're dead..and of course there is no curses that kill you because you're already dead. Unless they somehow come back to life and resume a life in the living world and someone dies or has a miscarriage or some other Key drama I don't see this being dramatic.

    If they cannot die, whats the point of all the fighting and violence? I have not watched it yet so forgive me if it was covered in the first episode.

    It hasn't been covered really..but the general consensus is that they're fighting "the man" because if they don't fight they get turned into nothing and they basically disappear. They brought Buddhism into it where they reincarnate as something else and they don't want to, they want to be "human" and not something else. So they're fighting but they cannot really lose unless Angel forces them to conform or whatever.

    this is what i think the "sadness" will be, i think that this world is a gateway between death and reincarnation such that it gives you time to let it sink in that you died, the sadness part is probably how haruhi and the guy died and how to come to terms with it or something like that because of how bitter she is that she died and doesnt want to believe it
