Otonashi Yuzuru has one memory: he died.
He's stuck in a high school of the afterlife, his own surreal purgatory with two choices: give up his connection to life and submit to his fate… or fight against God! If he chooses the latter option, the Shinda Sekai Sensen (SSS) is here to help - they're here to see that your untimely death is avenged.
One problem though: Angel, the president of the school council.
Throw in an all-girl rock band called Girl's Dead Monster, buckets of blacker than black comedy, more weapons than you can handle and you're only half-way to heaven…but you've still gotta get through hell!
Directed by Seiji Kishi (My Bride is a Mermaid, Ragnarok: The Animation ) and written by Jen Maeda (CLANNAD, Air, Kanon) and with animation handled by P.A. Works (CANAAN, Fullmetal Alchemist), Angel Beats! is fast paced action with a supernatural edge.
