Press Release

Per PR:



HOUSTON, March 24, 2011—Sentai Filmworks today announced its acquisition of Japan’s white-hot anime series, ANGEL BEATS. A multi-media mega-franchise with two manga, a series of illustrated short stories and two internet radio shows, each new volume of ANGEL BEATS has consistently ranked in the top three nationwide bestselling Blu-Ray releases in Japan. Now the series is coming to the U.S. on both DVD and Blu-Ray. Both releases will include an all new English dub, with the first episodes of the dub set to premiere at Anime Boston.

Synopsis: It sucks being dead. Sucks even more to be trapped in a surreal afterlife where you’re caught between the living and the dead—where a mysterious, violent Angel is trying to pull you over to…somewhere. What do you do? Well, if you’re this group of rough-and-tumble teens, you grab every weapon you can get your hands on and give Heaven hell! High-caliber action and locked-and-loaded comedy meet on a rock and roll battleground in Angel Beats!

I would like a cast list for Angel Beats! now thaat I watched it at Anime Boston please.

One thing that sounds weird to me in the dub is they don’t say “erased” when talking about when they disappear they say “obliterated”

Well, let’s start with what u heard: did anyone sound familiar to you since u were there?

I want to say Yuri kinda sounded like Brittney Karbowski but I could be wrong, She is the only one I can take a guess. I thought Yuri sounded kinda young but I think I need to just see it again.

As soon as we find out, we’ll post it here.

Agree :woohoo:



one question before I buy the season, will I own it or is it a rental that will expire? I never used Itunes before. I just watched episode 1.

If you buy the season pass, you own the shows. The rentals are per episode only.

Ok I will buy.

I just checked out the first episode and I really enjoyed it. The dub is pretty good too and all the voices are matched well to their characters. I can’t wait to watch more.

Is it just me or is the only one availible the “SD” episode 1 it would’t download the “HD” one. anyway I am just going to buy the “SD” pass.

Mine downloaded both the SD and HD episodes. DId you purchase the HD pass, for $29.99? If so, it’s possible iTunes HD may not be compatible with your hardware. However, in that case it generally still downloads it, but you won’t be able to play it back on your computer.

Like I said I am new to Itunes, I accidently clicked on the " free HD rental" I tried to click on the free HD download but it said I ordered it already. and its not downloading anything. Then I clicked on the "free SD download and it downloaded right away.

Hilary Haag made Yui sound so cute in that scene that only lasted a second. “Iwasawa looky this way”.
When Otonashi in on the bridge and sees Angel, I laugh every time he says “Blahh” lol
