Angel Beats! Episode #07

So it’s seems Jun Maeda skips what happened on the cliffhanger thing last episode and move on the this…

Ayato Naoi became friendly to the SSS (like he’s part of it) thanks to Otonashi’s power hug! (Which I don’t know what happened to him…) Still, he retains his position as student council president and his mind-control powers. Moving on…


Here’s a video, demonstrating his powers to Hinata!

So what’s the significance of having Naoi-kun in your party? By using his mind-control to hypnotize Otonashi-kun into remembering his past…

This story goes:

Otonashi (or Yuzuru-kun, his first name) has a sick sister named Hatsune who he visits her to make his little sister happy, even buying magazines as souvenirs from his part-time job salaries. He led himself into a directionless life until one day at Christmas Eve, he took Hatsune outside even though her doctors warned that it’s not possible to go outside. This makes his little sister feel weak and eventually passed away in a cold night at the park. Yuzuru’s life became more miserable upon letting her sister die in the cold. until he was motivated to pursue in life as a doctor when he saw a discharged girl who she was happy that she’s okay and he thinks that happiness can be achieved by helping others like her. Unfortunately, his life came to a halt when he’s involved in a train accident.

Sounds familiar? Yeah, it looks like Otonashi’s backstory played straight from CLANNAD! (Mai Nakahara, playing a sick little girl.) But enough backstory on this episode… time for another SSS mission! It’s called “Operation: Monster Stream”.

No, not that kind of “monster stream”, it’s just a fishing mission… Oh, Yuzuru-kun… you and your imagination! Anyways, every SSS members (plus Naoi-kun) will participate on this mission. This includes Kanade-chan, tagging along the party! Although hesitant at first, but Yurippe allow her to join.

Upon arriving the lake, they met “Fish” Saitou who guides them on river fishing and providing the equipment for it. Although everyone knows how to fish… with different methods, Kanade seems to be a fishing newb until she hits…

The big one! That’s right, the monster fish has arrived!!! Everyone took part on pulling the fish out, until Kanade-chan jumps and pulls so hard that all SSS members are flying and about to be swallowed by the monster fish! What shall they do? Or what shall Kanade do?

Make a clone and slice the fish into pieces! Then, make a fish chowder and give some of the portions to the NPCs. Well, that’s all in a day’s work in the Afterlife Battlefield! However…

Yurippe was attacked by… Kanade? Or maybe her clone with red eyes… Maybe an answer to that will be on the next episode!
