Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 17

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 17

These scanlators and translators got me again when this chapter came out pretty quick (either that, or school’s making my days go by faster). Anyways, short chapter so lets begin

Well we continue where we left off from last chapter. Which basically is Shiina appearing behind Yuri and Hinata and them trying, well thinking of trying to negotiate at least. Yuri gets the attention from Shiina and gets a blade drawn on her. Read the rest of this entry

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 16 Review

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 16 Review

This release was rather quick in my opinion, but I guess thats just me

The chapter focuses on Noda but not too much as I actually wanted. Now that I think of it, I haven’t really gotten Ooyama’s backstory either. Anyway, the group is faced with an idiot with a dangerous weapon so they might as well see how adept he is with it. Chaa hurls Ooyama to the halberd’s edge and deals considerable damage to him. Either way, Chaa grabs on to Noda and Yuri is able to convince over that they (or rather she) is his ally. Noda says that there is a “boss” at the end of the tunnel waiting for someone.

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 15 Review

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 15 Review

Everyone’s favorite purple headed dumbass who carries around a halberd finally makes his appearence

But only at the end of chapter.

So before i begin, i can hopefully assume that with the release of chapter 15 and with this series being a monthly updated, we have at-least 2-3 more chapters that just need to be translated.  I have a confession, i like Yuri a lot more in the prequel than in the anime series.  Although i like the orderly type, Yuri just has a lot more charm in her.  Hmmm, i wonder if the prequel justifies her instant tsundere mode in the last episode.

So we finally break off to our main cast of Yuri, Hinata, Ooyama, and Cha who finally decided to join the team. For those being unattentive, Yuri now leads the group believing she found something important.  Then the series breaked off to tell Hisako and Iwasawa’s story.  In the last page of the omake chapter, we find Hinata beat to a bloody pulp.

So were to begin with this chapter?

Yuri insults Hinata for not being able to play sports pretty well (baseball doesn’t really help with Volleyball does it)

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 14-14.5 Review

I actually wanted to wait for chapter 15 to be released so i can make a double review, but i guess not

Hey Hey, I guess you guys still remember Angel Beats has a prequel manga.  It’s kinda nice to see how everything got together.  If we can’t make a sequel, lets make a prequel amirite?

Well if you have forgotten, the 2nd volume of Heaven’s Door focuses on Hisako and Iwasawa and the formation of their band.  Recall from last chapter where Hisako finally gets Iwasawa to join her in her fight to express herself as a individual through her music

The chapter begins with Iwasawa giving us a little about her past.  If you don’t remember, she discovered the power song and decided to not go to college and decided to pursue a career in music.  However, she got some damage to her head and she wasn’t able to talk anymore.  Depressive stuff aside, Iwasawa finally arrives where Hisako made a makeshift concert stage (it’s actually anything but a stage as it only has speakers) Anyways, they start jamming out which quickly catches the attention of the students and the teachers as well

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 13


The Hidan no Aria review will be up, i have no school tomorrow because i go to a catholic school.

(According to a picture in this chapter, the events in this chapter take place when our main gang (Hinata, Ooyama, and Yuri try to recruit Cha, with an arrow.)

Iwasawa introduces “Crow Song” (with a lack of grammatically correct phrase, it should be Crow’s Song, but then again, its Japan, they made Cowboy Bebop, they are forgiven) t Hisako, who is taken aback at how amazing Iwasawa is at playing, making, and singing music.  But after such praise, Iwasawa suddenly collapses.  Hisako is scared, REALLY scared, Angel appears in the room to tell her: She’s hungry.

Luckily our short ended (atleast in anime) heroine feeds herself and Hisako explains a little about her past.  In the past, Hisako was in a band, but her (evidently) depressed band leader killed herself, so she calls herself a murderer.  Iwasawa comforts her, Hisako then declares that they put on a concert.  Iwasawa is taken by suprise, but its gonna happen…

Next chapter will come in a month so wait for it

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door Chapter 11-12 Review


I blame Pokemon White and my busy school schedule for putting me off.

These chapters are short compared to others.

Well Chapter 11-12 break off from the rest of the chapters telling Yuri and co.’s plans.  This time around, we get to see more of the character who was just put off the show too quickly, its Iwasawa.

Presumably during Hinata and Yuri’s plotting (or hell maybe a few seconds before chapter 10 ended), Iwasawa awakens and finds herself at the school.  The first she notices, she can talk again.  She dashes to the music room and sings.  But is interrupted by Angel who tells her to go to class.  Iwasawa ignores her commands (but she says it more nicely than i did) and decides to go play some more music.  Scene switches and guess what, Ooyama and Hinata talk about Yuri so this probably means that Iwasawa’s experience coincided or happened right after Yuri’s recruitment of Cha.  Angel finds Iwasawa again and eventually the teachers find about this as well.  Iwasawa runs away near a window, suddenly she is pulled through the window, is it Yuri? Nope, its Hisako

Hisako demonstrates her skill and requests to form a band with her and Iwasawa’s guitar and singing skills.  Iwasawa agrees.  Thats literally the chapter

Until next month

Kore Wa Zombie shall be updated as soon as the episode is out.

Angel Beats! Heaven’s Door re(view/cap)


Well like i said, imma try to cover 10 chapters. Lets get started.

Chapter 1: Hinata arrives late to an SSS meeting.  Yuri notes that he is in his NPC uniform which makes her more angry.  A guy (presumably Otonashi) and Hinata walk down a hall.  Otonashi asks why Hinata has an uniform like that to which Hinata explains.  Hinata remembers a truck and him getting in the way.  Then he wakes up in a strange school area and he meets the Student Council President.  She advises Hinata to get to class to which he does.  As he enters class and saying that this isn’t his school, everyone seems to recognize him.  Hinata, confused, runs away to the school roof (they let kids to go to the roof? thats retarded) He yells, asking what kind of place is this.  Then a girl kicks him off the school.  Hinata still suprised that he fell down is even more surpised to find himself alive again, next to his infirmary bed however, he meets a girl.  Hinata yells at her for kicking him off the school and tells her that he could have died, the girl responds to him that he would have jumped off anway.  A teacher arrives to tell them to get to class, the girl tells Hinata to follow her.  Back on the roof, the girl tells Hinata, this is afterlife.  She tells him that people usually remember the last seconds of life and end up here.  She proposes that they form a group. Hinata asks who she is though.  She tells him that she is human but Hinata asks if everyone else is not.  She says to him that thats correct (after a few guesses) and that the teachers really aren’t people either.  Humans exist in this world, but those who act like regular people are basically decorations.  With that lesson behind them, Hinata introduces himself, and the grl introduces herself as Yuri.  Hinata finds that particular name “yucky” because that was his mother’s name, he decides to call Yuri, Yurippe.  Yuri finds that name for her disgusting, and the two now try to find God.  Thats the First Chapter

Chapter 2: Hinata questions just how to bring God out.  Yuri proposes the idea of killing everyone in the school.  Hinata finds that plan ghastly and they go to the roof to come up with a less brutal method.  While trying to come up with an idea, the Student Council President arrives to get them to get to class.  Hinata a take this moment to ask SCP about God.  Hinata’s questions are ineffective and now he tries to get personal.  He asks something about love and asks the president to marry him, to which Yuri kicks him, off the roof.  Hinata wakes up again in the infirmary to see Yuri once again sitting near him.  They have a little arguement about not being able to die and something about love in this world (life after love?) Hinata’s stomache growls and they head to the cafeteria.  Yuri explains hat dead bodies still need some food, she also explains i you are content with life here, you will disappear (they need to sleep too).  Yuri heads to her dorm and Hinata heads back to his.  The dorms are for 2 students, Yuri kicked hers out and Hinata finds another kid in his dorm room named Ooyama.  Hinata notices that Ooyama has nothing interesting about him.  Next morning, Hinata jumps for Yuri as he misses the feeling of just being around a real person.  Suddenly, a gunshot is fired and the two head off to where the sound came from

Chapter 3: The duo arrive in the principals office to find a man with a gun took the principal hostage.  He demands to know what the hell is going on in this world.  The SCP, takes action and as they duo enter the room, the man with the gun has been stabbed through the chest.  The two leave, baffled about how the SCP pulled a move to kill a dude with a gun.  Yuri is distressed at this strange development.  Yuri and Hinata try to deduce if the SC Pres is God with her amazing abilities to spawn a blade from her arms, while debating over this idea, Hinata’s roomate, Ooyama finds the duo.  Yuri leaves, and Hinata tells Ooyama the horrifying things Yuri does to people (him).  Back in the dorm room, Hinata hatches a plan.

Chapter 4: Hinata’s idea to get God/Angel to reveal itself is to take the principle hostage, only this time, they have 2 people instead of that lone gunman.  And they have some access to convetional weapons.  Yuri is baffled by the idea Hinata came up with.  They pull off the plan and while they wait for the pres. too arrive, she arrives without warning and draws her wristblade onto Hinata.  Yuri threatens to kill the principle if she doesn’t let go of Hinata.  She decides to get rid of Yuri instead.  Hinata tries to fight back, but is put down by the pres.  Yuri then lets go of the principle only to pull her gun out again on the president’s temple.  However, pres does not stagger and mumbles “Hand Sonic” and a white blade forms on her wrists.  Hinata gets in the blades away to protect Yuri.  Then he wakes up again in the infirmary.  Then the two go off to dinner and decide that the council president is an Angel, with powers bestowed by God and the job to ensure order in this realm.  The two go off to their dorms and Hinata talks Ooyama about his hectic day of being hurt.  While talking Ooyama says that he knows that he is dead.

Chapter 5: Hinata tries to take Ooyama to meet Yuri who Ooyama has heard of doing terrible things to Hinata.  When they meet, Yuri is wondering why he is scared.  Hinata explains that Ooyama is scared of her.  Yuri then kicks Hinata off the roof (for the third time) yelling that its his fault for telling the violent actions done to his roomate.  Hinata wakes up to find out that Ooyama ran away due to seeing his roomate fall of the school, and now they have to find him.  Hinata then realizies: If Yuri keeps this sort of reckless attitude, no one is going to follow her

After telling her the fact about her leadership, she disbands this group and leaves.  Hinata leaves as well and then meets Ooyama again.  The two have a talk about Yuri’s leadership and her ideals.  Sorta gets kinda tedious to write for me, so lets leave it at they decide to get Yuri back to making a team again.  Hinata and Ooyama are like RPG characters.  Hinata finds Yuri and before anything happens, chapter ends.

Chapter 6: Hinata finds Yuri aggressively questioning Angel about the world.  She gets pulled off of Angel by a teacher, but Hinata steps in.  In that scrap, before Hinata intervened, Yuri yelled about no one knowing how she feels.  Hinata says he know how she feels but he gets his ass kicked.  After a vicious beating, Angel helps Hinata get up and apologizes for him being her scapegoat.  Yuri vows that she will uncover God from Angel.  The duo leave the room and find Ooyama running towards them.  Yuri explains that this was a ploy to draw Ooyama out (which is a lie).  Ooyama agrees to join the team.  Then scene shifts to the trio playing tennis.  Then, the tennis ball gets shot, and then we meet the dude with the gun from chapter 3.

Chapter 6.5:  Omake Chapter: Yuri just sees the boys’ room, only to find it completely boring.  Read it for yourself

Chapter 7: We see our new trio digging holes, out in the forest.  We see that our trio is doing this under the orders of the dude with the gun.  Flashback sequence shows us that the dude with teh gun doesn’t want to ally if the trio and shot Yuri across the face to prove it.  His plan is for them to dig a hole deep enough so they can bury Angel and make sure she never resurfaces.  Present time, they keep digging until Yuri notices that the dude is sleeping.  The trio closes in on the dude and take his gun, only to have another gun pulled on them too.  The trio runs after shooting the dude in the stomache.  Even with the hostilities, Yuri says she needs more people to join their cause, and so far, hes the only human not recuited (so far as we know).  Yuri then has an idea.  She says that she will challenge the gunman to a duel with Angel as their witness.  Angel after a few minutes of talking agrees, Yur also asks for them to have tea in their room after the quarell is over.  Now to give the dude the challenge note. 

Chapter 8:

Yuri decides to give a challenge note, the old fashion way, with an arrow.  The crew heads to a nice location and finds the gunman sleeping.  Then Yuri fires her arrow….only that she fired it too low and hit the dude in the head.  The crew backs out and they wait for the dude near the location where she challenged him too.  Yuri is on the road, Angel is watching and the duo is hiding behind the bushes.  The dude happens to sneak up on the guys instead of Yuri.  He demands to know why Angel is here too, Hinata tells him that she is here to observe the fight.  The dude then takes his place and readies himself to fight Yuri.  Both take 10 steps, they turn aaaand….chapter ends

Chapter 9: Both challengers take the shot, but it seems that Yuri got shot.  Ooyama and Hinata are worried but Yuri smiles to them.  Gun dude pulls the last shot, only for Angel to intercept that shot.  Angel pulls her blade, and tells him to give up the weapon.  At that moment, Yuri gets back up and shoots the dude in the head.  Everything was planned and now Angel must do what Yuri says. 

Chapter 10: The gunman wakes in Angel’s room with our trio and Angel near the bed.  Yuri comments how disappointing this is, she thought Angel’s roo would be more extragavant.  Yuri comments on Angel’s clothes and well and asks the gun dude to help her, literally, sniff out something unnusual.  The dude laughs at this and says that Yuri is one interesting person and asks her name.  She responds, and he responds with his name: Chaa.  Chaa remarks that Yuri reminds him of his wife, which catches everyone offguard.  Chaa was somewhat married in highschool and left his home to find paradise with his love.  In the end, they were seperated and he ended up here.  Yuri asks Chaa to finally join them.  Chaa seems to cry (not bawl, just silently cry) over the loss of his friends and love, but he, decides he can make his paradise here.  Now with 4 peopl, the crew head off. 

Yuri declares that she found something significant in Angel’s room and tells the guys to prepare for tomorrow, then they walk past someone extremely familiar. 

Yuri stops for a moment only to continue her walking.  Then the familiar girl looks back…

Thats 10 chapters for you

I really like the manga, gives some real plot to uncover something, unlike the anime.  Yuri is a lot more appealing, less of the lazy bitch in the anime who just orders people around.  I think i find her more pretty here too.  Lemme say that we get to know why Chaa is here, this dudes in highschool? question is over….i guess.

Expect monthly post!
