Okay, okay. I know I write a lot about Angel Beats, but that’s because I just have so much to say about it. It’s one of those animes that’s stuck with me. Another thing that came into my head that made me realize once more how great Angel Beats is, was Iwasawa and her chasing after her dreams.
You know…. in life there’s those moments when you’re just smacked in the face with something unexpected.
