Feel the Beats, feel the sky

Angel Beats!


Both of this series, impressive. Truly a story that the viewer will remember for the rest of the life. Well, I can said the feeling of being touch and nostalgia had hit me for a topic like this. Haiz... too bad I had delayed since the "Beats" already end several weeks ago...

About Angel Beats, it take place in a high school here students learn to give up any lingering attachments they still have from life before continuing to an afterlife or reincarnation. While the injury or cause of death are gone, those in the afterlife school can still feel pain or other things as they did when they were alive, as well as dying again, only to awaken with no injures several minutes later. In this dimension, Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, a secret organization that rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi(Kanade), the chairperson of the student council for the world after death, battles against the SSS members. SSS members utilize armed weaponry to battle it out against the angels harnessing supernatural powers. They believes that anyone who follows Angel's orders and behaves like a normal student at the school will eventually disappear and pass on. However, those who fulfill their dreams in the afterlife will pass on as well. They have to keeping their fight on to survive and rebels against god's unfair.

Phuh~ just now was a long one. About Sola... Yorito Morimiya, who is a young boy attending high school. He loves taking pictures of the sky at any time of day and any time of the year. One day, Yorito decides to take a picture of the sunrise overlooking the bay, but is deterred when he meets a strange girl trying to force a vending machine that stole her money to give her what she tried to buy - a can of tomato juice. ==" Yorito helps her with forcing the machine while attempting to strike up conversation with her, despite it being four in the morning. Yorito tells her why he is here, but by the time he has forced the can out of the machine, the girl has mysteriously vanished. That's the way the story starts.
At N
ight, Yorito leaves to buy groceries when it begins to rain and stops on the way home to wait for the rain to stop; while waiting, he runs into the strange girl he met from yesterday again. They talk longer this time and Yorito finally learns her name - Matsuri Shihou.

A few days later, Yorito goes looking for the girl in the old church and finds a man wielding a sword before Matsuri. After a display of Matsuri's astounding powers, Yorito discovers that she is in fact a creature known as a "Calamity of the Night" who has lived for centuries. She is being chased by someone who intends to kill her, but Yorito tries to protect her by bringing her back to his home which is when Yorito asks her to stay with him for the time being.

Hmm... now, both of this series build up a solid image in viewers mind for their fun and beautiful way slice of life. Em... I could said the character design did a good job thou... XD The "Beats" seems is more up to modernization having such technology, secret army basement, advance weapons, and something that interesting...

Intoduce here - the rock band "Girl Dead Monster". Remind me that I'm still follow up the "K-ON!!" downloads... without watching a single episode. Clearly that GDM is more suitable for me... LOL. There's for you, an afterlife school life full of prank, adventure,stories and imagination.

Sola sora Sola sora... somehow like a fairy tail or bed time story like feeling for me. Jokes? Not really much... Prank?? Em... less... Cuteness? Er... Matsuri. XD Slice of life, supernatural, cultural and tradition would be more likely. Actually for this series, the plot seems normal. But once you try to watch it, you'll know something is interesting and different from other anime series. The background picture, OST, music, seiyuu... all in one, they seems have fate and destiny to took part in this. It's simplify that you simply amazed and touch. A simple and meaningful anime. I would said it was a very well produce anime in the vintage of 2007. And it's also one of the best anime rated for that year.

Well, between this 2 amazing series, similarities exist for me, is the message "live your life to the extend". Yes, I wanna enjoy my life in joy, in busyness, some kind of silly trouble, even in tears. I'm grateful that God grant me a normal life. All kind of emotions, motions, family, friends, relationships, words... I love it. Although my life will come to end, but I don't wanna lose even one second. They're simply my precious treasure that God gave me in human form.

As like in Angel Beats! and Sola... there was a sad goodbye, but another energetic opening and starting line is waiting for us. We - human, treasure our life no matter short or long. Love the others, love ourself, love our enemies, love everything. Don't give up!! That's the only way we could build our euphoria world and our destiny. I believe~
