Turns out that Angel Beats premiered ten years ago today…
This was an important show in my development as an otaku. I’d been kinda getting into anime and watching stuff on Netflix, and while I’d enjoyed most nothing had actually clicked. I don’t know why I picked Angel Beats, but within a few episodes I was seriously hooked and ended up marathoning it across two days.
When my wife got home from work, I convinced her to sit down and give it a try. And even though I’d just finished it hours before – I sat right down and rewatched it. My first ever rewatch, and one of only a handful of immediate rewatches. (The last immediate rewatch that I can recall is Laid Back Camp – two years ago in the Winter 2018 season.)
So, a question for you… What show struck you like a bolt of lightning? What show changed you in a measurable way? Drop a comment and let’s chat!
