The Spring 2010 anime season already looks promising with Angel Beats! set to air in April.
A synopsis of the series via AniDB:
In a world after death, angels fight for their fate and their future. Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi, 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.
The premise already has me highly anticipating Angel Beats! Especially the general theme of humans fighting against Gods, which can be further expanded in countless ways.
Notable members include:
Character design – Na-Ga [Little Busters!]
Director – Seiji Kish [Seto no Hanayome]
Character design, Total drawing director – Yuuzou Hirata [Strike Witches]
With Jun Maeda leading the project and writing the script, the drama and emotional aspect of this series should be excellent. Pair this along with the fact that P.A. Works is doing the animation production (CANAAN had some amazing animation work), and you have yourself an upcoming star.
I’ve always loved the music in Key projects and this promo just further solidifies that sentiment.
