82% Brilliant

There are pros and cons to the evaluation of this anime. I personally appreciate this anime. Because this anime has overwhelming drawing power, a beautiful background, inspiring music, and perfect OP.

Of course, if you are told that there is no doubt about the story and the world view, you may have to admit. But that is trivial. A story is only one standard for evaluating anime. Other than that, I highly appreciate this anime, which has an amazing drawing, background, and music. I want you to watch it.

2. Synopsis

Otonashi awakens only to learn he is dead. A rifle-toting girl named Yuri explains that they are in the afterlife, and Otonashi realizes the only thing he can remember about himself is his name. Yuri tells him that she leads the Shinda Sekai Sensen (Afterlife Battlefront) and wages war against a girl named Tenshi. Unable to believe Yuri’s claims that Tenshi is evil, Otonashi attempts to speak with her, but the encounter doesn’t go as he intended.

Otonashi decides to join the SSS and battle Tenshi, but he finds himself oddly drawn to her. While trying to regain his memories and understand Tenshi, he gradually unravels the mysteries of the afterlife.

3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime

This anime comes with a few military terms related to fighting angels. However, most of the daily conversations are based on student life, but Japanese-specific phrases and idioms frequently appear. Although it may be difficult for students to use enough, this is a good content to learn. There are surprisingly few terms related to the story, but it should be noted that the latter half of the story is difficult to develop. From the perspective of learning Japanese, students and youth speak the majority of the lines, and it is fortunate for Japanese learners that honorifics and slang do not appear. However, since the terms that appear are diverse from military relations to love, gags, etc., I will tell you again that it is an animation suitable for advanced users.
