I bet they're all watching because of Tachibana. Hands off, she's mine! Just stick with the Haruhi wannabe.

Impressive though.

Glad to see it doing good. Hopefully Sentai or someone else will license it. Definitely a buy for me.

fudge me... I didn't realise the show was that popular.

I enjoy it so I'm glad it's getting good ratings.

I was casually enjoying the series, but I laughed my ass off at episode 5. Definitely hoping for a US release now.

I agree, hope the show ended up being more then 13 episodes though. Something like Toradora, which we thought was going to be a 13 episode mediocre romantic comedy series which turned out to be a 25 episode masterpiece of the decade or at least of the last 5 year.

I really laughed a lot on episode 5, Loved the "rocket chair" and how they played in slow motion after wards was a touch genius.

I must agree that Tachibana is very appealing, both in looks and in character. she is like Yuki but with emotions. I can see most Yuki fans falling for her.

I also must say that the Pink haired girls is quickly becoming a favorite character, She is very cute at time and insanely funny. Example: "She is playing the girl that has to go to the bathroom every minute" main character "what an idiot". The way she takes things literally is must too funny.

Good show, I expected it to be good since it is a Key series. I like Tenshi too. Yuri is not the best main chara though. Iwasawa was pretty good, but she's gone now. I wonder where this series is going though.

Ah TK~

GET CHANCE AND LUCK!

(also, it's interesting to see this do so well in the season Noitamina's ratings drop. I wonder if it's the same audience? Those who were watching Noitamina are now watching Angel Beats. 4.9% means you're reaching beyond the typical otaku audience)

Here's hopes maybe this is one of the rumored titles aniplex is supposed to be bringing over... It would be nice to see a swift release.
