Angel Beats! – OVA

Stairway to Heaven

Set between episodes four and five, Yuri comes up with ‘Operation High Tension Syndrome’, encouraging the other members to behave as wildly as possible, so they would appear to be enjoying school without disappearing. Yuri hopes this will make Angel wonder what is happening and lead them straight to God, threatening the others with no food for a week if they fail. They attempt this by acting excited in class, snacking heavily and culminating with a huge sports meet. However, when Angel comes to inspect them, everyone is too tired, leaving only Shiina who expresses how cute her doll is. They later follow Angel down to an underground base where they assume they will find God, but instead only find an underground greenhouse belonging to the defunct gardening club, which Angel decided to check after hearing Shiina’s cute comment. Annoyed with the results, Yuri forces everyone to starve for a week. Continue reading “Angel Beats! – OVA”
