Angel Beats! Introduction and Opening

Tenshi on the piano

Angel Beats! (エンジェルビーツ) is set in the afterlife and follows the activities of the SSS (死んだ世界戦線, Shinda Sekai Sensen, Afterlife War Front) as they fight against God. The script is written by Jun Maeda who worked on the visual novels Air and Clannad. Therefore, we can expect to see an interesting plot line which goes above and beyond the plots of most other series.

The opening song is My Soul, Your Beats!, sung by Lia (who sung Air's beautiful OP - Tori no Uta). At first the song seems quite calm with a lovely piano backing track but soon enough it speeds up. The opening itself seems to focus on Tenshi playing the piano (in sync to the song) and introducing all of the characters, before showing clips from the second episode. The CD single is set to be released on the 26th of May.

Update: The opening changes slightly with each episode based on the events that will take place within the episode, this can be previews or even a complete change!
