The official Japanese website for upcoming anime Angel Beats! is now streaming five promotional videos on its video site, which are mostly series of stills that introduce the main characters and crew. The images show off the character designs of noted illustrators Na-Ga (Clannad, Little Busters!) and Katsuzou Hirata (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Cosplay Complex) and introduce the rest of the staff, including Satoki Iida (He Is My Master) on music and Seiji Kishi (My Bride is a Mermaid) taking the reins as director.
The upcoming anime Angel Beats! has drawn many comparisons to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya for its characters, but very few details have been released other than the names of the staff and a few images.
The story details revealed so far show that Angel Beats! takes place in a high school in the afterlife, where a young man with amnesia named Otonashi meets a girl named Yuri, who intends to defy the will of God.
Angel Beats! airs next spring in Japan.
