Hate to be the kind of asshole that says this kind of stuff, but; read the manga, we actually get to see somebody make something.

Okay, so I found this in the characters page for Otonashi:

  • Ironic Hell: After sending away his friends and remaining in the afterlife it becomes this when Kanade disappears.

I'm not sure if this is valid or not.

Oh, and a very amusing pic I've found:

It sounds far too speculative but stated as fact. We don't know whether Otanashi remains behind.

That extra segment is non-canon if I remember correctly.

Yeah, I wish we can get some concrete answer on that.

I don't know what to make of the stinger.

It's just an alternate end, VN-style.
Producer X Rin
So it's not necessarily the canon.

I had this theory that the whole world is under some kind of time loop. So basically, after a certain period of time, like a year or three, the whole world kinda rewind, with new characters, aka newly dead teenagers. I'm pretty sure this doesn't make much sense, though.

Well, it's implied that "freshmen" keep appearing in Purgatory High. And I'm pretty sure time is wonky in that place.

I've seen theories that Otonashi is the one who developed the Angel Player thing because time loop.
"Well, I've always thought he was cute, but as a kouhai." "Yes, but only as a kouhai."
Producer X Rin
I like that theory, although I'm not sure if it makes sense.

Well, there is some time distortion thing going on. It is impossible for Kanade to be dead before Otonashi, after all.
Conceptually Frameworked
I always assumed that was because he was lost. A soul wondering in limbo till he stumbled across this world.

But of course there is no reason to assume time in the afterlife maps exactly to time in the real world. The question is then "How do they intersect?".

Could it be that time does not flow in equal speed for everyone?

Time dilation.

Ooh, would you look at that, it's reairing (kinda) on my cable! Fuck yes! I watched this on a streaming site and the quality was kind of crap. This time, I will be watching an officially translated and high def on big screen.

cool
Producer X Rin
Finished rewatching.

You know, I'm more and more convinced that Otonashi really did develope the Angel Player. Also, if Naoi is right, the world chooses its God...could it be that Otonashi became the God of the world?

Depends on whether he stayed behind or chose to move on to his next life.

Dammit I'm tearing up typing that sentence, it made me suddenly flash back to the last few episodes.
Producer X Rin
Considering his despaired reaction, I doubt that he moved on. Jesus, I depressed myself...

Okay, you know what, that's it, I can't take it anymore. I have to write an expanded novelization fanfic on this series. Yes, I already have a fanfic to work on, but I can make a room for one more, damn it! ;_;

There're two different epilogues that are mutually exclusive. One where he stays behind as the student council president and guides souls to find peace. The other where he meets Kanade in RL.

I started re-watching this. I thought that the short length would bother me more, especially after seeing Key's storylines with many more episodes to work with, like in CLANNAD. But that isn't the case, the character interactions make the show, so even with the story being somewhat short there's never a dull moment. So yes, now I see what could be possible, but I can't criticize the show for how it handled the number of episodes it had.

I started reading the Manga, but there doesn't seem to be much out yet. Took me a while to get used to how Hinata was drawn in it. My main criticism is the band stuff seems mostly yuri pandering or something. I never really found the band segments all that interesting anyway.

It really makes you appreciate how much work goes into making a single gun, and that they really need a team that big to crank out weapons and ammo at any decent rate.

I'd like to see how they acquire the principal's office, considering invading that was one of the first things they did.

Love the concept and got hooked from the beginning, the Mundane Afterlife is an interesting concept and I like Otto so far (can't spell his full name correctly right)... I felt that those students find it too hard to move on :(

[up] I really want to be happy about that, even though I can't even imagine how long it will take before we see an English version.

But the news that it's Visual Artsí 20th anniversary sounds interesting, even if I can't imagine what could actually come out of that for us either.

Almost as good as the Little Busters adaptation news. Though could be better than that considering that IT'S NOT THE PERFECT ANIMATION STUDIOOOOO
