* Chaa is a pretty good indicator; in the novel, he reveals he had a ''wife'', plus he know fairly much about guns. These are generally not traits you see in teenagers.

* All of the characters died peacefully at age 60-90 either by disease or old age, the reason they went to the Angel Beats Purgatory or Limbo is that they have one thing in common: they have an unfulfilling childhood and teenage life, and wanted to reexperience youth, to have friends again and reexperience school life and wanted to be teenagers again. They finally dissapear and go to Heaven after finally getting what they wanted.
* All of the dillemmas the characters experienced are in their childhood or teengage years, and they lived throughout their whole lives carrying that burden, and in the Purgatory they finally fixed it.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Kanade committed suicide so that she and Yuzuru could be TogetherInDeath]]]]
Let's face it, when you strip away the romantic-sounding language, [[spoiler:Kanade fell in love with a stranger's corpse because one of its organs happened to be transplanted into her]]. That's pretty crazy if you think about it. Plus, the series conveniently never explained just ''how'' [[spoiler:she still ended up dying young after the heart transplant]]. Maybe she [[spoiler:went full {{yandere}} in the end, and took her own life to join her beloved organ donor in the afterlife]].


* One bit of evidence to support this theory was that she said that the police arrived 30 minutes after the burglars first broke in. It's possible that once the burglars realized that none of the siblings would be of any use, they killed Yuri, who lived just long enough to realize that the police were too late. Then again, Yuri appears as an older teenager in Battlefront, whereas she was a young girl (probably late elementary school or early middle school) in the flashback.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:The afterlife has souls of people who lived and died in different time periods]]
Apart from Kanade getting Otonashi's heart, yet somehow making it to the afterlife before he did, none of the other characters knew or interacted with each other. in life. Some of it is easily explained, since Yui couldn't go outside, Naoi was kept at home and trained to replace his brother, and Otonashi didn't have any friends, but it's possible that all of them died at different time periods. One possible piece of evidence is how when Otonashi talks with Yui about soccer, he mentions that it became popular a while ago, which might suggest that Yui died some time before Otonashi.


* A2.) The Haruhi'verse isn't a pure reincarnation, but a different timeline. Yuri in the Haruhi timeline decided to become God, but messed up somehow causing a reset. Maybe even ended up keeping/dragging said abilities into her next reincarnation. The SoS Brigade are those who stuck with her till the end. Kyon = Otanoshi and Kanade = Yuki are obvious. Ayato = Itsuki after some thinking about his hypnotism abilities and the Kyon/Itsuki ho-yay probably being vestigial/lingering memories of the previous reality. I suppose by process of elimination that makes Hinata = Mikiru.

There’s no actual question asked, so Im not sure why its a ‘riddle,’ but here’s the summary: A person travels to Hell, and they see a table of people tormented with spoons / chopsticks which are too long to reach one’s mouth, so they are essentially starving for all eternity. When they travel to Heaven, they see the exact same eating utensils. The only difference is the people are feeding each other, rather than trying to feed themselves.

The school is kind of similar to this. When we meet the characters, we’re told of an epic battle to win the chance to see God. Except, none of that has actually anything to do with the school at all. The school gives spirits the chance to live out their ideal experience which they didn’t get in life. That’s it.

All the fighting, weapons manufacturing, etc. That’s all the characters’ invention. None of that needs to happen at all. As a result, the characters become their own worst enemies, because they chose to do all that.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Yuri got the idea of forming the SSS from reading or watching Haruhi Suzumiya before she died]]
The similarities between the SSS in Angel Beats and the SOS Brigade in Haruhi Suzumiya almost make the SSS look like a total rip off, but it makes total sense in-universe if Yuri actually got the idea of forming the SSS in the afterlife from reading and/or watching Haruhi Suzumiya back when she was alive.

[[spoiler:Dunno if I'm just stating the obvious here, but is wasnt explicitly stated or anything. He denys knowlage of God when Yuri asks about it, but he could simply be playing dumb. He also dissappears, obviously Yuri's gunfire wasnt going to do a damn thing in the world, and I doubt he would just up an move on just because of it. He's also voiced by [[AkiraIshida Kaworu]].]]

And that someone is most likely Asuka, taking the form of Yuri. Her antagonist is obviously Rei (who's part angel), metamorphosed into Tenshi. Shinji is split into 3 forms - Hinata is ButtMonkey Shinji, Otonashi is Ideal Shinji and Naoi gets all the angst as well as the [[Creator/MegumiOgata the voice]]. And the boy representing Angel Player program marking the end of everything is obviously [[AkiraIshida Kaworu]]

[[WMG: Purgatory is actually a [[{{Inception}} dream]]. (Warning; fanfic-like wall-o-text incoming)]]
After a number of train crash survivors are dug out of a tunnel, an unconsious certain would-be-medical student survives and keeps living life, eventually graduating and becoming a doctor. He falls in love with someone, perhaps one of the nurses at his hospital, but she dies shortly after, leaving him heartbroken and bitter.
