Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

Angel Beats VN or anime?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in either reading the VN or watching the anime, but I don't know which I should pick. I could watch the anime right away if I choose to do so, but I've heard that people generally think it's too short, with lack of backstories and whatnot. Is that issue addressed in the VN? I heard it has new content, but I didn't find much information about what that content actually is.
I also read that the story in the VN only goes up to episode 9 of the anime series, which means that the last 30-or-so percent of the main story is missing? Since it's called "1st beat", I'm guessing they plan to follow it up with "2nd beat" later on, but it's already been four years since 1st beat was released and it seems like they haven't made any announcements regarding a sequel yet.
Another downside to choosing the VN would be the fact that I'd have to wait until either my Japanese has improved to the point where I can read it in the original language, or until the English version is released sometime in the future.

Should I just go ahead and watch the anime now, or would I have a better experience if I wait and read the VN when I am able to do so?

Just watch the anime obviously seeing that judging from episode 1 in that they'd write three characters route in that there's a lot f characters and obviously it mean that we'll have a very long wait if you want to see it finished, and not to mention that there's no word in regard of volume 2 development.

wait, the vn is cancelled?! D: Why??

It was never officially cancelled, however, for a VN that would supposedly consist of multiple beats (4 or 6), there has been precious little progress in making them. This may be because Jun Maeda is suffering from health problems. As such, until he recovers, it may be that no sequels will release.

According to this vndb thread (linking already deleted tweet by Maeda) it's something called idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. From what I understand from the Wikipedia page, it is pretty dangerous.
