Earlier today, the 30th of January 2015, preorders have opened for Angel Beats!-1st beat-! The game is scheduled to launch on the 29th of May, 2015. The game will be releasing both as a first release edition and a regular edition, with the former of the two containing a copy of the unreleased Girls Dead Monster single: Million Star! A bunch different retailers in Japan are also offering pre-order bonuses; mostly ecchi character goods. You can find a list of all the preorder bonuses on Key’s website here. (NSFW SKETCHES WITHIN)
Since most of our readership live outside of Japan, you may be interested to know that amiami are also accepting preorders. amiami will happily ship anywhere in the world, but the only catch is that they are yet unable to guaruntee whether you will receive the first edition or regular edition release. They will be allocating first edition copies either based on a random draw, or a first-come first-serve basis, so you’ll want to be quick.
If you prefer the certainty of knowing you’re getting the first release edition, then you may want to consider ordering from Japan via a proxy. More and more preorder listings for the game are appearing online as I’m writing this post, so I encourage the community to share whatever offers for the game they can find in the discussion below. Hopefully this will help readers decide where they should order the game from. But please make sure you follow the forum guidelines and refrain from posting NSFW images in the topic; I’d like to keep this page clean.
Let us know below whether you’ve ordered a copy for yourself or not!
