You didn’t read that wrong.
After many years of want with no new content in the Angel Beats! universe, the fans can finally get more of that wonderful Yui-nyan they so desire. Ignored no longer, tried and true fans of this magnificent series are set to be blessed with another dose of magical Key feels!
Key has taken into consideration many things that they learned from the production of the first season and are looking to make various improvements going forward. In interview, Key stated that many fans found themselves, “despite finding the series perfect, feeling like the length and pacing of the show was in question.” To counteract this major issue, Key have promised not to let things drag on this time around and are shooting for a seven episode anime. Furthermore, critiques seemed to mention the title’s lack of character development- So, to balance things out, Key will be adding three times the cast with new characters designed by Itaru Hinoni’s moe.
The last bit of information we’ve gotten in this news release is that due to wishes for Key to work with its older animation studios, Toei Animation will be handling this next season. Concept art can be seen below.
UPDATE: A saito character has been confirmed! Check out the promotional art below.
