Let’s get into details now! ヾ(´^ω^)ノ♪
Contents ε=ε=┏( >_<)┛
This anime is about a school life story, but it takes place after death. There are 2000 people that go to this high school (Tenjo Gakuen) and live in there. The people who are sent from this world had a miserable life or didn’t have a good school life before they passed away in the real world. As they enjoy spending a good school life in this world, they will enter a setup called NPC that was created for the people, in advance before their death. They are not real humans but setup as characters. They all have personalities, characters, different looks, different voices, and so on. It is not like RPG game characters, you can talk to them, and actually have a conversation with them. Besides the setup characters, there are many people who are real humans there too. Some are able to remember their life before they passed away, some are unable to remember their past before they passed away.
People who can remember their past created SSS which can fight angels. They always try to beat Kanade Tachibana who is the head of the school council. She is called Angel by SSS.
Yuzuru Otonashi is the main character in this anime who comes to this world. He is one of those that doesn’t have a memory of his life before he passed away. As not knowing anything, he meets this girl Yuri Nakamura who is a leader of the SSS, she asks him to join the SSS. On the other hand, Yuzuru also notices the presence of Kanade Tachibana as an angel, and he gets so confused with what is going around him. He also doesn’t have a memory of his past, and he decides to fight with SSS….. But how will this story go and what will happen to him, and to the real humans in there?

Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
It is comedy school life story! What a difference from a normal comedy, the school life is that they are all dead person.(((( ；ﾟДﾟ))) Did you get surprised? Don’t get the wrong idea this anime is not a zombie or ghost way! They are cute characters in this story. So don’t worry! Actually, it is a sad story so you might want to keep a box of tissues by you in case you shed some tears at the end. I cry easily with watching anime, drama, and movie so….. Who will be next me? ｡+ﾟ(ﾟ´Д`ﾟ)ﾟ+
Anyway since they have been dead, they can’t die anymore. You know that right? If somebody gets stabbed with a knife, they would react like it didn’t even happen….. Yes, this world is like that, SSS is fighting but nobody will die. I didn’t categorize this anime as action anime, the fighting is not the main reason for them. They do school events, tests like they are a normal student in the real world. It is sad to think they are dead already, doing school life, and they are still fighting. That is why this sorrow feeling will get you at the end to make you feel emotional. This anime separates into comedy part and emotional part good.
Music is good too. This anime plays music on right timing to get the viewers emotional! I think from every way, you can get to enjoy it well!
