PA Works, the studio notable for creations as “Another” and Angel Beats, has secured a time slot for Dengeki’s 20th anniversary events – the details are withheld, yet the studio more than likely has something huge.
Speculation regarding a new Angel Beats! project have been tossed up, down, and all around for the last several months – immense hype was built up by Dengeki for a major announcement which merely turned out to be a Tenshi 1/8 PVC figure. Yet even with one announcement down, more specifics were emerging on other fronts – such as the essential, yet not actual, confirmation of an Angel Beats! visual novel by Visual Arts’.
Furthermore, despite the continued confusions, a few items were ever-certain – Angel Beats! is a highly popular series, and no one is ready to believe that it truly will end as it stands.
In either case, as anticipated, PA Works has now confirmed to be making their presence at Dengeki’s 20th anniversary celebration – their most recent upcoming work, Tari Tari, will hit in only a few weeks, thus one will likely need not worry about it as Dengeki’s bash will be October 20th. This leaves three possibilities for what PA Works’ planned showings could be at Dengeki’s 20th anniversary affair – the future could hold an entirely fresh series, something regarding the Hanasaku Iroha film, or a much awaited, and highly hoped, Angel Beats addition.
Seemingly yet again, many an otaku’s soul is left awaiting what hopefully proves to be more beats.
