The characters I will look at are: Yuri, Hinata, Otonashi, Angel, Yuri, and at the end where Yuri tells him and Otonashi to leave her behind, Are there any romantic relationships between any of the characters in Angel Beats. Angel Beats! > if kanade said "i love you" then she will be obliterated in an instant since her passion is concluded so she didn't say it. Kanade Tachibana (立華 かなで, Tachibana Kanade also known as Angel) is one of even in skirmishes with the SSS which usually end up with her being injured. Kanade helped him fight Naoi and saved Otonashi and the SSS from being.
Her death causes Otonashi to lose the will to live, but later inspires him to become a doctor. During the train crash, Otonashi was shown to have become good friends with fellow survivor, Igarashi. Igarashi was by Otonashi's side when he died. In the Afterlife, Hinata is his best friend though his close often flirtatious way of acting around Otonashi causes the latter to wonder if Hinata is actually gayand Naoi is also close to Otonashi, looking up to him as an older brother.
Their closeness was demonstrated when the pair sided with Otonashi in his plans to help everyone pass on, taking his side over Yuri's. Kanade has by far the strongest relationship with Otonashi in the Afterlife. Whilst they started off on opposite sides, and originally served as enemies, their relationship eventually developed into one of mutual love. The two were even willing to remain in the Afterlife forever if it meant they would stay together.
It's later revealed that Otonashi's heart was what saved Kanade's life after his death, and the sole reason for her placement in the Afterlife.
Yuri also shows a few discrete signs of liking Otonashi in parts of the anime. Otonashi for his part respected and admired her, and there are a few small signs that he might like her as well. However, their relationship was ultimately platonic and non-romantic, but they stayed close friends.
Otonashi credits her with his happiness in the afterlife as she was the first person who approached him when he came.

It is also that Otonashi may have received an indirect kiss from Iwasawa in Episode 3 of the anime. Depending upon the choices made by the player, he could become an idiot, a jerk, homosexual, lesbian addict, or retain his anime personality.
Since this mechanism affects the overall story-line, other characters will react or behave differently to Otonashi depending on the chosen personality. Whilst there are many options to explore three main character routes exist in the first game Yui, Matsushita and Iwasawa each with their own unique traits and endings. Trivia Edit The kanji in Otonashi's last name means "no sound". His first name, on the other hand, means "to bind strings".
Otonashi can be inferred as one of the oldest members of the battlefront. The only other known person around a similar age was Masami Iwasawa who was revealed to be a third-year student in the Angel Beats Heavens Door Manga series. Otonashi doesn't have any regrets, the reason why he appeared in afterlife was because of Kanade.
It was explained in the last episode that Kanade's regret was that she couldn't thank the one who donated the heart for her. In order to leave afterlife, she have to meet him and be able to thank him. Otonashi is the only male character from SSS to appear during the epilogue scene, where he tried to tap Kanade's shoulder after recognizing the "My Song" tune she hummed.
Both of them were left in the Afterlife alone after their loved ones disappeared. However, Otonashi did not fall into despair and become an NPC like the other person at least, not explicitly. He was killed 3 times in the first 7 minutes of the first episode. The first time was when Tachibana stabs him in the chest with her Hand Sonic, the second was when Noda hits him times with his halberd, and the third was when he fell for the trap that was at the principal's office.
This is, considering that the fatal hits Noda gave him count as one death. No one except Kanade has called him by his given name, because he didn't tell the SSS his given name after recovering his memories.
He did, however, say his name at graduation. Why are there no reaction? It seems that he knows the full names of Yuri and Hinata, but the two didn't give their full names to him Hinata being his roommate and Yurippe being the leader may explain it.
Despite being one of the newest members of the SSS, Otonashi seems quite popular among them. Yuri and Iwasawa opened up to him about their pasts even after knowing him only for a short time, and Hinata befriended him quickly. In the second Drama CD, when Yuri announced that he was going to be participating in their activity, the others applauded. Other than Yuri, Otonashi is the only other person who had seen Shiina 's true character over cute things.
The name Angel Beats! It can also be inferred that he is fond of canned coffee, as that is the only beverage Otonashi is seen drinking, often more than once in each episode. Yuri also seems to know this, as she usually has a can of coffee with her while waiting for Otonashi. He is one of the characters with a revealed death, the others being Iwasawa and Hinata. Yuzuru arrives in the afterlife. Kanade and Yuzuru finally meet in person.
She stabs him in the chest and notices that Yuzuru doesn't have a heart. She then realizes who Yuzuru is.Angel Beats! - Saying Goodbye - Ending HD
Kanade moves on from the afterlife after thanking Yuzuru for the heart he gave her. As per Angel Beats!: Another EpilogueYuzuru remains in the afterlife for an undisclosed amount of time helping others move on. Yuzuru finally moves on from the afterlife. Yuzuru finally meets up with Kanade and they live happily ever after. Like I said, the series never really explains the finer details of the afterlife and what exactly happens when someone moves on. Hinata gives Yuri the nickname "Yurippe" because his mother's name was Yuri, and you can see how much that has stuck since.
They just get along so perfectly. In one scene, Hinata tries to test Angel to see if she has feelings by giving a fake confession to her. Yuri gets extremely angry and kicks him off of the roof.
Then they even joke about falling in love with each other at one point. In the anime, there is much much less interaction between the characters though. But the latest episode 11at the end where Yuri tells him and Otonashi to leave her behind, Hinata refuses and doesn't want to leave her alone. Yuri then comments about how she has appreciated the nickname.
Does Kanade really love Otonashi?
Point is, there was something between those two. However in the anime, Hinata gets together with Yui instead.
The novel and manga are not fully complete. Maybe they do have romance but then split up? But then that would have created turmoil in the SSS. Maybe they are just close friends and nothing else? Or maybe Hinata is just a ladies man and is cheating on Yui as soon as she leaves. He's exclusive only to the anime. Yuri seemed pretty eager to recruit him in the beginning.
And the second episode was totally reserved for those two.
