Background Information

Angel Beats! (エンジェルビーツ! Enjeru Bītsu!) is a 13-episode Japanese anime television series produced by P.A. Works and Aniplex and directed by Seiji Kishi. The story was originally conceived by Jun Maeda, who also wrote the screenplay and composed the music with the group Anant-Garde Eyes, with original character design by Na-Ga; both Maeda and Na-Ga are from the visual novel brand Key, who produced such titles as Kanon, Air, and Clannad. The anime aired in Japan between April 3 and June 26, 2010. The story takes place in the afterlife and focuses on Otonashi, a boy who lost his memories of his life after dying. He is enrolled into the afterlife school and meets a girl named Yuri who invites him to join the SSS—an organization she leads which fights against God. The SSS fight against the student council president Angel, a girl with supernatural powers.

Standing in the Battledome

As a verse it is not very powerful. Some of the SSS have peak human stats and are quite good with guns and HtH. Although it could be considered broken for the fact that most characters have immortality, making them revive each time they are killed (the OP has to specify if this takes effect). The verse also has Kanade Tachibana or "Tenshi" who is a bullet timer with an array of attacks ranging from blades, sound attacks, clones, and barriers.
