Angel Beats! OP – Complication (Durarara!! OP2 Parody)

What do you get when you combine one of the hottest shows of the season with one of the coolest themes and most distinct opening sequences? The best of both worlds in this exceptionally well-done MAD movie for Angel Beats inspired by Durarara‘s stylistic touches and featuring ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D’s “Complication”. With both of these awesome series coming to an end in the next couple of days, now seemed like the perfect time to post about this. If you haven’t seen this yet, you might be surprised how talented (i.e. hardcore) some Japanese fans are. As a bonus, this video even helps you get Angel Beats’ character names straight if you had any difficulty doing to. Of course, it’s even COOLER if you do a side by side comparison with the original and sync them up, for which I’ve provided the option to do so below. Now how badass is that?

    Ah, I’ve been meaning to get around to watching Durarara. This is pretty cool.

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:12 pmPrecise Moment

    Spectacular, its hard to believe both durarara and angel beats are coming to and end already but i look forward to the summer shows.

    • June 23, 2010 at 9:35 pmamado

      at the same date too

      • June 23, 2010 at 11:42 pmdivine

        Actually, Durarara ends tomorrow and Angel Beats on Friday. The simulcast for Durarara is one day behind.

      • June 24, 2010 at 3:03 amamado

        well the subs for durarara and angel beats are usually released in saturday or late friday night in my area…

      • June 24, 2010 at 3:59 pmEspada

        last episodes of durarara will be released with the dvd’s

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:14 pmRei

    Oh man, I LOVE these MADs, they become increasingly better and more creative and high wow factor. But I think the best I’ve seen so far is the K-ON!! x Working!! one here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGQ3OE3GuqM
    But yeah, fantastic effort nonetheless and there’s Angel Beats! x K-ON!! ones too which work well as well. So inspiring :D

      oh wow, the army of chibi yuis was almost as cute as the army of chibi popuras!

    • June 23, 2010 at 7:33 pmdivine

      Yeah, that K-ON WORKING parody is really well done too. The marching Yui’s crack me up every time I see them.

    • June 23, 2010 at 7:45 pmmegalith

      Crap… You beat me to it…

      This really entertained me so much when I first saw it. I was saying “wow… that somehow works….”

      I miss stage6 back then they post HD MADs. I dunno if there’s anyway to download videos in niconico in HD.

    • June 23, 2010 at 9:55 pmunlisted

      Those are awesome. Mash-ups ftw

    • June 23, 2010 at 10:52 pmchingoo

      The only thing missing in the K-ON!xWORKING! is that with the chibi yui’s there is should be one thats off with the others :D
      (My friend pointed it out to me, but check out the working op and you’ll get what I mean)

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:16 pmIHM

    Oh! Pretty awesome!

    TK is the coolest character ever created!!

    • June 23, 2010 at 7:20 pmSora

      Yeah! Especially the last few episodes. Where he said “Knocking on heavens door” in english before shooting. Awesome :D

    • June 23, 2010 at 7:55 pmItachizame

      TK is awesome.

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:18 pmSora

    This is so cool. I got goosebums watching it. Lol

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:24 pm[SiNaN]

    Wow! These are just hilarious.

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:35 pmchidori3souske

    Whoa!!! That was so awesome!!! I really envy those talented Japanese XD

  • June 23, 2010 at 7:46 pmDa5id

    Oh cool! You’re showing MADs now? Coincidentally, Angel Beats and Durarara are two of the five shows I’m watching right now (the other three being Bleach, Naruto, and FMA), and to see them being put together like this is just awesome.

    Although, I do have just one gripe: Noda and IZAYA?! That’s the worst parallels ever! In that they have none!

    • June 23, 2010 at 7:52 pmdivine

      I just post about anything anime or Japanese related that’s on my mind. This is a blog after all. :)

      Oddly, Naoi was left out of the freeze frames. :\

      • June 24, 2010 at 4:31 amviral

        Considering the preview in it, it was propably made right after when Naoi’s episode aired. So the creator didn’t know if he’ll be a good guy or not.

  • June 23, 2010 at 8:01 pmyuukii

    man i envy them japanese people xD with their insane amount of skill… in practically everything… they’ve got anime, MADs, their pretty decent at sports, they got the latest tech (or at least one of the most recent)… もうう!! 羨ましい!!!

  • June 23, 2010 at 8:28 pmtomoyocorp

    great job great job this is very nice mad i love this video

  • June 23, 2010 at 8:55 pmMrRei

    I’ve been holding off Durarara.. maybe it’s time to watch ^^

  • June 23, 2010 at 10:27 pmZaku Fan

    Yeah this is a great one, the only thing that could be improved would be if they could take out the cello when Otonashi says his “Your life should be real” line.

  • June 23, 2010 at 10:30 pmKurerian

    that’s amazing i watched them both at the same time ( the audio synched) and i must say the people that did that… did a great job and i couldn’t help but applaud… :D

  • June 23, 2010 at 11:43 pmAznCoffee

    Hmm, this was good, but I wouldn’t call this “exceptionally well-done”. xD;

    The ‘cut and paste’ look on some parts and low-quality zooming were major faults D:

    • June 24, 2010 at 1:29 amAznCoffee

      Oh, but the part where the opening stops half way and the “dramatic summary”-part was very well done xDD

  • June 24, 2010 at 12:13 amciq666

    Wow. That’s all I can say.

  • June 24, 2010 at 12:27 amDawn

    Have to say, the awesome part of this is the well done inlet of the ‘previous episode’, meaning if it was ‘Durarara format’ this op would be the episode right after otonashi confronted the ‘evil’ Naoi.

  • June 24, 2010 at 1:15 amZenkaitheSlasher

    All I’m gonna say is this… some people have waaaay too much time on their hands, and this is really well done.

  • June 24, 2010 at 3:36 amoutcast

    To answer the

  • June 24, 2010 at 3:37 amoutcast

    question that is so fucking bad ass.

  • June 24, 2010 at 3:50 amRockmanshii

    The badass level is over 9000.

  • June 24, 2010 at 6:13 amKanpekiJan

    Damn, that’s well done. Not as awesome as the original but still. Having them run simultaneously is pretty awesome as well.

  • June 24, 2010 at 6:53 amYyi

    Oh gawd…that was 1min 50secs of pure orgasm. This just redefined ‘epic’ in my vocabulary.

  • June 24, 2010 at 8:54 amIsland Esper

    Shina and Tenshi last no *cries. I don’t really follow fan made intros. However the few that are posted her are great. I wish I had that much time and resources to play around.

  • June 24, 2010 at 8:55 am2bittersweet

    Japanese fans are the most hardcore group of people on the planet.

  • June 24, 2010 at 8:58 amchloesong92

    Wow, its so awesome especially to see it side by side.

  • June 24, 2010 at 9:34 amSirMuffin

    That was beyond badass!

  • June 24, 2010 at 10:17 amWindaerie

    This blog just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for the post! :)

  • June 24, 2010 at 10:28 amLiberta

    Wow, impressive indeedO_O

    Durarara and Angel Beats seem to fit very nicely =D

  • June 24, 2010 at 11:39 amAzuma

    Would love to see more parodies of the 2nd ending. I really like how the road/highway starts off fully colored and then sorta… turns into (flat? not really sure how to describe it just yet) background with the main characters scrolling past.

    Speaking of characters, I was hoping we’d see more of Kuzuhara since he seemed like such a fun character to have around.

  • June 24, 2010 at 12:14 pmPhilip

    that was totally sick, thanks for showing this

  • June 25, 2010 at 12:18 amXrtear

    I was wondering where that parody of Angel Beats X Durarara!! went off to, thanks Divine for the side to comparison. I still can’t get over how amazingly talented the person who made that parody is.

  • June 25, 2010 at 5:03 amrasone0104

    This is badass!!!!

  • June 25, 2010 at 10:44 amOrin

    I think some of you are too easily impressed

  • June 26, 2010 at 3:22 pmTenkou

    Totally awesome when seeing the videos in comparison. Nice parodies! Some of the names for the Angel Beats characters aren’t really that clear, but amazing none the less =) Wondering why parodies stemming from Durarara are so rampant now, but I like it! Kind of fun to see how hardcore anime fans can get at stuff like these haha.

  • June 27, 2010 at 1:27 amimerik

    Running those 2 videos at the same time was pretty damn sweet. Divine, your insight for that was on point. Though they coulda put Noda with Shizou and Naoi with Izaya.
