  "My Soul, Your Beats!" is the opening theme song for the anime Angel Beats!. It is performed by Lia. It is included in a single with the closing theme song "Brave Song".

Lyrics/Composition: Maeda Jun
Vocals: Lia (LiSA for Episode 04 Version)


The song tells the story of a person who has lived a simple life and bearing witness to people who come and go as that person stays as a mere witness of it.

In the opening credits that go along this song, it shows Angel (Tenshi/Kanade) playing the piano in different locations in the afterlife school as the different characters from the series are introduced. Within the latter half of the sequence, 11 flashes of the current episode's events are shown, although slightly obscured by the effects used and the speed of display, and moments after 2 flashes of Otonashi scenes. After that, the school is shown to have orbs of light appearing and floating to the sky, as Yuri (Yurippe) and Angel (Tenshi/Kanade) appear before the sequence ends.

Another version of the credits focus on Yui, performing the same song as if it was her audition performance for the role of leader of the band Girls Dead Monster (Girls DeMo). This version also edits out all of the appearances by Yuri, Angel (Tenshi/Kanade) and Otonashi, replaced by Yui herself.

It is presumed that the title of the song is called it due to the fact that *SPOILER ALERT* Angel (Tenshi/Kanade), has Otonashi's heart in the time before her death, My soul (Angel's Soul), Your Beats! (Otonashi's Heartbeats). *SPOILER END*

Mezamete wa kurikaesu nemui asa wa

  • The scene involving the "orbs of light" are not a foreshadowing of the final events in the series but a visualization of the last few lines of the song. Nonetheless, this display can also be seen in Clannad, a visual novel and anime series also produced by visual novel studio Key.
  • Fans speculate that the song pertains to Angel, primarily because she is focused throughout the sequence. Others, on the other hand, say that it was Yuri referred to in the song, as Angel never wore a tie (instead she wears a ribbon).
  • Shortly before the end, if you look closely at Angel, you can see white wings in her back. Hinting on why the SSS call her "Angel".
