Angels of Death Season 1 Review
Angels of Death
殺戮の天使 (Satsuriku no Tenshi)


13-year-old Rachel "Ray" Gardner is taken to a hospital for counseling after witnessing a murder. However, she wakes up to find herself on the basement Floor B7 instead with no memories apart from her name and the reason she came to the hospital. A series of mysterious broadcasts and scribbled messages on the wall set the scene as a game where each participant is designated a floor of their own, and anyone who trespasses on another participant's floor has the chance to be killed.

TL;DR Review

Angels of Death is based on a video game, which was turned into a manga, then adapted again to an anime.

Angels of Death’s animation is stiff and lazy. There was minimal movement and the detail is almost non-existent.

The opening and ending themes, “Vital” by Masaaki Endoh and “Pray” by Haruka Chisuga, are actually better than what this anime deserved. In fact, most of the background pieces of music are quite good. Unfortunately, this is the only praise I can give this show.

Every character introduction is two dimensional that doesn’t lead the viewer to care for any of them. The first introduction, Rachel Gardner, is a soft-spoken blond Lolita girl that doesn’t seem to have any personality. The next introduction is Isaac Foster, a serial killer that constantly laugh maniacally and loudly as he tries to kill you. Another character that was introduced in the first two episodes is Daniel Dickens, a counselor who is obsessed with eyes. For a support character, he may have been given more backstory than either of the main characters.

This anime considered itself to be a horror anime, which may be true if you’re five, no offense to the five-year-old out there.

After 2 episodes of Angels of Death, I had enough. I can’t say if the game or the manga were any good, but the anime is horrendous. What surprises me is J.C.Staff is the studio that did this anime. I thought they have a higher standard, I was wrong.

I would not recommend this anime to anyone, even if you’re a fan of the game and manga. The anime contains graphic violence and is intended for young adults.
