Angels of Death is originally a game in the psychological horror genre that was first released in 2015. The game, which was later released on many platforms such as iOS and Android, is also known for its anime adaptation and manga. The anime adaptation was created by JC Staff, produced beloved animes since the 1980s. We also know the studio for multi-season anime series like One Punch Man and DanMachiand we hope for confirmation of the new season for Angels of Death also. The anime, licensed by Funimation and crunchy rollswas released by local broadcasters AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, Sun TV, BS11, TVQ from July 6, 2018 to October 26, 2018. The anime, which increased its popularity by broadcasting on Hulu TV, the audience delighted with the +4 episode OVA. But viewers want more. So, could the series have one second season after more than two years?
What is the storyline of the anime?
When 13 year old Rachel awakens, she finds herself trapped on the ground floor of an abandoned building. She walks through the building dazed and lost, with no memories or no idea where she is. In her search, she comes across a man wrapped in bandages. The man introduces himself as Bag and uses a sickle-like Azrael’s. There is a strange bond between them, reinforced by strange, crazy words. The two are trapped in this strange building and they don’t know why fate has placed them here. But they will do everything they can to find a way out.
Will Angels of Death have a second season?
From December 5, 2021JC Staff or any related company has not yet renewed the series for a second season† The anime series, which is an adaptation of the game and the manga, takes its story from them, although there are differences. Given the overall popularity of the anime, a new season doesn’t seem impossible. It’s debatable whether Rachel has passed away or not, and there are many obvious open points for fans of the series. The drama seems to have left a lot of room for a second season.
While we couldn’t get any clear data on anime disc sales, the anime was ranked 318th in Myanimelist’s popularity rankings. This score is enough to renew an anime for a second season. It was also ranked 72nd in anime at Tokyo Anime Award Festival 2019. If we look at the Google search data to see the current popularity of the anime, we see a strong search volume. Of course, the fact that the series’ video game is just as popular as the anime also has an effect. If an anime series has a game, we can say that it is doing well financially. We think the makers can handle a new season.
However, it may not be enough to create a new season in terms of the source material. Therefore, it is more likely that the upcoming season will be a prequel. (Based on Angels of Death Episode manga.0) If there is an extension soon, the production period will average one year. We hope to see a new season of Angels of Death around 2023.

Relationship between game, manga and anime
Although the anime series is an adaptation, it differs from the manga and the Game on many points. The manga series has more backstories of the killers, and Anime and Game fall short in this regard. We also recommend anime viewers the manga series with detailed drawings. In the game and manga Zack is over 20, but in the anime he is 15/16 while Rachel is always 13. This age difference was not welcomed and the age balance in the anime was viewed favorably by many readers. The manga series was completed on September 15, 2020, and most of the source material was adapted into the anime. On the other hand, anime had an ending, but a lot of doors remained, so we see the second season or a prequel as likely.
