Angels of Death Season 2 Release Date, All You Need To Know!

Angels of Death is originally a game in the psychological horror genre released in 2015 for the first time. 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 is created by J.C. Staff, produced beloved animes since the 1980s. We also know the studio for multi-season anime series like One Punch Man and DanMachi, and we hope for the new season confirmation for Angels of Death as well. The anime, licensed by Funimation and Crunchyroll, was released by local broadcasters AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, T.V. Aichi, Sun T.V., BS11, TVQ from July 6, 2018, to Oct 26, 2018. The anime, which increased its popularity by broadcasting on Hulu TV, delighted the audience with the +4 episode OVA. But viewers want more. So, could the series have a second season after more than two years?

What is the plotline of the anime?

When 13-year-old Rachel awakens, she finds herself trapped on the ground floor of an abandoned building. She walks around the building in a dazed and lost state, with no memories or no idea where she is. In her search, she encounters a man wrapped in bandages. The man introduces himself as Zack and uses a sickle-like Azrael’s. There is a strange bond between them, strengthened by strange, crazy words. The two are captive in this strange building, and they don’t know why fate put them here. But they will work to find a way out.

Will there be a second season of Angels of Death?

As of December 5, 2021, J.C. Staff or any related company has yet to renew 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. Considering the general popularity of the anime, a new season does not seem impossible. It is wondering whether Rachel died or not, and there are many obvious open points like that for the fans of the series. The drama seems to have left a lot of open ground for a second season.

Although we could not reach any clear data on anime disc sales, the anime ranked 318th in Myanimelist’s popularity ranking. 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. When 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 video game of the series is as popular as the anime also has an effect. If an anime series has a game, we can say that things are going well financially. We think the creators can handle a new season.

However, it may not be enough to create a new season in terms of the source material. Therefore, the upcoming season is more likely to be a prequel. (Based on manga Angels of Death Episode.0) If there is a renewal soon, the production period will be an average of 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 at many points. The manga series includes more of the killers’ background stories, and Anime and Game fall short in this regard. We also recommend the manga series with detailed drawings to anime viewers. In the game and the 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 positively by many readers. The manga series has been completed on September 15, 2020, and most of the source material was adapted into the anime. On the other hand, anime had an end, but many doors were left, so we see the second season or a prequel as likely.
