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?
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 popularity score is 86.8%. 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. On the other hand, the manga series is still ongoing today. It reached 12 volumes at the time of writing, and the manga provides enough source material for anime. Considering the side series, we can say that the anime is in good condition in terms of source material adequacy.
When is the second season of the anime?
A second season has not been confirmed yet. However, considering the anime’s general popularity and source material adequacy, a new season is very likely. The elapsed time may reduce the hopes of the new season, but this is quite common for animes. 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 in late 2021 or 2022.
Relationship between Game, Manga, and Anime
Although the anime series is an adaptation, it differs from Manga and 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 is still ongoing, and there is no end. On the other hand, anime had an end, but many doors were left, so we see the second season as likely.
