J.C. Staff Producing “Angels of Death” Anime


These angels aren’t bringing cookies, I assure you. Well, maybe they are, but they’re death flavored.

The sixth collected volume of Makoto Sanada and illustrator Kudan Naduka’s Angels of Death (Satsuriku no Tenshi) manga shipped of retailers earlier today. The book’s wraparound band includes an announcement that J.C. Staff will produce an anime adaptation of the work, which will hit Japanese TV in 2018.

The Angels of Death anime was first unveiled on July 24.

Makoto Sanada and illustrator Kudan Naduka’s Angel of Slaughter made its début in Kadokawa’s Comic Gene magazine in 2015. The series currently spans four collected volumes, with the fifth due to hit Japanese bookstores on July 27.

At Sakura-Con, Yen Press announced that they licensed the Angels of Death manga. The first volume shipped to retailers on November 14. They describe the series as:

Most girls waking up without any memory and meeting a serial killer would panic, but not Ray. In fact, far from being her biggest problem, killer Zack might just prove a convenient resource when it comes to finding a way out of the building in which they’re both trapped!

The franchise made its début as a “psycho horror adventure game” by Sanada, under the name “Hoshikuzu KRNKRN”. The game sees serial releases on the Den Fami Nico Game Magazine website, and is available in English on Steam under the title Angels of Death.
