13-year old Rachel awakens to find herself trapped in the basement of an abandoned building. Without any memories, or even a clue as to where she could be, she wanders the building, lost and dizzy. In her search, she comes across a man covered in bandages. He introduces himself as Zack and he wields a grim-reaper like sickle.
A strange bond is struck between them, strengthened by strange, crazy promises…
These two, trapped in this strange building, don't know why fate has placed them there. But they will work together desperately to find a way out…
Satsuriku no Tenshi is a retarded version of FATE ENCORE.
Not that FATE ENCORE was bad, (it was) this however is worse.
It has a lot in common with the latter, I'll be summarizing the first episode.
A girl wakes up in a hospital (or so it seems) after being subjugated to many deaths. We're not shown who or why, so her emotional connect to us is gone, not like it was ever there in the first place.
She figures out shes not in the hospital and proceeds to look around finding writing on the wall and a paper to which she signs with no issues, let alone
concern. (She doesn't seem to care about anything. This is a key issue and lazy writing.)
An elevator opens up behind her after this and she decides its a good idea to go inside. It closes and brings her to the 'first floor'. Disappointed FATE fans everywhere are having PTSD flashbacks. It looks like we'l be clearing floors just like a game... oh wait this is based off a game, silly. Lame gameplay.
Our 'heroine' is chased on this floor by the most stereotypical dressed edgy-assed bad guy I've ever seen, scythe and all. When we start adding unnecessary bandages to our characters maybe we should just stop character design altogether - the myriad of DeviantART delinquents are outraged.
Regardless of my blunt sarcasm, the character designs are terrible.
The voice casting is mediocre at best, slipping into terrible whenever Okamoto Nobuhiko decides to laugh. It's more like a prepubescent shriek or the death-rattle of someone with mental issues - it doesn't give off it's desired affect.
The progression is slow, boring, uncalculated, random and boring.
The character's tropes are transparent and overwhelmingly unbearable.
I'm not sure how the game was but I'm sure making it into an anime feature was a huge mistake.
