The official Twitter for the Satsuriku no Tenshi franchise has announced that the game will receive a TV anime. More information will be revealed at a later time via official Twitter.

Synopsis
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… (Source: MU, Edited)

Ikr, I like Ib more than AoD but AoD is also really good.

Is this really horror? I mean, I understand the thriller part from reading the synopsis, but it doesnt really sound like horror to me.. (Just saying, cuz I'm not a big fan of gore and scary stuff, so if its just light horror, I might give it a try..)

Josei thriller seems rare enough tho hope horror doesn't turn into short. Wonder if there's any lastofus vibe.

That synopsis sounds similar to a game I played called Ib which was really fun. I'm hoping for something similar from this anime ^^

I've always been a sucker for Psychological Horror games/shows. :D

Quick Edit: The title of the game on steam is Angels of Death. You missed the "s" in Angels in the description.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/537110/Angels_of_Death/

Also, the English titles for the anime and manga are "Angel of Slaughter". I think Angels of Death sounds nicer, but Slaughter is the official manga title by Yen Press and should only have those 2. Massacre just sounds over the top.


Satsuriku can be translated either to 'slaughter' or 'massacre'

and seriously, this title must be cursed

how many ways can one mistranslate it?


Fair points. I think the English title is confirmed from this, but I hear you.
It's annoying when titles have an annoying number of translations.

Manga sites only have the first chapter. Rest of it is on tumblr only

Holy fucking shit. I've literally been hoping for this since I played the game and I already have Rachel on my favourite characters list. Just fuck yes.

Now give this to a good studio please. . .
