Not trying to recommend it, but that's such an off-the-mark take on what this series actually is.... I mean, I know these types of indie horror games aren't really that mainstream, but i'd easily compare it more to OFF, Fran Bow, or The Witch's House. Heck, I'd even go as far as to say it's closer to the feel of Resident Evil than Silent Hill.

Weirdly enough, I'd be WAY more into this series if it was a cross between Saw and Silent Hill, lol. Like that sounds like it'd be a much more fun grindhouse type of ride than Angels of Death has been. Like someone make THAT show, that'd be awesome!

^ this.

the show is super stale.

rachel is perhaps the worst protagonist. no drive to want to connect or understand her at all.

Z, while awesome in a Bakugo-alt context, can't shoulder the entire thing.

the scenery is ok.

the writing is terrible.

Episode 14

Now that the truth is out, Rachel is now out to kill Zack, and she begins by killing Danny. Before that, she is trying to make Danny her own. So after that, the two are getting ready to part ways as Rachel accepts who she is and wants to die not seeking forgiveness for what she has done. So the two find the exit, a long stairwell behind a stain glass window, and the alarm goes off with the building about to self-destruct.
Pretty much, this episode is all about Rachel saying her goodbyes as she's a dead girl walking, and since she's dead set on dying that she would be better served remaining in the building when she dies, but of course she wants to die in her own way.

I wonder if Zack's claim to have killed God really comes from his own conscience or something he just said at the spur of the moment.

Meanwhile, Rachel's still got that death wish thing going on. 2 more episodes to go....

Killing god? Maybe he was referring to the false god Rachel set him up to be

“I’m not God, I’m a murderer and I kill people because I like it!” At least he is honest.

The only entrance exit/is a stained glass window you have to break after moving a heavy pipe organ.

I gather the residents of the 5 floors didn't get out much. To go shopping or anything.

I thought that too... but there's prolly a handy switch that opens some kind of hidden door. Obnoxious Priest just didn't wanna make it TOO easy for them.

(now I'm trying to imagine Kathy and Dr. Danny at the grocery market)

Episode 15

The escape is on as the dungeon as the self-destruct sequence has been initiated. But the two hit roadblocks on the way to the exit, first with the iron bars, then with a hole in the staircase, and finally a stone wall that breaks Zack's scythe. Just as they reach the exit, Danny comes in to shoot the two threatening to derail the promise. But after what Rachel said about vows that can't be stolen, in comes the priest to deliver punishment to Danny and allow Zack and Rachel to get out. While that talk was interesting, at the same time I just can' understand why those two can't wait until after they get out of the dungeon to have that conversation. One more episode left as while the promise can still be fulfilled, there's not much time left as Rachel is already dying, and that was an awfully long preview there lasting a few minutes, long enough to play the whole ending theme song.

Finally, they're reaching the end.

This feels like a dungeon crawler game that we're following with Rachel and Zack. Gotta admit though, they're really trying to draw out the emotions of those two together.

Sorry to the fans out there but I have been patient with this anime and it is full of crap.

Lots of deep introspection. Lots of piercing conversations. Horrific backstories. Promises/vows. And of course good ol Danny comes back from the dead for about the 18th time. The eyeless priest does what the eyeless priest does because why the fuck not he is above it all you know..

End result: nothing. No interesting insights. No shifts in perspective. No revelations or lessons worthy of the name and certainly not 4-5 hours of my time.

Rachel still moans about wanting to be killed. Zack still hates lies and is disdainful of everything. Danny still has a boner for Rachel but it isn't at all interesting. And the priest does his best to be enigmatic because the reason he is eyeless is that he is basically a mannequin.

At the end of the day it is all just pretentious. One star.
