Paul Jensen. I'm not at all surprised to see that Angels of Death has its origins in a video game. Based on this first episode, this is the kind of story that would work far better as an interactive experience.

Thankfully, it was for only two days, but even in that amount of time, I learned something about myself and others.

Condensation fills the clear mask. One harsh coughing fit that sprays a fine sheen of blood droplets on the interior of the mask.
Illness, from minor colds to chronic diseases, creeps into people's lives whether they expect it or not. Anime in which a character is sick can create drama by introducing high stakes. Not every anime that includes illness centers entirely around the disease.
