far more forbidden, Dr. Shimazaki feeds them a steady diet of sexy

a corrupted nurse and her possessed sex slaves. Can she stop the
ultimate in naked evil before the flowers of darkness bring forth
their monstrous fruit? The ultimate in sexual horror unfolds in
the most nightmarish dark fantasy ever, Angel of Darkness II
Watch out for freaky professors...
The reason why this anime is titled "Angel of Darkness" just
escapes me. There are no angels, good-spirited or otherwise.
The "darkness" elements are more of biological freaks than
mere supernatural lackeys. I guess I should take Angel of
Darkness with as much seriousness that I took Can
Can Bunny, which neither had bunnies nor Can Can dancers.
What to say about Angel of Darkness, aside from my fascination
of watching monsters fight against other monsters... Well,
there isn't one single story thread, except for a volume or
two that are related to other volumes. All the horrific incidents
of rape and mass female torture, which loony school faculty
and their unrealistic ambitions instigate, are all ensconced
in some nightmare campus. In this aspect, Angel of Darkness
becomes similar to Imma
Youjo; there is only one common feature that binds all
unconnected circumstances (like the Maya incarnates of Imma
Youjo). Each chapter can stand alone, which is a good thing.
The artwork quality varies with every episode, but the animation
and the fluidity of movement is generally maintained throughout.
The last few volumes seem to have highly improved, both in
art and story. The character design can even be described
as exquisite. The ecchi scenes are nothing out of the ordinary,
and aren't as detailed as most h-fans would've wanted them
to be, but they sure give a complete new meaning to the phrase
"sex every five minutes".
