Sentai Filmworks announces acquisition of ARCH ANGELS
Sentai Filmworks has announced its latest acquisition, Arch Angels. In this live-action film based on the manga of the same name, St. Michael's is an elite Catholic boarding school nestled on a beautiful remote island, and it is the quintessence of sophistication. Within the grounds of this aristocratic haven, high school students Fumio, Kazune and Yuzuko discover that they have something in common: they just don’t fit in.
After several girls from wealthy families are kidnapped one after another, everyone becomes wary and apprehensive. When an unexpected force infuses the three girls with special powers, the fate of the school and its attendees might just be in the hands of these misfits.
The film was directed and co-written by Issei Oda, who also supervised visual effects. Dai Miyazaki and Issei Shibata were in charge of producing, with Hirofumi Okada handling cinematography.
Arch Angels will be available through select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow.
