Hell’s Angels

I just finished reading, well, what I could, of the english translation of Hell’s Angels online, which was sadly only 2 issues, really.


Still it’s a nice manga, with a wild, almost insane art style, following the adventures of a Rinne trapped in hell, still alive, at Destiny Land, a school in Hell. Graduate, and you can go to heaven. There she befriends a bevy of bodacious hellish babes, which includes horror icons such as a werewolf, vampire, witch, swamp monster, mummy, Death, even Phantoma based off of the Phantom from The Phantom of the Paradise, and Steela, a Frankenstien-creature of nothingness.

From what I read, it’s a dark and maddening read I’m sure many will enjoy. I was especially fond that there was such attention to Phantoma, based upon such an obscure movie. The author Hiromoto Sin-ichi must have enjoyed that movie to make a female version of the phantom.

I hope that the rest of the third volume will be available soon for translation.

The Manga for your reading pleasure!

The movie trailer, slated Feb. 2009 in Japan, so it should already be out…
