Betrayal will seriously change someone, especially when followed by nothing but vile dehumanization and, ultimately, a straight-up death sentence. That’s what Princess Angelise Ikaruga Misurugi is up against in Cross Ange, but she’s not going to go down without a fight. You’ll soon be able to soak in every minute of the epic mech action in Sentai Filmworks complete Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon collection, up for pre-order now ahead of a December 19 release.
While the now-former Princess may have thought being stripped of her birthright was the worst punishment possible, it goes much deeper than that. Those who can’t use a type of magic known as Mana are deemed to be in opposition of a society that recently found peace through its utilization. Ange falls into this category of magic-free people, tastelessly referred to as Norma, and this combined with her other crimes finds her exiled.
Unfortunately for those who scorned her, her slave-soldier exile to the island of Arzenal—the practical death sentence in question—is the spark that lights the fire of her retaliation. Together with an incredible weapon known as Villkiss and her newfound comrades, Ange will fight to change the world and oust the nefarious leaders pulling its strings.
Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon is an original TV anime from the mech masters over at Gundam studio Sunrise. Yoshiharu Ashino (Tweeny Witches, D.Gray-man Hallow) directs the series, with Tatsuto Higuchi (Schwarzes Marken) on series composition. Whether you’ve seen Ange’s tale unfold before or you’re new to the world of Cross Ange, you’ll want to secure your copy of Sentai Filmworks’ complete collection today.
