I must know!!!
2 August 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now this is where it really gets me.... why create any movie to end the way that Angel Sanctuary did? Why leave your viewers or devoted anime/manga fans in such a true state of dismay? Who and why anyone or any creator would ever want to do sure is beyond me.

So with that in mind.... does anyone know if Kaori Yuki, Kiyoko Sayama or ANYONE will be or is going to be continuing the episodes/series? The story is AMAZING and completely goes against every sort of "Ideal" that any sort of "normal" society tells you to believe, act etc.

These characters truly touched my heart, by all their anguish in just trying to be happy in their current "life".

There's not too much that I can say, as I think the other commenter's did phenomenal jobs portraying everything this anime/manga is about.

****Again, if anyone knows anything about them bringing the rest of the series or episodes to life..... please I would really like to know.*****
