Angel Blade (エンジェルブレイド, Enjeru Bureido?) is a three episode hentai OVA series that came out from 2001 to 2003. It was created and directed by Masami Ōbari, who was also responsible for the design of the characters. The anime is a parody of Go Nagai's manga and anime Cutey Honey and Kekko Kamen. It is entirely unrelated to the 1997 PlayStation game Angel Blade - Neo Tokyo Guardians.
The storyline is continued in a three episode sequel series, Angel Blade Punish!
The first series was released in the U.S. on two DVDs, entitled Angel Blade (containing episodes 1–2) and Angel Blade Returns (containing episode 3 and some bonus material). Angel Blade Punish! was released in the U.S. as a single DVD containing all three episodes.
It is part of the Vanilla Series.
Angel Blade takes place in a future where the Earth's surface is no longer habitable due to pollution. Humans live in 99 cities above the smog, while the surface below, unknown to them, is home to a race of mutants. Suddenly, a castle, ruled by the organization Dark Mother, mysteriously appears in the sky over City Number 69. For unknown purposes, the mysterious people of this dark castle track down women and start their devious machinations, which are unknown but involve raping women. In the time of chaos, Angel Blade, a beautiful woman, appears as a force of justice to protect the women.
- Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer is a 1996 anime adaptation of a 1995 arcade game also worked on by Masami Ōbari. It is the source of the character Karin Son who is a villainess in Angel Blade.
