About Gabriel DropOut
An angel at the top of an angel school has descended to the human world! However, she has already acclimated to the life of the human world so much that she ends up leading a self-indulgent life, skipping school all the time and being absorbed in online games. Gabriel soon forgets about her original goal to make human beings happy and has turned into a lazy and hopeless angel, or a “sloppy angel” in short. Amazingly, she swears to continue to fully enjoy the pleasure of various entertainments of the human world.
The Gabriel DropOut manga has been serialized in Kadokawa/Ascii Media Works’ monthly magazine Comic Dengeki Daioh “g” since December 2013, and currently three tankobon volumes are available in Japan. Doga Kobo works on production of the anime adaptation. Masahiko Ota, who recently worked on Himouto! Umaru-chan, is attached to direct, alongside series composition writer Takashi Aoshima (Yuruyuri, Umaru-chan) and character designer Masahiro Katsutani (We Are Luck & Logic Club).
