The best student from angel school…
…Goes to a human high school…
…Only to be ruined by an MMO.
Gabriel DropOut is the latest comedy from Doga Kobo. The story centers around Gabriel, an angel who was at the top of her class in Heaven. After being sent down to Earth, so she can become a legit angel, she quickly becomes addicted to video games. Gab is also a terrible angel.
A Playful Cast.
Gab is not the only celestial being sent to Earth as part of a school training program. Funnily enough, Gab's best friend is a demon named Vigne, who is the complete opposite of Gab in every way. Vigne is a terrible demon, and goes out of her way to help people in need.
We also meet Satania, who is a dimwitted demon who plans to rule Hell by causing mischief. Too bad Satania's idea of pure evil is not doing her homework.
Then there is Raphi, who went to angel school with Gab. Despite her friendly appearance, Raphi is a hardcore sadist.
Fast Paced Jokes
If Interviews with Monster Girls was too slow for you, you'll enjoy Gabriel DropOut's faster pace.
The first episode did not linger too long on scenes, and often had a quick build up to the punch lines. That doesn't mean the writing was choppy, because we had more than enough time to learn the cast's personalities.
Gabriel DropOut is structured as a collection of comedic scenes instead of one long narrative. This style really suits the gags, but it makes the episode seem shorter than what it really is.
Comedy Fans Will Find A Lot to Love
Being a comedy, Gabriel DropOut has to execute its jokes with great timing and delivery from the voice cast. From Satania's adorable failures to Gab's snark, it all works well.
The jokes so far are based around the cast's personality quirks. If you are looking for parody based humor, sex jokes, or even religious jokes, then you're going to be disappointed.
But if you want some fast paced humor about an angel mocking a demon for being too heavenly, or Satan's spawn fighting a dog, then you'll have a good time.
Plus, there is a joke about heavenly panties.
This is as lewd as Gabriel DropOut gets.
