Angels of Death Ending: What ACTUALLY Happened?


Angels of Death ending…do YOU know what actually happened to Zack and Rachel? We have 3 possible outcomes for these two and we still might not have all the answers. Let us go in-depth to discover which one is correct.

First Angels of Death Ending

This is based off this speculated ending: Rachel has been canonically diagnosed with mental delirium. In this ending, she has an episode of delierium and envisions Zack visiting her and finally killing her. But she’s actually plunging the knife into herself, committing suicide. She was so committed to dying Zack’s hand that her delirious brain conjured up the approproate sounds and effects to sill the environment.

But, as I said, this is the most unlikely ending, because at the end of the game and anime, the window of Rachel’s room is shown. The glass is shattered, the iron bars are broken, and there’s blood on the windowsill. She couldn’t have jumped out the window, since the glass is INSIDE the room and she’s not strong enough to break iron bars.

Second Possible Angels of Death Ending

Next ending the one I’m actually choosing to believe.

This ending is self-explanatory. Zack took Rachel away and then ran away together, supporting each other as the best friends they were meant to be. And more later on, but Rachel needs to grow up first. Don’t get wrong, I LOVE Zack and Ray together but she is still young. And both of them are just getting used to having a real friend. Their relationship can progress more once she grows up some.

3rd Possible Angels of Death Ending

And now, the “most likely happened but this show made us cry way more than we anticipated so we refuse to accept that this was the end” ending. And that is, that both of them died at the end with Zack killing Rachel and then himself.

Let me explain.

In episode 4, Danny says Zack couldn’t survive a shot to the head. But what if he did, at least for a short time? In this ending, Zack is shot in the head and the chest, and the blood on his scythe and windowsill may prove this. In the original Japanese version, Zack spoke less and less during the conversation, only giving single-worded answers or short noises like “hmm” or “ah”. This could be from the blood loss and haziness of being close to death.

So, Zack survives his execution and goes to Rachel.

You know Zack pulls Rachel out the window at this point, since neither of them are in the room at the end scene. When this happens, and the camera pans up to the moon, you can hear a faint stabbing sound. This could be Zack stabbing Rachel and killing her as she asked of him.

Then when the police arrive, you hear a loud thud. A lot of us think that is them breaking into the room after it was barricaded. But what if it was the sound of Zack and Rachel’s bodies hitting the ground? In short, this ending is the theory that Zack was close to death after surviving the execution and going to see Rachel in his final moments alive. When they fall out the window, Zack stabs her and ends her life with his final breath. He dies shortly after and they in each other’s arms. You can see that Rachel hugs Zack if you pause at the right moment. It’s just as they hit the ground.

In a way, it’s kinda poetic. Usuing your last moments to fulfill the wishes of someone you care about, knowing you’ll die shortly after. And in their case, dying together instead of alone.

So there you have it. Three possible Angels of Death endings. Which one do you believe? I’m still believing in the second one since I’m a romantic sap that can’t stand the thought of losing both my precious children. Let me know in the comments below!

As always,

Keep Smiling!

    I bet it is two because there is talk of a sequel! Although the sequel may delve more into their pasts and coming together to reveal the end so three is still an option but who says it isn’t romantic? Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet is one of the most romantic stories of all time involving the suicide death of the two as one dies in the others arms together if they could never be so instead of living alone a life of misery without one another.

      I didn’t know there was talk of a sequel! That would be so cool. It’s based off the RPG game so I wonder how they’ll do that?
      I’m one of the few people that actually doesn’t like Romeo and Juliet. There were so many things that just got under my skin about it. But I also know it’s recognized as one of the classics.
