Well, maybe not everyone can relate to her. But I sort of did, wahaha.
The main character is an overachieving angel named Gabriel. However, she falls into depravity (aka she becomes a gaming otaku) shortly after being sent down to Earth where she can learn how to live like a human. It’s some kind of rite of passage. She also has no intentions of going back to heaven.
My thoughts on Gabriel DropOut thus far:
Gabriel is closer to acting like a demon than her actual demon friend, Vignette.
What happens if humans find out they’re angels or demons? Maybe that’ll be addressed later.
Satanichia is an overdramatic demon who actually sucks at being demonic compared to Gabriel.
I would not forgive my friend if I was stood up for two hours. Vignette, you are a good girl.
Turns out Raphiel is a sadist / troll. It’s a bit of a shock hearing Hanazawa Kana’s voice such an interesting character, but I like it.
I’m already shipping demons with angels.
The song that’s played at the end of the episode is actually nuts to listen to as it alternates between angelic voices and heavy rock melodies. But it sure is colorful.
tl;dr – Gabriel DropOut continues the trend of otaku girls who are cute yet annoying. If you enjoyed Himouto! Umaru-chan, I think this show would be right up your alley. It’s rather funny, but I’m seeing a few animation issues already.
