The website features an image of Kanade Tachibana from Angel Beats!, as well as an unknown silhouette.

The 2010 Angel Beats! anime revolves around protagonist Yuzuru Otonashi, who wakes to find himself in a strange high school setting. Otonashi has no memories prior to waking, but learns that the location is a strange afterlife and all of its inhabitants are deceased. He joins a group which rebels against the afterlife and its primary enforcer, Angel. A young woman named Yuri Nakamura leads the group, called "Shinda Sekai Sensen" (Afterlife War Front).

Sentai Filmworks released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America. A game adaptation of the anime's story is currently in development.
