The staff of the Angel Beats! and Charlotte anime series announced on Monday that the upcoming Japanese Blu-ray box release of the Angel Beats! anime will include an all-new episode titled "Hell's Kitchen."

The Blu-ray box is scheduled to be released in Japan on June 24, 2015.

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.
