A re-imagining of the RomanceGame / DatingSim ''Franchise/{{Angelique}}'' series, it debuted as a PS2 game in 2006. In 2008 it was adapted into a TV series, ''Neo Angelique: Abyss''. It has a total of 26 episodes, over two [[TwelveEpisodeAnime 13-episode]] arcs. Focusing on a [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent girl]] named Angelique who is uniquely qualified to battle the Thanatos, ephemeral beings who suck lifeforce out of humans.


!The TV series provides examples of:

* {{Arcadia}}
* BadassBookworm: Rayne
* BatmanGambit: Nyx's decision to find and befriend The Queen's Egg.
* BigBad: Erebos, who created the rift that allows the Thanatos beings to get into Arcadia.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Hyuuga, Rayne, J.D., and Nyx.
* BreakTheHaughty: Erenfried is initially presented as a insufferable prodigy until [[spoiler:his inventions stop working on the [[TheHeartless thanatos]], his team is wiped out in a thanatos attack, his plan to kidnap Angelique fails causing his mentor to scold him, this same mentor gets sentenced to death for the property damage Erenfried's machines caused forcing him to ask for help from The Organisation, he is forced to give up his [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots robot assistant]] and once he finishes his work The Organisation betrays him and throws him in prison.]] He's a bit different after all that.
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys: One major female character, the rest are hot pieces of cheese.
* CensorSteam: Hyuuga in the pond, Roche in the shower, the list goes on...
* CoolShades: Jet's Oakley-style glasses that still allow him to [[EyeBeams glare]].
* DeceptivelyHumanRobots: The Jasper Dolls
* DecoyLeader: Mathias as Head of the Order.
* DualTonfas: J.D.'s weapon of choice.
* HotScientist: Rayne, ''oh god'', Rayne!
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes
* LostTechnology: [[SuperHeroOrigin Experimenting with this gave Rayne his Purifier powers]].
* MyGrandsonMyself: Nyx
* NonhumanSidekick: Erwin
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Erenfried frequently, and Nyx occasionally.
* SchizoTech: Horsedrawn carriages alongside cars; 19th Century attire next to modern goth; and so forth.
* ShirtlessScene: Several characters get to flex their pecs to an adoring fanbase.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: J.D./Jade, Rayne/Lien, Erwin/Ervin, etc., mostly due to translation.
* SpoilerOpening: The first opening spoils [[spoiler: Rayne belonging to the artifact consortium, J.D. being an [[ArtificialHuman artifact]], [[MeaningfulName Nyx]] being [[BigBad Erebos]] and the death of Carlyle.]] If you had played the game however you would already know these things.
* SuperHeroOrigin: Rayne's powers were artificially created.
* TheGunslinger: Rayne, who can shoot a coin in the air multiple times and never runs out of ammo.
* TitleOnlyOpening: Found in Second Age. Seems to be one of the common tropes for the NeoRomance franchise.
* TrueCompanions: As each new Purifier is revealed, Angelique convinces them to join the rest of the team as companions. As the most formal character, Hyuuga has trouble speaking familiarly with other team members.
