Heavenly Delusion Trailer Review
Something that made the trailer exciting was obviously the sinister overtone in the earlier scenes which later turned into a retro gaming music theme.
The earlier scene care shows the abandoned cityscape and two people wandering through it until the screen cuts to an oversized facility. Following that are just random epic scenes from throughout the story.
This is a treat for anyone who likes post-apocalyptic settings with overly advanced mechanical facilities where the people live.
The series is filled with plenty of psychological horror elements for the seinen fans and the animation quality is definitely top-notch.
