Miki and Izumi are childhood friends who have always been together through thick and thin. But when Miki spots a young boy next to Izumi, her life changes forever; for he is an angel, and he is here to guide Izumi to the afterlife after he dies in the near future. Miki can’t bear to lose her beloved Izumi; is there anything she can do to save him?
As a one-shot, Angel Sky isn't given much room in which to develop its characters, but it does a fine job of making you feel for the lead duo, and feel their special bond.
