Ange Vierge (アンジュ・ヴィエルジュ, Anju Vieruju) is a Japanese digital collectible card game released by Fujimi Shobo and Media Factory, two brand companies of Kadokawa Corporation. It was first announced in 2013. The franchise theme song is by L.I.N.K.s, a group composed of the voice actresses Yūka Aisaka, Mai Ishihara, Yoshiko Ikuta, Rie Takahashi, and Nozomi Yamamoto.

A manga series titled Ange Vierge Linkage by Mako Komao with art by Sakaki Yoshioka was serialized in Fujimi Shobo's shōnen manga magazine Monthly Dragon Age between 2014 and 2015, and was collected in two tankōbon volumes.

On April 20, 2017, Kadokawa announced that further development of the trading card game has been discontinued. A final tournament will take place in May 2017, with the franchise's tournaments and campaigns ending at the end of June 2017. The franchise's website will be shut down on March 31, 2018.[1][2]

Characters[edit]

Main characters[edit]

Saya Sōgetsu (蒼月紗夜, Sōgetsu Saya)
Voiced by: Minako Kotobuki[3]
A former high school student from the Blue World and the main protagonist. Though she is emotional, she is also brave and supportive when the situation calls for it. Before gaining her powers she was a completely normal high school student who barely had any kind of presence. She uses a lightsword in combat. The blue world is earth.
Almaria (アルマリア, Arumaria)
Voiced by: Yumi Hara[3]
A mature vampire girl from the Black World. She fights using blood but at the same time she thinks that feeding on others is embarrassing, and thus has not bitten anyone yet. However, after drinking Saya's blood in a desperate situation, she becomes completely attached to her and is able to use her full powers.
Elel (エルエル, Erueru)
Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki[3]
An extremely friendly and energetic angel from the Red World. She is able to become friends with anyone. Her ability is to borrow abilities from her friends, but it only works if there is a mutual bond between them.
Code Omega 77 Stella (コードΩ77ステラ, Kōdo Ō 77 Sutera)
Voiced by: Rika Tachibana[3]
A heterochromic android from the White World. She has a passion for speed and wants to become even faster than before. Her ability is to manipulate acceleration.
Nya Lapucea (ナイア・ラピュセア, Naia Rapyusea)
Voiced by: Sarah Emi Bridcutt[3]
A busty and mature girl from the Green World. She has the reflexes of a soldier (as she is an ex-squad leader) but is also quite carefree and hates trouble. She is also very lazy, always trying to find excuses to avoid working. She feels guilty for what happened to Eins, as she was the one leader of her squad during the time the accident happened.
Amane Ayashiro (彩城天音, Ayashiro Amane)
Voiced by: Yukari Tamura[3]
The alpha-driver for Saya's team from the Blue World. Extremely clumsy and goofy yet also kindhearted and optimistic, Amane is the central point for the girls' motives, and each of their episodes shows just how they met and become friends with her. She loves teasing her friends, but is also easily hurt despite her carefree attitude. After episode 3, she is sealed within a crystal made by the Ouroboros.
