Not really that similar to Angel Densetsu
I liked Angel Densetsu and I liked this, but I don't think they were that similar.
In the first chapter, when Masaya was talking about wanting a LOHAS life and yet continually running into violence, I thought it was a bit similar.
Which is to say, so long as Masaya was /talking/. Already after the 1st chapter, his actions began to speak louder than his words.
Angel Densetsu is about a gentle-hearted guy who can't even fight offensively--- his strength is dodging, absorbing blows, and when truly worked up pushing people. Whereas Masaya lights motorcycles on fire in the name of revenge. And beat up adults when he was a THIRD GRADER. And finds it physically impossible to perform a dogeza, and extremely difficult to apologize.
He manages to still be likable, but in a VERY different way than the innocent sweetness of the "Wouldn't harm a fly" character of Angel Densetsu.
I mean, "innocent" and "sweet" are words that would be applied to Masaya only in his own delusional daydreams... (I could hear "essentially well-intentioned". Or maybe "kind in his own very... special... way")
The entire feeling of the manga was different for me. The relationship between the two male characters, a kind of trusting friendship, felt very different from the fear-awe-servitude relationship Angel's main character had with the other males. Since that's a pretty large part of the manga, it makes the whole tone feel different (...um, I happen to prefer this version. I loved AD but not really for the secondary male characters, who felt somewhat dull and repetitive...)
Because the manga doesn't really revolve around people misinterpreting the main characters' action as demonic (key word: "misinterpret"... they more like "interpret" them as demonic) the conversations that are somewhat similar to AD ("is he a bad person? is he not?") end up feeling different, as well...
Only one of the female characters is really anything like the girl from Angel Densetsu, and even there, not really...
Basically, after all that tl;dr: There's definitely a passing resemblance. But beyond that, they're rather different.
Good comedy manga.
Well, can't deny it shares some similarities with Angel Densetsu, but I think it manages to keep its own path. Masa isn't Kitano, they share a scary face but the personality is different, even if they maybe share some personality traits they carry them out in different ways. Comedy style is somehow alike to the mangaka's other works, like "I'm Doushiro" and "Tenshi no konamaiki"

u know,when i saw the Cover and the Summary i thoght this is just another boring manga with a bad boy wanna be a good boy.
But,i was wrong...i tried to peek a bit and surprisingly i fell in love with this manga both Story and Art pretty decent....
i'm starting to fell in love with this Mangaka Art style....
i like how he isnt timid but arrogant i like how he doesnt make wierd noises like KIKIKIKIK or KKKIIIEEEEEE umm...i like how he actually is a delinquent but acts like hes peaceful haha funn guy
Way better than I expected.
I am taking one point off for the art. And then, I am giving the point back, because the amateurish art actually makes the story funnier. I can not imagine Devil Ma-kun and Yamada drawn any other way.
It starts sort of like Angel Densetsu. But it's different. Devil really is a Devil. And the more he embraces his essential devil nature, the better he becomes.
very entertaining read
Not a bad plot, great comedy, good romance, and great character.... but I wouldn't expect less from the author of kyou kara ore wa . Great story, not quite as great as kkow imo but still great 9.5/10
Also its true its not that similar to angel densetsu... main character is misunderstood but he isn't exactly nice to those on his bad side.... no real hostility, just punishment at an "appropriate level" XD
Nishimori Hiroyuki = comedic genius
This is actually the first of his works I started reading a few years back, though Kyou Kara wa Ore Wa!! was written later, this was scanlated in earnest first.
If you've read his other works, rest assured he's done it again here. Every bit as funny as his other series. If you haven't read any of his stuff and like comedy, then I can only tell you that his works may be the funniest manga i've ever read.
I REALLY need to watch/read Cheeky Angel.
Awesome Highly Recomended!!!!
This manga is way better than i expected. I read first first chapters of it and complete into it.I heard ppl compared this to Angel Densetsu say it similar. so i gonna try to see how is that manga is.I like how the main character is like a devil (even tho he don't act like one) while the tea president she is like an angel. If they are meant to be together in this manga i think it would be great. It would be like an devil/angel couple. I can't wait for more chapters to come out. I've been waiting for it.
Good manga so far
This manga looks good so far, and I really love the last manga Nishimori Hiroyuki did.
It seems very funny and I'm looking forward to see more chapters in the near future.
I hate the author's pairings! He never gets them right.....he's the type of person that would choose ichihime over ichiruki......I want him to get with the mad dog!!!!! The story is really funny though
