Description
A lonely yet caring 15-year-old Chiaki, the half-angel daughter of the Archangel Michael and a human woman, welcomes into her home a dejected devil Ororon who pledges to stay at her side forever.
Both of them have been ostracized from their respective celestial realms--Chiaki because her origins are impure and Ororon because he is the youngest son of the Lord Devil and therefore a threat to his older brothers for leadership of the underworld.
As various agents of heaven come by to destroy the angel Chiaki, she learns that having the incredibly powerful Ororon by her side is useful. And as assassin after assassin comes to eliminate Ororon, he learns that Chiaki can teach him a valuable lesson about the sanctity of life.

This is definitely a unique manga. A unique style, not necessarily absolutely to my liking, but very distinguishable. The similarity of the faces was quite confusing at times but at least they all had different hairstyles and clothes.

The story was pretty cliche but twisted in such a way that it appeared brand new. There were many interesting sub-plots that, in my opinion, were not used to their full potential. For example, I would have loved it if Othello's character was explored more, and that's just one thing. Because they weren't of much significance to neither the main plot nor to the main characters' development, they ended up being... frankly, quite pointless.

Also, not enough character development. Ororon, Chiaki, Mitsume... they did develop... a little bit... but it was not convincing.

Another thing, some plot developments were down right illogical given the nature of the story. There's no excuse for this.

The ending too, left me unsatisfied. I thought that this manga was about the meaning and importance of life but in the end it only implied so. At first, it seems as though the mangaka was too focused on making it the 'Hamlet' quality kind of tragedy. But in the end, they failed to express it, thus leaving no emotional impact, to me at least.

What really struck me was the inner monologues, however. Hence the high rating I gave it. They were really deep, beautifully written and true to each character. They were on a level that is usually beyond manga in a literary sense - you could find something like this in a well-received fiction book. Perhaps it was the fast pacing that did not let me invest myself into this emotionally but I could really sympathize with each character. It was so beautiful how one character dedicated their thoughts to another as if they were writing a letter (Ororon's thoughts in particular). And they were not just your usual word-to-word definitions of their feelings as opposed to what we usually see in most manga. No, there were metaphors, there were aposiopesises, there were implications...
I guess I should say now, kudos to the translators for not failing to make it sound great!

I feel I'm giving this manga a higher rating than it actually deserves but that's more because of my weakness for beautiful words. I feel that while writing it the mangaka bit more than they could chew. A little planning wouldn't have hurt.

Amazing but terrible ending

Honestly I was in love with it pretty much from the first page. Powerful characters, awesome backstories, and some great humor--and then it ends and it's like...what the hell. Literally the only reason I can think for an ending like that is that the author died or didn't want to finish it or something because that wasn't an ending. And I'm pretty pissed Ororon died considering the main character could bloody heal! I mean I was really into this--REALLY into this. But I wouldn't advise reading it simply because the ending is...it's probably as bad as Cloverfield. Or worse. It was a horrible ending. Admittedly the pacing was pretty rushed as well, but if it had had a proper ending I honestly wouldn't have minded that; the fast pace sort of matched it. But it needed another volume to finish up and. I don't know, maybe the publisher just didn't feel like giving them that. Which sucks because like I said, it was really good. But don't read it; you'll just wind up unsatisfied and angry.

First, the comment directly below me ruined it with its stupid retard spoiler.

It was such a nice shojo until the ending, man the ending <:C
The ending was immensely confusing and I hated that half the people had moles, It was basically the only way to tell people apart. And the scanlations were very poor, too poor to be overlooked. The font kept changing?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Like! People can be resurrected in this manga! And the girl was with him the whole time! No healing powers? No resurrection?

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And at random intervals I saw this angel guy in the ending, which made me think. What the hell was the author thinking? Nothing was cleared up! No one knew the ending. It just ended when the guy dies??? The girl is the stupid protagonist so where is her ending? Where is her parents? What happened to them? What happened to her? If she was supposed to be god then why was she so useless? The only time she used her powers was to kill the city?

Barely anything was resolved.

I loved it. I stayed up all night to finish it. I felt so overwhelmed and excited. It was a great story but:
1. The situation of the Ororon and Chiaki kept reapiting itself through the end.
2. I Didn't like the fact that Ororon eventually died
3. It felt unfinished
4. Too many tragic deaths -shouldn't she be doing something about it with her powers?
5. Many stories unfolded and unfinished
I know it was a story mainly about those two but there were a lot more in the story or at least it should be.

Weird, but the good sort

That was weird. I liked it. In an objective sense I don't think it's very good, but the messy confusion is interesting in itself. It breaks the general rules of good storytelling - the romance is so rushed in developing that for a while it was unbelievable, things happened out of nowhere, lots of characters were introduced but without really doing anything with them, one particular character seems important but is never explained, and another gets a relatively huge amount of screen time but doesn't forward the plot in any way, she uses her powers once despite all that buildup, and half the fighting and stuff that happens isn't in itself relevant to what the story is about ... so yeah, it's all very nonstandard. It's nice to have stories that break expectations, and if some very sensible ideas about storytelling fall by the wayside, that's okay too.

The person I hated the most was Chiaki.
She rather see the person she supposedly love die then to see him protect himself.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What pissed me off more was that all she did was cry at the end about how she had no one else. What about the people staying close to you and who just died to protect you. She just sat there crying doing nothing but saying how she wants to be with Ororon. Bull. She wanted him to die and everyone else.


This was only worth Ororon trying his best to live and find someone who he could trust. In the end he did find those people somewhat but he didn't want to see.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
His brother was suppose to be saving him but he was playing around lol
And the person he loved was an idiot. Sure she's an angel but she's also human. Humans are selfish.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She could have been selfish that one moment killing everyone else around them just to save him. Or died with him. She got upset and accidentally killed all those people just because he wanted to survive that one time. >.>


But anyway is this really over? So much was left opened. I did like this but Chiaki was a hypocrite in the worst way. I did like there feelings for each other but I don't think Chiaki's feelings were real enough. Hope there is a sequel.

I got the whole series in my bookshelf. While it is not a masterwork (let's admit it, what is a "masterwork" gets decided by scientists with the power of knowledge, so why even talk about it here bigrazz ) it still made me cry in the end. You could still feel the feelings of the main characters, mainly loneliness and happiness to finally have someone to share the first feeling with. The end felt kind of like a mirror shattering and the shards falling to the floor.

Some plot points are confusing but overally it was a nice fantasy story.

P.S. I didn't like the style much though, like: they are all chain smokers haha

I loved it, I did not want it to finish, never ever. and still the end was just perfect for the story and inevitable you just know from the beginning that it had to end like this and you still hoped until the last final panel. really touching story
I will have to admit that the art is rather simplified, but still beautiful and fitting to the story

I understand that he was pursued and that it was about evil and goodness finding a balance ... I mean, duh... but the characters should have been more developed. They lacked the personality to carry a person through to the end. The art was dark and full of lone lines which I can appreciate because it's different from most manga's but I was disappointed.

I first read the first two chapters of this manga and I was totally captivated, but I couldn't find the rest. After a three whole years of searching I could only find two volumes. I want to read the rest too! I love the art and the story. But I'm a little afraid of the ending. I hope I can read more mangas drawn by Hakase Mizuki.
