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.

In truth, I first picked it up because I was bored, and it was a manga. I skimmed through it at first, feeling REALLY repelled by the art.

Although it's "grown"(as Pomegranate said) on me since then, I still feel it's not really "beautiful".

But somehow, it was just right for this story. All the blood, the love, the feelings; everything was completely THERE.

{SPOILER ALERT}

Spoiler (highlight to view)
When Chiaki cried, I really felt her emotions coming right off the page. When Ororon's guts were pulled out, I felt every bit of Chiaki's terror for him.

And when he died, Chiaki's words really touched me. Even now, I still remember parts of her little soliloquys. "Petals of a broken soul falling all around me."

And the way she describes Ororon at the end is simply heartbreaking. In it's own way, The Demon Ororon is no less touching than other contemporary tragedies(ie. The Notebook, Romeo and Juliet).

All in all, this manga was lovely, and suprisingly enough, this manga has become one of my favorite manga, and one of my most unforgettable manga moments.

So check it out, if you can look behind the art to see the bigger picture[yeah, really lame ending note, but it works:]

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.

Okay, I know it doesn't say so in the genre, but i'ts a total tragedy. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean that the story is tragically lame or bad... but I think the genre Tragedy should be added to the descriptions. I HATED THE ENDING! Please, mangaka, please, make a sequal... I'm begging you!

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 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 only really picked it up cause it had angels and demons in the summery. i thought Chiaki was guy at first, like from the front cover picture, but then...i was wrong.
i didn't mind the art, in fact i love it cause you can almost spot it a mile away, like with the art in FAKE. and it's a really beautiful style i think.
the characters really worked well, i always liked it when Shiro and Lika were there because 9/10 they were arguing.
the story pace was great, the story was brilliant in general, just the ending, i was a bit upset at but it kinda worked... T_T (why Shiro? Why him)

overall my favouritest manga ever. i never tire of it.

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.

It may be that I'm not a big Shoujo person, but the elongated, borderline CLAMP-ish style rubbed me the wrong way. Kind of ironic since I like many odd art styles such as Go Nagai and Hirohiko Araki. But anyways, the storyline isn't all it was hyped up to be. You had the girl-meets-boy plot, the backstories of said girl and boy, the pansexual Orthello, the royal disputes, etc.. It was done well, but no timeless classic here. Short, so if you want something to kill time this is good.

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
