Is the author ever going to finish this one? It's seriously one of my favorite series EVER (and my first manga) and she left off at the worst cliff hanger imaginable--and I've gotten pretty used to millions of cliffhangers. What's more, TokyoPop supposedly went out of business so even if the author does complete the series, are us Americans ever going to see it? *cry* It's fun, it's cute but not sickeningly so, it has drama, action, excitement, great art, an interesting plot, an adorable main character, come on. It's worth finishing, especially with a cliffhanger like that.
Oh, and the anime was terrible, so if you've seen that and are thinking you'll never read the manga because of it, well, it had nothing to do with the real series. And if you liked the anime, you'll like the manga even better.

probably will remain unfinished...
dn angel reminds me of another hunterxhunter... you can say it's on a permanent hiatus. i remember buying vol10 in hong kong (which came out about a month after the japanese version) in 2004 and vol11 came out about 2 years after. and it's been 3 years... we may just never know what happens to daisuke and his rivals in love, stealing, and whatnot.
If I recall correctly, DNAngel was the first manga I ever came across. And luckily, it was good enough to where I kept exploring the manga world, because if it had been some of the other…less than respectable series out there, I wouldn’t have continued at all. Looking back, the premise is a bit different than most shoujo series (and yes, the main lead is a guy). Not all together realistic (it is fantasy after all) but not over the top ridiculous either – not in that “why am I even sitting through this” kind of way, so don’t worry. Perhaps the most irksome thing about this series is the lack of coherency of plot towards the middle until where we are now. Sugisaki-sensei tends to go on hiatus a lot, so I kind of lost interest as time went on, but the series overall is rather unique and cute, with decent plot/action. Guys may be able to sit through this one, and not just girls. The characters are above average, and even if one of them is slightly “boring” or another is “shallow” ect, in my personal opinion, they are still more interesting than the other of their kinds. I even find Risa (who has just about the largest hate base I’ve ever seen) quite endearing after all this time, even if I don’t actually “like” her. Dark is my favorite because the mangaka managed to present him with mystery and more depth than first meets the eye (you honestly kind of just stare at how beautiful he is at first, and then you realize you’re just like Risa). I keep thinking his character could be developed into an endless story if the mangaka so desired, because his character was built upon a great foundation and is different from the typical flirty, pervert bishounen you see elsewhere. In the end, if the mangaka would pick this series up again, I would definitely try to get back into it because it is one of the better series out there with much potential, not to mention great, non-flowery or sparkly art.
The anime could have been a long running and popular success but the Mangaka took too much time putting it on hiatus.
She should either think about finishing the story within the next few volumes or carry on writing it because its extremely more popular than her other manga's.
this is a great manga but dark does bug me for some reason
Manga and Anime.
I have to say the manga does a more thorough job of switching one problem to the next. It's really funny and the characters are cute; very fasionable too. But the anime, man, there was something wrong. I didn't like the artwork, the characters' bodies sometimes seems a bit out of place, like the neck is too skinny or something. The anime does not make sense, it jumps back and forth a lot and I hate it.
It was very good....yeah, was
This manga was very good a few years, this style back then was "new" and different from other. The story was pretty nice too. But that was years ago now it has lost much of its appeals. Unless she does somehow come up with something amazing I can't see this manga be as successful as it was. @ShadowSakura: Agree with you on her record of unfinished works. From a professional stand point, that's just unacceptable. How can she still find editor and publisher who is willing to put up with that? --- Just a pity, really.

a really good series. To bad the mangaka always have problems to finish her work... And it takes her long to draw... but at least the manga is revived... please, editor, make her work until the end
This manga was my first, and I really loved the art and storyline. Sometimes it can get a bit confusing, but the mystery and romance are always worth a bit of confusion. It seems to me that the Tokyopop editions are easier to understand, though since they are getting rid of their North American division, we might not see anymore official releases. Either way, great read!
I Absolutely LOVE this manga but...
What's up with the author constantly taking this manga and putting it on hiatus? The author may have her reasons for putting this manga off (real life for example) but it just so happens she is working on another manga. I wish the author would just finish this one before working on the next.
Hiatus aside... this is a one of a kind manga which has an amazing story line, and quirky (albeit annoying) characters. The art gradually improves throughout the storyline. May I also state that this is the only series Sugisaki that I read/enjoy.
This manga is undoubtably one of the best i've ever read, but the constant "hiatus in your face" is really annoying.
