The story is of Kitano Seiichirou, a very kind and pure-hearted young man, with a horrifying, monstrous face. People being what they are, they think he's a terrifying delinquent, and there are plenty of chance misunderstandings (coupled with Kitano's convenient inability to understand what's happening around him) that propel him into the position of "school guardian", a.k.a. head thug on campus.

Art great from the beginning. I mean, how many real people got scared and run screaming after seeing Kitano first time? Before Claymore, of course.

I did not really notice the art in the beginning. As i grew older i left my rather childish belief that graphic meant everything. After reading claymore (and loving it) i got used to Yagis art style and that made me pay less attention to art and more on the story. The first volume you might read for the pure comedic thrill. You will continue to read volume 2 and then start to get hooked on the character development. This is all in all one of the best manga i have ever read. (along with Claymore, Flame of Recca, Gantz, Kiseijuu, Reborn!, Superior and many more) Yagi Norihiro is a genius. I proclaim this a must read for all hardcore manga fans

The art is bad for volume 1, but after that it is way better for the rest of the series, so don't give up on reading just because of the art. And hell, if you can't get over the art, skip the first volume, since it doesn't have anything important or substantial to the series anyways. You should be focusing on the plotline instead. I like this manga mainly because it's original and not as typical as other shounen.

the art isn't that good in the beginning - true enough
but soon it'll get better

some loose logic but overall, a very funny ride from the beginning till the end smile

kudos to manga-sketchbook team - the comedy wasn't lost in translation and their work is very professional. Thanks a lot guys ^^~

The art is not that great as to why the majority of the manga readers around would find themselves ditching the series, but I tell you, reading it is really worth it. The mangaka's art style has significantly improved in the later volumes.You must have to endure the long duration of this series, though.

But, overall, it's really humorous and enchanting, only those with hearts of stone would never be able to feel Kitano's touch in their hearts.

But seems like the series ceased being scanlated with only one volume left. Pity.

This is the king of comedy mangas, others should hand over the throne and bow before it's greatness. Never have I laughed so hard in all my life. Art is crappy in the beginning but who cares? If your a true manga lover than you will give everything a chance! (Recommend reading past Vol.1 at least!)

A definite must read, if you like satirical humor. Kitano Seichiro is the most loveable unintentional delinquent I've ever come across in a series.

Angel Densetsu is really one of my favorite comedy manga. The story is funny, interesting and very addictive. The art is less beautiful in the beginning, but you can see that the art is developing and becomes a style I really like. The protagonist, Kitano Seiichirou, actually reminds me of the Joker from the BATMAN comics rather than a demon (also a bad/evil guy), but Kitano Seiichirou in the story is of course a very kind person.

The funniest part in the story is that Kitano Seiichirou's face is enough to scare the people away without doing anything; then the reaction the people (street gang or school mates) got who see Kitano Seiichirou's face is hilarious. I also like the Martial Art in the manga, they are nicely drawn. How Kitano Seiichirou changes the heart of the people he knows and how he becomes friends with them is very interesting and gives me a good feeling and there's a moral in the story: you can not comdemned people by their looks.

I was hoping there'll be an anime series for this manga that follows the entire manga (all 15 volumes!), since the story fits in an anime with "schoollife" and comedy theme very well. If I am right there's an OVA anime of 45 min., but I couldn't find it anywhere.

By the way, one of the character looks like Clare (from Claymore, an action and fantasy swordfighting manga/anime from the same author): Ikuno.
