First of all, art of this manga is very nice, the proportions and lines are a bit off and messy at times but it stays very constant.
Storywise I think this is one of the best, the incest theme doesn't feel sick to me, later on in the series it gives you a more tolerable explanation to the whole relationship, if you bothered to read and appreciate the story as a whole that is. Infact the theme matched the story quite nicely, the fact that no one in the whole world accepted them makes a huge contrast to Kira's relationship with Setsuna. Kira's actions and what he does for Setsuna, etc, are explained later on, which leads to past and backstories, not only with setsuna but also with his angel's half.
Character developments were the best I've ever read in a manga, everyone of the characters had a perfect ending, like it or not. It didn't feel confusing at all since everything in the manga was explained, hence I think it's pretty perfect. =) One of my favorite manga of all time.
I didn't like it
Sorry, but I found reading it boring. It has a slow development. Also, that brother/sister love it was kind of sick.
my number one all time favorite manga ever
fantastic art - first few volumes are okay, but later volumes are just beautiful. epic setting - earth, heaven, and hell, filled with monsters, angels and demons. diverse cast - characters that you can really cheer for, sympathize with, cry for, or absolutely hate. deep plot - complex interesting even after several read-throughs, not predictable, well paced and rarely stagnant (i thought it was intriguing right from the start). and of course, a solid ending that feels justified without seeming too convenient.
i've heard people complain about the length, but at 20 volumes, i find it long enough to have some meat to it, but not so long as to feel old or repetitive. plot can get a bit complicated at times, so it's not a quick read - you can't really just skim through. a few more mature themes may not appeal to some, but i loved it.
10 out of 10
This is the best manga I have ever read. Finaly something different in the manga world.
i like it
this manga is really good. I love it. it's so beautiful and it makes you rreally into it. I think it's a great read.
One thing that makes this manga standout is the beautiful art and character designs. That alone helped me to slog through the first 3-4 volumes until the story picked up. After that, I thought both the art and story make this well worth reading. The wealth of characters can make this story a bit confusing at first but they often have distinctive personalities and characteristics so that after a bit, you'll soon sort them out. This wasn't one of my favorites nor one I'd highly recommend but it was entertaining and very enjoyable to look at...

One thing I will say is that I really liked the art. Buuuut... that's about all I really liked about Angel Sanctuary. The characters weren't very memorable for me, and the plot was unnecesarily confusing at times. Also... the incest just wasn't really believable for me. In general, I didn't really care for this manga. If you're looking for something dark and fantastical, I'd go check out something cooler like "Death Note" or "20th Century Boys."

The plot is interesting , drawings awesome ... WoW
A very intersting story that shows demons and angels in a different yet realistic light. For its 20 volumes it isnt long breathing in the least. It seems the whole plot was planned out from the beginning. everywhere are plottwists, drama, new encounters, old connections and interesting outturns. An artistic master piece. Its one of those titles you are not allowed to miss if you are into manga.
Really kewl story with awsome drawings. Although it gets a bit twisted, it's a definite must read
