Angel Densetsu

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.

Very hilarious. Although the gags are technically repetitive, they don't feel that way. This is sure to crack you up. And the art? Not exactly good, but I don't care.

Probably the only thing I have going against this is that it dragged on too long for its own good. It doesn't help that it's episodic, either. And Kuroda's freaking annoying. Haha, just had to say that.

I recommend this to everyone, but I would also like to recommend not to finish this in one go. A very good read on the side, if you will.

I thought i've read every decent shounen manga out there, until i stumbled upon Angel Densetsu. I've experienced a traumatic series ROFLMAOBBQ every single chapter.

I too judged the book by its cover and put this one aside for a long time, I'm glad i finally picked it up.

A true masterpiece.

It was about 20 minutes ago that i finished reading this manga and the truth is that it almost made me cry. I will be honest when i say that if you look down my 'currently reading' list you'l see one hell of a lot of manga all with one thing in common and that is the art. It would also be a lie if i said i dont judge a book by its cover, as all the manga im refering to in that list follows the Negima and Rosario + Vampire style of drawing, the furthest from it being series such as Bleach and Naruto. But as i continued to search through the Baka Updates Manga database one series continued to crop up, ticking all the boxes i was looking for, Angel Densetsu, and after putting it off a couple of times due to my first impresion of the art i decided to give it a go. I was hooked from chapter one. Sorry if i have lost you with my rambling alredy but there is one very important thing i have to get across, and that is the amount of emotion and geniune heart that is put into this series. I dont know if any of you know the songs Soothsayer by Buckethead or The Ministry of Lost Souls by Dream Theater but this manga brings forth the same feelings within me as these songs, a sort of mix between happy and sad, something that realy makes you contemplate life and the world we live in and relate it to the charcters in the story. This series has realy made me learn one thing and that is definately do not judge a book by its cover.

On a less serious/preachy note this manga is also funny as hell and i would definately reccomend it. Thanks for reading this, i hope it inspires some of you to read this series.

This is a fun and even sweet series. There's good timing and delivery of some of the jokes. It sometimes had me rolling on the floor. However, after time it does get a little repetitive. I think the mangaka could have fleshed out the romance aspect more and done a few other things to give the series a little more meat on its bones. The art is fine you will get used to it, the main character is supposed to be scary looking after all. The mangaka is the same guy who does Claymore and you can see some of the similarities in art style.

I enjoyed this series, but it needed more development so I can't give it a 10, but still a very decent series.

Yeah, Kitano is a kind and honest boy, but there are plenty of good guys without a monster face. Ryoko, think of the future of your children. Aside from that the comedy part is well done. You deserve 6 points.

The art can take some time getting used to, but the story and the comedy are off the charts. Its the type of manga you can reread and still find it funny. I find the story to be original along with the characters and would recommend this to anyone who wants to read something with comedy and little bit of odd romance.

OK, the art might turn you off a little bit, but the plotline is HILARIOUS. Comedy manga/anime turn me off because all the ones that I have read only made me chuckle at the most, BUT THIS MADE ME LAUGH ALL DAY. I mean, even my SISTER LIKED IT! Please give this a try. It is NOT a waste of your time.

So funny, I love the mischief Kitano gets himself into. At first the series focuses on comedy but then the focus changes to character growth. My favourite character was Ikuno - she's so unbelivevably un-shoujoish that it lol I really recommend this series to everyone because it shouldn't be missed. (especially recommended for people who want LESS stupid, weak, whiny girls with big boobs and who look strangely american)
I finished this series within a few days =DD so with an extra plus it's relatively short

This is a manga about a really sweet, naive and innocent guy. Only, he was born with the face that looks like the devil. People call him 'demon' or 'devil' the moment they see him. Because he looks like this, many people think he's a junkie, a delinquent or any guy who will kick your ass if he'll stare at you.

But Kitano is not a drug addict - he's just a simple boy abiding by the rules, getting good grades at school, and hopes (wishes as well) that he'll manage to get 1 friend in his high school. Because of his face, he's never had any friends and people stay away from him or try to pick a fight with him because his face looks like he's 'challenging' someone. But no one dares to really fight him; his face is too scary, so they all surrender to him and proclaim him as the 'school guardian'. Which basically means you're the toughest guy in school.

That's how Angel Densetsu starts. You might think this is going to be a drama manga with the serious looking art and story premise. However, if you read at least 2 chapters, you'll notice this isn't a drama; this is hilarious! Angel Densetsu plays hilarious jokes on Kitano's appearance and the misunderstandings he gets into. There are frequent brawl fights, fists being thrown around, and A LOT of misunderstandings.

The jokes are really funny the first 40 chapters. Every time I see Kitano's face when he goes 'kyaaaa!' makes me laugh out loud. Unfortunately there is a downside; the jokes get way too repetitive and just how many misunderstanding can Kitano cause? I think the mangaka realized his jokes were running thin and he focuses more on the characters and developing them.

Angel Densetsu has got a great supporting cast, and I don't think I dislike any of the characters. In fact, one character (a blonde boy who becomes best friends with Kitano after Kitano supposedly 'beats' him in a fight) is one of the most developed of them all (he's the only one who changes in regards to personalty throughout the whole series) - and he's just a supporting character. Kitano is surprisingly one dimensional; but you can't help but like him. His love interest is an ass-kicking girl who is the first one to see Kitano's good side and eventually falls for him (but not much happens between them).

Many people dislike Angel Densetsu because of its art, but I must be in the minority here when I say I didn't mind the 'bad' art at all. I thought it fit perfectly with Kitano's scary face. However, the art really grows in later volumes. If you compare the first chapter with the last one, you'd have no idea those were the same characters. The mangaka developed his own style by the end of the series and the characters really shine through.

The ending was very nice and it didn't disappoint me; that's how it should end. I especially loved the character development of the blond haired guy in the last few chapters. I only wish they made the headmaster of his school realize Kitano is a good guy, not a bad gangster.

I recommend this manga to anyone who loves a good laugh and who likes heartwarming friendship stories!

I say u should definetly give it a chance! In the beginning it seems sure weird, and the characters are not perfect, made me laugh so much and even thought it kind of got old in the end u can skip and if I put away the manga few days I would be fired up again to read it. So damn funny!!! (:
