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.

Alright, but Repetitive   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

This is not a manga that you should marathon through. Although some of the characters are fun (particularly Kitano and Ryoko) every arc in the manga is the same. It does have a nice message (don't judge others on appearances) it does not really do anything else. I can see this being more enjoyable if read over a staggered time, because otherwise it is quite obvious how recycled the jokes are.

Loved this to bits

I. Adored. This. It was absolutely one of my favorite mangas of all time. I totally didn't expect this too - at first, when looking at other people's comments about repetitive plot and stupid characters, I was prepared for it to just be good for a laugh. But once I started reading, I couldn't stop, and I read it all in one sitting, then the next day I went back and read my favorite bits again, and re-read them for good measure, and I ultimately came to the conclusion that I'm utterly a fan of this. Why? First off, I couldn't get enough of the characters - my favorite is Takahisa, and my least favorite is Kuroda, but each and every one of them have intriguingly distinctive personalities and cool roles to play and I enjoyed watching how they banded together around Kitano. Secondly, I really enjoyed the plot - I didn't find the running gags repetitive, because the outcome of each gag would happen in such different ways and keep me laughing constantly. And the ending? So. Badass. All in all, highly recommending this manga to everybody.

Light hearted and fun

This is a manga about characters in a world much like ours. However the world presented is a bit silly. People are very gullible, and tend to believe things are as they appear. It's nice watching the characters around Kitano grow and while he may not change much, he has a definite impact on the people around him. All in all angel densetsu is a sweet manga that isn't trying to be anything more than a light hearted comedy. I would recommend it.

Stretched a bit thin

This manga started out as a one-shot and you can really tell, since I think it struggles a bit to get beyond the premise, which also gets slightly repetitive and annoying since it does not fit a running series very well, but it eventually finds its focus, after which it shapes up into a good high school comedy, with a touch of slice-of-life to it. The colorful cast really brings life to it and it manages to evolve well beyond the initial gag.

Great moments, but gets repetitive   
Rating: 7.5 / 10.0

This series has hilarious moments with awesome art (for Kitano's face especially), and the concept was extremely interesting.

It gets really repetitive later on though. I soon got rather tired of the same pattern of people misunderstanding Kitano and trying to beat him up for no reason. There is not much satisfaction to be had when the perpetrators finally realize that they have the IQ of a gnat and give up. Though the series does have its highlights, often I also found myself waddling through rather generic dialogue to get to them.

Still, it was an interesting concept. If you enjoy this sort of gag comedy, definitely give it a go.

Really worth it

Man I liked this manga, I really did.
I'll also pay you little honesty and tell you I didn't like it at the beginning, it actually took me long to finish the first chapter, after that, it was 11hours to finish it all up.
Considering there are several mangas in the same fields as this one, it actually had a unique sense to it, just as it's art, I had a unique smirk all the while, an instinct squeeze of heart at times, an unusual flutter and beat at other times, and above all, I laughed it a lot, unprecedented laughs.
It's a rare sight for a manga to stand up being unique in a world of a must be unique to survive business but this one really did, I can't deny the pattern felt repeated and too much at times then again that was obviously intended to add up little surprise fact to plot, my only regret is how the manga seems short right after finishing it, I tell you, 84 chapters are too short you won't believe it ended.
All respect to author, your work of art are jewels in land of stones.

My Ten-Cents

Bah. I've never really been good at writing reviews about things, maybe I just give up too easily, but I liked this enough to want anyone out there who might even be slightly more inclined to read this because of what I said to be that bit more inclined, because I don't think they will regret it. Of course, if you are in the mood for a more action-packed, fast-paced story, this is not for you. It has it's fair share of what fits the "action" genre, but it isn't a story focused on the fighting.

I've found that plot summaries rarely ever portray the actual manga fairly, so seriously give this manga a try. The outrageous situations are funny, and the characters are endearing.

Again, if you want a fast-paced story full of martial artists beating each other up, or heroes hunting dragons etc. you should probably move on, the action genre tag has tricked you.

As other commenters have mentioned, the art might put you off. I remember when I first tried Claymore (same artist), I stopped after a while because I couldn't handle the art quality. But after reading this, I think I'm going to go back and give that a try.

As I glance back at the other comments and at the cover art mentioned in one of them, I want to stress again that the first impression of the art isn't everything.

Hm. I think what the guy who says that this manga is "Not that Great" mentions something that is reasonable. You could say that the same thing just kept on repeating, but honestly, I didn't want to the manga to end. I don't think that the artist was wrong to end it where he did, and if the manga did continue I don't know how the artist would have pulled it off without it actually becoming boring, but even thinking this, if it had continued I would have been more than happy to continue reading, though I might have found myself severely disappointed.

Anyway, enough of that. For anyone who typically just scans the numbers and skims the reviews (like me), I leave this message for you~ I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MANGA.

foot note: again, not action packed smile haha ~

To be honest I didn't really like it at first. Due to its high rating I slogged through the early chapters thinking how stupid these gags and characters were but somehow along the way, I got into its rhythm. I started to really like the characters (especially after the girls get introduced) and literally started laughing out loud at the absurd situations Kitano gets into. This manga is not going to be something that I'd remember dearly in a couple of years time but it was enjoyable read and I'd recommend giving it a good go.

Don't judge based on Appearances

This manga essentially teaches that it is important to look past mere physical appearances and judge the person based on who he/she is within. And I love it.

Ironically, I myself fell under the blunder of judging a book by its cover, and I didn't read this until 2 years later!!! It is so funny---Like laugh loud funny ha ha ha. Ever since I first read it, I've reread it twice, and I still laugh at all the gags and stuff.

It's fun stuff.

I would have liked it better had I been 11 years old
I honestly didn't find the story very interesting, but after looking at the reviews and a general rating of 9 or 10, I Thought I'd give it a shot. But it wuz very monotonous and got boring pretty fast.
Its not all bad though...

U get used to the art unless ur picky, so it wasn't an issue 4 me
Also, Its wuz pretty funny in d beginning... everyone thinks he's super scary but really is a nice guy and the poor thing keeps getting caught up in random fights but wins!

BUT THEN, The same thing keeps happening over and over again!
Tough Guy Comes--clueless protagonist randomly wins the fight without knowing that it wuz a fight--everyone thinks how scary he is and his reputation keeps increasing

THIS is literally what happens from ch-1 till ch-50...which is where I stopped reading...
[and let me tell u, I HATE leaving a MANGA halfway!]
I then skipped to d last chapter where, guess what?! The same thing wuz happening! @(>__<)@
It should have been shorter, like around 30-50 chapters

MY ADVICE, if ur gonna read this then go through it really fast or stop when u start getting bored...
unless u can handle d monotony I mean, then please do read d entire saga

BTW, I like mangas like:
ares, saver, subaru, The Breaker, skip beat, noblesse, gamaran etc...
so according to my tastes, this manga wuz hardly average
