Good .. until the hiatus

DN Angel started good, it's a typical shoujo series with cool guys and cute girls. The chemistry between the characters were good (albeit some complaints about bromance between some characters). It might end well too but the series was prolonged with no clear direction, and eventually the author went hiatus on it.

Well, this series was like one of my first manga for me (along with CardCaptor Sakura and Case Closed) and I used to love the characters. I can only say that it's a pity that the author has tendency to left her work(s) unfinished.

I couldn't really recommend it to anyone, but I will say that the first maybe 9 volumes or so were good (at least it was good for the junior high school student version of me)...

watch the anime and drop the manga!

I watched the anime, it's enjoyable and the ending was a bit satisfying, for me.

I shouldn't have continued with the manga, it just drags on and on with pointless stuff, and the unresolved ending is vexing.

Hiatus >:0

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.

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!

Pretty good

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.

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.

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.

I picked it up again, believing that the manga will still be just as good as I remembered it to be... It wasn't. My rating went from a 7 to a 4...

The artwork is typical of 90s to 2000s: more or less identical attractive characters with fantastic flair for fashion, only differentiated by their hair color. And while that is not the biggest issue, it is something entertaining for a short moment before it becomes a boring yet consistent concept. Compared to its anime counterpart (which I have seen ages ago and am never interested in it), it fares pretty well. All in all, the artwork is generally okay and will hold for the rest of the plot.

Speaking of plot, it's got a lot of holes. It's like...the mangaka had ONE idea she thought would be good to write about... And then figures it'll work out when she starts throwing ideas together to make a plot out of. I can tell because some arcs still have a lot of holes but it doesn't get answered until possibly the next plot when the previous one has become irrelevant to the new one. By the third solid arc, it became repetitive in the whole "artwork stealing" routine with no new material or answers that'll take us closer to the secrets of the Niwa and Hikari Families. I think the glue that held the entire plot together was the basic humor and character-building elements of all the characters (and thus my 4* rating).

The thing that sucks about this manga is its extremely slow-paced in revealing the entire truths of secrets, the repetitive collection and stealing of all of the Hikari artworks, and the grudge between the two families. The manga is supposed to last a LOT longer but its constant hiatus basically deprives readers of the enjoyment. The mangaka should have just powered through the series to give it a proper ending, answering most questions readers have, so that she doesn't have to leave us hanging at the beginning of a new arc.
