Been a while since I’ve had a manga opinion up here ^^; It’s sad that I have these all written out but I keep lagging behind in posting them.
It’s just me talking about what I liked and didn’t like about something :3
Gotta admit, this manga was definitely out there.
Title: Angel Sanctuary #1
Manga-ka: Kaori Yuki
At the center of this epic tale of Heaven and Hell and forbidden love is high-school student Setsuna Mudo. He’s no angel – he’s completely tactless around girls, has an unpredictable temper, and can become extremely violent. That he comes from a broken home and is in love with his sister Sara just makes matters worse! Add teenage hormones and major issues with his mother, and you’ve got the recipe for one troubled kid!
And then Setsuna’s reality becomes seriously twisted when his past life as an angel starts to plague the present and threatens to destroy the future…
Got this from my local library (yeah, I’m shocked at a library carrying manga – I’m so used to my crap library that had jack in it!).
The story follows a brother and sister. The brother has a thing for his sister. Later we find that his sister also has a thing for him.
Anyway, it seems the brother has something supernatural about him. Demons and angels suddenly start appearing. Some want to kill the brother, others want to protect him. Seems brother is a reincarnation of someone important – a female angel who tried to overthrow heaven. However, something happened and the coup failed.
Add in the brother of the female angel wanting the brother dead, the fact the brother’s friend might not be who we think he is, and that everyone seems to like to reincarnate into the opposite gender and you have Angel Sanctuary. Oh, and everyone is really abusive.
Gotta say, Angel Sanctuary is definitely…out there.
Never mind the incest thing.
Since this is only volume #1, it’s natural we’d be left in the dark. What happened in the past is definitely playing a part with what’s happening right now.
We are introduced to a whole lot of characters. I haven’t really formed any thoughts on them. I kind of like the brother’s BFF but that might just because he’s the only one not lusting over his sister/opposite gender reincarnation (but from what my friend said, that’s going to change real quick).
Not sure how I feel about this manga. I’m sort of creeped out about the brother x sister thing. Just kind of…weird. But that’s just me personally. The library only had the first volume so this is probably where I’m going to stop. I’m not interested enough to go out and buy my own copies. Plus my friend told me what happened (I love the way she explains things. She made this sounded so wtf messed up that I had to check it out – but I found her summary more entertaining than the source material x3).
