This OAV is like "The Prophecy" but with an emotional attachment
10 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

okay, this is by far the best anime series i have EVER seen, it deals with a more realistic view of "the almighty". Its about the reincarnated soul of a fallen angel who went up against god's passifistic and uncaring ways and decided to pass judgment on him, but at the crucial point of the battle , Alexiel exhausts her powers and losses.She is then split in two, body and soul, the body is locked away in a crystal deep within the angelic domain and her spirit is casted into the human world to be reborn over and over again and to die in a horrible tragic way in every life.

One of her reincarnations is within a boy named Setsuna who has a "biblical" affection for his blood sister. Since incest is considered a very big "taboo" in japan, they are cast out by their friends and loved ones. So the story focuses on both Alexiel's role in the battle with god and on Setsuna and Sara's love ,and the question becomes, can their love survive the wrath of god?
