Twelve year old Misaki Suzuhara never thought of herself as a champion. She especially didn't think of herself as a fighter. That is, not until she came to Tokyo to live with her aunt Shouko and search for the mom she hasn't seen in years. As soon as she arrives, little Misaki sees a giant video screen showing a battle between two women: a larger one garbed in black, and a smaller one wearing white. Enthralled at their amazing fight, Misaki immediately falls in love with the game when the smaller woman wins. In this game, she sees, size doesn't matter. Curious to know more, Misaki has the good luck of running into an older man who goes by 'Icchan,' wiggles about like a serpent, is prone to sudden crazy behavior, and becomes her mentor in the game. The women, he reveals, are actually dolls called Angels, and they are controlled by players called Deuses in the game Angelic Layer. Anyone, even someone as young and as little as Misaki, can play. Hooked by his words of encouragement, ... Written by LainEverliving - Scribe of the Wired

Awesome without a doubt
5 October 2006 | by (Shakuras) – See all my reviews

I first read all of the manga, and was rather depressed because it was so good and cool... but it ended after a mere five books. Kind of like drinking a really good drink, and looking at the bottom of the glass and having that depressed feeling.

Back to the anime now. It was different than the manga in several ways; some more enjoyable, some that added an EXTREME twist, and some that were just slightly disappointing. Happens with all animes though... Chobits had the cute little Plum, and in the anime her name became Sumomo... Plum is cuter. It's ending was also different as well.

Age wise, it is perfect. It has elements that teenagers and little kids alike will like, although some parts are a little bit too kiddish, it's still a well rounded good anime.

I had read all the manga, and saw the box set at Best Buy and bought it. It was around forty, but it was well worth it.

And now I depart.
