User Reviews

Nice original story line with beautiful art.
11 July 2003 | by linkaestheticSee all my reviews

Angel Sanctuary is quite a complicated anime. It is not meant for young viewers or ones that get weirded out by certain love interests. Kaori Yuki has a very unigue style of art that is both mysterious and beautifull. This anime is probably one of her best works. It is about an angel that rebelled against God and lost, thus being reborn as a human boy. However now, Angels and Demons alike flock towards his awaking, thirsting for battle that only Alexiel can bring.
